    Thread: Anyone play Nitto 1320??

    1. 02-08-2003 04:19 PM #26
      Best time I got today playing with the gears: 8.669et I ran out of 6th gear just shy of the line, and may have been able to squeeze a bit more out of the car. I can't see myself running anything faster than 8.59 given all the perfect conditions. I don't know what those guys running in the 7s are doing to get so much more hp, may car is maxxed.

      Is it just me or do they need a better server to handle the traffic? I've run 1 race and I've had it downloaded for a while now lol . Everytime I try it's overloaded with traffic... I don't really have the patience to sit around and keep trying I guess....
      Edit> Eh, On a whim I tried to log in tonight and actually got in for a while. I royally suck, or I need serious help... haha Not a bad game but people on there take it WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too seriously...

      Ah it's a free game I wouldn't complain about the servers just play in the off hours. I suck pretty bad too...I'm just wondering what is the point of making you car fast since you are racing against you Et?

      You know what's kind of crappy and I don't know if it's just me, but when you are staging, you can roll forward and then lay on the brakes. The car will continue to roll forward even with the brakes on full and Pre-stage... uh, ok. Then with the brakes still on full it rolls forward and stages. Wow, some really crappy brakes... but I guess it could be sort of a helper so staging would be easier. Except, even with the brakes still full on the car continues to roll And will even roll out of staging, redlight and foul. Is anyone else having the same problem?

      Yeah, I messed with it and realized it doesn't assume you're pushing the clutch it when trying to come to a stop... but oh well... it doesn't help me win at all anyway, against the computer racers anyways lol... I'm just going to delete this game. It's alright but I rarely get on when I try... and really, the game itself is an impressive piece of flash work but the people on there really need to get out and actually drive more, but then I remember most of them are 14 or younger and don't actually even have a license... (I don't mean that about anyone here) It's far more work to win money than I'm really interested in spending time on... but it is a cool free game and a cool way for Nitto to advertise...

      this game is awsome, I am sick though because when it was in beta I had all the cars hooked all the way up including the skyline, but when the game hit the streets they cleared all the beta accounts to stock. Also it is way better to have supercharger so u can accel faster I have gotton 8.0 flat with the right ratio in the beta. If u guys start a team let me know e mail me

      Heh, I managed to get hooked into this game afterall. It kinda hangs on you and once you start winning money even against the computer racers... it gets to be more fun. I joined up with the Bidness Men team just today. I've got a 518hp Civic using a supercharger... also have a 200shot of NOS that I rarely use because it means changing my gear ratios to be a little longer and I like running with just the SC. Not like filling the NOS tank is all that expensive... just kinda annoying changing ratios back and forth too. Pulling anywhere from 9.6 to 9.9 with the SC and 9.3 to 9 flat with the Nitrous...
      If it wasn't for all the snow recently I probably wouldn't have played this game any more. It forced me to stay inside and not be able to go out, which in turn got me hooked into the game...
