Consistency of rules

Normally I wouldn’t gripe at all but I’ve been trying to do The eliminator here for a while on Forza horizon 5 and it amazes me how I can be so far ahead of an individual who challenges me as well as being in a number five or even seven car and then I get my ass whipped to buy a two how does that happen makes me not want to play

Was the level 2 a Audi RS6?

Not sure if this thread helps
