Amazing. I can't believe they actually added it. Getting one soon as possible.

Only issue- Sidepipe exhausts aren't available. So your Vice City flamethrowing lead sled can never be complete.

So it seems bags are a new addition for multiple vehicles with this update then? The C10(Yosemite) has them as well as this. Are they functionally any different than hydraulics? I'd assume they don't allow bouncing, but still allow for raising and lowering of the vehicles.

In fact, I'm going to make mine emulate the Holden 2005 concept. 

 

Again, we NEED benny's white walls for normal cars  :(

I kind of asked that in Sams (yosemite) thread. I wonder is there a vehicle option to raise them when parked so as to show off.

As for Hydrolics they don't serve the same function beyond both being for stancing the car. Bags don't have the reach of Hydrocilcs for a start. They are largely used in place of shocks for a smoother ride. Advanced systems can be used as a variable damper to stiffen and soften a ride on the fly. Trick bags are basically variable dampers used for small height adjustment. One of the first to use 'bags' (actual hydro pneumatics via piston dampers similar to lowriders) was citroen in their DS. The car dropped when parked and engine turned off, and could be raised (and balanced) so you coud change a wheel (or drive on three wheels). Citroen effectively started both the airbag and hydrolics craze without trying.

closest we have are the lowrider wheels and I fear they may be too small.

 

I might emulate the Hot Wheels cars So Fine (customised Mercury) or Fish 'n' Chipped (based of the Jag Mk 10)

 

Wonder who'se going to try for Cobra's car?

Do we know the Hermes' performance stats yet, or are all the mods we're seeing just using the stats of other cars they're taking the place of?

The taillights are much better looking than every year of it's RL countpart.

 

It's different from VS & SA taillights, which where two horizontal lines.

First let me say I love all of the new cars, but I think the airbags should be toggleable like lowrider hydraulics. Most of the time I would just like to drive around my yosemite as a regular looking truck but have the iption to have it slmammed and barely movable, but if you spin out on a curb it can really screw you over since you have no control.

I can do requests if anyone wants 'em. Weird that this doesn't appear to have any hood mods though, I would think a big blower would be a must have on a hot rod like this. Beautiful car though, a lot of nice mods to fit certain looks.

A lot like it, but the livery is only available rusted :/ You could always go for a barn-find look, I suppose.
