I've noticed that, when I'm going to Madrazo's house to give him the document, cars just happen to spawn right in front of me when driving and I crash, so I take longer to get my cash than usual. Has this happened to anyone else?

I don't like flying because you lose 1k from calling merryweather IMO.

I don't know yet. when I did it yesterday afternoon, it was normal.

It takes me 3 minutes more or less, alone, with no major problems.

Drive a bit slower, or kill off the people in the four suvs that spawn after you pick up the briefcase and sunday drive back.

   I just avoid the cars, its something like 3 to 5 intersections that are really heat before you go up "Vinewood Hills..I believe" and its pretty smooth just before than;  cars are always going left and right so I just tap the breaks and accelerate to let them pass instead of trying to Paul Walker/Vin Diesel inb4 t-bone's.  I basically assume they will meet me mid intersection based on spawn proximity and npc panic.

It's damn annoying OP.
After doing it a few times, you get better at anticipating when the game's going to f*ck with you and always release the gas before a junction to give you a bit more breathing space.
All these posters saying helis are faster need to learn to drive y'all. :p
There's no way a heli's quicker than a maxed out Entity.


Or maybe I need to learn how to fly. XD

I hop in my Entity and try to take the best possible shortcuts. When you start go directly to the Red car park, When you reach there take a right and go In directly then get out from the other side and take another right and then an immediate left and go straight to the destination but before you reach there there will come 2 turns in the hills one goes to the left and other to the right. The map says go to the right but take the left and you will reach faster.

You have to drive a supercar. Most of the time, the ennemy Granger doesn't bother me.

I did that mission so much times now that I know where the Granger will appear according to the position of my car, so I can avoid it quite easily.

I did one tonight where the guy driving took the stunt jump ramp behind the boat dealer and put us up on the freeway. As we drove away all the suvs spawned on the streets below and traffic was never a problem.

Me and a friend had a race one time, I took his FM Infernus and he took the merryweather chopper, with the pilot in tact.

 

The car arrived about 10 seconds before the heli. 

 

For me, I always take the merryweather chopper, call him up straight away, run round the back of the garage kill all the guys, grab the package and race to the chopper, quick GPS the end point and hit Go on the pilot, do whatever else you like for a minute then paradrop to the finish.

 

For the sake of 10-15 seconds maybe, I cba driving where I can only lose time from then on with crashes and such.

I think flying is easier because of the fact that there are no distractions.

Spending 200 dollars on a chopper insults my integrity, its honestly the shortest distance/drive to Martins..

People usually faint due to an overload of YoloSwag when they hear my GT.
But I'll post it anyways:

Back to OP's topic. I've noticed when doing this that random drivers will pull into me as well. Crossing two lanes of on coming traffic to hit me. Not the red dot Grangers, actual npc drivers. I noticed this starting after the 1.10 patch. There are also some that must have rockets attached to their cars cause they are breaking the sound barrier with their speed.

Frogger is the best heli if you're not fixing to get into a fight.
