These cars are mainly for racing against each other with the same car, as they don't fit in any of the other classes available in LFS.

Tipping the scales at a mere 518 kg, the LX4 is a pretty light car and is quite fast around the twisted S1 tracks. Compared to its bigger brother, the LX6, the LX4 is easy to drive and ideal for beginners to learn how to control a LX-style car.
These LX cars need a fair amount of understeer in the springs to keep the controllable. Don't go silly with the spring rates though. Low tyre pressures are needed. Keep the diff as open as possible on the power side and reasonable well locked on the coast side. Some rear toe comes in very handy here.

Based on the real MRT5 built by the McGill Racing Team and competing in the Formula SAE championship this lightweight car is ideal for autocross tracks and slow configurations. The MRT5 is fun to drive and reminds you of a kart although it has more power and a differential. See the official website.
This car is best with SOFT suspension. Understeer is certainly not needed in the springs, it hurts turning too much. Just adjust antiroll bars to get the balance you want. Also, this car is extremely sensitive to differential settings. Use the viscous differential and keep it fairly open (low single digits). Very low tyre pressures. Rear toe comes in handy again here.

The least powerful car in the game, but far from being the least fun. In fact, the closest races are to be had when behind the wheel of this car. Certainly not suited to the faster tracks however.
Stiffer springs than usual to make up for the lack of antiroll bars, and will help generate some tyre heat. Pump plenty of air into those rear tyres or it will understeer to hell.
