Need for Speed: Carbon Discussion
also i seem to be having problems with the boss races. Everytime i do a canyon duel, i am always infront of the boss and always come over the finishing line first, but never seem to have any points and always come second even tho i have been infront off him PLEASE HELP ME!!!!
boss race, try staying as close to the boss as possible or pass them if you start behind them. if you start in front stay as far ahead of them as possible.
Each boss has their own weakness - and its a simple matter of discovering it and exploiting it. Search and Destroy, if you will.
Wolf has an amazing car - he just doesn't know how to use it effectively so it doesnt matter wat car class you have, you just need to be able to drive that car like greased lightning against him in ALL aspects; cornering, braking, entering and exiting (the corner).
Angie also has a hell of a car AND has the skills to drive it. But the biggest handicap is that its a muscle - and we all know that muscles handle like . She is a real in the city but a muscle in a canyon duel is just suicidal, so all u need is a car with good handling but not necessarily the best acceleration; i.e. a lotus elise.
Kenji is arguably the best canyon dueler after Darius. His car is without doubt the best tuner (maybe even the best tier2) you can buy in the tier2 class. You will need all your skills in order to beat Kenji and also hope that Lady Luck is squarely in your passenger seat and not his. He has one very specific weakness - timing of entering and braking. Familiarity with the course makes up half the chances of winning - it may not be available in quick race yet but do the run a couple of times to find the optimum line; forget about winning. If you can ace it in one run, then great. Go for it. Kenji, by the look of it, is unfamiliar with this run so you have to exploit this by making yourself as familiar as you can with this course so that you know the timing and the correct line to take thru each corner.
The way your car is tuned is an important factor in drifting. A good drift car will have the maximum torque possible, along with a very stiff suspension (oversteer settings) completed with low-traction tires (drift tires). Car classes also determine how well you drift; and these are mainly determined by the car's weight balances - how much of the weight is distributed over the front and the rear.
Exotics' perfect 50-50 balances bring possibly the worst effect for drifting as the balance of the car has to shift a lot, but with 50-50 the WHOLE weight of the car is shifted, meaning the car will spin out VERY easily, ergo exotics do not drift well.
Muscles' odd balances, like 30(front)-70(rear) bring an extremely positive balance for drifting, however they have too much torque and these two extremes coincide with each other to bring out an average drifter. The torque is also the main reason why the tail has an annoying habit to kick out while city-driving.
Tuners are the gods of the drift world. Their usual, consistent balance of 60-40/65-35 and their equal amounts of torque and horsepower bring out the best effect one could possibly ask for - the 350z being one of them (personal best - 4,938,054 in a Z on gold valley run canyon drift). Their slightly stiff suspension is ideal for city and canyon races as well as drift races.
Of course, the car is only half the job done. The REAL factor is yourself. Your skill. I recommend City Courthouse drift as a training ground (Fortuna). The trick is speed - the faster you go the better you'll score. Although with more speed there is less control. By now you'll have realised how sensitive the car is, you just have to control it. Dont push yourself straight away - set yourself gentle targets and then higher ones. Start with 50k, then 60k etc. when you find you are scoring 250k+ you'll realise that thats pretty good.

P.S. Anyone up for grabs for the DK crown? Beat 856,958 in city courthouse drift and then 4,938,054 in gold valley run canyon drift
