Haven't enjoyed a sports car this much since the Omnis and Tropos. Very grateful that there are designers on the team that also seem to value retro rally/group A/B cars. Don't even mind the recycled engine note! It's taken some getting used to due to that sh*tty new flag that ruins acceleration and rev limit, as well as the suspension quirk and tendency to want to flip... those last two qualities are actually fun though as they only add to the realism of what I imagine a RS200 would handle like. There is a great video of Kenny Block driving his 200 around the canyons in Cali, you should see the dudes face when the turbo kicks in at an inopportune time: abject terror lol..

Until those sh*tty new flags are adjusted, I'll simply be pretending that the acceleration issue in first gear with midrange speed boost is turbo lag. It seems to happen sometimes even when not trying to MRSB..

Man this thing is nifty.. Handles like it's on rails and is a great edition to to the tropos and omnis.

 

More of these and less of the generic supercars

It's pretty detailed too. Turbo V6 in the back, working belts, with correct placement and routing of the turbo piping. Goes up into the roof scoop where the intercooler is on this car. Very cool stuff.

The details are nice, shame they couldn't put the right engine in though. Drives just right for a GTA rally car. Nice liveries aswell. Overall.. good car,good car.

Tried this car out on a few rally tracks I created and I must say I dont always like it. I find it very nose heavy for a mid engined car. As soon as it gets air time, the nose dives down immediately like a huge invisible hand pushes it down. Using the handbrake on tight corners result in huge oversteer, which feels more like the front wheels simply get glued to the surface. It does handle better than a Tropos Rally, but Im not gonna buy one.
Its a darn good ripoff of the original, though. Nice job!

This is such a fun car to drive around in. You can spin around so easily. I read somebody described it as zippy and I think that's the perfect way to describe her. You can also weave through traffic pretty.

Turning it into a buggy is pretty fun as well, I've been driving around FR in passive with it for the last half hour lol

It still feels too "bouncy" , the suspensions are a bit too firm ....

I went up to the second to last suspension option and it feels noticeably better, the competition option is too stiff and prone to flipping and the third option wasn't stiff enough for my tastes. Tuner/off road tires will help too if you're willing to part with the stock wheels.

I went with the second to last suspension option too , and it still felt too stiff IMO ... maybe tuner wheels would help a little bit ...

This car is really jumpy and twitchy. It accelerates really fast for the first gears, and it has this weird fast turning thing going on around with strangely bouncy wheels

 

I like it.

Hi all, I've been a long time admirer of the cars on these forums so decided to join on the community in support of it, so glad to be here. First of I'd like to say how much I love this car the RS200 is one of my most preferred cars of all time and I believe they did an amazing job on it, not unlike the atrocious representation of the Supra they are adding later on; however being this car isn't perfect either I may be just being a bit nit picky but the trailing arms on this car appear to be unevenly loaded so the left arm hangs lower also if anyone has one in a bright color or if you don't just go to los santos customs and scroll to ice white you will notice a little texture dot above the intercooler scoop in the car's color (so as long as you're viewing the car from the rear). Just little things I know but the little annoyances on this car are unfortunate considering the vehicle itself is proportioned and detailed nicely as is the engine bay even thought the block model is questionable and asking for the spare wheel is probably a little too much. Again great car it is as almost completely as good as a representation can get but just a little more care in it and it would be perfect (it's almost there!) Otherwise it is amazing and fun to drive. Thank you all.

Again great car it is as almost completely as good as a representation can get but just a little more care in it and it would be perfect (it's almost there!) I'd honestly just want them to fix the texture above the scoop and the arms and now hopefully the Supra sees adjustments as well because that thing just needs help. Thank you all.

Its really fun to drive this, the only car that can lets you feel some adrenaline.

Though the only thing that bothers me is the unpaintable green safety belts in the interior. Its really f*cking annoying. Rockstar really has to always ruin everything with 1 small thing that could easily be fixed.

gotta be the most atrocious car to drive in the entire game. seeing how people here actually like it and find it fun, i seem to understand why other people find ramming and driving backwards in races funny.

My ability to drive this car and enjoy it, has nothing to do with ramming or driving backwards, I don't do those things but I do enjoy this cars excellent handling.

that is true except if you talk about difficult cars, gb200 and viseris would fall into the realm of artificial difficulty because they have retarded suspension settings. something like the dominator or the mamba would be an actual difficult to drive car.
