  1. No if the game rubber bands when you're behind it will just slow the AI down so they're easier for you to catch. That's less noticeable than suddenly having a higher top speed and more grip.
  2. Well to be that good with auto gears means you'll be one heck on an opponent when you get manual gears down. Don't worry about downshifting until you're below half your revs you can use most of your toque curve to keep the tires spinning and achieve faster drifts. And yeah fraps I can definitely see holding you back. Good to hear you're pushing yourself that's what I've been trying to do with only countersteering as it's still possible to drift with 0° on th wheels or even turning into the slide.
  3. It's just a number next to the name anyways if you're good you're good.
  4. Surely this isn't the same type of cheating that happened in GRID where people were changing the data sent back to the MP side of things making their game happen at a faster rate? Would be interested to see how their cars reacted to a 'nudge'.
  5. Smooooth man your lines are supper smooth. I would just say try shortening the gears and using 4th. Your angle seems limited in most corners due to running out of revs. Wouldn't be surprised to see you pulling 11+ mil in 4 with your lines and more angle. Maybe a little closer to the clips for style. I definitely need to get smooth mid corner I'm getting there but I started out wanting to do super aggressive entries. I was close to your score in my first vid with the RX7 and a couple of collisions. I think there's room for us both to get higher scores.
  6. I'm going to disagree with the C1 Evo being best the S13 is much more capable out of the box. It has a better, more usable power band and better shifting points with the 4 gear transmission.
  7. Here's the tandem session I was talking about I ended up getting WiFi while I had my laptop handy so I uploaded it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNaCHjP3pWg Hope you guys are having fun banging doors too! \m/
  8. Xbox is in the redeem code menu of the homescreen. I think you can find it hitting the center jewel or whatever they call it.
  9. Haha I did too the first 4 years I started racing then moved to rallycross and haven't looked back. I find it more fun to control a car that doesn't want to be, but I'll take any racing over hard parking.
  10. I agree CM hasn't gotten using a wheel right so I use the controller for the GRID games but I often drift Forza 4 with my MS wheel in cockpit view. They want to straighten because that's how the real cars work. You have to use the throttle to keep the car rotating because the tires have so much grip. Try the setup I used at the beginning of my video with a controller and use 3rd and 4th gear sometimes I go 5th on the long sweepers if I'm carrying enough speed. The real cars aren't just e brake and go anymore and I'm glad the games are following. It takes skill and practise to drift at a high l
  11. You guys done any tandem in GAS yet? I'll post my footage from a random lobby I maganged to get someone to tandem in Monday.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SP4ucOMb04g This was my first test vid. The audio level is a little high but it was a pretty good four lap session. First my view then the replay. I nail the entry cones to the second turn in second session both laps with the second lap pulling it through the entire corner.
  12. Will add you Monday when I get my internet back. Down for some tandem goodness
  13. I agree with the penalizing system. It's also worth noting going off course hardly affects your score. It can be more beneficial to go on the wrong side of the entry cones off track than to hit them. I agree there should be a party mode that allows 12+ people to drift on track at once I would love to run some tandem trains. Physics are spot on to real world as far as feel goes. I did notice doing tight figure eights in 2nd gear didn't handle right but that's nitpicking. Brands Hatch is amazing for big Japanese style entries I love going in two gears too high and throwing it 90° to the entry cl
  14. Once I got used to the cockpit view in GRID I haven't used anything else when I can. If I have to I always use the hood cam. Much easier to look ahead once you learn to feel where the back of the car is.
  15. I've got my drift car with only a few so it looks like they were just stickered on because. Don't like the first slot that takes up the whole door race cars usually have those names integrated into the overall design and that's pretty hard to do with the patterns and logos.
