Nero Custom is the current king of the stunt track and is currently 25% off, but you're going to have to get more cash to buy the car ($1.05MM after discount) and the custom conversion ($600K at Benny's or your office body shop, if you have one).

Oops, I missed the part about Benny's upgrades being 25% off, too, so that will take another $150K off your purchase price.

Is the Duke similar to the Armoured Kurama from a defence perspective?

It's a little more vulnerable to gun fire, but it can take a little more explosion damage.

It's also really good at ramming vehicles (similar to the Insurgent).

The Duke O' Death is a really fun car to use. It's definitely going to be a go-to car for missions.

I ended up buying one last night myself! It's roughly a million times better-looking than my RE-7B.

Yeah just got the upgrade. Nice that it was 25% off.

I've been doing loads of the stunt races to get it but the zentorno is easily beating me in all races not matter which stock car I choose. I understand most will be using custom cars with upgrades to win the races but seems like it's one of the quickest cars in the game. Should I save for one of those?

One other thing to add about the Duke O'Death: you have a very limited field of fire (basically just forwards) compared to the Kuruma. That's ok in a lot of situations (particularly since it's easy to slide the back around on the DoD), but for situations where you get surrounded the Kuruma's wider field of fire can come in handy.

The Nero is cool, but the RE-7B has those gull wing doors and those stock racing tyres...

I prefer racing with the Tyrus than I do the Nero. Temptesta is solid but lacks the top speed.

They need more tracks for muscle cars too.

Just upgraded most of the stuff on the Nero custom. Wow it's great in the races. The zentorno seems to be pretty fucking quick though.

Which contact missions do you guys think are the most enjoyable/best ones in the game? I'm not talking about money or RP payouts/grinding, I mean just in terms of actual quality.

I think The Los Santos Connection represents the best of what GTA missions can be. It's fun, it's better when you have people helping each other out, gives you a chance to use a variety of vehicles, and it feels a little bit epic, sort of like a mini heist that doesn't end if someone quits in the middle of it.

So, I'm feeling an inch for some new GTA, but I'm not interested in PvP with the GTA crowd. Does Online have enough PvE-type content to keep you going for a while? And if it does, just how bad is the grind?

Thanks!

i'd suggest joining a good crew and run missions with them. if you're on ps4, join the cewl (closed executive work lobbies) crew (https://www.reddit.com/r/CEOfriendly/). they keep griefers out, use mics, and are very active doing free-mode ceo/biker missions. that's as far as pve goes, grinding is a whole other story. and yes there are a lot of pve content to keep you busy, but outside of crew lobbies you'll have to deal with randoms of varying skill on contact missions, lamar missions, and heists.

GTA Online: Tiny Racers Out Now

Reminisce about the good old days while you hysterically race to avoid bursting into flames in Tiny Racers, the new retro-styled Adversary Mode in GTA Online.

Tiny Racers channels the spirit of classic GTA titles with a shifting, bird’s-eye perspective designed to bring you a new flavor of vehicle combat. Up to four players can duke it out for the top spot across seven new courses with just one rule: Don’t blow up. Fall too far behind first place and your tiny car goes boom.

Scattered across the track are various power-ups ranging from Rockets and Bombs to light-wielding Shotaros and Special Vehicles. Making good use of these power-ups is key to closing the distance and avoiding a fiery doom. To celebrate the launch of Tiny Racers we’re currently awarding Double GTA$ & RP to all participants.

PLAY GTA ONLINE THIS WEEK TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR A TAX REFUND BONUS

Log in and play GTA Online on PS4, Xbox One or PC at any point between now and Sunday, April 30th to be eligible for a GTA$425K tax refund compliments of the San Andreas State Treasury Department, to be deposited in your Maze Bank account during the month of May.

That tax refund will be nice. I got $500K when I logged on last night for what seems to be no reason (I had already been refunded my purchase price for returning player content last week). Keep the free money coming, Rockstar! I used it to buy a Comet Retro last night while the Benny's conversions are still 25% off. In doing so, I finally filled up the first of my office garages.
