And here are the impacts, with other cars or with the environment, only during the races. Only impacts over 30 kph get any amount of damage restrictor. All of the restrictor amounts are cumulative for the race. As expected, there's not much damage restrictor in the Beemers, but the XBow fares worse, with bigger crashes and impacts with barriers and so on.

For anyone who wasn't there and is curious, the BMW gave much closer and consistent racing, being the easier car to drive. There were some good racing packs.


The XBow field became much more spread out, with various spins and offs. The XBow is much more of a challenge to drive, but rewards someone who can drive it consistently.

Out of these two the BMW would make the closest racing, it is still quite forgiving if you slide off, then with reverse grid and damage restrictor should keep everyone even closer. For someone who is not consistent (me) the ktm is such a pain, the consistent guys will walk away with it even with reverse grid. I'll go with whatever though I'm easy

Haha sounds right. All of these were with the environment I believe  ;D My pedals wern't hitting 100% so I had to replug and restart AC etc so didn't get any practice time in at qually.

BMW definitely produced close racing but it was a little easy/boring to drive. Even though I spun off a lot on the KTM I preferred it over the two. Nice to drive a car with the h-shifter for a Tuesday season too.

You're just saying that because you know the Lotus is coming!! You were the only person driving that KTM in my very first season at XGN.

I'll go the other way. Love the KTM, one of my favorite cars but are tempted to vote for the BMW to ensure a close racing season. The BMW also offer TC as additional help for drivers who had a bit too much to drink on race night  ;D

Just remember to not put the BMW in gear on the start line  :o

Had a pretty good race night. Got a little practice in the KTM which was nice. I personally like the KTM over the BMW as it's a car you have to be consistent and smooth and the feedback is excellent. The BMW felt like driving a boat and you could drive it like an arcade game with no real penalty. Having said that, the BMW does give very close racing which is great fun.

I haven't driven the other 2 cars at all yet so I'll give them a go on the weekend.

Yeah, impacts above 100 kph are typically with the environment.

I think it is sort of cockney slang - Australianised.
