I tested this out after seeing some murmurs on the forums about this yesterday.

 

Final results: When a bar has been "maxed" out, it can still be upgraded, but it won't be visually shown at Los Santos.

 

If this has been done before, I haven't really seen it around. I know as of yesterday there was a discussion, so I decided to go ahead and do this.

 

I have more testing videos coming soon regarding exact testing/comparisons of simultaneous accelerations/speeds/turns of all the super/hyper cars at once over the next couple days.

 

The 9F is still my favorite car. Cheetah is, IMO, the "best" car and combination of spd/acce/handling/braking. Yours?

My Entity looks almost the exact same. Mine is a little darker burgundy, I love it. Candy Red with a Black/Blue Pearlescent. It's fantastic.

 

....Is that a spoiler on yours? ><

do you think the body kit changes do anything to the car in terms of speed, handling?. I swear the car feels different but I can't really afford to test it out.

Infernus. I feel like so many people overlook it because it's not new, but it feels better than any other car to me.

Common sense that the actual numeric value can increase beyond what the GUI can display.

I'm almost certain it's just cosmetic, as far as Spoilers, etc. I haven't tested those out specifically, and any changes would likely be overwhelmed by minute/tiny differences in pressing the accelerator first or 2nd.

For the Roll cages, they're mainly for repelling damage. A Roll cage/chassis upgrade will drive better with punishment.

I'll test it out later, but I'll only post if I find something, I suppose.

For those of us coming from UT, the mode has a hard cap of 100/max displayed. Any upgrade past 100 renders it still capped at 100. I usually like to quantify stuff when there are questions. I was curious if this was the same, and I do stuff like this to prove things one way or the other.

Some people like spoilers. The Entity has a "Big, Giant Bullet" feel to it, to me at least. Putting a spoiler on a bullet seems kinda iffy. 

 

Some cars need it though. I put the Wing on my Comet, love it. The Entity is decent with it, but cars like the 9F/Bugatti with a spoiler looks terrible, imo.

I thought the same, to be honest. Glad to see that it's not a cap. Any requests for cars to include in the big test/races besides the Cheetah/Entity/Adder?

cheetah is actually one of the worst. the carbonizzare is the best accelerating/speed but it likes to spin out because its so powerful, the adder is a bit faster but doesnt accel as fast, and the rapid gt is a bit slower but accels faster.

the entity has the best grip coefficients though as well as being pretty balanced (not quite as good) but its awd as well.

I'm trying to get video proof comparing everything directly. I dislike vague things that you can't prove, I like to do things empirically. I'd like to test on turns, too. Soon...

Acura's are pretty sweet cars.

 

Tested out all the major cars. Carbonizzare indeed seems to be the best one of straight, pure acceleration. Cheetah seemed to turn/grip the best. Video coming in a day or two,

If you take your custom car into a race, on the car selection screen you will see the actual bar sizes. They are double what are shown in the LSC. So even if the bar is full when you are modding, there is actually still a tonne of room for improvement.
