GTA 5 Cannonball run...

I'm without an XBL connection, so I just mess around in single player. About halfway through my second career mode, using opposite heist plans from the first time. Anyway, I wanted to see how fast I could drive a lap around the map and figured maybe if others wanted to try it we could compare times and see whats what.

First, the route. Start/finish line is the Xero gas station in Del Perro at the beginning of the Great Ocean Highway. From there it is the long loop around the map.



I did a practice run with Aston Martin lookalike but smashed it up pretty bad and bareley made it back. I just did it again in a stock Grotti Carbonizzane and managed 11:11.9.



This lap was complete with lots of front end damage, one spinout near Paletto Bay to avoid a semi truck, and I missed the off-ramp to highway 5 and had to backtrack. Anyway it's a good benchmark.

It's a good way to kill time till midnight, anyway.

Give it a shot, I might try again once I have enough money to buy Los Santos Customs and get free car uprgrades. Such a fun game.

If they ever get the race editor up and running online this could be a crew race.

Man I did three of these laps trying to survive (and snag) a $9K bounty the other night... I was close, but then one of the pricks caught up with me and knocked me into an abutment in the tunnel by Del Perro. I was in a Sabre Turbo with all the fixin's.

Made a few meager attempts yesterday. All ended in death, via either fiery crash or flying out of the windshield. lol

I tried again, it did not go well.

So 11:29.8 in a car that should be significantly faster than the first run. Its maxed out as far as upgrades go.

The truck traffic coming into the city and on the bridges near the airport slows you down.

Ah-Ha! 10:35.1

Bone stock except for lights and some cosmetic stuff. This car has a glorious exhaust note too. Saved most of the time by NOT missing the onramp to highway 5.

Don't make me do all the work here. Can this be done in under 10 minutes?
