apexing turns



For me apexing turns and costing down giant hills are the "fun" parts of FE.

*This may put you at risk on the road*

If I get the chance I will apex a turn on multi-lane roads by cutting over multiple lanes. I start the turn in the fast lane insted of the turning lane. Obviously this won't help mpg too much (because there are few safe oprotunities to do it), but every little bit helps.

I abuse then when i can all

I abuse then when i can all the time. I owe it all thanks to Gran Turismo 4 when trying to get gold on all the liscence tests. If I can't then I abuse it within my space as much as I can, and when no one is looking :O you can usually hear the tires screetch although I try

And yes like kick said, all coasting or FAS.

I do this too, especially on

I do this too, especially on windy on/off ramps at 55 mph, it's damn fun and I don't lose the momentum I would if I brakes to the speed limit (25 mph).

yea i do this all the time,

yea i do this all the time, it kinda comes naturally cus when you apex its the smoothest driving, therefore the most comfortable even when the car is nowhere near the limit. i never do it across multiple lanes though, sometimes i will throw in a single lane change.
