I know it's not a tuner but.....

I can't believe no one has suggested the Jaguar E-Type.

 

Don't worry about it, none of these guys knows what a tuner is anyways.....

 

 

Tuner cars are vehicles modified by either their own company or 3rd party companies. Modifications mostly range at tuning special bodykits, slightly changing the car's shape with an added variety of performance modifications. Examples are SLP Engineering, BMW Motorsport and Hennessey Performance.

 

Next time, think before you make statements.

Thanks for proving my point !  

 

Tuners are significant performance mods to a non performance vehicles!

 

Until you can drop a V8 in your Futo all you guys are doing is making Ricers!

 

 "Bodykits"  ya here's your tuner..

How ignorant are you? A lot it seems. 

 

I just said it had to do with performance mods and visual mods yet you only focused on the visual side as if you entirely ignored me mentioning performance. That and showing us your personal vehicle. Keep that to yourself. 

 

Visual modifications are a part of tuners. Your argument is invalid and your attitude vague.

What I told you DB if you listened is that there are no PERFORMANCE Mods in GTAO that would qualify as Tuning! (maybe adding a Turbo)

 

So if you only add the visual mods you have made a RICER! 

 

If that's your style fine but at least own it !

In online and single player the performance mods avaliable at LSC make a huge difference, For one I could barely win any races in my Sultan when it was stock but after adding all the engine, Brake and transmission mods along with the turbo it can beat a Carbonizzare if driven and handled correctly, Technically none of the cars in the game can be regarded as ricers, Of course things like the Futo are exceptions when it has the body kit installed but none of the performance mods.

 

Plus in the end ricers aren't actually that bad, IMO the only bad ricers are the ones that get bragged about and 'shown off' only to be outperormed by something that looks stock but perfoms like a race car (Sleeper).

 

Also unless you only regard really high performance mods (Engine swap, etc) as significant, Even just a simple addition of custom Springs/Sway Bars, Fuel filter or Advanced on board computer is enough to increase a vehicles performance

As you can most likely tell the Supra is my favorite car and because it is I don't want to see it become and FT-1 clone so if you can find one can you please post an image of the 'new' Supra's front.

 

And also if you know if there is a chance of it being this:vuVRV7T.png Can you let me know?

Well maybe you can tell us genius! Here's the Urban dictionary version

 

A person who makes unecessary modifications to their most often import car (hence the term "rice") to make it (mostly make it look) faster. The most common modifications are (but not limited to): 

- Huge exhaust that serves no purpose but to make the car louder 
- Large spoiler on the back that looks like something Boeing made for the 747 
- Lots of after-market company stickers they don't have parts from, but must be cool 
- Expensive rims that usually cost more than the car itself 
- Bodykit to make the car appear lower, 

 

The "ricer" attempts to make their car "performance" by adding the modifications listed above.

Springs/Sway Bars, Fuel filter or Advanced on board computer

 

Those are typical of the Engine  level 1 - 4 mods at LSC, nothing thats gonna make your 4 cylinder Futo into a "performance car"

 

as I said previous adding a Turbo is probably the only Tuning that can be done at LSC. 

 

I didn't say Ricers were bad, but if that's what you like "own it"! stop trying to convince us you've made a legit performance vehicle or "Tuner" in GTA

Yea but this is gta , not Forza.

I'm not sure all of that stuff, that'll make a "true tuner" would fit into the game.

So , as the game says, vehicles that increase performance would be tuners. Maybe next gen game would all the advanced options to be a "true tuner", but if A futo with engine 4 drag races a futo with an engine 1 and wins? Obviously there was some tuning going on.

And ricer, you guys have convinced me people these days will call anything rice.

A person who puts Koenigsegg doors on their chrome gold Prius, etc, is your standard ricer in my opinion.

In my opinion I actually have, I found a Phoenix and maxed it out, When it was stock it could barely compete in races but now that it is fully upgraded it can smoke a gauntlet, At least if you can drive/handle the car good enough.

 

Another example is the Coquette it has quite a good amount of visual mods and in terms of performance upgrades it's quite like the Phoenix, When it's stock it can barely take on another car in races except the Sultan, Banshee and Comet but when maxed it can dominate in most races if driven properly.

 

I know most tuners are JDM's but since there are practically none in this game I consider the good cars that have both a lot of visual customization and good racing potential to be tuners excluding the Feltzer which IMO is too over the top, For a Mercedes anyway.

Love the flip ups on the Futo and the Elegys lights should've never have had the RX-7 look Rockstar gave them, It's supposed to be a GT-R yet out of everything they still manage to mess up nothing but the rear lights.

The term Ricer has been changed so many times that it doesn't even have a concrete meaning anymore, it's all different meanings.

 

f*ck you, telling me to tell you? Do you have any idea how many times I've tried to explain the actual meaning? I've typed it so many times that it's not even funny.. It's burned into my eyes.

Everywhere, literally.. Videos, Forums,Blogs.. I know because I have to be able to defend tuners and myself.

 

Also, you say the definition is..

 

"When someone mods a car to make it look fast?"

 

Okay, well.. Why do you scream Ricer when you see a car with a bodykit or spoilers?

 

All of that affects it and can make it go faster.

 

Your "Definition" is invalid.

He clearly is unaware of the properties of carbon fibre and the fact that fibreglass kits really help with aerodynamic ability.


Also just a side note I've not been on this site for a long time.

 

This forum just got a Popular sticker at the first post, Does that mean it's pinned or something?

I don't know why you would consider it a slur? It's a perfectly good term to describe a type of vehicle. 

 

They're very popular all over the world, particularly among lower income kids who lack the cash to actually "Tune" their cars but still want something cool looking to drive.
