Making a second character that i'll use strictly for racing - 1 car of each class. So im curious to see what everyones list of 'best' vehicles in each class are and why - a discussion of vehicles of sorts!.... i cant decide on Sedan and SUV :\
Super: Entity XF - not as fast as the Adder, but has better traction and braking, making it a better 'race' car
Sports: Carbonizzare - 2nd highest top speed in the game, all around good stats but rear can slide if being careless. The Elegy is amazing in the terms of handling, but that can be a bad thing on some corners, not getting enough wheel spin to make the tighter corners
Muscle: Gauntlet - best handling in the class with good acceleration. not the fastest but the handling makes up for it in most races.
Motorcycle: Akuma - slightly more maneuverability than the 801 with a bit more acceleration, but a little lacking in top speed category.
Off-Road: Bifta - The acceleration and top speed on this thing make up for its light weight and tail happy performance. Only other 2 options would be the Dune Buggy or the Sanchez
Sports Classic: Z-Type - Higher top speed and more weight without sacrificing maneuverability or acceleration, has the slide nod over the Monroe which tends to slide through some corners
Compact: Blista - Almost the same as the Issi but with added weight making it easier to correct if driving mistake is made.
Coupe: Felon - Most would same Exemplar here but i feel the Felon has a bit more traction again with more weight making it easier to correct.
Sedan: Tailgater? - Really torn in this class. Tailgater has really good traction and braking, but the acceleration and top speed are a little low. The super Diamond takes corners too wide, Other options are the Fugitive and Schafter but i havent experimented a lot with them.
SUV - Radius? - The Baller 2 has much better acceleration being AWD but the turn radius is way too wide to make it worth anything for racing. The Dubsta is also a nice option, but the radius seems to be more responsive.
I think the reason im so torn on the sedan and suv classes are because theyre so slow, you cant really notice much of a difference in speed. what car do you guys see as the best in each class and why?
