Winning the Last NASCAR race

Sunday, January 23rd, 2011

There have been a few questions about how to win the last NASCAR race.

People complain of being bumped out of the race or pushed and shoved out of contention.

ThunderPigg seemed to have a good technique and method to get around this. Again its not exactly a ‘cheat’ but a smart and effective method to work around over zealous and pushy NASCAR drivers.

It goes a little something like this:

If you don’t want to get shoved out of the way by the guy behind you on the last lap, you gotta pay much attention to your rearview mirror. When you see the next guy is just about to hit you, move your car up or down as necessary to be sure the guy hits you in the middle of your back bumper. That way instead of spinning you out, the guy gives you a free speed boost.

I realize that bump drafting seems somewhat dirty to those of you that are more used to sportscar racing, but it’s part of the game in NASCAR superspeedway racing.

Interesting.. not sure if I would like to be bump drafted at 200+ kph surrounded by brick walls… but hey… each to their own!

Licence Cheat for GT5 – A-4 Licence

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

I was going through the license tasks the other day and was a little stuck on this one. It’s the A-4 task and I simply couldn’t get out of the &@%#$! corner quick enough.

Even though I run a site called GT5 cheats, I generally try to stick to the racing line and stuff… but love the occasional cheat, especially if it brings some quick cash or gets rid of an annoying level. This does the latter.

The trick is.. well.. simply cut the corners! There is no effort in the game to stop you cutting the corners so you can cut through them as much as you like and get a really good run out of the chicane.

Gold trophy? Give me a go at a Platinum!

I know the video quality is pretty average but you get the idea! 🙂

 

 

Epic 2 Million in 1 hr Easy Money GT5!

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

Wow… imagine.. 2 Million bucks for 1 hours work. And your job was to drive the Red Bull X1. This is the stuff dreams are made of.. or the stuff F1 drivers experience.. either way, it ain’t happening for me!

Back to reality (sort of), we are talking GT5 and a cool way to make about 2 million in about an hour. You will need a Red Bull X1… you can use another car of course but it will no doubt take a little longer. Here is goes:

the indy event in Like the Wind, if you use the X1 (any version) the race can be completed in ~2:45. that means the race can be run 23 or 24 times an hour. that includes pre and post race cut scenes. @ 23 times its 1.93 million credits an hour. @ 24 times its just over 2 million credits an hour.

if you are looking to grind for XP in a-spec I recommend the indy event in the dream car championship. in the X1 it takes ~5:20 to complete. you get 9819 XP per race. you can complete this between 10 and 11 times in an hour. so you can easily have between 98k and 108k in an hour.

Guess what? This is straight from our awesome Forum courtesy of henbone11. You can check out the full post and thread by clicking here.

Enjoy this method and share your thoughts.

Why you suck at Rally events!

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

Well yeah.. I guess you really suck when doing the rally events don’t you. You try hard, try to be smooth and can’t get anywhere near the target times, let alone that nut job of an AI!

I struggled too… my car kept bogging down.. the thing had no power and me Loeb would just drive away from me like I was.. umm.. a WRC competitor 🙂

Let me let you in on a little secret. Its not you.

Here is the problem: GT5 as a default sets you up with a traction control of 5 and ABS of 1. Ever wonder why your car bogs down on every corner! It’s because you traction control keeps kicking in and you can’t get moving!

Before you enter the race you need to turn the traction control to 0 (zero) and I prefer to turn ABS to zero as well. This not only allows me to get on the gas and have fast powerslides but also lets me do nice Scandinavian flicks with the ABS turned off.

Give it a go and watch your times drop! But remember you need to have more feel this way as the car will slide more but your speed out of corners will be worth it!

Enjoy.

 

Free Cars!

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

That’s right… you can get a car for FREE! As long as you have the money… huh?

Ok let me explain… this is straight out of the forum and was submitted by ‘i like f1‘ one of our forum regulars.

It goes a little something like this:

Similar cheat to duping, without the duping!
requires 2 accounts
Step 1: Save up for the car you want
Step 2: Back up your save to an external drive (flash drive)
Step 3: Buy the car
Step 4: Send the car to second account
Step 5: Reload main accounts save
Step 6: Send the car you bought back to the main account and enjoy the benefits!

Very very sneaky.. but hey it works.

The thing is you still need to save up the money.. but you don’t necessarily have to spend it.. you fake spend.

I wish life was like this don’t you. You save up a bit of cash, spend it, but it doesn’t ever leave your account. We can all dream, can’t we?

Anyway, give this a shot and let us know what you think.

GT5 Fast Money – 1 million in 1 hr!

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

That heading isn’t a mistake… you can make a million bucks in an hour with this GT5 fast money technique.

This technique is straight from the awesome Forum (now managed by GT5 star Stiggypoohs!) and was submitted by rockz63168.

So a big thanks to rockz63168 and hope you guys enjoyed this!

With the current XP & CR increase kindly offered to us from Polyphony, it’s possible to earn an easy 1,260,000cr per hour!

We are currently getting 84,000cr for a win on LIKE THE WIND races, so I’m basically hammering the SUPERSPEEDWAY – INDY in my everyday basic Japanese run-around……well, actually I’m running my 883bhp MAZDA 787b Stealth on an average 39 seconds per lap and generally winning each race by 13+ seconds! With loading times etc, each race takes around 4 minutes and nets you the 84,000cr & 3654xp too :D

Car setup (to make things easy for me!):

Mazda 787b Stealth
Stage 3 Turbo Kit
Titanium Racing Exhaust
Racing Soft tyres
-30 Front & Rear Ride Height
2.0 Front & 3.0 Rear Camber
60 LSD Acceleration Sensitivity
450 Max Speed Transmission
60 Front & 85 Rear Downforce
1 Traction Control
10 ABS
Off for Skid Recovery, Active Steering & ASM

Brilliant! You can read the full thread by clicking here and visiting the forum.

Another Take on the Fast Money Turbo Cheat

Monday, December 27th, 2010

We have seen this before with the GTR, but I thought I’d share with you another video I found. This time, however, it’s with the McLaren. Pretty sweet.

What car do you do this with?

 

3 Bonus GT5 Cars For Xmas!

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

The news is that Polyphony Digital and Sony Japan are planning on giving away 3 bonus cars on Xmas eve. The cars will be from the Chrome line which some may already have if they purchased the Special Edition of the game.

The cars include:

  1. Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640
  2. Jaguar XJ13; and a
  3. BMW M3 Coupe

There is a slight concern that since this was released by Sony Japan, it could be Japan specific which I doubt.

So on December 24, make your way to the Playstation store and download your cars for free!

UPDATE: My concerns above have been realised. It looks like this is a Japan only thing… Any players who got the Xmas download want to share? 🙂

 

GT5 Used Car Cheat – No More Waiting for Your Car!

Saturday, December 18th, 2010

This is an awesome cheat I found in our GT5 Cheat Forum. Again if you haven’t visited the forum then you must do so as there are so many cool cheats and GT5 loopholes to make your gaming experience so much better.

Okay, this cheat was sent through by Cocobwoy, a regular poster at the forum.

The aim of this cheat is to be able to access newly posted used cars quickly without having to complete a race.

In GT5 the used car list is updated with 6 new cars after every race you complete. However there is a way to have the used car list updated without even needing to complete a race! Brilliant!

All you have to do is simply go into any of the license challenges, regardless of whether you have completed the test or not. After the screen has loaded and your are given the option to ‘Start’ just exit (you don’t have to actually start the test) and the head back to the used car list.

Wammo! 6 new cars to choose from! Don’t like what there is to offer… just head back to the license test… exit.. and try again!

What’s that? A saving of 5 minutes to get some new used car options? Pretty awesome.

Wait! There’s more! Being that the used car list has a total of 30 cars… just do the license steps 5 times in a row before you return to the car list, then you’ll have a fresh list of used cars!

Thanks Cocobwoy!

Again, more cool stuff at the GT5 cheats forum.
