I used these results to pic the final cars to race for top spot. You can get an idea which are faster. Over 50 Different types tested! The Fastest car for each type were chosen for the final Top ten race!

I added an extra loop to both sides of the Competition speedway for these results. It is an average speed for the race. In the future I might test on straight track so I can get results for the Fire Engine and other Trucks that would not make this course.

 Story
The big surprise here is the Porsche Boxter car putting on a good show and beating out the Ultra-Speed F1 cars. And how about the McLaren F1 being the "car" to beat? The new black McLaren in the dual pack stole the spot of fastest non-novelty car. Litterally Powering over the Boxter, Z3, and Ultra F1's. The race head to head for top spot with the Boxter was heated. It is an interesting phenomenon to see such a close race with the Start & Win Box. What happens when both cars hit the finish at once is action packed! The car with the most power sends the other crashing backwards. Or they both smash into the finish and it is a bone crushing tie. Now matter the result a close race is eventfull. The McLaren sure earned the spot though. But thats not putting down the Porsche Boxter either! The '97 Corvette showed lot of heart too beating out some cars that were shown to be faster in time trials.  
 Recommendations
All the top cars are great cars but, if you can only buy one get the Porsche Boxter, or maybe the BMW Z3. The '97 corvette holds down the track real nicely too. I am not a McLaren F1 fan but the car sure surprised me, just hope you can find a color you like; the black one was real nice.

I am not sure I like the Competition Speedway set there aren't many loops and the cars had a little trouble staying on the track (the cars it came with work fine). I would get another and get the Start & win box separately.

The police variants of cars you can assume the non police variants should go as fast if not faster but it really depends on how good the motor is in the car you get. Many of the cars I put the same replacement motor in to get more reliable results.
