Hey guys was hoping that we could get a bunch of us together in a party chat and shoot a few videos of how to overtake with respect, I know some of our crew struggle with contact through lack of confidence if they had some pointers on how to and how to be overtaken it may help them a lot.

it would also give us a demonstration of what we expect from drivers from outside the crew, could contain examples of how to react to an accident and such slowing down in safe way to let victim of incident through without causing issues and how to lap others are hot topics atm.

Maybe we could just do 5 laps somewhere before SRL or two bros.

Anyone interested just post here and can arrange properly once numbers are in.

Perfect Lann, if anyone else has anything saved that could show good etiquette would be great, then on top a video with a party chat too would be a cracking starting point for the thread.

Did I cause the crash between @zmurko and the car inside?

No, you did well by leaving enough space for me, I got a love bump from JC I think, which sent me into a spin.

To be honest alot of it is common sense and having spacial awareness. Plus having the camera set to highest level and map expanded helps.

Most incidents are caused either by people being impatient and going for gaps that arn't there or simply not giving racing room and squeezing people into walls etc.

Best advice I can give if trying to overtake is try different lines, ie if the guy in front is being defensive the taking the inside line, try taking a wider line into the corner so you get a better exit. That's what I try and do anyway.

No not at all. You were on the racing line and neither of their cars were alongside yours so you had the right to take the racing line. If another cars nose is alongside your car in this situation you have to give them the room on the inside. even if you didnt give space in this situation it would not be your fault. There is a lot of trust involved in racing. The cars on the inside should know that you are going to cut across them as you enter the corner because it's your right of way, so should brake earlier to avoid collision. To deal with less experienced racers I often give them space anyway because sometimes they aren't spacially aware and sometimes side swipe me as I'm turning through the corner.

Also when you're going up the inside of someone you have to trust that they give you room and don't just cut across you. - this has happened many times but even though it's not my fault I always give the place back since they were ahead of me before the collision.

*Not saying anyone is inexperienced here, just using this video as an example*

The battle for 4th in the supercup between me @Mythaga and @Jc10110 is a prime example of how great racing can be when you all respect and trust each other, and it was fun too. We all trusted each other to give room, and trusted each other's braking points into corners.

Not sure I can add anything, played racing games/sims and watched motorsports for nearly 20 years, like most stuff, practice makes perfect.

I bet many people in the crew have only done racing in GTAO, so they're learning all the time.

What Potato says is good info, trust and anticipation is massive in racing, aside from that, build up your racing experience (not just going fast around a track) and you'll improve.

And hold your lines, others will have much less problems anticipating what you're up to.

:angry:

 

Black & green Surfer is an example of what not to do in contact racing.

Yeah he took me out, took you out and then had the cheek to say his race was ruined by being hit at the end.

Again, an example where not holding your line and weaving left and right on a straight only causes accidents. This is one of the major reasons kerb boosting on straights (weaving) is so frowned upon in this crew, not to mention it's not allowed to change your line more than once on a straight by normal racing rules anyway. 

This is a video from what is supposed to be top of the top contact racing on PS4, GT1 class of NODO's MCEC championship, yet you can see how them desperately seeking any tiny rev boost (those highway rumble strips) only ends up badly for everyone around:

      Rallycross track(no joker lap) that runs through the Great Chaparral area. It's a fairly well used area for races, but I've added a few extra off-road sections to try and give it a different feel. Designed for the Rally Sports cars with the Off-Road class also available. Off-Road is more of a challenge than Sports, as the Trophy Trucks like to roll over in the initial off-road section. It's set as a Standard race, the first off-road section might be too tight for it, but the rest of the roads should be wide enough for contact to be on. Laps run about 1:15, unless your name's Ally Crawford.
      The first corner was tricky to get the arrows on the checkpoints to show where to go and how sharp the corner is. If anyone has an issue with how the first few CPs are placed, or anything else in the race, just let me know.

      Can't handle the heat my friend? You and 29 other adrenaline junkies are heading for some action in Fort Zancudo. Run as GTA, night, wanted level ON.

      Using Stunt Props for a more dramatic effect, I've revived the dreader Pro Laps in HD format with new cars and a slightly different route. Enjoy!

      This thread is going to contain all of my Race of Champions style head to head racing tracks where two cars go head to head on different circuits of approximately the same length. At the end of the first lap you will automatically go on to the alternate track for the second lap and so on. Trust the jumps and not the checkpoint arrows at the crossovers. Please turn customs & slipstream off for balanced races.
      I will give each one it's own little section and write up as they develop. 
      1. Zancudo

      Name: ROC Zancudo RSC Link : https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/ps4/jobs/job/NqlOvV1U8U-AaEcIKAjuHQ Recommended Car: Omnis Laps: 6 Set to 6 laps, this is the original course of the series. This race will take about 5 minutes to complete when using the Stock Omnis. There are 7 points on track where the competing cars can crossover each other. This is the track used for the inaugural XDBX Racing Champions Trophy. 
      2. Del Perro

      Name: ROC Del Perro RSC Link : https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/member/squirrelarmy/games/gtav/jobs/job/i74NSmvR2EmH7jUBIqruQg?platformId=11 Recommended Car: TBC Laps: 6 The second track in the series is a completely enclosed course situated just off Del Perro beach. This track is designed to be faster than the original and includes more hairpins but less jumps. There's a large viewing area at the start line where spectators can leave their cars and view the whole circuit without affecting the drivers currently racing. 
      3. Vespucci

      Name: ROC Vespucci RSC Link : https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/member/squirrelarmy/games/gtav/ps4/jobs/job/Vybt6nAJbEGIqWSiXQW98g Recommended Car: Raptor Laps: 6 The third race of the series and possibly the most challenging. This track is set partially on the beach. The different surfaces and three wheel car will make this a unique driving experience. 
      4. Sandy Shores

      Name: ROC Sandy Shores RSC Link : https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/member/squirrelarmy/games/gtav/ps4/jobs/job/EkSBaq9ZhkKladJpmRycvw Recommended Car: Omnis Laps: 6 The fourth race of the series takes us back to the Omnis and a track set both on and off road with lots of crossovers. 
      This track is in the testing stage.

      There are now three versions of this track, please use the one appropriate to your playlist.
      1. Recreation of the famous F1 circuit in 1:1 scale.

      Fast and flowing, all classes are available but supers recommended. Track is wide enough to race comfortably with contact and slipstream. Track follows the route faithfully but not very demanding using the slower speeds of GTA.
      RSC Link : http://rsg.ms/4a1bb5c
       
      2. Slightly smaller more demanding version which will be used for the Supercup. As it's smaller the corners are tighter and twistier. There's still room for contact racing but I recommend slipstream to be turned off for this version. This version of the track includes the ferris wheel on Del Perro Pier as decoration. This race also includes a functioning pitlane and a lot more decorative props than the full size version. 

      RSC Link : http://rsg.ms/3ac7f03
       
      3. Just for fun I've even made a race using the short course heavily featured in Gran Turismo. Mainly aimed at Compact and Muscles. It will be a nice small scale drifting track. Less than a mile long I recommend at least 10 laps for each race.
