Ok, I just started playing this game [ well totally new to XBOX honestly! lol ] and I'm really just interested in the drag racing part right now [ plus I absolutely SUCK at doing laps with the controller... need a steering wheel for that! tongue.gif ]

Anyways.. it appears to me that the only way to unlock cars and modify'em [ other than just adjusting the tire pressure rolleyes.gif ] is to win in the laps .. Is that correct ?

Can I unlock and modify cars [ suspension, engine mods, dyno etc etc ] by racing the quarter mile only ??

Just wondering smile.gif

Thanks!!

Yeah, its in Point to Point tracks, Quarter Mile track. Most cars will finish it within 15 to 10 seconds, so its not That fun.

There is a way by creating a profile with a specific name... Check Gamefaqs or search the forum. Hell, there is a topic not more then 3 around yours that has it. Too lazy to look for it. lol

I know the quarter mile poimt to point isn't all that fun.. but I totally suck at steering the cars using the controller!! unsure.gif

I wish there was a good responsive steering wheel out there for the XBOX that didn't cost an arm and leg!

I personally use the MC2 with Forza and find it is more than capable. It is fairly sturdy, and only cost $35 for the xbox specific version. Forza even has a controller setup setting for the MC2 wheel in the game by default.
