I'm in class A and had to buy a car for that American Muscle car race, really hate those cars, lol. I brought the Ford GT thing but it's a right pain to drive, I'm skidding off the track going down straights, lol.
Anyone got any tips how to set this car up in the driver options. I have tried taking traction off and on full but I'm getting nowhere fast. Thanks for any help.
Thanks for replies both of you. I did manage to finish second although I don't know how, it was like bumper cars at times. This is the first race where I haven't enjoyed it.
I will give it another go though and try both your suggestions, I thought I had got the wrong car as well but I will try your suggestions. Thanks again.
PS. When do you get to actually tune youe cars? Is it straight forward?
Use a Corvette, switch everything off and go reeeaally easy on the gas. The trick here is to earn respect for the accelerator and not to use it as an 'off-on' switch. Use the accelerator sparingly and only put the boot in when the road is straight and the car isn't unbalanced. Otherwise you'll need to feed the power in very gradually and be prepared to lift very quickly and ease up on the steering if you detect a spin coming on.
I've got a mate who can't wrap his head around the Corvette (I can't either) and is having a very hard time adjusting to the monster torque and power. It took him around 12 hours of trying before he finally got it, but when he did, he couldn't wipe the smile off his face.
The US muscle cars are a pain sometimes, but when they're hooked up in a race, the speed and the power is just ORSOM!
I still get sweaty palms when driving one!
I bought the Ford GT quite early on because I examined all the stats in the dealerships and it looked like the best bang for the buck. At first I hated it but after a while I really got to enjoy it and it's still one of my favorite cars for offline. It's very twitchy to handle, especially on technical courses like Fuji and Suzuka, but because of that it's all the more satisfying when you do manage to get it right. I also couldn't resist getting the GT Test Car just to try it out but once you've cleared the A races and can tune you can get pretty much the same performance out of the regular GT.
