    In previous games I'd found the 1993 Toyota Supra (turbo) a very good starter. Also a 1991 Nissan Silvia K's 2000cc. And once a 1990 Mazda RX-7 Infini III.

    I'm thinking of starting another game of GT2. This time I think I'll redo my licenses and everything.

    And, now, knowing the Initial-D connection, I might try using a 1983 AE86 Trueno as a starter. It won't see me through very much of the game, but it will seem culturally relevant, or something.

    But I might not get around to this. I seem to have so much less spare time these days, even without playing many games. I'm not sure why.

    You might be pleasantly surprised. The Trueno/Corolla series in the 2nd game can accept more power than it did in GT1, so you actually can go further in this car. Problem is, there's 599 other cars to distract you...i'll admit it's not easy just sticking to one machine, even for a night of racing!

    A Celica GT-Four sounds like an obvious choice, yes.

    I did test driving last night (licenses only), and got B&A quickly enough, but I'm not good enough to gold the entire B license in a single session, so I won't be starting with the Spoon S2000. I'll organize my memory cards in the next couple of days, and I should be off and running next weekend. I will probably go with an 80's Trueno, for its cultural value.

    Wacko choices include looking at new cars. I spotted the Toyota Vitz and Fiat 500R. The 1984 Celica might make a nice starter, but it's a relatively rare car, and doesn't appear until day 70. You could buy it via trade, of course.

    I'm sure that, over the years, there have been several online races for GT2 starter cars (best you can do with Cr10,000). I wonder what the results of those were?

    I think the Spoon S2000 is over-rated. It's basically a great car to cheat with in early stages of the game, but a regular S2000 is actually better.

    1. The regular S2000 accepts more power upgrades.

    2. The Spoon S2000 has some incredibly high spring rates (12.0-ish and 10-ish kg/mm) which makes it tricky to drive at bumpy tracks like Grindelwäld and Trail Mountain.

    Go with the Trueno if you want that "rags to riches" feel (yeah my car is a POS, but look what it can do!) The '84 Supra is also a great car...i actually forgot about it till you just mentioned it. Are you sure it doesn't show up till day 70?

    Pretty sure. I did extensive research on that. My notes say it appears at day 70, then stays around until day 99, (actually a different colour for the last ten days), and then disappears again until day 130.

    24 appearances in 60 line-ups.

    First post here :)

    I actually just started playing GT2 about a week ago on my PSP :sly: having completed GT3 and most of GT4 on PS2. My first car was the '92 Mirage Cyborg. The main reason I chose it is because I own the older model (1990) 4WD Cyborg in real life.

    Its actually a pretty good car on the game, probably one of my favourite cars actually (dont laugh lol), although it only has 229hp, its lightweight and when well set up can be a killer in the corners, and I can easily clean up alot of the 345hp+ rated races in it. I prefer driving it to my 600hp+ GTR :)

    Hey i'm not laughing! I've driven the Mirage Cyborg before...it's an alternative to the Civic. I've got a replay of me kicking some TVR tail in the GT nationals...:dopey:

    I didn't realize this is the GT2 Forum. My first car in GT2 was the Nissan Silvia IIRC.

    My first car on the GT2 was the mirage ciborg.
    But I was a noob back then, now I would choose the AE86 due to is drifting capabilities.

    I forget what mine really was. I was absolutely obsessed with online FAQs at that time, so I probably just did the license tests first. But I don't know what I did after that, other than, one time, I sold a cobra not knowing its performance capabilities, and I started the game over completely. I started out with some red used Toyota Celica. That's what I do know.

    My first car was a black Nissan Silvia S13 K's 2000cc 1991. I love this car because the engine have great sound.
    I began the game more than 5 years ago.
