URL Guide: How to start Winning!

This thread is for the people who is struggling in Underground Racing League Tournaments, a.k.a, "URL", complaining about OP cars and etc...
Here I will talk about a necessary strategy you will need to start winning these tournemants, or atleast stop finishing 50 seconds behind.

So, I will separate this thread in 5 Topics:
1- URL Meta
2- Learning the tracks
3- Where to use your Nitrous
4- Adjusting your setup
5- Improvement

So let's start.
1- URL Meta:
What is a Meta?
"In games, the "meta" is referring to what are the strongest strategies currently. For example, in League of Legends the "meta" is a phrase that means whatever champions are strongest at the moment. This can fluctuate because of patches that change balance and just because champions that are counters to the strongest then become strong themselves."
So, here in NFS:SA, the meta are the strongest cars for URL, every score has a dominant car, I will talk about every single good car for every Score. Note: These cars can change between buffs and nerfs with updates aswell.

250 Score: Kuruma
Kuruma is Very dominant in this score, but needs a good Dyno setup plus some skills, Primo, Bravura and Intruder can compete well here too.


300 Score: Super GT/Mamba/Buffalo/Sultan
Yeah class B cars, Mamba is quite the Dominant here, but Sultan, Buffalo and Super GT can compete quite well with it, No cars below B class can beat these cars on this score(Unless the driver is bad, and your "X" class car have good setup). Honorable mention: Blista Compact.

350 Score: Super GT/Mamba
Again, but now Mamba is far way more dominant here, Super GT still can compete well, but no other car can beat these two.

400 Score: Mamba/Cheetah/Infernus
Yeah class A cars, people really hate to race against these cars, without any dyno setups these things can win without effort, but it's the meta ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  We can do nothing about it, just accept it and wait till balancing comes. Anyway now about the cars, these cars have very good acceleration and turning for this score, Mamba with good Setup can do very well here too.

450 Score: Bullet/Infernus/Cheetah
Same thing, Infernus and Cheetah with good setup are Unbeatable here.

Unlimited Score: Bullet/Cheetah/Infernus
Same thing as 450.

It's boring cause no car variety and all, yeah I know, but think about it, with more people using the Meta cars, the more competitive and fun URL will become, and people will stop complaining about OP cars, because they will be driving then themselfs! Have you participated in a one Car only Event on URL? It's quit fun, everyone is very close to each other, and who messes up first are screwed, It's quite competitive this way, you just need to Improve your racing Line plus learn the track and bum, you will start winning, but yeah having these cars aren't quite enough to win yet so please keep reading the rest of the Topics. (Oh but I don't have RP neither money to have one of these meta cars...) Well, have Intruder on 250, it's Unlocked since you're starting the game, It's your best choice atm...

2- Learn the tracks:
As I said before, you need to learn your car and the tracks, you have access to the Speedway Tracks on Dyno Menu, go there, and do all the Routes, do 5, 10, 20, 50 or even 100 laps in each route, race there until you stop making mistakes with the car you're using, don't use nitrous, only use the performance of your car, and just practice and practice until you have memorized the paths of every Route.

3- Where to use the nitrous:
From time to time I see people wasting your precious nitrous on useless places, panicking trying to overtake someone, dude, chill, seriously, Use your nitrous strategically, it's one of the most usefull tools to make overtakes, don't waste it on random parts of the tracks, search where your car will benefit more of the nitrous and always save some for long straights, never use nitrous before a sharp turn, cause you will lose all your momentum you gained using your nitrous.

I made a video to help people with the places to use nitrous on every route:
(Video Soon)

4- Adjust your Setup
You need to have in mind, that people are using different setups than yours, always try to improve your setup, see on the tracks where you are winning and where are you losing, "I'm losing on straights? or I'm Losing out of Corners? Do I have enough Top speed to keep up? I'm losing because I have no Acceleration?" Always ask yourself these questions, of course you also have to have a good sense of your setup while driving "Can my car do this turn without braking? Can my car do this and this?" Etc...

5- Improve!
Always keep racing, no matter if you are winning or losing, always race and race, because the more you're racing more you are improving your skills, don't get mad if you lose all the Tournaments, just join the next tournament and race again and try to do better than before, believe on your own balls, you can do it! And btw... Locust isn't that impressive... (The money and the RP you win on tournaments are more worth it).

So hopefully this will help people on These Tournaments, Thanks for the attention.  Big Grin

Add mamba to max 300 and 350, also primo is good at this score. I will check primo on max 250 soon. I don't think that intruder is better, I get all top times on URL in primo

Mamba loses to SGT and Sultan, and Primo loses to Intruder aswell, if you have top times with Primo nice, but you can do better with Intruder on max score.

If Mamba can compete with A class with the same score it only means it deserve it's score, why should it get nerf then?

And btw as I said on the thread, sgt and sultan can compete on these scores aswell.

Probably, Mamba doesn't like to turn w/o dyno.

I never lose to another b class car but ok.

Mamba is hard to drive because on stock it have F90/10R strange weight balance, it's almost impossible to make 50/50, but with pro WR and seting center of mass to -10 u get something like 55/45 and mamba starts to act normally.

And then mamba have best cornering ability in b class, odc set tires to -10 and full downforce.

Mamba can turn like A class, and as u see I make Top off all, I beat full sultan with 350 score mamba, and I make this time almost on all laps

OK then, since you're só convinced that mamba is that good... The mambas I raced against on 300 finished 20~ sec behind my sgt, but idk in other scores, and if its really that good, I will update the thread recommending Mamba as a meta car.
