Bruce's Races

Recommended Posts

QueenUtopia

Is it possible to complete the story missions and the story itself without having to do the races with Bruce? Although I can drive like a pro during normal game play and most car chases (except bikes)I can Drive fast, weave in and out of traffic and take corners smoothly yet I just can not win a race the best I can do is to come in second I always get knocked about by the other drivers and crash and after a dozen attempts im resigning my to never being able to complete the Bruce Race Missions? So my question is MUST I do the Race's?

I will pwn you newbs

You do have to win the race called No. 1 but its really easy. Sorry to tell you this but if you can't win it then you aren't a good driver. If you can't do it just shoot everyone's tires out at the beginning

I already said I had won the race and how does struggling to win the race because the other drivers contently crash in to you make you a bad driver? I have completed all the other driving missions up to now and car chases which I would not have been able to do if I was not a good driver. Im just rubbish at riding motor bikes lol

It's interesting, because I'm not sure if you're actually required to beat Brucie's missions, because on one save file I had held off on them around the time that Alderny is story relevant.

I won all of those By having a fast car like Banshee and Comet. I had not always patience enough to get one from the rich in Alderney so I decided to get them By cheat codes. Shame on me, I know :miranda:... One good way to get the first Place is to drive through competers' cars just when the competition has started. :)

Yes, there is this, and once you get into first place, as long as you know the routes and the dangerous corners, the races really aren't all that difficult to win. If you're stuck for a vehicle for the races in the first island and not too keen to use Brucie's yellow Comet, there's a Turismo, which handles much better than the Comet, parked in Faustin's Drive that you can use without any repercussions.

Haha this one time on the Airport race, the Comet driving AI couldn't keep up with the ones driving in the slow 4-door sedans. It was hillarious.

 

And how the hell do you fail Ruff Rider? You're given a NRG against a guy driving slowly on a Hellfury.

Yeah, I once beat that exact race against a Comet in a Blista Compact, the guy couldn't keep on track on those corners I guess :p

 

@OP, you can just get a car for Ruff Ryder and knock that guy out of his bike. And as for those phonecall Brucie races, just use a car with decent handling and drive carefully or if you're still struggling, there's always a chance you'll compete against a bunch of pickups.

You don't have to compete on a high-end sports car. Cars such as the Coquette and Banshee are somewhat wild when it comes to controlled racing, and the Super GT is more of a touring car. The Comet, as mentioned is ideal, but the Turismo and Infernus give the best combination of control and speed.

 

However, the races are so easy in IV that you can usually get away with using a Sentinel (terrific vehicle as far as control and speed) and even a Blista Compact. I've won races against Turismos, Comets and Infernuses (or should that be Inferni?) driving no more than a Blista.

I had my Huntley dissapear, if it's the Bohan safehouse. The orange is a meh color anyway, the Comet in true yellow is much better.

Yeah you can keep it. But what could've happened was that awful glitch that deletes some of your saved vehicles may have occurred. Another possibility is oncoming traffic might have knocked your car out of its spot, causing the game to despawn it for good. And one other annoying thing about parking spaces is if you drive by a safehouse while having a wanted level, if there are any on foot cops near your parking space they can actually commandeer your parked vehicle and use it to chase after you, in which case you'll need to take it back or lose it.

 

topic:

Glad you finally won the race, op. I actually really enjoyed Brucies races, my main cars for them were the Turismo and the Sultan RS, but that's because I really liked those cars. You don't need speed to win them, you just need to keep control of your car and handle the turns since the npc's will usually try to gun it the whole time and end up crashing. They always seemed to fly into walls and lampposts in my game at least.

One advice to win races easily? slow down at corners and you will do just fine. ;)

You only have to do the race in the mission No. 1, completing this will subsequently unlock 9 other races. But you don't have to complete them for story completion, you do however have to complete them if you want 100% completion.
