    I chop and change....(too much for my own good). The only cars I never really drive are the old Bentley and Nissan's and it would be nice to have more reason in the game to jump in the Porsche cup and Lambo super trofeo cars other than to hotlap….

    Different cars for sure. Each season from the league I'm in I pick different cars, different cars for endurance events, random cars when playing online, different cars for events. Could never play one car only, it's more fun to drive different cars.

    I would like to change the cars regularly, but unfortunately I do not have enough time. When I can drive, I prefer to take my now familiar Audi Evo and drive it.
     
  5. I want to drive the Beemer but I am so bad with that car. It is really stressful. So I just hop from car to car changing setups and just making it worse. From what I've read on forums I'm not the only one.

    I use only one car. I’ve drive SLS in original unmoded AC a lot and when I’ve jumped into ACC last year then I’ve chosen Mercedes again. Never tried other car than when I’ve tried my friends new steering wheel at his PC, but it was just for few laps.

    Personally I just like Mercedes brand and want to know how every bolt react in my car and then push the limits of the car.

    I often switch cars but I mostly stay with base aggressive and adjust my driving to each one.
    There is a slight bias to front engine cars because the fit my driving style but I also like the others.

    My favourite is the old V12 Aston because it's so raw.:p

    @sparkmastertape - try setup from suzuka 12h for the bmw, had problems with the big boy too, but with this setup it was much easier and more fun for me, maybe its worth a try for you

    I stick to the Ferrari for now, been trying the Aston in the beginning, pretty easy to drive but hard for me to be really competitive in it.
    I am used to the Ferrari now, might change later and stick to that car, but I feel it is better to stick to one car for a while.

    I chopped and changed a bit on single player - R8 for a the first season of the career, then AMG for the 2nd. Then I did a 2019 Sprint Championship in the Huracan.

    In the back of my mind was the fact that I'd driven the 911 GT3 R a lot in AC (note: not the RSR) and whilst I wasn't winning (online) races, I liked the car and had a certain affinity with it (that may have been helped by a drive of a 991.1 GT3 RS road car IRL :D). So I decided to stick with the 911 (2019 991 GT3 R), and get better with. I've currently got to the level of 'not terrible' :p

    Edit: sometimes it's a bit silly with the choosing of cars - for instance if you really want to win at Monza, you have to choose an AMG...
     
  11. I drive often the Porsche, but time to time I try others.
    I had lot of fun with the Reiter (2018) on Monza, very fast on straight.
    Ferrari is the moment car.

    Pretty much only the lexus because it's so stable, you almost can't make mistakes with it. :D Every time I try a non front engine car I feel too much oversteer and I can't be confident.

    I prefer to stick to one car and for ACC, when it lands on PS4, that will be the Bentley. First the 2015 one maybe when Bentley approuves I am good enough, they allow me the upgrade :oops:

    I'll only switch cars if I really need to (special events, hotlaps etc).

    I was about to ask about the Reiter. Tried it the other week and it just seemed to understeer so bad it was un drivable for me. I was wondering if that was why no one ever seems to use it. Did you find this when driving it?

    I feel the same with the Ferrari. Very easily goes into bad understeer for me and then just ploughs on without turning.

    For me the preferred cars are the front engined, AMG, Bentley are the favourites just now, although it takes adjustment jumping back into the Bentley and the RHD (even though I drive RHD irl!). I do like the Mclaren and Audi every now and again though for a change.

    I run my own custom championships of 30 minute races (including practice and quali) with 12 cars of the 2019 season across all 15 tracks, so that's 180 races. I've barely done 20 so far and 160 still to go (hopefully before the GT4's drop) so I race pretty much every car in every track....Did the same for the 2018 season. :D

    The REX was very alive before last physics update. Since the physics update it's just endless understeer and you have to increase rake a lot to get any rotation out of it. Increase the rear to around 80mm, leave the front as low as possible.
    I seriously think something might've broken the car with the update, the behavior went from one extreme to the other. First you had to tone down the car to make it less dangerous to drive, now it's so safe it feels dead.

    I tried an online race on the bmw at Spa earlier. It feels aweful and is slow.
    It can be smooth and assured but it's not at all competitive on that track anyway.

    Spa is actually one of the few tracks it's competitive on xD

    I started this game with Honda NSX in Career mode. Played 31%. Read about NSX that is one of the slowest car in game and... changed it for Nissan. Tried it on Monza online games. My PB 1:51 but usually 1:52. Driving nice but hated his slow corner exits (high torque at one moment, not linear, that was my feeling those days). Changed it to Lexus (when GTR made 1:51 I could get 1:49 those days with Lexus, at my start of ACC game actually) and I'm playing only Lexus since 5-6 months. Really like this car, linear power (N/A engine), great V8 sound (specially on downshifts during braking), feeling of this car is awesome (like Cirith Ungol said before - you cannot made mistake with this car), maybe not best car for hot laps but really competitive during race because of his permanence with lap times (for example I had many races when I meet guys in Ferrari, they were little bit faster than me but 50/50 chance that it gonna spin or make other mistake). I preffer understeery cars when I can change it to oversteer beasts, don't like other way - oversteer at base changing to more understeer.

    I don't have time to change and taste other cars, but generaly I love Japanese cars, so if not Lexus I would like back again to Nissan, try Honda maybe and Ferrari. I don't like German cars IRL
