This was really tough. I mean I’ve spent ages looking over these and even now, I’m still not 100% sure I’ve picked the right winner.
One day later
It had been a busy day. After
joyriding taking a test drive in each car by finding them and breaking in acquiring them through questionable means, he had to decide which car to take.
First of all, time to remove the cars that seemed better on paper than they actually were.
Tishillyman Sasa TG - Conan
“Seemed too good to be true at first. Great handling at low speed, just like the ads had said. MPG claimed was possible, and it got to some decent speeds. Just a shame that at high speeds, it’s undrivable, there’s all the terminal oversteer. So that’s a no.”
LLA M50X - LinkLuke
“Funny how caught up in the off-roading capabilities I got. Nothing even came close, to it on that level. But to go off-road, it’s got to get off the roads. And while it certainly isn’t weak or light, a little more strength wouldn’t go amiss. And pushing 10 second 0-62 is pretty bad, even for a focused off-roader. As much as I want to like it, it’s a one trick pony.”
TSR Kazuma Turbo S - Aaron.W
“It’s great, but compared to the others it doesn’t hit the mark. I can’t really fault it at what it does. A little weak maybe, and rather limited to the roads, but otherwise really good. Shame to see it go.”
Americar Executive 1500 - nerd
“Big, brash, absolutely insane. The handling was impossible, but on a straight enough road even police helicopters would struggle to follow it. If it was a little more direct and precise, it would be amazing, but unfortunately not.”
Viktria Pistos [B]iesel - Chipskate
“Mental machine. Best 0-62 of everything here, good handling, but it’s not exactly a popular car. That combined with it being weak and little to no off-roading capabilities means I’m limited in options during a struggle.”
The Top 5
5th: Sinistra Savage UltraSport - Madrias
“It’s brutal quick in a straight line, and doesn’t handle that bad considering the power and weight the front wheels have to deal with. Still, it needs something other than the raw power and speed it has. While it’s a bit of a tank, I wouldn’t want to ram things all day in it either.”
4th: DiMarino Cuneo Turbo - abg7
“Decent speed, incredible handling, not all that popular though. Finding one was a little harder than most other cars here, which makes hiding it from the cops is a little tricky. Other than the handling, the off-road ability was impressive. A very good car, but it’s got to go.”
3rd: HRM Lay-Z-Boi Concept - HardRooster
“A big strong tank with some impressive speed. Yet it has a surprisingly small cargo capacity despite its size, which is why it has to go.”
2nd: Evgenis Valkyrie 2.0T XLine - Cheeseman
“Some okay speed on the road, with a nice fuel economy that’ll let me run for hours. Loads about for me to blend in with, it’s the perfect stealth car. And can even be taken off-road if needed. Lower cargo room than most and load capacity is also a slight downside.”
1st: Excelsior Pulmino Veloce - strop
“It’s fast, common, sips fuel, and handles well. Combine that with a huge cargo area and it’s perfect for what I need. Still, it’s awful off-road, and could be a little stronger.”
So, this is over! Honestly, I feel like I got a bit nitpicky at the final 5 because of how close it was despite how different the cars are. And yeah, any one of these car could really have had a chance to win, and maybe if I had more time I would’ve came up with a different result. Anyway, congrats to @strop for winning! This was fun, and interesting to see how many different ways people took this problem. Also, sorry for taking so long to judge!
