Re: Anyone get a gold in B-5 license?

Nov 25, 2010

I got it by 18.823. Took my about 20 tries even though I knew the corner quite well..

 

You have to turn sharp into the apex just as the green patch on the outside lane will disappear from view. Then at the apex(center at the inside of the corner) you should've braked to about 45 km/h - 27 mph, just for a moment (half a second) keep the feet of both pedals to turn sharper and floor it to the finish.

What is the basic secret to getting Gold in the license tests? I'm not anywhere near a top driver but many of my runs seem to be fairly flawless and I'm not even hitting Silver. I'm using Automatic Transmission and I suspect that in addition to just doing everything perfect, you need to be Manual. I'm a complete noob to this whole game so I haven't yet stretched my wings to try Manual. I'm just trying to stay on the track!

You don't need to use manual to get it.  I use the auto and my 1st 4 licenses are all gold right now.  2 more to go.....

As far as the basic secret.....there isn't one.  You just need to find the fastest line through the corners best braking spots etc.  Sometimes if I'm stumped I'll look at the demo run to see if the person setting the goal time is doing anything different than me, so I guess check that out.

Keep trying, play around with your braking point and where you accelerate out the apex.  I have all gold in A & B, yet to try the others.  Gets kind of lonely with no cars on the track.
