Updated.

Added the "Open Wheel" class to the list, made some small changes to Sports, Super & SUV classes and corrected the wording here and there.

@Protocawl, I removed my post as being the first post and altered the title to remove PS4, since we are a mutli platform site I figure XB1 and PC are probably the same (if anyone on those platforms disagree feel free to say so).

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it.

Some new info added to SUVs.

@ProtocawlExemplar doesnt have the highest top speed does it? I am not sure, but I think Zion takes the win on that as well... 

Maybe add the hustler for offroad muscle tracks? 😂

Exemplar doesn't have the highest top speed in the Coupes class, but it does have higher than the Zion and Felon, just about, and that's what was written by me here, but since it's not really a very good alternative to the aforementioned Coupes, I removed it altogether now.

Hustler for any modded snow jobs, you mean? :classic_tongue:

Well, with an offroad TRaction Loss of 0, it should be king amongst the muscles on any offroad/rally track, I would reckon...

It certainly can be, but it's still a serious challenge to drive on non-modded off-road surfaces. I've used it several times in off-road races over the years and can remember that it's just about the fastest on uneven surfaces, but very easy to lose control of it and fall behind again. Can't remember actually winning any of those races with it due to that.

Benefactor Krieger     [joint best in class, price: $2,875,000 from LMS]

Progen Emerus     [joint best in class, price: $2,750,000 from LMS]

Are they so close/similar that the choice is just a matter of aesthetics?

Emerus is RWD, tends to spin out when pushed too hard, kinda like Turismo R. Quicker of the two.

Krieger I think is AWD, so more controllable, but more understeer and slower potential lap times.

Thanks, but I know I'll definitely buy the Emerus as the fastest of the two. Then test it out and if it's too uncontrollable I'll buy the Krieger. One for hotlapping, the other for racing others. Much like the GTO and Pariah. Learned last night that I might be able to control the GTO when grinding the same track, but I'm definitely not good enough to control it outside of that.😅

Sounds like a good plan. I love my Emerus, after driving and going to the Krieger it the understeer of the Krieger is a pain. 

I used to tend towards the krieger, nowadays I tend towards the emerus. 
I used to tend towards the GTO, nowadays I go the opposite towards the Pariah (still not comfortable in it though). 
 

It is a matter of adapting towards one or the other, but the emerus is more enjoyable than the Krieger, IMO.

Shotaro will be 70% off and Deveste Eight 60% off as part of Black Friday deals (27th-30th), if anyone doesn't have them, as they are both best at something in their classes.
