Hint: Perfect shifting is essential for a good run, and because an automatic
tranny just won't cut it, you should learn to monitor redline in all gears and
shift right there.
Hint: There's a good reason some cars cost more than others. In the GT3 class,
for instance, an unmodified Porsche 911 will wax an unmodified Saleen Mustang.
Therefore, if you can squeak by in one series without blowing all your dough
on a full load of equipment, do it, and save your money for a better car in
the next series.
Hint: When purchasing new components, it pays to upgrade slightly in as many
categories as possible, rather than going real heavy in just one or two. For
example, it's better to sport midrange tires, midrange brakes, and a midrange
turbo charger than to go with an expensive high-end turbo and marginal
Hint: Learn the course in advance! Then practice until you know exactly where
each turn begins, what its length and radius is, and where it ends. And make
use of all that track width--enter corners from the outside, cut in close to
the apex, and swing out wide again for maximum speed. Remember, inconsistency
coupled with the odd flash of brilliance will get you nowhere fast.
