what's your hardest corner?

Sun Jun 16, 2019 10:27 pm
I can't get the hang of the last corner in Market Square, I always either turn too early or drift too much. My eyes cross when I try to see the walls.
( And I'm still occasionally surprised that I've made the final shortcut corner in San Diego :D )

Citadel Cl(r)ash right turn leading to the ramp that takes you above the cave.
The last turn in Market Square is tricky because of the patterns and graphics, as you said eye crossing :-D
It can be done easily if you don't focus on the screen just memorize the turn!
Dubai still has one of the worst turns depending on the cars you use.
Worst part of the whole game for me is the dirty/muddy tunnel in Tenerife.

I'm with you on Market Square but the one I regularly lost time on was the final long bend in Asure Coast (Edit: Reverse). It's ok in one of the go-karts 'cos they stick to the road now but other fast cars lift if you don't hit the top of the hill just right and you end up going way wide.

In my early days I ran the AH in Dubai which was good back then for farming. It was fine for ages until I Max/Proed it then I wreaked half the time at the first 90° turn.

The first hard turn in Dubai toward the ramp gets me if I'm in a car I don't normally run there. I have muscle memory for the MP4-31 and I often wreck other cars if I don't play it safe and slow down drastically and start drifting early.

Market Square is easy-peasy for me because I've run it a billion times with my RX8SE.

Sector 8 Hitting the ramp after the curvy tunnel is tough.

Ipanema. Forward routes making a clean run on the sweeping right after the double-decker tunnel.

By far, the infamous Citadel Clash turn, just before the first ramp.

Paying real money for A8 and/or A9 is just the same as a trypophobic person buying iPhone 11.

I don’t like the one at the beginning of Mount Teide, especially when driving boats  ::)

Right hip and knee for me. Both from various old injuries and both getting replaced in a few months. GL own the local and it's taking me years to save up enough parts. ;)
