I love this interior and the dials

I don't even mind the lacking performance, I came 4th place at the end of this race, gained about 6 positions because randoms are idiots.

 

My only real complaint is the engine sound, it's to weak and generic for it(for anyone wondering, it sounds just like the Turismo R and the Carbonizarre)

I wish it sounded like the Grotti's. It sounds to me almost exactly like the XXR, only slower. If they ever remove the ridiculous "Advanced Flags" nonsense, maybe then it will sound better.

A car this big should sound bigger.

 

It drives like someone is crushing it's balls though, so maybe that's just the sound the car makes when it's castrated

Best description of an engine sound to date.

 

I never really hear my game with music going so it doesn't really matter to me.

 

I just know I bought it and I've drove it the least so far. I'm either in the GB200 going face down, ass up over bumps or cruising in the XXR..

 

While I do like the looks of this car a lot, I just can't get into it.

Basicilly settings in the handling files that give the car a characterstic.

 

One of the flags make the suspension wobbly, one makes it overrev, one makes it change gears early etc

That's so stupid, why would there be a setting that makes the car shift slower? Rockstar Logic

That's exactly what happened to all promisingly-looking sports and super cars in the latest update.

 

Nevertheless, it should be fixed soon, or Rockstar will face serious consequences in outraging emails that will do sh*t.

I bought this slow boat to China with the ugly offset license plate. A sane person would sell it, but I'm keeping it.

Nobody has tested this without the flags yet, but it's coded to reach a maximum top speed of 170.25 MPH, highest top speed a car is coded to reach in the game, but it won't reach that because of the flags and drag coefficient.

 

So, in theory, it should have the highest top speed in the game, but weak acceleration and bad handling, not bad like the 811 but nothing special either.

 

Speaking of the 811, it has been nerfed, I raced a highway race yesterday without catch up and a driver in a Tezaract was keeping up and gaining ground on me on the straights, he only lost because he was a sh*tty driver.

hmm okey ... I´m buying it later on ! :) I kinda like it TBH ....

I think R* will "un-flag" the new cars in the next update , so this would be a lot faster ..

and yeah , the 811 is nerfed , I myself raced against an X80 and couldn´t catch it at all ....

Did a 180° on my Taipan again, I'm very satisfied with how it turned out:

The front and side looks outdated like it was from the early days of gta online super cars. The back of the car destroyed by the idiotic license plate placement. It is a really weird looking super car :monocle:

I really dig the car but its oversizedness (is that a word?) in addition to its issues because of the advanced flags has made me hesitate to buy it.

 

Maybe in the next update? I dunno...

so I bought it ....1.3 Mil. for a new super isn´t bad , plus I´m pretty sure R* will get rid of the flags in the next update .

I actually like the look of it ! pity that those stupid flags are holding it down performance-wise , the handling isn´t brilliant too , It has one of the laziest (worst?) steerings in the game for a super (remind me of the one on the X80) ... let´s see how this will perform once the Flags are gone (hopefully)

and since it´s named after a snake (well the RL Taipan isn´t green , but still ) :

Front and sides are on point. Rear of the car is almost as disgusting as the performance. If they had made the rear visually similar to the Venom F5 I would love it... as a sports car. Been wanting the F5 in-game for ages and this is what we get. Then f*ck I don't have to see the rear of it in my garage

Weird but the Taipan has become one of my favorite cars even though I would not bother racing it.

Feels slow, dosn't it? Not fan of the off-centerd plate and the back end.

Oddly enough, I actually like off-centered plates... (depends on the car) it's performance isn't a big deal to me anyway, i've driven sluggish vehicles in this game long enough for me to forget about it.

 

Edit: The "disgusting" rear of the car is generally based on a Trion Nemesis RR, for those who haven't seen that car yet.

It's on sale, so I took the plunge. Can't say I wasn't warned. I do think it's a neat looking car; it isn't that big. I can tell some care went into the model, it has some nice little touches like the slight upward hinge on the doors. Some good cosmetic options like the quad exhaust.

 

This car cannot get out of its own way. It's just sad what an unthinking, uncaring developer did to it. Sadly I give it only a 50/50 chance they'll fix this.
