My opinion, Champion is better than TQ, but putting them both together is best of all

Champion of course, TQ means you can be strapped out of your gord for 5 minutes. at a big race, champion means you can be fast for 60 which includes calculating tire wear/changes and knowing when your car is going to be good from having even tires and when it's going to suck because foam tires usually wear the left side harder, and then the rears harder.. so you get left with one tiny tire at the end.

Champion is what counts......

TQ is nice to have but it does not make you directly champion.

Hmm, if I TQ and loose the main.... TQ is the more important! If I qualify lower and win the main, then the championship is what counts!.

As funny as this question is to me, I used to race with a guy that would say the only thing he cared about was getting the fastest lap. He would say that anyone can win but only the fastest guy will get the fastest lap. I think he said this because he didn't win very often. Usually he would end up breaking the car. But I guess if he believed what he said, he would still be proud of himself.

I want to be champion. That ensures I was the best driver for the entire race. But I'd take a TQ in the mean time.

You can get lucky and win a long main but you really need to fight for TQ especially big events where there is atleast six qualifiers.... With all that being said, I will take the win....
