In The Lost and Damned, the [[Vapid]] Slamvan is a different vehicle, as it no longer resembles a heavily customized pickup like it did in GTA San Andreas. It now resembles a [[wp:Rat Rod|Rat Rodded]] [[wp:Ford F-Series|1953–1956 Ford F-Series panel van]]. It appears to have the windshield and door tops from a [[wp:Ford F Series|1980's Ford F-Series]]. The Slamvan comes in only four color schemes, one of which is a two-tone gray body color, and another includes a black body with red wheels. The Slamvan also bears [[The Lost Brotherhood|The Lost MC's]] insignia. The Slamvan has its badges removed, but police chatter will refer the van as a "Vapid Slamvan". Like most other vehicles in the game, the Slamvan has no reversing lights, nor does it have licence plates.

===GTA V and GTA Online===
  +
In GTA V, the Slamvan is featured with two different designs. The van variant from TLAD, now named as the 'Lost Slamvan', as well as a pick-up truck body style. Similar to the van version, the Slamvan pick-up is also heavily based on the [[wp:Ford F-Series|1953–1956 Ford F-Series]] but in a pick-up form. [[The Lost MC|The Lost]] variant is similar to TLAD model but has changes on gang tags as well as a different taillight design. It also has a rear licence plate set.
   
In The Lost and Damned, the [[Vapid]] Slamvan is a different vehicle, as it no longer resembles a heavily customized pickup like it did in GTA San Andreas. It now resembles a [[wp:Rat Rod|Rat Rodded]] [[wp:Ford F-Series#Second generation (1953–1956)|1953–1956 Ford F-Series panel van]]. It awkwardly appears to have the windshield and door tops from a [[wp:Ford F Series#Seventh generation (1980–1986)|1980's Ford F-Series]]. The Slamvan comes in only four color schemes, one of which is a two-tone gray body color, and another includes a black body with red wheels. The Slamvan also bears [[The Lost Brotherhood|The Lost MC]]'s insignia. The Slamvan has been debadged, but police chatter will refer the van as a "Vapid Slamvan".

The Slamvan's performance is below average, being attributed largely by its poor acceleration, although the van can achieve average speeds. The van's rear wheel torque makes it prone to fishtailing, but it is capable of relatively good cornering and braking, presumably because of its light weight.

==Performance==
  +
===GTA San Andreas===
  +
In GTA San Andreas, the Slamvan is quite nimble and comfortable to drive due to its supercharged V8 and upgraded suspension, it possesses good acceleration and average top speed, its brakes are also strong, being capable of quickly stopping from top speed to zero, its dowsides however, is the arguably poor durability and stability, despite its low height, it can still rollover easily.
   
Lost MC member [[Terry Thorpe]] uses the Slamvan as a weapons transport. The Slamvan does spawn elsewhere on very rare occasions, mainly during [[Gang Warfare in The Lost and Damned|gang wars]]. The vehicle can can also be spawned via [[Cheats in GTA IV#The Lost and Damned|cheats]].

===TLAD and TBOGT===

The Slamvan's performance is below average, being attributed largely to its poor acceleration, although the van can achieve average speeds. The van's rear wheel torque makes it prone to fishtailing, but it is capable of relatively good cornering and braking, presumably because of its light weight. In TBOGT, the van occasionally backfires when shifting gears.

===GTA V===
  +
[[File:Slamvan-vapid-engine-close-up-muscle-gtav.jpg|thumb|Engine close-up in [[GTA V]].]]
  +
In GTA V, the Slamvan has a customized supercharged V8, which sounds similar to the [[Duke O'Death]], [[The Liberator]], and [[Marshall]]. In game stat-bars and testing has shown it has the same performance as the [[Rat-Loader]] and its clean variant, the Rat-Truck. Thus, it has average acceleration and top speed, matched with very poor brakes and traction. [[The Lost MC|The Lost]] Slamvan features similar engine as the pick-up variant but has an improved acceleration. Traction is also enhanced as well as braking strengthened.

==The Slamvan Trick==
 
==The Slamvan Trick==
The Slamvan only makes an appearance in TBoGT, during the chase sequence in [[Frosting on the Cake]]. Once this part of the mission starts, the player is locked into tossing sticky bombs. To obtain a Slamvan, as soon as the sequence begins, frantically begin pressing all the buttons on your controller (excluding the analog sticks), and Luis will "get out" of the car. He'll still be stuck in the sticky bomb targeting mode, but this will end once the mission fails for abandoning the car. Proceed to find a nearby Slamvan and take it to a safehouse.

NOTE: Sometimes the "sticky bomb aim" effect will last after the mission. This effect prevents the player from getting inside vehicles. The solution is to switch to fists or a melee weapon. This will allow Luis to interact with cars normally. Saving and loading the file will also fix this issue.

The Slamvan is a vehicle available in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and in the Grand Theft Auto IV downloadable episodic pack The Lost and Damned. It was added to Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online in the Festive Surprise & the Heists Update. It is made by Vapid in the HD Universe.

DesignEdit

GTA San AndreasEdit

In GTA San Andreas the Slamvan resembles a heavily customized second generation Chevrolet GMC C/K with the front styling of a Dodge Sidewinder. Naturally, it is a two door and can only seat two people. Sometimes the Slamvan will spawn with a custom chain steering wheel.

The Lost and DamnedEdit

In The Lost and Damned, the Vapid Slamvan is a different vehicle, as it no longer resembles a heavily customized pickup like it did in GTA San Andreas. It now resembles a Rat Rodded 1953–1956 Ford F-Series panel van. It appears to have the windshield and door tops from a 1980's Ford F-Series. The Slamvan comes in only four color schemes, one of which is a two-tone gray body color, and another includes a black body with red wheels. The Slamvan also bears The Lost MC's insignia. The Slamvan has its badges removed, but police chatter will refer the van as a "Vapid Slamvan". Like most other vehicles in the game, the Slamvan has no reversing lights, nor does it have licence plates.

The Ballad of Gay TonyEdit

The Slamvan is also seen in The Ballad of Gay Tony, but only in the mission Frosting on the Cake where it is unobtainable (unless the Slamvan trick is performed). It shares the same design as the Slamvan from TLAD.

GTA V and GTA OnlineEdit

In GTA V, the Slamvan is featured with two different designs. The van variant from TLAD, now named as the 'Lost Slamvan', as well as a pick-up truck body style. Similar to the van version, the Slamvan pick-up is also heavily based on the 1953–1956 Ford F-Series but in a pick-up form. The Lost variant is similar to TLAD model but has changes on gang tags as well as a different taillight design. It also has a rear licence plate set.

PerformanceEdit

GTA San AndreasEdit

In GTA San Andreas, the Slamvan is quite nimble and comfortable to drive due to its supercharged V8 and upgraded suspension, it possesses good acceleration and average top speed, its brakes are also strong, being capable of quickly stopping from top speed to zero, its dowsides however, is the arguably poor durability and stability, despite its low height, it can still rollover easily.

TLAD and TBOGTEdit

The Slamvan's performance is below average, being attributed largely to its poor acceleration, although the van can achieve average speeds. The van's rear wheel torque makes it prone to fishtailing, but it is capable of relatively good cornering and braking, presumably because of its light weight. In TBOGT, the van occasionally backfires when shifting gears.

GTA VEdit

Engine close-up in GTA V.

In GTA V, the Slamvan has a customized supercharged V8, which sounds similar to the Duke O'Death, The Liberator, and Marshall. In game stat-bars and testing has shown it has the same performance as the Rat-Loader and its clean variant, the Rat-Truck. Thus, it has average acceleration and top speed, matched with very poor brakes and traction. The Lost Slamvan features similar engine as the pick-up variant but has an improved acceleration. Traction is also enhanced as well as braking strengthened.

The Slamvan TrickEdit

The Slamvan only makes one appearance in TBoGT, during the chase sequence in Frosting on the Cake. Once this part of the mission starts, the player is locked into tossing sticky bombs. To obtain a Slamvan, as soon as the sequence begins, frantically begin pressing all the buttons on your controller (excluding the analog sticks), and Luis will "get out" of the car. He'll still be stuck in the sticky bomb targeting mode, but this will end once the mission fails for abandoning the car. Proceed to find a nearby Slamvan and take it to a safehouse.

NOTE: Sometimes the "sticky bomb aim" effect will last after the mission. This effect prevents the player from getting inside vehicles. The solution is to switch to fists or a melee weapon. This will allow Luis to interact with cars normally. Saving and loading the file will also fix this issue.

LocationsEdit

GTA San AndreasEdit

The Lost and DamnedEdit

  • Used in the mission "Heavy Toll".
  • Sometimes in a gang war, the Angels of Death will cruise around in one. Kill all the Angels of Death members and the Slamvan is yours for the taking. Try not to tear it up during the gang war though, as these often have unique paintjobs such as blue and white and black and orange.
  • Can be spawned via a cheat code (826-555-0100).
  • Can be obtained by calling Terry Thorpe and then pushing his Slamvan to a car save.

The Ballad of Gay TonyEdit

  • Seen in the mission Frosting on the Cake, and can only be obtained if the Slamvan trick is performed.

GTA VEdit

GTA OnlineEdit

Notable OwnersEdit

TriviaEdit

GeneralEdit

  • The Slamvan plays the following radio stations by default when entered:
  • The police in The Lost and Damned sometimes refer to it as a "pickup", despite it having the appearance of a van. This may possibly indicate that the vehicle was a pickup truck in the Beta, much like it was in GTA San Andreas. For GTA V, however, a pickup variant is featured, which would be the mentioned Beta model.

GTA San AndreasEdit

  • In the GTA San Andreas beta, Slamvans had a different wheel design and had a different paint job not seen in the final version.

Episodes from Liberty CityEdit

  • The standard Slamvan has a different horn than its Lost MC counterpart.

GTA VEdit

  • Its description on Southernsanandreassuperautos.com references both its previous depictions, in San Andreas as a lowrider and in The Lost and Damned being used by Liberty City bikers.
  • The Lost variant along with the second variations of the Barracks and the Trashmaster are the only DLC vehicles that are not available for purchase.
  • The Lost Slamvan can be obtained by setting the Respawn vehicle to "Lost Slamvan" while making a GTA Capture in the creator.
