Before I bust a moderator's blood pressure by making them think this is a 'what car do you have' thread, this is not one of them. I'm asking you, why you chose the car that you have. It can be your first car, the one on the card you just bought, your third one, whatever. Were you looking for acceleration, top speed, grip, drift, versatility, looks, jumping on the bandwagon with everyone else (*cough* DC2 *cough*) or just because your favourite Initial D character drives it? Whatever reason, post it here!

I chose the Mazda RX-7 Type R because I was looking for a car that is well balanced; something that has a good chance in battling on any course. And of course, something that didn't look like an oversized brick with wheels. Well, since I didn't know much on Initial D (or cars in general), I asked the players at the Funtime Arcade I go to, and they advised me (most of them) to get the RX-7. So far, this car has performed beyond my expectations (I still suck on battles without boost though), and I even chose it for version 3. So yeah, I was looking for a half-decent looking car that was well-balanced.

i first chose my Evo 7 because i wanted a car that would tie me to any characters in the series.
then i chose the Evo 4. mainly to see the difference tbetween the evo 4 and 7.
then i chose the Impreza WRX Sti Ver. 6. because it was the car i wanted in real life.
then i chose the Fd Spirit. to see how good the car was. because i did a Time attack with it on akagi. and it blew me away. so those are my cars............oh and i got me a sileighty. because i helped a n00b out. and he had WAY too many cards

ver. 1:
AP1 - chose this car because it is my favourite car! but it was on auto...
FD3S - chose this as my first manual and keisuke drove it

ver. 2:
AP1 - transferred hoping it will change to manual til i found out that i needed more games to play...
FD3S - transferred and is now my main car
FC3S - chose this because it was uncommon and ryosuke drove it
DC2 - chose this for fun and is now unused

ver. 3:
RX8 [SE3P]: chose this because of my collection of the rotary engine

I chose the R32 because its my favorite car in the series.
I love skylines.
and I also chose the 85 because it was underpowered and i could learn a lot from it.
Now my 85 has battle level 10 grin2.gif

I got the 86 as my first car because I liked the way it looked, plus I hoped that it was as good in the game, as it was when Takumi drove it. I bought the sorry ass R-34 and mostly all the other cars I have because I liked the look after the option customization was finished. Mostly all of my cars I got for looks, and I wanted to push the cars to see what times I could get with them. But my 86, is my pride and joy!

No shit? Does the steering wheel really shake with the levin 86 like Wataru's wobble in the series? I'd never heard of that. I might just get one now grin2.gif

I chose to drive an FD in ver.2 because I was getting fed up with my GT-4, and I wanted something that actually stood a chance in battles. Didn't get a DC2 because I didn't (and still don't) want the best car in the game.

That, and the FD is sexy. happy.gif

Ver.1 DC2
Ver.2 DC2
Ver.3 DC2

I just choose the car because I have a Integra in real life and just wanted to have a Type R. But I guess the GS-R powerplant will have to suit my needs till I get a Type R engine swap. whistling.gif

SXE10, because no-one uses it at my arcades, it so under-rated and such a good car, and i didnt wanna follow everyone else with a DC2 or a FD.

Now i am proud of driving the altezza, it ffunny wen i take on Dc2's, FD's and R34's and they think me and my altezza suck on iro and stuff, and i always smash them laugh.gif

I only play ver.2,
- GC8V, because when I was new to ID, a friend of mine gave me the code for this car and I thought it should be the best car considering this is a hidden car.
- DC2, after realizing that GC8V is not a godcar and most everybody were using DC2 in my arcade, I got my DC2 aswell
- FC3S, kinda bored w/ DC2, I chose my 3rd car which was FC3S just because I like the look of this car. Even though I only use it for fun in LOTS and for a 'bait'.
