I’d like to get some competitions/leaderboards going for sure, and MP4-X, as the apex car of the game, is a favorite. With a few exceptions (like the farming races), participation was never all that strong. In that Mt Pan race I posted, I was already in the top spot - I was racing myself and trying to break 12:00. #2 was GizmOh and he set that about 2 years ago. So expectations should be low for anything new.
There’s quite healthy participation in the new weekly WTTT thread, and a bunch of hot shoes competing. The new format means everyone is focused on the same thing. Plus it pays GC, of course. I think the best shot is one more additional weekly challenge, with user generated content. I like leaderboards, but with 200+ cars and 40+ tracks/configurations, It’s real hard to get enough people focused on the same events.
For the MP4-X, I leave you with this, a product of ~10min last night and 90min tonight (home alone on a Friday, a rarity).

Do it! I don't doubt you can, but it's gonna make you work. That was a real hero run, one of those 'put down the phone, that's the one, no use trying to even match it again' kinda runs.
While you're at it, go for that whole set. You'll see me #30, 1:00.888 (0.998 off leader) at Monza, and #20, 0:23.130 (0.179 off leader) at Brands Hatch. About on hour each this weekend. I'm leaving a bit on the table at Monza, although I'm done with it, but Brands Hatch was another hero run.
I made some quick runs at Bridge, .8 behind you. You lost me at the right hander that heads to GP start/finish. Not bad for minimal attempts. The grip on this car always amazes me. However, when you get too confident in the grip and really push you go for some BIG slides. I’ll try to carve out some time to make all the runs.
G’hamO, your weekly challenge idea is a hit! We’ll do an MP4-X event at some point, but waiting until after the LTS makes sense for that one. The concept of the weekly is getting buy-in with the good cheaper cars, so we can take that momentum up to the Apex cars at appropriate times.
