ASSOLUTO (Italy)

Highest Maximum Speed.
When you're ready to experience some real speed, then it's time to purchase
an Assoluto-made sports car. Blow away your competition on the oval track
with one of these speed demons.

Mythical Coast: 2.88 miles

The track runs along the coast, past Mediterranean style villas and a
chapel. A standard concourse with some hills. Standard Performance cars
like the Gnade are recommended.

Over Pass City: 4.13 miles

The longest circuit is also the most spectacular. Just like the City of San
Francisco, the city with a lot of hills. Cars with high acceleration are
recommended for this track.

Lakeside Gate: 3.88 miles

This road has some beautiful scenery to admire. One of the attractions is
where the route opens up by a lake, which reflects the surronding scenery.
But the main attraction is its very tricky and challenging turns. Beware of
the cars that fly through this trach at high speed. Cars with good handling
are recommended for this track.

The Extreme Oval: 1.9 miles

This track consists of two very long straight-aways that are connected by
two giant turns. Don't even try to win races here until you buy one of the
Assoluto cars.

This section is an introduction to the basic techniques of Rage Racer.
Playing Rage Racer without learning the basic techniques is possible.
However, to set new records and truly savor evety aspect of Rage Racer, it
is recommended that you master some of these powerful driving techniques.

Drifting

This is a technique used to slide gracefully through tight corners.
Although drifting is actually slower than Grip Driving, there are many
sharp turns where drifting allows the smoothest cornering. There are two
types of drifting:

Acceleration Drifting:

As you approach the corner, release the accelerator. After you start to
turn, begin accelerating. As you begin to drift, steer your car towards the
opposite side of the corner's direction. Finally, when the body of your car
becomes aligned with the road again, straighten and accelerate.

Brake Drifting:

As you approach the corner, trun before entering the corner. Press the
brake button once. (Do not press the acceleration button at the same time).
Accelerate again to drift. Apply this technique at low speeds.

Grip Driving:

Take turns without drifting. Just use your brake. As you get close to a
turn, brake and accelerate at the same time. Then let the brake go slowly
as you exit finish the turn. Grip Driving is easier than drifting when it
comes to taking turns. Eventually you will learn which techniques to use on
each turn. Don't try to do unnecessary drifting in turns.

Shifting Gears:

For smooth acceleration, it is necessary to keep the engine running fairly
fast. Try to shift gears often, checking the RPM meter and the sound of the
engine. Right before drifting, shift down to the right gear for smooth
acceleration. Manual cars have less power loss and should run faster than
automatic cars. If you want to break records, you've got to try manual
cars. Shift down to a lower gear when you drive up hills, or when the RPM
meter goes down after drifting, and when you slow down by hitting other
cars. Shift up when the RPM meter reaches the end of the red zone.
