Ever tried to de-tune the Buick Special '62?
« on: Jul 25, 2012, 11:57 am »

Today I tried to tune down the '62 Buick Special to use it in the new classic seasonals, and I had strange results;
When I added weight to the ballast, not only did the PP not go down, it went up! Then I tried reducing the power with the engine limiter, and the PP also went up! PP even increased when I swapped the upgraded parts for standard parts (exhaust, etc.)
What is going on? ???

On a side note I also found out that it can not be used anyhow, as the game doesn't actually consider it manufactured in 1962.

I've never used it since getting it, but generally speaking, the PP increasing when adding ballast is quite common, especially if it is placed towards the driven wheels, because the game considers it to be improving grip and therefore increasing performance, so the PP goes up.

I'm gonna log on now and check out the other stuff you mentioned, as that sounds a bit strange...!   :o
