At the beginning of a race (except for Endurance, Super License, and others without a countdown), do not rev your engine by holding (X). Instead, wait until the countdown reaches "1". By the time it says "Go", you will have no white smoke from your wheels, no wheelspin, and a boo...

Series awards (i.e., cars) are not purely random. Press (X) when a silhouetted car has the large black circle flashing under it to cause that car to be selected as the award for winning the series. Timing is crucial, since the large black circle only appears under a car for less than half a second. ...

Next to the current gear the car is in on the HUD, you will occasionally see a red and sometimes flashing number. This number is indicating what gear you should be in when you make the next turn. Sometimes this is overcompensated by how you have set the gear ratios or the condition of the tires at t...

From: theweirdguy

You can use other cars as "turning devices". As you know, you have to brake a lot on certain turns. If there is a car that is also turning directly next to you, put your car on the side of them and keep driving. If done correctly you will not have braked (except sometimes for timing), and ...

For any normal non-endurance race, select super soft race tires. They do not wear out on the track unless you see a tire meter on your screen. For endurance races, use the cheapest race tires. Though the screen says they have the least traction they will have enough after about two laps to keep you ...

From: eyegotgame

From: Piddlerooney

When you tune a MR (Mid Engine/RWD) car for absolute power, the rear tires heat up very quickly. Put a less expensive tread on the rear tires (for example, medium on the rear and super-soft on the front) for better grip and control, and less tire wear in a long race....
