Yeah they are targetting the half-serious racing folk I guess, and trying to sell on sound & looks more than physics. 
Having said that, I have not driven it for a long while now, so they might have changed things.

And they had(have I guess) the point-to-point road tracks, that were a big plus for me - I love those for some reason.  If it had traffic, too, I'd be in heaven :)

I love driving like an ass in traffic - but sadly TDU/TDU2 were not really up to scratch.  Still wasted many an hour on them, hehe.

Sorry, this was actually Dick's post but I've messed up. I thought I can move the post here with the split-topic option, but alas no.

That sure looks sexy Rolz!!
better be on PC though.

Just like AC it's lacking crash physics. Not important?  I think it adds so much realism.
Seeing bits of car fly off is what i want to see.

I know, I'm dreaming. But for me it pretty much make all of these just games. Not sims. harsh i know.

You could buy in when it was Alpha. ;)
I'm in the same boat as Bird, I haven't driven it for a while as the physics weren't very good last time I did. :-\

I'm like Bird and several others. Looks pretty, but I gave up on the physics a long time ago. But I also haven't tried it for ages. I got a refund (in theory). I requested it, but I don't think they ever paid it.

I have the latest Steam version, and believe me it has come a long way since the earlier versions.  Dave O.

I've now downloaded it, but haven't had a chance to try it, yet.   It'll probably be a friday test at best.
