Is it worth buying without owning the MOC?

Do the exterior armor and hood armor do anything at all?  Like...  anything?

I wouldn't, stock only has fixed miniguns and is as weak as a normal car. Kuruma has better armor and I'd rather have the normal in car weapons. When the ardent drops u should get the same guns on a faster, cheaper car. I'm waiting to buy until I unlock the swiveling miniguns, for me the only reason to purchase.

Did R* nerf the armour in the last update?

I'd never had so much as a scratch but now it caught fire in two heist setups from bullets.

I haven't noticed any change in the armor, still very weak to explosions but seems to be alright against bullets (haven't played heists, but this is a monster and so much fun for PVE use, much more fun than armored cars even if you have to be very careful to keep it away from exploding wrecks)

Definitely has an I76 feel to it.

THIS is the reason I want to buy this car. Still waiting forna discount though.

Can anyone tell me if this car have any liveries (besides the gunrunning ones) or secondary color? I really wanted to go for an interstate 76 look but am guessing it isnt possible.

I have a question regarding the Tampas bullet resistance. What does it compare to, and what levels of upgrades make a difference?

How is it vs. bullets to begin with?

Like a regular car.

I like how it looks but something this hardcore looking shouldn't be made of paper. Will probably sell it when I need some cash.

Edit: Fully upgraded this guy. I was incorrect, it takes bullets better than a regular car, but not as well as any armored car. 95% of the time rampaging in it, I die before the car does. Armor plating doesn't do anything but make the car look brutal. Exploding cars don't seem to affect it unless I'm sitting on top of them when they explode; resistant to splash damage perhaps.That dual minigun on this thing is a monster. The reason you buy this over a different Tampa. It's a good bit of fun without it, but with it it's some next level sh*t.

Are you serious? You can have:

Office w/ 60 car garage.
5 separate apt/garages each with 10 spaces.

Thats 110 spaces.

Plus an MC clubhouse that holds 10-12 bikes.

And I think you can have a house too.

^ Yes I am serious.
I have 6 regular garages (10 vehicles each) a clubhouse (10 bikes) and all three offce garages (20 vehicles each), so thats 130 vehicles in total. Im full since march, i had to sell vehicles to get some of the gunrunning stuff (vehicles i actually did not want to sell) and i do not want to sell a single one more. If they would give me a regular 10 car garage it would be full the day it comes out.

Just played with this in the MOC special mission. Disappointed but not surprised it's not such a beast PVP. Is the minigun at least the same level in PVP as it was in the mission, which was just beastly. I'd expect to be able to shred anything less than an Insurgent type vehicle.

Here it is:

Its a great car, perfect for headhunter and hostile takeover and it is also useable for pvp as a light support vehicle.

My question is do you actually drive all 130 of those vehicles?

Since the armor plating is completely cosmetic, I wish they would allow us to completely remove all of it. The armor plating on the hood seriously ruins the awesome paint job I have on it.
