You see, turbo gives you huge power boost. Theoretically it is great (more power=faster car) but it's not that simple. Schafter V12 is a RWD car with lots of power being stock, and if you will give it another huge power boost it will have great acceleration, on paper. Unfortunately Schafter V12 is heavy and at the same time very powerful RWD makes it very easy to do wheelspins (the longer wheelspin=the much time you need for 0-60) and it will be very oversteer car.

In any high power rwd car u can't just dump the gas and expect it to launch cleanly. This is what I mean by u can't have all the power all the time. Using partial throttle u can however get it to hook up, then stand on the gas and get full advantage of the blower.

But that only matters till you get traction. When you get up to a certain speed, you'll see that the turbo is better. You could also do 10 laps on a track with the turbo and without the turbo, if you can even handle the V12.

I'm not sure if this will interest you or has any relevance to what you're discussing, but here you go:

 

 

He talks about turbo and all the other upgraded making you go faster.

Doesn't it ruin that sexy engine sound?

It's not that bad but still better without it

 

Thanks for the clarification, I knew I could hear the sounds changed.

That's why I don't install turbo on sports classic cars like Manana and other cars because turbo ruins their sounds.

 

And I have the schafter V12 too. Sexy cars, nice colorable interior and also a nice car in some stunts maps. Sexy sound too.

Turbo whine sounds appropriate for a tuned monster benzo. They pretty much gave up on naturally aspirated motors for the really hot stuff. Stupid emissions bs...

Exactly.

 

This isn't a racing sim where excessive power without sufficient traction (or traction control) will lead to spinning out on every gear shift. Even if (and if) it impacts launch negatively, you only launch once every race unless you crash, and that first launch problem is mitigated by the launch boost anyway.
