Need for Speed: ProStreet Discussion
I bought a Pagani Zonda F and it is so twitchy in speed races, I don't recommend buying it for that.
I also bought a Nissan Silvia S15 and a Toyota Corolla GTS AE86 for drift. The Nissan Silvia S15 is awesome, I was losing money drifting in my Infiniti G35 and now I can actually manage to win drift events!!! The Corolla is amazingly weak, even with all level 4 parts it's still a level 1 car except Aerodynamics!!! Level 4 Engine, Differential, and Induction upgrades hardly added 10 points to the power rating!!!
After spending $1.2 Million on that, I spent another couple hundred thousand on a Porsche 911 Turbo. It has amazing handling and aerodynamics but it's not very powerful compared to the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X. It's really good for tight technical tracks that don't need high speeds. For any tracks with long straights the EVO X is the best choice since the Porsche just gets overtaken.

As you can see, peak horsepower is at redline, which is what I think is holding it back.
My EVO X has the following stats:
HP: 889 bhp @ 8009 rpm
TORQUE: 602 ft-lbs @ 8013 rpm
POWER: High Level 3
HANDLING: High Level 3
AERO: Midway Level 4
Weight: 3016 lbs
Weight to Power Ratio: 1.54 lbs/hp
Redline: 8100 rpm
0-60 mph: 2.8 seconds
0-100 mph: 4.5 seconds
Top Speed: 232 mph
60-0 mph: 98 feet
Lateral Grip: 0.95 G
Well, I've never compared them like that but I'm actually surprised because the numbers suggest the two cars should be about equal. The EVO has way more power and is way lighter so that is probably why it feels faster around a track. Anyways, hope that helps.
If I change my Pagani Zonda from speed to grip do I lose all the parts I bought for it? If not, then I'll do that.
I changed my Pagani Zonda to a grip car. It's amazing!!!
Like Jeremy Clarkson once said about a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, "the worst thing about this car is the squishy organic bit behind the wheel (or controller in this case)". The Zonda reaches such insane speeds and unlike other cars, it keep that speed in the corners . . . if you're not to scared to try. This car is so fast that it surpasses my reaction times and when I start to brake for a turn, I'm always late.
