Three-wheeled cars?

Postby Santeri » Tue Feb 02, 2016 5:33 am

Just a thought, since I really liked them in Firebugs, I'm wondering if we'll have anything similar in GRIP?

With three-wheeled I mean the car that's being driven in this video. I think it could be very cool, if possible. A little bit of variation is always nice, if you ask me. Any thoughts?

If it has been suggested/considered already, then sorry in advance. :P

Alright people, let's try to stay friendly...

Also, just as a reference since I don't know if Santeri knows this, but most people on the forum here have a background in the rollcage games.
compared to firebugs, it's a lot faster and a lot more difficult. (and it has a hardcore following that is close to being religious ;) )

In the eyes of most rollcage players, firebugs is terrible due to the slower racing and the weird physics.

Hey guys, may I remind you that not everything in Firebugs is bad ?

Track design is cool. With a lot more speed, and less weird weapons mechanism, and a "cleaner" driving, Firebugs could have been a nice game to play.

I don't think we should refuse an idea just because it comes from Firebugs.

Back on the subject, GRIP cars are badass. Firebugs cars are more like toys in comparison.
If you can think of a design of a badass 3-wheeled car, then it might fit Grip.

How about one big tire in the front and in the back double tires on both sides? Problem would be that the cockpit would be more on the side.
Definitively speed class.

Or it could still have four wheels but the two in the front are closer to each other.

+1 Santeri.
Three-wheeled cars r kewl

+1 Potterman.
Firebugs is boring as sh*t with a gimped weapons system, but it has some neat tracks, exploding cars that rebuild themselves and original car designs.

I still like the idea of two wheels in the front and one wheel in the back, with the jets on the sides of the one back wheel

I get that some people like the style but... It just doesn't make sense!
Just like how having mechanical drive axles doesn't make sense. Why else would the devs used magnetic couplings? "Because it's awesome". Well yeah! It is awesome, but that's because it ALSO makes sense!

Physically speaking 3 wheels is just asking for trouble. Unless the body of the vehicle banks like a motorcycle (which would totally change the way they drive), and each wheel had 33% more traction area, then it's just silly!

Silly is not always awesome btw.

The scythed chariot bladed wheels thing is actually a really cool weapon idea.

As for 3 wheeled cars - why not? As a light, super fast acceleration vehicle idea, it has a certain cool factor, regardless of being attached to a game some don't like.

@Apex: It can be done in a functional way. We can make it happen ;)

Won't be soon though

I have a feeling as soon as someone sees a tri-wheeled vehicle driving by almost everyone is gonna team up to shoot/blast it away instead before continuing to fight each other.

Blasphemy!
I call heresy on this topic X) 3 wheels... Geez. Why not 2 while we're at it ?
Next thing we know, a manufacturer will have hovering cars and the whole thing will turn into flight simulator.

I'll be among those shooting the living crap out of the heretic m*therf*cker driving a 3 wheeled car anytime online in GRIP. :twisted:

Come on people, back to your senses X) - or are there kick ass concept arts already out that I missed ?

After visualizing everyone ganging up on the dirty heretic pansy 3-wheeler in the race I suddenly like this idea.

As long as the 3-wheeler has distinctive strengths and weaknesses that make it different-but-fair, it could be pretty awesome!

I could see it sort of serving the Ria role. Light, quick, and fast, but roadkill in a fight (or even an accidental tap).

Hell I could even see 2wheelers! Extremely light, very fast, but a b*tch to control, and an absolute push-over (literally).

Why so shy and stop half way? Lets take it to the next level.

What we need is a one wheel car ! :ugeek:

(u know just bigger)
