Hi guys! ^^

I'm new in this forum, but i knew this server since two years ago.

(note: sorry for my english, i still make some errors... be patience ^^)
[anyway, i understand all whitout problems]
{oh... i've forgot... i'm from Sicily, Italy ^^}

I want to dedicate my first thread to the pratice in the racing.

I've seek the tutorial for the flying, and i've been whach some youtube videos from this clan.

...BUT...

...i'm still a Noob. :P

Anyway, i've learn more from this videos about the correct control of the ride in the curve/scikane.

Whit a lot of pratice i've been learned (maybe) the correct mode to take the curve/scikane... whitout using nos.

Actually i've lost some race beacuse i do not use the nos pickups when there are more curves/scikanes. You have any suggest for me to continue the "Learn to race"? ^^

I can't explain in correct form my anctual method... my english is too bad for that.

Anyway, i suggest to answer about the most used cars:
-banshee (fantastic car for scikanes... great sensibility at brake/handling... TOO MUCH sensibility... :P ...i haven't some question about this car, but if you want say more...)
-infernus (great in response after brake, but if come spinning... bye bye race... toooooooooo low to rotate)
-hotring racer (balanced in handling and brake sensibility, good accelleration after curves, but is like infernus after spinning)
-buffalo (OMG!!! what's wrong in this car? :P)
-bullette (ehm... in GTA-SA is rare to put that car to maximum speed... in MTA i totally can't control it in curves above 45° ...i've just telled you that i'm a noob? ^^)

Well, i haven't other question for today.

In waiting for response,
Docki.

p.s.
Thanks for patience. ^^

omg at last someone came out and said it instead of ramming every1 on the server, dying as a result and calling evry1 a noob :)

dude all i can say is that use the brakes a lot dont be scared too brake and go slowly round the corners. for now you can take corners slowly and mainly learn to brake, later you'll start understanding about race lines and optimum turning speeds etc.

about nos: try not to use this on corners as u will most certainly spin ;)


thats all for now

In the curves if you feel like your about to spin out, turn into the slide...

so, on a right hand bend, if your starting to lose it, turn left to correct yourself.

Ok guys, serius.

Thanks at ALL for helping. ;)

I actually make tryning about racing... some of my problems isn't for technics but for my character on driving.

When i'm solo there aren't some problems (except for nos, in particular races it's hard to use it).

I've some problems in traffic. At the start, for example, i usually brake and turn left from the group of started-cars.
When i have a car most speedly rear of me, i brake for permitting the overtake (is the correct term?).

This because i HATE traffic and i doesn't want to make problems to other players.

Right? ;)

Anyway, in my first topic i suggest a possibly path for helping: define the cars characteristics.

For example, the Buffalo is a great car on circuits, but is terrible on grass route (for example: wu-zi-mu and specular maps whit buffalo).

err.. that is not correct.
the buffalo is probably one of the best cars for grass.
Just try driving offroad with an infernus or a banshee and you'll see what i mean.

The best way to learn is by playing tbh.

Just 1 example: The infernus is the fastest car in the game, but it sucks at cornering. U can only drift your way trough corners. If u need to take a sharp turn, brake as much as u can.

And the buffalo isnt a good car for wu zi mu?? Its the perfect car for that track lol :lol:

...learning in progress...

Relax Rulez is the correct phylosophy (is write done? )

For first, thanks at all for the patience whit me during race. ^^

For second, i taked the "no-nos" discipline: use nos ONLY when you're TOTALLY SURE that wtf you doing. In other words, in high height ramps-race i didn't use nos (but i got pwned at each corner from other nos players).

Some of you know/look/talk_with me during the race, i'm here for listen anyone suggest.

A little note for "pwners": i only want to complete the race... 1st, 4th or 12th, isn't important for me. I play 4fun, not for take the first place in classific (my dream is taking the 5th place, but is toooooooo hard that ^^ ...i haven't the time for playing whit this rithm).

(don't believe me... i'm lolling a lot about that... :P)

Thanks for all and good playing guys. ^^

p.s.

Oh, i forgot....

Dear Mr HumanTraffic,

sometimes you pwn me, sometimes i pwn you,
i dunno if that is a tradition, a challenge or a simply unlucked coincidence,
simply, this is absurd! =D
