it happened to me earlier......

I had a mugger pull out a tank operator,

so naturally I approached the tank in a vehicle to retrieve it,

I was going too fast and was about to hit the tank,

you know *BOOM*

so I hit the brakes, my car came to sliding stop (a cheetah for specifics)

slightly catching under the front side of the tank

and all of a sudden I am 200 feet in the air flipping like crazy,

across the other side of the freeway.....

I didn't go back to test this out again,

has this happened to anyone else?

Sounds a bit like the flying car gate glitch, that's great fun. Cars can get caught and flipped on things sometimes. It's not happened to me with a tank but once I drove my entity at full pace head on into a fire truck being driven by a friend straight at me. Just at the point of contact I jumped out the car and my character was catapulted about 1000ft into the air and I parachuted down. That was fun, only happened the once.

What about wall breach falling in the nothingness below the map.

My record and first time it went on almost forever. Until I got tired and got out of the car.

I have 26 flips in one jump and 69 barrel rolls. When I spawned on the map I was all the way by my.chilliad

I'm going to try again.

Try looking on youtube for the tutorial video, I cant remember the exact name now. He said he was trying for 4 or 5 hours! The best house to use I found was the one in that video where you can line the car up to the right of a tree and aim the left front wheel at the gatepost.

 

1st time I was trying for like 20mins with a friend in the car and only got 1 good launch then after he left I just got the knack and 4 or 5 in a row, it was brilliant!. Can do it with another person in as well now but it's harder than with no passenger. I use Entity for it.

yup ive seen the video a few times but theres no "exact science" to it... we did find that ramming the gate as it was opening/closing made it start glitching a bit more

 

was really frustrating for my mate as he didnt get a good launch... i got 1 really decent one after 10 mins of trying, just as the car started to fall back down. bailed out to freefall.. pull my chute at the last second and landed next to the flaming wreck of a sentinel that id jsut jumped out of.... needless to say my mate wanted to look as cool as me... failed.. Muhahahaha

 

ill be trying it again soon but thats the exact spot we were using, as well as the house just south of michaels...

 

ps sorry to the op for slight hijack.. back to tank launches,,, im gonna try this too lol

i've been catapulted by driving into the train

got stuck underneath and it threw me away with great speed

did hit something so I didn't get a whole lot of distance

and I did get my car stuck under the train untill it exploded as well

but the train can launch you pretty fast as well

I was trying the gate glitch last night, without any luck.  I'd only been trying for about 15 minutes when some guy started hanging round and getting in the way, sitting in front or behind me and honking his horn like we were boyfriends.  It just bored me so I killed him and flew round in a Lazer for a while instead.  I might try again later, but I don't know what I was doing wrong so not sure what to do about it to make it right.

i was in my tank when i fire truck comes around the corner and sprays me with water. no big deal right?

not with this magic fire truck. as soon as the water hit my tank i start doing flips in the air and land upside down.

 

thats also the first time an npc controlled fire truck attacked my tank.

you can do this with the barracks too. Drive the tank into the barracks, slowly, with the barrel placed inside the covered seating area of the barracks (it's a fight to not say 'put the barrel in the rear'.. oh.). The barracks will explode, but the tank will go flying.

the cars can get catapulted near the driveway gates, havent tried it with tanks yet but thats how some people were getting top speeds in tanks on their character. 10000mph or something like that.

61,496.21 mph is my top speed now because of the tank launch glitch lol. It didn't even happen on purpose, I was trying to drive my ordered tank out of the police station with a 4 star wanted level and suddenly I was flying.
