If you want to get your car on fire use the car a lot! Try LCPD police chases! Your bound to crash a lot! Drive throw the town where their is a lot of cars! If your on the run, you wont have time to turn a corner properly! I say you should get about 3 stars on your wanted level! Enter this into the phone on the keypad about three times for a good chase!

All you have to do is beat the crap out of it. They made the cars alot more realistic so there would be no more explosions every time you scratch your car. Personaly, I like the new cars.

The car will take alot of damage, before setting on fire, you will see black smoke coming from the front, for a while, only a few more crashes, or engine buring will set it on fire.

Molotovs also quicken the proccess.

If you keep destroying the car, eventually the engine will give out. This usually happens before the car catches fire. If your engine gives out, call 911 on your phone and your car will start. It will not call police, fire, hospital, or anything else...the car just starts. At this point, the car is in pretty bad shape; crash some more, and an explosion is inevitable.

I find shooting the back-left tire usually sets it on fire pretty quick
