    All,

    I have spent some time looking deeper into the differences between the older Alfa, the newer Alfa and the Opel and Mercedes.  I have a list of the cars, along with all the information about them.  Please use this information when selecting a car to run in the series.

    I am still not opposed to having all A group racers run the Alfa and the B group racers the Opel.  We will have to see how they compare before we make a final decision.

    Is the Mercedes just plain noncompetitive according to the dimensions and  and background information.  You are saving me from going down a rabbit hole if that is true.  My potential MB purchase is sentimental based on my Dad’s 3 MB’s, but I am trying to be more competitive from the purchase onward.

    Randy,

    I have no idea if the Mercedes is competitive.  Part of every series, especially new ones, is the discovery of what does and does not work easily.  The best way to determine if the Mercedes is competitive is to buy one and set it up.  Setting up a car is 98% of the performance.  Some cars are competitive right out of the box while others require some work to get to the same level.  Cars that some have said were uncompetitive others have been able to get them to work.  This is the only new series and I am looking forward to running it just because I find it fun and enjoyable to set up a new car and working to get the most out of it.  Good luck with your Mercedes.  Can’t wait to see it running on the track.

    Marty, do you have the raw XLS file? The image you posted obviously does not include the Merc. Are there other rows and columns also not visible? Just curious … el Araña

    Mark,

    I posted the information again with the Mercedes info.  When I used the Snipping tool I accidentally left off the Mercedes models.

    I’m going to wait out the Mercedes silver availability and if it is not available I ‘ll go Opel.
