While watching some racing clips, I came across this video:

At one point during the first race, he mentions how R* confirmed the Elegy RH8 being moved to the Supers class rather than being nerfed or buffed.

So what are your thoughts on this? I peronally think it's a false statement but very well could happen due to the superiority of the Elegy.

The only thing they need to do to the Elegy is change the sound

Interesting point...

But as we know, the Elegy RH8 is based on the Nissan R35 GTR, which is a classed as a Sports car but with Supercar performance.

Not gonna happen. It's a great car and it probably is a little OP in the sports class but it would be useless against supers on any track with long straights.

Meh, I've never been a fan of the Elegy... I've only kept mine because it's a) Free and 2) I've spent money on it.

This could happen, since R* did adjust the class of some cars, such as how the sentinel and schwartzer were moved to the sports class. Don't forget, the Voltic is in the super class even though it has a low top speed, whilst it's acceleration is one of the best in the game.

Before the Elegy can be considered for the super class it will at least need new brakes

The Elegy is fine as a sports car.  Doesn't need to be moved to supers since it's real-life equivalent isn't even a super car.

I made a topic similar to this when that video came out lol.

Anyway, I think the brakes are fine, maybe i'm just used to them but it needs higher top speed to be a super.

if they really move it to the super cars, then they should downgrade the voltic to sports. but IMO, the Elegy is a bit to slow to be competetive in super car races.

He's full of sh*t.

 

The car that the RH8 is based on, the Nissan GT-R, is a sports coupé so it's correctly classed according to it's real life counterpart...

I doubt that it will be moved to Super although it would be very competitive. I don't trust a teenager on Youtube that calls himself gunit.

 

The thing with the Elegy is that you need to be able to maintain it's speed through corners and really know the track or you will get overtaken. The brakes aren't the problem since you don't need to brake as much as with other cars.

It would stand up good in a non-contact Super race with a suiting circuit but that isn't enough.

You do realize the maker if the video is GUN1T123 right? The biggest liar on the internet right!?

 

Remember his "Worlds fastest MW2 Nuke" that he said was real for like 2 years then said it was fake.. he does this sh*t for the views, I can't believe he has 200k+ subs with all his BS 'info' videos!

 

Just unsub from him ffs it's all lye's everything he says.

Eurgh really?! GuNiT123 still makes videos?
This guy committed the ultimate crime in online gaming and faked the worlds fastest Nuke on MW2.
Of course I'm only joking but Jesus Christ he's irritating and everyone hated him 3 years ago for a reason.

On which case you must consider Corvette, Porsche, Audi R8 etc super cars too. Because they are, in real life.

Elegy won't be reclassified, maybe on some tracks its the best sport, but I'll guarantee if you can handle the carbonizzare it's the best sport. Although, carbo can't do well on certain courses (off-road), which is why I have like 5 sports cars for racing.

You are the real sh*t here.How much does your mentioned super car costs?& can they be easily tuned up to 1000bhp like a GTR R35?You know sh*t about real cars & you come up with tons of crap

Supercar killer as a selling point doesn't work if the car in question is also a supercar.

Based on 0-60 it is super

0-60 doesn't determine the class of car it's in

Ken Block's 600HP Rally X Fiesta (or Tanner Foust's if you don't like Block) can get from 0-60 in 1.8 seconds, does that make it a super car? no, it's still a subcompact Fiesta

Red Victor 3 3000HP road legal drag racer, it was a saloon but now... I can't say... Muscle car? Last time I called it a muscle car some Americans started crying. A coupé? ehhh... That's not the point. It's not a super car... 0--60 in about 1 second, 1/4 mile 6.59s @ 220 MPH.

 

By your logic a subcompact car and something that was once a saloon car are super cars...

The GTR is a sports car. Stop watching these crazy modified GTR and saying it can beat a super car. the standard GTR is not as fast as you think, plus the thing has more computers assisting the driver than any car in the world.
