Initial D5/D8 Gameplay
The initial D5 explored a tire consumption system, and its gameplay have become more mature. This game play process can be divided into the following levels.
- Instant play method: Instant play method means braking with empty oil and air brake after entering the corner and then sliding to exit the corner and then add the oil. Since brake and throttle are not in the same period, it is called intermittent.
- Non-Stop Play Method: Non-stop play method means braking after entering the corner and continuing to press the brake until the center of the bend is passed and the brake is directly released to give oil to the corner. Since the brakes and accelerators always operate during cornering operations, which one is called “uninterrupted”.
- Shadowless Feet: Shadowless Feet refers to the playing method that the car quickly stepped on and released the accelerator after braking on the straight to make the car drift around the corner and maintain the cornering speed. There are two branching methods: constantly add oil at low corners speed and add oil quickly in high corners speed. Shadowless fee is name from the constant rapid oil filling during cornering operations.
- EG (Early Gas): EG technique is based on the non-stop play method, drifts the car out of the corner before braking and adding oil. Since the oil is given earlier in the cornering operation than in the old version, it is called Early Gas.
- GC technique (Gas Cancel): GC technique is based non-stop play method step on the accelerator in the braking process to keep the car drifting in the corner. There are many operational branches derived from GC play, such as loose brake GC, tread brake GC, full oil GC, and half oil GC. It is called Gas Cancel because of the action of the brake chasing the accelerator during cornering operation is similar to D4’s BC (Brake Cancel).
- Semi-oil technique: Semi-oil technique is a new play style combines the dynamics of EG and GC to keep the car drifting when entering or exiting a corner. The code speed change during cornering is natural: abandon the uninterrupted, and return to the instant play method. The car’s cornering dynamics include both the GC technique’s entry drift and the EG technique’s exit drift.
The initial D5/D8 cornering skills
- Try to follow the best route: outside-inside-outside running method. When the car is close to the corner, it turns a little bit outwards. When pass the center of the corner, it is close to the inside. And when exit the corner, it is close to the outside.
- When drifting, turn on the steering wheel when entering the corner. Let the car drive to the center of corner, then step on the accelerator, and adjust the direction accordingly. Drifting is to move the car backwards by the center of gravity of the car. Normally the front of the car will be close to the inside when exiting a corner. When you watch other people’s drifting videos, you will see the direction of the wheels of the car during the drifting process, outward and not inward from time to time. But the drifting skill need to practice more, find more sense, and be able to have accurate judgment of the car at high speeds.
- The basic principle of the gearbox is that the low gear with high torque is easy to control. And the high gear with fast speed is suitable for acceleration. You can reduce it by 1-2 gears after you have learned the driving. You can consider using the card gear to make corners after you are proficient in driving. When you are passing the corner, downshift first and then quickly return to high-end so that the car can easily pass.
