Finally one on something that isn't an adversary mode!

Righty-o, we've got a new game mode, Transform Races. Players hit certain checkpoints to transform into a completely different vehicle class.

Not much else to say really. As the title states, what are your thoughts on Transform Races?

Bring da noize fellas!

Simple poll too :p

They're alright I guess.

Would rather see some new missions/heist-like stuff than all these new game modes/adversary modes but hey, it's R*

I'm stuck at work so I hadn't the chance to play them yet.

 

I really enjoyed the Stuntraces, but I disliked the special vehicle circut - idk how to feel about this now.

Haven't tried yet. They should've released a vehicle.

 

Kind of biased against them now, for their part in delaying His arrival. But they sound fun I guess, and I'll probably try them some time.

I haven't been a fan of stunt races to begin with, something like that doesn't belong in GTA Online, was always my point of view.

That said I don't mean that these activites are completely without merit, they're nicely executed, but I always thought they'd belong in a different game. I tried them out and the transform feature puts a nice twist on the already established metagame, something fresh is always appreciated.

That said after a couple of wins I'll probably move on to the actual game.

It's a gimmick and I can't help thinking that it would have been more productive and more enjoyable and beneficial for players and the game itself if that time would have been invested in working on the actual main game.

Only played one race but I'm loving it so far. It's really fun, but the payouts are just laughable.

$37k for 5 mins is far from laughable.
Even $15k for 5 mins (third place) is on par with other game modes - it's certainly better than pay out for coming third in any adversary mode.

Compare it to a capture, they pay $10,000 for a 7.5 minute round for the winner and $5,000 for the loser.

Pay is on par with other game modes.

Not my thing. Never did like anything race related in the game because of its on-rail vehicle physics and no damage. So nothing has any consequences making it boring.

They're alright, not going to dominate my play time.

It's fun finally setting WRs to get that elusive Racing Blonde.

Randoms just don't have the custom vehicles, I just won Vinewood Thrills by over a minute, I'm nowhere near that good!

I'll farm the wins and cash while it's still a novelty.

Yeah you can race and set records solo.

Why do people wanna play them solo?

Can anyone confirm if Custom vehicles is active through the whole race or only from start to first checkpoint?

It'll switch you to your custom car if you own one of the type the checkpoint switches to.

I played these in the release week of SR on PC and man are they versitile! IDC much for being able to change to boats or aircraft, but we can race previously unraceable vehicles with it like cop cars but also do multi class racing.

For example you wanna do a Coquette festival with BlackFin (Muscle), Classic (Sports Classics)and regular Coquette (Sports)? Place 2 secondary checkpoints away from the circuit to the two other cars and your set! Done this on PC to rally the Retinue and Sultan RS against the sports class rally cars. ;)

The latter is only possible if they enabled them in thd creator already.

Played a few races, I'm not usually ones who complains much, but these races sure are boring. Especially when you have to "race" with trucks or bycicles

 

I liked normal stunt races, but this is just some reused stuff which is claimed as an "update"

Personally I like to get familiar with the track before a competitive race. Also with these races I want to check if I have the custom vehicles, I'm not getting into a customs race and being stuck with a stock car.

I think R can kiss my white ass.

This was my first and only transform race.

The same thing happened in the second lap and ultimately cost me the win.

I really like them so far. The transform checkpoints sucks sometimes a couple of times I have flown through them perfectly and transformed in to a car and instantly blown up and once I flew through it perfectly and missed the checkpoint with the but still managed 2nd.
