Does anyone know how I can finally beat an MFO time?

Oh...

I can't even beat any of my times at my favorite courses!\

Could it be the machines I'm using?

(I don't like using the WR machines, but I love Blue Falcon, Elegance Liberty, Dragon Bird, and Wonder Wasp)

 Well Night Thunder, Blodd Hawk and Golden Fox are the best, along side with Twin norrita, and some gay shortcuts with deepclaw

Old and tired... ;p

if you don't like using the WR machines, you won't get very far..

 Disagree, sure he can't beat wrs, but I bet he surely could make it into top 20 with ease ;)

This is gonna be tricky. If you see my times , you'd probably think that I can do better. (And I'll try) Ever since last week, I've been playing GP Legend like crazy. I did Time Attack numerous times (mainly by using the pretty fast A-Level Boost Machines like red gazelle and using WR 3% of the time.) So far, I've only gotten better times when I use Wonder Wasp, Sonic Phantom, Red Gazelle, and Mighty Typhoon, and I don't get any improvements with the WR machines, though Twin Norita got 2nd best in Red canyon I. I don't know why, but I think I may never place top 20.

go to MV Section,Articles,Terminology

If you use Twin Noritta, and that you boost, and that you can make Strafing, Blast turn, Sharp turn ,eventually a little Drift Turn, i just can't see how you can't beat you're time, but i think that you don't know these techniques

By the way exept JDT and Rival Bump, All these technique work in GPL

 

If you have some questions like "Where use the boost"  RichardTaro have a page with a video for each Track (total time) and for each Zero Test that you can find in GPL, i don't remember the link,so ask to him

I know nothing of those techniques. I'm more of a casual racer (meaning I always go to 90% settings)

I've read up on those, but I still can't execute them.  And BTW, I've finally started to beat my times...by only 2-5 second margins. Rarely 0'00'01".

that's why you should play more and try one at a time. this stuff takes time to master.

Ok. Recently I've been trying to perfect my drifting, but I'm still slowing down and hitting walls. I used the machines you prescribed, but they're no help, so I'm going to stick with my favorite machines.

i didn't get far that way. Twin Noritta is the best machine if you still can't drift properly. you can reach top 20 with it alone.

Are you sure there's no other way to end up on the top 20? (Yesterday, I set some new records without the WR Machines).

outside knowing drifting, doing a lot of big shortcuts and using machines like TN if you can't drift? no, there's no other way to reach top 20.

you can learn drifting and use drift machines like night thunder, blood hawk and golden fox to get further and reach top 10.

that's the way this game works.

 drifting shouldn't be hard to learn... it's like as hard to beat Mario 1 for nes ;D

i can think of many games that are easier to beat than that one. world 8 isn't very kind.

Agreed, but that's a different topic. However, a few days back, my thumb (which I use blast turns on is getting lazy which happens when I use Night Thunder or WR Machines) By the way, it sucks that there are only a few good machines. Did they make the other machines inferior on purpose? (Maybe not Elegance Liberty, because I get great speeds off of dash plates.

Games without random factor are all easy ;) or is mario 1 somewhat random? :S gotta dust of my nes and try it out ;D

 

Ofcourse they made ships that are better, and worse. it's circle of f-zero ;)
