Just like in real life, it keeps weight on the front. So it makes the bike more manageable in corners and while accelerating etc.

There is no forward and backwards lean at the moment, so the standing position is relatively neutral. When you're accelerating etc. it's likely to lift the front and make you for susceptible to high-sides etc.

aaand can u make your rider sitting everytime until you push the button?. so that he stands when you push the key an sits down again when u release the key?

he sits as long as your holding the key down. on flat corners, "dab" is really useful.

Maybe set it as the "Caps Lock" button?

I reckon that would be a sweet idea, having it so you have to press a button when you want to sit or stand, instead of holding a button down

It can be usefull when to whip too / scrub. Becouse he straightn up in the air if u sit down.. but if u wanna do a massive whip and land it, stand up and lay down in the takeoff, then 2 secs before the landing press the sit button, and u will maybie land on you'r wheels. just a good tip, and yeah when im in whipping tips, if ur whip gets too big, and u know u cant land it, just sit down and push the breaks and give it a lil gas right after the tap.


Peace out!

Hi,

do yuo just use the sit button for corners? what about jumps? straights? I find myself getting kicked over the bars in every supercross track?

if u are just starting i wouldn't recommend super cross. If u are however going over the bars make sure you are in a higher gear (not hitting the rev limiter) have to be driving completely off the up ramp.

I personally sit in almost every corner, gives much better stability

one way to not get thrown over the bars on a supercross jump is to blip the throttle right on the face. just pop the clutch. i use dab in most corners, but not all, through the whoops, and thats it.

make sure you never leave the face of a jump without throttle on, i shift up one gear in every jump exactly before i leave the ground
