I'm driving the RX-7 RS right now, almost half tuned now and run 3:21 on akina. I can give the FC a try and see how it runs. BUT they may have a different driving style, i'll give a try and let u know wat i think. I currently only have the rx-7rs car and was thinking of having the fc along with a possible ae86 to complete the garage.

Bu-dong, mind sharing your TA with us so I can see if i'm making good progress or not.

So far, the fastest timing I ever seen in Singapore for Akina Downhill dry is 3:17.xxx

But youtube, I've seen a AE86 having 3:09.xxx

tried the FC today, its really good. On a stock FC i did 3:24 on Akina and 3:xx on Akagi. Just over 2secs slower than my half tuned RX7 RS and just under 2 secs on Akagi. So far, the fastest time at my arcade is 3:20 but saw someone with 3:17 near full tuned.

Jerry, can you please stop asking for the differences for the time being? we'll get back to you once we find out, don't pester so much.

no offence dude, i mean good. just that it's getting a little annoying.

if we do forget, remind us later.

i'll offer my observations from driving those 2 cars recently.

the efini is top car for akagi uh. the rs doesn't accelerate as much as the efini on akagi uh. on the rest of the maps, the rs seems to be more balanced than the efini in terms of stability and accel.

@ fuzz:

timing? didnt really run much ta yet.. haha... i dun even noe am i making good progress... haha.. but as for now i've seen a few 3'1x on akina dh in sg.. seems pretty fast.. well, if u wan to know a fast timing in akina dh, i would say RS4 probably have the fastest timing in sg as of now ? 3'11 for him.

iro average timing i guess would be ard the range of 3'15 to 3'16?


anyway if u ask me abt the fc and fd (both type)... i would say the fd certainly have more potential den the fc from the way i see how others are playing.

as i say b4, the 2 fds i dun think makes much difference.but apparently, the type R seems to be the faster car for akagi uh. laugh.gif

I think FC is a bit more of a challenge to handle compared to the FDs .. It's not as stable, but still, it turns quite well. Other then that .. Most probably the FDs will win. I'm not sure though, mine isn't full - tuned ..

Sorry, it's just I've asked before and no one has done it.

i will go with FD efini. because it has a akagi UH homeground advantage.
unless you don't really play akagi, from the IR TA, the RS is overall a bit better than the efini.

ive said it a million times in the past.

if you think the car will make you even 0.01% better your really pathetically mistaken.

no matter what you choose it wont affect your times and it wont affect how you drive be it a fr 4wd ff mr or bicycle.

stop asking what the best version of this car or the best car in the game is.

quite simply the best car in the game is the driver.

like someone mentioned... FT and Stock is like Chocolate and Shit... who knows what type of chocolate the shit will turn into.

heck.. unless you are reaching within 3s of #1 World Rankings you wont see any visible difference no matter which one you drive.

just go with whichever have the looks that make your heart throb

or like Rei.G says... go check the IR for your answers...

or send us your bank account and we will happily do an FT vs FT comparison for you. (Don't do this. Never. Ever)

It's one thing to be a good driver, it's another to have a good car, too. I will admit, I am not exactly what you would call "pro", but I am not exactly a "noob", either. If you had a choice between two of the same cars with different performances, wouldn't you want the better one? Like, if you had a choice between an EVO IX and EVO IX MR, you'd rather take the MR, wouldn't you?

And can someone show me the IR? I just checked the website and can't find it. (Sorry, I can't read Japanese and I tried hovering my cursor over to the links to see what it is in English and can't find it)

Eh, I'll wait for Fuzz to come back so he can tell us the comparison.

Hi Jerry,

http://sega-initiald.net/inid5/p/ranking/rnk_ta_car.html

The above link is IR by car type. You can select the course and view the car type different timings...

for eg, Akina dry down for FD3S as of this post is 3'09"918 vs FD3S6 / 3'09"818...

depends what your definition of a good car is.

if you think a car that runs 100 splits faster than another car means its 'better' then go choose that better car.

and about that evo 9 question, id never drive an evo 9, if u reworded that question and said would u rather choose and evo 9 or an evo 3 id have happily said evo 3 =).

sucks waiting for double dollars here or thursdays so i can go in and play initial d half price, other than that i dont wanna use money fulltuning my car paying at full price thats ghey.

well... think of it the other way.. it saves $$$$$ since you only play once a week rolleyes.gif

imagine if everyday was Double Dollars... you'll be tempted to go everyday.. anytime of the day...

(darn.. my foot itches)


----------------------------
@Jerry

in the case of FD... they are so close in performance that i will take whichever have a bodykit that tickles my senses...

IX and IX MR isn't an analogy of RS and Spirit.
The VII and IX is a better comparison. Both are CT9As with varying internals.

oh yea... instead of the IX i took the VII (currently weaker of the 2 based on IR)
just becos i love it so

we have everyday double dollars on february and november.

besides from that every 1st wednesday of the month is double dollars... so ill top up like $200 on my card ($400, 200 ID games) and u can play that through out the month.

but thursdays its a 1 day only half price thing, so u top up like $20 and HAVE to spend it on that day, if u dont then it'll just turn into normal credit the next day.

therefore i have to wait for every thursday to play until the 1st wednesday of may, which i will top up over 300 and fulltune tongue.gif.

Thank you. I have made up my mind and decided to replace my Efini with the RS.
