I don't have a hard drive for my 360, so that obviously gives me limits on the recommended practices, any help?

The closest thing you can get to racing a ghost would be to study the replays of other users online. Search for runs on YouTube and study them. Look for what kind of line they take and how they work the wheel and pedals. I know there are runs on the Street Version channel and I have some on my channel.

I went back and watched the replays to see what I did wrong. I then applied that to when I was racing. The ghosts that I raced were there to provide me with a solid line through the course and to give me something to chase. I then pushed the limits from there.

That's pretty much it!

If ghosts aren't an option, setup some checkpoints for yourself.
Honestly when I was chasing 32s and 31s, I probably had 25 points on the mountain where I checked my time to make sure I was on pace etc.

But don't restart if your behind by a second or so, you can always make up time and see where you can improve.

I only have like 1 checkpoint on the top section, which is the the exit of the last corner before the long straight. But then like 1 checkpoint every 5 or 6 corners.

I didn't set out to make them checkpoints, but many exits of corners I would glance up at the time, and just happen to start to note the time. Figured out the times among the many konalapping sessions lol

looking at your time for a certain section is the best way without having a ghost available for when you're practicing.

You can also change your hud setup to show you a split, like -0.223 seconds ahead of your previous best time,and it'll pop up several times during the run. seeing the green for faster and red for slower is a bit easier than processing the total time so far. I like to have that and no other hud information

Not quite as helpful as racing with a ghost since those you can see exactly how you're faster or slower than it, as well as comparing turning styles to see which is best for each corner. On the B class NDH i've seen how little the overall speed is affected by extra power/extremely low weights.

Less weight > more power

About 10 lbs of weight loss = 1 hp advantage
