This ride is awesome, haven't tried the Lurcher yet but I can tell this is waaay better!

 

Anyways, the only complaint I have is that we can't change the interior color, I wanted to go with a matte black and flames but it just sucks with purple interior!

I'm loving mine to bits. It's performs above and beyond what I was expecting. I was expecting style over substance like the Lowriders, but this seems to find a decent balance. I ended up losing a Karin Kuruma (Armored) by outmaneuvering it and having more power in the straight lines.

I love this car but it pushed me to my breaking point today when I let some guy drive it on a mission. I told him "Be gentle it's a sports classic it doesn't handle the way a supercar would" What does he do? Just like every other time I've been nice enough to let someone try one of my vehicles or drive it. He stomped the gas and literally smashed into every car.

 

People don't seem to understand that the mechanics in GTA while not being perfect are realistic. I don't care what car your driving in the real world , your not making a 90 degree turn at 120 mph.

 

Especially when I'm being nice enough to let someone cruise in free roam and they just stomp the gas pedal.

 

Done letting people drive my cars.

 

They call the car sh*t the moment they cant turn while red lining the engine. NO sh*t! -_-"

The problem is that in random Contact Missions and random Freemode lobbies, you enter a world where the majority of players are poorly driving a Supercar, Karin Kuruma (Armored), or HVY Insurgent/Pick-Up. Supercars are arguably the easiest cars to drive in the game, yet the majority of those that drive them still can't drive for sh*t. Hence why I was able to easily escape a player trying to shoot and ram me in his Armored Kuruma. Not to mention they're put in a mindset that if it ain't as fast as the Progen T20 or as strong as an armored car, it's the worst car in the game. It's pathetic, I know.

Personally, I like the handling of the Sports Classics and Muscles much better. They just feel more powerful and provide more of a challenge while playing.

Still getting used to it's handling, but it's a lot of fun, and ridiculously cool. Kinda wish it could have a licence plate, so I could pop on a Dragula one.

That only the fastest or strongest mindset is a bit boring. It's nice having a variety of different styles. The vans aren't very fast, but some of my favourite to drive.

 

I particularly like muscle cars too, one of my garages is entirely full of different muscle cars I like, and I'm still missing a couple of awesome ones like the Buccaneer and Hotknife.

^ohhh what does it sound like? I havent gotten a chance to hear one yet!

Best engine sound in the game, no exception. It's all new, at idle it sounds like a big block V8 with a large cam, under throttle it just sounds amazing. I hope rockstar follows this trend and makes more accurate sounding engines from here on out.

The t20 to me really isn't fast. They call me a hacker when i outrun them in a rapid gt.

 

However, muscle cars in general will outrun alot of sports cars. At least that's my experience in gta.

 

I outrun the armored kuramas in my dominantor.

The only bad thing is that the interior is purple.

Dont get me wrong purple is awesome but it limits the colours and combos that would have been interesting, specially in light colors .

 

Unless ofcourse if you ignore the interior but nigga please im not blind and that thing is half convertible.

 

I found myself multiple times getting excited about a diferent color combo like, gasoline green and white or a tone of light desaturated blue with white and so on in this car , and in the end i can't because of the interior

 

Seems like most of the customization we will see will be quite similar in this way :/

 

But nevertheless it is aa sick ride! Im in love with the engine sound and the horn, its perfect!

 

I dont know about how loud other players actually hear this car cuz to me feels like im tearing the streets in half with the massive v8 roar making mini earthquakes every rev :lol:

No money to buy the Lurcher (yet) but I'm really happy with this ride. R* does theme stuff the best and also little things like bobbleheads and horns. One of the best updates since online launched. :)

The car is a beast and hungry for straights. Climbs hills only with the back wheels spinning the whole way...so yeah, it doesn't go far if you keep the throttle down. Cornering is great but seems a little tail happy. The top doesn't come up which is a bit of a bummer as those rainy nights makes the interior wet. Keeping those stock engine pipes is the way to go (I saw the "argument" on the first page) but the other engine visuals are awesome and fit it really well. I took horn loop 2 from the Halloween ones and I'll make the Lurcher a proper Dracula/Drag-ula car, this one more of a Halloween "freaky"...thing. It really fits its name quite well as it's just a mess of parts fit together perfectly. Paint is the darkest purple (metallic) with pearlescent red (secondary also metallic red, making the fenders a darker red). I'm still getting used at taking pics in R* Editor's and I'll just dump them all here.

*edit*
Paintjob is probably the least original seeing a lot of people went with purple...oh well. I like it. Also, anyone who's "on the fence" about this car or the other (which I haven't driven/bought yet): get them! Limited time cars are worth collecting and in the short time I've owned this one, I can only imagine the other one is as amazing as this one is. Lowriders can be bought later. Priority should be buying both cars and upgrading them afterwards. I screwed myself by upgrading this one completely and left with 200K. I'll work my way up to buy the other one and then go from there.

Also did a small clip of it just to get used to the R* Editor and see what I could do. You hear explosions in the back as this was just a quick clip shot in a public lobby (with two tanks nearby) so it's not meant to be perfect. The opportunity to shoot this in a graveyard with this car was too tempting, though.

This thing sounds SWEET! Handling isn't bad either, it's a steal for that price! Way better car than lurcher and that isn't half bad either.

Does turbo charging (biggest) affect exhaust note? I won't do it if it does...

Turbo doesnt change any cars exhaust note. It just adds turbo whine and a blow off valve noise on top of the exhaust sound. If that is your question, then yes I'm sure it adds the turbo sounds.

Thank you, there was a comment somewhere during lowrider update about turbos dampening exhaust note. Never experienced it myself, so was a bit sceptical but hey - what reads in the internet must be true, right?

Glad it doesn't.

Curious to know if some of the mechanics from the real world are in GTA like how alot of people say when you drift you turn the opposite way of where your turning.

 

Or how when you lose control in stuff like rain if you steer into it you'll have a more likely chance of stopping the spin and regaining control.

 

Not sure if i worded those right.

 

Anyone know?

Dang the purple interior, to bad it isn't using the leather interior like the website shows. Base midnight purple with red pearl. Still not to happy with the paint scheme.

That looks sick in that color. Lose the custom tires and it's a 10/10.
