    Despite being an out-of-date car, the FC RX-7 is cool. No wonder Takahashi Ryosuke sticks with it. And it's as good as an FD RX-7.

    After I recently won the Hard-Tuned Series with the FC RX-7 efini III without much difficulty, I began to wonder whether takumi64, when I write Normal Series, understands it to mean what we in North America mean by Tuned Series. takumi64 does play the Japanese version of the game, I believe.

    The Tuned Series is after all, a series for cars which are normal in that they have not been race-modified.

    I think I have heard Europeans refer to the Normal Car Cup as the Stock Car Series, but you couldn't call it that in a version distributed in the USA without causing confusion since what is called Stock Car Racing in the USA involves cars which are highly non-stock.

    Indeed, the FC RX-7s as modeled in [size=+1]GT1[/size] are much nicer in handling than the FD RX-7s in the same game--in all of unmodified, tuned and race-mod form, but especially in tuned form unless you are careful/skillful/lucky.

    Mhm did it with the concept car before, as well as farming the hell out of the prize money with a Viper GTS. Would be fun seeing the worst car you could win it with, concept car is lowest in power, but perhaps another is worse in power to weight ratio? Mind you you'd have to decide if wallriding/ai bashing was legal.
