So I was definitely wrong about doing the Crimnal Records race on ONE lap. Way to go is THREE laps. You get huge RP boosts for finishing the first two laps... I want to say this 1:30 race averages out to about 5000 RP per go-round. Mix in some "Processed" Survivors ($20,000 and 3,000 RP for completions) and you are good to go!
Tifa is back up to $550,000 after draining her account on the luxury apartment. $250,000 away from that Entity XF!

Yes, but I wanted to try it legit at first so I could be more impressed with my essentially unnecessary brilliant planning. No one ever came and I just crouched on top of the tower until I got my trophy.

After that, I figured that getting the Survivor trophy might be the hardest one since I died on stage four on my own earlier and never got past stage five.
I just hung out in my usual spot in the back corner (Boneyard) and stayed behind a car skeleton taking out people who showed up between me and the airplanes while the really good guy (and two other people) stayed in the main area. The really good guy I think used a sniper rifle but I never really saw him. I had plenty of kills but he had most of them. All I had to do was watch out for people sneaking over the wall behind me. I did take out all three of the helicopters though, mostly with a machinegun since they don't like to hold steady and wait for my RPG shot. On round 10, the really good guy dies halfway through (another guy died at the beginning) and the helicopter is flying around. It looks like no one on foot is near me so I duck out from cover and whip out my RPG, aim carefully as the helicopter is turning (I think to shoot the other remaining player) so its turn will only move a different part of the chopper into my target area, and fire. Boom. Carefully clean up the last few guys and get my Survivor trophy. And $20k. I was actually the only one who never died.

Rockstar servers down again... doesn't bother me as I'm watching college football anyway, but if they delete my character now, $500,000 is not going to cover it!

This game needs skateboarding in it.

Pharoah was right about the crate drops being fun, although I got killed the first time because I had no idea there would be NPCs waiting there for me. I got a couple crates today that no one else really seemed to after - it seems most people just want to kill each other while talking like a stereotypical gangsta on the headset. The last crate I got had a minigun in it but I had to go meet someone for dinner right after that so I hope I still have the minigun when I go back. I'd love to break that out on someone.
I also found a chance to try a bit of fun I had been looking to do - I saw a guy nearby was in a one of the stores that can be robbed, so I drove over there, jumped out of my car, and stuck a sticky bomb to his car. I then drove half a block away and watched backward as he came out of the store, got in his car, and started to drive away. I hit the detonator and boom.
I want to get the rally race trophy and fill up the rally medals, so if anyone can find a couple more people to alternate around as we do the circling the prison race (good for people without microphones since the navigator won't even need to tell the driver where the checkpoints are since there is nowhere else to go but around and around), let me know. I don't think anyone ever does rally races.

You guys are lucky. My crates are ALWAYS 500 RP and some lame gun I already have.

Now I don't know what I'm going to use my Stimulus money on! Probably a sports car or bike.

Those are the regular crate drops. You will see the word Special in yellow, for the special crate drops, they are RARE, and may only drop when you hit a certain rank, I don't know. I haven't seen another one since.
