I think the estimated laptimes along with acceleration figures just clutter the car pages, Should only show the fastest times tested by publication. JMO.

Estimated laps are only shown in car pages with no real laps or very few real laps. So, technically, you can not "clutter" something by adding some value to otherwise empty page.
Only clutter situation I can think of is where there is full profile of estimated acceleration and braking times and you get one mile long list of numbers (like https://fastestlaps.com/models/ferrari-488-gtb or https://fastestlaps.com/models/porsche-919-hybrid-mk-ii) that probably should be better organised or semi-hidden / expandable.

Please make estimated acceleration numbers disappeare if there is a tested number! There are cars with TESTED numbers where people can't see it because the estimated numbers.
And delete ALL cars added by TurdGenCamaro!

Yes definitely. Used to not be a problem when I only generated estimates explicitly where no real times exist. But since maybe last year I added a lot of estimated and simulated stuff without paying attention to that and wasn't aware these estimates were "eating" real data in car pages.
Obviously it''s just a display issue, no data is lost.

We can all estimate laptimes and acceleration figures, I simply think its not needed, Even for cars without a laptime, just seems like a waste of data and extra effort.
I also think you should put the engine figures before any other data, you have bhp per ton before hp n all the other stuff.

New feature: estimated times for popular tracks and cars (see "Estimated time"). Super cool!
I will be fine-tuning the evil algorithms that generate those times over time (estimates you see now might change) and adding more very soon.
Sometimes, they are actually spooky close to reality, sometimes even more "real" than reality! It is hilarious.
