IB-3 has made me despise the FT-86

11 replies 380 views Edited Feb 9, 2013

I have no idea why this challenge has frustrated me so but I guess the white-boy in me just can't find the rhythm. Today I got a 18:576 and had to turn it off, I just couldn't stand to look at that yellow piece of @#@ sitting there revving it's engine any longer. O.K venting over and looking for some tips to beat this thing, never to drive a yellow FT-86 again.

Slaloms are usually tough tests because we don't normally run through them all that often.

Thanks for the link MasterGT, I have watched a few of them but just haven't been able to take what I see and make it happen on the test. There was some good advice in the comments of that one that may do the trick though.

If stuck, continue to throw repetitions at it. Smiley Tongue

 

Actually, if you take a break and come back to it later, what you learned earlier can be used better.

Yep, that's what it took...   And figuring out that the straight line is before the cone not along side it. In other words setting up for the weight transfer is more efficient than dealing with it after it happens. All 60 golds, one step closer to Platinum, hope GT6 doesn't drop to soon.Smiley LOL

Congrats m8! Yeah, that was one of the last tests I golded other than the S tests. It was a real pima...very frustrating lol. Those 2 cone slaloms are the only timed tests I never bothered to re-run to get a lower time. My gold times are : 19.784 on A-3 and 17.890 on IB-3. Has anybody managed to beat my times using AT? If so, I bet it wasn't by much lol.

Thanks MasterGt and Rojovo, it was a huge relief to finally get it. My time was 18.230 so not even close, I don't plan on going back either.

I could probably get 'em for 'ya with little to no trouble (except A-3 and IB-3) lol. I've run the license tests so many times that I'm to the point where I can gold them all within just a few attempts, yet I can't get close to my best times 'cause they kept fiddling with the tire physics lol. Nowadays, the tires seem to be grippier, yet I use the same settings/tactics every time.
