Sultan / Sultan RS

#1AxelPoePosted 10/26/2013 10:37:36 PM
So I been wanting a good 4WD.
People pointed me to a Sultan.
So I went out and found one and gave it a full upgrade.
Then I saw a video stating a Sultan RS...
Are there two types of Sultan cars or am I missing something?

If you have full upgrade, look on read quarter panel, should say sultan rs...

Sultan turns into sultan rs with certain upgrades made.

I don't believe I know much about cars... so correct me if I'm wrong.
But... 4WD is the same as AWD, right?

There is only a sultan. Upgrading it makes it look like the sultan RS.

AWD = 4WD

AWD does Equal 4WD.

the reason both are used it that AWD isnt normally used to explain cars drivetrain. its normally used for trucks where they could be 6WD ETC

Actually 4WD and AWD are different in real life, but I don't know if it applies to the game.

AWD lets the 4 wheels spin independently of one another, while 4WD has all 4 wheels spinning at the same speed. 4WD is for limited traction surfaces only, like snow or dirt. This allows one of the wheels to drag across the ground slightly as you turn the vehicle. If you use 4WD on dry pavement , you will break your differentials. That is why vehicles with a 4WD option require you enable it manually.

I doubt this difference applies to the cars in game though.

EDIT: I forgot to add that the Sultan is great. It was the first car I ever upgraded, and it will be in the 1st slot of my garage forever. Once you get used to its handling it drives like it's on rails. It is also nearly indestructible, even without armor. I have never seen smoke come out of it ever, and it still drives fast and straight even when crushed into a cube. It is the only 4-door that I have tried though, so I cant speak for the other ones.
