You've got to know the rules before you can break 'em. Otherwise, it's no fun.

Are you tucking when you're going straight? It makes a big difference.

gently caress tucking, pull back and do a wheelie on straights, makes you go faster than tucking.

Of course it also matters how you drive into and out of the corners.

This is literally a straight line. Heading down the highway to a mission objective and sanchez bro just blows past me. He then wiped out immediately on contact with a car so I still got there first but it's the principle.

It's kind of a double edged sword because on one hand they make some cars feel a lot better in the corners, but they also look like trash on a lot of cars.

I've been playing any random job that comes up the last few days (mostly survival or actual missions, racing bores me) and I finally have like $250k. What safehouses are the 'best' in terms of proximity to good stuff? I like the idea of having a little pad out in Paleto Bay or Blaine County, but the idea of having to drive for 10+ minutes from there to anything worthwhile every time I log on is unappealing. I don't care about it being a penthouse or whatever, just a nice little spot with a decent garage for a few cars

I would actually say that the expensive safehouses are a waste of money - I have a $450K apartment that apart from its 10 car garage is entirely useless. There is a $180-210kish 10 car garage to the west of the airport that is 30 seconds from a Los Santos Customs, a few minutes from an AmmuNation and well you're next to the airport so planes/choppers ahoy.

If you want the full 10-car apartment, I'd say Alta St would be the best choice, right around the corner from the big downtown ammunation, not too far from LSC, and directly down the road from the airport if you want to get your airplane on. Also the cheapest 10-car apartment with a view that isn't the side of another building at $223k (there's a cheaper one in the same building but that's only $10k less)

If you just want a garage though, there's a 10-car one over on the east side of town, Popular St Unit 2 I think, that's literally a 5 second drive from the eastern LSC. That's $142k

These are exactly what I have for properties, and both work perfectly for me. Alta St is also close to Mors if need be as well. And from one property to the other is a quick jaunt across a bridge.

That's Alta street. That's my main base of operations as well. My other 10-car garage was near the airport, but now I've got the 6-car right next to Ft. Zancudo. It's super conveniently placed directly behind a convenience store and Ammunation too.

If it was a Pubbie you'd never have got that far. They would have somehow figured out a way to fail the mission before you even arrived at the buzzard.

How did you get your mini map like that? I was trying to do that - managed to get it extended but I can't figure out how to turn off player names. When the names are labeled it's such a mess you can't actually see anything in a cluster of people

You still have to drive them over if you want to put them in the other garage.

What I meant was that if I wanted to rearrange a garage before, I would have to drive the cars back and forth from one garage to the other to get them in the order I wanted them.

If it was a pubbie they would never have been on my bike. There's a setting for the radar - "Expanded" It's under the on / off / blip setting I believe.

At the back of your garage is a blue point and it brings up your garage manager so you can rearrange the cars in your preferred order.

It's just a shame we can't store golf carts... those things can surprisingly move well.

Hysterical! If we can use our experience as a case study, Jax turned out just fine - he's probably Getting to the Bottom of Something as we speak.

I expanded the map, but the player names are still there - the settings for the radar are on/off/blip but that didn't get the names.

It's slightly confusing, there's the 'Radar' setting you mentioned that's On/Blip/Off, but there's also 'Expanded Radar' a bit further down the Settings menu. Changing that to On should give you the big minimap without the nametags

e: Unless you somehow managed to get nametags on at all times with that enabled, in which case I'm stumped AND want to figure out how to turn that on

I'd love of someone could figure out the way to get the big map to have names. I have done it but I didn't know how and wasn't really paying attention since it was like a day after launch. I'd love that right now

I actually just grabbed the little Paleto Bay house facing the ocean with the 6-car garage (which looks suspiciously like a 2-car garage from the outside) just because I wanted some place where I don't spawn amid twenty crazed pubbies and I like that area

Will definitely check out the Alta St. place later, though.
