“Love Fist. Your time polluting the airwaves is over. I gave you the chance to be friends. Now, I'm giving you the chance to die. Try to slow down and your limousine will explode, along with your BIG, HAIRY ARSES!”
The psycho tranvestite fan that was believed to be killed by Tommy somehow survived and has placed a bomb in the Love Fist Limo, which will go off if the Limo goes under 50 mph, meaning that Tommy has to drive over that speed for 1 hour 50 minutes (1 minute 50 seconds real time) until Love Fist defuses the bomb in the limo. Throughout the mission, on the top right side of the screen, a detonation bar will appear. If Tommy goes beneath a certain speed, it will fill up. If he goes above a certain speed, it will empty down. If the bar fills up completely, the limo explodes and the mission will end in failure. When the bomb is defused, Tommy drives Love Fist to their gig and after a cut-scene, the mission is complete.
Kent also reveals that the psycho is threatening the band again.
Jezz also tells Tommy that they'll need someone they can trust to drive their limo for them.
Tommy tells the band to calm down and assures them that he'll handle it.
Before going out, Tommy jokes about driving Love Fist around once more.
Out in the limo, Dick decides that the band should grab something to drink on their way down to the venue. While grabbing something to drink, Dick asks Tommy to put some music on.
While grabbing something to drink, Dick finds a tape and asks Tommy to put it on.
The tape is recorded by the psycho stalker, who reveals that the limo is rigged to blow if it goes slow.
The band asks Tommy to drive around the city while they look for the bomb.
While Tommy drives around the streets of Vice City at high speeds, the band discover a pile of boomshine. After some closer inspection, they realise that the boomshine is the bomb that is wired to blow up if the limo slows down.
After some more time, the band decides that the only way they're getting out of the situation is if they cut one of the wires.
Percy does not agree with this idea and says that he has no idea which wire to cut and jokes that Willy could just drink the boomshine out if he does it with a straw.
After some more time passes, the band keeps arguing about which wire to cut and decide to ask Tommy, who tells them to cut the green one, however Dick hesitates to cut it.
After some more time passes, Dick decides to finally cut the wire.
Dick cuts the wire and after a brief moment of horror, the band realises they're all alive.
After the bomb is defused, the band celebrates by drinking the boomshine that was just about to kill them and blasting V-Rock on the radio.

The mission is based on the 1994 movie Speed, where police detective Jack Traven tries to deactivate a bomb that will blow up if the bus goes less than 50 mph. Coincidentally, Dennis Hopper, the voice actor of Steve Scott, starred in the movie.
The rain in this mission is scripted.
This is the only time in the game that Love Fist are encountered outside of cutscenes.
The bomb seemed to be a set of Boomshine bottles inside the limo's drink cabinet, wired to the engine that would set off if it goes to a stop or a lower speed.
The default radio station at the start of the mission is always Emotion 98.3, and after defusing the bomb, the radio will automatically tune in to V-Rock, regardless if the radio is off or not.
There is a glitch in the PC version of the game, that if the player activates the replay function (F1 key) when the Love Fist members are talking at a certain time, their dialogue will be continued playing in full version in the replay scene, and after the scene ends, they will keep on chatting as normal. It is possible to use this trick to avoid car crashes, speeding down, and will also save a lot of time, thus making the completion of the mission become closer.
