This sounds like it might be helpful advice, but no offense meant when I say that it's incoherent. Could you parse it into clear sentences? Again, I'm not trying to be snotty; I really want to be able to understand what you're trying to tell us.

Okay, here is a bona fide helpful hint for the Lap & Crap, or whatever it's called. You know, the one where it takes an act of the gods to get 100%.

 

During your last stretch, be sure you run slightly outside of the centre of the lane. How you do that final turn will count for tenths of a second, and we know that tenths of a second are everything in this. The reason to run slightly outside of centre is so that when you do that last turn, not only do you have less chance to fishtail into a cone, but you need not fully straighten out the turn--just do about a 150 rather than a 180, to cross the line.

 

You still will need the tightest possible turn, as for all the turns in the test, and you will still need to avoid skidding about in stretches throughout the test, but remember that you don't care where the car's aimed once you get it over the very last line, so a 150 degree turn will suffice. It will conserve more of your speed in a race that's all about conservation of speed. If you have been getting 98% and 99% but are looking for that last 2/10 of a second, this may be what puts you over.

 

My hat's off to everyone in the forum who has helped build up the body of knowledge about this one. I hope this is a useful item (if someone's already mentioned it, then oh well).

No hesitation here about sharing the credit with yours--the people that write the GF stuff all deserve a big shoutout from gamers, and I definitely referred to it. I'm hoping my tip I sent makes it into the next version.

Good job, The difference is that 1) I put less time into mine (WAY WAY LESS) 2) this was up before gamefaqs had one (I checked just to make sure I wasn't killing a FAQ) and 3) Allows for discussion on the forums.

 

Your faq does indeed add some things here or there, but to say its better isn't right at all. Its almost the same quality as mine, it isn't any longer (just has a LOT more spaces in between lines) a few more tips here or there, a few less in other places, and a little Q&A at the bottom, but nothing that all the tips people have posted in this thread don't make up for.

 

I appreciate what you have made, but please keep the self-credit comments to yourself, being as in your credits, you had 2 other people do entire sections for you. But none the less, keep up the good work.

I can't even get past the first course in Pilot School. I always collect the three circles and another one appears behind me or something and I don't know how to even turn the plane around. I hate these schools man.

City Slickin'. I found this way a heap easier.

Just go across the grass on the corner after the first intersection near the car school. Drop down onto the train tracks, and drive ahead aproximately where the red line on the map goes, you'll have to drive to the right of a factory wall down a grassy slope, then through the gap in the fence onto the road. From there, smooth sailin to the marker, speed id up to you, I recommend absolutley caining it. You should reach the marker in under 50 fairly easy. Take the same route back, except you can't go up the grassy wall on your way back, gaps to small, so take the GREEN bit of the race line as drawn. So keep going, then slow down, take a right at a fence gap further down the road, and weave through the back of the building up onto the train lines, then left onto the road which leads west up to the car school.

 

You honestly are left with more time to take bits easy, because of the time gained due to the massive straight line speed and path used.

 

I can elaborate, I'm sure, If people have issues.

Jesus Christ.. I've done all the schools on gold, and have one thing left. That one thing? Flying Fish.

 

I don't have a f*cking clue how to do this.. I really don't. I.. I don't bloody know! I can get more than 65m once in every few tries, but I don't get gold. I've finished with 65m with a second to go, and with 20 seconds showing on the screen, but nothing.

 

It's cracking me up. Could someone who has done this please try to give a good explanation? confused.gif

I think the gist of what he's saying is:

 

-When you start off and it tells you to press X to begin, instead press start (taking you to the map).

 

-press triangle to exit and go back to the game, IMMEDIATELY pressing X to begin, and you should get a ~2 second head start before the clock starts.

 

I didn't test this myself or anything, I think that's just what he's trying to say.

For the city slickin' one on driving school, I found going to the train tracks an easy way to get there. As soon as the first opening at the tunnel appears (I mean when you are inthe tunnel), turn sharp left, and then hopefully your car will not go insane(you'll know what I mean when you do it, hopefully).

 

Edit: oops, sorry this has been posted before. smile.gif

You need at least a bronze medal on every test to get 100% game completion.

I just want gold for the Flying school so I can get the Hunter to spawn.

 

I think I'm actually going to intentionally keep my bronze in driving school, because I like the Super GT, don't really care for the Hotknife, and the Bullet, while awesome, spawns like two blocks from the school, so there's no point.

Because it's fun to achieve something. Plus, there is a real, practical benefit--at least, for me there was in driving school. It forced me to study the fine minutiae of turning, braking and such, and how to creatively combine the aspects of driving. I'm a better driver now, not just because I got 100% on all the tests but because of all the attempts where I failed, and what I had to learn to do to succeed.

Wow, Nice to see I'm not the only one on the verge of a breakdown due to Burn & lap. I've tried this test at least 100 times and I've only managed 82% as my best score. suicidal.gif

It's horribly difficult, demanding a near-perfect controlled fishtail nine straight times. On the tenth, you don't have to hang a full 180; if you hug the outside on the way in, you can finish with a shallower turn (about 150 degrees) because the race will end before your car hits the outside cones.

 

When you find yourself scoring 96s, 97s and 99s, and can't break the plane of this particular goal line, that move will buy you gold.
