Whats the point in all the car mods?

Recommended Posts

css_matt

They either do nothing (aesthetics) or the same thing (acceleration & brake)

 

 

On my muscle car there is literally no point in doing anything apart from sticking a turbo on it as that maxes out the acceleration, it makes all the engine upgrades and other mods pointless. This isnt very unique and everyone ends up having the same things.

I like the fact that there are a lot of customizations. I agree that they should do more though.

 

For example, replacing your hood and roof with should make your car lighter, giving you a higher top speed and more efficient braking power.

What bugs me the most is NONE of the mods increase top speed. Trans, engine & turbo especially should increase top speed. Other then that, as in real life, i enjoy the cosmetic mods & making something which is unique.

They do if the custom settings are on (by default they are on)

 

Unless this just allows custom looking mods?

I aint gonna lie. The car upgrades are a disappointment in this game. The only stat that changes is acceleration

I agree with this.

 

They added mods but the mods are quite sub-par in terms of their effect!

 

A Turbo charger on a fully upgraded engine with lowered suspension and exhaust system should be wheel spinning all over the place! Top speed should be sigificanly increased as well as the change in sound!

 

I also am unhappy to see the Subaru rip-off, "Sultan" a rear wheel drive (for some reason non-standard turbo even though it says 3.5L Turbo on the rear) non turbo quiet piece of sh*t. This thing should be rumbling with its boxer engine sound with a Fat exhaust out the back getting excellent traction from its all wheel drive system.

Turbo gives full acceleration in the mod shop,but I've noticed it doesn't do the same thing in races. The acceleration bar isn't full,but it isn't stock either. Try having engine upgrades and such and compare it,you'll notice a difference :D

 

And my bati 801 is tuned too,and I've not lost a single race. Surely it makes a difference,since I'm always ahead of others by miles :p

Lol yeah I know but come on man - Each system mod should give a benfit. Lowered suspension should give better handling - AWD, RWD and FWD should exist even though the last two DO exist!

Does anyone remember when R* said that you can add modifications to cars, but you have to be careful that putting too much in could be bad too? (or something to that effect lol)

 

Has anyone noticed any performace issues with just maxing everything out on any car? I sure haven't

I love all the aesthetic mods. I like how they are locked to a higher level too. In the Single Player I'd drive the car into LS Customs spam all the buttons and 30 seconds, I'd have a fully modded car. Meaningless. In MP however, getting that new spoiler, respray or hood is a big deal and it feels like an achievement when you roll out of the shop. I can not wait to fit the big engine block to my Sabre Turbo, its just aesthetic but looks awesome. Couple things you may not have noticed are that the exhaust and engine upgrades actually make the car sound much much better.

 

I was disappointed at the lack of wheel stands in Muscle cars. Especially as the Wheelie bar is an available upgrade. If you don't know what a wheel stand is, youtube it. Its something else!

I think it's bullsh*t that car colors need to be unlocked, and that some of them cost about 10 times as much as another color.

 

 

What's the f*cking point?

the sultan is 4WD, if you hold brake and accelerater, it only spins the back wheels, i know, but it has some power through the front. try it and see, it handles like a 4WD

 

same with the Elegy

 

also, lowering the suspension improves body roll a bit, makes the cars respond faster to steering input in a slide. Try it and see. I was skeptical but that is what II found
