Time Trial #20 "Power Station"

Recommended Posts

kringled

1:23.46, Bati. Compared to Nutduster's map, I was on the road for his first shortcut, used the second, and for the mountains, I actually turned right onto the hills a bit before his turn. It's longer through the mountains but I was less likely to go soaring in a big (and slow) jump, and a lot more of it was on ridgeline where it's easier to maintain speed.

Lots of restarts though. I don't think I suicided once on this TT.

1:24 and change, and never again. The hills bit is just f*cking horrible. It would be fine if there was a sensible route that would keep you mostly on your wheels, but all that sh*t where you're jumping after jumping after jumping and then jumping again is just horrible, with multiple "I hope I land this" moments.

 

Screw those hills and screw this time trial. Thanks for the $50K - I'll see you next week.

What exactly is the point of doing these time trials?

Entertainment, which time trials do not.

To make pointless posts like this^.

Nah seriously though they are really fun for a lot of us. Probably one of the only challenging things you can do in this game.

 

And the $50k you get for beating it is nice if you can get it on the first couple of runs.

If you'd have been there it would likely have happened. I fell off a few times for sure.

That's a good path but it won't work on a bike, you can't get through the fences consistently without crashing (I tried).

 

It's the path I took from the very first attempt. If you park a tank or another player there, then the fences and posts want respawn.

Admittedly, only something you can do if you have a patient friend; in my case it was an AFK account.

This is why we need the old Vice City ramp truck back as a Pegasus vehicle. Imagine the time trial shenanigans you could pull off with that thing. :)

Hmmm. Have a friend park a Cheetah where it is needed?

Done it with 2 seconds to spare on my Akuma. First corner is a bitch, ended up wedged underneath Sandkings and Rebels quite a few times. After that go straight across the grass and aim for where the billboard is, no rail there so you can get straight onto the highway. I did it in rain so the mountain part was a pain, tried turning right before the train bridge but had no grip at all so I ended up just sliding along, but then I figured if you start heading up right after the big massive intersection, you will save some time. Theres like 3 traffic signs on the side of the road there which you can cleverly bump into to change your direction.

Wait a minute...since you no longer go passive while doing these what's to stop a friend from airlifting you to the point with a cargobob?

*edit*

 

 

 

Have you tried taking your green line path, then continuing on the same trajectory across both sets of tracks and merging back with the highway? I'm not at my console now to check if that path is possible, but it looks like it might save a few seconds while still getting you on asphalt ASAP.

That's the one I meant by going straight to the highway from the car park. It definitely is the route to take.

Niiiiiice. Congrats!

 

On an unrelated note, now that Rockstar has changed the auto-passive thing, has anyone tried using a friend's Cargobob on one of these? It's sleazy and I'd never do it to beat par for the first time myself, but I remember a lot of effort going into trying that back when time trials were first introduced; with passive off, it might actually work now.

 

So damn someone needs to try this. Though considering how often you find Jets in games it might be even more difficult.

Almost made it. Getting closer. I admit that it requires a certain amount of luck to get through the end with a car.

Despite looking at all the vids and tips, I just can't focus enough on beating this. I've yet to make it on the street, always hitting trees or crushing my crotch on the bike. Just not worth it this time, to be honest.

Beat it with the T20, but I'm going to try and get a better time before I upload the video.

Don't give up, you can do it. Just look at Mach1bud, he has almost made it in a car!

I will try at least.

For me on Haku it was faster to slow down on ridges, so that i could wheelie all the way down the slope and up the next. You loose ridiculous amounts of speed if you land too hard, and it's "harder" to swerve past the trees when you are meters high in the air.

I lost track of how many times I ended up in a back garden as I hit that last goddam tree before getting onto the estate.

Idk I never finished. It's too stressful on the mountain to keep trying it. I might try the Dominator a few more times. It was like 10 seconds off before I worked out the best route.

Lol. That's what this time trial did to me as well. Just keep doing it and you'll get it. By the time I completed it I'd got the part up until the hills almost surgically accurate. The rest of it was just accelerate and hope, and reminded me of this...

I mean I could easily do it on a bike, but I hate bikes in this game, the physics are stupid and easy to abuse.

It's yet another track of boring straight highway, then some super bumpy off road sh*t that is not kind to cars whatsoever, 95% luck, hoping that a bush doesn't send you off into a spin, or a little bump sends you flipping down the hill.

What's the point of racing if it's just down to luck?

It doesn't have to be. You can figure out a route that doesn't require luck. Some people just accept the lucky win and move on though, like myself. I have no interest in finding a reliable route through those hills as it's not my kind of terrain. Others, however, have done and will do again.
