Just did a race via quick job came in 2nd got $270 however the fee for the race was $300 which is bs remove the fracking fees on racing Rockstar.  Now unless you win or host you're losing money.  They should also make it so you can buy the engine mods etc for a higher fee if you don't want to grind 50 wins my second characters never getting a fully modded car.

I assume you just tried Criminal Records.

Do a real race, you wimp.

Losing money by racing should NEVER happen unless you bet the money.  R* needs to rethink the rewards.

Ya it costs money now... on another note Elegy R8 is now free and you can purchase Body Armor and Stickies.

 

Edit*

Seriously 2 people?  LoL.. all missions have always taken an entry fee bros.  Check your Social Club and look at Entry Fees... you've paid out your ass.

There has always been an entry fee for certain jobs. $200 for survival, where in wave 8+ you can pick up 2 sticky bombs that re spawn before the end of the wave. There's more than one pickup as well.

It's th prinicple of the matter, not the money involved. Losing money in a race is bullsh*t.

Rockstar is like the IRS needing their greedy hands on every cent.  Paying to do something and netting no profit is bs whether its $30 or $3000.  Many of simeons and geralds jobs net you nothing after you factor in the ammo or grenades etc you used.  This games gonna die fast unless they let the players start filing bankruptcy

For serious, band together and help file a class action lawsuit against Rockstar! What they've done is advertised one thing and provided another (now that the changes have hit). The game is technically a lemon (the online version of it), and they're required to either fix it or refund us the price of the game due to it being unplayable. False advertising as well, should be factored in and if a dent is made, we can actually take away every cent of their profits from GTA for what they've done.

It is perfectly playable. Stop being ridiculous.

I thought that there was only an entry fee if you didn't use a custom car. Could totally be wrong on that though.

 

Either way, I'm not sure I'm understanding the payouts at this point. I know they tweaked it for time taken to complete, but when some people are saying that they got a vastly different payout than someone else... Something's up. Take "The Commute" for example, where some people are saying that they came in first and only got like $1000 and some people are saying they got like $8000.

I think if you walk in off the street to a race you get the higher pay outs.

Why try to make sense out of something that has none?

Because there's still some kind of reason why people are seemingly getting different payout amounts, and I don't know about you man, but I'd definitely like to know why. I love racing, so I'll do it regardless, but I'd still kind of like to maximize my income.

Good luck with that. Just remember ... your mommy will have to sign where it says "person over 18."

I can not believe this game has been out for almost 2 months and people are just realizing you've been paying an entry fee for races (and jobs, missions, etc).
