West Coast Classic at Steel City this Fri, Sat & Sun. Stop by and take a look at what people are running & ask some questions. See what you want to run after that.

20 years ago there probably was a single solitary "good" car to drive. Today there are multiple brands of cars and it really gotten down to what color you want the aluminum bits on your car to be. Some are black...some orange...some red..some blue...some gunmetal and all of them are GOOD cars. So pick a color that offers good local support and work on driving and setup cause that's where the winners and losers are separated.

... well, not the HB R8, stay away from it... there is a reason not many drive it (in Europe or anywhere) - lack of spares.

Yet as stated see whats supported in your area! We havr a guy driving the Infinity here, but he is not a team driver, and as such has to wait for spares! Whereas there are more Mugen and Serpent drivers here because the shop carries those spares needed.

Serpent has a nice following at Steel City as well as Mugen-Couldn't go wrong with either car. IMHO, pick the Serpent. The other cars do just fine; it's just a matter of support on any given day.
