Double Your Chop Shop

In case you've been living under a rock and missed this, here is an easy way to produce 2 cars a day at your chop shop:

1. Wait until your chop shop is ready to build a car and ready to collect parts from.
2. Build a car (prior to collecting parts).
3. Collect your parts. Your car building timer will have just reset!
4. Build another car.

You can repeat this every 24 hours. Enjoy getting twice the cars while it lasts!

Speaking of how long it will last - I'm not really sure. On one hand, many players know about this and are using it. On the other hand, it's not going to break the game as it is limited by the amount of car parts you have, so it may be low on the priority list.

  2. I'm assuming this doesn't work if your chop shop is fully upgraded?

  3. it does work even if you're fully upgraded. Build a car before you COLLECT car parts. If you can't build a car for several hours and its ready to collect, WAIT.

    It does suck how if you're fully upgraded, you can't ask for more parts. I gave away lots then Level 12 opened up and it was a mad scramble to get parts again.

  5. You don't have to do anything really, just click on each item and it'll be checked.

    now, does anyone know where our updates/messages went ? when I click on messages, i get safehouse, send gifts, etc. Someone got me an egg through a job and it didn't show, I only know cuz they left a comment on my wall.

  6. It's a good thing car parts are easy to get. I have almost 8000 with my main account.

    Anyone know what the going rate is for a complete diamond collection?

  9. i just saw a "Truck Driver" on the wishlist of a person i was fighting against. looked like a piece of the beards collection in cuba ... but was wearing a hat. anyone know something about it?

  10. rate for a diamond collection is about a lotto set, in loot this is 1400 high end loot. Market prices are way too high.

    ReplyDelete
  11. a truck driver is -6 energy cost per job I guess. So if you do a job that only costs 6 energy you can level up constantly ;-)

  13. I've been building two cars at a time for a couple of weeks, and it has helped me boost my stamina tremendously (Rebel 2's!). Perfect glitch for people that want to focus on robbing or fighting.

    I've tested this and it works with all the new vehicles, even if the chop shop is fully upgraded. The key is to make sure that you wait to build the first car until your chop shop is ready to collect. Build, Collect, then immediately build again. Boom: you've got two cars in the span of a few seconds!

  14. 1400 for a diamond/lotto set?! Wow, prices really have jumped. Just a few months ago it was about 150. Good thing I got my extra lotto set when I did!

  15. The page editor really should update as promised the moscow guides, because they have only chapter 1 and 2 included.

  16. Why did Lotto jump so much? Also whats a single diamond worth?

    ReplyDelete
  17. @page editor comment - not sure what exactly you mean.

    And yeah, diamond set is just a bit more valuable than lotto set. Not sure why lotto jumped so much, but prices sure did jump a week or 2 after I recommended picking up the set!

  20. I got both mugati and hunter without doing the chop shop... just add both the cars to your wishlist and just keep opening mystery bags...you'll get the two in no time...though I DO NOT guarantee you will get the cars in the first try (I got mine after opening 10-15 bags)..so with lots of luck you can get these high-end cars ;).

    How to add the Cars in your wishlist:
    Make sure you have free spot(s) in your wishlist, then copy-paste the code in you browser. Good Luck.

  21. Looks like they fixed this with a simple trick: Building a car automatically forces you to collect your car parts.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just built 2, so maybe they are rolling out a fix slowly to some people, but not all.

  23. @ anonymous: 10:27 AM asking about the titles

  24. just tested this and it still works for me. they have different servers though, so maybe they are giving the fix a test run before making it live for everyone.

  25. Seen the new achievements?
    Tiers in the Top Mafia?
    Capo, Lieutenant, Enforcer, Street Crew, ... ????

    Does this mean they're gonna jam more friends into your Top Mafia? Will the significance be diluted?
    Does this help/hurt in wars? What kind of bonuses???

  27. Not sure @4:54.. we will have to wait and see.

  28. Mine works.. but it doesnt appear in the loot page. but it does appear during fights and robbery.

  29. I was not able to do this trick today even though it has worked every day for the past two weeks.

    I wonder if they "fixed it" now that the new weapons property is available. I admit, the prospect of racking up the equivalent of an additional 24 skill points per day without leveling seemed awfully generous.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think they fixed this glitch when the Weapons Depot went live. For the first time in weeks I was unable to build 2 cars in any of my accounts.

    ReplyDelete
  31. From my 3 accounts the double chop shop trick only worked on 1 :| so they rolled out a fix, too bad I wasn't aware of this much sooner

    ReplyDelete
  32. Has anyone been loosing any "total defense strength"?so far i am missing over 1200, three different occasions.

    ReplyDelete
  33. yes, they patched this for me. :( Was only able to build one rebel today, but they did increase the stamina payout from 5 pts to 6.

  34. Doesn't work any more...
