How do I grip? I only know how to drift.

You grip by slowing down and not giving it any gas when you corner. The car wont slide to the point of all out drift. Skid a little bit, maybe out of braking, but it's not gonna go sideways.

Hi Digibunny, thanks for the guide..
anyway, i'm new to this version.. i've recently FT my ap1 n i cant seem to break the 3,16.0xx barrier for akina..
the more i play, the more confused i get..
i'll try to conserve boost at the start n this will result in me not gasing fully for the 1st 2 checkpoints..which lead to sucky CPs..
does braking hard consume boost? the car seems to exit slow even though i followed your guide and glided through the corners..
n from my replays, i see ALOT of smoke coming out from my tyres,even though i'm already not fully gasing..
can you help me?

Oh no no, you've got a misconception about conserving boost.

Going full throttle on any CP is fine. It's the corners that decide where your boost gets shredded. Braking all in all, actually conserves boost. Heck; you can come to a complete stop in the middle of the run and you'd get this monster boost kick; but you'd still be slower overall.
You need to moderate how you corner so that your boost is saved for places where it's strategically more valuable to have an acceleration punch. (i.e. You dont need to corner like you're being chased by a steamroller. But you have to gun it on a long straight section.)

There shouldn't be any smoke coming from your tires at your level. Skid marks on the road, yes, but not white, tire squealing smoke.

Since you're still above the 3'15 mark, you don't need to use ANY gas input when you corner whatsoever. Just brake, stay off the pedals, then accelerate once you completely clear the turn.
That's not the fastest way, but it's better if you build up on that slowly so you can start experimenting with your own style. Starting right from the bottom lets you feel the difference.

Gosh i've been doing this wrongly all along T.T.. i'll try out ur advice and hopefully i'll report an improvement in timing.. thank you very much for your advice!

as for the tire burning part, i swear there's really ALOT of white smoke coming out from the replays..could it be something to do with the car being FT? FT cars are hard to control..

Really? I find a lesser tuned car doesn't snap to when I tell it to turn.

It could also be a machine issue? Remember to drive with minimal sideways angle. If it is the machine, then that's not your fault.

i'm currently editing a general guide for nagao... i personally feel that i'm not fast there (PB's are 3'17"4xx for dhd and 3'22"7xx for uhd), but i think i should be able to make a guide that would more or less make beginners better oriented with the map...

...and also will make a general guide for playing in the wet, as mentioned before...

=======================

YOUTUBE ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPP1ZwCaD1k )


^ beginner's guide to Nagao

my apologies for the shaky camera handling and the editing... XD

UPDATE!

Nagao and Tsukuba OB finally Shoved up there. They're probably out of date, but hey, it's a general guide, not a specific OMG I IZ TEH KING guide.

Actually, I'm pretty sure we can take an exact estimate as to when you were waiting for it if we know when you began wanting a video guide.

>w>

Speaking of guides, I finished the Intermediate Player's guide. You all know this stuff already, but they don't.

I filled it with drivers that we can all LOL at. It helps to make my point.

thanks for letting every one know... and thanks as well for the assurance that the video has been processed...

because when i was uploading it earlier during my lunch hour, i was a bit nervous since i kept on seeing the message "this video has not yet been processed"... since my break time was almost over, i just left it as is... :\

it's good to know the video's already up there... ^ ^

Unfortunately I am a specialist player, and there are some maps I never play or hate with a passion. (Wet/Uphill/Happo in general. Do not want.) So for the question if I could make other guides, that's a dead no.

However I welcome everyone else who has reasonable knowledge to make their own guide. The more variety we have, the less important I am to this thread.

Feel free to do so!
In fact, I encourage you to go on and make the guides. This makes our community stand on even influences; It's not just one or the other flinging around information.

I'd also like to add that if someone disagrees with what's written down in a guide, be vocal about it. The guides are meant to show the correct method of playing, and therefore they should be as error free as possible.
