- "Imagine controlling a race car with just your thumbs and forefingers. Sound absurd? That’s because it is. But don’t let that stop you from grabbing the remote of a RC Bandito and smashing each other’s records all to pieces in new RC Time Trials."

RC Time Trials are a Freemode Event featured in Grand Theft Auto Online. They were introduced as part of the continuation of the The Diamond Casino & Resort update, released on August 15, 2019, during the Emerus Week event.
RC Time Trials are relatively short technical courses. They are locked to the RC Bandito and the goal is to beat a par time, rewarding the player with money and reputation. A purple corona will highlight the starting point, which can be seen on the map as a purple RC Bandito controler.
Once the player starts the trial, the screen will fade to black, after which they will assume control of an RC Bandito. A 3-second countdown begins and then the race starts. Unlike standard Time Trials, the player must follow checkpoints, similar to land races.
The race is live and one-man only, meaning that other players can see the player racing in the freemode session. To avoid interruptions by others, the player is switched to passive mode.
If the player took a wrong turn or has gone over the par time, they can hold F (PC), Y (Xbox One), or Triangle (PlayStation 4) to quit the race. The player will then be placed near the purple corona and have the option to start the race again.
RC Time Trials are unique and change every week (real-time). Once the player has beaten the par time, the time trial becomes unavailable and reappears after a while. Any further successful attempt on beating the par time will only give the consolation money ($1,000-$4,000).
There are a total of ten time trials. By October 24, 2019, all of them had been released, and the list started from the beginning and continued in the same order.
