Hotring Racers share the same top speed, but they have distinct handling characteristics. All three are rear-wheel-drive. The "hotrina" is the superior variant. With no oversteer, it sports the best grip of the three. The "hotrinb" oversteers a bit at high speed, and the "hotring" oversteers more easily than the "hotrinb". None of the Hotrings suffer from understeer. Oversteer occurs where it is to be expected: the corner exit. Minor handling differences make the Hotrings only slightly better or worse than one another.

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

Description Edit

Overview Edit

The Hotring Racers are among Grand Theft Auto's quickest cars. They feature in the stadium race challenges of GTA Vice City and San Andreas. Hotring Racers are presumably based on stock cars. Each Hotring Racer variant contains sponsor stickers, labeled with GTA's fictional businesses. There are currently three variants of the Hotring Racer.

Design and variants Edit

The three Hotring Racers differ in performance and design. They resemble vehicles of the late '80s / early '90s (perhaps they are based on NASCAR stock cars). The first variant (internally named "hotring") vaguely resembles a very generic GM G body. The second variant (internally named "hotrina") resembles a Chevrolet Lumina, and a 1985-1986 Ford Thunderbird. The third variant (internally named "hotrinb") shares minor design aspects with a Chevrolet Monte Carlo (rear side window), and a Buick Regal (front). The "hotring" in GTA Vice City lacked a roll cage and netting, unlike the "hotrina" and "hotrinb". This inconsistency was partially rectified in GTA San Andreas, which added netting to the vehicle.

Performance (GTA San Andreas) Edit

The three Hotring Racers share the same top speed. Each variant handles differently. The "hotrina" boasts tremendous grip, superior to the "hotrinb" and "hotring" variants. On any driving course, the "hotrina" will be quicker than its variants. The "hotrinb" will be second-quickest, and the "hotring" will be third-quickest (both variants demand more driver's effort than the "hotrina"). Hotring Racers are rear-wheel drive, and allow drifting.

Accessibility Edit

Under normal circumstances, the "hotring" is the only variant of the Hotring Racer available for players to drive outdoors. The "hotrina" and "hotrinb" are only available via cheats or mods (such as the use of a garage editor or trainers). In the 8-Track race of GTA San Andreas, the player drives a "hotrinb". Elsewhere, it is unavailable.

Other Edit

The "hotring" bears only one number in each game: #27 in GTA Vice City, and #21 in GTA San Andreas. The "hotrina" and "hotrinb" have 6 different car numbers each, in each game:

  • In GTA Vice City, the hotrina may spawn with the numbers #21, #34, #56 or #78, while the hotrinb may be marked with the numbers #14, #28, #65 or #69.
  • In GTA San Andreas, the hotrina can be numbered #14, #45, #52, #67, #73 or #96, while the hotrinb may obtain the numbers #07, #26, #36, #60, #65 or #82.
