Nobody said anything about lap times. There are no perks that help with lap times, they said they had a high multiplier while hooning to make it interesting.
That it does. I might enjoy taking that one up and down the runway and freeways for a bit. That said, it also perfectly encapsulates everything I don’t like about the current gen of performance EVs - they’re big, heavy, and seemingly homogeneous in shape and performance. I really want to see someone do an EV that can take a corner as well as it can fly down a straight…
…and let’s be honest, that someone’s probably going to be Porsche at this rate.
Per my previous /s comment, I would have to say that my experience was less than pleasant when it came to driving this in the Rivals event. It definitely has great speed, but virtually no grip & requires a significant amount of finesse & throttle discipline to keep positive contact with the road, at least for me (on XSX w/controller). This is one of those cars I had to significantly “DOPE the scope” with in order to find lines that would successfully carry the speed & not just skid across the surface like ice. I eventually set a clean lap for the event, but didn’t spend much more time trying to improve it bc of the above. Depending on the tuning options, I’d say it has significant potential though.
Yeah, I did the Rivals again and found that I have to treat any easy curve like an extended drift with feathered throttle throughout the turn. It seems the wheels just straight up have no grip if there isn’t power to them at high speeds, which is the exact opposite of conventional wisdom (iirc)
the lucid will be a great stunt and off-road car, I can’t imagine it’ll be any good on road, other than making supercars look supersilly in a straight line
And take that AI…wow were they rowdy. Gave em the business with the scout. First try won with the silverado…by sheer gerth and monster truck style.
Awesome Ford Mustang, 5 stars.
Thanks, much appreciated.
