Dragster 5.61 Compilation

The video shows 16 “5.61” runs with different shifting patterns. I’ve included the shifting analysis below. The times shown are when I entered that gear. The clutch was hit on the previous frame.

Over the last two years I’ve played Dragster over 100 hours. I would estimate over 40,000 runs and hit 5.61 at least 150 times. Still working on that 5.57.

    Looking at the data, you have to hit that start!

    150 times and no 5.57 !!!

    Great video, and kudos to you for always sharing your tips and tricks

    Thats why you are a champion!

    Outstanding compilation, and great motivation. My 5.64 dupe count is reaching near your 5.61 count.. I wonder where I'm going "wrong."

    Hello Greg,

    Great runs! It's clear you've put a lot of time and effort into this game.

    Unfortunately, the strategy you use will not let you get a 5.57. I don't think there are any possible input combinations that would allow you to hit 5.57 without releasing gas for shifts 2 and 3, or holding the clutch at the finish. The timing for the remaining shifts will also need to be adjusted a bit, since I think you've pretty well set your muscle memory for particular frame counter seeds.

    If you want to nab that 5.57, I recommend fiddling around with my spreadsheet to understand some of the math at work. From there you can devise your own strategy, or you could even try following the one I worked out for a human-oriented 5.57 described in the videos Damien posted.

    Good luck!

    I don't play this game.

    Greg says that he has hit 5.61 approximately 150 times.

    Theories suggest that a 5.57 is possible and I keep hearing people pushing the theory.

    As far as I'm concerned, if Greg has hit 5.61 as his ultimate MAX on this game, then that IS the MAX on this game.

    That's absolutely proof enough for me.

    I'm a Todd "fan", you kinda know that. That likely won't change.
    But I believe in Greg's abilities, a LOT!
    I want to believe in the .51, because I want to believe that anything is possible.

    If I am being honest-my hope is waning.
    No matter what, I will always wonder, but if Greg can't do it, it is hard to believe anyone can.

    The main reason I commented...

    Wow.
    I already love you, Buddy, but my respect is even doubled, you showing that much support for another serious #1 Guy, because you know how legit he is.
    Awesome, Man.
    (Greg has never, to my knowledge, stated that anything faster than his score is impossible, BTW, tho I think he winks and grins when I say I am gonna try!).

    Greg I just wanted to say, your videos have helped me alot. Even Todd has respect for your skills as he was the one who directed me to them. In my mind you are a legend when it comes to Dragster. If 5.51 was possible you should have had it long ago. Although...no one had a 5.57 until recently. Like Rogerpoco said I'm a big Todd supporter myself, and hope he is right. Only time will tell. Thanks for your dedication and videos.
