I've levelled up my mechanics in both of my groups in Grand Prix Story to level 5. I've levelled up the Dragster and it's follow-ons to get to the Mach car. Sadly, when I try to build one, my groups complain that "it won't be perfect" and, as predicted, it generally isn't. Currently, my groups make much better Aero cars. Their efforts at making Mach cars indicate stats that are usually lower than the expected levels by double digits.
Should I be selecting different mechanics? Or do I have the wrong drivers? Do I have to optimize my groups to this level in order to make a masterpiece car?
