It's called: video game bullsh*t.

For some reason, Rockstar decided to make cop cars the best cars in the game, as long as the cops are driving them.

Yeah, I hate that sh*t, too. I just try to juke them instead of outrunning them (as you probably know). They're extremely stupid and sometimes lazy because they won't go off road most of the time. I had five stars yesterday and I parked on a hill and I was knocking down helicopters with my AP Pistol, and I noticed all the cops parked on the road below me and came up on foot. Idiots...

it's due to the cops themselves not the cop cars , any car a cop gets in to chase you it will suddently go fast as f*ck.

maybe it is the "nos" feature players used to mod with the save editor, maybe it's just meant for cops and ai and not for us.

it would explain why cops crash stupidly if you happen to make a turn while they rush for you.

they cheat and have unlimited speed, however if you look at them they cannot cheat and often stop at stoplights or crash into sh*t, however its kinda hard to drive when you are looking backwards, try it and practice, especially going around corners and you will lose them easily.

I know.The only things that have a chance of escaping cops on the road are supers and high-end sports.

Has been in every GTA game, no matter how fast your car is, cop cars always win (total bs)

When police get near you press B or circle. The view will go "cinematic" to a dashboard cam on the cop car. If you immedietly switch back the view the police should slam on their brakes. No idea why this happens. But i once hit B in a chase and was like "wtf is going on?" And when I swapped view back to normal the police car stopped suddenly causing others to accidentally ram into him instead.

cops turn extra special retard when you travel on railroad tracks

seems that they loose sight of you somehow very easily, and if you make it to a tunnel or underground or something then you can wait them out

Rubberbanding (or dynamic game difficulty balancing for you wordsmiths out there.) It's been in video games forever and it's prominent in games with driving and racing.

1) Because the designers decided that they wanted the Police to still be a threat even if you had a fast car;

2) Because you don't turn corners, go down side streets, go off-road or switch cars enough.

Which is why when the cops are chasing you, you don't want to be on the highway or some other long stretch of road. Get a turismo fully lowered and head for the hills. They still handle like sedans, so you end up with cops in front of you finding out that you are nothing but a ramp, and cops behind you will be flying whenever there is a curve in the road.

 

It really is a shame we don't have a rearview mirror because those guys take an awful amount of abuse once you get up to 3 stars.

Because the cop cars have something in their engine called Magnetic Turbo which can suck in the air from you slipstream from over a mile away which makes the cop cars move faster than light.

 

Just Kidding :lol:. Because Rockstar want to make it a challenge to outrun them so they give them the special 'Rubber Banding' ability, Hopefully you get what I mean by this, Rockstar try to make a realistic game yet still give the cops a really unfair advantage.

 

Logic at it's finest :breadfish:.

It's just the stupid game design.For instance,I was a part from a livestream recently and we were wandering around Fort Zancundo and as you can expect-loads of wanted levels.

It appears that tanks can get out of the base so they can chase wanted players.And this tank that I was looking at was as fast as a fully customised Oracle for example.

I don't know, but this just started happening to me yesterday. Never before has a cop car actually rammed my Entity and now they can?

I'm pretty sure it's been part of the game since the start.

not anymore, they fixed that.  they spawn in and will drive through tunnels now and if you have 3 stars the choppers can see and shoot you through the ground if you are sitting still in a tunnel, complete bullsh*t! 

 

They have always been able to do it and looking at them via pressing r3 prevents them from doing so.  they also mimic your every move so its best to use r3 every so often while turning and especially going around corners.  this will cause them to randomly stop and crash and you will lose them every time.  The same thing works in missions when vehicles chase you with impossible speed.

 

Another thing to note is that the fewer players in a session the harder the cops will come after you, in sessions with many people there isnt enough processing power to spawn lots of them and they are way less effective, lol!

 

If you try this trick you will be amazed at how easy it is to escape from the cops even with slow crappy vehicles.
