the Sandking is King of the road? Please... It's not even the heaviest vehicle that can be stored legit anyway, the Patriot and Bodhi weigh more.
No, they most certainly do not weigh more, the Sandking's rims & tires are at least a half ton themselves
I'm going by the in game files R* made, not reality.
You can find the data for vehicles quite easily through google, modders have found them, and some people can change them with iso mods (e.g so a car weighs as much as a tank).
Sandking = 2400KG
Packer & Phantom (Semi Truck Tractors) = 12,000KG
Ever tried turning a partiot? Its a land barge. Not sure if this is true, but from my experience they are also incredibly weak in terms of strength. I've tried ramming with alot of other vehicles, but none of them seem to have the same effect as the sandking does. I'll try out the patriot tomorrow and see if its any good.
Its not just about ramming, though. The clearance can be useful, I use it all the time to drive over guard rails and walls in general. Its ramming ability probably comes mostly from its height. The point of impact is higher than that of normal vehicles, so its much easier to flip over vehicles instead of just ramming them and pushing them 10 feet.
