    Turn race starts to manual and just keep restarting until you get it you have to hold (RT) and (A) and release (A) as soon as the red lights disappear.

    PJTierneyHave you got any advice on reducing your reaction time?

    Mine seems pretty good based on the starts I make in Multiplayer but I’m not quite at .16 seconds yet.

    Iggsy81u simply have to guess / anticipate. Just let go 2 seconds after the reds go out every time and eventually you'll get it. Took me about 5-10 mins.

    planchetflawGuy in front of me jumped the start on my second race (multilayer first). I thought I missed the start so released. Just luck for me.

    Roadwarrior142Do you need to have the revs lit at a certain speed too, or is it just a case of releasing the A button as quick as possible after the lights go out, as I'm having major issues trying to get the revs right and then releasing A?
