It's pretty obvious that this game is still far from dying out and not just in IDW. So I was just wondering, what do you guys usually do when playing this game?

From building your own personal collection of drag-machines to just sliding around without a care in the world, there are alot of ways to keep anyone interested in this game.

So what's YOUR way of playing it?

When I get bored, here's what I do;

-Get a Lotus Carlton, mod it to at least 500bhp, with S2 tyres. There, I head to the gymkhana and do some mad wheelspins. Here's one unique thing about the Carlton, tune it right, you'll get wheelspin even in 6th gear! Even did a test in the test track. It took 23 seconds for the wheelspin to run out in 6th gear.

-Use the same Carlton, tune it some way, but with S3s with the same 500bhp. Work your way through corners, and- yes, sliding. The carlton sure is a fun car to drive. And the engine sounds gruff too for a straight 6.

Usually I just grab a car and go drifting at Tsukuba or SSR5.

Get any car for any of the competitions, and try to win with the least amount of mods so that I'm constantly battling in a race for 150-175 A-spec points.

I usually grab some unusual car and turn it into drifter ( Honda Element/Odyssey anyone? shifty2.gif ) or then I take a really crappy car, tune it and see if it can match or beat more powerful cars.

Recently i found a way to get the sensation of drifting perfectly, a.k.a perfect angle, counter-steer, etc with the DFP

Just take a car, go to Tsu, throw it 180', put it into reverse, and look behind you so that your now running the course backwards, and then turn the OPPOSITE direction you want the car to go (so when going reverse and you want to turn right, turn left)

It gives you the sensation of perfect drifting as long as you know how to drive backwards, and with the opposed steering, you feel like its counter-steer, and that its all perfect

Other than that, doing a rally course with the Force Feedback disconnected is pretty fun

Dang, that's unique. XD Never thought of using the Oddysey for rallying, At most I used was the Aussie muscle cars; Monaro anyone?

Take a fully-tuned super-fast car, like a Toyota GT-One or whatever, race it around Nurburgring, and not take it seriously...

You can get some real sideways action, and even some airbourne action on that track...Maybe even sometimes a combination of the both...

Buy old classic cars in the Historic Showroom and tune them to the Max. Then, race them against the best of the best production vehicles, and laugh knowing you won the race with a who-knows-how-old-and-outdated Honda.

Looks like I just did it again. tongue.gif Try this; get any car, and then enter a race in Laguna Seca. Once the race starts, turn around, and wait at the base of the corkscrew. This needs timing. When you expect the AI cars coming, drive as fast as you can and collide into the AI car at the incline of the corkscrew, and there you go flying into the air like a toy. biggrin.gif Used an Evo V GSR just now XD

Well in the old GT3 the corkscrew is funny, especially with the American cars that NEVER manages to take it properly, either going insanely sideways or clearly losing control and creating a mess with cars.

For me though I usually hit a course and enjoy the car, trying to find its true limit and perhaps beat my time, I usually do this in a race for the appropiate car such as the turbo cup.

After losing all my progress, I figured I'd give it a shot and it kind of made the game more fun again although having I do miss my F1 car...

I prat around with my NSX-R. Basicaly doing races purely in 6th gear, doing that Rally Capri race without exceeding 100mph, and generally running amuck everywhere biggrin.gif

I also do the whole tune-every-Honda-to-be-a-little-monster thing, and race with silly cars. Silvia Sisters race in the D1GP S15 anyone? AND drifting the entire thing? wink2.gif

Oh yeah, I also ghost battle myself how you all did in the ghost chaser league laugh.gif

Take the 272.13mph top speed tuned GT-One and see if it can beat the 280mph top speed tuned and drafting Escudo PP Version on various courses. So far the GT-One is in the lead by 3 courses out of 9.

That, or work on the GT-One II Project. Muahah!

I've only found the Shelby Cobra to ever do that...


Know what's also fun to do? Cone pushing...Push a cone around the track and see how long you can keep one on your front bumper without it rolling off to the side and behind you...

I basically run a challenge against myself on a few tracks whenever I'm bored. It's an ongoing thing with cars with a 2.8 power to weight ratio, s2 tires. and no downforce. More often than not I find myself on seattle circuit, and for a while the top 3 cars were within .020 of each other. I keep trying to get older cars up in the top 10, but it's tough. Keeps me coming back though smile.gif

I take out the only good sounding car in the game, the Shelby Cobra, and drive it around, listening to that fscking awesome V8 rumble. Also, I bring it to school and have my auto classmates race me, in cars that are way better than mine. My record? 27-1. the only loss came on High Speed Ring, I was in the Spoon Integra, he was in a Lexus SC430, I lost by .002 seconds. Had to draft him all the way down the straight!

○I drift a random project car I bought long ago that was never even touched and take it around Deep Forest.

○I tune my 800+HP Supra and see if I can achieve good top speed, and handling, right now it takes a year for the damn car to launch from a starting line. It goes 240+ but takes so long to get to 60mph in Super Softs.

○Take some shots during photomode.

○Drift my Amuse S2000 and rack up the milage.

○Time trials seeing how fast a certain car is and can get. Recently I got a Mazda Roadster (1800)?? Well the most expensive one and I take it around random tracks.

Thats about it :]
