Best of each car on NFS Carbon

Hello. I've been playing Carbon some minutes ago. I finished the game with the Tuner's. Now I'm trying with the Muscle. Being a huge fan of Honda's and Japanese cars, I always avoided some cars in the Underground Series and Most Wanted. I always went for Porsche's or Japanese, basically. The Evo and the Impreza were always two cars which I liked a lot. I also played with Lambo's... supercars. :) Now, in Carbon, I decided to give it a shot using Muscle, even knowing they were not my kind of cars. It was a good surprise really. They have a very good acceleration and in the bends you can avoid hitting walls if you reduce speed, even if the car is going sideways. With the tuner's, they have a lot of grip but, when they start to go sideways, it gets very tricky. Not with the muscle. Today I bought the Monaro VXR. I always loved that car. I saw some test-drives on Top Gear with this car. In the game, at first, it was strange and a bit disappointing. I had the engine stock and everything else at maximum. The car seemed to be too slow. I started with a drift track and it was awful. I decided to use it again and took it for a sprint in a canyon. Even though the engine didn't seem to fulfill my expectation (in real life it has a 6.0L V8 engine), it's handling is great. It seems almost like a tuner, but with a drift touch. I've been in more races with it. (I'm almost at 60% of the game.) In a straight line it isn't easy, but if you try hard enough you will win. After this career, I'll try the exotic's. I'd like to know your opinion on other cars.
