Best Car in GT1

Discussion in 'Gran Turismo 1' started by Zero, Oct 7, 2001.

  1. i can't drive a FR car good. i spin out with high HP
    i am a god in a 4WD car. i beat everyone.
    nobody likes FF cars. They're kinda cool....
    MR cars are ok, if you like that.

    I used to have trouble with FR- and MR-type cars until I tried this little experiment - increasing the rear downforce and decreasing the front downforce. Though I'm still into 4WDs and FFs. They're easier to control. However, I don't know why I still customize them the way I did with my FR cars...
     
  3. I can compete with a FR car, but I can't crank the HP up like I can with the 4WD cars.

    The RX-7 LM has got to be one of the best cars alongside the GTO LM and Castrol Supra (In Black it looks sik)

    Good thing 'bout the RX-7 is that it has a VERY good chassis so it is ohhh so smooth around corners and is also damm fast.

    Lets just say all of the LM cars are the best, caus hell i cant decide which is the best!

    an by the way high horsepower and rear drive is hevenly, cant beat going round a track sideways!
     
  5. yeah, but drift is better for rally races, everybody's favorite non-GT1 feature

    driving while looking forwards thru the side windows.

    FR cars are good drifters... That's what I noticed in the arcade mode whenever I play drift...

    No, I'm serious... I was able to pull off the Gutter Drift in Clubman Stage R5 with the FC RX-7...
     
  11. fr cars drift good because they are the only cars designed smart. there's four wheels, so might as well use them all. ff cars only need the rear tires to stop sparks from igniting the tank.

    Fr cars have two tires to control drifting, and two tires to control speed.

    My favourite car in GT was by far a blue/white stock Viper GTS, with the 48,000cr tires mounted on them.

    But I was quite attached to my fine, and hard-tuned FTO and TVR Cerbera LM-edition, too!

    Indeed. :) See my username.

    In the right hands, it rivals a Concept Car LM for speed.

    you guys shold know that the best car is, unarguiably, the Skyline GT-R 33, no doubt about it. 1/4 mile, 8.345 seconds, 1000 kil, 14.534 seconds, top speed, 258 mph, with the right tuning this baby will decimate all... oh and if you dont like the handling at first, get use to it, cause the speed and acceleration make up for the o.k. handling, p.s. if you want a great handling car with o.k. speed, the FTO LM, and another car like the FTO LM would be the Impreza Rally Edition.

    The handling makes up for the better power-to-weight ratio of the GT-R'89?

    dude, i have mine set up for quick acceleration and good top speed, not super good high speed, if i wanted to, my 954 hp, (i think that's the hp, cant remember of the top of my head) skyline could get up to 270, cause that is my top speed record. :lol:
