Seriously? How do you live? It's a beater that you fully restored, how about that?

Maybe you're right. Maybe you're not. I dunno. We'll see.

With the new grille options there is actually some Pontiac in it, did anybody built it GTO like?

If the Manana is any faster then I'll definitely have to invest. As long as the wheels don't shrink and become over-cambered, that is...

I was very undecided on this, due to it being all rusty and damaged; but i bought it on a whim. Chuffed you could mod it to be cleaned up, with all new parts! Badass ride.

So you buy a free car and pay additionally to get it fixed up so it looks the free car :thinkingemoji:

This feels like it's as fast as the Duke O' Death, so not much of an improvement performance wise. Not sure about cornering, though. Feels similar to the regular Dukes in that department.

I am pretty certain the engine sound is slightly different than the regular Dukes. Could be just me imagining things though.

 

I definitely think it handles differently.

I heard my boys one yesterday, I thought it had been given the new "V8" engine sound..

As opposed to the old (actually nice sounding) (a-la phoenix/dukes kinda noise) V8.

How disappointing...

Probably my biggest issue with all the newer American cars.. that awful noise.

I haven't driven the original Dukes for a few years, but the Beater (at least in stock form) does seem to have a looser rear end. But it's not uncontrollable like some vehicles have been, so if there are any evil flags then they're pretty tamely implemented. 

 

I'll likely pick one up once it's on sale, or I'll save a few hundred GTA$ and follow FR_Player-One's excellent guide with the original.

Am I the only one who thinks that the Beater Dukes is bullsh*t? Instead of adding more liveries and customization options to the Dukes as it is (like how they finally added liveries and sh*t to the Futo in the After Hours update), they're selling us a completely new Dukes, marked up almost 600%, and the only difference between it and the other Dukes is a few dings and dents?

Not the only difference..

They've replaced the decent engine sound with a sh*t one...

It's weak.. feeble.. sounds underpowered and less like an old V8 than the OG cars.. there's no snarl or burble/grumble, which also drive better than all the new ones. Especially when speed boosting, or dropping the box.. there's a serious lack of character and attitude to these new cars.

 

I have more grumble than the new cars.... When I'm grumbling about them.

Opposed to any of the new cars we have got in the past, call it, 4 years?

More so since the muscle car update.

I can't hide my disappointment with all the cars engines. Some of the models are beautiful, and despite their handling issues, it's the powerplants ( sound and delivery) that make me cringe the most.

 

I think I may pass on this one, and roll around in my Badass OG Dukes. (F1 'ed of course)

Is the normal old dukes fitment fixed as well or just the new one? I am just curious to know how the F1 wheels are going to fit now..

The engine sound is not the same as recent cars like the Gauntlet Classic, etc. 

 

It literally sounds almost the same as the old Dukes but maybe a little more raspy or something. 

 

Idk what you are on about lol.

Nothing changed with the old Dukes.

I think I'll stay with the old Dukes. It drives much better and that's the most important thing for me. I'll post some pictures of Beater later before I sell it. I won't be surprised to find out that Beater is slower than the old Dukes which is embarrassing, IMO.
