    Question Does every car win at Radiator Springs?

    We've ridden a few times now (and sometimes in separate cars through the single rider queue) and always "won" the race. Is the ride designed so that it always appears that your car wins from inside the vehicles or are we just extremely good at racing preprogrammed, automatically-controlled slot cars?

    No. I've been in a car that clearly came in second. I got a comment that said something like "everyone's a winner," but it was clearly a consolation comment.

    Re: Does every car win at Radiator Springs?

    I've won most of the time but I have gotten second place for time to time. If you do place second, Doc tells you a line like "great race, better luck next time" or something like that, and the ride photo is just a generic RSR logo as opposed to the champion's logo.

    Every race has a clear winner, and whoever is first going into the tunnel stays in front through the finish...up until then it doesn't matter who is leading

    Re: Does every car win at Radiator Springs?

    In my experience, the car on the right side of the track is the winner. I have ridden both sides of the track and the only time I lost was when I was in the car on the left side when I went through the tire shop. All the other times I won and was on the right side and went through the paint shop.

    You were just lucky, we've ridden it twice on the right side and only one once.

    I've ridden both sides of the track multiple times. I have yet to win a race. I'm cursed, or something.

    Given that the track is straight at the finish line, there's no way to make it look like both won from inside the vehicle. There will clearly be one in front, and one behind.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    I do believe you are mistaken. I believe that an early lead = finishing loss.

    Re: Does every car win at Radiator Springs?

    I haven't kept track, but I know that I've lost a lot more then I've won. If I had to guess I'd say my record is something like 2 - 10. Luck of the draw I guess, just like how I seem to get the same scenes over and over again on Star Tours.

    Given that everyone else here has a winning record (myself included), someone somewhere has to be coming in second all the time. Sorry, but it appears that's you! haha

    That funny. We kept winning with tires and never with paint, so thought definitely when you get tires you win! We got a little too confident each time we went through the tire shop - and then we ended up losing! After that it seemed to vary, sometimes tires won, sometimes paint. I don't know if there is any pattern or percentage, but would guess it's pretty random.

    Re: Does every car win at Radiator Springs?

    Okay no lie, I was at the parks yesterday and because I got there early, I was able to do RSR a whopping five times (thank you single rider and FastPass!)

    4/5 times, the car was green.
    4/5 times I went through Ramone's shop.
    5/5 times I won.

    Much like Star Tours, this ride is so random that sometimes it isn't.
