As a crew we occasionally do Big Rif impromptu races, with trailers of course, usually start on the highway then turn onto tighter streets or even off road.

 

It's always been an amazing laugh to do

I think they can be modded a bit with the editor for sp( cosmetic & performance), not completely sure. still though.. not entirely out of reach.

I think it's a really good idea, I really like racing in GTA Online and this could be a new challenge.

I voted yes but trucks can't enter LSC. And vanilla trucks are too slow to be fun on races IMO.

 

And the sadest side of this idea is that most of race hosts choose sports and supercars. Others are so rare that I highly doubt to see much truck races anyway.

Yes, and KEEP the trailers.

 

If you've never seen trailer racing... you're missing out. Throw big rigs and 60 foot long trailers into it and well... entertaining stuff.

Truck&trailer racing would be freakin sweet.

I never thought of truck racing, but it would be a great addition.

Heck, foot races would be interesting, too.

Not sure if people recall the GTA 4 multiplayer Point A to Point B races that started out on foot... classic! ;)

The best thing about semis is their actually life like weight, cause you gotta have skills to make the corners, cant just speed through them like with all cars. Also ped cars wont f*ck up your chances completely of winning, they only just slow you so its more of a small speed penalty to hit sh*t when you drive sloppy.

 

They might even be the closest thing we have to monster trucks in a sense of that you dont wanna be driving in front of them bitches.

Check this, impromtu races really aren't useless

 

Badass, the race was slow but neck and neck the whole time, the slightest f*ckup hitting traffic and you'll lose your lead.

Truck racing in IV was always a fun change from the norm.

 

I also miss the those free races. If you make a custom GTA race that starts on bikes you can kind of build one. Unfortunately if someone dies they respawn back at the start.

This has been a big gripe for me since the game came out. How do you let people own tanks but not a Semi, (regular size)dump truck, or even the truck with the work bed that is still a pickup truck? Jockeying a trailer through town is tons of fun, just have a couple of people grab trucks with trailers and start an impromptu race. Would be funnier with moded rigs though. Yes give us industrial trucks and the ability to mod and keep.

Solo or co-op trucking missions! Getting cargo to a location on time or undamaged like in the SA missions. Brilliant stuff.

Lots of GTA V players could benefit from doing the truck missions where you had to deliver the goods with as little as damage as possible, as well as the City Slickin' course from the San Fierro driving school.

 

Driving skills aside, YES, TRUCKS. I really think that if you can enter a vehicle, you should be able to store it (stolen or bought, I couldn't care less), customize and RACE it. Every single vehicle in the game, really. From sportscars to dockloaders to rhino tanks and faggio;s. Everything should be storable, customizable and....race-able...

 

Not a word I guess, but whatever.

Trucks would be fun, I would like to see an open class where you could race anything. Would make for some funny crew races.

I can confirm performance mods do get applied like turbo, transmission and engine upgrades, but suspension and wheels didn't change.

Bulletproofs work and so does 100% Armor, as does tinted windows, the musical horn and that's about it.

 

Back when I could get the sp to mp to work I used to bring in a bunch of em for my friends to play about in and we did drag racing and stuff

 

It just strikes me as something that would be so easy to put into place, like I said, call Pegasus for our custom truck, or maybe even old Beeker himself (haha)

I've done a couple impromptu races with fully loaded 18 wheelers before, and it was a blast. Seeing who could power through traffic, seeing who dropped their load first (called a chicken the rest of the game), and blasting our big truck horns together.... it was magic. So yes, I'm all for this. And please also add Ambulances, Firetrucks, and everything else, please... even if we can't own them.

2 things need to happen

 

1) Trucks are not vans R*, class the vehicles right.

2) Add truck, van, and commerical racing.

 

Now some of you ae thinking "comerical, why, that's like semi's and stuff", but, semi truck racing is a real life thing and I think it would be awesome to include. After all I rather race a semi then anything in the utility class. A lawn mower... really? A golf cart, Faggio, and Fieldmaster.... yep. 2 minute race would take you a hour in these things. lol

I'd prefer older racing trucks/lightly modified trucks:

But these would be interesting too:

They would use the semi's in the game already, and there are a good list of commerical trucks.

 

- 2 big nose semi's.

- flat front semi.

- Good 3 or 4 types of dump truck.

- Cement truck.

 

Hell if we wanted there is like 4 types of buses as well.

 

 

So there is no shortage for a "commerical" race class.

I would love to own and customize a big rig. Honestly I think the Saints Row garage system would be better for online imo.

The system was awesome because you could store any vehicle. Wish it was like that in this game.

Mein gott. Just imagine a 16 Truck race from one end of the map to the other! Keep the trailers and you have a bunch of them slapping onto each other wreaking havoc on the highway!
