    We will save you from Mission 34 (or Purgatory as it's known in the PAL region) Parnelli!

    And Joe - I CHALLENGE YOU TO A DRIFTOFF!! FTW!! etc. THIS WILL PROOVE WHO IS MOST MANLY!!!

    ...God, this is descending into homosexual posturing :lol: It's like Arnold Schwarzanegger and Bruce Willis getting together to discuss their six-packs (or these days, six-packs of beer)

    Aah, good stuff :)

    Ahhhh Mission 34, bit of advice.......make sure the Merc is RR, so you are a man and you can drift!!!! GRRR!!!

    Challenge accepted Falcon, be prepared to be uncovered as a woman! :dopey: Oh god, I see what you mean about the homosexual connotations.....:scared:

    Also, on-topic, so we don't get screwed at, I find FF doesn't work with my driving style.....Let's just hope this isn't the BEST drivetrain! :sly:

    ...and on that bombshell, I'm off to bed before this descends into a fit of baby oil and tyre smoke! Parnelli, good luck with mission 34, and Joe........(inadequate pause)....yes, I agree, FF doesn't work for me either ;)

    Gdnight! :)

    In GT2 i go with the AWD over the others, but in GT3 and 4 i go with RWD.

    Also notice i said AWD and not 4WD, 4WD is totally different.

    Yup. 4-wheel drive is full-time 100% (like in some trucks) whereas AWD drives all 4 wheels but can lessen or even switch off part of the drivetrain if the need arises (for fuel-efficiecny, traction, cornering prowess...whatever).

    Welcome back, senor breakpoint.

    Okay...

    I myself liked FR; it allows for good performance and balance while maintaining the mystique of temperament, unlike 4WD or FF. But, by that logic, I should have voted for RR.

    Don't know,so i choose all drivetrain.
    FF is recommended for newbies because easy to control,
    FR is for professional drivers who like speed,
    4WD is stable & mostly for rally,
    MR is nice combination of good handling & massive speed(that's why most of LM race car use this drivetrain),
    while RR have reputation of it's big speed and big oversteer(except for fiat 500R & suby 360).
    Whoever who made this poll,maybe that person didn't try all of the drivetrain & enjoy the fun from each characteristic.

    That's very possible. It seems like many racers from this era (2002-ish) weren't very hardcore like we are. Nothing wrong with this, it's just cool that nowadays things have changed.

    FR would've been my first choice. But, recently, I started using a 683bhp Mine's R33, and it's perfection in my eyes. That Attessa AWD system really is magic, I haven't even worked on the settings yet. All I did was put a huge Turbo kit on it and startde racing.

    EDIT: This thread was still about half-way down the first page. Is this a bump?

    Even a Stage 1 kit is fairly large on an R33. I liked it too; it seems to drive lighter than either the R32 or R34.

    Out of all the Mine's cars, I like the Evo V best. It's just so tossable around corners and it has amazing acceleration out of corners. I think they switched it to FR :lol:. I agree with the R33 being the best out of the Mine's Skylines though, sweet looking car with performance to boot:tup:.

    I think MR is the best, but that's just me. They drive around turns VERY well and are usually the fastest cars in the game.
