I'm eager to see what people will be able to achieve here. My C-class car is an R8 that I just threw together without any attempt at finding the best combination of parts. It has still been extraordinary online, but I suppose the real test comes here. Did a few laps yesterday, but I was too eager testing the patch, so I didn't upload any screenshots. Stictly unofficial, my best so far is 2:19.3. If I match my best sector times on all six sectors, it would be about 2:18.8, but there's probably more to get by trying different parts. I won't be surprised if we see below 2:15 by the best guys. I also have a feeling the last chicane can be cut a lot more than I do...
If you cut just a little more then your time is invalidated. I find it natural to draw the line where the line really is. If you get a valid time then you didn't cut too much. It gets difficult to govern if you have the typical two-wheels-on-the-track-rule in a competition where it isn't required to upload a video.
Then again, this is a trust-based competition. There's nothing keeping people from using a more powerful car in the race and then remove the added upgrades before they take the screenshot of the car's rating. The biggest point with PBRCs - in my opinion - is to push yourself, and be pushed even further by others, and in this regard it's completely pointless to cheat.
Looking forwards to see what you will do out there.
It's true, Skrotingen. And the problem is the many noobs and children in a game like this, if a cut is possible people will do it and it will show up on leaderboards. So to get the fastest times you cant regulate it.
I would be curious to see what people can do with the shelby cobra here also.. After the patch I can now change the gear ratios on that thing and it should be really fast, just a little more inconsistent maybe.
skroting: I must admit that I thought your lap time would be good, but I might even underestimated you that being said Tried a couple times today and best I could produce with the Audi was 2,18,5. With Caterham Superlight I got a 2,20,5
I did some various tests with possibly fast cars and theyre parts. First of all, thanks to Skroting for finding the R8 - an awesome C-class car ! I've never thought that the R8 could be that fast with only few tuning options. I'm using this one in B-class, and it's really awesome. It seems he don't need forced induction to be a rocket (the V10 swap is simply great).
Some achieved results -
Porsche Cayman S - I am using him for C-class career events, not bad result for a 382 HP car : C998 with NOS
Audi R8 : C995 without NOS
And for comparing purposes only, two older legends -
Toyota Corolla AE86 - this is called by a grip : C996 with NOS
Shelby Cobra 427 - untouchable : C999 without NOS
About that Cobra, Tomas, I'm using her for long time as C-class car. She is unbeatet yet, with Norschleife run 6.53 w/out NOS and rough mistakes. This car has an awesome potencial, with freshly installed v1.01 patch we can finally tune the gear ratios, so the times could be improved. I have the 2.14.7 run, if anyone is interested.

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): Haven't it been quite dead for a while now? It's really a shame, as back when this was awesome place to hang out, and, well. I did stop being that active here, as unfortunatelly I kind of lost my love towards Need For Speed games. It's a shame, really...

CmdrTomalak (PC/PS3/PS4): Yep. Dead. Dead. Dead... Somebody should put it out of its misery. It all started waaaaaay back when Most Wanted came out and we all met on the EA forums and decided to branch out on our own. Sad way to go...

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): And unfortunately, the way Need For Speed games were for quite long time didn't help this place at all, for starters, I dropped off from NFS games completely. I did get both Shifts, Hot Pursuit (2010) and later Rivals, but they weren't enough...

Chandrian: I don't know how many of you know, but for a while, NFS World has worked very well on a public online server (probably a month or more since it became more stable), containing over 150k registered players.
Sept 7, 2018 14:15:36 GMT
Chandrian: The sync is now allowing races with more than 2 players, and pretty much all original NFSW features are working. The best part is that everything is available for in-game cash on this server.
Sept 7, 2018 14:15:53 GMT
Chandrian: You have to start with a new driver profile, but the progression isn't that hard. If you wanna play NFSW online again, then I advise downloading the launcher of this online server and also joining this Discord server:
