Why is the racing in this game so F'ing bad???

I am trying to wrap up the racing missions and I can't seem to bring myself to keep trying to do these piss poor races. I swear that the vehicles handle similar to humping a doorknob. I mean seriously, what is the point of adding racing to this game??? I have looked everywhere and can't find a brightness setting because trying to race at night is a lost cause. Trying to drive around or through all of the traffic is a lost cause. Maybe this game should be called "Lost Cause!" Anyways, if you have any tips that will help me get through these, please post here.

While I'm ranting, I would also like to ask this question. I am trying to knock out the 50 Side Missions so I am doing as the guide said and I am taking Side Missions from the Defense Headquarters. Why is it that if they send you out to do a mission that they shoot at you when you return???? WTF sense does that make???

Just out of curiosity, did you know that your Profile name is a bastardization of the German word for "dirty?"

lol, yes it is, but i'm dutch.. It's a word we don't use often and you spell it like this: Schmutzig. You can probably translate it to 'crusty' best. But, back to your questions;

I am currently completing the races and the only one that frustrates me is #7. I want to use the gyro copter thing but the race countdown won't trigger.. I did most of the others with the gyro and it works. Just fly over the trees and stuff to the next checkpoint, go down in the red markers, otherwise you'll miss them. Just about the height where the white arrow is in the markers. This way, it's very easy..

I still have to do the side missions, but i will follow the method used in the guide for it. Why they shoot you? Who shoots at you? Check the bars at the left side on the screen, do you have a wanted level i some way?

I'm stuck on a few liberation missions.

Edit: I just finished race #7. Yesterday i attempted to start it for about 20 times, with no result. Today it worked on the first attempt. Maybe you have to save your game near #7, load it again and go straight to the start line.. Maybe it will work after resetting your XBox..? Weird..

Race #1 can't be done with the gyro..

I'm doing race #5 and I missed a jump and ended up landing below the ramp area where I am now stuck. Seeing as how I cannot get out of the area I have to reload my game and lose any progress since getting stuck. This game is a piece of sh*t. I really liked the first Mercenaries game which is why I picked this game up, but for the record, this is a very poor imitation of Merc 1 or 2. As soon as I am finished the game is going in the trade pile with the quickness...

Can you continue to play this game after you have finished the story? I am really frustrated with the races and if possible I will just complete the game and then come back to these races when my give-a-sh*t factor is a little higher.

Have not played this in so long, but I remember absolutely hating the hell out of race 7. Never did try it with the gyro though, maybe I will go back and try that out.

#7 was a real pain in the ass until I picked the gyrocopter as my vehicle. Could've prevented wasting hours of time if I tried that earlier.

I thinkbthe races were pretty ok to get done. But oh boy, the driving system does suck.
