“This isn’t just a fast car. It’s a car with the kind of reputation that no amount of targeted advertising can buy. So, when some people see a Comet they make a wish. Others run screaming for cover, prophesying doom, destruction, and crippling medical expenses. Either way, you made an impression.”
The Comet S2, like its predecessor, performs quite well, having great acceleration and great speed. Braking power is good as it stops the whole vehicle rather quickly and decelerate the car pretty quickly too. Traction is excellent as it doesn’t cause much wheelspin when being launched hard and the vehicle’s cornering ability is also excellent as it feels very planted to the ground and one can turn tight corners with extreme speed without worrying of losing control. All these characteristics make it one of the best vehicles in its class and could even compete with stock cars in the super class as it’s able to keep up to them through the corner entry and stability through corner exits.
However, despite having excellent traction, the Comet S2 suffers from what is called a “Pendulum Effect” from rear-engined, rear wheel drive vehicles. When taking an s-curve, one must be cautious so as to not swerve right instantly after swerving left or vice versa as this will cause the car’s traction to break due to the vehicle’s weight shifting and upsetting the balance. Advice in tackling an s-curve with the Comet S2 is to go into the 1st corner with power then negotiate and enter the 2nd one with a slight touch of the brakes or not pressing on the accelerator and once the car points straight then continue pressing on the accelerator to power out of the final s-curve corner.
