    What’s your favourite Gr.3 racer and why ?

    Haven’t tried them all yet but I enjoyed the NSX and 650S

    Currently a tie between the RSR and M6 GT3. Love the RSR (big Porsche fan), but the M6 has a bit of an animalistic nature that makes the N'ring absolutely exhilarating.

    Porsche seems to be the car to have for Maggiore, though I have tried my best to challenge with my Jag!!

    I love my RSR, also a fan of the 458. That being said, the AMG GT is my favorite, based on aesthetics.

    I like the Jag too. I don't know how it stacks up against all the others, but I've done okay with it and its sexy as hell.

    M6 GT3 is a beast.

    And... try the Beetle. You’ll be surprised. :sly:

    An M5 would be an awesome car to own in real life, but no way I would take it over a Porsche 911 GT2 RS.

    RSR for me, particularly when tuning is allowed and you can get rid of the stupid amount of rear toe and LSD decel.

    I think I would have to go with the RSR personally.

    Ignoring your actual comments ;) Basing things off your avatar - I would LOVE to have the Bentley in GT Sport.

    Sorry for the thread derail! lol

    I think the one I enjoyed putting a livery on the most was the Atenz.... Oh you mean to drive. Yeah, I should really start driving them as well now.

    So far the R8 LMS. It's very responsive and has a nice cockpit with really visual rev lights. I like to play with minimal HUD so this is important to me.

    I also like the Ferrari, but that car is what you would call "an untamed beast". You really need to put some time and effort into controlling it well. Especially in low speed corners.

    I think the 458 Italia GT3 is an absolute rocket, but the handling's a bit dicey to say the least. Speaking of which, I need to find a tune for the 458 that increases its stability.

    The Beetle is Gr.3's best kept secret, but I found it understeer a little too much for my taste. I prefer cars more prone to oversteer.

    The BMW Z4 is my hipster GT3 racer. Nobody ever talks about it, but I enjoy driving it a lot.

    It depends on the track. I find the stock Beetle to be very stable overall but the 911, Genesis, GT-R and M6 seem to be the best when you can set them up yourself

    I didn't test them all though. The Z4 also looks fast and the Citroen. But I didn't drive them that much yet.

    I only drive stock with no tune, but I like the M6 however it's not the best at putting power down out of corners in stock form. The Viper has lots of potential and if you put lots of effort in it you will be rewarded with a good lap time. It's not the best at cornering I've noticed. Will try the Z4 and eventually will try the Ferrari or RSR. The RSR gave me lots of trouble in AC so I wonder how it drives in this game....

    The beetle has actually as well the best overall ranking (combination of all stock values of acceleration, speed, cornering etc) of all Gr.3 cars with 5.5 being the only one with such high rating. The other top cars in the category have 5.3 or less.

    Just drove the Z4, incredible car, puts power down really well. And is faster on the straights than I expected, has great braking performance too.

    IMO it really should be up to your driving style, but the 911 is the popular choice now.

    I'm really growing on the Reanult RS01.

    That boat of an m6 was my fave on tcs 2 , but 1.06 made it a hot mess.

    458 Italia GT3 and the SRT Viper GT3 R.

    Enough said. I also downloaded awesome liveries for the cars like the iconic oreca livery.

    Esso ultron livery of a super gt supra looks so sexy on a 458 italia gt3 it makes me drool.

    I like the Porsche, but it takes a bit of finesse to get the most out of it. I've been driving it more lately to try to get to know its limits better, because it's really good and fun to drive.
    The Beetle is the easiest Gr.3 car to drive.
    The Atenza is very good. This might be my overall choice for Gr.3 just because I'm very comfortable with it.
    I also like the Citroen GT.
    Viper is very stable and fast.
    The Aston Martin is really good too.
    I have a hard time driving the Ferrari. Too much finesse required for that one, for me at least, but those who can get the most out of it put in some stupid fast laps.

    EDIT, I forgot about the Audi R8. That car is great. If I didn't hate the Gr.4 TT so much, I would consider signing with Audi for the mfg series.

    Complete opinion reversal, but I hate the Beetle. It's overused and annoying. It's overpowered and takes no skill either. Choice of professional divebombers everywhere too.

    I used to swear by the Lexus rcf, but I signed for bmw for this week's manufacturer series and I'm absolutely loving the Z4, fast as fook, very stable under braking and accelerating. All round great car.
