do AI cars sustain damage when I level up?

8 replies 15 views Edited Dec 12, 2010

I haven't leveled up far enough to see any damage, I think i'm at 12 or 13.  Anyways, the AI cars are really starting to get frustrating.  Today one of them brake-checked me AFTER the corner on the straight.... guess which car went in the rhubarb?  I got mad and T-boned the first AI I could.... as hard as I could....  didn't affect it much.  It would be nice if physics affected the AI cars a little more accurately.

If you want to hurt them now just wait until Extreme level!

 

I think the AI is immune to damage. I just try to stay away from the suckers because I don't want them to make my car slower by damaging it.

I rammed an AI car from behind at 250kmph. I lost control and went spinning off into a barricade. It didn't even budge. I swear they are stuck on preditermed paths and nothing you do affects them. They act as if I'm not even on the track. The stupidest AI I have ever seen in a racing game in a long time.

I can confirm that they do. I was racing the Like the Wing series and one of the AI opponents got bumped in the rear during a clump session in one of the corners causing his rear wing to get mangled. He couldn't stay out of the dirt afterwards.

See how they love to pit maneuver you? Try doing that to them, they have such great recovery powers they'll only slide a few feet and then be back on their line. The only way to throw them off is to force them off the track.

I managed to bend the rear wing on the 787 Mazda one race by accident.

I know the AI takes damage.  But I think it takes damage at the level of the race your in.  So you could be taking damage at level 40 while the AI is only taking damage at level 17.
