When I was at this stage I went with the 908 but ... sorta regret it, would recommend the 787b its just a classic

 

Edit- pretty sure you're gonna need a turbo for it to win the ovals though

so some slight tuning is needed, thats fine as long as it doesn't ruin the beautiful mazda 787b sound

 

EDIT: do you think that these cars will be better than the RM'ed ZR-1 as i really don't want to buy a chevy

tbf the 908 would probably need a turbo as well, cant remember if I installed it when I was doing it, its basically because cars like the r92cp, minolta, r89c and sauber c9 have around or above 800hp

 

you can obviously take the turbo off once you're done with that to keep the car pure ;)

I went with the Peugeot, and frankly there is no race I cannot win with it, racing stock and no aids, I have no idea if the Mazda is any better, but honestly, it really does not matter, even if it is only on a par with the Peugeot, you cannot go wrong.

 

Using the 908 I won like the wind, all-stars, and dreamcar championship with ease, in the dreamcar championship I lapped everything twice on a couple of circuits. Also there is no need to buy any turbo upgrades, just adjust the gear box to increase your top speed, and on courses like the nordschleife you can even max your down force and still have more than enough speed to slay the rest of the field.

I have both, choosing between them is a tough call. I have the 787 Stealth Model which I find handles marginally better in the corners but is easier to spin in not careful. 787 I think has more torque in the low rev band and easily the best sounding engine in the game.

The 908 can top out a a higher speed and i find is slightly more forgiving in the corners if set up right, can be a bit slower of the mark, but soon makes up for it in the higher revs. 

Hard choice, but I think I would go for 908, purely for it being a good all rounder and also can be used in European Championship to grind for credits

A 787b fully tuned (as in, with a high range turbo) is around 880bhp and will increase with more use.

I have been tinkering with both on the Nurburgring 4hr endurance this evening. They are both awesome cars and perform extremely well but my personal preference is the 908 HDi. The car is sleek and beautiful and the cockpit view is really cool. I particularly like the flashing lights in different colours on the steering wheel, lol. I can't say why but I just get a better feel driving the 908 HDi. The 787B is far from objectionable. You will only really know which one you prefer from driving them both. Neither car is a bad choice.

I was thinking the exact same thing. :smileyvery-happy:

 

Miko2097, you have reached your daily limit for jokes about the Fiat 500.
