Topic says it all. Personally, I just use my favorites and don't ram anyone if I can avoid it. I know its GTA and all, but my thinking is that this isn't Twisted Metal or Burnout, its a race. If I have to ram you off the road to get a win, I didn't really beat you, I just took you out of the equation altogether and might as well be "racing" alone. Of course if someone rams me first then all bets are off if I see that player again. I also don't use custom cars, as I feel it gives an unfair advantage against those without custom cars.

 

What's your thought on this?

I use my fav cars and try to avoid ramming. However if someone rams me then my race goes out the window and I go all out to make sure that person gets a DNF.

 

Oh this is only if they ram me to the point it totally messes me up. If its just a slight touch then I just carry on as normal

I personally hate it when custom cars are off.

 

If players cant afford custom cars then they should not be complaining.

 

I leave race lobbies that have..

 

Catch up on... See ya later newbs.

 

Custom Cars off... f*ck that.

 

1 lap short tack.. Nothing but lame boosters.

 

Traffic in races with more then 8 players OR tight lanes.. No thanks.

 

For me, I use my cars. They are not the fastest but the fastest doesn't always mean the best on certain tracks. I never wipe players out on purpose. But I have been getting really good an counter pit moves.

 

Anytime someone gets besides me and makes even the slightest jerk toward me il counter pit them right out OR flip them over. IF I see someone pit players in front of me il wipe them out the moment I get close.

 

I understand stuff happens.. But players who make aggressive moves to wipe other players go on my sh*t list. I mute them so I can see the X on their name. Its basically a tag for me to wipe them out ASAP.

I race with any car, and i only ram those that try or succeed in ramming me. If people want a clean race and everyone in the lobby abides by that rule, so do i. The last racing session i played we had one idiot who kept driving around the wrong way just because he got rammed in a pile up. He couldn't even manage that properly either.

All I see when I join random races, is people ramming the whole time. Even if they're in the 5th or 7th position, they'll ram, even if they spin out of control too, it's stupid.

Still figuring out my style of racing in terms of speed/handling balance, but I always prefer cleaner races if I can find them. I mostly prefer sports, muscle, motorcycles, and off road class and have a few cars in each that I am slowly working toward unlocking all the modifications.

 

In reality, however, I don't win that much because I usually join random races and there's usually one person with a fully modded car that is good and smokes everyone, meanwhile the people not in first place are busy ramming into one another, including me :/

I cant take destruction derby racers. Funny, a guy joined another player and myself last night while we were doing criminal records. We were lvl 56 and he was lvl 116. On "go" the first thing he did was swerve into me, gain speed on the other player and pit him. I thought ok, ill let that go, as he ran his laps and i listened to him laugh. 2nd race, he did it again. Ok, now im a bit aggravated. 3rd race i hit the brakes as we pulled out got behind him and pitted him, and i let the other player win. By the 6 race it was hilarious hearing him scream and cuss in his mic, calling me a cheater etc. Moral of the story, dont do sh*t you cant handle yourself. Griefers whom cant handle being griefed are the worst!!

 

FYI: He was a HORRIBLE driver in his fancy chrome adder!! Smdh

To be fair, that answers why you race, not how.

I do what it takes to win. Even If that means I have to ram, pit, or whatever... I do it.

Is this The Guy?

I try hold my pace and ride streams really, if someone is on my stream i pull back for like half a second and let them pass (unless its near the end of the race or if i know i can hold onto my lead) and ride their stream right after to take the lead back. Had to many occurrences where i thought i could ride out someone stealing my lead and he ends up spinning me out.

 

I also am quite fond of letting everyone else crash and knock each other around while i just punch it and steal the lead.

 

If im way back i just kick back and go for rp lol

I like racing a voltic to beat the fully custom super cars people have. People call me all sorts of names for pit maneuvers and different tricks. Fact is their car is faster and they lost. Winning is winning no matter what.

There are still people who race clean. I find them every night and always have a good time. Of course there are dirty racers but if you turn into the person that shoots first or rams first so it doesn't happen to you then you have lost something... Just a terrible mindset. I couldn't imagine enjoying the game at all if this is how I felt.

My first priority is winning, second is having a clean race.

I will not intentionally ram into you, but if we're taking a turn at the same time and you don't give me my space, I won't go out of my way NOT to hit you.

Custom vehicles: Off

Catch-up: Off

 

The rest doesn't matter.

 

I use the car that I like overall and ram whoever I want whenever I feel like doing so. If I want to race clean I launch Gran Turismo 5.

I like to race with the Schafter and the Bati 801RR. All that supercar crap I never liked, not in GTAO, not even in NFS. I like to race clean and if you want tot ram, try a GTA race, not a normal one...

I don't ram people. But if they ram me first, I'll make sure that they have a hard time finishing the race. If I'm host, I'll kick those who ram.

I race using my favourite cards for the class (which are usually amongst the fastest) and try not to be too aggressive, unless someone gets aggressive with me in which case anything goes.

I don't intentionally ram people, but I will if provoked.

 

If actually had people slow down to AVOID ramming into me, which I thought was pretty funny :D

 

Funny enough where I actually would slow down and give this guy a chance at passing me.

+1.

 

Although tbh, if I get rammed by someone, I more just make sure I finish in front of them.

I chose "I race with my favourite cars and try not to ram anyone" but need to add a disclaimer!

 

It's true that I do choose my customised Elegy RH8 to race, despite it not being the best racing car but it's the ramming part that I should clarify... I used to ram, because it was lots of fun (for me) until I read the common opinion on the forum that races should be about classic style racing and I understood that. So now I don't ram...mostly. I start every race with the intention of not ramming but I have to say, if I'm racing to the finish line, side by side with another competitor, it's very tempting. :D
