How to play DRAG?

Recommended Posts

There are a couple, but first, I have to ask which platform are you on.

Because keyboard users are at a genuine disadvantage there (due to wheel slip, mostly) compared to analog controller users.

Yeah, a gamepad is a touch better, because you can feed the throttle more gradually thereby decreasing the chance of spinning the wheels up due to too much throttle application. I guess you can turn TC on, but never rely on it - it should be there as a last resort.

Then into the territories of using the clutch, but I have no experience on that field as far as drag racing is concerned in GAS. So you can hope someone will point you in the right direction.

I've got the main idea! You can start even BEFORE green light! Till your back wheel is in a zone it is valid to begin to accelerate even at yellow light. 

I've won top drag championship already!  (*) (*) (*)

Congrats, man. :smile: 

Yeah, that's one way to approach the start - the other is to roll as far ahead as possible to only have the slightest of your rear wheels in the zone. But that requires razor sharp reflexes and carries a disadvantage compared to the guy who starts more from the back (and thus can start earlier) all the way to the finish line. My guess is that you should use your method for the longer distances and the latter may be more beneficial on the shorter distances.

Also, the longer distances work better for keyboard users, because then top speed counts for more and the start itself (at which us, keyboard users, are disadvantaged) counts for less.
