    haven't played the reverse tracks much, but i think the hardest track (for me at least) is sol2. something about -right, right, right, right, slight left, right doesn't appeal to me. I also think vineta is tricky because of the lack of gradual turns- i use the d-pad so its difficult to follow a good line. anulpha, moa, and metropia are all fairly easy. Sebenco is awesome. i hated it at first but then realised the turns are all about the approach- and its really fun trying to set yourself on the right path. Chengou's inverse camber will always be tricky, but once you learn how the hit the chicane, it' not so bad. Ubermall rocks as well, love taking finger off x at that sharp chicane to hear the engine kick back in- great sound , plus that boost plus barrel roll bit is awesome, love how that spectator protection thing is gone.

    For me the easiest track is Moa Therma Forward, i mustve put 2000 laps on that track

    I dont see why you guys are saying Sebenco (r) is hard, i love it!

    What Really makes me tick is Chengou, ive had such a terrible experience with that track, im not even going to see what the reverse is

    I like Venita K because of the very fact its so narrow and fast, but then I also enjoy the wideness that Moa Therma provides since it's easier to move out the way if you spot a bomb or mines ahead. Of course its got all those wide open straights which are good for smashing people with weaponry, always a joy

    As for the tracks I don't feel they progressively get harder or the order they appear in would need changing. Harder tracks I'd have to say were Ubermall reverse and Chenghou forwards. Easier ones Anulpha reverse and Moa Therma in both directions.

    Hi again, mates.

    easiest: Moa Therma

    hardest: Chengou Project (5 explosion of mine in one race oh God, it's my fav track ) )

    Just one point: I have a little experience on reverse tracks, so all the reverses are like HELL for me

    I quite like Vineta K reverse.
    Hitting an early BR, plus slick flying through the tunnel and down the straight, and you quickly realise who's on it and whos not.

    Sol2 reverse is probably the hardest in my opinion, some nasty turns hit you on bumbs, though with some slick sideshifting your quick times can feel very rewarding

    Ubermall reverse isnt exactly a doddle either. Easy to clip walls on high speed corners and lose buckets of time, plus the chicane before the jump is nowhere near as simple as it is normally.

    I haven't played enough of the reverse tracks to comment on the difficulty of tracks per se-- I mean, in terms of *general* difficulty for time trialing and multiplayer.

    What I can say is that I struggle *a lot* with Sol 2 in getting first place finishes with "elite" AI. I don't know if that reflects my poor racing lines or missed barrel roll opportunities or whatever.

    Anybody else in this position?

    Make sure you use the right pitch when turning those corners, a nice smooth turn through the corner is what you want, don't swing too far out either. Once you nails the corners and pitch the Elite AI aren't so Elite anymore, I laugh in the face of those trophy collection people on other forums who whine they are too hard to beat and we can't get the trophies wah wah wah.

    same for me, havent really tried the reverse track except online.

    I sure had a really hard time to get this gold medal elite on Sol2, i didnt make any BR nor used pitching that much still need to improve this part, just had some luck with weapon

    now all i need is chengou elite, and the last tournament, then i'll have my elite campaign trophy and i'll be happy.

    Ubermall F and Metropia R are the easiest for me

    Ubermall R is hard because the design is stupid. Especially the the 2nd chicane before the ramp. I mean even when autopilot gets that turn wrong you know that isn't right
