Yes, I think that's the two storey clubhouse garage.

Quite disappointed with this thing. I think Rockstar was high when making this and just pulled it out of their ass with very little to no thought. I was expecting it to be way faster in terms of straight line speed, like at least Pariah levels of top speed, if not more. You'd think to make up for its piss poor handling, it would have exceptional top speed, but nope. It's also not that fun to drive. 

 

Not much in terms of customization and you can't even customize the wheels. It's kinda ugly, too. Oh, and the acceleration isn't that great, either. There's some wheelspin when attempting to take off. "Rocket" my ass. 


Big fat engine like that on a lightweight frame would be able to pull up so fast that every time you turn the throttle full open, your arms get longer again. Instead, that bigass supercharged V8 does nothing more than a Futo with it's straight 4, and perhaps even less too. 
But, it looks quirky and sadly lacking a lot of customizing options.

Question, is the handling supposed to be bad or am I just a pro at handling bad handlers?

 

Truthfully, I drove it, top speed from Fort Zancudo, straight to Paleto Bay; and it flew around the corners pretty good imo. Weaving in and out. It's heavy, for sure; but it's easy to tame.

Yeah, for a custom built dragster, this trike is in the slow side of things.

From first person view it rides like a dream. Seems the understeering is non existent. Riding it from third person view is less smooth, but still fine for a trike though.

^^ So I wonder if there's space to walk to each rampant rabbit, to even be able to drive them out, or would you have to call the mechanic for delivery..

How it feels to drive the Vigilante :

How it feels to drive the Gauntlet Classic :

How it feels to drive the Mobile Operations Center :

How it feels to drive the Rampant Rocket :

TediousRevolvingDavidstiger-size_restric

 

I really feel like this bike doesn't like me ... (but i still like it)

 

 

So ... It looks Brilliant ... and it is a brilliant killing machine ... (that is if the only person you want to kill is yourself ...)

 

Tips to avoid dying all the time when riding this thing ...

 

 

1 Avoid every jumps

 

2 Avoid every sidewalks

 

3 Avoid every bumps

 

4 Don't even think about driving this thing offroad

 

5 You're gonna be sent flying anyway so start praying right now ...

 

 

But it sure looks good ! (although 1 million for a bike constantly trying to kill you is a bit overpriced for me ...)

Overhall i think it looks really epic ... We're on Fränken Stange level of badassery right here ...

It is nothing but a very dangerous toy ...

 

And altough i think the Fränken Stange engine sound would have sounded better and more acurate to the real deal (the Rocket 2 Trike)

 

 

It still sounds not too bad ...

 

So ... Avoid this at any costs if you are not a V8 fan and/or a weird car lover ...

 

I did mine like the real thing ... Simply because it think it's very nice this way. And i wanted to keep it simple ...

After having driven this thing for some hours, you can clearly tell this lady doesn't like bumps or any type of disturbances ... But as long as you treat her like a good gentleman ... she'll treat you nicecely too in return ...

 

A very cool addition to the game.

 

 

(Totally off topic here but if anybody knows how to make my pictures look bigger in the posts that would be very much appreciated. I've tried for many hours now and i can't find any answers ...

whatever my picture is 1920 or 1200 or 4000 pixels of width the image stays the same ... I've also used different websites to see if it was that ... It wasn't ...)

I think I remember you saying something about this before, I'm not quite sure what you mean as your pictures look great to me.

Here's a screenshot of what I see on my phone..

Screenshot-20191101-223920.png

Thinking about that maybe you are saying on bigger screen or something? 

Some guys must know the answer in here, there's lots of knowledgeable people.

 

 

I'm unsure of the quality of mine lately..

Some of them look real fuzzy like that one,

maybe it's the site I use, I dunno

Well it seems on the screenshot you are on phone while i'm on computer but here's an example (in spoiler to not disturb this already too quiet thread)

Spoiler

Here for example i remember this picture from JR_Death ...

 

It takes all my screen

 

2019-11-01-235303.png

 

But when i'm posting the picture it looks tiny to me ... (so i thought it looked tiny to others too ... i just want it to be nicer to see ...)

 

Spoiler

Can everybody see the pictures nicely ? Is it just me ? In that case i'd be alright with it.

This thing is slower than a f*cking Washington! lmfao

 

 

One of the devs over there at Rockstar were either on shrooms when coding this thing or didn't love their job enough. That also probably explains why it cannot be requested via the MC menu despite it being classed as a motorcycle.

 

This thing is botched.

Another blunder he made was....., after applying a turbo, where is it? Slap a 50K turbo on it should at least make one visible, but no, we can't have that. Never had that on any no-cover engined car or bike at all. 
Also, the rod on the left side of the front wheel, for steering, clips right through the wheel when taking a right turn. Someone has been sleeping on the job.

I would have gotten one since ages now if the rust could be removed ... but well ...

I guess we can't have everything ? ... Or more like we can't have very simple details that would make some vehicles much more attractive to more peoples ...

 

Honestly why would i really care in the end ? I always revert back to driving that good ol' Sabre Turbo 😄

 

Even the Gauntlet Classic has not managed to last longer than a month as a daily driver before i go back to the Sabre ... so this bike is not gonna be a big deal ! Neither the Rat Rod !

Yeah, what really are they smoking? Cos I DONT want some.

 

Why make the cake then sh*t on it?

 

Why not bother to even put all the ingredients in?

 

I think that they think they are funny, like those chefs that make something sweet looking, taste savoury.

 

Why make something the opposite of what it should be?

 

That's not irony.

 

That's just sh*t.

 

In fact it's insulting to the origins of their ideas and inspirations. When they do this they lose the essence of the thing they are trying to respect.

 

As usual some great touches and work, spoilt by stupid decisions. This machine could have been SOOOOOOO much better, and multiple versions would definitely have been happening for me.

Those liveries.. Brilliant👊👊👊  well..some of them. Lack of customisation is awful. It is key in all vehicles. Even choice of rims would make a massive difference. Even just the rears. No one wants to see them all looking the same. The Chimera has plenty of customisation, but the lack of wheel options really let it down. 

It's nice when you see a similarly styled vehicle when there are millions of ways of configuring it, makes you think, "this guy has taste like mine." But not when you have no choice.

The performance, why? What's the reason??!! Who made that decision? It should have been ridiculously fast. End of.

That should have been it's party piece.

Not.. LOOK 😲 At how slow I am.

This thing should drive like it's about 500+bhp in about <500KGs with next to no handling ability.. but sheer exhilaration.. if you can stay on..

Technically, this vehicle is supercharged, not turbocharged (or at least the RL inspiration does), but I get your point. It's silly being able to put gigantic turbos on vehicles like the Hellion and the Nebula Turbo without actually needing to put Turbo upgrades on it, not to mention how most muscle cars only get turbo whine instead of supercharger ones.

 

IMO, it shouldn't be named "Turbo" in the first place, but something like "Forced induction" instead.

 

Anyways, I managed to beat this week's Time Trial with this trike, so maybe isn't that slow, I guess.

They got so many things wrong on this vehicle. It should be loud as hell without any mufflers on the exhaust. But, it's gimmicky, so it's fine. 
 

Turbo upgrades shouldn't be possible for all vehicles. Motorcycles with a V-Twin engine, for example. You technically can, but visually nothing happens. Oh, and in the early days, I felt conned when taking the Sabre Turbo to LSC and discovered it doesn't have a turbo installed stock and I have to pay twice the money of the car's purchase price to have it installed. 😂😂

Wish there were more customization options. This thread probably won't go too far because of that.

 

It's also a little sad that something so crazy and fun looking isn't very crazy or fun to drive :(

One of the shortest lived things in my collection ever.

Bought.. played with.. bored.. sold.

Could and should have been something special. A unique and fun interesting vehicle.. but no.

Ooh look.. some air under the front wheel..

PS-Messages-20191105-091432.jpg

 

This should have been THE wheelie machine. Maybe even added a new mechanism, not like the muscle cars, but one where it just lifts if you completely nail the throttle without holding handbrake from standing, and then it could be progressively managed on the throttle to balance it. Or just squeeze a bit more gently at first and it won't lift, or hold handbrake and then full throttle smoky starts can be made without the lift. Best of everything then.

It's too slow, handles too well, it's just all wrong. 

And then there's the SEVERE lack of options.

It wouldn't be an everyday vehicle, it's a novelty from the start, it should be super fun, it should have shock value in the way it drives, (considering how it looks) it should be a massive rollercoaster ride, white knuckle, scare the shiiiiit out of you.

It feels so planted, slow and safe. Granny might aswell pop down the shops on it.

I know this is an appreciation thread, and I do appreciate certain aspects of it and some of the work done but I do not appreciate the finished product.

Never has a GTA vehicle offered so much on looks and delivered so little.

 

And now it's trying to eat me..

PS-Messages-20191105-091426.jpg

Scarier standing still than moving.

Fk this.. off to LSC. You're gone.

Waste of money? Not the problem.

I would have wasted so much more had you got it right R*...
