[UK] AdrenalineX Racing - Car tier list based on perfomance
« on: January 27, 2021, 01:18:43 am »
Long time ago I made a test track so everyone can try their skills behind the wheel of every each car in game on the same track and compare the results.

TOP TIMES AND VEHICLE LIST


The point was to push every car to the limit and clock the best time possible to obtain enough data to group cars by performance.
While there are threads about top speeds of every car, top speed is not the only factor when it comes to racing. In fact it is not really that important at all.
I decided to group cars with similar lap times so our race makers can use this as reference if they want to use more than one model.

So... how does it work?
Simple. There are tiers and each tier has top and bottom performers.
For example vehicles from B2 can be used against B1 as well as C1 but they are too strong competitors to race against C2 and too weak to fight with A2.
And of course B1 are able to go against A2 or B2 but they are too weak for A1 and too strong for C1.. and so on. Apart from bikes but that will be explained in bikes section.
Of course every each vehicle has own advantages and features. Some cars may be faster on straights, some may be better in corners. This list however is based on performance on balanced track featuring all kind of corners. Now we can know that different vehicles with different driving characteristics like for example Bobcat, Oceanic or Taxi can race against each other with no problems.

Bikes
There aren't many bikes in game and performance gaps are much bigger so there's no need for extra tiers like with cars.
B tier bikes stand no chance against A tier and they are way too overpowered when facing C and NRG500 is pretty much untouchable.
However A tier bikes can still somehow compete with S1 tier cars. And the same goes for every other tier listed there but bikes still have one advantage over cars - the ability of wheelie or tapping. That's why you should be careful if you want to put Sanchez (B tier bike 2:15 time) against let's say Sandking (B1 tier car with also 2:15 time) despite similar performance on paper. In this case a lot depends on track too.  For example Sanches may be too fast offroad even if Sandking scored similar track times. This is just for information and due to tapping I still do not recommend putting bikes vs cars in the same race. Quad is the only exception as tapping does not affect the performance so in theory you should be able to make a very interesting race with Quad, Duneride and all 3 Monster Trucks but that's up to you.
