GTA: San Andreas Vehicle Speeds FAQ

=================(1) Introduction=================

 

Welcome to the GTA: San Andreas Vehicle Speeds FAQ. This FAQ will inform you of

the realative speeds of each and every land vehicle in San Andreas. I decided

to conduct this test to end the continuous speculation on gaming boards about

which vehicle was the quickest. Testing nearly 150 vehicles is not an easy

process, and it took me a while to find and test them all, but now that it's

finished, I'm glad I did.

 

 

=================(2) How I did it=================

 

OK, this is how it went. I chose a method that would eliminate human error and

reaction times as much as possible. When I found the vehicle, I took it to the

SF Airport, and lined it up (using first person view) so that the front of the

car was in line with the second closest lamp post to the water's edge. I then

pressed down X and held it for the entirety of the test. When the vehicle

reached the beginning of the runway, I started the stopwatch. I stopped the

watch when it reached the end of the runway.

 

I deliberately chose not to use the in-game clock for two reasons.

1) It does not go up in exact seconds

2) It does not include fractions of seconds

 

=================(3) Vehicles I did not test======

 

I tested all the land vehicles (except bicycles) in SA. So the vehicles I did

not test are as follows:

 

> LSPD/LVPD Police Cars - I doubt that they are programmed to perform

differently to the SFPD Police Car which I did test.

> Planes, Boats and Helicopters - They are not land vehicles.

> Bicycles - They do not have engines.

 

=================(4) Results======================

 

So, after extensive driving up and down the runway, here are the results.

 

Now it is important to consider that, despite my best efforts to eliminate

human error and reaction times, the results will not be 100% clear cut.

For example, I may have started/stopped the stopwatch a few hundredths of a

second too late or early at the end of the test, and as you will see in the

results, the middle of the pack is very tight, with several times shared by

more than one vehicle. Because of this, you must realise when reading the

results that if they were re-tested, they may get slightly different times, and

threrefore be in slightly different positions. However, don't start thinking

that this test is completely inaccurate. As I stated before, the margin of

error is minimal, and I am confident that the results are as accuarte as is

possible.

=================(5) Credits======================

The majority of the work above was conducted by myself. However, I would like

to thank all the posters at the GTA board of ign.com for their support during

the tests. Had it not been for them, I would probably not have carried through

with this.

 

Credit goes to hdhg for testing the Bus, as I was unable to find one myself.

 

=================(6) Outro========================

Thanks for reading this, feedback is always welcome.

 

You can contact me via e-mail ([email protected]), MSN (same address),

or at the GTA board of www.ign.com

 

You are free to use any part, or the entriety of this FAQ in other sites or on

In conclusion... there should be a race on mowers suicidal.gif

I have seen this before. However, the problem is it cannot be 100% accurate, although it is a pretty good thing to show to someone who thinks the Bullet is the fastest car etc....

Exactly. Fine for comparing fast cars, medium paced cars and slow ones... but when we're talking about split seconds between the fastest cars, it's just not accurate enough. confused.gif

 

Good effort though.

Concerning handling.cfg: Top speed is not the true top speed. Many other factors will effect the top speed like size, weight, etc.

 

You could easily script something using the mission script that places each car absolutely perfectly in place and measures speed to a thousandth of a second with ease. You could even get an actor to drive for you, so no input is required from the player at all. This would be the best way to test it.

I'm not sure he did, he probably didn't, he should have added 0.2 seconds to all the time because it takes at least 0.2 seconds for a human to react to something expected.

I always prefer Comets. I have no idea why, they are not extremely fast, but I don't have a problem turning with them.

Did he tuck while on the bikes? If he didn't tuck, he didn't perform to the bikes' potential.

 

I would think that the NRG and FCR would have ranked higher, but if he did actually tuck, I guess the two wheels adds to the illusion of speed.

I really wish someone would do official time trial tests using an uphill course.

The turismo might not be the fastest car but it always gives me the feeling of being the fastest, especially with nitros on.

yea the turismo looks so fast. You can tuck by leaning forward ever so slightly it's hard and sometimes you'll stand up but it makes you go faster

It would be more accurate if someone used a speedometer with PC. Then it would show the true top speed of each car instead of just times. confused.gif

i dont know if it's true for them all, but the speedometer i have tops out at 179. Even a nosedive in a jumpjet said 179.

Rather than having human error you should use computer error or something like that... IE Shoot a video of it... I wouldn't suggest runing a prog in the background because ya know that would really slow her down... but maybe a webcam?

 

That way you would have

 

Exact Times

Possibly Top Speed (with spedo)

No Hard Drive Space.

 

 

Good idea ? heh Shoot me if I am wrong...
