Crew Challenge 201 - Tataviam Really is Frozen

 

walt disney animation studios lol GIF

 

In anticipation of the usual seasonal weather change in GTA we'll be doing our usual Xmas-New Year challenge of a time trial where you need to set 2 times, one in normal weather and one in the snow. So this will run from now until some time in the New Year that gives us chance to set times in both weather conditions.

 

The track is Tataviam Frozen

 

  • custom sports cars
  • you can use different cars for each weather type
  • do a 2 lap race for each of your times, not fastest lap
  • non-contact if racing with others
  • time of day, weather (for non-snow time) up to you
  • make as many attempts as you like

 

Starts now

Ends – 19:00 GMT 13th Jan 2020

The landings seem totally random to me. What works one time, doesn't the next?

I agree, but i have been trying @Protocawl monstertruck trick to land more on the back wheels, and maybe it does help.

There is one more detail to try out if just landing on the rear wheels fails (which it has for me), and that is to use the brake to get your wheels to stop spinning mid-air, then land on the rear wheels with the wheels stationary. If that doesn't work either then we're screwed. :P

Some of the jumps do indeed remind me of certain R* stunt races. Land them perfectly but the game still wants you to spin out.

Having the wheels stop moving in mid air definitely seems to help. I try to land all 4 wheels touching the road at the same time. But with some cars, e.g. the Issi Sport for me, there's always a chance to spin on landing.

Snow is back, probably just today and tomorrow. Any times to declare? I have a best in the dry  of 6:03 and 6:18 in the snow, both in the Pariah.

@djw180 I know you were planning on extending this challenge through this weekend however there is still snow in Los Santos. Is there any chance you’ll extend it a few days longer as soon as it dries up?

Once the snow is gone I'll add a few more days before it ends. At the moment it's looking like this will run for at least another week because I want people to have a weekend of no snow to get clear times.

I’m waiting for clear weather and will just stick with my current snow time. Trying for a better one made me very mad yesterday, lol.

I know what you mean. I spent ages earlier, didn't do exactly faultless laps but could not understand why they were not faster than before. The I realised I had my old controller plugged in that doesn't fully apply R2 and that I only normally use for free-roam!

Snow in this game is just poorly implemented is all. Combine it with the goofy physics and we get frustration.

Horizon 4 does snow driving so much better :)
