What is the Best GT3 in SimRacing for You?

Let’s get one thing clear: There is no 1 GT3 car that is going to solve all of your problem. No matter what sim you play. If there were, it would be a huge balancing problem that would hopefully soon be resolved. So without further ado, here’s how to select the best GT3 car for you!

Step 1: Drivetrain Arrangement

All GT3 cars have rear wheel drive. So the only question about the drivetrain is where the engine is located. You have three options there. Front engine, mid engine and rear engine. You would be best off trying 1 option of each engine arrangement.

Following are a bunch of examples:

Yes, the Porsche is the only rear engine car.

As you can see on the engine layout diagram, generally, the further the engine is rearwards, the more the centre of gravity shifts to the rear as well. In theory this means more weight on the driven rear wheels. Hence the vehicle has an easier time to transfer the power onto the road.

Try out one of the cars of each engine arrangement and see what naturally feels best for you. Once you have decided on the layout it’s time for the next step:

Step 2: The GT3 Cars

Now check the possibilities for the cars.

If you selected rear engine, it’s simple, you have no other choices than to go for the Porsche.

If you selected mid engine, check the following cars:

  • Audi R8 LMS GT3
  • Ferrari 488 GT3
  • Honda/Acura NSX GT3
  • Lamborghini Huracán GT3
  • McLaren 720S GT3
  • Chevrolet Corvette C8.R GT3

Not all these cars are available in all sims.

Now amongst those. Are there any that stand out to you? Perhaps you like any of these brands specifically? Perhaps your great-uncle-once-removed once drove a Lamborghini. Or maybe you are a proud Englishman and want to drive your own McLaren.

What I’m getting at is that it doesn’t really matter which of these cars you drive. You have to drive it with enthusiasm though. Keep at it! Enjoy driving it and you can make it work! Learn the ins and outs of the car. And if you have any personal connection to your vehicle, that makes making it through tough times easier.

If you selected front engine, check the following cars:

  • Aston Martin Vantage GT3
  • Bentley Continental GT3
  • BMW M4 GT3
  • BMW M6 GT3
  • Lexus RC F GT3
  • Mercedes AMG
  • Nissan GT-R NISMO
  • Chevrolet Corvette C7 GT3-R

Now amongst those. Are there any that stand out to you? Perhaps you like any of these brands specifically? Perhaps your mother picked you up from kindergarten in a Nissan. Or maybe you are a proud German and want to drive your own Beemer.

The Point

Just try it. Do what feels right. Having fun is the most important thing. If you are miserable driving your car you will not be as competitive.
