1.“Good sculpt” it looks like someone with no knowledge of cars tried to draw from memory a generic coke bottle Chrysler from the late 60s. The lines are so exaggerated it basically looks like a cheap knockoff Hotwheels diecast. Just look at the A pillar for example, and how it’s wider at the bottom than at the top. Comical.

For 2014 standards of what they were doing, that was acceptable as a good sculpt quality, obviously it doesn't apply for today's standards which is why they touched up the sculpt of the base model to make the Beater Dukes.

2. OR, they could’ve just hastily swapped all the GCC mods to a new Dukes Custom, and pretended that the GCC never existed. The interior stuff would’ve been a copy paste swap, the liveries only need minor mods, and most of the exterior stuff only would need nips and tucks here and there to make sure the meshes line up.

You missed my point, my theory was that the Beater Dukes was slapped together at the last minute AFTER folks started complaining about how dumb it was to make a Daytona Charger on the bodywork of a Challenger...Which would be after the reveal of the reveal of the Gauntlet Classic Custom, from the reveal of the car until the update came around there was no time to model all the stuff that the GCC has.

 

Anyway, it was just a simple theory and turned out to not be true as @SummerFreeze just revealed that the Beater Dukes ID comes from the previous update, which means that they had the car designed a long ago.

2007*, and it wasn’t good then either. Compare the Dukes to some other GTA 4-vintage cars like the Emperor and Futo. Night and day difference in quality.

 

I know. What I was saying is that after the teaser image with the GCC was unveiled and people started complaining, THEN they could’ve just binned it and hastily switched the mods to a Dukes Custom. And in the update’s newswire post, pretended that the GCC never existed.

Really hoping they fix the headlights on this, it's one thing having the high beams bugged out and shooting up into space but for the normal lights as well? f*ckin travesty lol.

Did you mean from video? When I was doing mine, it seemed normal but high beams were like a truck with a light bar and everything on it.

No I mean from my car in game, drive it up to a wall and turn on the headlights. There is some light that hits the ground in front of the car but the bulk of the beams shoot up in the air like the high beams, first car I seen with this issue on the standard headlights. Honestly I didn't even notice this myself until a day or two ago, just assumed for the longest time that the lights were dim as sh*t cause it was an older car.

I guess GTA universe’s Nascar [Hotring?] went to the 110in wheelbase about ten years sooner? That’s the only justification I can think of why it’s a Challenger Daytona rather than a Charger.

I think we've been getting spoiled a lot lately. This thing makes a pretty good Superbird, sure the rear is a little f*cked up, but the front end of the wing cars is the real draw anyways. As the Mopar guy you know I am, this has been a VERY fun update!

I like it? It falls into the same category as the Sultan RS where the car you end up with doesn't have a super clear real life analogue? like the RS is arguably a 2 door Impreza and this is arguably a Daytona but there are more differences than similarities. I guess it's like, it's cool when GTA ends up having cars that could've been built IRL but haven't been. Like, "this is a different world than the one we live in, of course there are going to be cars that are just unrecognizable"

Yeah I'm not the biggest dodge fan, and in particular I'm not a superbird fan (design wise, don't think it's bad just not for me) but I'm really liking how this turned out. Not a fan of the spoiler so I'll never use that but either way the car is now my favorite muscle when the base version was previously just "a" favorite. The black one JCSS posted above is a similar build/color combo to mine.

The fact that i don't love how the irl daytona/superbird is proportioned might be a factor in why i like this one more

 

anyways: this is a minor gripe in the grand scheme of things but its kind of odd that the fenders cut off where the nose cone starts? Like it'd be cool if when you knocked the nosecone off, most of the front end of the regular gauntlet classic is still kind of under there, kind of like how under the jeep grand wagoneer's facelift grilles, the original grille/headlight cutouts are still there

Open these pics in two new tabs, and then use Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDn to check out all of the difference between the OG Gauntlet classic and the new one!

Dunno how well it'd mesh with the dimensions of the front end if the nose on the custom was just a cone piece they fitted over the original geometry, especially when you take the hood and where it starts on each version into account. Either way I get what you're saying, I would be lying if I didn't admit when I first was customizing it I wished there was a new front end option without the new nose lol, but I've gotten used to it at this point I guess. Now my only issue is those damn headlights shooting up into the air.

Yeah i was thinking something more along the lines of...new fenders and front end that appear to be the OG fenders and front end without lights or a grille or a bumper and with the dimensions tweaked enough for the nosecone to fit over it. i realize that its incredibly minor but you know, wouldve been cool, i guess

Also how it is now is pretty close to how the real deal Daytonas/Superbirds were built, nose cone wise.

According to Broughy's testing, higher top speed than the Gauntlet Hellfire :kekw:

I still have zero issues with it, if anything it's only grown on me more and I rated it a 10/10 the day after I first drove it. Even though the performance tweaks are minor, I love the slightly different feel from the GC, it's different enough to justify keeping my old stock GCs for their superior traction. The model is fine IMO, but the mods are what takes it to another level. The interior options allow a wide range between civilian and classic stock car. Literally my only gripe is the big ass handbrake lever..  I'll overlook it to get that awesome steel floorboard.

I'm all for stuff like this, like experimenting and mixing  bits and pieces between cars and that's the great thing about GTA cars, because it's more like a rule to do so and we get to see some interesting results, that would never happen irl. I just don't think this really works. Of course the Plymouth Superbird is a crazy looking thing at first glance too, but we're all just so used to, so maybe that's why this looks so weird and "wrong" because it's attached into a vehicle with such different proportions?

 

Be grateful R* used the Classic and not the Hellfire.  People do this conversion to new Challengers.
