Uber Black worth it ?

I drive uber x in Sydney,
Thinking if upgrading to Uber Black.
Does anyone know what sort of hourly rate can be expected to be achieved after uber takes its cut...?
I am mostly referring to the peak times when at its busiest.

If you do it with a hire car company who take 50% of the earnings then definitely not worth it. But if you are the owner operator then yes. Certainly less jobs but fares are triple uber x. You probably may make over $50 per hour in busy times.
Not sure if Uber have changed the requirements with having to have a HC plate or not though.

Thanks for the feedback, i have already investigated number plate and a higher car plate scenarios and have been told that there are no numberplate requirements just regular registration.
I make about $35 an hour for my car in the busy period as an Uber x driver.
So triple would be $105 an hour & not $50.
Though $50 would suffice.
Are speaking from personal experience at $50 an hour...?

Who as a rider would want to order an Uber Black without HC plates? They can't use bus lanes.
