I had one before, but admittedly didn't do enough testing to really get a feel for the car. Tried it out again today (minus off-roading, where I imagine it's HORRIBLE), and I REALLY like it.

 

It looks good modded (if you like the "ricer" cars, like me), it's fast, the handling is good once you learn how to brake/drift properly, and it's really cheap.

yea it's a pretty nice car. also P.S "ricer" is usually a term used for a wannabe street racer.

Yep, for what I know, it is indeed inspired on the AE86.

I love mine, the first car I owned in multiplayer and he not just has a special spot in my 10 car garage, but is also still often used :')

Being front-wheel drive, I assumed it would be pretty badass off-road. N'est pas?

It has Rally visual mods and drives sideways better than it does in a straight line... it is made for the dirt roads!

Well yeah, but I mean bumpy mountain climbing (and falling).

Futos have never been FWD they're supposed to resemble the ae86 corolla. My fave in the game along with the sultan. But my "panda" is the first car I pull out of the garage when I play online for sure!!

Yuki <3 Futo
Since the first time I drove it in GTA IV. :)

Blista (compact) has been one of my fav's since Vice City, but Futo.. It looks like cr4p and that's the main thing. People look at it like "yeah right". And then they eat your dust. ^__^

When I get bigger garage, Futo will be the first addition. Then Blista. :)

I had one for a while and fully modded it as far as i could. Then i bought the Comet.... I find the Comet much more fun. It drifts just as well, easily do donuts and is far, far quicker.

I preferred the boat physics of GTA4 when it came to that car.

 

I never drive the Futo in V.

In fact I don't think I drive any Rice Rockets. I had a Sultan once but sold it.

 

The only Japanese Cars I like are Mitsubishis and Hondas *Maibatsus and Dinkas*, and neither of them are very promenent in the GTAVerse, Karin *Toyota/Subaru* is the only real one

So far i believe its safe to say out of the 4 fully upgraded sports cars i had, this one was by far the worst. Not only is it squirrely around EVERY turn (definitely a better drift car) but it is also BY FAR the slowest thing in my garage even behind my sedan.

The futo is made to drift not be fast IMO. It will always have a place in my garage.

I like it because it's, well...FUN TO DRIVE! Also, as Yuki said, people look at it and think it's crap, but it's surprisingly fast for its appearance.

 

But no car in this game will beat my Akuma. There are so many advantages that bikes have that it's not even funny (on free-aim servers, at least).

 

1. It's quicker, and the acceleration is unmatched

2. No need to brake around turns

3. Can lane-split almost any gap

4. Easy to climb mountains MUCH quicker than even off-road vehicles

5. You can do wheelies

6. Bikes look badass

7. You can use shotguns (and probably Assault Rifles, but I don't have one yet)

curious... what does this have to do with the Futo?

Forgive me if I'm wrong but wasn't every car RWD in IV?

 

I never noticed any FWD IV and in V I noticed it pretty much straight away. Not saying that's a fact, I just never saw it.

Nothing. I was just saying that it's fun to drive the Futo...but even better to ride the Akuma.

Appearances can be deceiving, I got my hands on one of these a while back and was surprised. Actually went up the southern bike trail of Mt Chiliad with one, lots of fun.

My Bati 801 with Turbo will easily smoke ur akuma, ive raced many and lost very few. Akumas have high stock acceleration but basic top speed. I have my batti's acceleration maxed to surpass any akuma... Message me if you wanna race
