So you’ve probably spent quite some time with Raceroom and are now wondering which are the best cars to buy to level up your game.
Don’t worry, because in this article I’m going to show you the best Racerrom cars to use or buy in 2022.
The best cars will ultimately give you the quickest lap times as well as incredibly realistic driving feedback.
Here’s what you should be looking for when figuring out whether a car can be among the best of its class or not:
If you want to set purple sectors and win online races, your car has gotta be great on the brakes. Period.
This is because passing in Raceroom most often happens in corners and braking sections (and probably only there), not in straights like it might happen in Formula 1 with DRS zones.
So you need a car which doesn’t understeer on the brakes and is easy to steer with while braking. The ability to do correct trail braking is fundamental for you to brake late and set fastest laps.
So always look for cars that don’t overlock wheels when braking (and the steeper you brake, the more this happens) or cars that can be trail braked into corners without losing the rear.
Traction is key guys.
No matter how many horsepowers your car is or how gorgeous it is under braking, if it can’t put the power down to the ground, winning races will be damn hard.
So get a car that doesn’t wheelspin all the time when accelerating.
Put the throttle just before the apex and you will destroy your competitors.
Yeah, theoretically you could always increase the TC (Traction Control) to improve the traction but that doesn’t mean the actual mechanical grip from the car is improved.
In fact, you might reduce the wheelspin like that but your lap times won’t benefit that much.
As the saying goes, you need big balls for high-speed corners and that can only be achieved with a car that has some great aerodynamics.
Always look for newly updated aero packages to level up your game and win races online.
Think about all the high-speed corners in SPA Francorchamps for example.
If you don’t have a great aero setup, you’ll either crash in the wall or lose a couple of seconds in the best-case scenario.
Last but not least you need pure SPEED.
As long as you don’t want to be a sitting duck on the straights, having decent horsepowers will grant you the ability to overtake your competitors as well as setting fastest laps in tracks like Monza.
Long straights with few corners will punish you if you don’t have a car that can achieve high speeds on them.
So always look for cars with great top speeds and the gearing that makes them able to go full throttle for as long as possible.
Ok, so now you know what you’re looking for when choosing a car.
So without further ado here is the list of the top Raceroom cars you may have to get yourself today.
I must say that each one has its own unique driving feel and characteristics which will be important for your decision-making process.
Now, let’s see which ones can be qualified as the best in their class.
Porsche 911 GT3 R
If you’re planning to spend some time racing in the GT3 class, the Porsche 911 GT3 R might now become your go-to car.
Now for this one I can’t really give you a straight answer as it depends on what you’re looking for.
In terms of pure performance, the Porsche 911 GT3 R is a mean machine that has won championships all over the world in real life and is also one of the top cars to choose from in Assetto Corsa Competizione and iRacing.
So why do we say that?
Because the Porsche 911 GT3 R is a car with great acceleration, good top speed and handling that makes it quite easy to drive as well as very rewarding in terms of lap time.
Remember that with Raceroom Racing Experience you can always test drive the cars before buying them, so take advantage of that.
BMW M4 GT4
If instead you were into GT4s, then the BMW M4 GT4 might be a great choice as it has been one of the most successful cars around for quite some time now.
It’s fast, reliable and has a good amount of grip and power available.
Of course it’s quite a few seconds slower than Gt3 cars, but hey, if you’re a total sim racing beginner it can actually be a good thing to get started.
So if you’re able to handle that 4 seconds gap per lap (to the Gt3s) and you like what you see then go ahead and give it a try.
Corvette C6R GT2
With 525 horsepowers the Corvette is surely one of the quickest and best sounding cars in Raceroom.
This is a good choice for those looking to race in the protoypes or GT2s, as they are quite similar to GT3s, yet a bit faster.
You might also want to look into the Corvette C7R GT2, but it can be a bit trickier to handle.
So why not giving it a shot, or just test it first?
Audi RS3 LMS
WTCR cars are great fun to drive and have a lot of potential for being good performers even in fast corners.
If you’re looking to spend some quality time racing a car that does not require a lot of work and you’re into touring cars then the Audi RS3 LMS might be good for you.
Formula Raceroom 3
The FR3 is a real beast and will grant you an amazing driving experience.
Setups are not very hard to get right, there’s tons of power to use and the car is incredibly stable even in high-speed corners and heavy braking zones.
The car runs with zero assists making it very challenging to drive.
