Throttle Control

Question

I keep seeing you guys bring this up from time to time, talking about throttle control and gears as if we're driving real vehicles. What are you talking about?

Quite literally, the pressure on the left thumbstick. In some competitive maps, most of them being Supercross, there are sections of the track not meant to be taken full speed (whiskey throttled). Instead, all or parts of these sections require you to let off of the left thumbstick (throttle) in order to safely traverse a line. It's typical that some sort of time-related penalty would be associated with failing to dial back on the throttle (flipping, stalling, etc).

I have a portion of Miquian that demands throttle control. It's the part just below the step down, and before the berm. If you go too fast over the lip, you are thrown off the track, flipped, or both. If, however, you slow down before taking off, you'll land safely on the other side and are allowed to continue the race without hindrance.
