RWD or 4WD
Just a comment on the performance section - Does it refer to GTASA or GTAIV? The Vincent in IV is RWD, last I checked.. That Thing There 04:54, 7 March 2009 (UTC)
- Mm, never knew that. Always assumed it was RWD. Very useful site, by the way! That Thing There 01:38, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
Less Effective ABS
The fact that the Vincent's "ABS" must lock up then roll, then lock up, then roll, etc. is less effective. The whole point of ABS is to prevent the wheels from locking up in the first place; when they do lock up they began to slide on the pavement, which increases stopping distance. You can see tire marks from short bits of sliding from the Vincent and I've noticed towards the end of taking the vehicle to a complete stop, the "ABS" keeps the wheels locked; further proving it is less effective. --Energy Monkey 23:41, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
- Yeah, I think I misread your edit.. I wasn't exactly with it last night, my apologies. You are correct, the Vincent has "ALT_ABS" enabled in it's equipment list, and to be frank it is pretty shitty. That Thing There 01:28, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
- No problem, thanks for the feedback. =) --Energy Monkey 01:56, 3 June 2009 (UTC)

Somebody added a section to the 'variants' of GTA IV's Vincent mentioning a turbocharged variant with improved acceleration and a blow-off valve sound similar to the Sultan RS - can anybody confirm this? I spent about two hours last night driving around Broker/Dukes looking for one (must've stolen about 50 of the damn things) and came up with nothing. I couldn't find any reference to it in the game's files either (vehicles.ide, handling.dat etc.), although from what I could see those files don't mention variants anyway.
Anybody seen one of these? If nobody can confirm I'll write it out of the page because I'll be damned if anybody's going to waste as much time as I did looking for a slightly faster 0-60 time.
