I have a question about Career mode and using Raceboy77’s and Worm’s tunes. It seems as though the awesome handling and braking does not always help me overcome the gimped speed in most career series races. I seem to do better with other tunes that keep the speed stat higher and balanced, even on Unbeatable difficulty setting.
With their tunes, I will blow by cars on corners only to get re-passed by them on straights on nearly every track in career mode against drivatars.
Am I doing something wrong when using their tunes? Or are their tunes not for career series? Are they more for hotlapping?
Those tunes should be good for all purposes. You need to learn how to drive them. Follow or find one of them on the rivals leaderboards and watch how they drive. Or in fact watch any of the top replays in rivals mode.
The way I look at the “tuned by worm” tunes is that the were created to make the cars easier to drive for new players, they are great for handling but as soon as you get on a straight it’s like you’re dragging an anchor. Search worms gamertag to find his proper tunes.
Thanks a lot I knew I wasn’t alone lol. What’s crazy is that to me it’s boring and takes the fun out of driving each car when it is tuned to be able to be driven in your sleep. Racing for me is about controlling the beast
But there is a tune for every goal, every track, etc. so I appreciate the insight and learned a lot from reading how Worm works on his tunes.
