Actually just be alert on certain milage when your opponents might slow or catch up....

Then again I'm kinda used to story mode... the first loops are forgiving unless next few loops when AI are more aggressive and starts bumping/tossing traffic cars

I know what you're talking about. Thanks for the heads up.

until you get your WMMT5 ready, I'll tell you what stages that you need to "git gud" as not to get trolled by the AI

At least it needs at least 60 stages to finish a loop...

BMW M6 topic:
as I let someone I know or I usually meet at my usual playspot and wanted to try my FT'd M6

His comments are:
- somewhat slippery yet it does grips on occasion

he tried Hakone and Osaka TA and he was quite addicted to this car

Really? Thanks!
Yeah, the story is shorter in the "new" game. 60 as opposed to 80 in Wangan Maxi 2 and 3. If I start from a discard, it's half the length of the aforementioned games which is cute.

from discard you'll be saving 1/3 of the total loop from the start (which is 20 stages), unlike in WMMT3 which is 80 stages while 3DX/3DX+ is 100 stages which shortened by 40% from 3DX/3DX+

@BMW topic....
contemplating that my M6 should be doing DU after the bingo event =/

100 stories is a lot. Never had 3DX+ where I live. But yeah, discards are cool.
Can't wait to drive the M1. I'll have it with a nice Orange colour, with fries and a drink!

I use an M1 almost every time I play. The handling can throw you off at first because the rear swings out more upon entering corners; fortunately, it gets more tolerable near the exit. I find it more fun to use than an FD, esp. for those 830 HP battles.

I'm currently at 12'06"085 with it on Metro Tokyo compared to 12'06"511 with FD, and 9'10"533 (M1) vs 9'10"793 (FD) on Metro Kanagawa.

Although it's already FDU'd, I'm still doing shuttles to get that Devil Z stamp; I'm currently at killer whale stamp.

About time it sheds its "underrated" status. Easier said than done when you're the only non-JDM player in roughly 95 percent of your MT sessions.

this sounds kinda true on some BMW but... on your case of M1 it lands on MR drivetrain, M6 lands on a FR drivetrain

the only thing I'm going to nitpick about them was the weird engine sound (M3 E92, M6 and Z4)..... it sounds like an overpriced Vacuum cleaner...

M6 sounds exactly like the 4.4L V8 that it has except without grunt

still sounds pretty good imo

More fun than the FD to ya. Sounds like a fun car to me.
Thanks for your input. Hats off to you for achieving those times too. Love to see more people using this car in the game.

20 games away from fully tuning my M6 (Arcade closes early during weekdays rip). I feel like with it's weight, you really don't want to slide it since the speed loss seems hueg.

But when you're gripping throughout a corner, it feels great though. You can feel every kilogram of the car shifting it's weight :D

Tried M6 on battle aspect.... my only gripe for this is weight factor... car is long enough for outrun, apparently in ninja moves category is also lacking, accel is quite good nimble enough

i tried fighting with RX-8 and a Galant... I feel that I can't shove much against them, that I need more elbow grease or rather devious tactics...

but the boost is really good but not as worst than the broken ones =/

after testing it on M6 and switched it to Eunos Cosmo... and I burned the Galant to toast =P

yep... rage mode driving.... tried doing more nasty moves a notch higher (yes Slamming it to the wall everytime I get to plank the galant and ramming) =P

M6 seems a nice counter-burn car if you know how to handle its quirks =/

I've been comparing it to Aristo and Eunos Cosmo... since both are nasty and heavy....

Counter-Burn Tactics needs to be that evil/devious to work... the fun part is to take advantage on curves/technical areas... which on straight line is harder to beat those burners..

M6 has a good length... meaning you have a bit of edge in burning and countering them.... the fun part is to break/foil their tactics just enough to outburn them back (probably it's harder to fend off against insane Pros) Psychological tactics would help... Kenzzz'd them back harder is epic if you even pull off a miracle win =P

again my driving style is usally Evader/Runner... usually I let them pass for a bit and surprise them back on offense on the curves :shifty:

kek we both have something in common regarding playstyle

I guess the M6 would work well for passive blocking (i.e. letting them find openings only to shut the door right in their faces) rather than 'active' blocking (where you constantly read where your opponent is, like in 1v1 brake blocking/HK style)

unless I am mistaken somewhere but ye seems like the M6 is an interesting car to be familiar with

apparently.... the best psychological tactics we even did for the team was KnL and Millechan's tactics.. scaring the crap outta opponents by cussing on the screen (but not on opponents face)

but for me I just say "Burn Harder kiddo" or "you wanna go burnouts huh?" on the screen =P

apparently my way of losing them on turns is I ployed them to burn harder and when they defend and can't steer effectively and wham!... it works on scrubs who thinks that they're better on burnouts =P

M6 is s nice car just that you have to learn its own FR quirk... (tried Z34's tactics it didn't quite work that well) it feels grippy at times but it slides like a uncontrollable FR =P

Oh yeah.... M6 is also best at shoving traffic using Aero A.. which is another nice specialty for this

Now using Aero E for now.... and still awaiting Aero H

Supposedly going to play my M6 yet I forgot my card and still transferred my 2nd card instead :rolleyes:

Sadly my ninja moves on the M6 still failed me miserably... it still gets stuck on edges on the trucks tho <_<

Then again this car has good accel and boost...

I found a video wherein a Japanese player FT'd the cars and gave out graphs for each of them.

The translation of the courses in the graph (clockwise order):

C1
Hakone
Osaka
Wangan
Yokohama (Minato Mirai)
Fukuoka


And there are two BMWs I found interest in:

(IMG:https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2834/33102009320_b2f9b50077_z.jpg)

The M1 (by the time he made this video) made 4th in C1 TA rankings while the rest it's around the top 10. It is that good.


And the Z4 (which I'm almost done with the tuning):


(IMG:https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/703/33485432465_027d1c04c5_z.jpg)


He simply states that it's the "Foreign version of the FD" in terms of handling. It's the BMW preferred by many.


And based on my personal experience, the Z4 handles almost similar to that of the Mazda 110S...

Z4 very nimble and grippy, can confirm.

Also tends to slip past brake blockers really easily from my experience, brake blocking a Z4 is a bit like holding a fish with your bare hands instead of your nails

I remember spilling my spaghetti when I was explaining that fish/eel analogy to Ephexos kek

I wonder what the Works sticker for the Z4 would be like..... Wouldn't be surprised if it were a BMW Motorsport one.

I see. Thanks for the feedback. Will definitely make my Z4 a Ghost hunter once I FT it. The story is almost done.
