Anyone got any tips for the swing glitch to make you go higher and further??

So far i know that:

Using a blista usually gets you really far because of you being lighter and all.
Driving your car half way up the frame of the swing can get you further.

Is it possible to reach the river between the cities?

Ive just beaten my own record right now, i landed about 2 blocks from the river its great am in dukes, we must start posting pictures of were we land, al take a pic now if i can find the camera.

I've seen swings at other places, but they are surrounded by fences & I can't get a car in. I should try with a Patriot, as they seem to climb over everything.

Just reverse onto the middle and keep hitting the accelerator.
The biggest I have done it with so far is the Trashmaster, so far my furthest distance was with the Romero hearse. Using it I made it to the river.
Sometimes you will only go a few feet, other times for miles. Don't think everyone gets it first time or all the time, the vids you see are always the successful attempts. You never get to see the failures.

My top vid so far, no way I can possibly repeat it either as it is all by chance.

I find backing up to the swing and just touching it works for me, thats when i tend to get the most distance.

Well, i bash the swings until you see cracks underneath the poles, so it becomes alot looser.
After, i spawn a comet or use a blista and backup onto the middle pole, trying to get as far up as i can..
I made a few videos of me doing this, some of them are ok..
I have never got as far as the building outside the park.
Also, i can NEVER do it without a vehicle.. I did it twice, both times i died and didnt go hugely far.

Videos:

Video 1~
Video 2~

Video 2 contains POSSIBLY the highest swing glitch recorded.. check it out smile.gif
It is the last car, the red comet.

Sorry for the pathetic video quality, its hard moving your car whilst holding a mobile and the mobile isnt good anyway.

The Blista and the Futo are the two lightest cars in the game, followed by the Comet. The Comet, although 50kg heavier will probably fly more because it has a higher monetary value.

Tip: First run into the swings with some good force to get the chain moving, then back up and drive into the middle pole at a decent speed. If it's a RWD or 4WD, drive the front end up on the middle pole until it's in the air and get the car as vertical as possibly with out it falling/flipping. If the car is FWD then back it into the pole. You need the wheels that are getting the power to stay on the ground so it keeps pushing it up the pole until it gets hit.

Lol, I've had the car catch on fire in the air, but sadly no explosion on landing. It'd be awesome, just like your video. Nice one! icon14.gif
There's some serious forces going on with the swings, it can smash a car in have or launch it 100's of feet... crazy.

Try parking a car between the swing and the iron fence on left side of the the swing. There is a bench in the way, but you can smash it (or blow it up).

My favorite is pushing someone to start a fight, then lure them so they are pushing against the middle frame of the swing while trying to punch you. "I'm going to kick your - UGHH!" At one point I had a pile of guys in the corner and a few hanging on the fence. A medic came to try and revive him and he went "Ughh.." and flew out of sight. One of the fat guys got chucked across the street and he went 'splat' against the building.

One time I drove a hooker up there. If you didn't know, while she does her deed you can still drive the car very slowly, so I drove it into the swing while she was in full action and the car got chucked into the projects which threw us both through the windshield and killed us.

Fun stuff. My wife thinks I'm nuts, cackling away by myself in the living room at 1a.m.

Every other set of swings I've seen doesn't react when touched. I think the ones we all know about are the only ones that aren't quite positioned correctly, so they're the only ones reacting with the collision code.
