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?

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.

..., bear in mind that the car setup fundamentally changes the feel of the car. .
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.

What are these three pics representing? Is there supposed to be a noticeable difference between the first two? Is the third one supposed to be the same car?

?!?!
The quality of Pcars 2 graphics. What else?!?!? :thumbsup: Why do you ask?

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.
