    Nope. That GTO '92 is not a turbo, and goes to only 381hp. Awkward under-powered beast.

    The cheapest you can get a GTO twinturbo for is Cr14040 for a Passion Red GTO'92 Twin Turbo on days 100-109 (700-709, 1300-1309, etc).

    The GTO'95 MR is also a twin turbo (arguably the best), but it bottoms out at Cr27090 (Passion Red on days 520-529).

    (This is for North American v1.1)

    Don't worry. You can't.

    There is a GTO, but it is not a turbo, and won't take a turbo mod, so it gets up to only 381hp.

    The GTO is good... A little too big though... But effective...

    The Honda Civic '93 hatchback is a great car to start out with...
     
  14. hondas are good starters.

    The '93 Civic hatchback is light and fast even with low HP... No wonder it's the most recommended Class C car in arcade mode...

    Oh, so your first car was the Hachi-Roku, huh? That's great. I used to like that car a lot. Until the Evo III came along.

    I like the Arcade Mode FC... It's easy to drift in that thing, though I frequently perform Gutter Drifts with the Eclipse... :)

    You were mistaken, Project-X... That wasn't a Hachi-Roku... It was a Hachi-Go...

    The Civic '93 Sedan (not the 3 door Si sounds like an intriguing starter car. Too bad it's not available for under Cr10,000 until day 220.

    Similarly, but less extremely, the Nissan Pulsar '91 GTiI-R appears for under Cr10,000 several times, but not until day 170.

    The '92 GTO is another great starter. A 4WD under 10000 credits? Just needs a new paint job

    Hmm.

    Yes, it's too bad that none of the Roadsters ever avaliable for under Cr10,000 are the 128bhp sort.:banghead:

    I don't like roadsters... They're only equipped with SOHC engines like the Hachi-Go

    I go the AE86 Sprinter Apex GT as my first car. Came along pretty well, I still use it in some races. Great car.

    Right now the only upgrade I bought for my GTO '92 is the racing modification
     
  30. just the racing mod??? NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! this is your new motto, takumi: BUY WEIGHT REDUCTION BEFORE RACING MODIFY!!! you make the car a hell of a lot lighter by using weight reduction first, and you can't buy weight reduction after racing modifying the car.
