Declasse Tampa and Drift Tampa Appreciation Thread

Sounds a bit quiet; I was hoping for a Dominator-style roar.

So is it actually any good? The Nightshade is pretty disappointing performance-wise, is the Tampa any better?

I find it alot better then the nightshade , the NS feels kinda boaty , tampa is alot better , sure its a bit tail happy but thats why its a musclecar , about handling i think you can compare it to a dominator and pheonix

I don't think anybody has an issue with the Nightshades handling, it is actually great handling.

 

By performance we mean its acceleration and top speed.

 

Will it be competitive in races? My guess is the Dominator will still stomp a mudhole in it.

thats because of the supercharger,forced induction dampens the exhaust sounds.

Yeah no. I have never seen any evidence of this in real life. I work on quite a few forced induction cars everyday. It is purely down to the kind of exhaust installed.

 

Try and tell me a Pro Mod/Funny car/Top Fuel car is "quiet".

 

They are just trying to make all the cars sound different. By your logic, adding a turbo in game makes the car quieter, which is not the case at all.

Don't forget the Pinnacle.

 

Arguably the best sedan in Vanilla IV.

 

It's just the best thing since sex.

FTFY :^:

 

Can't argue with that really, while I love the DF8-90 with every fiber of my being. The Pinnacle looks absolutely nice.

Our 91 5.0 has been through 2 different motor combos and 3 boost setups. Had 2 different super chargers but went turbo because the crank would make the belt spin on the sc pulley and we'd lose boost. Ended up getting rid of the turbo because it made the car drasticly more quiet than before. Kind of a shame.

Should have specified I was mainly talking about superchargers when I said forced induction, since apparently the Tampa has supercharger whine.

 

Either way I have heard, as I am sure you have too, really loud cars with turbos/blowers.

 

Edit: Post a pic of the car bro it sounds cool.

I don't want to come off as an asshole, but if you post an appreciation thread too early, you will have the first few pages with no pictures but discussion about the vehicle, which hasn't got anything to do with the thread itself. So I think this thread should be locked once the car actually comes out, or does that usually happen if an appreciation thread is posted too early?

Since when are pictures the only way to appreciate a vehicle? Why is appreciation through discussion less important? Honestly people, this thread isn't hurting anyone, and it gives us a place to build hype for the Tampa while we wait for it. If you're only interested in seeing pictures of it, you can always ignore the thread until the Festive Surprise content is available.

 

If you still want it locked, though, report the first post and let a staff member make the decision. You may find discussion less relevant than pictures, but I think we can all agree that complaints about the thread itself are the least relevant.

I really like the mods and the stance it has.

 

And yeah that pearl bleedover onto the secondary gets me everytime too.

Because when the OP doesn't post a picture of his own, others call him/her out on why he/she hasn't posted one. So that leads me to believe that pictures are a necessity. But then again, it's always best to create an appreciation thread once the car has come out. Those who create an appreciation thread way too early are just treating it like a silly race and are desperate for their thread to become the official appreciation thread.

Looks quite nice...for a muscle car. Looking to see if it can compete with the Nightshade I have, in yellow and black.

I've wanted this since GTA V came out! Hope it has the same handling as in IV.

 

Also - how the hell do people get DLC cars on last gen? I've still got my PS3 and would like to try bringing it to PS4.
