Is there a way to do this? Manually shifting with a gamepad or handheld is something I generally can't stand and my hands start to cramp having to use the shoulder buttons of the DS.
Generally only manually shift when using a wheel with some proper form of shifting available (Inline, paddles, or H pattern).
If not, I guess I'll call it a day since I finished the world tour and the simulation challenges. At least I gleened some fun from this finally. Bought this and several other Firebrand developed racers years ago (Grid and Ferrari Challenge) and never got into them until playing through them one by one in recent weeks.
Might go out and buy a few more now actually like Dirt 2.
