Posted 19 December 2016 - 12:45 AM Edited by Sagrawa, 19 December 2016 - 12:58 AM.

First off; thanks to http://gtaforums.com...-calimeatwagon/for the info gathered here http://gtaforums.com...knowledge-base/

 

I will explain here what the current best method is for money per minute, even per hour. Per minute is solo, per hour is with friends.

 

The steps without explanation:

 

Solo-

1. Source cars

2. Don't ever sell any of the Mid- or Standard Range cars.

3. Sell every top range car instantly, except for these which you have to sell as a collection:

-X80 Proto: M4K3B4ANK, T20: D3V1L, Osiris; SL33K

-Z-Type: B1GM0N3Y, Roosevelt Valor: 0LDT1M3R

4. Export to the specialist dealer for $100k

5. If possible; do this in a session with at least one other person because you won't get any A.I. opposing you in sales then.

 

With friends-

1. Source cars

2. Don't ever sell any of the Mid- or Standard Range cars.

3. Take turns in sales and sell only the Top range cars, but try to sell these as a collection:

-X80 Proto: M4K3B4ANK, T20: D3V1L, Osiris; SL33K

-Z-Type: B1GM0N3Y, Roosevelt Valor: 0LDT1M3R

4. Export to the specialist dealer for $100k

5. 5. If possible; do this in a session with at least one other person because you won't get any A.I. opposing you in sales then.

 

Also: When modding get a new spoiler for extra traction and off-road tires for taking curbs etc. for an easier ride.

 

 

Explained:

 

-When you have a certain percentage of your warehouse full with Mid- or Standard range cars, you will only get Top range cars to source.

-You can 'source' a car in an average of about 6 minutes (including having to go to your office tec.) and you can sell it in an average of about 2 minutes. The profit can be $80k per car, though you should expect to to take a few k in damage, so $75k per car.....that's $75k in 8 minutes! And you can do this three times each hour. $225k in 24 minutes and you still have 36 minutes to spend on other stuff.

-Selling collections is only profitable for the two I mentioned above. The difference in profit in selling a Top range car and Mid range car is $30k......Even the $50k bonus for some collections doesn't make up for that because there are at least two Mid- or Standard range cars in those.

 

-Selling with multiple people helps in getting more sales per hour because you can sell one car per 20 mins, but for each additional car you only get 10 mins added to the cooldown. 4 cars is a 50 min cooldown.

So, with friends, you can sell 4,8 cars an hour on average.

 

-4.8 cars x 6 mins = 28.2 mins

 4.8 cars x 2 mins = 9.6   mins

 Total = 37.8 mins

 4.8 x $75k= $360k

 4.8 x $5k?= $24k (not sure anymore what you get for helping...anyone know?)

Not even including the occasional bonus of the collections here.

 

That's $384k per hour with 22.8 mins to spend on other stuff!

This comes close to, or even tops,  grinding the PS finale.

 

Note: Times and damage are just an approximate....you may be a bit faster and have less damage if you're an expert or take a little bit more time and damage  if you're not taking it that seriously.

 

If I made some mistakes, explained poorly or if you have a good addition, let me know and I'll adjust it.

Nice, I haven't had the time an analysis yet, but this seems spot on. 

 

Another tip you should add is throw Off-Road tires on everything. Off-Road tires have the tallest sidewalls and end up handling bumps/curbs better.

Exactly!

Didn't forget;) Just didn't put it in there because for a lot of people it actually gets harder using the 'Bob because it does take some skill to master that.

He means that when you have supplies in your MC businesses, they will keep making making product even when you're selling cars as a CEO.

So you supply your MC businesses, then sell cars as CEO, and when the coke or meth etc. is ready you sell those as an MC president again.

The motorcycle club businesses run regardless of what you do as long as you're online. So stock up supplies for the mc, switch to ceo and do cars/crates. While you do the ars and crates, the motorcycle club business is turning supplies into product

To be clear, having just ONE non-ceo associate in your lobby calls off ALL AI attackers?

Yup, that's all it takes. Even if they are your friends and crew-members.

Unless they fix the random hook disconnect thing, I'm not taking chances. I dumped one car onto its roof and a friend dumped one into a swimming pool.

Can we get more info on this? Does it have to be both mid and standard at specific numbers or one or the other? ect

Started tonight with $320k, ended tonight, maybe 3 hours later, with $750k.

Feel like I didn't really do anything. For sure didn't grind. Just played the game.

I agree with this,  I just  made back the cost of the cheapest warehouse today, and it did not feel like grinding at all, in fact, ive had a blast with it.

 

Feels good to have broke even already on the start up cost of the this DLC.

1. Your solo and riends guides are exactly the same.

2. How does having another player in session remove attacks?

Idk why it works but it does. I did all my sell missions in full public lobbies today, and never saw an enemy.

Sounds good to me. If that works then more cash for us all. Are you seeing more attacks than from CEO or do people leave you be?

Other CEO's for the most part seem to be concerned with their own car thefts/sells. Lobbies vary greatly as usual though. Some good, some bad.

You can:)

You have 40 spots in the garage. The spots seem to be evenly pre-allocated to Standard- Mid and Top range cars, so 13 spots for each (leaving out the one).

When you have all the spaces filled for a certain range, you will only get cars to fill the other spots...so when you never sell the Standard- and Mid range cars, and only sell the Top range cars, you will only get to 'source' those Top range cars to even it out again.

Yeah, they're both -almost- the same, except for the crucial point nr3, where in solo play you want to sell immediately, whereas in a team you want to stack up and take turns in selling. Just made both guides to emphasize that one only difference.

yeah I think it s a good idea ... untill now I was selling whatever car I have .. maybe I need to fill up the warehouse with standart and low range cars , so that I only have high range cars as steal targets ( then I need to sell them right away) .... so for now , I´m not selling any standart and mid range cars ( except the ones belonging to collections of course ) ....nice strategy !

Good read but there still is some bullsh*t in it though.

1-not all time you equip offroad tires on a car it will actually help with kerbs.

2-the pacific standard can pay 400 -500k per 1.5 hour...if the team is great and the rockstar servers are with you and you start from invite only and such it can even be done in 1h15 minutes, making this not a heist killer by far.

Edit: esprcially since if working together...well it seems the payout of associates is still way lower then that.

Besides that i would be interested to know how long it takes to deliver when working with a cargobob.

Edit: aha...good to see its now in the right subsection :)

This is utter bullsh*t. Sultans aplenty in 20+ lobbies.

Still worth putting the off road tires on. Most people dont know which cars actually benefit from it and it doesn't make any difference for the sale, so might as well equip them for the small chance they may help.

Also, I don't mean to discount what you say about Pac Standard, but I have never seen it done that fast, I'm sure people do, but that is some elite perfect playing there. With the servers acting up, crap internet, failing setups, for average players stealing/selling cars is likely way faster.

and to answer your question, for steals I'd say the cargobob can do it on average like 1-7 mins, sells like idk, 1-5 mins. Just depends on how far away they are.

Indeed.. but even with the worst bad luck it is perfectly possible to do a finale in 2 houres.

Also i am also taking into acount the setup costs, the loading and staying in freeroam waiting for the message to drop.

The numbers in the OP...that maximum...does not consider the cooldown(which should be removed), the stealing of the vehicle or the running back and forth between the office building and hangar
