I spend hours on a track tuning a car for drifting, getting to know all of its quirks and characteristics, but when i take it on the same track Ive spent hours practicing on, suddenly the grip and handling characteristics feel completely alien.
Are the physics in online drift lobby’s actually different from career mode and test drive tracks, or am i just caving in to pressure? lol.
Second question, what is the difference between total time and best lap? If i run a 1 lap race, the total time is 5 seconds or so longer than my best (only) lap. What is the total time actually timing?
Third, how do i actually tune a car for drag racing? In the drag strip test track, the timer starts before i can even rev the engine. This makes the drag strip testing almost pointless. When i used to play gran turismo, the timer started after launch, counted 0-60 times and g-force generated. Is there anyway to test my tunes before going to an online lobby?
I appreciate any answers guys, thanks in advance!
