I mean, why R* hasn't thought about it yet?.. I see everybody fighting to see "which car it's the fastest".. a drag race would definitely solve that. 1/4 or 1/2 mile, straight line, no posible mistakes.

 

If your friend keeps saying that his car it's fastest than yours, then shut his mouth up by making him eat sh*t.

 

But what would be really sweet, it's to make BIG bets, like 20k 30k 40k etc.. So, besides of lossing his pride, he would lose some cash too.

 

Of course, this sould be divided by ranks (1-20) (21-45) (45-80) (81- +120).so there wouldn't be any level 467 taking advantage of a low rank guy with a stock Blista..

 

And Obviously divided by car class. (an Entity against a Comet wouldn't be fair)

As much as I would love drag racing, there would have to be a way to stop people from giving money to their friends or other accounts.

As much as i would love this, it wouldn't really work. What happens when you have two maxed out Turismo and both players get a perfect launch? It will always be a draw. If we had Manual transmission option then yes! Unfortunately all we have is a brake and throttle button. Drag racing is much more than smashing the gas pedal going down a straight 1/4 mile.

 

Maybe on GTA VI though...hopefully!

They should have added this as an activity. Instead of that sh*tty movie theater, they could have made a Drag Racing strip somewhere in the vast open wasted space outside of Los Santos. It could work just like the Golf activity so you won't have to worry about trolls.

Drag races would be sweet, but kind of pointless because of the limited mod options...A fully specced Phoenix is as fast as a fully specced Phoenix and a fully specced Ruiner is faster than a Phoenix...All drag races would be fastest accelerating car vs. fastest accelerating car in each class.

 

And the unlimited betting would get nipped in the butt by R* because it is an easy qay for people to share money, and that's not what R* is about at this point in GTAo

i think "impromptu race" is our version of drag racing.

as for the bets, yes i think we should be able to bet as much as we want, is not like we still have hacked millions and stuff

I made a drag race for my friends and I if anyone is interested. It's exactly a mile long. 

 

I made a few versions in different places but the best place is by Fort Zancudo on that bridge. Longest/widest straight.

 

In the creator, all cars have staggered starts in narrow formations so to avoid this, You've got to use a wide road to start on and get as many cars side by side as you can. 

 

My particular race has a really cool start, with props set up around the start line for effect. There's also spectator seating and a hot dog stand.

 

If you do the race, make sure slipstream is turned off. It's a great way to see which of your friends has the fastest car. Great fun.

We did some testing to see if the Turismo was in fact faster than the Adder.

Made on PS3 btw.

Biggest issue I have with race creator is the minimum distance that a race has to be as a minimum requirement.

Ideally, the minimum length should be 400m or a 1/4 mile, which would allow us to similate a 1/4 drag strip.

The only thing I'd be concerned about with drag races would be other players pitting and ruining the race.

Perhaps a drag race on a long stretch of highway with barriers where there are turnaround openings?

Might be something to consider for the Content Creator, though a 2 person race might not have much payout or appeal to others. 

Tough to say, but great idea nonetheless! ;)

Have you ever tasted human excrement? I haven't but I heard it's absolutely awful. 

 

I would never force my friend or even my worst enemy to do such a disgusting thing. Nobody deserves that. 

 

I suggest you try it yourself to see how it is before making such grotesque statements.

1/4 or 1/2 mile drag strip, but with a real Tree light...that way your reaction time could become a factor when you race against a car exactly like yours. The better driver wins it!

This was a big problem for me when I was making certain races. I hate that .62 miles bullsh*t. I was barely able to make my race ''From a dig''. It was at .61 for the longest time, no matter what I did.. then the other day I finally managed to get it to .62 so I could publish it.

No, I'm not a drag racey person. Hey but if the majority likes it, they get it. Plus, who am I to decide what will be added to online?

Ot: I would really like Mario type races on mario type tracks. Whoever has played mario kart on gameboy advance will know this.
I want tracks like bowsers castle, rainbow circuit, etc.

Anybody else with me?

Dont know if any of you played nfs underground on ps2 but the drag racing in that was dope. 

 

You were automatically planted in one lane and could switch lanes by tapping left or right during the race. All you had to do was worry about getting good or perfect shifts.

 

If rockstar somehow added a drag racing feature like that it would be pretty sick

I'm really thrilled about sources of such ideas. 

Drag racing... Yeash, with auto gearbox, no clutch and no car settings.

Attempt at humor? How was that attempted humor?

 

Given what else you said is a clear sign that you must have unstable emotional issues, possibly hating the world and everyone in it because you were neglected as a child.

You picked out what obviously was a joke and either tried to be funny and act like a douchebag or are just a douchebag with no sense of humor.

As far as your assessment about me you are off. I just dont like douchebags like yourself

i'm all for drag racing, but wouldn't also have to watch out for pitters??
