I think this YouTuber is, like most of his kind, full of sh*t.

This. again and again.
 

 

 

 

The GTR is not a supercar.
It's an incredible car, but not a super.

The gtr r35 is a japanese super car,its also touted as a super car killer

 

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

 

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

 

 

So the r35 is considersed as a supercar because it can be easily tuned up to 1000+hp?

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

 

The GTR R35 can easily be upgraded to 1000bhp which lamborghinis or other supercars cannot & it costs only a fraction of those typical super car,hence super car killer,understood?It also beaten a lot of super cars

Does not matter at all.

 

A supercar is a supercar based on price and performance. The r35 doesn't have a supercar price tag, which is why it isn't a supercar.

 

And as already pointed out, being able to easily upgraded to 1000 or more horsepower doesn't mean a whole lot. You can do this with a lot of cheap cars.

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 Elegy is stock though.

 

Doesn't matter, if 0-60 did determine the car class then it would apply to all cars... stock or modified.

I dont care what car its based on or what its specs are...if they move it to supers it will cease to exist in any garage of a player capable of buying any other super. It will be the nubs free supper car and that will be it. It will not be able to compete.

It's a good sports car, not a super car. If it moves to the Super class then it'll be the worst performing out of all of them.

Agreed. It might be able to compete with the Voltic and Vacca but it will be completely outclassed by the Zentorno and Entity.

 

Besides, skilled drivers are more than able to compete with the Elegy while driving a Jester or Massacro. The Elegy does not need to get nerfed.

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.

 

The Carbonizarre couldn't win a race on any track that has a turn in it.  

 

The Elegy is an absolute monster in the Sports class and would be a welcome addition in Supers.  Then I could sell my Zentorno.

I would move it for performance reasons.

The sports class would be VERY tight then between Feltzer, Massacro, Jester and 9F. Now it's an Elegy dictatorship.

As a super, the Elegy would still be pretty competitive too.

The Elegy wouldn't be able to compete against the the higher tier Super cars like the Entity, Adder, Turismo and Zentorno. Why would it be worth moving it up.

 

It's top tier in Sports but drivers in Jesters and Carbos can compete against it.

 

If anything. Cars from the Superclass need move down, like the Bullet and maybe the Vacca.

Elegy can even be the ABSOLUT FASTEST car in the game around some tracks. It went faster than the Entity around Cutting Coroners in a crew event we organized, with a lot of racers trying to get the fastest time over a full week.

It would hold its ground against any car.

You can't handle the carbo if that's the case. I've got 650 wins and 600 losses racing in this game and have tried practically every car in the sports and supers. Its all track dependent. In the grove: elegy might be better than carbo. Dipping In: Carbo would blow away the elegy. Trust me. And if you would sell your zentorno for an elegy had it gone to supers, you wouldn't win any races with competent drivers

Even in Dipping in, where the last 3rd of the track is a straight, the Elegy goes WAY faster.

This is no "would", I know because I've tried. Elegy does 2:12, good luck getting even a 2:14 in a Carbo.

The way I see it, the Elegy can hang with Akumas and Bati 801s.

I don't disagree with you. The Elegy dominates in tracks with a lot of corners. But with Super car tracks they seem to be long straights. Don't think the Elegy can compete here.

 

Here's where I wish we could have a new option in races. Custom Car from Any Class. Then we could test such cars and the Elegy against the Supers on tracks.

Right now we can only do this in Free Roam Improv Races, with traffic.

Haha. Yeah the car is beast. Also depends on the driver.

??? Super car tracks? That doesn't exist.

You can race sports in dumbproof straight tracks or normal ones. You can race supers in dumbproof straight tracks or normal ones.

The car is fine. R35 GTR is a beast on the track, I'm a straight Line it gets the job done here and there. Same way in GTA V. Jester/NSX can keep up with it as with the feltzer, comet, massacro

Back before all the dlc cars the carbo and the 9f were the top competitors

lol

Supercar in real life aren't classed because of their performances, even if in general they are pretty good / fast.
If you call the GTR a supercar in real life, you must take in consideration that other GTA sports car are supercars IRL.

You can race sports in dumbproof straight tracks or normal ones. You can race supers in dumbproof straight tracks or normal ones.

 

Tracks that are tailored to Super cars. Such as Business Trip, Grand Tour, Senora freeway, etc. Here is where I would want to see how the Elegy stacks up against the Supers.

Totally agree with you there.  The Elegy would get smoked on tracks like 'The Commute' or 'Grand Tour.'  Luckily the crew I'm in avoids tracks like that.

Oh god, those tracks?

Whenever I'm racing and we get put into the voting screen, when people see the commute they automatically vote it. Ugh

One highway race I kind of enjoyed was this custom one a friend made. There are jumps and obstacles to avoid once in awhile to keep things interesting and gives people a chance to catch up.
I had no idea about the obstacles but since I have common sense and focus when I race, I avoided them without a problem. Most people will just crash...

Guys guess what?! I heard a homeless man say he played GTA on a Ps4 connected to a PC. Confirmed GTA5 is coming to PS6! Don't forget to thumbs up my video and comment if you want to chime in. Oh, subscribe for weekly confirmations.

On the subject on buffs, the Comet needs a huge buff, or we need a new porsche.

IRL porsche makes some of the fastest cars, and theyre represented in game by a slow 911 that has a mandatory spoiler...

If you have to tune it or add aftermarket parts to get "supercar performance" then it's NOT a supercar, ie the GTR or Hennessy, for example.
