    I see RS6 people reaching class A here. Is it bad that I reached A class with RS 10 already? I'm still missing 4 minor handling and 1 minor brake upgrades. If I'm gonna be paired with other RS10 with fully upgraded best-in-track cars, how can I win points in this situation?

    edit. nvm, i made the points for the remaining upgrades fairly fast

    I was barely RS5 when I hit A.  I used the first guide to get to A and the Cosworth went through B like butter.

    I demolished Class B, barely stayed there long enough to realise I was ever a part of it xD - 5 RS as well. Now 7RS with 2 Maxed cars and about to max the third, this guide is solid and if you follow it. You will defo achieve your goal.

    I don't completely understand the car set-ups, tbh. The setups (for example (T) (SR) (T2) only include Track Tires, Paddleshift Gearbox Short Ratio, Adjustable Coil-over suspension and Turbo 2, correct?

    I will eventually buy more upgrades, though. won't the original set-up be diluted by the other upgrades I choose?

    You always get the best upgrades, except when they only improve safety. However, there are three upgrades where the "best" upgrade is conditional: tarmac/dirt, short/long ratio, and turbo 2/3. So you buy the upgrades that are always the best, and then the three that are best for the course the car is intended to run.

    Does that help?

    I have a question about the dirt Honda NSX.  Your description states:  "(D) (SR) (T3) covers 2 dirt tracks (T3) as the best car and can be used for all dirt tracks until you acquire other dirt cars".  However, in the individual track descriptions, there are 3 NSX cars mentioned.  Parkland says SR T3, Two Islands says LR T3, and Hammerhead says SR T2...for a total of 3 separate cars, instead of 1 car that can handle 2 tracks and one to handle a single track.  I'm assuming there's a typo in there somewhere?

    They are different cars.

    You end up with a few NSXs that are upgraded in different ways for different tracks.

    The NSX (D)(SR)(T3) covers Parkland and Hammerhead as the best car.

    The NSX (D)(LR)(T3) covers Two-Islands.

    The NSX (T)(SR)(T2) covers Underdog, Commerce, and Sewage.

    The NSX (T)(SR)(T3) covers Industrial, Vector and Meltdown.

    OK, thank you. so the difference between the set-ups will shrink when you have a lot of upgrades (as when you have a top speed of 200 anyway, 4 more ore less is not that much) but yet there will be a difference that matters after all.

    Thanks for the clarification.  So, there's a typo in the OP, because it shows Hammerhead as SR T2.  That was the source of confusion.

    Continuing the discussion above -- if I'm upgrading a Honda NSX (D) (SR) (T3) as my first dirt car, can I expect it to perform decently on the other dirt tracks (Stone Park & Two Islands)? or will it do poorly in comparison to the 'niche' Honda NSX for each of those tracks?

    Does anyone know if it is worth using a fully upgraded dirt NSX on mudpit or a cosworth with class B upgrades as well?

    No, actually, sorry, that was my f**k up. Compounding typos. I mistook what you were confused about. I was making the point that you upgrade many NSXs for different tracks.

    I only have 1 dirt car myself (NSX D SR T2) and it performs fine on all dirt tracks. It will drastically outperform non-dirt cars on those tracks. It obviously still won't perform as well as a car tuned for that specific track though.

    Thanks for this, can properly take it in now I have smol racing experience. Such a rich part of the game that it takes a while to work it all out :D

    In case my newbie records help anyone else - racing licence acquired only mid-April and I have to fly for income which means I don't race as much as I want to (can't wait for next chain ;p):

    I pretty much flew through E class (less than a week) with Clio for tarmac, Mini for dirt, both stripped out only. I didn't like my Volvo - have kept it anyway of course, I want to love it 'cos I like them RL. On reading this guide, I reckon that is due to the invisible car experience: poor Volvo hasn't got any yet, must do some custom races with it.

    Class D took about 10 days: MR2 with mods recommended by Makeshift raciing guide (sorry, it was the guide my bird brain found simplest at the time) worked really well for tarmac, Used a lightly modded Hummer (strip out and uprated springs only) for dirt.

    Class C is taking (quite a lot) longer, and I'm OK with that, still under 4 RS and would like build up a bit before I get to higher classes - using Corvette for tarmac, BMW Z8 for dirt, minimum mods on both and should have a good number of points to uprade Cossie for Class B (yeah, must buy one sometime ~grin).

    Looking forward to being able to join in with more as I get better, thanks to all contributors for sharing their knowledge which helps the new to speed up progress :)

    Good.  My only comment is this: us dark mode users can't read anything.  Really would appreciate if you changed the text colors.
