    I have driven the nascar and Nissan gtr and both feel terrible.

    What are the best cars to drive to make me believe in PC2?

    GT3. Give the Ferrari, Mercedes and Audi a go.

    Panoz Esperante
    Ferrari 333 (careful changing gears down to 2/1)
    Ferrari 288 GTO
    BMW M1
    LMP2/3
    Ferrari F12tdf
    Ferrari F40 (GTO)
    Ferrari 330
    Porsche 924
    Nissan Fairlady
    Ferrari 365
    Ford Escort RS1600 Racing
    McLaren 570s
    Ferrari La Ferrari
    Ferrari FXX
    Caterham 620R
    Radical Sr3
    Renault Clio cup
    Ginetta Gt3/4
    Formula Rookie
    Indycar road
    Renault Alpine

    Trick is also to match them to decent feel tracks such as:
    Oulton Park, Bannochbrae, Donnington Park, Brands Hatch, Cadwell Park, Fuji, Algarve, Watkins Glen, Long Beach, Nordschleife, Red Bull Ring, Snetterton, Daytone Road, COTA, Bathurst, Sakitto

    Edit: Make sure you have the right tyres for the conditions
    ie softs 30-35 celcius track temps or lower / or you can keep the tyre temps not higher than 90c ish (ideally more around 70-80c
    hards for hotter.... dont attempt hards if they cant get well above 80c - if they sit at much below 80c the feel is pretty horrid...

    Have a read on: http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?57541 and aim for the target pressures.

    LMP2, IndyCar, Formula Renault, GTE cars, the classic Porsche 911. There are several good cars. Bedides the tyre pressures, bear in mind that the car setup fundamentally changes the feel of the car. I Like my LMP2s to have a bit more front downforce and maybe stiffen up rear suspension a bit to remove understeer.

    Wow, this is kind of the definition of inconsistent quality content in a racing sim! You have to match car and track!!! But thanks for the tips nevertheless.

    You dont have to match car and track. These are just my recommendations (that came to mind without going full on trawling through the game) on what feels the best.

    There are plenty of other tracks that are fine.

    These are the ones that really make the experience top rate (to me). You can also select probably 90% of the other cars and they will do fine. Some will even prefer cars / tracks that I dont. Ie I really dont like the feel of Imola or Spa in PC2 whilst others love it.

    I wonder how many people are confused/put off by the default setup being the loose setup. Its a nice idea to provide more than one default setup but simracers are used to safe understeery default setups. If you don't like the way the cars drive on the default loose setup, then try loading the stable setup. And if its a road car the OEM setup is often the best.

    For me, one of the best is the Ferrari 488 GT.
    Drives really good and looks fantastic. This still does have the most realistic graphics in my opinion.

    ACC is close though with the graphics, and I'd say the Ferrari in that game feels and sounds even better.

    Actually I don't think so. I like ACC but it does not look as good.

    The text in the message implies it could be a comparison of ACC vs PC 2.

    Screen shots are poor indications of what in-game, in-motion visuals look like anyway. And unless you post an uncompressed video somewhere, clips are not much better.

    So, the thread is about which PC 2 cars are best to drive...from a physics/FFB perspective. Neither ACC nor screenshots are on topic.

    Yes I know hence my favourite car in Pcars 2 and it looks and goes better than the one in ACC. IMHO.:thumbsup: And I didn't realise you were the forum policeman on who decides if it is on topic or not.
