Zero G buggy
The game developer had a hard-on for the Zero G, because it's featured in more challenges than any other vehicle. The problem is that even though it's a top-tier vehicle it has very poor handling. It loves to get bounced all over the place by every little bump in the road, and it hunts grooves in the road like a blood hound. All of this causes it to veer out of control against your will, forcing you to fight against it to get where you're going. The faster you go, the more this problem exacerbates. Having it thrown into challenges (like all the Blitz runs the developer used it in) with insane time limits and very narrow "goat trail" paths that bat it around like a cat toy is just insult to injury.
Here, though, we have a manageable race. 1) you're fighting opponents that actually have to drive the course, not impossible time limits that don't represent the reality of the situation. 2) You have plenty of large, flat roads to drive on, which the "G" excels at. 3) the short-cuts are all light off-roading, which lets the "G" maintain a decent speed (unlike the heavy weeds in other challenges and races that bog it down faster than a turd in a toilet).
If you can weasel your way past the competition early on, then the rest of the race will be some clear sailing. The final opponent puts up a good fight, though, so you may have to run this one several times before winning.
