Won an eliminator head to head (1vs1)

And it upgrades my ford bronco 21 (level 7) to some pos truck with no grip.

Is this stuff ever playtested? Seriously.
Can we get an option to NOT upgrade after a win?

In FH4 Eliminator you could choose to not accept the upgrade (neither the +1 level or the take-the-loser’s-ride) by pressing DOWN on the D-pad instead of LEFT or RIGHT, haven’t tried it in FH5 yet but I’d be surprised if they took that out.
