What do you mean you can't 'get him to twist'? I'm not sure why he'd die after you finish the race, unless you're trying to blow up his car, which I'm quite sure would mean failure of the mission.

Well, barring any glitch you're experiencing, if you're having trouble just beating him outright, I suggest trying to ram the backside of his car from the side, spinning him out. The best place to do it would probably be on the second straight-away, the one past the first bridge, where your wanted stars first pop up. You shouldn't be too far off him at that point, and can probably sideswipe him just enough to turn him around and buy you some distance. From there, if you don't get caught up in traffic or hit anything (try to use the handbrake for sharper turns), you should win with relative ease.

Also, if you would just like the mission completed for you, there is the Save N Play topic.

Are you on PC, I seem to recall an issue with the collision data causing hillary's car to fall through the road and into the water and drowing... I want to say it occurs on one of the bridges....

What I did on PS2 was get a 3 star wanted level prior to starting the mission-- this causes the police to use road spikes which pops hillary's tires (he won't drive around them) and it slows him down a bunch-- and he shouldn't get far enough in the race to reach the bridges--- when I did this (years and years ago), it took me 3 cars to finish the race and about 5 minutes (police beat the heck out of me).

I've also heard of parking a bus across the road near the police station effectively blocking him

Another thing you can try is parking a fast car like the Hotring racer at the first light after the start-- and swith cars to this one and race with this one... you will pass him early and should beat him handily.

If you park a vehicle as mentioned above, do not get in another one on the way to the Malibu as this may make them disappear.

If on PC you can also utilize save n play or timevault to pass the mission for you--- timevault is a mission passer code tool-- see pinned thread...

That's how I do it, with the Hotring racer as Spuds suggested. I park it with my back bumper touching the pole on the left side of the road just before the first right turn in front of the Police Station. The front of the car should be facing SW, blocking the left lane. RUN to the club from there and activate the mission.

Sometimes Hillary will smack into your racer slowing him down a little, but if not, no biggie. Once you switch cars you'll be much faster, making it a piece of cake to catch up and leave him in your dust. He wasn't even in my rearview when I finished the race.
