Following their return to Los Angeles, Dominic Toretto and his crew devised a plan that would allow them to get close enough to Mose Jakande while within the range of God's Eye that would allow Ramsey to hack the device and take control of it. During the beginning of their operation, Ramsey accompanied Brian O'Conner in the 2012 Nissan GT-R.
Once she was identified by the God's Eye, Mose sent a UAV after them. Brian evaded the gunfire from the UAV for a time, using the environment of the city, such as a high riding truck.
A modification of on the Nissan's hydraulic system allowed the car to ride low and duck under the truck while the truck took the brunt of the fire. When the UAV continued to pursue them, Brian was forced to pass Ramsey onto Roman Pearce and Tej Parker, In the 1987 Chevrolet Caprice Custom. At the last second, he jumped out of the Nissan just as the UAV fired missiles upon the vehicle and destroyed it.
