Question about drag racing

#1Lost FarmerPosted 5/18/2009 11:29:52 AM
I have both the Xbox and game cube version of this game. In the Xbox version when you are drag racing and get the line to green for a perfect shift, the indicatior goes down and you accelerate. Every time i do it in this version though i blow the engine and loose for no reason, if i hit a perfect shift it raises to am over shift. What do i have to do to prevent this from happening?

Shift. That's what keeps the engine from going into the red zone.

If that isn't your problem, then I have no clue what is, I've never once blown my engine in this game. There isn't any difference in the drag shifting methods since NFSU1 on the Gamecube, and it's identical to the Xbox version.

. . . . Oh, just thought, are you maybe hitting the downshift button by mistake?

i dont know

So check. This is possibly the easiest thing to figure out in the entire game. I can now almost guarantee that you're downshifting instead of upshifting, since you clearly don't even know which button shifts up and which button shifts down.
