View Full Version : Impossible to beat this mission with McLaren 12C?

12-04-2014, 11:07 AM
I don't know much about cars so can anyone tell me why couldn't I beat mission Escape Velocity with my McLaren 12C :confused:. I spent 3 hours straight tried to complete this mission with McLaren 12C, couldn't even get bronze. I failed and have to retry it many times :mad:, until I gave up and went some where else to lvl up my Ferrari 458 Speciale (It was around lvl 400). When I got it up till about 600 then I went gave it a try with the mission. With just the first time, I already got so close to finish the mission. Finally I got bronze in the second try with Ferrari.
Here are the 2 cars specs:
And something interesting happened, some how while I was lvling up my Ferrari, I achieved lvl 50 achievement even though I'm still lvl 47 :confused:

Same here, I am stuck in this mission. Performance and ice is hell.

I tried with my first Performance car, Nissan, then with McLaren, but I guess I need better pieces. I am level 50.

Is Escape velocity the one where you gotta transport Roxanne to safety? It was *****y hard to drive through the mountains on ice yeah indeed.

I can't beat it with either car.. Been trying for ages and I'm really sick of doing this.
5 minute mission, no idea if I'll make it til the end, I'm not making many mistakes and have no idea how to improve.. 802 mclaren, 765 ferrari speciale..

Feels like a giant waste of time, just angry instead of entertained now.

I've upgraded the Nissan, McLaren and Ferrari and still nothing.

I used the Aston Martin Vantage S back when I did it, seemed to handle the corners really well if you don't try to fight the corners and just let it slide like it wants to instead.
I'd imagine an AWD car like a Gallardo or Continental SS would do pretty well if for some reason you don't want to slide through the corners, though.

I tried it with the Nissan Skyline Gt-R and it wasn't bad for me i think it might have to do with what controls or what settings you have because i just hit the brakes and throttle it through the turns and tried not to use nitrous on the icy straights

I finally got it with a Dodge Viper SRT-10 Coupe, perhaps not so fast like Ferrari or McLaren but it behaves better on ice.

Countdown was ticking, silver badge. One full day upgrading and trying cars, nobody can say this game is easy and for casuals, hehe.

I did the mission with a friend, he had the Mclaren and i had the Agera R and we did the mission in on go on gold D:

You need to use a 4WD car in order to get traction out of the corners. I did mine in a slightly upgraded GTR and I got to the end with 40 seconds to spare.

I don't know if my game is bugging but I couldn't finish this mission too.
I tried it with the Ferrari or with the Agera (both 1200+) and couldn't get more than 100kmh in average speed, so I still had 1km to go at the time the counter was up...
Don't know what to do
