Does anybody else feel that the supercars are too slow? I'm just drawing this conclusion because I took out my full upgrades Adder and hit the highway trying to see how fast I can get it to go. I hit the last gear and I was at the highest RPM and I checked my speed in the stats menu, it said it was 130... Isn't that car supposed to go at least 250? I then tried the same procedure with Franklin and the car was going less than 169 (not sure how much less because my top speed for Franklin was 169 with a Coquette, so I just assumed the Adder was going less).

I actually wondered this as well, the top speeds of the super cars don't feel very fast at all, and there's no way to even mod them to max out the speed bar.

I believe Franklin is the only character who can get the cars to their full top speed and he does it by going into his special ability. It can be quite jarring to come out of the ability sometimes due to the high speed.

Oh, I thought that just made the cars handle around corners better, didn't know it made them go faster. The in-game website shouldn't advertise the Adder by saying it hits 250 when only Franklin can hit that with a special ability...

Did you do this with his special ability? Because I've taken an adder down the longest highway stretch and literally pushed it until the limit and my stats say 130~ MPH.

I guess that's how he did it. I'm getting the same stats with the Adder, give or take 1-2 mph. I wish you can go fast with the other characters though :(. Such a shame.

Are you kidding me?? The cars on here are fast as f*ck! I'm literally on edge with sweaty palms red lining the f*ck outta my car while dogging traffic prayin to god I don't blow up if I crash!

I loved it when they fixed the speed on here since IV's super cars felt slow as sh*t.

If anything that feels slow in this game, it's the jets, especially the fighter jet.

They may feel like they're going fast, but the fastest you can get any car to go is 130 without Franklin's special ability. That is, Michael and Trevor can't drive faster than 130 or so.

Perhaps speed is only recorded when you drive past a police officer doing speed checks? I timed myself with the phone and the distance of a waypoint and hit ~225mph in a customized Infernus, but social club says my top speed is ~140 in a Rapid GT IIRC.

True, true.

But as long as I feel like I'm goin fast and not feel like my car can't hit faster than 55mph like IV then I'm fine with it :pp

I doubt that. I got my top speed of 169 mph in the city where there were no cops around. Speed checks are usually next to the highways.

Tried driving an Elegy with Michael as fast as I could. Couldn't get higher than 130 either. But with Franklin in the same car I got 243. Then I died. lol Everything just comes at you so fast after his special runs out.

I just think that's pretty stupid. If the game advertises an Adder (for example) as being able to go 250 mph, then it should be able to go 250 mph on every character. Using it on Franklin with just a special ability is lame.
