I've been racing in MP league as soon as it came out, bought Sagaris and messed with the tuning a bit, then got stuck until the MP4/8 Championship came out. I got the car at 8-0-10-0, tuned up the Tires little by little, till I got to full tuning, then I put two more into Exhaust, where I began taking down quite a lot of Camaros and Hommages. I thought I was just getting lucky until I managed to take down around 30 Camaros when I knew this couldn't be a coincedence or luck. They all were ranked higher than my MP4/8, yet I seemed to have no trouble against them, especially on Azure Coast, Sector 8, and Dubai. I think this is the new MP king, but many people I've been seeing around seem to think this is unfair. But honestly the Hommage R&D was apparently pretty easy, and the Camaro goes on discount a lot and only costs 6,250 tokens at that. But these same complainers are the ones who wanted Camaro and Hommage dethroned. What's your opinion?
Camaro can quickly catch up with MP4/8 except in twisty tracks where Camaro loses much speed and may be defeated even by non-mp cars. Even the MP4-25 can't keep up with camaro and Hommage. This is in single lap races, and in 2 laps race no car can stand with Camaro or Hommage.
Hommage R&D isn't easy you can't win an mp-tuned one without spending a lot of tokens or buying the car itself.
In addition to all of this, the MP4/8 is really good in MP with an impressive acceleration and handling but I don't think that it can lead its owner to champion league.
And with all the new cars released, the mid bracket and the higher bracket are getting more competitive now.
As long as you can keep a short or twisty track for the MP4/8 you are very likely to win. but as the previous poster said, 2 or more laps and you will never beat a decent camero or bmw player. Sadly there are many MP4/8 drivers that choose long tracks and or multiple laps where the car cannot hope to compete with the class kings.
