    TROLL CAR THREAD

    Discuss your latest creations here, talk about the set ups of the cars for the task at hand or share ideas about posssible new masterpieces.

    What is a troll car?
    A troll car is similar to a sleeper.
    A slow looking car that is quite fast or it is a stupid looking car that can win races or just looses control without even trying.

    What makes a troll car?
    A troll car does not really need to be pink
    Has to look stupid(ie Carbon Fiber hoods on Micro cars)
    have exessive camber.
    Big wings on cars that don't need them.(ie Front wheel drives)
    Big wings on small cars that make the car look even more stupid.
    A old car or kei car that has been fully tuned.
    Its paint while it doesn't have to be pink but any stupid color, pink is used as a insult to injury factor(lets face it, who wants to be beaten by a pink car?).

    [​IMG]
    This picture shows a Honda N360 and a Subaru 360 that both can get 38second lap times on Autumn Ring Mini
    While larger cars with more power can get better times, these sub 150hp cars are very light and tuned for track racing.
    [​IMG]
    This Fiat 500 is just tuned to wheelie, it has very poor brakes and handling so it is not a wise choice for track racing, but a good way to get lolz on drag racing lobbies.

    The main weaknesses of a Kei Troll car is its lack of power, they are very good on tight technical tracks where handleing and acceleration is most important rather than top speed.

    If you choose to use a electric vehicle as a troll car.
    Know this.
    You can not tune its performance.
    Its transmission may not be upgradeable from its CVT transmission

    If you choose a hybird, You still get some of the issues associated with EVs which is mainly transmission, some performance upgrades can be applied to them.

    There are dozens apon dozens of cars that can be made into troll cars.
    All you have to do is look, imagine and have the money, then the time to turn it into one.

    The name is taken. A Troll car is something they made in Norway many years ago.

    Edit: Here it is :)

    I'm subscribing to this thread.

    This here is my current favorite. I was kicked out a couple of times last night after winning some races against the likes of the Audi RS6 and Ford GT. Successful troll is successful.

    Sometimes you just gotta stop being so serious all the time and just have fun.
    And quite a number of these cars actually do handle well and laps pretty damn respectable times (as long as there aren't any long straight sections).

    AND the racing could get properly intense.
    I can send a couple of race replays if you don't believe me.

    I think a moderator should close this thread immediately, whereas trolling is seen as annoying other people online to the OP itself, and this should not be encouraged...! Having fun is one thing, annoying other people online, should not be on this site!

    Maybe you should consider to change the title of the thread or the so called cars?

    These cars aren't designed for ramming and being a twit.
    The term troll is the annoyance you cause you surprise someone with what normally is thought to be crap but end up being fast

    Annoying?

    I going to have to respectfully disagree with that and here's my reasons for so.

    The way I see it regarding trolling on GT5/6 is there is two types of trolling, the first kind is the troller intentionally 'messing with the set dressing' by using X1s or the Tank car and ramming other players and being a royal pain in the backside.

    The second type is taking something like Fox's Pink 360 or my Gold Midget and basically being the Joker of the Lobby and just having fun racing them. The only difference is that the second type can only be annoying if you let them (I.e refusing to accept one beating you etc)

    End of the day though, I can't change what you think about it all because it's your opinion and everyone's got a right to one. :tup:

    'Troll' cars are just pointless and ridiculous in my opinion.

    This however..vv... is the coolest and funniest part of the whole thread.

    LOL just LOL! So your saying for example, racing on Deep Forrest if one of my mates runs a Skyline and another runs an Evo, then I should not be allowed to run a pink Daihatsu that I know can be just as fast around the circuit? Is that correct?

    I have many troll cars, and the group of lads I race with absolutely love when I bring one of them out. Some even ask me for details on the car so they can go make their own version. I don't ram or anything like that. In fact I race as clean as possible with them. We even held a troll/beater meet the other night to take a break from serious racing.

    Apart from potentially being upset because their pride and joy is being thrashed by a pink P.O.S, 'serious' racers have nothing to complain about.

    If anyone's so upset about these 'troll cars' that they complain about them, then they're probably about four.

    Enough with the word troll!!! Yet another term that no one uses in real life but seems to dominate internet forums. Pathetic.

    Since when could only 'real life' words be used on the internet? Internet language pervades spoken language more and more these days anyway, so I'd say troll car is perfectly valid. And beside, what word suits what these people are doing as well as 'troll(ing)'?

    If you want to get technical Troll is a word used quite commonly in real life. For example a person can call their mother in law an old troll. A man can call his ex wife a dirty troll, and there you see it can be used in many different ways.

    Also if you want to be even more technical Troll in this circustance is not a word it is a name. Trolling is the word.

    And another thing if you find it so pathetic why did you come in here to make a post? More to the point why did you even open the thread? Don't bother trying to digniry yourself with an answer as it would only serve to prove my point even more so than I have already!
