December 11th, 2006 - car ranking edits by Coastal

**UPDATED August 30th, 2006**

Hey all! I just thought I should post up this site that I got from Excel.. it's the newest CAR RANKING site that you can configure so that it shows the best car for dry, wet, snow, and overall. You can also configure it so that you can choose the best car for a specific set of courses.

Example: If you check Happo, Shom, and Tsu both directions then click "GO!" then the next screen will show you car rankings for those three courses alone! This way you'll be able to pick a car that's good on those 3 courses!

I'm sure this could help you guys tremendously in car selection!

Here: http://initial-d.info/perf/index.jsp

- Coastal

This FAQ answers the simple questions for Ver.3 If you have other questions, please post the question instead of replying to this thread. Lets keep the traffic flowing and minds thinking!

New stuff in the game?
New cars are

1. ER34
2. Evo5
3. Evo6
4. RX8

New Courses

1. Tsuchizaka
2. Shoumaru
3. Akina Snow


Best car in the game?
There really isnt a best car in the game, but looking at the IR, the overall best car is the RX8 followed by the Cappaciuno. In wet, the R32 dominates

Can you transfer from ver2
Pretty stupid question.but will put it up here. You can transfer...you lose all your TA times and levels n stars n all that. You keep your pts..but if u have fulltune car from v2 and u transfer, your car has 0pts..but u gain back an upgrade after each game until fulltune. Bug cars will TRANSFER

Bunta Challenge
Bunta is now playing on ALL courses...including Myogi and Usui. Bunta is much harder now than before. Also, each BUNTA stage consists of 15stars. My friends/teammate have defeated 15star bunta and usui. You need a 2:55 for myogi and 2:50 for usui. Supposedly all cars can defeat every bunta..but i dont think that is true

Does the game feel like Ver1?
Now..this honestly is MY personal opinion..and i have mixed feelings..others around the world almsot feel the same as i do. Akina...It feels MORE like ver1 with ver2 techniques like 5in4out fient. You can no longer take the S turn at full throttle(unless u drive AE86) To me..its a slower ver2..lol

Which car for which track?
Well..heres the run down
*UNKNOWN* means that the IR is still very mixed and its not settled

Myogi Dry = Capp
Myogi Left Wet = R32
Myogi Right Wet = R34
Usui Dry = Sil80
Usui Wet = RX-8
Akagi DHD = RX-8
Akagi UHD = EvoIII
Akagi Wet = R32
Akina DH = AE86
Akina UH = GC8V
Akina Wet = GC8V
Akina DH Snow = Celica GT-4 (*read comment*)
Akina UH Snow = R34
Happou OB = EK9
Happou IB = EG6 the MR2 is also quite good..Roma did 2:19 with the MR2
Happou WET = RX8
Iroha = EVO4
Shoumaru Left = Cappuccino
Shoumaru Right = RX-8
Shoumaru WET = R32
Tsuchizaka = EVO5
Tsuchizaka WET = R32

* The celica is currently on top, but the ranking shows all 4wd cars can run the same times....check (http://idforums.net/index.php?act=ST&f=29&t=5002) to see why.

Why is the cappaciuno fastest on Myogi rite now?
Simple. You can FULL THROTTLE thru the whole course, so of course, wutever car with the highest topspeed will be king. Unfortunatly for the capp, you will need to scrape the INSIDE apex of the grande curve(is that wut its called) to keep the speed where as the R32 dont.

Cars have BOV(blow off valve) sounds
Yep..it sounds like a sneeze tho..lol

Does the oil on Tsuchizaka help?
It helps mainly on outbound battles when passing your opponent. TA-wise, not so much.

The computer blocks?
Yes, when you race LOTS, the computer now blocks you. When u race at night, just turn off the lights and you will fool the computer. TAKUMI NINJA STYLE ATTACK fear2.gif

Music???
All new music..xept intro is still gamble rumble..heres the rundown

0. Gamble Rumble (Intro)
1. Speedy Speed Boy
2. Remember Me
3. Save Me
4. Over the Rainbow
5. Stop Your Self Control
6. Crazy for Love
7. Express Love
8. Black Out
9. Fall in the Web of Desire
10. Pamela
11. Fight for Love Tonight
12. Dancing in my Dreams (Ending Theme)

Is the GC8V (Bunta car) selectable?
at the car selection screen
gear up 6times
gear down twice
press brake and view change

How come Keisuke uses Kyoko's FD when he battles you on Tsuchizaka
If you read the manga, the Evo people put oil on the track that caused his on FD to crash, so he borrowed Kyoko's FD to race the EVO people

What is 5in4out fient technique
This technique can be used in Ver2 as well.. bascially you fient brake and enter the corner, you snap to 4th gear when you exit or reach the apex. Your exit should be very fast. Akina and Akagi is a popular place to use this technique. This technique takes PRACTICE and i mean LOTS of practice. The top players in the world use this and it is ESSENTIAL for a fast time

Do Points Really Make a Difference?
Yes, they do, the difference between stock and BT is about 3-4 seconds...but only accel wise, and obviously, the driver is the most important factor in what time you get

Why can't I register on the IR?
E-mail accounts that are free i.e. yahoo, hotmail, etc. cannot be used and an email from an ISP is required.

Hopefully this answers all the questions you have.

As a mod on the v3 forum and someone with experience
i would not like to see the following

1. Lying about an IR time is NOT TOLERATED
2. Questions are WELCOMED
3. Ver3 questions only(comparisons with v2 is OK)
4. If you have a question, dont place on the FAQ thread, lets get some discussion going in the v3 forum and generate traffic
5. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. If a member has an issue they have with a specific topic...go ahead..argue...at the end of the day, i would like to hear wut others have to say regarding the topic. Forums are OPEN discussion, but please no heavy flaming
6. Dont ask..what is the best car..blahblahblah..u get the point...

Simple? you betcha!

Erm...there is something I do not understand which is about the star given or printed on your card...How is it given?

I saw from other post saying

8 stars from completing the game 1st time. (LOTS)
1 more if you complete the game the second time. (LOTS)
1 more if you complete the game the third time. (LOTS)

For the Bunta Challange
1 star for every 1 map completed (level 15 of bunta)
There are 10 starts from there altogether.

Lastly is form the level of your car...
1 star given for every 3 level

Question:
1)For bunta Challange there are only 9 map so how am i suppose to get the last star?
2)Is there a maximum level for ours car?

1) To get a star from the Bunta Challenge you beat bunta once on each course getting u a star. u can do this until you have 10 stars on each course for bunta challenge. you do not need to complete the last 5 stars for each course to get stars.
2)I think the maximum level is 99? but i doubt anyone would go that far..

I apologize in advance if this has been addressed already...
I have completed LOTS 2x, however, I was defeated by Bunta on Akina in the very last race. Do I have to defeat Bunta so that my 3rd run through LOTS is counted? Furthermore, are the racing conditions dry or wet when going through LOTS for the third time? Thank you, help is greatly appreciated.

1. No, you don't have to beat Bunta.
2. Third time through LoTS yields no change in racing conditions.

There are mistakes in your FAQ:

1. RX-8 is 1st, R32 is 2nd, GC8V is 3rd. Capp. is all the way down at 13th.

2. Capp. is on top for Myogi both ways.

3. R34 is on top for Akina Snow

4. RX-8 is top for Shomaru

5. It's not really necessary putting what car is best on what course for wet because we all know that R32 poons everything wet.

1. Are you talking about overall dry rankings? If so... I believe you're wrong.

3. R34 owns Snow UH, ST205 owns Snow DH.

4. RX-8 owns Shomaru IB, Capp takes OB.

5. R32 owns everything wet except the following:

Myogi CWW
Usui both ways
Akina both ways
Iro both ways
Happo both ways

1. No, I mean overall. By overall I mean DRY, WET, AND SNOW added up. Note that the list on InitialD.org is just for each condition. I took their list for each condition, added up the points each car got, and I got my overall ranking list. To this day I have not seen a list like this anywhere on InitialD.org, if anyone wants my list, PM me or IM me on AIM.

5. R32 still owns Myogi CCW Wet

1. Well if you've got a list and it's not this one, then you should request an update for that thread.

5. I never said the R32 DIDN'T own CCWW. I said it didn't own CWW.

1. I already posted my list on this page.

5. Kinda confusing if by CWW you mean "Counter-Clockwise Way", because most people just say either CCW for "Counter-Clockwise" or CW for Clockwise"

Hmm I dunno.

You see, what I'm used to saying, is like if I wanna say "Myogi Clockwise Wet", then I'll say "CW Wet". Or if I'm trying to say "Counterclockwise Wet", I'll say "CCW Wet". I usually don't leave the abbreviation of the condition in there. Like when people say Akina DHD....I would just say Akina DH Dry.

Ah, two birds sing the song differently.

But if you look at CWW...

you know for example the accelerator has a few levels right if you noticed? what about the brake? does it have those levels or is it just pressure sensitive?
