Most of the racing crews won't be using ghost mode. I won't for sure when I host I turn off all the crutches.
Oh the "clean racer" BS again.....
Rubbin is racin kids, but it looks like R* has listened to all your crying and will be giving you a no contact option. Now you can run your time trials and trade wins with your so called "Racing Crews"
I also notice one thing, not aimed specifically at this thread but players in general, it is almost always someone with a very low race record that starts bitching about clean racing. Once you get the required wins for the unlocks there really is no need to win anymore and for the most part people stop worrying about it so much. I know for me it almost doesnt matter anymore. I hold to my standards and represent my crew at all times. I just laugh off whatever happens in a race because it often is just fun.
Last night I got completely wiped out of first half way through the race and ended up back of the pack. I cleanly wove my way through the field back to second and the guy that wiped me was in first. When I came up to pass him in the last turn I guess he tried to block and I caught his tail spinning him around.
I immediately got on the mic and said "sorry man", parked in the middle of the street, tapped my horn twice and let him retake the lead. I ended up with third as another was able to take advantage.
We did a couple more races in the same group and this person never slammed me off the road again.
Why, you say? That's just the way Red Rum Racing rolls and I always represent.If you get in a room with a bunch of RRR1 tags...don't fear...you will be treated the same as crew...race clean and you will enjoy yourself...race dirty and you will get the boot.
Had a couple of bad experiences in races where most of the others were in a crew - they just take turns slip streaming each other, giving them a massive advantage, that those not in the clique can't get in on and get left in their dust...
Just join one of the race crews. Lots of very good racers who race fair. The races are much more fun - often with 3 or 4 people finishing within a few seconds.
Plus racing crew tend to make loads of great tracks for real racing and not just 10 jumps in a straight line that you can drive around the side of anyway.
They're not ALL like that, but it is very common to see - to the point where if I enter a room and there's 3 or more from the same crew, I don't stick around for more than that 1 race.
Agree mostly - but if someone tries to pull of a blocking move, and mistimes it and ends up spinning... that's tough luck for them, but no reason to hand them a place back as a "reward" for their poor attempt at defensive driving.
Holding a lead in a race, particularly with the mechanics that R* have in this game, is quite a tough gig - if someone manages to hold off the cars behind, without spinning or being spun, then they deserve the win, IMHO.
If someone makes contact with me, whether it's them doing it intentionally, or a blocking move gone wrong, and they end up coming off worst... better luck next time pal, but I'm not gonna give up my freshly earned place for them, when I've just been racing my own race and keeping my nose clean.
