which car is better?

Discussion in 'iRacing' started by Joe Hubbard, Feb 25, 2011.

  1. I have that $5 credit burning a hole in my virtual pocket and wanted to know which was better. The Silver Crown, or the Sprint Car?
     
  2. How long is a piece of lace? :)

    JK, i´m not into ovals at all but the Monte Carlo at Spa is the most fun i´ve ever had in a sim before, by a mile so when i read that they are releasing a little gocart with more hp then kilos that really got me interested.

    I haven´t bought it yet but if i were you i would;)
     
  3. haven't got any of those 2
    so i can't help u
     
  4. I can't help either cause I haven't got any of those cars.

    I would be worried about participation in the series though. The Silver Crown never had a big following and struggled in participation numbers... could imagine that it would be similar for the Sprint Car in the long run. They're quite strange cars after all :)
     
  5. yeah I had thought about that and didn't know if they had a large following or not. Plus I don't know if I'll even like them. Perhaps I'll get another track or two.
     
  6. I have both cars and my pick would be the silver crown but it is just like many of the other higher level races as you have to see which time slots are hot and plan out your races. To me the silver crown feels like a go cart on steriods, it's a 2 speed and feels pretty balanced. On the other hand the sprint car is a 1 speed and feels like it will turn left with out any notice. Thinks to consider, the sprint car runs mostly on short 1/2 mile tracks with very close battles, while the silver crown does best IMO on the 1-1.5 mile tracks. If you liked the sk cars with the offset seat then you will mostly like the sprint car, the silver crowns seat is in the middle and like I said feels more balanced.
     
  7. I think the man who devised the Sprint Car had been on a long weekend in Amsterdam before he put pen to paper on his blueprints, lol.

    I bought it, tried it, came away confused as hell, lol.

    Maybe one day I will understand the concept of the car. At least it will count towards my 100% in the not too distant future, if that's the only purpose it ends up serving, lol.

    :)
     
  8. I fully intend to race everyone of my cars, I'm just in no hurry to race the sprint car.
