How strong is the Race On AI?

Been running laps around Road America, trying to get a respectable lap time. I've been comparing my practice times to those the AI gets at 95%, and I'm just slightly faster on a good day (getting increasingly consistent, thankfully).

What I sorta want to know is, though, just how decent IS the AI? I know the first time I race online I'll get spanked, that doesn't bother me...but I would like to know if I can use the AI times as a guideline for what I should be shooting for.

Not speaking out of experience unfortunately, due to crappy internet connection
but I asked the same question before

They say you should be able to win races with the AI set at 100%
if you want to compete with the midfield online.

Been practicing a lot offline as well. ;-)

(I also read here at RD that the AI of WTCC-cars is stronger than for example the one of the GT-cars
but I don't know how much exactly)

Dont drive much against the AI but the times i do they are quite easy to beat. Biggest problem is that they dont drive consistent and very weird (constant braking in corners). RACE is fun online but offline it misses a lot

Tim: Thanks. I've beat them at 100 before, so being able to do it consistently is a doable goal I think. That's encouraging.:)

Bram: I've heard that it's a much better time online. Wireless can't get here fast enough...
