    So I was doing the B4 license test last nite for the thousandth time, trying to get a gold, when I discovered an old post at GTF. There is a GUARANTEED way to get a gold in this test: just use the D-pad! I was skeptical, but on my 2nd try I got a gold and blew away the requirement by over 2 tenths of a second (you need 23.700 seconds to get a gold here, I managed 23.411).

    What you need to do is tap on the steering rapidly, holding it down occasionally when the Nissan March starts to drift. Hold the X button, you won't need to let off the accel at all. Does anyone else have any trix like this? I wanna eventually get gold in all licenses as painlessly as possible.

    i cant get gold on anything. i got more gold medals on the rally parts in the I-A licence then i did on all the other licences. i have a controller with no analog (my analog is broken on my other one) and its still pretty hard

    Do you have a seat you can sit on? And a table for the wheel itself? :)

    I'm the same way: I race while I'm sitting up in bed with my back on a pillow against the wall. One of these days I'll get a wheel but then I'd have to get a real couch / desk setup to go along with it!

    On the March skidpad, I just hug the inside of the curb as close as possible. When I aimed for all-gold three years ago, I thought this one through, and got gold on the first try.

    Yeah, believe me, I tried it all...hugging the curb, driving halfway on it, driving fully on the tarmac..nothing worked. Then I tried the D-pad and got it on the 2nd try. Apparently when you tap the D-pad the front-drive system doesn't get a chance to understeer, so you car is constantly building speed instead of having it scrubbed off. That's my theory anyways.
