Hey guys,
so last week I saw the new Top Gear episode set in southern california. It also featured some awesome drag racing.



So what about some nice drag racing in V? I think it would be a nice minigame if car modification returns.
As you can see in the youtube-link the winner of the race can be quite surprising.
I guess it would be fun...maybe they can even include some manual shifting.
What do you think?

Its fun, but that is something that you could just do in a game with your friend, even if its not a minigame.

In singleplayer it would be cool to be able to pull up next to someone with a modded car at the lights and if that person wants a race with you it would bring up an icon and you get to accept or decline the race.

It would be cool but I think it should have some kind of a challenge other than just pinning R2 down and seeing who has the fastest car. Maybe something like controlling the clutch with R3 and using R2 and L3 normally. Shifting should also be included in a dragrace minigame to make it even more challenging.

But since no one can drive a manual geared car in the states I really don't think this will be in the game.

I'm getting tired of all the racing missions; this would be different and much better. They could even make it a minigame.

Never mind the 9mm, just switch to one of the other two characters and take out the competition with an RPG..

That's why they're called 'drag' races, because you will be free to drag your ass over the finish line at your own leisure..

I loved drag racing in NFS: Pro Street, specially in the Nevada Highway. It'll be loads of fun if we're able to drag race in the outskirts of LS, or maybe even on runways. tounge.gif

Manual shifting! Hell yes! But I definitely don't think it should be limited to just drag. Some sprints would be nice. Underground racing rings, too. There could be a whole money front attached to it. How's that for spending money? I'd always be broke customizing. I mean hell, it's LA, it would be a crime not to have a car scene there--with Franklin in the middle of it--without having customization and racing.

Drag Racing? No. I think after the Ballad of Gay Tony... Rockstar is going to take a different route.

GTA 5 can truly be the best game ever.

Imagine demolition derbies, drag racing, submarine battles, tennis, fighter jet fights, dirt track racing all in game. GTA 5 will definitely have all these things in free-roam. They just need to actually make them game-modes.

So IMO drag racing should definitely be in the game. I already do drag racing with mates in the airport in GTA IV. But it would be better if it was actually a game-mode.

Drag racing doesn't seem too unlikely to me, but idk about manual shifting. I mean, it's not a racing game.
