Hi guys. I've been playing for a few years now, and am confused / struggling with a few things......

1) Whenever I race, I always seem to be slower at the start than everybody else. I have the accelerate button pressed during the countdown. 

2) Is there any tuts / guides online for the best lines to take on loops and wallrides. I tend to stay as low as possible on wallrides, and as straight and close to the centre of a loop (not the track).

3) How do I stop drifting when going fast. I always lose speed on long fast corners and the car starts sliding, and I normally release to try and stop the drift.

Hope this makes sense.

Cheers !

The start is just a trick when the next block after the start is a boost, you just exit the platform a lil before so the angle gives u faster "grip".

About avoiding slides over 600 km/h is only avaiable with Gamepad, cause it allows you to turn that sightly that the car does not lose any grip and slide. Aside that, that doesnt means you cant hold any pad times, just try to learn to release gas at start or middle of a turn so you can get max speed at end of it.

Im sorry about my english
Greetings Yeeahz.

Hey, first of all I would advise you to hop on DnA server occasionally and play with team members or you can even join my homemade server if it's running, here is the link: maniaplanet://#addfavorite=longserver

To answer your questions:

1. First thing you want to make sure you do in the starts is to take them really tight, find the shortest route, avoid bumps and air time because at low speeds mistakes cost you more time. Check this video for few start tricks [url=https://www.youtube.com/w ... /watch?v=P7TxJKHHv_A

First 2 are pretty common in the SpeedFun maps. 3rd not so much.

2. Watch this video for the loops and the walls :  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zB_xMv-CGO0
also check this one:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5SYEkKvVko

3. If you want to STOP drifting you have to stop steering or do a counter steer to get out of the drift.

If you want to avoid getting into a drift in the first place you have to first find out if its even possible to do the turn without drifting, if you have too much speed and the turn is too sharp you will have to release the acceleration a bit but if it is possible to do it FS you have to steer lighter, don't turn all the way, find the sweetspot where you steer enough to make the corner but avoid getting into a drift. That is if you are playing on the gamepad but if you are keyboard player it's still possible to avoid the drift (in most cases) but it's harder because you have to tap the turn button in appropriate pace for that corner.

I've only seen you play on SF 90k rounds server and even though playing rounds is a good practice to get more consistent, I think that you should spend more time on one map, hunt it, learn it, find out where are you making mistakes and improve.
