    Default Driving in Hardcore Mode - FAQ

    I have seen many people on TDUC now having difficulty driving/drifting in HCM (Hardcore Mode)

    So i decided to do a dedicated FAQ about it

    Post all your questions here and i will answer them ASAP for you

    Thanks

    Q. How do you not drive into trees? To word it properly, how do you go fast around corners?

    A. Know the car and corner, gently turn in and dont give too much throttle too soon, also make sure you are in the correct gear and have stopped braking before turning, if you need to adjust midcorner for any reason make sure you dont unsettle the car too much.

    Q. How do you drift around gentle bends? Also which would be more suited Low revs or highier?

    A. Depends on the car, either use a higher gear and lower revs or a lower gear and higher revs. low revs would be more suited because you can gun it on the exit to the turn without fearing overrevving.

    Q. Is it better to use a high gear or low gear while drifting?

    A. Depends on the corner, if its a long sweeper then a higher gear would be more suited to allow the extension all the way round, whereas a lower gear would make you hit the redline and more than often end the drift. On the flipside if its a tight hairpin its a lower gear and higher revs to keep the wheels spinning.

    Q. Does the Hardcore mode work better with the MS Wheel than the standard mode?

    A. I cannot personally comment on this, but from what i have been told the wheel is much better in HardCore Mode

    With Hardcore mode it is fairly easy to keep in the one lane, want to learn what a cars limits are? Practice driving fast but keeping in the one lane, this way you learn the speeds the car can carry, the gears that work best and the way in which the car handles. This is advice I usually give to people who have trouble staying on the road and so far it seems to be working.
    I'm a bit mental.

    Wow, nice one Nipper.
    My Question is kinda similar to 430's.
    Is it better to use a high gear or low gear while drifting?

    I don't know if this has been said. But its alot easier in Hardcore Mode if you use manual. Especially for the usual Automatic drivers.

    any suggestions for cars to learn to drive in HCM well? (i ton't think that makes grammatical sense...) I learned how to drive good out of HCM in a noble m14, buit the powerband is way too jumpy for me in HCM.. it'll start spinning in 3rd gear.

    I've been trying the TVR chim, and i hear the Gallardo is good, just bought one today but didnt really try it. Any suggestions?
