The Driver Help

Can anyone suggest a good way to finish this mission?? This one really annoys me because of the cops. They just ram you and you lose and the fact that the car of Hilary is a lot faster than yours in makes this mission incredibly frustrating. Please suggest an easier way to finish this mission. Thanks

If you play on PC you can easily decrease his max speed and prevent the cops from harrassing you.

This is just my observation and based on my personal experiences in trying to win the race, esp., playing on the PC platform.

One of the important thing to note here is NOT lose hilary's car from your screen. I mean, always maintain enough distance between you and his car that you can see him on the screen. If you can overtake his car then its great, otherwise always maintain a close distance. Why? Because the game won't spawn traffic on the roads if hilary's car manages to get ahead of your car, which means the game won't load any traffic to make him crash or spin out of control, and hilary will win the race without any obstacles. 

If you are a good driver :p then you should always focus on staying close to his car and thus the traffic on the road can help you in making his car ( AI ) crash at certain points in the race, and this is the advantage that the player can use to gain a lead, or if you know the pit maneuver technique then you can make his car crash on the side of the road and watch him desperately trying to get back on the road. This has happened to me many times, and its funny to see the AI fail in trying to stop hilary's car from spinning or crashing. Its an easy lead from hereon to win the race.

 

Another trick is to start the mission with high wanted stars, which will bring the cop cars into the race chasing you and thus more vehicles on the road for hilary's car to crash, including the spike strips on the roads.

 

Lastly, avoid starting the mission when its raining.

Nevermind I just figured it out. I tampered with the files and reduced Hilary's car speed to 10 and I won easily. Thanks for the advice tho

Take a look at this video:

 

It shows the pit maneuver technique I was talking about. Nicely done and very good driving. Its a good mission if one plays it smartly.

When I was a kid I used to just stick a coach in the road further down. You can usually spin him out around the police station area just be careful not to send him into the water or you'll fail.

What I can tell you from my experience is that you should try to overtake him at the very beginning. The more you progress in the race - the more difficult it becomes. I remember back in the day reloading my save game when I didn't manage to do anything during the first 20-30 seconds :D  The first few seconds are probably the best chance to overtake him when he is yet accelerating. Just try to push him somehow or better - spin him like the police does.

I guess everyone agrees that it's kinda unfair that you are forced to drive with a Sentinel against Sabre Turbo but... it's Rockstar, what can you do?

Using the video above as reference, what I like to do is turn right and go down the stairs after taking the checkpoint at 1:32, picking up a bribe and then climbing right back up the stairs on the other side. With the wanted level reduced to 1 star, the cops will most likely lose you soon enough, and cease to be an issue.

Wow, it's amusing people have to tamper with game code to pass missions, if you can drive a car somewhat ok you should beat him easily as he can be a bit dumb, I never lose to him anymore.

find the file called "handling.cfg". The N column controls the speed of the vehicles. I believe Hilary's car was a Sabre Turbo

Well I tried to complete it like 17 times and I have had enough. I came close to beating him like 7 times and the pig cops would knock me off course and cause me to fail.

Hilary driving a bit dumb is one thing, getting knocked off by pig cops is another

I have to see you play to get a clear idea where you're struggling at. Near the hospital, I make a full stop near the intersection and wait for the scripted cops to ram each other...

Cops are scripted to spawn at specific (very few) points in this mission. They do not bother otherwise, as long as you are driving without stopping (or slowing down) anywhere in the mission. I think you should note down those scripted points (check the video I posted earlier (above) where the uploader shows where the cops are supposed to spawn and how to avoid them), and then try again to beat the mission carefully by following the tips as mentioned so far.

Its not that difficult if you attempt the mission patiently with proper focus.

You won't mess up your game if you change one number in your handling.cfg
