    BEST STARTING CAR FOR GT6

    What are your experiences?
    Which car seems to be the best car to start a new career as a race driver in GT6?

    Or maybe more interesting: Which is the second car in your garage due to the fact... Honda Fit... :lol:

    You can post you first line-up as well if you have made some progress already.

    Also interesting: Which car matches best for which event?


    ------------

    Summary:

    Best starting car: Honda Fit seems to be a good starter among others...

    After that I'd suggest the Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ/Scion FRS. But that's just me.

    It's quite fitting that the Honda Fit is most fit for your first car.

    I'm going to start the career with the KTM X-BOW R (to get through the opening events quickly and start making serious money) that is included in my preorder. Sure it seems unfair and yes it is very unfair but, I really just want to drive what is possibly my favourite track car ever.

    Oh yeah I know. It should be eligible since the early events of gt5 were mostly limitless except for drivetrain and country, but with 25 bonus cars I'm sure that I will be able to find something.

    Of coarse he would, especially if we start with one of the 5billion Nissans that we will get in GT6. ;)

    I would say the Honda Fit. It is the best car to use *cough cough* and the only choice you get.

    After finishing the Sunday Cup with the Honda Fit (which wasn't a bad car at all) I bought a Mazda Atenza Sport 25Z. It's a really nice car and pretty good competition for the AI (or should I say rabbit ;)), at least for me. It can last you for a while too if you keep tuning/upgrading it.

    Best starter car might be different for everyone though, I think the Atenza is great and you might think it's rubbish so.. :p Just buy a car you like.

    Haha ya. I for one would hate to start with one of those too much Understeeriness (Is that even a word, I have only ever heard FailRace say understeeriness) for me.

    With version 1.01 after you are forced to purchased a Honda Fit, you can purchase a different car right away with your 13000 credits left (+5000 if you decide to sell the Fit) without the need to do first a race with the Honda.

    At least their generous - 400PP Clubman Cup, PP limit is 500. :lol:

    EDIT: It's 430PP for Sunday Cup, and 450 for subsequent Novice events. Sorry.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that all-around champ, the car most of us really wanted for the first car, the Honda Fit. :tup:
