Need for Speed: ProStreet Discussion
Come on.The game is not a total waste.Some tracks are good,and drag rules in this game.
I like only the drag and the drift,and the cars allong with the tuning....
3 out of 10
Check out the Lambo, I agree with the others here - that is the king of speed.
Caster and Camber optimized for speed
and minimum steer ratio (so it under-steers)
that should help you a LOT of you're not using a wheel or joystick (and by joystick i DON'T mean dual-shock-type-controller)
also, i've been having awesome fun drifting with the AE86. don't let the low horsepower (even with Stage 4) trick you into thinking it sucks before you give that car a chance. I think I found my Dodge Neon replacement.
I'm revising my opinion of my fav over-all cars...
drag = ViperRT10
drift = AE86
speed = Lambo
grip = Zonda
but I think grip is the hardest to find a clear winner. There ARE cars that beat the Zonda for some tracks. Like the Ford Escort RS Cosworth for rally-esc tracks, and the BWM Z4-M for flat very-tight cornered tracks. I've even found a few tracks my Porsche 997 GT2 posts better times on than anything (although I tuned the freakin bejesus out of it).
I wish the Stage 4 drivetrain on the 350Z was better, mainly it takes for bloody ever to shift, so the acceleration gets hurt badly. But that car shows potential if I can find a better balance between having it not roll, and having it not ice-skate. It's not a very forgiving car once you work out the rolling, but shows potential, and the turn-in twitch is uber-fast and uber-tight. My main blueprint feels more like a miniature Lambo Gallardo than a Nissan.
And there's a few GREAT cars that I haven't even begun to explore, especially the Ford GT (speed) and Lotus Elise (grip).

You're not the only one.I have problems with drifting and wheelies.
I just cant do it.
That makes the two of us who need help.
But the true secret is in the tuning. the grip ratio between front & back is maybe more important than anything else in the tuning, so adjust your rear-tire pressure more if it's not sliding enough, or less if it's sliding too much... and same for the front. The tire pressure setting effects all race modes like this.
For wheelies the vintage Dodge Charger is king. Mainly all you need is engine & supercharger built up at high as you can, and crank the boost to the max on low & high rpm. Then, you need to tweak the gear ratios. That car is already setup pretty good except for gear 5, so start with the final gear ratio first if you don't have enough power, and then work from there on how much longer you should make gear 5. I haven't beaten my 1352 foot wheelie yet, but yeah. Once you get it all tweaked you can basically wheely from the start past the finish. I mean... pretty much every time out I'm scraping my rear bumper through the finish line with that car. lol.
