    I have noticed that there has been a change to the top viewed cars. I was rank #4 for quite some time and today I see that I'm #1. I know this shouldn't be right because the number of views to my car is below 10,000 and the 3 cars above me were near or over 10,000. I did a little investigating and found that one of the cars dropped because the # of views dropped...significantly...The car in question is this one: http://www.mo...203/i/sleeper It was the car ranked just in front of me for views. Now it says it has 1879 views, which is not even close to being correct.

    Is this because of the recent update to the site? Are there provisions within the website programming that allow more than 10,000 views to be calculated. I'm just guessing here, but it seems that once you surpass 9,999 views, it drops the last digit off and reads 1,000 views instead of 10,001. Not sure if this is the case or not, but it's worth looking into. Everyone should get credit for what's actually taking place. A "reset" of the numbers shouldn't happen.

    Okay, now I know something is up...Just a minute ago (long enough for me to post the first one here) I was #1 on the list with over 9800 views...Now I've dropped to having only 1637 views... confused image What's up with that? Has someone hacking into the site and altering it or is this something that motortopia is doing to change things? Not sure what's going on, but the top viewed cars are dropping like flies. grumpy image

    If you are referring to the "What's Hot" box on the main page, this shows the vehicles with the most views within the last day. Therefore, these vehicles will fluctuate quite a bit. It does NOT base itself on the total views through the lifetime of the vehicle.

    If you want to see the all-time most viewed, click the "cars" tab and go down to the "Most Viewed Cars" box.
     

     

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Oh I see, the views went down. That is a bug, we'll get it fixed.
