Time Trials 2019 - Round 01 - American Grand Park
This is a track I have used for several events in the past and which always seems to be popular.

Although the Dukes is very stable in comparison to many of the other Muscle cars the track is mostly very fast and although big time can be gained the extra speed can mean some very simple mistakes prove very costly.


The only allowed car is the Imponte Dukes which is available from Southern San Andreas Super Autos for $62k or free if you had the game on PS3.


Sunday 7th April 2019 at Midnight (GMT) and (UTC).

Van Society Midweek Motorsport
Van Society Midweek Motorsport

Every Wednesday at 20:00 GMT the Van Society holds a motorsport based event for its members and guests. The night usually begins with a meet up in free roam before moving on to a playlist of jobs and races.

Our events may include contact racing, performance testing, free roam games, themed race nights and championships. See below for details of our regular events…

Van Society Race Nights

Themed race nights featuring a specific class, manufacturer, vehicle, location or whatever else we can come up with. We race these nights with contact on and organised grids.

Mystery Car

Find the hidden car in free roam with some clues and hints from the host. Once the car is discovered we all purchase the car and take it to Los Santos Customs before launching playlist of races in the Mystery Car.

Top Gear Class War

Find the best in class as we test vehicles on speed, handling, braking, acceleration, value, style and more with each player in a different car from the same class. We finish the night with a few races usually swapping cars with each other so we each get to race very car on the night.

Top Gear Reasonably Priced Car

We pick a Reasonably Priced car to purchase in advance and race for the evening. The car will always cost under $100,000.

Top Gear Challenge

Take a vehicle (or 3) and put them through a series of challenges and races suited to that vehicle in free roam and in user created jobs. Dress to impress and make sure your car matches too.

Free Roam Events

We also occasionally abandon the races and spend the evening in free roam with Off Road, Impromptu Racing and Fugitive nights.

Get Involved

We run a mixture of public and private events here on RSC, if you are interested in getting involved just post below.

If you do not have access to our crew area on RockstarSocialClub.net you can check out our up coming and previous events on our website VanSociety.net.

Daily Challenges
What's your opinion on these?

I quite like them in principle, it's giving me something to do and getting me to try a few things I don't normally do and even learn a bit more about the game. I have entered some free roam events for the first time. Not that impressed with them but worth trying (too many other players just going round getting kills rather than trying to do whatever the objective is). Also I never knew you could sell herbs to a doctor until I got a challenge to sell herbs.

Some aren't very challenging though. Like the above selling herbs / feathers / meat / pelts is simple. The easiest I have done is join a gun rush. That is literally all I had do, join it, not finish it. In fact I got kicked or disconnected from the lobby, didn't even start it and yet it still counted as completing the challenge.

Others are too challenging for me, like having to win a free roam event, it's highly unlikely I am ever going to manage that. Some are annoying, kill 5 players with a weapon I do not own. I don't see it being worth buying that just for these and I don't really want to do that in free roam anyway (unless I'm attacked and have to defend myself). If it can be done from a showdown then that's fine, but with the current system of course if you just join a showdown you've no idea if it's going to have the weapon you want available. 

I quite like the hunting specific animal / gathering specific herb. But they can take a lot of time and if I was just doing this for the gold and XP then it probably wouldn't be worth it. In the time it takes me to find the specific animals / plants and gather the right amount I probably could have earned more money just hunting / fishing anything and got more XP from a stranger mission.

I have only completed all 7 once and did not notice any bonus for doing them all. Anyone know if there are bonuses for completing them all, completing all for a week etc?

How to maintain a successful crew
I'm gonna pass on what I've learned about maintaining a successful crew. I created Domestic Battery over 5 years ago and it is still running strong while many other crews have broken up or has just died with time. This can probably be applied in many ways to crews/clans of any game but I'm gonna reference GTAO since RDRO doesn't have a crew system in place as of the time of posting this.

First off you need to define some base philosophy of what your crew is - is it a free aim crew such as The Damned Brotherhood led by @ajbns87, or a racing crew like Van Society led by @JuniorChubb (I think VANS does more racing than anything else) etc.. etc.. And I say this because when people are looking for a crew they are looking for something specific alot of times. My crew specializes in nothing but fun and that works for us but may not work for hard core deathmatch players who do not want to do anything but deathmatches.

So let's assumer you have a dozen or so members, a good start to a player base, right of the bat you might be thinking about promoting people to Lieutenant or Commissioner and the fact is if you do not need to promote someone don't. And don't promote people based on friendship. Promotions should be done based on tasks/jobs needing managed in the crew, such as a recruitment official, events person, etc.. basically putting someone in charge of specific duties of the crew. Giving these jobs to friends based on friendship alone all to often will prove to be  disaster because they have not earned the spot and they will not do the job because odds are you are not gonna want to demote your friend. If they were never promoted to begin with then they can't be mad about a demotion, just sayin.

So how do you promote then? Who is putting in that extra effort in your crew? That's who you need to promote. That said not everyone performs well once assigned a role, but you never now till you try.

How long have you been playing GTAO?
As the title says, And, if you had to start all over again would you?
I've been playing since 2 weeks after launch. I would not start over, can't imagine being a total noob in this game at the point it is in. Back then the biggest threats were Lazers and Rhinos and you didn't have to have a ton of businesses. I get ticked at my in game phone going off for the couple things I don't own, I would throw my controller at it if I had no businesses and it ran every 2 minutes.

How do you deal with the griefers and trolls??
I have 3 basic methods of dealling with them..


If I am better than they are I keep killing them over and over and over till they leave the lobby.

If they are better than me, I am a camping king and can sit all day until the shot comes to my favor. When they get tired of getting killed by a camper and ride off I let them ride away then follow them, kill them and camp again. Rinse and repeat till they leave the lobby.

If I have my crew in posse we will kill them and anyone even close to the area till they all leave the lobby.

Note that 1 time in a posse of 5 we attacked someone over and over and he/she kick our rears from one end of St. Denis to the other....we deserved it.
