Vote on who is the best crew member,and what you think is the best crew combination according to the bonuses, and ability.

Personally, i think having Samson, Yumi, and Nikki is the best, because both Yumi and Nikki (a good drafter, even without the extra drafting area) give you discounts on parts and cars, and Samson gives an extra 10% on races (seems like a better blocker than Neville)

I have Neville and Samson because they have heat-lowering bonuses, and i could have another crew member, but i don't know who...

I used Yumi a lot for her nitro boost, and she doesn't seem to get in my way as much as Nikki did (I guess it's due to the nature of drafters... utterly useless type of crewmember imho). I usually had her turned off so she'd stay behind me a lot, once I knew my way around the shortcuts.

I have Samson, Nikki, and Yumi. I love Samson and Yumi, Nikki I have as backup.

I use Colin and Nikki most, and Yumi before I unlocked any drafters. I like the drafting crew members best.

Samson, Neville and Yumi.

The two guys because they increase the amount you get from races and Yumi because she gives 10% discount on Performance Parts.

BTWs Maxxed_out I was just about to post the same topic :P

Personally, I like neville the best, but usually race with Samson.

I hire Colin and Sal when I want to modify my vehicle,
I hire Nikki and Yumi when I need a car or parts,
I hire Samson and Neville when getting ready to race.

Yumi was great when she had her Eclipse. That car seemed to be faster than anything...and with her shortcut use, if I didn't win...she definitely did.

Samson, Neville and Nikki
Samson as active, Neville gets me 200 buck bonus just for being on hire and Nikkir for the part discount ;\

Do you hire and fire when it is needed?

No reason to have one hired when they do no good. It costs nothing to hire and fire, and will always get you any bonuses needed.

I used Neville, Nikki & Yumi the whole way. I thought Neville would be the best choice for a blocker (nicest too), Yumi for a scout (hottest & useful) & Nikki as the best drafter. I rarely use Nikki, I prefer finding shortcuts or knocking opponents into the dust. I still don't get how a dreafter works at all. :\

I wanted to make Nikki's Ford GT look like a stock blue with white racing stripes, but i couldn't remove her vinyl and fired her.

Nah, never did. Scouts didnt serve much purpose at all to me, drafters got more in the way and crashed more than anything so i didnt ever use them :|

I meant hire and fire when going around the garage menus, like if you want to get a chop top. Do you fire someone (like Yumi), hire Colin, chop the top, fire Colin, rehire the fired crew member if their skills are needed.

junh, try using the twotone vinyl but use the same color. Cover the whole car, and use what ever vinyls you want.

I start with Exotics all the time, and my usual line-up is Samson, Colin and Sal. Pretty funny to see the AI go into the wall. I also like painting everybody's cars in Stacked Deck attire too.

I used Samson, Sal and Yumi a lot of the time, just because they were best to race with, and didnt get in the way too much...
and of course i believe in the hire and fire technique

Samson and Neville to max. the money, Nikki when racing at Tier 3 before unlocking a T3 car ('cos it seems impossible to win without her), others hired and fired as needed.
