      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...

      my R/T probably averages somewhere like .550 to .615. I have my moments where I completely fall asleep though and get like .800 and .900 or worse than I have my moments where I'm right on and I do like 5 or 6 runs in a row with near perfect Reactions... got a .500 once or twice... The timing can be tough, it's not a perfect sim of drag racing but I admit, it is pretty fun...

      Goobery, hot damn that's fast... is that with a S/C or Turbo? Nitro? I can almost get into eights when I use Nitro (200 shot) and the S/C together and Spray down the entire strip. Fastest was like a 9 Flat I think. Just getting the gear ratios correct I guess is what it takes...

      Turbo with a 200shot. They key is to spray 'out of the hole' while keeping traction to reduce turbo lag. Some guys I hear are running low 8's but I can't break the 8.60's. I'll try a super-charger next since alot of time is lost at the launch because of the turbo lag and if spray too early you'll spin all the way down the track.

      I've played with the ratio's alot and the one's I'm using now I think I have a bit more potential out of the car; but in reality, I've tried some radical things from 3-speed to 6-speed and everything in between and 8.60's is the best I can pull...There is only so much you can tune out of the car with gear ratio's. Some guys have higher HP civics, and someone before me said there is a bug that allows you to stack mods. I think is the only way anyone can break into 7's

      Yeah I had some troubles when I got started too... the game is really "cold" from the get-go. You need to work at it for a bit until you get used to how things work. Then it warms up and gets a lot more fun.
      Everyone has their own stragedy. I'll tell you mine, it seems to work for me, but I'm sure others do things differently.
      When I'm staging, I roll forward and park the front tires (Black Line) Right on or just a tiny bit before the white line seperating the two green blocks in the staging area meter on the left of the screen. This next part kinda depends on how tuned your car is and how fast it gets off the line. From here on, reaction time is completely dependant on good timing. I'm guessing you have a Civic and that it's mostly stock. It's a dog off the line stock. What I do is when the second yellow light, is lit... just before it's going to go off I shift into first. Then when the third light lits, I wait a split second and then drag the accelerator up. What happens is this... When I shift into first, the car starts to roll forward really slow. By the time the third light, lights... you have creeped closer to the edge of the staging zone. So... if you timed it right and hit the accelerator sometime during the third light, by the time you roll over the edge of the staging area there will be a green light and you will get .550 or better or worse (hey, redlights happen).. All of this depends on your car though. You will have to test it out whenever you make your car faster because it will hopefully be leaving the line faster with improvements so your timing will change.
      What I do for bracket time is use the time I run. Say in a stock civic your average run is like 15.65. Set your bracket time just slightly faster than that, like 15.63. If you set it too low you'll always lose, and the .63 is really important. Makes the race much closer and gives you a better chance than just putting 15.0. So you might do a couple runs to get a good average number to use as your bracket time.
      The last thing I learned quick is that winning money from the computer racers really isn't too hard if you race the Cup Tournaments. The Amatuer one pays 100$ per win against the 3 racers and 500$ Completion. The Sports Division cup pays 1000$ completion bonus. During the competition you can run as many times as you want until you win, so you've got nothing to lose. When I had my bracket time and launch perfected I could finish the amateur Cup in like 5 minutes. There's 800$ in no time. When I got faster I did the Sport Division with the same time, like 5 minutes to complete the whole tournament.
      Eh, thats a lot to read but I hope it helps some... Just remember when you take off the line you want to be in gear before you crank up the accelerator... it's amazing even a 160hp stock civic will spin it's tires all the way up the strip.

      is anyone else having a problem with it "saving race data"? it seems like every one of my previous 5-6 races has done this, and of course i have to exit the game, and then try to get back in with all it's "too much traffic nonsense".....GRRRRRRr this is frustrating!
