This thread is for those completely new to the drag racing world and have no idea how to "Drag". Since drag racing is not yet an official online supported event in GT5, us draggers have had to improvise a system to fairly race cars against each other. This thread will hopefully answer most of your questions.

Step one: Go to the online lobby and select the track "Special Stage Route: X".


Step two: You will be greeted with many different rooms to join. Avoid the ones that say "drag anything" or "have fun" as these are most likely the rooms full of people in X1s who's version of drag racing is smashing into everyone at 100,000,000mph. Choose one with something along the lines of "DRAG BS=KICK". Also make sure to make friends with the good, fair draggers as they are few and far between.


Step three: Upon entering the lobby, look and see which cars everyone else are driving. Try to choose a competitive car (This might be useful) as no one likes that one guy coming out in his Veyron to race Supras and Muscle cars. Turn all assists off and enter the track.


Step four: When you enter the track, you will usually drive to the "600M" marker. There, many cars will be lining up. Then, a car will park in front of you. Pay attention as when that car "ghosts" or goes clear, that is your signal to go. Race until you hit the "1000M" marker. Slow down and when you come back, stay on the left-most lane so you don't crash into anyone. Rinse & Repeat Thumbs Up

~ Tips:
  • To be the "ghost", wait until the cars are lined up and you hear both if their engines revving. Then, when you want to, press and hold e-brake and press start (While holding e-brake). The two racers should then take off passing through you. Don't ghost right as the they pull up but don't wait 10 or 15 seconds either. Keep em' guessing.
  • When racing, try to stay in your own line and not hit your opponent.
