View Full Version : Off the line...
06-07-2007, 05:43 PM
So I have an Acura that I absolutely love on this game and it would be an incredible car if I could figure out how to get my car off the starting line a hell of a lot faster... I'm trying to keep it in the S series cars so nothing extreme... but does anyone have any general tips to help me get that extra boost off the line?
Sorry, that Its taken a while to reply, but I havent seen this thread yet...
Well, start off by buying transmission and 3rd Class weight reduction, if it puts your rank higher than it should be than take off the needless engine parts. Also try buying things like rims and Driveshafts to make your car weigh less. You also want to buy a 3rd grade Clutch because it can help your shift time by up to .20 seconds.
*Remember, you can add a lot of the "Green" parts without boosting your rank at all, try buying as many as your can.
Now test your car again to see if you like it better.
If its still slow (Or you had those parts) than try to tune your car.
Chose your car and go to "Tune Car" from the main Career menu. Go to "Gear Ratios" and slide the main one at the top slightly over to the acceleration side, along with the first 3 yourself. It should make you accelerate faster, but lose a little of your top speed.

What Maka said, but be careful tuning the Gear ratios, as tuning them wrong will result in your engine over revving at the line and at every gear. But if that happens at least you'll know you are at the engine's limits and just put it a bit lower then before and you'll be good.
Remove external engine parts to make room for core engine parts(turbo, cams and valves, etc)
Better tire compounds and proper PSI tuning allow for better grip and in turn, better acceleration of the line. There is alot more you can do, but these are the basics.

Thanks for the reply... I took some of your advice and it seems to have improved things for me quite a bit although I think the overall power of the Integra was what wasnt cutting it for me. I havent had time to sit down and mess with the gear ratios yet but I will probably do that tomorrow and test it out in some freeruns. Thanks again.
