American Muscle or something more exotic??

Postby Tsarg on 05 Nov 2007, 18:53

I wonder what most people will be riding in the Drag circuits.

I for one will be riding a mean Camaro SS, so i guess you could consider me an american muscle driver, but i know many of you out there are probably planning to take some more exotic vehicles (or even Japanese) to the track.

I chose the SS for its look, its performance and for being one of the first real american muscle cars to face the mustang in real drag races.

Post your favourite ride for Drag here and tell us why you chose it.


Cheers!!! :)

I would LOVE to race my 67 Camaro SS against the 67 Mustang Shelby although im sure the GT wil lmake a great oponent too. That would be a race worth watching. Hope to catch ya in game bro. Lets make Drag racing earn the hearts of people by showing them what it's all about.

Hope to hear from some other Draggers about their rides!!!

I like the chevelle, nice power and with just some more addons it makes a huge drag car.

Im very excited about the possibilities that NFSPS will bring to the drag scene. Since the second i saw the trailer of that hemi against the mazda i almost broke my jaw.

The way this thread is going i believe that most of the people will avoid the american muscle and focus more on japanese cars.

Lets see how that turns out in the tracks :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Hmmm...... i dont know if i would classify the Viper into the american muscle category, i had the impression that the viper was more of a sports car rather than muscle. However it will be very interesting to see how a viper fares in a drag track. Lots of HP and im sure those babies will fly like an eagle. They will need a good driver too of course :P

Indeed it is man. Chevelle is a great car and a legendary muscle. Im just glad they were added to this game as well as their villain the mustang :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Im sure we will be seing many Camaro SS vs Mustang and Chevelle SS vs Mustang battles in the drag circuits.

Nomally I prefer exotics over muscle cars, but drag racing is something different.
Remembering one of the last scenes of the Fast and the Furious, the drag race between the black muscle car and the supra, i'd definetly go for the muscle car.
Seeing that car making a wheelie is just amazing! Can't wait to try that ingame.
Although the wheelies i've seen in movies from an RX-7 for example looked kinda fake :/

I am crossing my fingers for EA to add a wheelie bar, cause even though the wheelies will be something amazing, i think in time it will just become something annoying.

Hope to see ya at the track mate.

I know that muscle cars are the best in drag race mode...but first i will try a powerfull japanese car (think that a rx7 or a eclipse with 2000hp if it's possibile :lol: )
If this is not working in front of you Tsarg i will try the Camaro. Camaro looks sexy,and it is a true muscle car...but remember that "rɘact" is coming from Japan...

Hey dont get me wrong Im not a very big fan of japanese cars, but that doesnt mean that im not up for people using them in drag races. Im sure a good tuned japanese car could make a hell of a drag oponent and im up for any challenges.

First i will have to see if i can dominate the controls for the drag racing and then practice and practice and practices even more to be the best i can.

I would definently have to go with a Ford any day. I'm am loyal to Ford (last name is Ford 8) ) but when it comes to American muscle, as long as it's a big block bored out to hell, I'll drive it :mrgreen:

03 Mustang GT FTW!

Well ill be getting my game the first week of december so we will not be very distant in the way of getting the game. I still have a little hope that it might arrive a bit earlier but that just depends on two factors:

1) The shipping company
2) pure raw luck

I hope those two factors combine to give me a huge satisfaction before december arrives, cause on december 17th im leaving on holidays for a month, which means no PC until January 14th or so.


Cheers!!! :P

Hmm, if possible i'd love to try an make a 500hp Lotus Elise, if that doesn't work out, (which it probably wont), then i'll try some JDM's like rx-7 or skyline, then muscle cars would be my last choice, probably a Camaro. But if i could get 500hp into an Elise, well, that might even be too much power for it since it's so light lol, i dunno that'd just be a sick car if it worked.

I would use the '55 Chevy Bel Air since is not in the game i will use 1967 Chevrolet Corvette C2 (Sting Ray). I'm not a fan of a american muscle (i was =D) but this Corvette is very nice and i think the aerodynamics are better then on the other american muscle car (Camaro SS,Chevelle SS...) and i will not use an euro or a japnese car to drag. The drag was born in america and no other cars are better for drag than american muscle cars.

Wheelies are very annoying at 962hp / fully tuned Charger R/T I can do the all 1/4 drag with a wheelie, its when I can't turn its annoying, since there is so much torque behind my charger that it twist hitting 4 gear.
