so, this is a very easy way to beat brucie's street races, so if you want the achievement for it, but you suck at driving, here is a nice trick to get it.

But just to let you know, this method is VERY cheap, so please, don't flame me for it tounge.gif

Yup this video was found before. I think by gamesguru or markiij. They didn't make it though.

Another good method is to drive to the other island, cruise around for a while and the other opponents will disappear too. Then go to the start line and all the racers will be gone. Well most of them. When I did this, there was only once racer who showed up later in the race. I also some other racers driving around but they weren't on course. This method takes longer than the method shown in the video though.

You can also get out of the car and shoot one or two of the opponents car tyres to give you an advantage if you still want to race them, but if you shoot more than two tyres you get a message saying the race has been sabotaged.

I tried going to one in a helicopter once, upon attempting to land at the grid, I took out one of the other cars with a blade, and I was actually winning until they went into a tunnel.

The method in the video never works for me. When I call to cancel the race the arrow dissapears too, so I can't start the race. What's up with that? Did I do something wrong?

You sure u do it right?

First time I tried (or tryed??) it, I talked to Brucie instead of quit when the phone is calling...


YOu have to call Brucie, and when the Phone is dialing the number, just press O (when you on PS3). I mean: just quit calling after the phone dialed !

...But the races are so easy. Grab an Infernus, or even a Blista Compact for that matter you'll win pretty much every time. (LOL, I lost my Comet from Brucie's "No. 1" mission, I think someone pushed it out of the save spot)

at the first video, why should you cheat anyway? Judging by the cars that are standing at the starting line, you have to race against SUV's and other small cars that couldn't match up with the Turismo.

If you want to be first off the line, drive around the outside of the other competitors, so you are at the front. Now reverse and tap one of the other racer's bumpers. The race will start and you'll be in first. Enjoy.

Here's an easy way to defeat them too: drive fast but not reckless. You could have the slowest car in the race and as long as you drive safely and effectively it's near impossible to lose since the A.I. can't keep the vehicle on the road to save their lives.

Brucies races are the easiest thing to do in GTA IV because the other drivers are incompetent and all they do is crash and get stuck somewhere

How to easily win any race:
-Grab a Comet(optional, even a f*cking Biff should do it);
-Slam it(optional, I do it because it looks rad and improves handling);
-Start the race;
-Wait until every single moron crash on the first hairpin turn or into NPC traffic;
-Take the lead;
-Casually waltz to the finish line.

I tried several methods to beat the first race.
Blocking cars with other cars - nope they disappear
Shooting 1-2 tires - nope get sabotage message with only one tire shot
Call Bruce's to cancel - Not even there is no quit or cancel race option. It leaves him or msg or if you hang up nothing happens

So what worked?

I pulled in front of the 2 cars on the right and backed into the front car hard. That knocked the cars back favor enough to start the race with me in front!

After that I drove carefully taping the brake very lightly because otherwise the comet goes into a spin. Slow down on corners, use the b button to see the next turn, and don't fall into the drainage pipe/valley thing on the right. If you fall in there the race is over because brick walls and high slopes keep you from getting out. I fell I there while in. 1st place and almost rage quit, lol. The next race I won.

Yeah that last turn onto the main straight has seen many a 1st placer come undone. Slow down on that last corner then fly to the finish. Also remember a lot of the time they all crash into each other on that really tight corner just before the course heads under the raised train tracks.

Having to use trainers? This is sad. The races are damn easy in GTA IV.
