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.
