Worst

Car(s) - Super GT .... the slightest turn and you drift, a tap op the handbrake and you do a 180 sneaky2.gif
Bike(s) - Freeway .... some people will disagree but for me its too lazy

Best

Car(s) - Taxi .... colgate.gif Easy to control and has the best handbrake in the game

Agree with the worst ones. But the best ones would have to be the Bloodring Ranger and the NRG. Maybe the Faggio.

The Broadway (the prostitue car, I'm pretty sure that's its name) has the turning radius of a drunk elephant. Which isn't good. Half the time I crash the car trying to get a hooker to her man on time.

Anyone else here hate the Savanna? I find it corners like a footballer in his own mum's high heels. It swings round at the twitch of a handbrake and I end up twatting a poor old lady with the back end of my freshly modified car.

Worst

Savanna - is too light and has very poor steering. Wants to go straigh and not turn unless you go off the throttle.





Best

There's so many. I pick the police car. Quite fast, very well balanced.

Definitely. The brakes are crap, it understeers, wants to go straight all the time. even the handbrake doesn't do a good job.

Best handling has to be the Greenwood. It's slow, doesn't understeer or oversteer, and at insane speeds you can get good drifts. Stopping distance is predictable - makes for those perfect stops.

I agree that the Super GT needs to die.

The best would have to be just the regular sedans like the Premier, Primo, Sentinel, Cadrona etc.

Banshee, Glendale, and Bullet. Worst.

The Taxi is pretty good indeed. Aside from that, I'd say the street racers. Flash especially.

Cabbie with nitrous = awesome handling.

I hate the Blade, I can't stop spinning out at speed.

I normally go for bikes. My favourite vehicle is actually the BMX. Max skill gets you max bunny hops, and it's awesome for bombing round residential areas, hopping over walls and fences.

Yep both the blade and savanna are pretty bad as well

I actually find the banshee and bullet some of the best handling street racers, and a fully modded flash at wangs autos cannot be beaten, great handling

I also think the cheetah has near the worst handling. It seems to spin quite easily, if you take it fast and go hard around the corners, since it is quick.

Not to disrespect you, but that reflects your driving skills.

When you improve your skills, you'll find the faster and better cars to be superior handling. The Greenwood is not such a car. Only quality cars handles very well at high speeds.

Edit:
Do not mistake "easy to handle" for "good handling".

I like the Tourismo & the Buffalo best for their speed & handling.
I dislike the Super GT because of it's touchy handling; you gotta let off on the accelerator as you turn & I keep forgetting that.

I like the NRG-500 & FCR-900 bikes best for their speed & handling; the FCR-900 also for it's sound. I guess I like the Freeway least for it's slower accaleration compared to the faster bikes.

The Greenwood and the descriptor "insane speeds" should never, ever be utilized together.

Its acceleration is abhorrent at best, and how do you achieve these "insane speeds"?

But, I digress. I mean, we are talking about handling, so I guess a slow vehicle (like the Greenwood) purports a sense of decent handling.

Did I mention I hate that vehicle?

lol, gravity can make a Greenwood go insanely fast.

Again, "easy to handle" and "well handling" isn't the same.

Just because the Super GT corners very fast and it slides doesn't make it 'bad'. It just takes some time to learn to use it.

I've been using the Super GT for a long time, and it sucked at first, but now I drive it better than a Taxi or a Police Car.

Super GT, Turismo, etc., they are the cars that drive well if you spend time learning. They don't have steep learning curves.

Savannah, really does suck. It either has a near-impossible learning curve or is the crappiest car in the world.

Worst bike: Faggio. Annoying engine sound and weird handling

Best car: The Cop car for it's all around balance

Best bike: Good old PCJ-600 inlove.gif

Many prefer other bikes than the NRG. Why?

The PCJ handles good, but the NRG is much better IMO.
The PCJ is the third fastest bike, and the second best handling. The FCR is second fastest, but you can't brake hard and steer it at the same time.

smile.gif I know this topic is now pretty much dead, but what about the Elegy?!
It sounds cool, has acceleration and is fast.
Once you get the hang of it, it's the most fun you'll have driving in this game!

Yeah...but Elegy is too slow for me.I'd definitively go with the Infernus as the most easy to handle car.Worst car is the Super GT.And the Manana in SA is easy to handle too:p
Personally,i only drift with Infernus.

]INFERNUS FOR PRESIDENT!!!!
