    Sorry if these kind of threads are discouraged, but this move has always been my Impossible Dream due to how extremely situational it is and how easy it is to tech (because why wouldn't you be teching forward against wolf).

    But I finally did it, and I could just about cry. It was a really terrible round (I was blocking a lot to try and get used to yutori) and a terrible match even, but none of that could stop me from saving this replay.

    congrats man! don't stop there - what's the next goal?

    as a tip, you can force your opponent to not break forward by using back throw. if they're not adapting, they're handing you the game.

    Burning driver is a backthrow and therefore inescapable. Doing double evades on some of the opponents strings might get you there. Anyway, landing that on someone feels awesome, so congrats.

    It is indeed a great achievement landing that back throw. Congrats.
    Also If you fight Kage, remmeber that [3][K][+][G] is -19 and leaves kage back turned. That's the perfect situation to use the burning driver as punishment and take that sweet 120 points away from that dirty ninja.

    another scenario where you can land that back throw is against aoi:
    When you do the ground throw [2][P][+][G] we are usually at +12 with the opponent back turned, meaning that everybody will take the quick shoulder [4][6][P]... everybody except aoi who can dodge even from back turned. But this is why the burning driver comes into play, because we can use this mighty throw to take that to our advantage. However it's not a garanteed option like double evading a string like Combolammas suggested.

    Keep up the good work with Wolf guys.

    I guess the next goal should just be actually getting good at the game! At this point I've landed every goofy situational thing I can think of between all the characters I play, including a ringout with El Blaze's rocket discharge low throw (which is probably a lot more unlikely than the burning driver, given all the advice posted in this thread for landing it).

    Huh. I guess the one time I thought somebody teched it they must've been in the animation for spinning around to face me or something. Good to know though, thanks.

    Can't stop until everybody knows that wrestling is the ultimate sport.

    at least you won the game afterward... it would be a shame to land that, then not win :D

    Good job man. I felt the same satisfaction when I hit Taka's [4][6][P][+][G] back throw. I should've saved the replay though!

    It feels so good landing this throw. I've done it a couple of times in a match, but literally could count on one hand.

    I remember the first time I was against an Aoi player who went into back-turned stance as I did the throw and ate the backturned. He actualled yelled out 'What the FUCK was that!?' when he saw the damage.

    The other I can remember was against a Brad player recently after a double evade of one of his long ass strings.

    EDIT: Also is Burning Driver only 10 frames as opposed to the usual 15? I thought it was faster. And can you input it via the F5 input as well?

    Burning Hammer and Burning Driver are 16 frames exectution. That's why it's so hard landing that back throw.
    Same with 6P+G with or without a wall, the exectution stays 9f, which is why 66p+k is good to pressure an opponent close to the wall.

    Oh, on his command list here it has Burning Driver listed as a 10 frame throw? I guess that's an error?

    Actually it is. I guess we have to report that. Thanks for pointing that out.

    So just to close out the most bizarre week, I actually managed to hit someone from behind with the deadly move grab in an actual match too, almost immediately after reading about a combo specific to that exact situation and saying out loud "Well that'll never happen." Actually hit the combo off it too.

    Kind of wish I could get to some kind of tournament now with all this bizarre setup luck.

    This thread got side tracked from one man's enjoyment of landing a rare move in game, to... well... personal attacks over mistakes and misunderstandings. So, if you can stomach the vitriol, then there's some useful discussion going on in the new thread Landing the Burning Driver.
