    I'm bad at games. I crashed a least 20 times on my first few (um dozen) attempts. Perhaps we can share some tips and strategies. I'm sure people will enjoy my tips.

    WARNING: I'm not trying to sabotage other people's chances. These are my legitimate tips...

    My tips::thumbsup:
    [*]Learn the feel of the car before trying to master the game!
    [*]Turn off the sound in the game menu. The game runs smoother with it off (for me anyways)
    [*]Start turning before you reach the corner. It helps when you're driving fast
    [*]The grass and sand areas slow you down fast. They can help when your about to lose control. I do that a lot!
    [*]Remember you have a brake. It doesn't help me though. I rely on it too much
    [*]Don't take my advice. I can't drive any faster than 3.03.18. I have no skill playing driving games :o

    My major problem is getting around the large sand area. I can't get around that huge corner without crashing. I have to drive on the sand. It takes too much time.

    I feel like I driving Miss Daisy and myself up the wall. Any ideas?
