Why isn't R* making actual lowriders into lowriders?

Recommended Posts

justinlynch3

- Peyote.

- Manana.

- Emperor.

- Virgo (the old one).

 

I mean they've made a few lowriders, the Chino, new Virgo, and the Voodoo. But what's with putting lowriders upgrades on Vans and Muscle cars like the Buccaneer, Faction, Sabre, etc?

 

I don't mind Muscle cars in Benny's but they should have their own specialty mods, R* didn't put hydro's on the Banshee 900R and Sultan RS, those two was turned into race cars. Likewise Muscle cars should NOT have lowrider mods, they should have bad-ass dragster style mods.

 

I love the Slamvan mods but I'm not 100% on that either. I feel that should be a Rat-Rod type vehicle over a lowrider.

 

 

I suppose the Vans are OK though I rather see actual lowriders get added to become lowriders. But why Muscle cars and Rat-Rods? They should have their own specialty mods same as the race cars, not lowrider mods. In my opinion.

What?

 

The Faction and Buccaneer are based on cars that are literally some of the most well known lowriders in history, the Buick Riviera and GM G body cars. Astro vans are also incredibly popular to be turned into lowriders.

 

The Slamvan IS a rat rod. Nothing about that truck is lowrider aside from the hydraulics, and even then, early 50s trucks are popular lowriders as well.

 

The Sabre is somewhat debatable, but there are plenty of lowriders out there made from late 60's olds and chevelles.

Lowriders literally ARE muscle cars that have been modified. They always have been.

Yes it is quite baffling. The cars you listed, being actual worthy of the "low-rider" title are the only ones i am waiting for and i was very enthusiastic initially when i heard the the "Virgo" would be getting the Benny treatment. Alas, it was not the Albany Virgo but the Dundreary Virgo, which in itself i find discouraging as having 2 different cars with the same name would seem a future problem if R* ever did to give the Albany version an upgrade.

Well I guess R* decision is based in reality then. I still rather see Muscle cars have dragster style upgrades over lowrider hydraulics, however.

The Peyote is probably coming at some point, based on the model with unique mods in Benny's, so you can probably check that off your list, but last I checked, the lowriders we have are realistically picked. The drag car idea sounds rad as hell, though.

I rather have some more race cars first.

propper race cars this time...faster then supers....dont even care if they woud put them in an seperate class, they deformate like a surrano with no armor and they blow up if you crash them at 50 miles per hour at a solid object

Hell....i woud love it...

Add top speed of the hakuchou, traction of the entity, handling of the infernus, acceleration to top speed of the voltic and we woud get realy interesting cars

I agree except lowriders aren't always just muscle cars, they're often luxury cars too from Lincoln or Cadillac. Family sedans like the chevy caprice or impala are common too from what i know.

The biggest shocker of them all is the blade. I mean the Blade and Voodoo were the 2 most used lowriders in SA and yet the blade on GTAO is not a lowrider yet

That's because the GTAV Blade is a completely different car.

While I would definitely prefer Tornado, Peyote, Manana, Emperor, IGG Virgo, Marbelle, GTA 4 Sabre, Esperanto, Picador and maybe Stanier as lowriders instead of stuff like Minivan or Moonbeam,I'm still happy with most Benny's cars so far.Hopefully they will give us different styles of customization for the same cars (Sabre Turbo and Buccaneer as lowriders or as drag racers,for example),like they did with Faction being either a lowrider or a donk.

Use common sense, folks. The obvious reason they have done assorted cars is to try to appeal to a broader cross-section of players. Don't like the traditional boat lowriders? Well, make a Sabre Turbo into one. Or a minivan. Etc. It takes a lot of work (presumably) to make all the parts and liveries for these, and we only have a limited number of them so far (9 plus the two racers), so they took a scattershot approach and diversified the look and feel of those nine as much as possible, while still basing them on cars that show up modded this way in real life. If they had only given us the Tornado, Voodoo, Emperor, Chino, Peyote, and Virgo, you'd have a different group of people (probably a larger one) complaining that all the lowriders look alike and they don't want to buy any car that looks like that.

 

I hope they all get added eventually (got a Peyote in storage that is already a beauty, but would benefit from a Benny's custom interior and wheels). But it makes sense that they would back-burner some of the more obvious cars for now, and put in more different kinds of cars.

 

As for the Buccaneer, like someone else said, that IS a classic lowrider. It presents differently with the top on, which makes it have more of a hotrod/muscle look, but with the top removed and the Benny's upgrade, that is 100% pure lowrider goodness.

Yeah the Buccaneer is definitely long/wide enough to be a lowrider, and certainly looks the part once you lose that stance; it reminds me of how the 65 Impala took on what would become the typical 70s muscle car shape, yet still remained a very large car. The Sabre Turbo, on the other hand, is based on later muscles, and just doesn't seem big enough.

Carrots to entice us horses for later updates.

 

Meanwhile, we're to happily chew on their Adversary Mode crap cuds and drip-fed Lowriders Part 1 of 82 2 of 82 3.61a of 82.

 

And we will like it. Or else they'll tweak the tunables to create more havoc.

 

R* daily objective completed.

The community begged for lowriders. Got them. The community begged for yachts. Got them. The community begged for an additional property. Got them again and again and again.

 

I'm amazed at how entitled this generation of gamers acts. I'm not even a Rockstar fanboy, this is the first game by them that I keep coming back to. But the fact is, they listen better than a LOT of companies.

 

Some of you people remind me of the spoiled teenager that demanded a car for their birthday and then threw a fit when they got a Range Rover instead of a Cayenne

Personally I'd rather they made helicopters low riders, but that's just me.

 

But yeah, I guess it doesn't make sense.
