Comet Retro Custom Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

Would have been smarter to just give us a stock Comet Retro then the ability to upgrade via Benny's to a Comet Retro Custom. Still going to nab myself one but just another missed opportunity much like the Omnis & Tyrus.

You'd think they would have learned from how upset players were there were no stock versions of those cars, just unliveried ones.

Another missed opportunity was the ETR though, without the bodykit that thing would just close enough to LFA to be lovable

I do hope the upside of there being no regular comet retro right now is that if they do add one, that car is a Benny's car as well, somehow.

The best solution would have been if they gave us the current Comet with Benny upgrade. The new Comet Retro as standard version and Bennys version and on the top a complete new modern 911 as standard and Bennys version.

This would be some love for the fans.

The Comet Retro doesn't seem to have an option for plates, so make sure you have the plate you want before upgrading at Benny's. The spoilers also don't seem to show that they add traction, but I imagine they still do.

Apparently not - according to Broughy and other folks who've looked into the handling files, the Comet Retro Custom (and also the Itali GTB Custom and Specter Custom) all use the same 'downforce modifier' as the ETR1, RE-7B and some of the other Cunning Stunts cars, and so they get a traction increase from that when cornering at higher speeds.

 

To compensate, cars with this modifier get no traction benefit from a custom spoiler, so it doesn't matter which one you add, in terms of stock/custom, since they don't do anything.

 

See here - skip to 4:08 for the info regarding the downforce stat on certain cars:

Oh good, because I'm liking it without a spoiler.

Well, there is no snow on my custom stunt races, so if you're on PS4 you can give that a try if you want to drive your Comet in normal conditions...lord knows we'll have plenty of time to drive then in the snow :/

I see what you did here ;) (I've one green like this too.)

btw it's a crew color member or a in-game green? (It look way way better than the one that I have right now.)
