Default Drag Racing

Ok so this is my first post guys so take it easy on me. I have this app called drag racing and was wondering if anyone else has this app and if you could help me out. In the game it says that the AI shows you how to drive well but not the best so if someone could tell me how to drive better that would be great. Also could you tell me what car you think is the best?

My car is the Koenigsegg Agera R

Start in 2nd gear and hit the nitrious as soon as the light goes green, ive been winning a ton of races like that.

U have a great car. Driving each car is different. If we have the same app then there is a setting called "Vibrations" turn it on. It will help u feel ur car out a lil better. The above responder stated that u should "start" in second gear. In the app its not possible to switch gears before the lil chick drops the flag, so here is what u do...

1.) When starting, rev your engine to the point where the tachometer (Shift light) turns green. Hold it there until the race starts, u will start off with an extra boost.

2.) With the Koenigsegg Agera R, as soon as u "Go!" off the starting line, immediately shift up to 3rd gear. This will give u an additional boost, as the engine RPM'swill match better with the higher gear. (Note: Better tires, and a lighter weight car give u better grip at all shift points, thus, better acceleration).

3.) After shifting to 3rd gear, allow the RPM gage "catch up" and wait for the tachometer to light up in blue (Good shift). As soon as u shift into 4th gear, Hit the Nitrous. This is the final boost to your engine in the acceleration, and it will push u to ur max speed faster.

4.) After you hit the nitrous in 4th gear, try to perfect shift the rest of the way to 7th gear. It will help with the acceleration of the car as well.

Summary: Let the gear shifting attribute to the acceleration of the car in the initial launch as it will allow for the nitrous to act as a secondary booster toward the middle of the drag strip allowing the car to push to its max speed at a much faster rate than it would if used in the beginning of the race.

Good luck. Hope this helps.

Real life drag-racing and this game are of course two different things, but with a little effort you can figure out the gameplay mechanics and necessary strategies to succeed. On average most of the little launch in 2nd gear and hitting the nitrous in either 2nd or 3rd works pretty good, but not all the cars work the same. The heavier top-end sleds as I call them, while powerful but heavy they tend to like the nitrous in 3rd only and launch with 1st gear with minimal wheel-spin. Then there is the Bugatti Veyron SS, the world guiness record holding 268mph 1202 bhp beast, stock for stock against the Ultimate Aero in Drivers Battle the Aero smokes the SS most of the time, frusting and bad programming on Creative's part, it's just a game as they say. LOL so I decided to test something, sold the Bugatti Veyron SS and bougth the Aero...well guess what, stock for stock the Bugatti SS smoked the Aero time and time again. I'm consisten too, while this is a game I do drag race in real life and I built my last two cars, the latest which runs high 10's 1/4 n/a (no power adders). So I determined along with some friends and a little bit of testing that either the online mode is altogether just fake/prettend programming to display their ads and make money or just inadequate game programming. I'm waiting on a reply on this from Creative, we've been communicating back and forth on some other bugs of which one they fixed the following day I notified them. They do seem to care and are working supposedly on a full blown online with username/etc option, we'll see.

Bottom line I decided to sell the Aero, bought another Bugatti SS and am just satisfied knowing this car bone stock has the best grip of any car. This was an expensive purchase of a Bugatti SS, sold it, bought an Aero @$2mil, sold that bought another SS..sheesh...but here's a tip, just do the Drivers Battles, for one it helps you learn the best launch/shift techniques per car, which are all a bit different and two it's the quickest way in this game to earn money/respect.


Now the Henn Venom GT, well I had doubts, but pulled it up online, sure enough it's a real deal vehicle, 1 mph slower @267 and 2 bhp less than the Bugatti SS. I personally think it's an ugly car the Venom GT but I think less of John Hennessey (the Viper guy) due to his former crooked business practices. He lost a lot of respect and has become a bad name in the business, how he has remained in business is amazing to many.

Hello everybody......I also have this game and think it is awsome but I also need some help. I have the Aero TT fully upgraded with the tuning option. How do I gear this thing and run it to hit the 10s? My best runs so far have been 11.03s (1/2mile), I have raced other Aero TTs that are running in the 10s so I think it can be done. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Start from the default, then adjust one gear .50 one way, then the other, test, and keep an eye on the 0-60 & 0-100 times, as well as max speed, the lower 0-x times the better, and higher max speed the better.

Basic tutorial for the game, "get as fast as you can as quick as you can" not as easy as it sounds.

A "perfect launch" is NOT the best launch, especially for higher class cars.

Start with a Clio sport, then get an M3, fully mod the M3 and tune it, and you can get sub 14.500 for the 1/2 mile, ive been raking wins all day, best 1/2 mile time with the M3 is 14.488. with the M3 redline the revs and launch in 2nd, you can still get a "perfect shift" instead of a "perfect launch" and your looking at 14.x for the 1/2 mile times straight away.

Use the M3 to save up cash and get the koenigsegg, NEARLY max the upgrades to keep it in lvl 8, and you'll blitz everything in lvl8. With this car tho launch in 3rd not 2nd, same deal.

Use that to save up for the Aero and same story again, but launch in 2nd as it only has 6 gears unlike the koenigsegg's 7.

Does anyone know if they nerfed the skyline? I have it maxed out and can barely pull under 11 (10.9 usually). Any suggestions on tuning?

EDIT: The lotus still kicks my ass once it uses 3rd gear turbo..

Does anybody know how it seems some "online" racers are getting an extra boost of speed at the end after they already used the NOS? I've been in the level 7 race with the Ferrari, I max out at 238mph and then the other guy just blows right by me. How is that possible?

Hahaha I love that ferrari 599! .....its because its been tuned... I don't understand it well myself but you'll notice how it (599) runs out of juice before the end of the 1/2 mile? Well if you experiment with the final drive in the tuning option, you can get a bit more out of it that does, as you say, seem like an extra nitro..... I love doing it though!

Okay, so I'm doing the driver's battles and there's one trick I haven't been able to figure out. I'm a level 10 and whenever the SSC Ultimate Aero TT comes up, I do the following:

Redline at the start and immediately shift to 3rd gear.
When RPM's reach 4,750 shift into 4th gear.
As soon as the RPM's reach 6,500 in 4th gear, hit nitrous and quickly shift to 5th
Shift to 6th at 7,100 rpm.

I usually come across the finish redlining in 6th gear at 276mph...
But here's the kicker... I've been passed... How does one make their car go faster past redline? What's the trick to do this? It's happened to me a handful of times and I don't understand how someone with the exact same car as me is gets a boost and ends up traveling faster than me, thus beating me when I've already hit the "top speed."

Thanks

I love this game! I'm fine tuning a Mustang Shelby GT500 right now. My best time is 9.699 in the 1/4 but I normally get 9.7002-9.711 or so if I time my launch correctly. Is anyone getting better times with a Mustang?

this game is so addictive! after updating, i see a few changes.
first of all, in the upgrading place, there is a new button that says "tune".
it tells you the price of the tuning package and the respect. has anyone tried this? is it cheaper compared to upgrading parts one by one, and does it upgrade everything?

also, which of the final 3 cars would be the best to invest all the money and respect into?
ultimate aero, bugatti, or the super expensive venom GT?

You need to upgrade AND tune. Tune kits cost a lot of RPs but they can do wonders for your car and the price of the tune kit does NOT count against the level of your car. Once you buy the tune kit, you can use it on that car forever. You can change the set up over an over to find what works best for your car and the distance you are trying to optimize.

^It's hard to say... I love my lvl 9 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 and my lvl 10 Hennessey Venom GT. But I also have a Lvl 4 tuned Porsche 911 Carrera 997 and lvl 6 Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera.

Again, does anyone know the answer to this?

Here are some tips for the Ferarri 599 Novitec Rosso. I was really struggling with this game but have now accumulated $1.8m via the "online" mode using this method, it allows you to win virtually any race on the 1/2m mode.

The car is maxed on all upgrades, but since the online mode pits equivalent level vehicles at you, this technique will probably work regardless of upgrades.

* Try to get a perfect launch.
* Shift up to second instantly.
* Shift to third at 4k rpm.
* Shift to fourth at 7k rpm.
* Shift to 5th at 9k rpm, try to achieve 'perfect shift'.
* Instantly apply NOS in 5th.
* Shift to 6th at 9k rpm, try to achieve 'perfect shift'

Occasionally some opponent cars still win, they seem to whiz past me at the final second, but this only happens probably 3 in 10 races using this technique. I am able to achieve a 1/2m of 12.611s.

Default Best high level car?

I have a maxed out Ferrari 599 Novitec and a level 3 Lotus Elise as well as about $500,000

If I sell both cars I will have about $1.75 million

should i sell the 599 and buy an Aero, or should I earn some more money and buy either a Veyron SS or Hennessey Venom?

I just bought the Agera R and so far its holding up well in the 1/4 mile, but im worried that when I jump up a level that it may become useless. is this the case or does the agera hold up well until the hennesy or veyron?

They updated the game again today! Now there is an option to buy respect points. There's some wasys to get free ones by installing other 3rd party apps/games. They also added bonuses for perfect shifts...

Ghostcloak - re your question about being passed at redline. I'm guessing your opponent's gears and drive ratio allow a higher top end than yours does.

So I am having this problem as well (where the 599 hits redline at 6th gear and opponents blow by me at the last second on the 1/2 mile) but i am having the problem on head to head. So there must be some way to get that last boost since the head to head mode uses the same exact cars. As far as I know you can't change the final drive or tune the cars in head to head right? Does anyone know how to get that little boost at the end? It's like people are hacking in a 7th gear or something...

But this can't be possible on a Driver's Battle.

Race Description: You and your online opponent will be driving identical cars. Win the battle of skill to get the prize.

So how is I still get blown by a handful of guys (maybe 1 out of every 50 races it's like this) even though my Ultimate Aero is redlined and going 276mph? If we have the same identical car (and setup I assume), how are they boosting past redline? There's only 6 gears... lol. I don't get it

i also updated today and found it a bit easier to get RP and money.
but i also spend money to tune the bugatti veyron 16.4 and wow.. such money wasted.. because I have no idea how to tune it at all..
the only obvious thing i know how to tune is the nitro.

can someone explain how the tuning works, or what is a good setup? i played around with it, and all my tuning did was make my car crap

The car is maxed on all upgrades, but since the online mode pits equivalent level vehicles at you, this technique will probably work regardless of upgrades.

* Try to get a perfect launch.
* Shift up to second instantly.
* Shift to third at 4k rpm.
* Shift to fourth at 7k rpm.
* Shift to 5th at 9k rpm, try to achieve 'perfect shift'.
* Instantly apply NOS in 5th.
* Shift to 6th at 9k rpm, try to achieve 'perfect shift'

Occasionally some opponent cars still win, they seem to whiz past me at the final second, but this only happens probably 3 in 10 races using this technique. I am able to achieve a 1/2m of 12.611s.
This is a decent strategy but not the best with the proper tuning and timing I run my 599 at constant 12.440's sometimes faster. When most other 599's redline in 6th im still beastin out in 5th. I don't even have to shift out of 5th to win a 1/2 mile current top speed(in 5th gear) 258mph.

Then of course on the 1/4 I love dusting off those green lambos. They'll be ahead till the last fraction of a second when the 599's superior top speed puts them to shame.

That's what I was saying in my post, but I doubt anybody will tell us their secrets.

Oh yeah i meant Driver's battle in my last post as well. It's ridiculous that people can get that boost at the end.

What are you running in the 1/4 with your 559? I haven't lost to a 559 in the 1/4 with my Lambo for weeks. Now that they added tuning the 559 has no chance in the 1/4.

I average 8.544 in the 1/4 with the green lambo. Others are now getting as low as 8.527, I can't figure out how the hell they are going that fast!

Currently tinkering with my tuning 12.440's were good enough "I thought" but I've been running into the occasional 12.260's in the tournaments..... and I want my 5th star lol

Alright I'm about to give up... I have a low-grade level 10 Venom GT and am trying to earn money for its upgrades via drivers battles; not fast enough for face-to-face yet.

Although I have NO idea how to launch these things.

Someone somewhere suggested:
1) Achieve perfect launch
2) Immediately shift to second and ride it out to a perfect shift to 3rd
3) Hit nitrous after shifting into 3rd
Used this for a bit but identical Venoms were still leaving me in the dust at launch.

Then I tried:
1) Achieve a perfect launch
2) Shift immediately into second
3) Shift early into 3rd at 4k rpm
4) Wait for nitrous until just before redline, where traction is usually gained
5) Perfect shift remaining gears
While this is slightly better than the previous method, I still get slaughtered by opponents at launch.
Would someone please help me with these shift points? I am ridiculously frustrated.

Are you getting slaughtered by other Venoms, or just other cars in general? Some cars are awesome at launching, other cars need time to get going. Depending on who is beating you, may just depend on the car they're driving.

I still have yet to figure out the Venom as well. Now that there's tuning in the game, it makes it way harder to figure out what other people are doing. I think they should add in some kind of visual shift indicator on other ppl's cars, so you can see when they shift.

Before they added tuning, you could just see when someone else driving the same car pulled away from you. then you could improve your driving based on that feedback. Now, it's anyone's game.

I've been stuck trying to drop another hundredth off my lambo speed.

Whenever I do drivers battles and we have the exact same Venom, I get slaughtered. I just tried shifting early till 4th before nitrous and it helped a little, gonna polish it a bit then I can post results if anyone is interested. I guess it really depends on what mods the game has applied to the cars.

I had the lambo awhile back and can't remember for the life of me how I launched it... It was great though. I'd suggest keeping that until you have enough money for the Agera, then upgrade it until just short of crossing into level 9. It was a GREAT money maker for me, if launched right it really seemed unstoppable.

I have cars for every level (for Pro tourney), but I still pretty much just race the Lambo now, lol. I guess when I get bored, I'll try mastering another car. Today I played enough to move my lambo level 7 rank from 3000+ to 20, lol.

Before they went live, I was in the top 10 on the Beta they had. If you are looking for tips, I suggest you troll their Facebook page for any tips others may post. Some people are nice enough (stupid?) to post their tunes for others to use.

My current lambo tune I got that way! I'm only about 0.015 from the fasted lambo times I've come across. Not bad.

If you have any tips for the Venom, please let me know. I'll put some time into that car probably next week. I have 2.5 mill to dump into my Venom now for more upgrades. Mine is already a level 10 I believe.

This is the EXACT problem that I am having. I simply can't understand how someone can blow off the line that much faster with an identical car in the Driver's Battle.

I would really like to know the trick for the best way to run with the Venom GT.

Im still messin.around with the venom myself BUT I do have a treat for you all :-)

After a couple hours of.tuning I finally got my 599 to run constant 12.420's sooo im going to release my old 12.440 tune for the public use.

Ferrari 599 Novitec Rosso
Nitrous : 135%
Final Drive : 2.005
1st : 3.322
2nd : 2.662
3rd : 2.098
4th : 1.732
5th : 1.467
6th : 1.283

This is an over rev tune in other words floor the sucker on theline don't waste time getting a good/perfect launch they will slow u down. As soon as the race starts shift into second. When done properly u will receive a perfect shift. Ride second gear out (RESISIT THE URGE TO SHIFT EARLY) second gear will take a moment. As soon as you shift into third use the juice every millisecond counts here. Shift into 4th and then 5th as you please DO NOT shift into 6th gear EVER! ride 5th all the way to.the finish even when your little red light comes on do not shift over 5th gear.

Enjoy :-)

Off the line, that's just launch technique. If they're passing you at the end of the run, that's most likely timing for the N2O.

I've been running in to this problem too. I tried searching around and haven't found any hacks or hints or cheats or anything like that. I have no clue how people are doing it but it's frustrating especially when I was winning up until their little "special-boost".

Here's what I do with the Venom
1) F-that perfect launch crap. Aim for your RPMs to be just above "perfect".
2) IMMEDIATELY shift into 3rd gear
3) At 6k RPMs hit the N2O
4) Go for perfect shifts into 4th, 5th, and just past perfect into 6th.
5) Win. I've run into the 10's with that strategy.

Here's what I do with the Aero TT
1) Start with your RPM's just above perfect again
2) IMMEDIATELY shift into 3rd
3) At 5500/6k RPM's shift to 4th
4) Perfect shift into 5th
5) IMMEDIATELY hit N2O
6) Perfect shift into 6th

Just ran an 11.099 at 276mph with the above strategy. And then an 11.001 with the Venom using the above strategy.
