    So I just got this game and had 18000 credits and I bought the Toyota Vitz first (don't know why) and has served me well so far. So what is the best car to get in the beginning? Which has the best acceleration?

    I won the miata in the second beginner race but it wouldn't let me use the miata in the FF race. What did you use for that race?

    Get a Lancer as soon as possible. This car can carry you a very, very long way.

    Yes the Lancer is a dope ride I must say. Nissan Skyline GTR is better. That is really the only car you need once you get it. I built mine up to over 1000hp. Sweet ride for the price. But Also the second car I got was a civic. After a few mods, the car was good to me. But unmodded the car sucks.

    I hear the Toyota AE86 Trueno is a good car to start off wtih... My friend who's a HUGE initial D fan maxed out his Trueno and raced it with the prototype cars and stuff

    Miata here. I think the Vitz allows for more money due to the Vitz-only circuit, but who wants to be seen driving a Vitz? [​IMG]
