Have you guys noticed how this car handles? It has not THAT powerful brakes, doesn´t change direction THAT fast... the steering turn in is slower, the ratio at which it turns in a circle is similar to real cars full lock... it actually perform roughly how you´d expect a car like that to perform, maybe the only sportcars/supercars to do so.

 

Apparently it´s a free car for R* social club members, wonder if they´re using this car to have a look to see how people would cope with cars like these...

It definitely drives like its RL counterpart than majority of the other cars do. GTR ftw.

Too bad I can't stand how they changed the rear end of it for the game.

That´s a minor annoyance. You know they can´t fully reproduce cars and the models are generally crossovers between 2 models. If they made every sportscar perform like this, game would improve 100%.

 

After driving this thing for a while, I switch to the Audrey 9F and I find my self braking waaaay too early and hitting stuff on the inside of corners due to the different steering the first 2-3 minutes. It´s not a car anymore, it´s a spaceship.

It's only weakness is the Brakes.

 

It has great starting stats (beside the Brakes) from the get-go and gets much better after modding it a bit.

Where you see a weakness I see more representative handling and performance. :lol:

Kidding me? With the engine upgrades, it is one of the easiest/best racing sports cars.

Handling in this game is so easy.

Gonna disagree. I've had the same one since about level 14-ish, and really haven't found a reason to get a different car. I've grown accustomed to how it handles as well as a certain degree of sentiment. Definetly worth the price.

Thanks for the heads up because I´m not touching one screw of it then.

Go to internet, cars and travel, legendary motorsport, pick the car, select the colour, click buy, and it´s yours for free. One last thing, take it to LSC to get rid of the horrid two colours paintwork.

Fully modded and this thing is exactly like a Gtr, my favorite car in the game but I don't use it as much cause it's not fully modded.

car handles like sh*t, and every car looks like sh*t with chrome paintjobs. especially when the rims are not even chrome and some flat metal color instead. just my opinion but i dislike this car.

and its the RH8... not R8

That´s the point. If feels heavier, the steering feels less cartoony, the brakes are worse. For you it might be a pain but it´s closer to an actual car than let´s say the 9F.

 

I´ve had to put some effort to pick my braking points with this thing for the first time in ages. Which is great, and other cars should be like that in that respect too.

In response to this thread, I predict rockstar buffs the car to be super awesome fun mode instant turn cool happy time like all the other cars

It's actually a lot easier to drive than most other sports/super cars.

Yes and no.

 

It´s easier in the sense that it´s more intuitive for someone familiar with car basic mechanics. Example? I never turn too much and hit stuff on the inside of a corner, or brake too early and then have to get on the power again before the corner, because its braking and turning ability is closer to a proper car compared to let´s say the 9F.

 

 

But for a crashkid it´s harder than other cars because it won´t slow down instantly and won´t turn into a corner that fast.
