Choosing a Car

Description

This is more than likely one of the most fun things about WMMT5 for a lot of people; the feeling of owning, modifying, and driving your favourite car. When you're a new player, any car will do to start off with. But there's a couple of things you should consider when choosing your first car.

1. Some cars have no dress up parts available:

This can be a big point of contention for some people because as mentioned above, modifying and personalising your car is something a lot of players value. Below is a list of cars in the International version of WMMT5 that currently have limited or no dress up available.

Audi R8 Coupe 5.2 FSI quattro
Audi RS4 Avant (B8)

2. Some cars are more beginner friendly than others:

Every car in the game falls into a certain category when it comes to specific performance and how difficult the car is to drive. While I would encourage you to make your favourite car regardless of in-game performance, it can be useful to know generally what your car excels at and what it struggles at.

Highly Reccomended: These cars are the easiest cars in the game to drive, and they will serve as a good introduction to WMMT while learning fundamental skills

Wait...How does 7 gears work?
Description

As a beginner who is tuning or is not familiar with arcade racers, you are not at a significant disadvantage if you learn how to play in automatic transmission to start off with. You might even be at a slight advantage when compared to those who rush into manual transmission and don't know how to use it, as they are prone to drive slower, make more mistakes, and not recover from those mistakes as quickly.

If you feel more comfortable using automatic to begin with, don't hesitate as you can always change your car to Manual or Automatic in the car info page or at the Wangan Terminal.

Gear differences in cars

Cars in WMMT can have 4, 5, 6, or even 7 gears.

Generally, 6 and 7 gear cars are advantageous in battle due to the extra speed ranges available with the extra gear over 5 or 4 gear cars.

5 gear cars are fine, but in certain situations it can be disadvantaged by having to go down a gear which is longer in speed range then the same gear on a 6 or 7 gear car, and the lower revs mean your car picks up slower.

4 gear cars are quite often a disadvantage due to the same reasons above, but worse still since 3rd gear on a 4 gear car is your main gear, while 2nd is almost always too short to go down to if you need to recover from a crash, and 1st is basically useless.

This doesn't mean that all 4 gears cars are bad, and that you shouldn't choose them. But if you're aware of the pros and cons, you can work around them. 

Wait...How does 7 gears work?

WMMT5 7MT

7 gear cars are essentially the same as 6 gear cars in how they function. The only difference as seen in the image above is that 1st gear is deleted entirely, and is labelled as 2nd gear, and 2nd gear is labelled as 3rd gear, and so on.

There might be some slight differences in speed range between 6 and 7 gear cars, but this is yet to be tested.

WMMT 10th Anniversary Banapass
BanaPassport Information
Description
How do I get a Banapass?
Description

The Banapass system was designed to phase out traditional magnetic cards that deteriorated over time and only allowed a certain amount of info to be stored on there.

The BanaPassports  work using Near Field Communication (NFC) which allow the card to be scanned and to look up your car data on a an offsite server.

The Banapassports are different from the old magnetic cards in that they don't hold any actual data, only your login details which are verified and used to look up your car data.

How do I get a Banapass?

There are two ways to purchase a banapass:

1. Wangan Terminal:
WMMT5 Terminal Unit
Every set of WMMT5 machines come with a Wangan Terminal. This allows players to scan their Banapasses and change settings on their vehicles and move vehicles around for use on the game.
