Following are the statistics for the two cars from TC Basic.


Honda NSX

Top Speed: 165 mph
0-60: 5 seconds
Brake Distance: 98 foot



Ford GT40

Top Speed: 205 mph
0-60: 3.7 seconds
Brake Distance: 98 foot

The ford has the advantage in Top Speed and Acceleration. They are the same in Braking. Why is it that the Honda dominates in the short tracks over the Ford?

Thanks in advance!

I guess the handling is the big difference.

Any other thoughts are appreciated.

My theory is that it's the speed/acceleration. If you are going super fast, it'd be hard to turn while slower speeds allow you to turn better.

Just a theory. I'm not sure if the game mechanics work like as if they were in real life

Top speed is less useful on tracks with short straights, there's not enough road to accelerate before hitting the brakes for the next corner. Also, said above, due to poorer handling the Ford has to show down more at corners than the Honda.

That said, where do TC Basic get their data for 0-60 and top speed? Is it real life data because I've not seen it in game. If so then it's probably something that was used to guide developers thinking when giving each car it's base stats more than something that has a big influence in the game.

Handling may be one thing, but if the Ford hits 60 1.3 seconds earlier and reaches a top speed 40 miles per hour faster; everything else is equal. So what gives?
