How can I improve better than perfect start and shifts?
In multiplayer mode I usually use SLR McLaren fully upgraded (636). With engine pro tuner hired, perfect start and perfect shifts I get down to about 9.105 sec at best the on 1/4 mile. Some opponents with engine pro tuner icon only - no N2O maniac nor tire crew hired - get down to about 9,070 or even 9,040 i saw once. How can they be faster 0.35 or even 0.75 seconds faster than my car with perfect start/shifts and same tuning ? According to the sounds I hear that they use nitro at the same time as I do, right after 2nd gear shift.

I'm not sure if this will be of any help but I use the (PRO)McLaren GTR F1(642), and noticed a very similar trend, I would be getting perfect starts & shifts but still be getting whooped by cars of lesser power. What I did was mess with the nos timing, like try using nos right at the start or right after the first shift. And also sometimes I would get faster times on combinations of late shifts/good shifts. Sometimes being perfect all the time doesn't seem to result in the best time. It took me a awhile of trying a LOT of different combinations but I finally seem to have it down with the GTRF1. I think if you do the same and tinker with it in single player mode you should find results. Cheers hope this was helpful. G'Luck!

Right, the correct NOS timing seems to be crucial on the GTR F1. But on the SLR McLaren it must be something else i did not figure out yet. I sometimes purposely do not trigger NOS to hear when my faster opponent does. They usually trigger NOS around the 2nd gear shift. But at this point they already have an advantage of half a car length or so. Must be something at the start, but not (only) the "perfect start". Maybe it's just a difference in power of the same car between devices / software versions and I'll never reach these times?

Nope, as far as i know the same car is equal among devices and software versions. But you are close. It always depends on start, gear shift point, nos timing, and of course upgrades. Now that you know it does not depend on nos nor upgrades, tinker around with the other options

Honestly, i've been spending a lot of time tinkering with my McLaren GTR F-1's shift points. Like for example for me I have found in multiplayer[With all 4 of the ups] that I can get a sub 8.6 time, like 8.585 all the way down to the 8.580. Right after the initial perfect start, I immediately hit Nos. But instead of getting a perfect shift into 1st gear I let it over-rev and let it go down to almost red line[whcih is considered a 'Late shift'] then in 2nd gear instead of aiming for a perfect. i let it go an extra 500rpm or so and get a 'good shift' and on the last gear switch[3rd->4th] i do the same thing not aiming for a perfect I am for a second after perfect for a 'good shift' most of the times I employ this method. I get times that shit on other F1GTR's that also use the full 4 ups. are you consistently going for that 'perfect gear change' every gear? Maybe try tinkering with it instead of always trying to get a perfect shift maybe settle for a late good shifts and practice Nos'ing at different times. I would switch to the F1GTR because I don't mean to sound cocky but unless i'm going against really high t5 pro cars i usually smoke everyone in the t4pro car category. But again these are just work for me and my car could be different. Btw do you have any t5pro cars? I've gone about 5-6 hour long sessions without so much as ONE new car piece

Does anybody play the race for cash in creative drag racing,if you do you would be running a 1/2 mile in 14.429----to 14.491 if you want to win money I can run a 14.472and that's with a iPad other that beat me run 14.429 I know we are only talking about 43 100th of a second ,but if you play that are a lot you know that hard to get when you are shifting and even harder tuning which you can't,does anybody have any shift tricks for the lower times I have mentioned

For many higher tier cars, nitrous right at the start along with a double or triple quick shift can be very useful. You can even hold down the nitrous button before the start and it will kick in right away. I've had many times in the 7.1's with the tier 5 BMW and venom using this technique with full team.
