its sad... i cant get any better than .3's.. at the track i was getting consistant .19's. oh well damn comps. FAIL..
Just try to relax when you do it and I know this sounds strange but it actually feels different to me when I am getting the low RT's.AgTitan06 said:This is frigin hard! I can't get better than .27's! I did get a .063, but that had to have been pure luck!
Am I allowed to play with you or I am banned from last time RT game...lolPapa_D said:Just try to relax when you do it and I know this sounds strange but it actually feels different to me when I am getting the low RT's.
It's almost as if it's in slow motion or something and it is very much more automatic than calculated.
Obewan was right, the force does flow through everything, lol.
Lol, you can play, this one won't allow just clicking the keyboard randomly though, lol. It gives you a 1 second penalty if you click early. Good luck man. Hey wait a minute, do they even have "Home Depot" over there?Qaher said:Am I allowed to play with you or I am banned from last time RT game...lol
Those RT's are great and it may take Yoda himself to beat you, lol.gweasel77 said:
It's tough to get it right at the track all the time without slicks. Track conditions change with the weather as well as the degree of track prep that they do and you just have to play it by ear. Sometimes it's better than the street and sometimes it's worse. I wish I could be more help than that but it is very unpredictable.gweasel77 said:I tried to send this to you, Papa_D, as a PM, but your box is FULL. So, here:
OK Papa_D, i've got a good/safe place where i've been practicing my launches. I can tell when i get it just right. Seems like a stall around 600-1000rpm. is optimal. Any more & there's just too much wheelspin.
I think the trick is, applying the right amount of gas after the stall. It's hard not to give it too much at first. The times i did the best, the wheels only spun very briefly. Then when they stopped spinning, i pressed it all the way & it downshifted & took off!
But, when i get it wrong i either spin out big time or it just doesn't downshift & the speed climbs slower. Is there a trick to getting it right more often? Just practice, huh. Man, i'm so excited about the 24th.
What's the track like, traction wise? More or less than the street? I think i'll do really well, if i can give it the right amount of gas after the stall. Thanks "MUCH".
LOL dont worry i cant even break out of the .2......fatter and slower maybe but definately better. TWII here we go!!Papa_D said:I tell you what man, if you can beat Gweasel77, and some of these other quick guys without having any anticipated lights thrown in there, I'll give you cash at Truck Wars II instead of the gift card, lol. Good luck beating some of these young guys, we get fatter and slower as we get older, lol. See you at TWII and at least you will have a few hundred lights under your belt by then.
Wiser for certain buddy, TWII is gonna be awesome and I am so Jazzed about it, more than the first one, lol.float_test said:LOL dont worry i cant even break out of the .2......fatter and slower maybe but definately better. TWII here we go!!
No problem, I will also have a set of stop sticks handy if you get too fast for the older guys like me, lol.gweasel77 said:That great info man, thanks. Yeah, i think i'm getting now. It's just going to take some practice at the track, to get it down for sure. There's a lot of variables, as you said. It's unpredictable. All that addrenaline, track prep., weather. It's a lot diferent than just pushing a button on the mouse. LOL!
Also, i'm really looking forward to checking out everyone else's rides! Mine is the only modded Titan i've ever ridden in or been up close to, to check out. Ah... man, it's going to be FUN!
