Ok, so screaming down the highway, im in my tricked out Obey 9f right, hammer down, and my friend is in some Ruiner he jacked, and I cant gain on him or leave him in the dust as one would expect in a Supercar.


What the crap Rockstar?

Everything goes the same speed. Slow.

Upgrades dont really affect anything.

Perhaps a revamp is in order?

Engine upgrades should make your top speed faster, transmission should make you accelerate faster, but cut down top speed from the use of close ratio gears, turbo does what again? Nothing. Thats what. 35k of uselessness, unless you want the noise.

Now I understand races might be edgy, but if you think someone who saved up for a supercar, wants to outrun a level 3 guy in a ruiner and cannot, is happy, then you are wrong.

The supercars should by DEFAULT be insanely fast. I mean, I havent seen bullsh*t like this since Driver 3, when the Lamborghini countach was everybit as fast as the taxi cab, and capped at like 100 mph.

I dont expect Forza, but come on.....someone drops 200k on a supercar, and you cant even outrun a camaro. Booooo. BOOOOOOOOO.

Because nothing affects top speed which is absolutely retarded.

I hate racing with my maxed out Voltic and some guy in a stock cheetah/entity xf/adder, beats me.

Do you actually know anything about the car it's based on?

 

If you were looking for top speed it's a bad choice

Yeah I'm quite aware that it's an electric car, but that doesn't matter now because I've already got my Adder for racing l0l.

Agreed. The cars all have their own type of feel but the mods dont matter, cosmetic upgrades are the only thing worth buying. Its a shame players take the time to unlock the upgrades only to find they do nothing. added a blower to my vigaro, it had no effect on the performance, its just a hood option. Lame

Has nobody noticed all the cars max out around 130mph?

 

Check your social club and look for fastest speed you've ever drove, I guarentee it tells you between 115-130mph, I've tried every supercar and th fastest I got was 129.4mph in a RapidGT

 

Just checked got 136.8mph in an Elegy.

yea its bogus, and if you are going fast enough and you look close enough you will notice the NPC cars f*cking super speed sometimes in front of you just to make sure they are in position to crash into you.  Especially in the mission races thing. total bullsh*t.  The cops always do it too in order to catch up to you, but they never do it when you are looking at them, thats the secret to disabling that supercheat of theirs, but its hard to drive when youre going 150 and looking behind you the whole time, lol!

Yeah, sh*t, San Andreas on ps2 at least had the idea down pat. Good luck catching the Infernus in your esperante.

Now, you can square off against a hypercar with a suv.

Performance upgrades(engine,trans,turbo) have an effect,just look at your laptimes in races after adding upgrades. Also you can make your car faster even after the accelertion bar has maxed out.

ive accepted that this game is not an attempt at realism, anyone who graduated high school will notice pretty quickly that a game that omits a speedometer istrying to mask its flawed physics. How can you take racing seriously without a gauge cluster? The answer is you cant, and that is disappointing. Luckily the cars are just a part of this game, it would recieve horrible reviews from gt or forza fans.

exactly why I never wasted my money on upgrades, until they change the top speed for them and give braking stat better increases based on the brakes that you chose.

 

turbo makes your car accelerate faster but doesn't make it go faster..

engine and suspension upgrade do something, I test my times on some short circuit and went 2.5 sec faster consistently with a engine 2 upgrade and sport suspension, pretty sure transmission upgrade work well too.

I'd prefer 'always not an available feature.'

Maybe deathmatches should leech health from the match leader or last team standing make the winning team lag when aiming and firing.

Really now!? You those upgrades don't make the car go faster. Look here. The full bar is about a top speed of between 265-280. The top speed a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 goes out if fully modded out. Now my KITT edition Ruiner hits about 180-200. Also. Whenever you're in a position nearest to inside the car. Like mounted on the hood, or inside the car. Then it doesn't look like you're really going as fast as the speedometer says. Like when going 65 on the highway. While looking forwards things appearing to be going so slow. But outside or looking out the window things appear to be going passed you at a very high speed. Now I have a 1987 Firebird Trans Am GTA in Forza 3,4 that can top out at 217 miles per hour. And when I turn the came off to the side of the car in GTA 5. Everything is going by as fast as in a NASCAR race at Daytona when the cars are travel at speeds of 200+. So don't tell me especially if one person has a top speed of 188 on record.

One day it's gonna dawn on some of you that GTAO is simply not that great a game... and never will be. Huge potential, abysmal execution. This is the reality.
