Almost, it's a little off. Most of the top cars have remained unchanged for a long time though. Check out Broughy1322's videos for a full rundown of the best cars.

 

Super : 1. T20 - 2. Osiris - 3. Zentorno (Except for airport races where Entity dominates because of lack of bumps)

Sports : 1. Elegy RH8 - 2. Jester Racecar - 3. Feltzer (Easiest to drive is Feltzer, also the V12 has a similar airport race advantage)

Sports Classics : 1. Stirling GT - 2. Z-Type - 3. Pigalle (Stirling dominates)

Muscle : 1. Dominator - 2. Blackfin - 3. Blade

Coupes : 1. Zion - 2. Felon - 3. Exemplar

Sedans : 1. Schafter V12 Armored - 2. Schafter - 3. Schafter LWB Armored (Armored V12 dominates)

Compacts : 1. Panto - 2. Rhapsody - 3. Blista

SUVs : 1. Huntley S - 2. Baller LE - 3. Baller LE Armored

Vans : 1. Gang Burrito - 2. Bison - 3. Youga (Gang Burrito dominates)

Off-Road : 1. Bifta - 2. Dune Buggy - 3. Brawler (Brawler is 1st when the race actually is offroad though, or contains a fair bit of straights, Sanchez beats all but is a bike and doesnt really count as its in the wrong class)

Motorcycles : 1. Bati 801 - 2. Hakuchou - 3. Akuma

 

 

Yeah this is pretty accurate, don't rule out the Massacro (RC) though... I also wouldn't say the Panto is the quickest compact, it's pretty much the same as the Rhapsody, only harder to drive. (But then again... I know your love for the Panto) ;)

Like those who bet on themselves and then play dirty because they can no longer afford to lose?

Bitches the lot of them.

Bikes: Bati 801 + Hakuchou

 

Basically the Bati 801 is the winner 99/100 races, but if there's almost no turns and extremely long the Hakuchou's slightly better top speed will win out. The Akuma is good if you're not good at wheelies, as an aside.

 

Supers: T20, Osiris, Zentorno, Turismo R + Banshee 900R

 

Whatever suits your driving style or budget between the first four. I prefer the Osiris personally. The Banshee 900R slams any race where it's much higher top speed can put it out in front.

 

Sports: Elegy, Jester (RC), Massacro (RC) + Schafter V12/Rapid GT

 

I personally dislike the Elegy, I think it spins out too easily, lacks top speed, and understeers badly on PC. I like both the Jester and Massacro Racecars. Schafter V12 can beat the Massacro for top speed. NOTE: If you can run 120-144fps (PCMR) the Rapid GT magically becomes faster than the Schafter V12 in a straight line. This has nothing to with slamming the car, but you will want it with the lowest suspension.

 

Sports Classics: Stirling GT + Z-Type

 

Stirling GT crushes the class on anything with some turns and need for traction/acceleration. Z-Type wins any race where there's enough straightaway for it's vastly higher top speed to overcome the Stirling's advantages literally everywhere else in terms of performance.

 

Muscle: ? (Dominator, Blade, Slamvan?, Sabre Turbo??)

 

This one is under some contention, inherently because the muscle cars are fairly hard to drive by comparison to other classes. But with the Slamvan Custom and it's suspension+hydraulics glitch giving it a top speed potential of 138mph, and the soon to be released Sabre Turbo Custom; it's hard to say.

 

Coupes: Zion + Windsor

 

There just is no comparison, albeit all slight advantages to the other front runners. The Zion is just the standout in the class. The Windsor will win in any race with significant straightaways due to the best top speed in class.

 

Sedans: Schafter V12 (Armored)

 

This thing beats everything in Sedans at everything, end of discussion.

 

Compacts: Rhapsody + Blista/Issi

 

As much as some may like the Panto, it's oversteering is horrid and it just flat loses to the Rhapsody. The Blista and Issi are tied for highest top speed in Compacts.

 

SUV: Huntley S + Baller LE

 

Huntley is the general winner, Baller LE top speed.

 

Vans: Gang Burrito

 

It wins, nuff said.

 

Off-road: Sanchez (if you want to win, otherwise idc)

 

Sanchez beats any off road vehicle in tract time and top speed.

 

Utility: Sadler

 

Just in case you ever get into a utility race.

The regular Massacro is really good as well. I suck at racing but last night when I finally got in a couple of clean races I managed to win in my regular Massacro beating an Elegy and Jester and came in second losing by just a couple of seconds after crashing twice.

My best time on CC remain with the standard Massacro. Its different than the racecar but no slower. I cant stand the Elegy and have never been able to drive faster than a massacro in it. I have all those cars but will 99% of the time use one of the Massacro's.

The only difference between the two is the RC Massacro has just a smidge more traction. They are the same for acceleration, turning circle, and top speed.

Supers: Vagner and X80 are the best all-rounders in speed and handling, Nero Custom and 811 still are the top speed kings(811 still requires careful handling), Tempesta and Osiris are the best, handling-wise. T20 still is competitive.

Sports: Schafter V12 for top speed(90% of stunt tracks), Elegy Retro for handling, Elegy RH8 and 7-70 for balance between speed and handling.

Muscle: no big changes here, Pisswasser Dominator and Sabre Turbo Custom for top speed, Redwood Gauntlet and Blade for handling(they understeer a lot).

Compacts: Brioso R/A is overpowered, it beats the whole class in terms of handling and speed, I heard the Blista has an higher top speed but I'm not sure, the rest is Meh.

Sedans: Same deal since 2015, Schafter V12 armored is overpowered, it beats all the other cars in all areas.

SUVS: Benefactor XLS seems to be the fastest here in all areas, but I don't know, I haven't raced a SUV race wince 2015.

Motorcycles: Shootaro is the best all-rounders without being too overpowered, Hakuchou Drag has the highest top speed but turns Horribly, Bati 801RR is still the best handling bike, Akuma is an alternative for who doesn't like to wheelie.

Off-road: no news here, BF400 out classes everything else, but removing the bikes, the Trophy Truck seems to be the fastest 4-wheeled off-road.

Not sure where you have all your information from but this is not all correct if I remember correctly

X80 has a higher top speed than Nero Custom according to Broughy

Bati 801 has a higher top speed than Hakuchou drag, regular Hakuchou even has a higher top speed
Shotaro is also the best handling bike, kind of the reason it's the fastest around broughys test track.

Contender is fastest is SUVS

I'm basing this on broughys test videos because that's the only testing we have, everything else is kind of personal opinions and not proven in the same way.
Doesn't mean one should follow everything he says blindly either because people's driving style and personal preferences can be different from his

I don't factor wheeling into testing with motorbikes because it's not quite a stable way to ride them, if you lean with the hakuchou drag, it will smoke the Bati.

Though, if you can consistently wheelie with the Bati and win races with it, props for you.

I though the Contender was an off-road and not a SUV, I will have to check it out.

And I screwed up with the supercars, the Banshee 900R has the highest top speed in the game, followed by the 811, Nero Custom has the 4th highest top speed.

Though, I still recommend the Nero Custom to high speed tracks because of how balanced and easy it is to drive it.

The 811 has a faster top speed than the Banshee since it was patched, the banshee was fastest for a while but not now (but neither of these cars are that useful in 99% of races). The Nero is good but the Vagnor since they patched/rebuffed the down force is kind of OP but harder to drive.

The Contender is easily the most dominant SUV nothing comes close in the class.

If you do not factor wheeling into racing on bikes then yeah the shotaro or hak drag are a better option but it is easy to keep the wheel up on a Bati 70 - 80% of the time I am personally much much faster on the Bati for stunt tracks and other high speed tracks.

On tracks like broughys I get slightly better times on the shotaro/hak drag because I can not utilise the wheelie as often.

Truth is some cars perform on different tracks and conditions better than others for example in the sports class I use a selection of cars,

Elegy unbeatable for tracks like Broughy's, (The Jester RC is a easier to drive alternative)

Seven 70 2nd fastest Top speed in the sport's class but it will go round a corner very well, it is good for High speed tracks and some stunt tracks.

The Omnis or Tropis both are not that good on the road but off road they are the undisputed kings, if there is a track with off road sections it is worth trying like the stunt track "rally" they are unbeatable.

There also some great all rounders in this class like the Massacro's and Feltser.
