Which muscle car isn't as prone to being spun out? I love my Gauntlet, but it is awfully susceptible to a spin out in a race

The Gauntlet is by far the most stable and easiest to drive Muscle car IMO...This really is a shame as it is the most boring to me.

The Phoenix spins out very easily, and when the back end lets go, it wants to go all the way around... I have no idea what Mantis is talking about.

The Phoenix is extremely fast. I didn't think it at first, but it is actually quite fast. The noise of the engine is great. The engine noises of the other muscle cars are basically all the same.

The Ruiner is also a good muscle. It probably has the best grip out of all of them.

But yeahh, the Ganutlet is, statistically, the best muscle car. It's a shame it doesn't look as good as a Sabre, or a Vigero. :/

Your gauntlet spins out??? You must be trying to spin out then because that car is stable as f*ck.

Gauntlet has the least amount of spin out and it's not really close. If ur spinning out in it, u probably need a bit more practice. All of the other muscles spin wildly IMO.

If your after handling avoid the Muscle class and get something like a Coquette or a Felon. I have the phoenix purely as it looks alright and is pretty rare, but if I need a decent handling car the Coquette goes for a run

Yeah because a Coquette or a Felon will do great in a muscle race.

I love my Phoenix but its loose in the rear end. Gauntlet to me seems to be the most stable of the muscle class. I like the Ruiner & Sabre best for muscle races.

I think the Vigero has the best sound. Buccaneer is too quiet.

 

OT: I may be biased, but it doesn't seem like the Vigero spins excessively either.

Ahhhhh yes. I forgot about the Vigero. It is a rather stable car as well.

If you're having trouble with the Gauntlet, then all the other Muscle cars aren't going to be any better.  It takes a lot of practice espeically getting use to the Sabre.

In my experience the Phoenix is pretty touchy, the back likes to get out a lot.

Gauntlet is the best muscle in the game. Handles the best and has the most speed. It doesn't look so great but for racing it's no. 1. Phoenix looks the good but handles terribly. Give and take.

I have a buccaneer on one character and to me it looks more like a muscle should, as well as the sabre turbo. I just love the look of the buc with the way the primary and secondary colors are fixated on it. Gauntlet on other character. Had a Phoenix, can't stand it. It's not rare to me either I see them spawn all the time around the docks or the lsc to the east.

I always thought the Gauntlet was fastest in class. Lately I have been racing the Sabre though and i have been doing well with it. To me it seems faster than the Gauntlet but spins very easy if not treated correctly. Gauntlet is IMO the easiest to tame. I have not raced all cars in the muscle but I find my Sabre rewarding to drive if driven correctly.

Another vote for Vigero. I love the Phoenix, but the Vigero is a better drive for sure.

gauntlet will have the best handling. I think the dominator is up there too. for racing you're stuck with either those two and the ruiner, I go with the ruiner because it looks great.
ed: I'd also like to add that the Phoenix is hands down one of the hardest cars in the game to drive. that thing goes crazy and I'm damn good at driving oversteering cars.

Dunno, I've gotten pretty good with the Phoenix. Sabre just bounces around too much for me.

Probably the loosest car in the class. The very opposite of what the OP is looking for.

OP if you have a Gauntlet now, just stick with it. She's plenty sticky.

no way the dominator is looser than the sabre or Phoenix.

I owned a fully-modded Dominator in the early months of GTAO for duping, and that thing fishtails badly. It's a good-looking car, but c'mon man.. it's the last car you'd want, given the circumstances of OP's demands. Lol

Musle car were never ment for handling so it really all about your own ablity to handle them phenix is great for drifting same as the dominator,vergio but the ruiner is best for drifting and straughts and the gauntlet buccaneer and sabre gt are more for straughts unless you know how to chuck them around corners
