I’ve stumbled across a weird glitch where my car jumps in cost by about 40% for no apparent reason if I change a cam profile by 1 click.
Body: 2003 MR 2.3m wheelbase
Configuration: mid-engine AWD (seems to happen regardless of the layout)
Engine: doesn’t seem to matter but I’m using various versions of the 6 cylinder layouts as they’re what fit best
Here is a nice sporty modern 2.7L i6 with minimal tech slider spam.
It goes in a mid-engined, AWD short wheelbase car, kind of like a not-unreasonably priced dream team of stuff on paper that would never ever make it to production in real life a shame, really
Now I change the cam profile by one click and boom, the demographic scores suddenly take a huge hit!
Why? The costs! What gives!? I didn’t change anything else at all! But, as you can see, the service costs jump massively as do the material costs of the car (but not the engine).
Also here is the car file: Model 6 - Trim 14.car (22.0 KB)
EDIT: It appears to be a power thing. When the power of the car exceeds 384hp, something else clicks. I’ve checked the transmission settings and all kinds of combinations of tunes and that’s the magic number for this car. 384hp or less, the costs are cheap. 385hp or more, and suddenly it’s astronomically expensive.
EDIT 2: and now I closed and restarted the game, the file doesn’t do it anymore, weirdly enough. Was something else glitching or another component changing without my knowing? The stats don’t seem to change enough for that to happen, so maybe it’s more the order in which the calculations and multipliers are parsed?
