Road Rage : my truck is slightly lower and I can't figure why

For the context, I compared my run with the world record one section by section, and I realise that on the section where the truck is moving my truck was 15 seconds slower despite both starting at the same point.

I synchronised my run and the world record, and I saw that during the whole truck run, my truck was slowly falling behind despite me never going outside of the hack radius.

My only guesses is either, there is a way to make the truck go to an optimal speed that I do not know, OR, since I got an average computer, Payday 3 + OBS make my processor working at 100% and I may be having some minor rollback during all the run, but I hope not

You can see both section times here : My run is here : WR run is here :

I'm nearly 100% sure our truck start at the same position and go the same route, and we both not leave the hack radius

I also posted a thread on steam to see if it's a bug

After doing over and over the same tracks with different setups, I can say that my run is slower due to me recording my game. It happen with OBS and FRAPS.

When I don't record my screen, the truck take the path in 4:46, and when I record he take 5:01, every time.

I have absolutely NO IDEA why ity does that in my runs and not on the WR ones. Maybe it's a spec thing. I had my task manager open at anytime and my processor was at 70% max during the whole run.

My only solution right now is that I'll have to record my screen with my phone, or buy a better PC...

I feel really low right now.

that is very interesting! i wonder why that would happen. and can you just optimize a pc to make the truck go faster than WR?

I really don't think that the speed of the truck is tied to your performance, in the sense that "the more fps, the faster it goes"

I think it as a capped speed and it lag/stop/rollback when your PC is strugling. I don't know if the server connection is worse when your PC is strugling, it may be linked but I'm not sure

Run Archival Spreadsheet!

Hey heisters, with the long awaited update on the (very near) horizon - the archival boards for runs that are no longer possible has now been set up on a google spreadsheet. This system currently is fit for purpose, however it will get unwieldy once more heists are released, so we will be looking at
