It actually annoys me a little that if you pre-ordered you start with the literally fastest vehicle in the game. Its even better than the one you work your butt off to unlock (black). Leaves no room to upgrade, and even if you just prefer another color (Like my beloved billet metallic) .. you have to take a down grade to use it. What do you all think? Should the red one be faster than the others or is it just me?

Challenger sucks. Be a man. Use a dune buggy. They are the true kings of the road.

Actually a known fact the color Red and Flames make vehicles go fast.

Got tired of the Challenger and mostly use the Dune Buggy now, sometime I pull out one of my ATV's too, they are so fun going offroad with :-)

I prefer my quads and buggies to my Red Challenger. The Challengers handle like beached whales.

One of the vendors sells one actually. :p

And yeah I mostly use Quads myself, and have a olive green Duni I bust out on occasion also... I just thought it was weird the pre-order RT was so much faster. Weirdly kind of a let down to me.

If space orks designed them, there would be a 50% the car would back fire/explode everytime you used the boost.

Just checking--this isn't due to a skill bonus for the one you have equipped which isn't reflected on the others, right?

Meh I always use my Nomad anyway since I like it overall the best.

Well I did till I hit roller skill 19 and now refuse to use rollers till I know for sure they have fixed the stupid reset bug, but till then I will use my Hannibal.

Nope. The red one was marketed as the fastest vehicle available at release. That implies that eventually we'll see others that equal or exceed it in speed, but there's been no information beyond that.

Nomad is my favorite vehicle in the game, but sadly I don't have one in live cause I bought from Trion instead of Steam. I had one in beta that was yellow and in Alpha I had a pink camouflage one from the store, but sadly they haven't released them in the store again yet. Fingers crossed it comes soon.

I did not now that about the red challenger ... seems very odd, if anything the black one should be superior.

I haven't had any issues with skills resetting after the patch. Neither for weapons, nor for the two vehicle categories.

+1 on the black one should be fastest. You have to prove your fast and good for that one.

Yeah Nomad is by far my fav makes me glad I pre-ordered on steam.

Good to know, need to level runners anyway but will be nice to be able to go back to my Nomad after.

Don't you know? Red paint is more aerodynamic. Why do you think cops pull over more red cars then others. Its like a big "catch me if you can" sign.

Seriously one would think the one that takes the longest to get would be the fastest. But this issue is only for PR orders. Those that did not are just missing out. But more incentive to get the black one

I use the buggy mainly because I find the Challenger drive / boost / idle sound god awful but also because I much prefer boosting.

The Challenger might be the king of the road, but the dune buggy is definitely the king of the offroad :) I prefer buggies over challengers even though I have both the red and black challenger.

This. It might not be so bad if it wasn't louder than EVERYTHING ELSE. I'd turn it down, but then that would turn down everything that was in the same category.

What are we doing? Sticking our head in the engine? It's kind of funny it's an advertising car, but all it makes me want to do is NOT buy a Dodge Challenger, because I don't want a car that will cause hearing loss.
