Due to the car’s obscenely low specs, well below the D100 lower limit in the game, the P50 can actually be substantially upgraded and still be ranked “D100”. Doing that, combined with the car’s extreme light weight, makes a car that is completely unbeatable in D100, “minimum spec” races. Upgrading the car’s performance should upgrade its spec to a comparable level based on its acceleration and top speed. You can literally run circles around other D100 cars in drag races and win.
And you guys all thought this was a joke topic asking to nerf the “worst” car in the game just to make fun of all the other “nerf this car plz” topics. Ha!
It needs nerfing for those who like running C and D class rivals. It’s silly to have a mode where one car is probably an average of 10 seconds quicker on a lot of different tracks. I don’t really do C or D class rivals but it’s fair to say that I’d be a lot more likely to do so if the Peel didn’t exist. For those who actively enjoy challenging themselves with lower class cars, it must be a real irritation.
While being interesting in automotive history, both the Peel and the Isetta are complete disasters in Horizon. The physics engine can’t handle the size and weight of those vehicles. Ever notice when you hit a solid object with either of those vehicles, they try to continue to drive through the object instead of bouncing off?
IMO, remove them from rival events completely, just like FM7 did for open wheel cars online.
I can’t say I’m that concerned about people not being able to run the Peel in B and A. That said, I really meant banning rather than nerfing. Ban it from C and D rivals and then all those really wanting to run it in B and A class can still do so. Simple fix.
