Best Car

#1Raven_SkydriverPosted 11/24/2009 2:02:30 AM
What's the overall best car in this game ?
Tier 4 cars seems to be monster,but I found that a tier 3work converted Chevy Corvette beats the stats of most if not all tier 4 cars,because that car has almost every stats maxed out when work converted..
Anyone found another Pawnzoriser car like Corvette ?

I think the "Best" depends heavily on your driving style and personal preference.
For example, I've tested out 3-4 cars in each tier to see with suits me best, and I do best in the following cars from each tier:
Tier 1 - ... Dunno, I only bought a couple cars and sold them later on; The 350Z was the better of the 2.
Tier 2 - Ford Mustang GT500, Fully upgraded with or without Works.
Tier 3 - Tie between the Ford GT (Maxed) and Lamborghini Murcielago (NO works, at least not until the Dec. 1st patch).
Tier 4 - Porsche Carrera GT

Those are my personal favorites. I've tried the various other cars, an none really suited me.
Tier 2: I tried the Camaro, Challenger, Elise, and Cayman.
The GT500 still claimed rank for the best overall in handling, top speed/acceleration and weight (So you can hit back when the computers decide to be asses). The Works package kind effed up the gear ratios for me, though.

Tier 3: Tried: Murciélago, Gallardo, Viper, Z06, Exige, and Ford GT.
The FGT won for me in cornering, traction (The Viper an Z06 liked to spin the wheels), and really just the overall "control" of the car. It stays on the road, doesn't spin it's tires when you floor the gas, and can hold it's own on the track.

Tier 4: Tried: Veyron, CCX, Zonda R, SLR McLaren, Reventón, and Carrera GT.
For me, all but the Lambo and Porsche were OVERpowered, and I had severe difficulty just keeping it on the track. The Lambo was decent, but it was kind of a pain to drive for me. The Carrera won my vote for being more balanced, in keeping a better Power:Control ratio; It actually feels more like a Tier 3 car to me. And hey, you can't beat the signature whine of it's turbine engines. :P

1. Audi TT, nothing comes close.
2. Elise for all except the tightest tracks.
3. Works Z06 as of now, but my guess is Murcielago post-patch.
4. Zonda R.

I just put the Works package on my Z06, and after some tuning I don't think anything will be better for me personally. I have come to realize it's not the car but how accustom the driver is to the behaviour of the car, that matters most.

That is the main point, EXACTLY. The actual stats of the car are completely meaningless if the driver isn't familiar with, and/or can't control the car they choose.

It's how I feel about the FGT versus all the other Tier-3 cars. I've used the Ford GT is pretty much every racing game I've come across that had the car, and have grown very attached to driving it. Not to say I don't handle fine with other cars, but I notice a big difference in driving my preferred car over another.

And on the note of being familiar with how cars drive. Does anyone else get extremely thrown-off when driving a right-driver vehicle, after growing accustom to the majority of vehicles being left-driver? (Assuming you use the cockpit view exclusively). Seems every time I chose a "flipped" car, it takes some time for me to adapt and be able to drive the car effectively...

So, new patch, Murcielago LP640 shows its true colors. Nothing can touch this car in a straight line. Nothing. Hits mid 190s on Spa, almost 10 MPH quicker than the Zonda R. Handling is not quite there though.

The Zonda R is the fastest car overall, especially with zero downforce on the high speed tracks. Before the patch, the Z06 allowed downforce settings up to 60, and I used 44 front 50 rear for short tracks like Alpental and Tokyo Circuit. Patch 1.02 limits this to 25 now, so the Z06 isn't as fast on the tight tracks as it used to be. Even with the fix, the Lambo Murc doesn't seem as fast at the Zonda R, so I may use it as a high downforce, short track car, as an alternative to the works Z06.

I don't doubt that whatsoever, I'm merely saying acceleration-wise, the LP640 tops the charts. Albeit, I can see it being quicker "overall" on the longer tracks than the Z06 now.
