'Fastest car in the game' is getting ridiculous

Recommended Posts

Fireboy769

So far in every update since Executives, there's always one car that takes the 'fastest car' spotlight. And sooner or later, everyone's using that car until the next one. And you HAVE to shell out $2.1 million+ dollars for that new fancy car or truck or whatever, because if you don't, that's it. You can't do competitive racing. I mean, look at what we have:

 

Base Game: Ztype (in a straight line)

After IGG: T20

Executives: Schafter V12 Armored

January: Banshee 900r

Lowriders Custom Classics: Slamvan Custom

Finance and Felony Base: FMJ

Finance and Felony After: Pfister 811

Cunning Stunts: I don't really know this but I'm pretty sure it's the $2,600,000 one

 

Pretty ridiculous if you ask me. It's getting to the point that whenever a new update drops, I see a whole bunch of people not just on the forums, but everywhere (Social Club, YouTube, Se7ensins, Reddit, Facebook for some reason), asking about 'What's the new fastest car?'

 

Note: This is not a B&M Topic, as it is addressing a current problem happening so far in game

What exactly is your point? People will always want the best.

 

Do you run the alleyways during PAC standard finale with no armor and the starting pistol?

It's now "use the RE-7B for everything or go home", at least on PC. Yes, even for high-speed races - the RE-7B demolishes the 811.

 

Tyrus and ETR1 may be able to keep up on corner-heavy tracks, but they're hopeless against the RE-7B on long straights.

I see your point op. Honestly it comes down to the driver at the end of the day. What's the point of having the fastest car if your not gonna come in 1st? Let alone even place?

The fastest car isn't a concern for all of us.

 

I pick my cars based on whether I like them or not.

Because it's not like car manufacturers in real life consistently release faster and more expensive car models.

Fastest car doesn't mean good driver, either up your driving skills, spend the money you don't want to spend so you can compete, or goto the bitch n moan thread lol

Quoted because you have internets best nickname.

I understand OPs view, but then again adding only slower cars to the game would make little sense, if any. People want their new stuff to be better than old, it is understandable. Personally i dont mind a tenth here or there in lap times, a GTA race isn't usually civil enough. You cant use cars to their full potential, so that you could squeeze to the inside in hard braking, or cut late to the apex to get more speed to the next straight. At least not as dependably as in real life or simulations.

Because people race, and in races, people want to win, simple as that. I really don't give a f*ck about how it performs since I mainly play on freeroam

I fail to see the issue.

I don't think his issue is with the cars itself. It's more the "herd of stampeding sheep" mentality...

Your list was false though. T20 is faster than any of those cars around a track until the X80

I thought his issue was with the the high (and escalating) costs of "the fastest" cars.

Or that perceived masses want whatever can go in a straight line the fastest, as opposed to what could complete a given circuit the fastest.

Or that people are asking instead of testing for themselves.

 

I can answer the last one: not everyone has modded billions and since Rockstar made the d*ck-move of not adding new cars to story mode anymore, so instead of dropping millions into a car that is significantly slower than other cars in the same class (since we lose 60% of what it cost when sold), players ask those that do have money to blow on such things to test them all out and give results.

 

For some players, that's all they want to know and buy stuff; but others (like me) want to know but will take that into consideration along with outer factors (appearance, handling, recover-from-loss-of-control ability, weight and collision stability, low body that hits curbs, etc.) when considering a new car. Broghy (sp) is a source of data to me, like getting the millage estimates from the EPA when shopping for a new car. I'm not going to rent the car and drive it for a few hundred miles to get my own milage results before buying.

 

In this subforum I asked what the "best" Sports-class car is now as I only have a non-racing Jester and there are a bunch of new cars in that class. I'm not going to buy 'em all and test them myself when I can ask others that have already done that. If the consensus is "car X" with "car Y" or "car Z" as a close second, then I'll look at styling, handling, and even mod options to decide what, if any, I will buy.

He's talking about top speed. Not track time.

Having better things makes people think that they're superior. Kind of pointless for me since I like cars based on looks, not solely on performance. The car I drive the most?.. the Emperor. And god knows no races will be won with it.

No, still stuck on ps3 :p I have won a couple races with it, but I was just making a point that some people don't buy a car just because of speed.

Glad they came out with something better than the X80 quickly. The RE-7B isn't a work of art, but a least it's not an embarrassment.

Re-7B is what it is for the reason it was made. It is a Le Mans Group C racecar and it looks amazing. And atleast on PC(being bugged)i think it should beat everything considering in real life it would.

Don't really get the problem people have with how cars look. They are build to look a way for a reason (atleast racing cars).

It is rockstar's fault for putting them with normal street legal cars.

Ok, 130, hardly 140mph. I'm talking about real speed, not what is shown on dashboard, because that speed is wrong. Plus just their way to say "that car is faster: 120mph vs 125mph". Nothing like, a 250kph sport car vs a 350kph super car.

 

Let cars have their real speed....gosh...a Bugatti Veyron based car that can't do at least 300kph...a Porsche 918-based that can't reach 300kph too. That's stupid.

People who race always want faster cars. I'm glad we're getting things that live up to the hype, as long as the frame rate can handle it.

 

As much as I love my Banshee 900R, I was bitterly disappointed the first time I did the Highest Speed Challenge in it. On a flat surface it was barely getting past 135mph, like almost every other vehicle in the game, I had to find a long straight slope just to get it past 145mph. Personally I think R* owes us some seriously fast cars after bullshi**ing us for so long about how fast these cars are supposed to go.

 

Entity XF - 240mph

Adder - 250mph

 

How many owners of these two cars have gotten anywhere near that speed? None, that's how many. On a flat surface even Adder owners were lucky if they broke 150mph.

 

Bring on faster and faster vehicles I say. As long as the game can handle it without fu*king up in a full session/lobby I'm all in favour of it.
