  6. 6. HEAT ONLINE BASICSThe focus of HEAT Online, previously known as Level-R and Project Torque, isto win races. It’s an online MMORG (Massively Multiplayer Online RacingGame) that’s FREE TO PLAY!OVERVIEWOne of the many differences of HEAT is that it’s a realistic 3D racing game.There are no battle items like missiles knocking you out of first place rightbefore you cross the finish line. However, they did add battle items for somerace modes like Sumo.Instead you’ll need to become a better racer than your opponents to win.GAME PLAYThe game play offered by HEAT Online is a pretty realistic drivingexperience. You can choose the view you like and start racing.You’ll notice that as your car gets damaged the damage system changes yourgame play. This further adds to the realistic driving experience.

  8. 8. RACING FUNDAMENTALSNow that you know the basics of HEAT Online and why you should learn howto win, it’s time to reveal what you need to know so you can start winning.First, it is important you understand and learn racing fundamentals. This iskey as winning races depends on your ability to drive.Understanding the fundamentals of the game is extremely important if youwant to cross that finish line first.Before you can even consider using advanced strategies and driving tacticsyou need to become a master of the basic gameplay.As with any ordinary racing strategy, you usually want to drive fast withoutmaking mistakes while taking advantage of your opponent’s errors.Learning the fundamentals is crucial. It’s hard to recover from a horriblemistake in a race.MASTER YOUR UNIT CONTROLThere are two ways to drive. You can use the typical keyboard, a gamepad orget a steering wheel. TIP: A steering wheel will improve your handling making it easier to race. It also makes it more realistic.You need to become familiar with your controls. This will only happen asyou play the game more.As everybody is different and likes different types of controls, you’ll need todetermine what works best for you.Make sure you get a controller you are comfortable with.Kick ASS and Take Names ProjectTorque.com Page 9
  9. 9. KEYBOARD CONTROLSYou can fully customize the controls to suit your needs, but here are thedefault control settings:If you are going to be using your keyboard to race with you’ll want to stick tothe first-person, cockpit view mode. TIP: There are twitch responses of the arrow keys for turning the car while racing. Be aware of this if you play in a different view mode.KEYBOARD SHORT CUTSLearn the keyboard short cuts so you can perform many actions at once. It’sessential to multitask for optimal performance.Kick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 10
  10. 10. INVEST IN A STEERING WHEELFerrari Universal 5-in-1 TopDrive GT Wheel w/ Logitech G27 Racing Challenge Wheel Pedals Wheel List Price: $34.99 List Price: $69.99 List Price: 299.99 Save up to 18% on Amazon. Save up to 20% on Amazon.MASTER THE TRACKAmong beginners, a common problem is that they don’t know the racetracks.Being new gives you a disadvantage when compared to players who haveplayed for days, months or even years. An experienced racer can simplyoutdrive you by knowing what’s ahead.An essential skill to have is knowledge of the race tracks. This is achievedby memorizing the terrain and turns. The more you race the better you’llknow the tracks. This will give you an advantage over other players.MASTER YOUR SHIFTINGWhen it comes to shifting, you want to watch your tachometer. Don’t relyon speed as it can be an inaccurate indicator. Each car is different. Thisbecomes more challenging as chips are added and upgrades are made.Kick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 11
  11. 11. ADVANCED TECHNIQUE TO SHIFTINGLearn the engine sound your car makes that dictates the best shifting point.After a little practice it will become second nature.You’ll soon learn that shifting by the sound of your car’s engine will comenaturally with minimal efforts. And this will be a tremendous help if the gameglitches and you can’t see your tachometer during the race!MASTER DRAFTINGImprove your racing pole positions by learning how to draft effectively.Drafting is when you follow the car in front of you closely. You are using theirtrailing wind to gain speed.Stay just behind the car in front of you to help you avoid using unnecessaryturbo use. You’ll also put yourself in position to slingshot in front of youropponent.Benefits of drafting:  Avoid using extra turbo  Increase or refill to your nitro levels  Use less gasIf you draft as much as you can, you could keep your nitro levels full theentire race.For a more complete look at drafting, read How NASCAR Drafting Works.Kick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 12
  12. 12. MASTER CORNERING Entering corners at the correct place is called the ideal entry point. By knowing how to enter the turn at the right time and location you’ll master cornering quickly. Look at the diagram to the left and you’ll see how to enter a turn at the best place. Racing comes down to cornering. You want to sustainthe highest speed possible when turning to maintain speed and lower yourlap times. Veer slightly to the left before making a right turn and youcan maintain higher speeds. The opposite is true for making a left turn.The straighter your lines the faster you’ll exit the turn, while other driversneed to slow down. This will give you a significant edge over yourcompetition.For a complete cornering tutorial, read A Rational Approach to Racing GameTrack Design.MASTER BRAKINGWhen you are entering a moderate turn use your standard brakes. Only useyour brakes slightly until the middle of the corner. As soon as you hit themiddle point hit your gas pedal. You’ll straighten out the car quickly. TIP: Go slow on slow corners and fast on fast corners.Kick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 13
  13. 13. Avoid using the brakes when it’s a light turn. You’ll learn when to use yourbrakes and when they are not necessary when you learn the tracks.Some drivers will drive very fast and crash on purpose. They say it helpsmaintain high speeds and gets them ahead of their competition.We think it’s more important to learn how to drive to help with all aroundracing, instead of a quick fix that may or may not work.A Note on RammingYou will quickly earn a bad reputation. Not only will other drivers in thecommunity become your enemy, but ramming is a cheap way to win a race.The regulars will end up working together to block you and keep you fromwinning.There are some times when you’ll want to block your competition and mightneed to bump them out of the way. It’s okay to do this sometimes.You want to block on the last lap.A win is a win, but don’t make it a habit unless you love to play Sumo mode.Then you’ll need to ram as much as possible.Kick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 14
  14. 14. CHOOSE THE LION TO STARTNow that you understand the fundamentals of the game itself and how torace, you need to pick the best car.As a new racer your selection for racecars is limited. You’ll need the best carto help you win against other opponents. That’s why you need to choose theLion Executive Sedan.This is the absolute best starter car for winning races. IN GAME DESCRIPTION: A sedan with stable power and handling, aimed at beginners. But, tune it up to destroy the competition. GENERAL CAR INFORMATION: The Lion has well-rounded capabilities and performs great for inexperienced drivers. Top Speed: 116 mph Power: 140 horsepower Acceleration: 10.2 secondsUPGRADE CAR OFTENAt the beginning of the game you’ll only have a limited amount of money tospend on upgrading your car.Many new players make the mistake of saving their cash to spend on greatparts later.Don’t be one of them.The competition will be harsh as you enter races as a new inexperienceddriver. You’ll want to keep your car tuned and upgraded.So spend your resources and upgrade your car as often as possible.Kick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 15
  15. 15. Upgrades to help start out:  Stage 2 body  Stage 4 other items  No brakesLION TUNED UP STATS: With the right settings, the Lion is a “low class monster”and has been known to win against better cars. Top Speed: 127 mph Power: 163 horsepower Acceleration: 8.4 secondsMany times you’ll need to buy parts in succession so don’t think about savingto upgrade with the high level parts.Let us repeat. Upgrade often.IMPROVE ACCELERATION AND BOOST HORSEPOWERIt’s best to start with tuning up the transmission and the chip set in order toboost acceleration as much as possible.New racers are typically the last to leave the starting line as their cars havelimited acceleration power.With good acceleration you’ll be on a more even playing field with the otherplayers who are level 10 and lower.POWER UPGRADESUpgrade the power of your car for enhanced performance. TIP: Handling with the Lion improves with a steering wheel controller.Kick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 16
  16. 16. AVOID COSMETIC UPGRADESA common mistake made by rookie players is to “pimp” their car out. Don’tmake this error. You your game money wisely and you’ll gain an advantageover other new drivers.Tuning Tips:  ABSA – Find the right balance for you. You will get better brakes, but find you cannot gain speed as quickly through turns.  AESP – Helpful for long high speed races, but will stop you from drifting.  ASA – Don’t adjust.  DCS – Leave it at around 50%.  ECHS – Test and see what you think. Sometimes it will help your car turning abilities. You need to find the right setting for you.For more information on tuning, read HEAT Online Chip Tuning Guide.GET THE JUNK OUT OF THE TRUNKYou’ll need to ensure that a power-up is in your trunk before you start racingif you plan to use it during the race.However, a common mistake for new drivers is to load up the trunk thinkingthey’ll need something in a race and then not use it. TIP: Put a power-up in your trunk ONLY if you plan to use it.As each item has a limited amount it will be subtracted from the totalamount in your inventory whether you use it or not.Helpful Trunk Items for New Drivers:  Racing line  Oil enhancement – 10%Kick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 17
  17. 17.  NOS 2/3  Grip tires or drift pack (drifting is harder to earn RP as a beginner)EARN RP FASTERRace Points (RP) are the points you earn when racing. This money is thenused to customize your car and their performance. To improve your rankingsyou’ll need to earn RP fast! DID YOU KNOW? HEAT Online has been known to glitch and award massive amounts of RP/XP to players. Don’t expect this.WAYS TO EARN RP:RaceThe longer time you spend playing and racing the more RPs you’ll earn. Thesame is true with placing.In-Game TutorialsFollow Sylvi as she directs you through the important functions of playingand offers suggestions. You’ll be given a task to follow through with. Oncecompleted you are awarded RPs. FIRST TUTORIAL: After completing the first tutorial you are rewarded with a Cobra Coupe. That’s a level 42 car! And you’ll get 3 day grid girls! They’ll double your RP/XP for 3 days in every single mode. THIRD TUTORIAL: The third tutorial gives you a drift car for 3 days.There are also daily tasks, like the clean sector (every other day) that givesyou 10 each RP/XP 2x’s.Kick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 18
  18. 18. Collect Puzzle PiecesLook for puzzle pieces on the track. When you collect six puzzle pieces of thesame type you get a reward. Each time you’ll get a different item.Unlock MissionsThere are single player missions in the game that will reward you with newcars, in addition to RP.As there are a limited number of keys available when first starting out, youwant to unlock the first mission in each section.The best place to start unlocking missions is the yellow key practice missions.You’ll learn the tracks while earning.Once you complete a few of these tutorial missions, look for the red keytasks. For example, you might need to reach a certain speed limit on a Tokyotrack or jump a specific distance. These are the easier missions that mostbeginners are able to complete.Exploit Certain Game ModesChoose to race in the three modes that earn you the most RP when you race.These are Sumo, Capture the Flag and Explorers. We’ll go into more detail inthe next chapter.Get 3-Day CarsIf you have the funds you can rent cars for 3 days in Single Play. Since theseare higher class cars you get higher RP/XP bonuses. After it expires you canre-rent it. This goes for all cars up to class 5.Other ways to make RP:  Complete the Challenges  Buy Race Girls  Double UpKick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 19
  19. 19. START RACINGSUMOBump your opponents off the platform to score points. The racer with themost points wins. This is a fun and easy way to learn the tracks and your car’shandling. The bonus of earning a lot of RP makes it even better.CAPTURE THE FLAGTake the flag and maintain control of it as you drive through the gates. You’llalso need to protect your own base as the other team will steal the flag anddrive through. TIP: Watch your mini-map. You’ll see where the flag carrier is going to go. And you can decide what to do to fake out the competition.If you’re playing Team Capture the Flag, you need to work together as ateam. If a team member gets the flag first, immediately look to your mini-map to decide on the fastest opponent car. Now it’s your job to block himfrom reaching your teammate.EXPLORERExplorer can last for up to an hour. You’ll make at least 15,000 RP. Keep aneye out for surprise items and upgrades in addition to red, blue and greencoins scattered on the track.Basically you are racking up on miles and grabbing random items whilecruising around the track.Some new players make the mistake of starting a room and leaving theircomputer expecting a huge payout. The game is smarter than this.Kick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 20
  20. 20. TIP: Ensure you move your car every few minutes, perhaps between surfing the internet and checking your email. You can earn BIG!Compete against class 1 cars for an advantage. You’ll also want to pass onthe left, draft whenever possible, and block on the final lap.OTHER GAME MODESIn the beginning it’s best to avoid playing in Drift, VS, and TA (Thunder Alley)because you’ll make NO RP. RP is essential to winning.But after you start winning and upgrade your car you can head into the othergame modes with a better chance of winning.VSA more traditional mode, this is pure driving competition as you race oncircuit tracks against up to 7 other drivers. The fastest car wins.DriftIf you’re looking to slide your car around corners this is the game mode foryou. The longer the drift and the higher the speed you perform the drift you’llearn more drift points.Thunder Alley (TA) – Thunder Alley is only accessible to players who reachlevel 15. Once you reach it, get the Economic Engine, -30%, and add +5%octane. You’ll extend fuel consumption for a few laps. Oval race tracksdepend on your pit strategy.Tips for Thunder Alley racing:  Pass on the inside  Follow the optimal racing line  Hug the inside of the curvesKick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 21
  21. 21. Pass on the insideThis is courtesy and expected in this game mode. As drafting is common,other drivers will use the reduced air resistance path behind a lead car andslingshot around them into the lead.It’s polite to allow racers to pass on the inside. If you notice you are beingpassed move slightly to the outside and allow it.Follow the optimal racing line and hug curves.You want the best race line to keep your speeds up. Hug the inside of curvesand release your steering wheel grip as you near the end of the turn. Yourcar will naturally veer to the outside wall, let it.This type of driving allows you to get higher speeds throughout the race asyou are following a straighter path.Filling the tank and pittingThe fuel gauge is representing actual fuel. Thus, fuel management isextremely important in Thunder Alley. To increase fuel and maintain anadvantage over other drivers keep your tank only as full as you need it. TIP: Helpful trunk items include fuel 30% and engine 20%. These two items will help you extend your fuel tank.If you don’t have to fill your tank to 100%, don’t. If you are racing 40 laps youcan usually get 17/18 laps out of the initial full tank. TIP: Crash into a wall close to the electronic billboard reading “pit speed 55 mph” to drop from 180 mph as quickly as possible. You need to avoid drive through penalties.If you have to pit twice, fill the tank to 5/8 full each time to maximize yourcars’ effectiveness and keep your lead. In this example you’ll want to pit onKick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 22

  23. 23. STILL NOT WINNING?Now that you’ve learned the exact process you need to take in order tobecome a master HEAT Online racer, we want you to go over the top threethings that may happen to you when you’re trying to follow these steps.These are the two most common hang ups that stop beginner drivers fromwinning races, and here’s how you can overcome them:HANG-UP #1: FEELING OVERWHELMEDAre you finding yourself feeling overwhelmed by trying to learn all of the differentrace tracks and game modes?Sometimes it can be frustrating to try to learn all of these brand new maps atonce, especially if you’re jumping around in the different game modes.If you find yourself experiencing this, don’t worry. It happens to most newplayers.SOLUTION #1You need to focus on one game mode and only one. You want to play thesame game mode to become more familiar with it.Play as often as it takes for you to feel like you know it like the back of yourhand.HANG-UP #2: ENTERING CORNER TOO FAST AND SLIDING OUTAre you finding you are entering corners too fast? Is this happening moreoften than you think it should?When you enter turns fast you can drift out of control and lose speed. Thiscan allow your competition to get in front of you and cost you the race.Kick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 24
  24. 24. SOLUTION #2Try this technique to see if it works for you. When you find yourself enteringa turn at too fast a speed, for example a right turn, turn your wheel to theleft.This might sound strange and the wrong thing to do, but try it. It usuallyworks just fine and helps you maintain control of your car.You will notice that you lose some speed, but you’ll learn how to corner byfollowing the “Master Cornering” section in this ebook. This is just a way tonot lose complete control.Another common turning obstacle is overcompensating. Adjust your cargently instead.Kick ASS and Take Names Page ProjectTorque.com 25
