The best Drift car is the 1995 Mazda RX-7 when it has medium horsepower but no Stage 4 performance parts. Only the tires, brakes, and the suspension should be Stage 4. If you want more power, simply add the other Stage 4 packages:
Tuning Set the suspension three clicks softer (remember to match the settings). Cam timing - Seven clicks to the right (advance) or two or three clicks to the left. Start/End Boost - Five clicks to the right or max it out. Nitrous Pressure/Flow Rate - In the middle or slight to the right. If you like speed drifting, max it out.
-The best grip car is the Porsche 911 Turbo with all stage 4 parts, with the front tires narrow for better handling in curves. This car will dominate in all grip races and can be used to defeat Ryo for the title without tuning. Use the best body kit and spoiler available and max them out.
-The best Grip cars are the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 or the Ford GT, both with all Stage 4 parts and the improvements needed to maximize the aerodynamics:
Tuning Leave the suspension or make it a bit more stiff. Cam timing - "Magic" seven clicks to the right (advance). Start/end boost - Max high/Max high. Nitrous Pressure/Flow Rate - About seven clicks to the right, depends on personal preference. Drivetrain - Make the first gear one click shorter than the second. Fourth, fifth and sixth gears should be one click more than the ones before them. Leave second and third gear as is. Leave Brakes
The most tempting choice in this category would be the Pagani Zonda. It is fast, but is very difficult to keep in a straight line. Instead, select the Porsche 911 turbo or the Dodge Viper.
Tuning Suspension: Increase the Caster to keep the car on a straight line. Make the steering response stiffer. Drivetrain - Keep the gears as they are or make them all some clicks taller. Cam timing - Seven clicks to the right (advance) or two or three clicks to the left. Start/End Boost - Five clicks to the right or max it out. Nitrous Pressure/Flow Rate - In the middle or slight to the right. If you like speed drifting, max it out.
The Nissan 240SX is the best dragster. The first chance you get, make a 240SX your drag choice and put on all the best performance parts you can afford. As much speed and traction is required. After starting, setting new track records you will be invited to race Karol Monroe the Drag King. This car will not perform in the Wheelie comp, as it does not have enough power to do so.
-Body Stratospeed Formula 7 Stage 1 (adjust the kit)
To defeat Ryo Watanabe, upgrade all cars with Level 4 performance parts and max out the aerodynamics. Note: Bring lots of Total Markers to Race Day
Grip Pagani Zonda. Use a "Free Car Marker" for this car if available. This car can also defeat the Grip King. Drag Ford Shelby GT500 or Chevrolet Chevelle SS. Do not do anything to the aerodynamics of the Chevelle. These cars can also defeat the Drag King.
Drift BMW Z4 M Coupe. Even though its stats are low, it is a great Drift car. You can use this car to defeat the Drift King. Alternately, use the Mazda RX-7 if you have won it from the Drift King. It already has all Level 4 performance parts; simply increase its aerodynamics. Speed Ford GT. You can also use this car to defeat the Speed King.
While you are in a Super Promotion Race Day, listen to announcer after a race to hear him say, "Will the owner of a blue car with the license plate 'NFSCARBN', please move your car". Note: The things the announcer says occurs at random, so it may take some time for him to say that.
usually you will get points deducted for destroying your vehicle when you participate in any career race. However, if you race in any one race and wreck your car, don't repair it. Any other race that you race with that car will no longer take points off for damage. This way, you can get the full 500 points toward dominating an event. This only works while in the same car previously damaged during an earlier event.
