If you were going down the freeway in a one-wheeled canoe and your walls fell off, how many pancakes would it take to cover your doghouse?

It takes skill to build an empire. It takes an idiot to maintain it.

I can help you with drifting. An extract from my FAQ:

"Well, getting familiar with the drifting mechanism is the imperative thing. I wouldn't jump the gun and go straight for the canyon drifts firstly. Everyone needs to learn the basics first - on the drift TRACKS. Canyons are for the big boys only.

How do you get familiar? Well it isnt a cut-and-dry situation. There are many factors involved in getting a good score on drifting. Tuning is one. Here is the recommended setup for drifting. When purchasing performance mods, set the mods on these settings:

Engine - Set it on full torque
Transmission - full acceleration
Suspension - full oversteer
NOS - full velocity
Tires - Drift
Brakes - Evenly biased (middle)
Turbo - middle

Now, select a tier 2 tuner and set it up with these settings. In quick race mode, select Kimei Temple drift track in the downtown section. Then choose your tier 2 tuner in car select.

Now, you need to get a feel of the car when all the physics are thrown out of whack. Start off, and use NOS to propel yourself into the blue "speed bonus" zone. Aim for an overall score of 25,000. Then go for 50,000 , then 75,000 etc. Once you acheive 250,000 , you're all set for the canyon. the canyon works on the same principles of the tracks, with the exceptions of no bonus zones, a narrower and more difficult line to find and jutting rocks. These canyons are definitely no cake-walk, so its imperative that you focus on the tracks first."



For general city racing, here is my performance setup:

Engine: Horsepower
Transmission: Acceleration
Suspension: Middle
NOS: Velocity
Tires: Grip
Brakes: Middle
Turbo/S'charger: High RPM

Some tips in general:

  • When you approach the turn, take the innermost inside line. It has to be such a focused line, that you will be in danger of hitting the wall. But it is the fastest, and I highly recommend you master this skill before your tournament.
  • Turns are like fingerprints: no two are alike. So don't treat them similarly. When you go into them, face them like they are the first corner in a F1 race.
  • Try not to use speedbreaker all the time. In fact, learn how to NOT use speedbreaker at all. Sure, you can find a better line but at a huge cost: speed. Speedbreaker lives up to its name: it breaks/damages your speed when used.

    If there are any other specific areas you need help with, post back here and I'll get to them. And good luck in the tournament man.

    Whatever you're comfortable with. I personally find more control with the steering wheel/controller than the keyboard itself.

    I highly recommend the Lamborghini Gallardo. Why?

  • Its 4wd system means, given the timing is spot-on, you can leave corners faster than you enter them, due to the huge amount of grip.
  • Its small size means nimble bodywork and this enables it to handle like a dream.
  • Its acceleration is greatly improved thanks to its 4wd system. This daunting acceleration makes the Murcielago look like a huge rip-off.

    Any more tips you need? I'll be more than glad to help.
