Yay. A dedicated thread for us at Round 1. I'll be back in socal tomorrow, not sure if I'll head over there at round 1 tomorrow night though. I wonder if I can break any of my previous times after not playing for a bit

Some general information on the new version:

1. Game is divided into 3 modes now
Story Mode, Another Story Mode, Legend Mode

Story Mode:
Last Match is against Ry FC3S on Akagi DH (Note: Ry is faster than ever on here especially on the last right hand turn similar to the anime when he pass Evo3)

Another Story Mode:
Last Match is against Tak Trueno on Tsubaki DH (Note:Tak is constantly behind you and headlights are turn off at certain points of the track)

Legend Mode:
Battle random CPU against a track of your choice.
(Note: difficulties increase as you progresses through legend mode)

2. Battles:
Battles can be from 1-4 players.
(tag team battles are very fun and different attack mode from doing instore battles)

3. Car Tuning:
Buy Parts from Spec1-Spec 5
Fastest way to tune is through story mode or tag team battles.

4. Avatar Picture:
Same system as the previous version.

5. Secret Car:
FT-86 unlockable at 1000 mileage.

6. Physics and comparison between version 4, 5, and 6:
Physics seem to be a combination of version 3 and 4.
Version 6 seem to be more fun than 4 and 5 but need some more time to tell.

7. Downside:
US still can't enter record time to compare to the rest of the world.

Fastest way to full tune is story mode, cheapest way to full tune and more bang for buck for playtime is tag battles

Anyone got the FT-86 yet?

Thanks for clarifying it Agent!

Machines are constantly crowded with people right now. I manage to get myself a card before it runs out.

Btw, if you leave "accept challengers" on for 1 on 1 battle races, you get 1 point for character roulette wheel if you finish a race with accept challengers on without anyone racing you.

And yeah, if i see someone with accept challengers, i want to jump in on it, haha....


PS. cmon, i know a number of you guys are lurking around here (you know who you are). make an account already and join the fun. haha.

Avatar seems to have more part changes in this version as well. And same here with challenges. Hard to walk away when 3 machines have accept challenges since tag team battles always make the crowd bigger.

One thing to note in battles is that ramming if often seen in tag team battles. I been seeing a lot of ramming lately from beginning to end since winning is determine by total points not by finishing the race first.
Below is an example of a tag team match.

Happo seems much harder to master than the previous version too. Knowing when and when not to drift is crucial in this game.

Hey mattx! That mean you got a lot of catching up to do then since tsukuba, nagao, tsubaki, and true usui have all came out since then. I think the good thing is that the physics here resemble more of 3 and 4 so you could have skip 5 since its completely different.

Hey! Version 6 is fun so far. Graphic got a bit better but not by much. Physics is a major change here. Even though the game is new, a lot of people have already started to battle.

It's pretty cool first glance but wonder how slippery it is.

I'm not sure if you guys will have in store tag battle with only two machines. You should be able to do a tag battle vs cpu though...

Add: 10:55 PM, 6/23/11
Woops, 6 more days from this edit until records are set in the monthly tag records. The machines seem like theyre on japan time, so yeah. We going to see tag battles tomorrow?
