I finished the “Career mode” and the “Challenge mode“. So I wanted to try out the “Quick race mode” where you were allowed to customise races. What it meant was that you could pick the difficulty level for each race, the number of opponents, the track, traffic level…etc.
What’s this post about ? Well I consider myself a fairly decent NFS racer. (I have made it to the finals of three gaming finals in symposia, but never won any. The three being Valiammai EEE-06, SRM IT-Cressida-07, Hindustan CSE-07.) I also qualified for the finals in KCG ECE/EEE-07 (it was held on the same day, so I do not recollect which one), and in fact I even had the best timing in the prelims. But mysteriously I was never called for the finals. (What we normally call fixing an event!!). Well there are obviously guys out there who are pro’s and better than me. But all said and done, I am not bad at all. So I decided I’d put up my timings on some of the tracks (In Sprint mode) so that people can evaluate themselves and I can evaluate myself if they found it rather easy to beat my timings. Your personel timings are welcome in the comments section.
Some additional details you might want to know are:
I used the following settings:
No. of Opponents: 3
Catch Up: On
I used my customised Porsche Cayman S and used Automatic Transmission. (I have somehow never gotten around to using the manual transmission.) The Cayman S is somehow my favourite car in this game. The Carrera GT has a better acceleration, but its too whiny. The BMW is alright.
So, here are the timings I managed in the first 5 tracks:
1. Seaside & Power Station
Best Time: 1:32.77
* – The timing shown here in the pic is before I drove the race and I am not so silly as to claim false timins, so do not comment on the same.
2. NFS World Loop
Best Time: 0:00.00
* – This track is too long. So, I didn’t drive it. Maybe later I will and update my timings.
3-Diamond & Union
Best Time: 1:24.07
4-Hwy 99 & State
Best Time: 1:50.80
5-Clubhouse & Hollis
Best Time: 1:44.44
I shall post the timings of the other tracks in subsequent posts. Happy gaming and do let me know if you beat my timing. It must mean I should try better.
