PostSubject: Help! Learning about Touge!   Wed Feb 13, 2013 8:38 pm

Hi! I just learned about Touge not too long ago Very Happy and I need some help learning rules, Restrictions and anything else. I'm a big Drifter but never really got into Touge until this weekend, so any help will be greatly appreciated thanks!

Well Touge itself has no real rules, Public lobbies just have class restrictions. The most common classes are B class and A class.

Competitions usually have specified rules, which is up to the competition host. Very Happy


If your looking for cars to start getting into Touge, preferablly go with a JDM car and make sure you focus on handling! Power isn't too important on the Downhill!

If ya have any more questions feel free to ask Very Happy

Also If ya need help Tuning, Head over to the Complete Tuning Guide! <-- Click there!

I'm sure some of the more experienced drivers can give you some help, but i'll give you crash course real quick.

Really the only "rule" we have is that front and rear aero is normally restricted in competitive touge. Of course there can be exceptions, but I don't think a single competition has allowed it up to this point. In public lobbies there are generally no rules besides common racing courtesy.

Most touge racing is done between classes B and A, so you should probably have a car for each. The most popular touge race is a B class run on the New Downhill, and your time on the leaderboard there is usually how others will measure your skill.

The only car that is universally looked down upon in B class is the Lotus Elise. Just take a look at the leaderboard and you'll see why.

Annd, that's all I can think of at the moment. Oh, and since you come from a drifting environment, I should warn you that drifting for speed won't get you very far in touge racing, it's a bit of a common mistake for beginners to have their heart set on drifting and thus they never improve. If you've got any other specific questions either myself or any of the other members would be glad to answer!

Are there any cars you would recommend to a noob like me? Very Happy
I'm thinking like a MR2 or a MX-5 of some sort. Something light and nimble.
Thanks for replies! I think I will enjoy Touge!

I'd definitely recommend the MR2, it's fun, fast, mid-engine, also a good learners car. As a rule of thumb, lighter is better, so the first generation MR2 fits in nicely.

I specialize in rotary engines, mainly RX-7's, so if you ever end up driving one of those I could help you out.

I agree with strawberry! I would suggest something MR or FF, that way its a more stable car as you learn the mountain more. Knowing the mountain can make you alot faster! Knowledge is key!

Id say the main thing with starting out is to not despise small beginnings, I've seen a lot of my friends stop racing the mountain cuz they don't understand that it takes some time to be proficient at it but just keep trying and youll see the limits of you and your car be raised to a higher level. And as everyone else has said, never be afraid to ask for help on anything!

I'm actually becoming more of an uphill driver the more I practice for my race with Kraze...

Ever since the Uphill Competition was announced, there has been alot more uphill runs and practice going down. Been tuning some myself recently. Very Happy

Most public lobbies focus on downhill, but lately people on the site have been doing more uphill..

Have cars for both!

In my experience, training with A class RWDs on the uphill is great way to learn throttle control, smooth driving, and the basic lines of Kaido. The downhill is mostly left to B class cars which emphasize the importance of not relying on power to gain speed but rather on corner entries and exits (basic driver technique). Hope this helps Wink

Right now I'm doing A class uphill, trying to relearn Kaido. Its a lot different racing up it, I'm usually drifting!

One more question, should I put on the Forza Bumper and Wing?
