I will start with my favourite class. Tuners are mainly all Japanese rear wheel drive beasts, which can be geared up with massive tuning giving them great power and agility. Their handling allows tuners to be extremely fast in corners. They are also great for drift. We see many of them everyday on our cities' streets.

Mazda RX-8

Tier 1

This car will be our first choose if we decide to drive tuner cars - Tuner cars - CARS - Need for Speed Carbon - Game Guide and Walkthrough

This car will be our first choose if we decide to drive tuner cars. Very good handling makes it easy to drive and the Mazda is very good for first track. When you tune it up, it will become faster, but it still lacks in acceleration. Anyway, it's an ideal car for the beginner due to great handling.

Mazda 3 MPS

Little, funny Mazda is a great car, when it comes to tuning. It has very similar parameters to RX-8, but it handles a little worse. It's not as fun to drive as RX-8 as well, but in the car itself there is something that makes you want to have it. Maybe it's her face saying: "buy me"? :)

Mitsubishi Eclipse GT

The first Mitsu in the game is a little faster car than Mazdas. It's a typical Japanese coupe with a nice look. Easy to handle, fast and agile in the corners. Also the name Eclipse is surely attracting the three diamond's fans.

Volkswagen Golf R32

My darling bug from Most Wanted is not owning the streets in the same way it did in previous NFS, but you still should give it a closer look. It handles EXTREMELY well, besides it is small, which counts, when you race in the city streets, also is quite fast and looks like a shark, which will eat you if you don't choose it.

Mazda RX-7

This is the car of the exotic's gang boss - Kenji. And he has the nose, RX-7 is a very good and solid car. It handles well and has proper amount of horses under its hood. Maybe it's not as effective as Clio, but it's slightly faster in the beginning. The strongest car from Underground is losing its position with time, but the old steroids still work.

Nissan 350Z

Tier III

First tuner from tier III - Tuner cars - CARS - Need for Speed Carbon - Game Guide and Walkthrough

First tuner from tier III. And the weakest of them, which doesn't mean it's unworthy looking. It mainly attracts by it's visual design, which can be additionally tweaked up with tuning, also it has solid stats. But definitely 350Z is not in the Carbon's first league.

Subaru Impreza WRX STi

When you look on the parameters then the Impreza is same to the 350Z - Tuner cars - CARS - Need for Speed Carbon - Game Guide and Walkthrough

When you look on the parameters then the Impreza is same to the 350Z. Luckily, the new one looks better than this frog-eyed thing from Most Wanted, so it's not a shame to drive it :) It handles very well like all tuners, also looks aggressive - what else do you want?

Tier III

It looks phenomenal in black and even without any tuning is quite strong. Definitely will do even in the end of the game, but it's not the strongest car of this class.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX MR

Well, this one is - Tuner cars - CARS - Need for Speed Carbon - Game Guide and Walkthrough

Well, this one is. Very fast, also has the best handling upon all cars in the game, acceleration demon and a three year warranty. That's this guide's author favourite car. Many of top Polish NFS players use this one and not without a reason. What? You heard that four door sedans are family cars? You heard wrong.

Nissan Skyline GTR

It definitely doesn't look delicate with this wide standard bodykit, huge rear lamps and this spoiler. But if You can go on with it, there is a very good car, which loses with Lancer only in cornering.

The best Tuner in the game is the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR-Edition. It has perfect handling with excellent acceleration, making the it the best car for the canyons. Its only weakness is its top speed, but most tracks in the game feature a lot of corners.

That feeling when I got all the upgrades and yet I still can't win in straight ways. Then I realize I'm using a Tuner. Epic Fail

Tuner cars have the best handling out of all the car claases, so they'll be the easiest to control. They're also the cheapest cars and have the cheapest performance parts.

I was lucky to get Kenji's RX-7. That thing was awesome. But for some reason, I couldn't tune it the way I wanted. Then I bought a new one from the car lot and tuned it like hell. Something wrong with Kenji's car I guess. But I still drive using The EVO. It's the best in the game. Especially for the race against Darius. I was able to overtake him for 8 seconds using it, and beat him by 10000 points. Great car.

The Mitsubishi Lancer and the Nissan Skyline are the best Tuners in the game.

Street_king 07/04/2012 16:08

My favorite Tuners are the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX, Nissan Skyline, Toyota Supra, and the Subaru Impreza WRX STI.
