Progen Emerus Appreciation Thread

TBH I would sell the Deveste 8 to buy a Dundreary Station wagon I hate it so bad if I needed the money.  But it will just sit in my garage unless I use it for bait for broomstick idiots to drain their bank accounts.  😁

I actually really like the front and rear ends of the Deveste, but the sides are so uninspired that it ruins the whole car in my opinion. It's like all creative efforts were on designing the front and rear only, giving the rest of the car the most possibly bland design they could. It's that bad for me, and I've only bought it because of its great stunt\highway racing performance.

 

There's no way that car would've made me to spend nearly 2 million otherwise, so I won't miss it at all if I end up selling it :p

How well the Deveste holds up against the Emerus? Is it any relevant on stunt races now? 

I believe the Deveste Eight would still be the fastest vehicle on tracks with long tube sections.

That will be interesting with the right drivers.  I admittedly never mastered the Deveste 8 so that's why I hate it LOL.  But I've been beaten by it many times.

I'll buy the Emerus soon, since I'll be getting in the game in a few minutes. When I get my hands on it I'll be comparing both on some tracks so I can see it for myself.

 

Just like I did with the Issi Sport before selling my Flash GT.

I bought mine this morning and fully upgraded it.  The looks of it are not really that special, reminds me of the Grotti Cheetah.  But man it's fast.  Rockstar definitely raised the bar on super cars with this update.  All my old supers are obsolete with the addition of these 3 (so far) supers.  First time I tried the Emerus I beat my old track record on Green Machine by 3 seconds.  And that was a perfect run with the Nero Custom with really good competition pushing me.  I just did this solo and didn't really try that hard.  You can take every turn at full speed pretty much.  

What time did you get on Green Machine? Only did a few laps and got 2.35,xxx  but didn't get a really good run so can be improved. Still some seconds slower than my best D8 time there :)

Drove my Vagner to Benny's to sell it. I spawn outside and right after that somebody else drives their Vagner in and sells it as well. Pretty funny, but I expect it will be a pretty common sight

I didn't write the time down on Green Machine...but if you happen to try Vespucci with yours I hit 2:19.

It does seem to ride lower at speed, shame it doesn't sit low when we park up/get out.

I don't sell the supers ever.  I even have the Adder still haha.  But I have lots of time to grind for money.

I actually think the Vagner is one of the nicer looking super cars. So I wouldn't mind if it loses its reputation as the OP racing vehicle.

I tried it on vespucci a couple of minutes ago, got 2.16.xxx the first lap and the rest and the last two laps I messed up all the time. 

 

Might be a bad day but the car seems inconsistent to me 

 

Anyone else experiencing that personal best don't show up in races? Or that leader board data can't be retrieved or something like that?

Than it's probably some problems with social club or something, if R* were as eager to fix things like this as they are with money glitches.. 🤔

One thing I noticed with the car when you go off a jump release the throttle and wait to land to hit it again.  My other cars I just keep the throttle in all the time but this car just kind of bogs down until I release it and then it takes off.  Maybe that's a part of the issue?  2:16 is a good time.

I personally never liked it that much, I pretty much just had it because it was so OP. But then I never used it very much anyway, so this was a good excuse to get rid of it. Don't like these new ones that much either, but I guess I might as well upgrade. Better customization at least

Yeah I noticed I kept setting "personal records" that were slower than I remember them being. Maybe in the next update they'll fix it.

It was like that last weekend but it was normal on Monday or Tuesday but yesterday it was back to being messed up, so it should be something they should be able to fix easy enough but they might never fix it either 😊

How do you guys upgrade the car when you get them? I only upgrade the ones I'm going to race with, but I always forget which upgrade is necessary, the only one I'm sure of is the engine upgrade, but is the turbo necessary too? And the brake  and suspension one?

Engine, brakes, transmission, turbo and spoilers are what you must upgrade for racing. The rest is just cosmetic :)

Cool doors I guess. Little annoyed with the wheels, grill and trim options, but at least I got the wing off. What color goes fastest?

Not purely cosmetic since different cosmetic upgrades change the COM (senter of mass) of the car. Can actually make a small difference but mostly it just makes it easier to get consistent good lap times. Some cars are more noticeable than others :)

Pretty much copied my FiveM design over.

 

It's not bouncy or anything, but it punishes you heavily if you push it beyond its limit - it will almost always spin out if you try to corner with too much speed.

How did you get the livery to be blue?

Do suspension upgrades help at all or just cosmetic?

Well for these upgrades I always go for what fits to my intended functions with a given car. Racing cars usually gets racing parts, street cars can vary far more in that regard.

 

The customization options on the Emerus are atrocious though. The bumpers and skirts are terrible, way too wide as if the car was intended to have a widebody kit at some point. The wings and liveries are the only thing that's decent. And that fake diffuser is just laughable :lol: f*cking heck, it's hard to believe that I've just dumped 3 million on it. Buuuut, dominant car is dominant :p

Mostly cosmetic. They might do something with the handling, but if they do, it's a pretty small difference that I never really noticed on any car. I tend to go with whatever looks better :)

It's been like that since the game came out for me, I can count on one hand the amount of times my leaderboard data has saved correctly in the last six years.

It's black. It's just the lighting and the filter I used.

I wanted to race this earlier before I sell my Deveste and Thrax, then maybe eventually this for the Krieger but Rockstar's servers decided to crap themselves and won't let me go on call for a race. Well it did eventually only to kick me back to story mode because "connection to the host has been lost".

How this car perfoms in stunt races ? I just have beaten my record in cutting corners in a messed up lap, so street races it is the king.
