Improve Car Control

Postby Elotion on Sat Nov 25, 2017 1:56 pm

Hey guys,
I have a huge problem in my opinion. My brain just doesn't want to improve while flying backwards. Every time I want to freestyle or just even hit a ball backwards I am not able to do that.
I guess the "problem" is my brain, because If I have to rotate left to hit the ball, my brain automatically pulls the stick to the left but I am flying backwards so I should need to pull it to the right.

Do you guys have an idea how I can improve this kind of "reversed thinking"? I dont even know how to search for general trainings because I dont know how I should call it. Is it "reverse thinking" ? Or is there a specific name for this?

I really would love to read some answers.
Thanks for the attention

The only way I can think to improve this is to practice it. Trust me, you will reach a point where it feels almost natural. It could take an hour, it could take 100. GL

And it could take never! Been playing since 2009 (sporadically) and to this day, I cannot pull off reverse aerials. Sometimes I do surprise myself when the situation calls for it, but I cannot simply do it on command. Just keep at it, but don't get worked up over it

There's nothing else than practice. Although you will need to keep up such a skill slightly once you master it to keep it at that level.

If he can learn this, however long it takes, you can learn how to backwards aerial haha.

If you screw around in private matches, and actually play "backwards matches", it will really help you.
In addition to teaching you reverse aerials, it will also get to to stop worrying about "the front of the car" and the "back of the car".
You'll find yourself going straight at stuff backwards, in normal games, when that is the most efficient way to play the ball.

If you turn perma-boost on in your private matches that will let you go up for anything backwards, without having to worry about having enough boost.
Just make sure you also practice without the 100% boost because you'll get too dependent on it, if that's all you do.
Some of the people I play with are incredible at backwards stuff now, after practicing it so much.
