In terms of a straight up drag race, probably not, but in a regular race it depends on the skill of the drivers, I drive a Coquette now but in races people pick things like the 9F, Comet, Carbonizzare, Coquette, Rapid GT, Etc.. any sports car has a chance (although the Penumbra is some serious butt) try upgrading your car and what not.

Any person can beat any car with any other car... If that makes sense. Understand the car and use it's advantages over the other. Jumping from car to car jumps throws you off more.

sense* and yeah, agreeing with that.

 

Tho, my Elegy RH8 can easily keep up with the Carbonizzare. Just take the next turn better than your rival, and you take the lead. Simple.

 

I beat a guy (he had a pretty good ratio W/L with 191win-94lost races, so a pretty good driver), 1V1, Carbo VS RH8, on a race (can't tell the name since I'm not english so I don't have the english names), basically a "8" race in the city, not short race.

No catch up. 2 laps.

At the first turn I took the first place and never saw him again.

Final result, me in the RH8 2:24min, him in the Carbo 2:42.

Fella did say drag race tho. Not sure why you'd want a drag race but there you go. Fastest car wins.

Carbonizarre has some of the best overall stats in the Sports category. I think the Elegy can keep pace with it but only just and it's more of a driver thing at that point.

Driving a GT like I do in other cars. (understeers into a pole). It all depends on your own skill and how you are matched up to your car. The people you were racing against must not be that great. If someone in a Carbo had the same skill as you do, they will beat you.

so because YOU cant drive it well its impossible to beat a good driver in an Elegy/carbo? Bullsh*t i drive it Alot and have gotten very used to it and have driven against alot of decent racers and still win its all about the drivers preference and ability not weather or not the other drivers must've sucked. what's your gamer tag? if you have an xbox ill race you.

Sigh, have you not read my comment. I never said it was impossible, I just said that the driver and the car need to match up like you said. I said if you are used to your GT then you might as well drive it good. Jesus, read before you comment. And no I am on PS3.

Yes i read you're comment you basically said that someone who was decent in a Carbo would beat me in a race if i was using my GT. which i found a little offensive. I never meant to sound angry but it all comes down to how well the driver in particular can use HIS car in a street race. Drag races however all usually depend on acceleration and the length of the track which the GT usually beats the Carbo in my experiences

Why is no one saying the surano? That thing is the fastest sports car by a mile if you have to skills to control it! A surano is faster than the infernus in all out top speed. My mate beat me hands down infernus vs surano, super vs sports down the long costal road! I was amazed! I had him off the mark but he caught and beat me quick, was a pretty straight run too!

I've owned the rapid GT, it was a crap drive. Don't see what the fuss is about there.

There is no car in the game that can beat the Carbonizzare in a drag race. It will beat the Adder, Entity, Cheetah, you name it, the Carbonizzare will beat it. However, in an actual race, with turns, there are many cars that will beat the Carbonizzare.

In a drag race the Carbo and Rapid GT are probably pretty even. I tried the Rapid GT a few times and didn't like the handling, I had trouble hitting the corners in it. The Carbo is more enjoyable and fun to drive, but in fast corners the back end slides a bit, which costs speed and needs to be controlled. I have a Surano that looks nice but is untuned atm, will be interesting to see how that holds up vs the crew.

Yes they are even but when me and a friend tested the GT eventually started pulling ahead and confused us both as his has a higher top speed. The handling all comes down to the driver and how familiar he is with the car as I myself don't tend to have many problems hitting corners fast in a GT, I had more problems in the Elegy.

The two "quickest" cars in the game are the Voltic and the Rapid GT. In a drag race those two will win, depending on the length of the drag. That acceleration will only last so long though once the top end runs dry.

Driving all has to do with skill once you move away from Drag Racing.

I destroy Carbonizzares in my Comet, it is actually faster and handles alot better(in the right hands). And my fully upgrades Surano just wrecks everything.
