I'm lost. I spend almost a million dollars customizing my Pegassi Infurnus. So I decide to try it out on the highway. It feels like I'm going 80 MPH. WTF. It feels so slow. It's like Rockstar doesn't know what fast means. Go play Need for Speed Prostreet and go into a speed race with a fast car. Going 230 MPH in that game actually feels fast. Upgrading brakes had a reason. There's is pretty much no excitement to driving in this game. Oh turn the left stick on your controller. It's like you're on rails. The game says you're going 140 MPH (worst speed cap ever) but it feels like 50 MPH. Driving at max speed (which is slow) is boring. :yawn:

you might have that once in awhile glitch where your car gets locked into 2nd gear, just reset the game

testing it on the highway doesnt really show speed because when you are going fast there is no risk. if you actually want to see and feel the speed do it on a tight road and take some corners

I've been wanting to make a post about this for ages, it's so f'cking annoying and no one I've talked to has experienced it.

True dat. 

Even the Adder feels slow when driving it at the airport runway, but feels a whole lot faster when you take it into the city.

Don't feel bad, back during the hacked billions days, I tried every car under the sun, and my highest speed online is 147 in a Rapid GT.

That's because the roads are shorter. You get there sooner than on a highway. It just sucks that there's no fun in driving.

I think it's a nuisance when a 250mph rated vehicle (Adder/ Veyron) is only "just" passing the AI vehicles on the highway.

Driving is fun - if you're not driving a brick on wheels.

Try out the Cheetah, you'd be such a cheetah in races that people would accuse you of being a cheetah!

150 is the max speed for online. That's as fast as can be supported with 16 players.

My top speed is 160.54 in an Infernus... 

I think it's a nuisance when a 250mph rated vehicle (Adder/ Veyron) is only "just" passing the AI vehicles on the highway. 

Oh ya it's great. Nothing funner than being at max speed in a super and not being able to dodge n weave through traffic....

That's why you DON'T test a car in single player, as they are way faster in SP than in Online where they are capped because of the world not loading fast enough. If you have ever stolen a car with nitrous from a player you will know about this.

They are not that much faster in single player so it is still worth doing unless you want to waste a heap of cash so you've got something to moan about.

The speed cap in MP is 240kmh (150 mph)

every gta is ran on the metric system FYI

all cars have scaled down speed

 

back in SA I've had cars go 320kmh (200+ mph) with realistic handling tweaks

at that speed, motion blur was so much, you had to be lucky not to crash into stuff, even on a long highway, where cars actually went 70-80 (not like in V where they go like 40-60)

Because you can go above it by slipstreaming and other methods.

A few months back, right after the business update, there was a dude riding his bike around my apartment. He seemed to be trying to do bunny hops over ai cars so I honked and flashed my lights signifying my peaceful intentions. Drove up to him at a slow speed a couple times so he could hop over the car and then started building up speed after a few "rehearsals". 

Did some cool hand brake turns with him hopping over me, some reverse J turns, etc etc. Even had a few people in the map with us put down their guns and take in the show! 

 

That was fun.

first thing first...

how do you spend a million customizing a car?

that "million" you spend customizing that sh*tty car should have gone to actually buying a fast car.
