My favorite moment was when i had a 3-star wanted lvl. i was using the white/red banshee going down hill towards the subway ramp and landed on top of the of the train and was able to stay on the train for 3 minutes and drove on the tracks as the train was raping the back of my car (lol). But i got cuaght.
My choice is the Patriot or the another heavy car/truck that can doesnt spin out or flip easily. The tank works best it the torret is facing the back so you boost or blow up cops/feds/army cars/trucks/tanks fallowing you.
