I only put armor in my vehicles as an afterthought. I haven't run into any trouble with an armor-less car.

Armour needs to be bought with Engine upgrade to balance it out.

 

Saying that I've upgraded my Infernus 100% with Armour and noticed no decline in speed so rubbish.!

I think people here are confused about the protection from bullets argument. It's pretty clear that armor makes the car harder to blow up with bullets. The question is does it protect the player inside the car? From what I can tell it doesn't make the windows stronger. I'm not sure if you can be shot through the body work of the car. I don't recall this ever happening to me though.

you can't be shot through the car, think of driving backwards in entity.. Can't be hit, just blown up after certain amount of damage

I ran a fairly straight .62mi track to test this in an Adder.

Without armor: 22.174, 22.141, 22.100

With armor: 22.208, 22.161, 22.104

Looks like armor doesn't slow you down.
