    A Civic SiR doesn't have the low-down torque required to punch away from a stop or through barricades. The double wishbone suspension and low ride height also won't take curb-jumping very well.

    A Lynx RS has more torque for ramming, but it's unsuited to the role... needs bullbars or an extra wide steel bumper insert behind the plastic one.. The suspension is stiffer, and at stock height it has more curb clearance, but you'll need to change the wheels out for smaller ones with taller tires for curb jumping. You'll ruin the ball joints by the end of the chase, but it'll do it. Changing out to less grippy tires will also enable you to do J-Turns and 360s... which are difficult on the stock tires, because the rear end of the RS is much grippier than the SiR's.

    Problem with the RS: Too damn conspicuous. Hard to hide in traffic.

    If it weren't so damn rare, the Sentra 200 would be perfect. See below:


    Fantastic handling, stiff suspension, huge trunk. Enough tire sidewall to jump a curb successfully. Not as ungodly low as a Subaru or as large as a Cruze or a Lancer. Lots and lots of torque. J-Turn? 180? Burn-out? You want it, you got it. And the big square cabin ensures that you and your homies can cruise around with shotguns/rifles loaded and upright instead of between your knees.

    A new-ish pick-up is good. Running hot and hard in a police chase in low-speed traffic will probably ruin your turbo and cook the bearings, but not before you get away. A 3.0 Ranger is perfect for this... the Ranger has better ramming power and suspension toughness than most. It's also narrower than the Hilux, and handling is fantastic, despite the garbage tires. Top end is better on some other pickups, but you need acceleration in a police chase... and the Ranger has tire-squealing acceleration a-plenty, as well as the ability to perform fast 180 degree turns thanks to the rear LSD.

    You will still need a bullbar (a real one... not those pathetic muffler-shop stainless bolt-ons that cave in and poke your radiator after one hit because they're not triangulated...) or preferably a full ARB front bumper for ramming action, however... and the Ranger is not as anonymous as the Hilux, which is probably a better choice in tight Metro situations because of this.

    -

    The perfect vehicle, however, is a Revo or a Tamaraw. Absolutely anonymous. Tough underpinnings. No 4WD, but can still jump curbs. Narrow enough to weave through traffic. And best of all, you can do a movie style switcheroo... use changing license plates and peel-away stickers to change looks. Leave the scene of the crime as a plain white Revo/Tamaraw... enter a parking garage... exit garage as a Revo/Tamaraw FX service, complete with a taxi light bar.

    -

    Then again... nothing beats motorcycles. Incredibly hard to pursue, easy to ditch and walk away from without people noticing or commenting. And so cheap you can buy a new set of secondhand bikes for every bank heist.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    May papalag?
    :jawdrop: nice nice nice hehehe

    Hehe this thread got me thinking, several cars came into mind but you said realistic. Realistically, traffic will bog you down...If im gonna commit a crime lets say assassinate someone, its easier to get away by just blending in with the crowd. So for me best getaway vehicle is your comfortable running/walking shoes.

    But this is a car thread so lets talk about cars for me any small and nimble car and can swerve in between spaces, that can reach at least 150km/h and has high ground clearance so that you can go over center islands just in case you got stuck in your lane, then counter flow then get back to your original lane after the traffic has been passed. Maganda rin sana kung may sunroof para your partner in crime can shoot back, comfortably Kahit RPG sakto lang i aim from the sunroof. Baon ka din ng spikes para pag high speed na itapon mo sa dadaanan ng mga pulis. Also equip your car with a button that releases oil slicks

    Di na kelangan, yung oil spill mechanism mo lang puwede na dahil matulin yan at sa traffic jam sa MM, hindi ka na mahahabol kahit nung mga naka-motor pang pulis.

    Kapag alanganin na talaga, gaya ng sabi mo, iwan mo na lang sa tabi at maglakad ka na lang ng pa-simple.

    Di puwede yan, masyadong takaw pansin eh.
