well i have seen people taking the gutters...from what ive seen it just lets you take the corners at a higher speed then usual....

And for the part where people are saying that you go faster....well of course you do if you accelerate on the turn....

Ive read that the gutters just let you take the corner better at a higher speed and that it holds you in while taking that speed...(does that make sense?)

Most of the hairpins, and he does go "faster" then normal but doesnt accelerate any. This guy is in 5th gear most of the time, and only goes into 4th for the hairpins. Really doubt you could be pulling a 2:51, in an fd, and suck at the hairpins.

Not sure... but I doubt that it's really possible to get that fast and NOT gutter.

Man what is with all the Arcade stage newbies these days? Talk about Tokyopop Invasion. Anyways, Gutters you CAN gain speed on some of them, others you can just take faster than not taking them, but you still lose a little bit of speed.

i think hes under the impression that you are saying the gutters give you a video game style boost in speed, but they dont, you just accelerate out of them like any other corner, you just have more grip so you can accelerate more than if you werent in the gutter.

The real basis of the gutters is to let you exit out of a turn at a much higher speed then normally.

From what you said you made it seem like you accelerate the entire way through the gutter. I know all they do is let you take the turn at a higher speed, i use them myself. Akina in my FD is my favorite course, I like not having the best car on the track and being able to beat a decently skilled trueno, cap... i just have to accelerate faster and block, or leave the boost on (Im going to level the playing field any way i can against a course king so screw your opinions!... unles u agree with it then ur kewl)
