11 posts in this topic

Anyone know the best drift car setup for these drift zones. They're doing my head in seriously.

What car did you use? I'll try that tomorrow.

Try C63, preferably not with much of tuning on engine and transmission. You don't really need a fast car here, but powerful enough to to keep momentum uphill.

 

For dirt, get Subaru, no matter much of a set up, you'll get much more points than you need with this car.

I saved up for the koenigsegg and used that. The starter cars won't cut it

I done every drift event, including the offroad ones, with the following.

 

Mazda RX7
Engine:
Slots all Ultimate +


Chassis:
Pro+ suspension
Elite everything else

 

Drivetrain:
Elite DRAG tires
Super showcase differential

 

Traction control OFF.

 

Power into a drift and counter-steer, tapping R2 as needed, and it will keep you going sideways.

 

It also helps to get a good run up and enter the drift zone sideways, particularly for a specific event which name I can't remember (the one that requires a 100k score downhill on an S-bend).

 

Hope this helps.

This is work, I just use stock engine and almost furst try every challenge,  the only thing that make you fail is random npc car.

Thanks

Yeah this one I saw on a video on YouTube and it worked for me too.

I've had massive problems with the drift zones due to a wrong set up. Took me hours for a single drift zone. Things changed when I discovered this Video The Secret to Drifting in NFS Heat | Drifting Guide - YouTube

 

Changed my set up and were able to get almost every drift zone first try with way more points, than needed for 3 Stars. I used the following Set Up:

 

Car: RX-7 Spirit R '02

 

Engine

Engine: 562 hp 3,8l V8

Crankshaft: Ultimate+

ECU: Ultimate+

Cooling: Ultimate+

Exhaust: Ultimate+

Turbo: Ultimate Dual Turbo Charger 

Nitrous System: 5 x 3LB Tanks

 

Chassis

Suspension: Super Speedcross Suspension

Brakes: Elite

Tires: Elite Speedcross Tires

 

Drive Train

Clutch: Elite+ Clutch

Gearbox: Super 5 Speed

Differential: Speedcross Differential

 

Auxiliary

Active: Repair Kit

Passive: Nitrous Extra Mix

 

Live Tuning:

Steering Sensitivity: High

Downforce: Low

Traction Control: Off

Drift Style: Gas

 

Also I didn't drift quite the way the game tells us to do. I held down gas all the way and just used the steering to start drifts. In few cases the hand brake also helped.

I highly recommend this set-up. It helped me a lot.

I haven’t gotten there yet, but thanks for posting.  I’ll definitely give this a look.

Following the YouTube video and Leo3572's advice made a night and day difference with my drift scores. Drift zones I had previously only managed one star on became WAY easier to three star. I used an almost identical setup on a Mazda RX-7 Spirit R, except only one of my engine parts was an Ultimate and the rest were Elites. Thank you!
