    If anyone plans on attending the meet tonight, please let me know. If numbers are really low and/or nobody else attends I may just cancel it. Seems there's no interest in this anymore.

    What time is this happening? Now?

    I didn't realise you were on ps3

    Psn: fussyfez

    Add me and I'll watch this thread. I'll be getting on soon (in the next hour or so) and I'll be on for a while.

    Haven't managed to get together with anyone serious about going slowly yet!

    Hopefully catch you tonight.

    5pm MST, so that's pretty late where you are. This one may be canceled due to minimal interest, but also because I have stuff to work on for my job and may not finish in time. I will probably postpone it until the 7th of February, and move it to Saturday a little earlier.

    Edit: Moved to the 7th, an hour earlier. I can't do any earlier than that since I have a GT6 online race a couple hours before. If we continue on through March or later, then I will make the time better suited for Europe.

    I really like that bright red Merryweather Mesa. How many versions are there? I know there's the default one with rollbars, default with out roof, the one in the third image, and box-shaped body without roll cage.

    I like that Mesa a lot too. Can you guess whose it is? I'll give you a hint. :dopey:

    A better view:

    And my backup:

    And just for kicks:

    As far as I know, the four versions you mentioned are all there is. Although, they do have two colors of stock wheels. If you grab the all black one from Merryweather, the stock wheels will stay black, any other body color has grey wheels.

    To get the special variants of the Mesa, do they spawn randomly, do you have to be a 1337 haxor, or do you have to be friends with a 1337 haxor?

    Ah. That's the one I meant when I said box-shaped body.

    Why was the event canceled on Facebook? Are we not meeting anymore at 4PM MST?

    Can someone please answer my question? How do you get the special variants of the Merryweather Mesa?

    Yes, I ended up having to work.
    I think the cageless one was hacked out, not available any other way. The variants on the caged version I think can be obtained online by having someone call Merryweather security on you.

    The Vapid Guardian, which was added in the Heist Update, climbs Chilliad like it's flat ground... and I don't mean the trails. Best performing off-roader in the game now. Makes the Sandking seem weak.

    Just looked it up, doesn't look like the off road type though, sadly.

    Have some of you guys switched to PC? Would like to join you guys, if time allows, for some offroading :)

    Currently only own a stock Sandking SWB, but it should be good enough :D

    I have the PC version now, but will be modding it when the mods start rolling in. So won't be going online.

    We should do a PC meetup. If anyone wants to add me, my tag is LC_Menair I enjoy a bit of off-roading. My go to (even though it's not very good) is this, because...just look at it.

    The Barracks is surprisingly awesome off road. I easily crossed obstacles that gave even the Mesa quite a bit of trouble.

    Dat articulation & 6 wheel drive

    It cant climb steep hills as well as the Sandking nor Mesa, but damn it can crawl over enormous objects no problem. The front bumper doesn't seem to clip, so it actually has a pretty monstrous approach angle.

    As soon as I have my PC running again (probably in about 1 - 2 weeks), I'll be reinstalling GTA V, and probably try out the "offroad experience" with my G27.

    Gonna add you asap, @Eunos_Cosmo
