    Class A racer, as many points as needed — what is the best setup for this car?

    RD's guide 2.0 has it at Turbo 3, Dirt, Long Ratio for mudpit

    All other upgrades would be the highest available class A upgrade.

    With no safety you end up with 266 points invested for 45 uogrades.

    Thanks!
    What about the other upgrades — I assume it can only take class B upgrades, so is there a recommended setup for those?

    Have you even casually glanced at the postings on this page? It is just 8 entries from the top:
    https://www.torn.com/forums.php#/p=threads&f=21&t=16241510&b=0&a=0

    And the upgrades available are not related to the car, but to your racing class.

    Is the Sierra definitely Long? 

    I only ask because that guide has Lexus as Long for Withdrawal but I see consistent out-performance from Short, and in fact I was advised to make it Short before I saw his guide.

    The guide also states Lambo for Uptown, but global stats show that of the three best performing cars, Lambo is none of them.

    Makes sense — I didn't realize you could put class A upgrades on a class B car. For now I'm assuming the rest of the needed upgrades are just the 'generic' class A upgrades.

    I use short ratio on mudpit, hammerhead, stone park, parkland and long ratio on two islands. So... I have more than one cosworth.

    But RD_'s guide is the only one I know that had a team of racers attempt to statistically validate the settings so I tend to refer people to that not my own gut feelings.

    Short for best laps, Long for better consistent finish times. The former becomes better than the latter the higher your RS gets.

    Ahh I see thank you - is that true for all cars and tracks? Any idea at what point they switch over?

    There should be like another one or two setups like this in Class A but I don't think it works for all cars/tracks. Also don't know any numbers at which point the "break-even" point may be. My guess would be somewhere at 40-50 but that's just a guess.
