Under normal circumstances, the "hotring" is the only variant of the Hotring Racer available for players to drive. However, during the "[[8-Track]]" race of ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', the player drives a "hotrinb." The "hotrina" and "hotrinb" are only obtainable through cheat codes or by glitching them out of the stadium, as seen [https://youtu.be/vRxdCjs4mmA here]

Revision as of 12:29, February 11, 2019

The Hotring Racer is a race car featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Description

The Hotring Racer is evidently a Stock car racing vehicle, distinguished by the rather unique design and paint schemes with fictional business ads. They resemble stock cars of the mid-1980s.

In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, they are used in the "Hotring" side mission, while in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, they are used in the "8-Track" side mission.

Design

3D Universe

The Hotring Racer comes in three different versions, although in both Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, only one is available to the player as a reward, while the other two are only available by using cheats or glitching them out of the stadium. The three Hotring Racers differ in performance and design.

  • The first variant ("hotring") vaguely resembles the 9th generation Ford Thunderbird.
  • The second variant ("hotrina") resembles a 1985 Chevrolet Camaro and Buick Skyhawk (front), and a 1985 Chevrolet Cavalier (rear).
  • The third variant ("hotrinb") resembles a 1988 Oldsmobile Cutlass (front), and a 1988 Chevrolet Monte Carlo (rear).

The "hotring" in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City lacked a roll cage and netting, unlike the "hotrina" and "hotrinb." This inconsistency was partially fixed in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, which added netting to the vehicle.

Depending of the version and the game, each variation will have the following sponsors:

Performance

3D Universe

The Hotring Racers in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City are fast vehicles, almost on par with most sport cars in the game, like the Infernus or the Cheetah. The top speed and the acceleration are impressive and the grip is very good. Its resistance may not be one of the best, but is still a strong vehicle. The vehicle's handling is average, but at higher speeds, it will suffer from understeer, though not as severe.

In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the three Hotring Racers share the same performance characteristics. They are the second fastest cars in the game in terms of top speed and boast rapid acceleration and good handling, although they are prone to fishtailing at high speeds. Hotring Racers are rear-wheel drive, and allow drifting.
