Ama Superbike Hint 1: ------- It's absolutely critical that you don't turn into a corner too early (even more so than with car racing sims). If you do, the bike will understeer heavily to the outside, and you will be completely offline for the straightaway that follows. By being patient and waiting for the proper turn-in point, you will be able to rocket out of the turn with considerably more speed. Hint 2: ------- If you have the traction-control aid turned off, your bike will slide out from under you every time you so much as touch a blade of grass on the outside of a corner. Oddly enough, you can put your wheels on the grass or dirt located on the inside of the turn without suffering any such dire consequences. Use this to your advantage as much as possible, but don't cut the corner too much, or you will bring on a stop-and-go penalty for shortcutting. Hint 3: ------- If you use a multiple-axis joystick with a twist grip and a separate throttle control, you can map your rider's lean-and-pitch movements to these axes for more hands-on control and a somewhat greater challenge. Cornering: ---------- Do not turn into a corner too early or your bike will understeer heavily to the outside, and you will not be lined up for the straightaway that follows. Be patient and wait for the proper turn-in point to leave the turn with more speed. If you have the traction control off, your bike will slide out from under you if you drive over the grass on the outside of a corner. However, you can ride on the grass or dirt on the inside of a turn without the same effect. Use this to cut corners, but do not go too far in to avoid a stop-and-go penalty for shortcutting.
