Muscle Car Races

Recommended Posts

For something "Pure America" it looks like it's based on the old Nissan 300 ZX to me... :D

 

You DARE insult the third generation Firebird with that puny mockery?! KITT will find you, and kill you.

 

I race with my Ruiner as well, she's definitely a good drag racer. You have to know how to handle her on turns or else she'll kick your poor ass off the asphalt.

 

 

I prefer my "proper" oldschool Trans Am (Phoenix) Smokey and the Bandit machine, a far more manly vehicle. Well that and my Fall Guy truck (Sandking SWB) - so great crushing the crap out of some retard blocking the spray shop entrance with his Sultan like he's in Fast and Furious or something... :D

i have to agree that the 2nd Gen Firebird looks MUCH more muscly. I just like the Third Gen mostly because I grew up with it. That...and it's the closest I can get to the fourth gen Firebird :(

Aye, I nearly bought one in real life once with the 5.7 V8 but here in the UK it's a tough choice with a big left-hander like that, also the speedo and handbrake didn't work :\ Am quite liking the almost Starsky and Hutch-like Sabre in Red/White in the game, I know it's not a Gran Torino and more like a Chevelle but it's about tied with my Phoenix for coolness. :D

Used to have the Ruiner but prefer the looks of the Gauntlet. Got rid of the Ruiner and got myself a Gauntlet. I win races with both though.

I wish they had a 4th gen so i could copy my 95 trans am. For whoever said the ruiner is a 300zx, there is a license plate frame on it that says "ruining imports since 1967" it's definately based on the third gen firebird and camaro. I wish they would bring back the turbo bulge hood thaf the car had in gta iv that was identical to the one KITT had.

used to race with my Sabre Turbo but then i sold it and get myself a Dominator (haters gonna hate). Never used the Dominator for races, probably will someday if there's a decent muscle race (although i got myself another Sabre as i missed the car), right now its only used for jobs and escaping the cops. I never understand why people hate the Dominator or the Gauntlet, both handles like a muscle should handle, which is almost the same for any other muscle, though the Gauntlet feels grippier than the Dominator, Dominator is a fun car imo,

Wait... there are other races going on besides Supers on "The Commute" or "Criminal Records?" I had no idea. <ugh!>

 

But yes, my Declasse Sabre Turbo takes me back to my youth in the 70's, while the Imponte Ruiner takes me back to those crazy 80's! ;)

My eyes!!!!! Your cars make me want to punch puppies or something...I think you had one too many tab of acid in the "good ol' 70's" my friend.

I think I have only participated in one Muscle car race...but I loved it because it was indeed more of a challenge, and that's when I was sold on using Muscle cars as my PVs. Out of my six-car garage, I have two Sabre Turbos, a Gauntlet and a Buccaneer currently (although I do have a Dubsta for Off-roading and a hardtop Sentinel for anything else I lack).

Also, I just noticed that EyeMacHunt quoted me in his sig. I'm so popular! :D

From le Wiki:

 

"The Ruiner is based on the third generation GM F-Body (seen in the period's Pontiac Firebird, and Chevrolet Camaro)."

 

So, yeah... 'MURICUH.

U think the ruiner looks like a Nissan...lol let me guess, you're about 10 yrs old

Nope, I'm 36, I'm well aware of the cars but I have, you know, eyes?

But you're right, these look 100% completely different. Personally I'd say the ruiner looks more like an original Nissan 300ZX than an 80's Trans Am, I don't care what it's supposed to be based on. :)

again i did not say anyone who drives it is a non driver...i said anyone who is a non driver is driving it or the ford junk. I never dissed the gauntlet i said its an ok car

 

Hey, I totally get you - my car, tho, she's kind of touchy and thinks you were making fun of her. Bonus points if you know where I'm going with this.

 

On another note, are you perchance an Ozzie? I've only encountered such anti-Ford sentiments Down Under on account of the social engineering Holden and Ford have engaged in since day dot - curious to know if it's cropped up anywhere else.

No not an aussie...im 100% american from Missouri , i just grew up around and always worked on GM machines(mostly chevy's) , around here chevy guys don't like ford's for the most part and ford guys dont like chevy's for the most part...always a chevy vs. ford battle either at the local drag strip or one of the many offroad parks

i use a vigero mostly and i win 4/5 races with it. I know this is gonna sound duschy but im most likely better at driving muscle cars than the average joe that just picks "the fastest" car for each class and usually only races supers/sports. Muscle cars are in a whole different league...you have to be pro driver that knows exactly how to handle each one and if you can do this they are all pretty even(aside from the el camino, its pretty much a guaranteed loser). The gauntlet is ok i guess but i prefer the more classic looking muscle cars than the current era ones(vigero/phoenix/sabre, and i refuse to ever step foot inside a ford sh*tstain, i blow them up on sight

Please help me try and rid the gta world of Ford sh*tstains by blowing up/setting a fire to every one you encounter. You would be doing the public a great service.

there is nothing wrong with mustangs!!

they're classics!

My favourite muscle car is the Phoenix, but I also like the Ruiner and the handling of the Gauntlet. I mostly like the Phoenix for its modification options.

 

If any XBOX 360 user wants to race with muscle cars please add me: JoacoBolso is my tag.

 

I also have a new crew that is just starting. Its name is Phoenix Connection, and I'll give a Phoenix or any muscle car to active members as an incentive. It is a good chance to play some muscle car races more easily.

 

Thanks and sorry for my bad english!
