PostSubject: Making the clean pass!!!   Wed May 15, 2013 12:01 pm

I have been running into this more and more as my times have dropped. Why does it seem that people just cant make a clean pass on the mountain. I personally try to wait for a big mistake or out braking the other car. In true life club racing the car in front has the right of way in the corner you have to watch his line.

Most of us here do pass as clean as possible and if we do make contact then its a mistake. I always waut for the opponent to either make a mistake or leave a gap enough for me to fit. Thats when I make my move

The mountain is two lanes wide for the most part and it's not like people can wait for a second lap to pass. It's do or die and people get desperate sometimes. I don't drive dirty but I'm certainly not afraid of some contact, it's part of racing, adds to the mental pressure.

If I don't pass Cleanly I let them have their spot back cause if its not clean it's not a pass, add me on Xbox and we can run some clean pass lines I'll show you a bit of my technique and you can take what you can from it!!!

Gamer tag is Clutch927

Don't get me wrong I love a bit of contact cause it lets me know your still back there it's just of those things drivers have to comfortable with a little contact

I can deal with contact. It is going for passes in places where you know both cars are not going to make it through. Plus nothing looks better on the mountain in a replay than a clean planned pass.

I just try to bait people into over driving a corner by staying on their tail nice and close.

I usually dont pass until i can go by clean. Somtimes the driver up front acts unexpected leaving you no room to avoid so a crash is inevitable

I dont even make contact on purpose not even a little

Exception are opponents that really bump my car intentionally i clean them up on every chance i get with no bad conscience whatsoever

@swan i get what you mean there. I hate it when people try to squeeze through in places where its simply not possible without makin the opponent crash or even spin

Some contact is unavoidable but I do understand what you mean.

Like swam you said you follow closely on the lead car, I can remember soooo many times where I was following closely where the lead car brakes early which causes me to bump them

Or on the flip side of someone diving in, Getting on the inside of somebody cleanly, then they close in on you and pinch between the walls



So overall a learned skill that is very important is car awareness!

Yeah you need to be able to know where a car is around you without seeing it

What ive learned a car within 20ft range is in the "blind spot"

I will admit that my 914/6 is hard to hear at times since it has only sport exhaust on it vs. most people using race. When i watch replays i cant even hear the car over all the other screamers haha.

I agree with that. It's so quiet even at full revs.

Half the reason why people cant do a clean pass is based on their level of skill.
They may see the open space for a line but they dont have the ability to execute.
At that point, the chaser will most likely overspeed in to the corner and understeer into the opposing car.
A lot of the noobs dont even yield to the car thats ahead, they just drive like theyre the only ones on the mountain, cough* cough* bandoracer9* cough* cough* and that their line is the "best and the fastest" LOL

Most noobs only care about what they see right in front of them are unaware of the corners lying ahead, thus instinctively going for the line and putting both cars in a difficult situation.
Thats why we label some sections no passing zones

The ability to manipulate your line(braking/throttle/weight shift/etc) from any given point on the track is what separates the pros and amateurs.

A clean pass is probably one of the most satisfying things about the touge. Like Clutch927, if I try passing someone and throw them off their line with contact, then I will pull off to the side and let them regain their position.

It's all about being courteous and patient. Just wait for the right moment to pass. And if you can't, don't force your self. You'll get them next time.
