Description

The Chevrolet 3100 is a model that came from the Chevrolet Advance Design Series of pickup trucks that spanned from 1947 to 1955, being eventually succeeded by the Chevrolet Task Force Series. Succeeding the Art Deco Series, half-ton trucks were classified as the 3100 within the Advance Design, which was also featured in the Task Force Series of trucks. Styling and design cues included headlamps that were incorporated into the broad-shouldered front fenders, a windshield fixed in place, wipers placed on the cowl, and grilles that were similar to Chevrolet's passenger cars at the time, sporting 5 curved horizontal bows instead of the previous series' upright grilles. The Advance Design trucks also had a greater focus on driver comfort, with a wider cap, scoop-type vents, greater visibility, and better sound insulation

The Advance Design and Task Force Series share internal parts, both had the option for a 235 cubic inch 3.9 litre Inline 6, as well as a 3 or 4 speed manual. The Advanced Design light trucks started off with 216-cu straight six engines until 1954, where that was replaced by the more modern 235 as the standard engine. Options for transmissions included a four speed, and in 1954, a heavy duty 3 speed and the Hydra-Matic automatic were also offered.

The Advance Design was eventually succeeded by the Task Force Series of trucks, where the 3100 also was produced within this series (See Chevrolet 3100).

Overview

Being one of the original vehicles in the base game, the Chevrolet 3100 "Pickup" is actually a class-A monster truck, and is not to be confused with the Chevrolet 3100 which is a class-C pickup. The Chevrolet 3100 Pickup needs Class-A Blueprints 30 to unlock, and starts at a rank of 19. Oil changes cost Credits 250 each, and take an hour to be completed.

Instead of being from the Task Force series its pickup variant is derived from, the 3100 Pickup is based off of the Advance Design series of 3100 trucks, making it the older variant of the two. The 3100 Pickup has been fitted into a monster truck frame, and features a ladder on the driver's side of the truck, custom exhausts, and a bulbar at the front. Due to the design of the frame, the 3100 Pickup is now considered to be a mid engine vehicle, due to the engine's bug catcher protruding from the flat bed.

Performance

The Chevrolet 3100 is one of the many supposedly high class vehicles that suffered from a poor transition from the previous car ranking system prior the the Coachella Update. Post-Coachella update, the 3100 is now a lackluster class A monster truck that is largely overshadowed by its similar Class-A competitors, being the GMC Vandura, Chevrolet El Camino 1980, and to a lesser extent, the Ford Mustang Mach 1. The 3100 Pickup does not have any major strengths and weaknesses, but lacks overall pace on every aspect. Acceleration, top speed, nitro duration, nitro power, airspeed potential, and drift radius, while each not being particularly horrible for its archetype, are also not exceptional in any way either. The 3100's best aspect can perhaps be its steering response and feel, being fairly reliable and easy to manage.

Being a Class-A car, the 3100 Pickup is restricted to Level 35, where it is completely overshadowed by every Class-A monster truck, as well as lower-class monster trucks at the same level (With the possible exception of the Volkswagen Type 2 (T1)). At this rank, the 3100 Pickup's lack of strengths puts it behind the El Camino, Vandura, and Mach 1. with all 3 being excelling in at least one aspect the 3100 does not. It also is behind the Chevrolet Bel Air and Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Monster due to the former having better acceleration, and the latter having decent acceleration coupled with a higher top speed for the archetype. The 3100 can be useful on tracks where monster trucks are favored, but players are better off with the superior alternatives available at this rank. Multiplayer usage is very questionable, as knockdowns are not guaranteed, making the already slow 3100 Pickup struggle even more to make up for its flaws.

At level 50, the 3100 Pickup does not shake off its mediocrity, and remains a poor choice for anything apart from advancing in the career. As the upgrade in performance does not scale up very well, the 3100's top speed and overall pace lags behind of what the Silverado Monster can offer in Time-limited events, and its acceleration also is not on the level of either the Bel-Air or the El-Camino 1980 so it isn't a strong option for MP either. It also doesn't gain a massive overclock bonus Class-S cars do, so it doesn't even have that going for it either. With such mediocre performance, the only tracks where the 3100 can do well on are those that are heavily tolerant to the various flaws it has. Forbidden Oasis and Temple Race are examples of the very few tracks where the 3100 can put some semblance of a fight, but even still is going to be seconds behind the best monster trucks in the game, and if the track does not favor monster trucks, the 3100 is practically useless in it.

Continuing the pattern of unremarkable statistics, the speed modification is nothing special for the archetype, although decent when compared to other archetypes. Ultimately, even with Extra Tank Extra Tank, which is a questionable choice for monster trucks due to the short nitro duration, can't bring up the top speed to a competitive level. Airspeed, while effective, is also nothing special.

In terms of time-limited events, the 3100 Pickup at least has some use, although very little, and is obsolete once the player acquires better options. The 3100 Pickup is restricted to only Class-S championships which means that it can't even be used for a majority of the reoccurring time limited events, further hampering what little use it has.

Despite being below average in almost all aspects of performance, the 3100 Pickup is surprisingly difficult to find its own Class-A blueprints, not considering the difficulty of finding class-A tools. Even if it was possible to fully upgrade the 3100 Pickup, it is strongly not recommended, as the Chevrolet El-Camino 1980 is a more useful, albeit buggy alternative that also need 28 rank up tools, and has its blueprints readily available through its own exclusive box during its championship.
