Once the movie is mirrored here then the Title can change.

@OZ: Its not impossible, see those drag radial tyres? When you floor it they dig into the road which if you have enough horsepower, can send the front end up. Here is a video of a 80's RX7 on a drag strip getting the front tires off the ground: http://youtube.com/watch?v=X835besHZCw (Keep in mind too this little car dosn't have a super-beefy motor nor drag radials in the video.)
This also: http://youtube.com/watch?v=3fXuVFxmprs (Same Car different time)
EDIT: I stand corrected, its a RX3?

Anyway, after watching this video, I am truely in love. The mustang in the background was gorgeous!

even thou you are correct, you gotta agree that the way the rx-7 on the video does a wheelie if far too unreal compared with the real thing they wanna achieve. It's ok to see muscle cars doing such thing, but it's utter most rare to see the same affecting imports. Not to mention that after the landing, with such low front clearance, you would end up seeing nice sparks and broken bumpers flying all around.

Also, whats up with the BBS alike DRAG tires? damn... thats worse than i hoped... still like you said, the stang is looking nice and proper for the task

anyway, the mode sounds like fun, but still EA needs to look more onto reality instead of thinking that things like that can fly... Standing the crappy body kits is enough already :P

That is true... I wonder if the cars are scripted to act that way maybe? Like all cars of a certain "class" do that, because it appeared that both cars did reach the same height and I didn't see a wheelie bar...

You didnt, because clipping issues caused problems, so you dont see them.

- the cars wont ALL wheelie. only RWD..

OZ

OZ imagines a SLR doing a wheelie....

OZ then imagines pink elephants to forgets such imagination...

Hmmm I guess that does make sense...stupid clipping, I also know that FWD can't pop wheelies lol.

@OZ: LOL! After reading that the image came to my mind lol
@Sinister: So, seeing that you posted this topic, what is YOUR opinion on this game thus far?

Haha that would be scary (and sad) if the FWD cars did wheelies too.

Wow that video is cool though. Even though it is a little unreal. :\

True I was going to say something about that but you beat to me it. If they don't then I will have to sit and think where they went wrong lol...

nfslover.. my opinion, after having played it... read my review at www.nfsaddons.com and see for yourself.

Pro Street is better than the last 4 NFS. Hands down.. and the Drag mode, is my favorite mode, and will be defending the Drag King Title Online once Community RaceDays start to happen.

but more on the Racedays as it comes closer to the game release

crazy x3m - proper english grammar uses more lettering, I now have a headache after reading your post. From what i read, a 800 horsepower skyline with same wheels put you in hospital after crashing at 500mph which is unrealistic and a load of crap.

I think the wheelies are cool to be honest...

Sinister

it is.. you run into things when your chassis twists shifting with such torque.

Wheelies are the shit on muscle cars.

during the take off, does the cars suffer from unexpected steering, like pushing the front to a side or another?

Sinister

indeed it does., there were a couple people who wrecked seconds after launch.

Can A Rotory engine even get 800 hp? anyways the games looks great with the "intimidation/tire heating up". Is There Gonna Be Closed Circuit Drags?

yes they can... some drag prepped rotarys can go up to almost 1000hp, but then end up being like "Use in a race, buy another one next day" engines

1000 hp 1 use engines Sounds cool, but i meant like a rx-8 rotary, i heard its impossible to get anything more out of them, only a few more horses with the intake and exhaust.

All Drag Racing will be Closed Tracks, no worries of something jumping out at you., no other cars except the opponent, etc.

Great, now it completely defeats the purpose of challenging drag races.
Instead of trying to multi task in Most Wanted between traffic and gear
shifts, you will only need to focus on one aspect so the winner will obviously
have the better engine not the better racing skills.

Sinister
08-29-2007, 02:47 PM
exactly, and thats what we are looking for, the better engine setup.

@wingnut:
What if you have the best engine but shift like crap?
I don't think you're gonna win then.

Wingnut: Don't forget the red paint job as well :p

Seriously though, the U/U2/MW drags were more a case of playing through them and memorising the traffic pattern until you reached the end intact after 4-5 runs.

Wingnut
08-30-2007, 11:29 AM
Alright, if that's the case Im hoping the AI doesnt hold back
so drag racing becomes really competitive.
I hate races when you lead by insane amounts of distances.
Traffic helped prevent that because sometimes
you had to slow down and wait for traffic to pass. However if
the drag racing is as hyped as EA expects.
I hope the customization options follow so that any part could
alter the cars performance.

It would of been better if EA decided to replace drag racing with bracket racing:)
