In my experience the quality of the racing can be independent of the speed of the cars. It all depends on the quality of the people racing. I've had plenty of crash fests in MINI's and I've had totally clean racing in GTP. Of course I've experienced the opposite too. The end results from crashes in fast cars (especially F3000) can be far more final though.
In the end though, I've learned to avoid Public Server Racing.
I think the racing is closer , and more fun in ''slower '' cars. I've had a few very good GTclub and GT sport races lately. Crashes will happen in GTclub too , but i think the racing is a bit closer than GTpro's or Extreme's.
From my experience the Public server Racing in Minis is great at the front! seems to stay close and as these cars are easy to handle it tends to provide close racing! i have had some great races in minis!
same thing here Matthew. slower cars are much easier to handle for non-aliens. but if you drive faster cars the alien people will have their advantage against the non-alien people I've had great races in minis, but also a couple of good F3000 races on the public servers. but no doubt, slower cars are much more funny. throw a Golf MK1 mod on the server and you'll see the boxes bump into each other
Yeh, I have more close races in minis. That being said though, lately I've had some real good races in all classes! Was driving the radicals earlier, and for the 1st two laps, I was 3rd, within 2 seconds of the leader the whole time. Not had such a close race in fast cars before. Also had some very good races in WTCC cars, seems the racing is getting a lot cleaner now.
Yeh, when I started off I used to be very aggresive at the wheel which seemed to suit the open wheelers more and I did better in them but as I got better I got worst at open wheelers and faster in minis and wtcc cars. Stayed at that level for about a month (this was my 2nd month in sim racing) and then started joining a few RaceDepartment races. Realised I was good with Minis and signed up to the RDMCC.
Over the last 4 weeks I've improved hugely and can now drive all cars (apart from that damn BMW WTCC!) well and I'm still improving fast.
