Tell me about it i f$cking hate them races, the yellow car thats twice the size of the rest is also twice as bloody fast and when turning the car just spins around in a 360 spin most of the time.

The monster truck races are also crap imo, bad handling again.

Yup HATE IT! If you haven't already just wait till you get to the Mine Guido level... I was stuck in a never ending fall through the map twice, and once he just drove through the bridge got stuck did a loop and all the cars ran over me... AMAZING ugh

Yeah....I am certain they made the Guido challenges the way they did because they dont expect kids to notice the crappy racing dynamics!!! I wouldn't expect Guido to drive like a finely tuned Forza car...haha!

I am stuck trying to beat BUBBA at the Rustbucket for now, I beat him once...but I came in second in the race and so I didn't "win"!!! Boo!

Just got the game in from gamefly and I have to agree those damn challenges are retarded. The slightest bump and you go out of control. So do you have to recieve gold in every event?

this is pretty much one of the shittiest games i've played in a long time. knowing i only need 3rd or higher is a relief.

In the first Guido challenge, no matter if I place 1st or 4th, every time I go to the marker, I see no standings for the races I've completed for that event. Is this happening for anyone else?

**Update: Just did the second one and the same result. Placed first but no standings when I go back to the event.

Wow. These are horrendous. I was finally getting somewhere and the big car fucking knocks me from behind, I spin... even though I let go of all the controls, and I'm last again. ARRRGH.

I also have to agree, the only thing im missing is these can't find a easy way to do them, they either overtake me or for some reason i do a 180 spin or it ends up on its side this is a propper head fck

I try not to post to complain but this was some of the worst designed controls in a game I've ever seen. It felt like my controller was broken with spinning out sometimes for no reason and forget trying to turn properly. In the end, relied on luck to get through it after much screaming. To think this is a kids game is a huge shame for these developers. I can't imagine any kids that this game is targeted towards getting through these.

Tell me about it. Never thought I'll get this much stress playing a VG that's supposedly aimed at kids. Heck, if my cousin (who's 4) played it, I'm sure he'll pull a tantrum. My swear box is practically full at the moment.

Here's a Q: to unlock the feathered yellow car, do I have to come 1st place in ALL Guido's races? I've completed the game 100% & checked my vehicle list & she's absent. I know this cuz I used a cheat to unlock every1 just so to use as a checklist of how many vehicles I should unlock (also I don't want to use the cheat every time I boot up the VG - I'm a perfectionist when it comes to unlocking characters/lvls even though I doubt I'll use the character anyways). I hope this is not the case as its a pain to play through these races (apart from #1 & #9), I'm lucky to get to 3rd place (just) nevermind 1st.

i too have noticed that happening it makes me mad, i spend longer playing these races than the story to get into first, and what happens no standings at all

and does anyone know what the patch did to this game i just loaded it up and it made me update?

I don't know if its just me or what but when u do the challenges the last 2 laps the others cars seem to go slower than they do in the beginning. Also for me drifting seems to make me spin out more so try not using that as much.

Glad I'm not the only one. Slammed the controller on the ground and broke the A and B buttons. Wife was pissed at me. Fuck it though. I orded a new one off amazon since they are running deals on them for 29 bucks.

After going to hell on this insane hard cart ride I have completing it (kart race 6 took about 12 tries), I have some tips.

On kart race 6 you can use a short cut right after you make a hard turn and go under some eh rings then race for a couple of seconds and cross over to the other side.
Even if it tells you you're going off track you just have time to make it and save valuable time. Without this trick it seems undoable.

The Cart race In Santa Burbura has only 2 real bad spots where you must never drift, 1 = before a high jump) remember them and use a lot of drift throughout the rest of the track and you make it after 5-10 tries.

900/1000 and no more unlocking thus far.

Oh god thank you! I was going insane, only 3 races left of this hell.

Just finished them & only advice I can give is persevere - you will eventually have a race where you dont spin off too much. Found on the mine level that the best way to avoid spinning on the railtracks was to steer into the side "walls" on the corners.
At least no never ending collectable acheivement!

Sincerely hope there is a special place in Hell reserved for the game designer of the Guido Kart Races, for the developers that coded it, for the crappy QA that said it was working, and for everyone associated with it's inclusion in the Cars franchise game. May you all rot.

I was slowly losing my will to live, thanks to these Kart-races... But, in the end I found that when I used the walls in corners as a guidance it made me not spin so much... Maybe this is the key to this race. Oh and found a couple of short-cuts to help me "win" (I think I've only come in first on the first race...) :(

i felt the same too, until i realized that doing the LT - drifting thing doesnt work, and the only way to corner nicely in the mines and a couple other tracks on dirt is to;

hold the gas down around the turn but tap X too as you make the turn.

as long as ur speed is about 85-90 or lower you shouldnt spin out...

after i figured this out the kart races were a breeze, hope it helps

I would just like to say i have noticed that anytime the car with the stupid feather on top gets close to me in the last lap of a guido race, my steering goes to shit for no apparent reason. And I don't mean I am spinning out on a corner, I am spinning out on a straight stretch of track. I am really having to hold back from putting this game disc through a cycle in the microwave.

EDIT: I swear Pong had a better physics engine than this game.

Guido kart is totally impossible to win, i wasnt able to win a race in 5 hours of trying, I hope all of the developers of this race mode will die the worst kind of death and go to hell, where they will have to play this game mode for the whole century.

Just finished the game and got Gold on all the Guido races! The last gave me the most problems because every other car would have smoke or ghost and still boost when I did. Won that race by 0.015. Worst mini games ever!
