Actually the point with the drift cars is to have insanely close gear ratios so that you can spin the tires at all speeds in most gears. If I'm not mistaken (drifters please correct me) but controlling your drift is a combination of entry speed, gear choice and throttle control!

if you grab any of the drift tunes off the SF usually they're tuned for "points" drifting, and if you check the telemetry, they're usually running about 55 psi both front and rear to keep the car sliding all the time and that makes them handle like crap. I stopped buying drift tunes off the SF when I caught on...

The next bounty for this month will be from club D2NR (I think that id Dirt tuned racing) meaning that if my assumption of the club name is correct, the prize car will be a d-type jag. the livery on it is hideous, but that car accelerates like nothing else in its class (except maybe the aston dbr1 Wink )

I just found out about the next bounty hunter challenge. It will be the Autumn Fallout challenge and the prize car will be a D Type Jag. The best time right now is a 1:36.9. I ran a full second better than that in the lancia 037 that I have in the club garage. Good luck to everybody!

F1SH0 has improved his time (but not by much) to a 1:36.723. So far it looks like I am still safe for this one. Congrats to frank and mark who have pretty much secured the bounty car already! The times that you guys posted are great

On the FM4 thread it says he has settled on using the 370z, so it looks like it will be tough for him to beat any time below maybe a 1:36.3...

He just updated his time again to a 1:36.550. We have until thursday to beat this guy so grab frank's NSXR GT from the club garage and give it a try!

And lou, I was looking on some of the posts in the FM4 forums and some people think there might not be a unicorn given out for this month. it will either be that or T10 will decide which one they feel like giving out without making a poll...

I was able to put up a 0:01:37.294 last night... The lap was far from perfect and I know I have a Second or more left in that car... I was too tired to continue, but I will be running against Southern or Beef now since they do not have ghosts (I HATE ghosts)... I will also turn mine off moving forward. This way you can choose me as a rival and not have to race the ghost. It's nice to have that option! Wink

GREAT TUNE FRANK... That car is truly INSANE!!!! Very Happy

That reminds me, I adjusted the caster angle like you told me to and it really improved the way the car rides. I will send an updated version to the club garage the next time I am online. Thanks for the tip!

It probably won't be updated in the club garage until wednesday. I don't have much time to get on the Xbox during the week other than that.

It also makes taking the last corner easier. You can take it at 145 to 150 mph with the new tune

We have 2 more days to beat this guy, so I will be updating my lancia as soon as I get home today. Go ahead and try out the new tune, it should produce a pretty good time Very Happy

I will disagree on the ghosts. That's one of the best ways to learn. Yeah, you can watch the replay. But racing that ghost really helps. You can learn what others are doing, see where you're losing time, see where you're gaining time, etc.

Aside from the "pressure", it's a great tool. I for one love it. However, if there was an option to not race ghosts, that'd be good.

As an example, Lou, you are braking too early for turn 5 (the long left). I know I gained a lot of ground from you there. And at the uphill section, I'm guessing you let up(?), you lost more ground there. Without a ghost, I wouldn't be able to point this out to you. And you might not be able to see where you are losing time.

Granted, I do watch replays as well. Gives an idea of what I could/ should be doing.

Sometimes the ghosts are distracting and can obscure your vision, especially on corners and autocross. I generally think they're helpful for reasons marm stated. It would be nice to have the option to turn them off though.
