Just curious, does anyone know which car has the best braking stat in GTA V (viewable when you go to Los Santos Customs)?
I have compiled a list using the Brady guide for GTA 5.
First, let's define the vehicle categories with the best braking stats. According to the guide:
- Ships including the submarine, as well as all Helicopters have the maximum value of 10/10 for braking.
- Bicycles come in second with a maximum of 5 points,
- Motorcycles have a maximum of 4.5 points.
- Cars, with a maximum of 3.5 points (tuning/modding not included).
- Planes are dead last with 2.5 points for one plane only, all other planes have a measly score of 1 point (the minimum is 0.5 points, so they aren't quite dead last).
Now that we've established a hierarchy, let's talk about the top of each category.
Like I said before, all ships and helicopters have maximum score, so there's no point in listing the winners here.
Among the bicycles, there is one winner, the BMX with 5 points. Aside from the Fixter with its abysmal 0.5 points, all other bicycles have either 4 or 4.5 points.
The motorcycles category has quite a number of winners (with 4.5 points):
- Dinka Double-T,
- Nagasaki Carbon RS,
- Pegassi Bati 801,
- Pegassi Bati 801RR
- Shitzu PCJ 600 .
Last place goes to the Pegassi Faggio with 1.5 points followed by the Western Daemon with 2 points. The rest range between 3.5 and 4 points.
Before we come to cars, I'd like to congratulate the (Crop) Duster for its "amazing" 2.5 points; the only plane to not score 1 point in braking.
Now comes the category everybody's been waiting for, the cars: Winners with 3.5 points are
- HVY Barracks Semi (surprisingly)
- Canis Bodhi (Trevor's car)
- Nagasaki Blazer (even though it behaves like a bike during crashes, it's got 4 wheels, so I consider it a car)
- Dewbauchee Rapid GT
- Benefactor Surano
- Bravado Banshee
- Obey 9F
- Obey 9F Cabrio
- Coil Voltic (the only car I know that's more or less silent)
- Pegassi Vacca and
- Truffade Adder
Dead last (with 0.5 points) are:
- Dock Handler,
- HVY Dozer,
- (Golf) Caddy.
Aside from the JoBuilt Hauler, the JoBuilt Phantom (both 2.5 points), the Firetruck (1.5 points) and the military HVY Barracks Semi (one of our winners), all trucks (including buses) have 1 point.
Please keep in mind that my answer is based off a work that is not related to Rockstar and may contain mistakes (I definitely found some while I used it).
