The Hot Rod is the one of two revamped renditions in Burnout Revenge of the Hot Rod from Burnout 2: Point of Impact with the other being the Custom Classic. It is one of numerous ultimate vehicles in Burnout Revenge as it is one of the vehicles with a high Crashbreaker rating and also one of the fastest cars.
The steering with this vehicle is really stiff, as it can drift off on its own without the brakes being pressed, and results in unintentional drifts and making the driver struggle to get it back straight again. This isn't a very good thing when racing, but the weight of the vehicle makes this fit for Road Rage.
The understeer the Hot Rod gets is barely maintainable at a full steer. The other flaw is that the Hot Rod is its high jumping abilities. While drivers may get more boost using this off jumps, this can be a bad thing if the jump includes obstacles.
For online, the Hot Rod, as well as its brother, are one of the most avoidable choices due to its performance and statistics.
The chassis and wheel colors are only changeable in the PlayStation 2 and Xbox releases. The available wheel colors are silver, red, blue, gold, and black, while the chassis can be changed to red, blue, or silver.
