Using vindicator in races, fair or cheap?

Ever since rockstar put kers enable races, my wins in racing reach a high level. I normally see akumas and gargoyles but when I use vindicator in races then I feels bad. The bike is too much for the, meta guys and comes with a ton of hate mail, not my fault everyone uses the easy to drive bikes.

Kers is usable in ALL races now?

 

And nah, i doubt it. Unless a reeeeeeeeeally long straight is coming up, akuma or bati would beat a vindicator any time. Unless the drivers are garbage, lol.

I have beaten enough Vindicators with my Bati. I'd say it's fair game.

You can't use KERS in a race.

 

Edit: It's only available in a stunt race.

Ah, I do rockstar vertified races

Could be glitched.

No other reason to let kers in races too broken.

Depending on the race, your Vindicator would get smoked by a Bati.

lol....what races though ?

against who..the kers is not that great

 

i switch between bati 801 as main, akuma in really close cornerish tracks, ruffian for in the rare case i am put in a sh*tty custom made stunt race, and hakuchou for races with lots of long straights and drag races

I would take the Bati or Akuma over the Vindicator on most tracks, KERS or no.

Ohh so it only works in stunt races? My bad, thought it worked in all races, never tried it.

Vindicator has a very wide turning circle,it's more like a cruiser bike than a race bike.I'd rather use Lectro if I wanted to use a bike with KERS in races.

Ok recalling how a vindicator drives in freeroam...if i would not be able to smoke an equally skilled racer with my bati 801 on cutting coroners i would quit playing interly.

 

Either the op is a great racer only going against chumps or kers is working better in races or this is a lie

Since you are not glitching or anything like that - yes, it's certainly fair.

KERS is good if you need to brake. Most bike races you never brake.

its even more effective for vindicator because poor handling , the motorcycle has to be brake in more corner than lectro ( this tip weakness , is a map that doesn't have much of cornering or no corners , at all )

but downside is the terrible acceleration

Why do people think the Vindicator is faster than the Akuma or Bati? is it a PC thing because on console they destroy it at the airport.

Probably a lot of people who aren't going to admit they didn't know about wheelie speed.

It's completely fair to pick an option you know will lose you the race. It's heavy, understeers, and those kinetics are going to be used twice at the most in races where you're never going to brake to recharge them.

Without using KERS boost, Vindicator is slow. If you use KERS a few times in a race, you will lose much speed by using a brake or a deceleration. Bati, Hakuchou and Akuma will be much better than Vindicator for bike races. Perhaps a fully upgraded Vindicator will be better than other stock bikes.

Ehhh....It performs GREAT on flat ground, but has the worst tendency of any bike I have to refuse to mount something with a wheelie, and likes to bounce after ramps on stunt tracks. I can only imagine it being really f*cky otherwise. I sold mine hella quick after it just kept trying to bend me over. But then, it might just be me.

I would chalk it up to personal taste. The BF400 really is a bit bouncy, but you can actually use that for nice bonus bumps. Just yesterday a couple of crewmates and me had a little bit of fun with our BF400s in the Vinewood Hills area and we ended up jumping from roof to roof to roof for hours. I guess the slaters are working extra shifts the next couple of days. ;)

I think they just let you win because they saw how ugly those vintage white walls looked on your sportsbike.
