We have 3 days to vote to allow time for any of us who need to practice, to be ready for the next round. :)
Keeping in mind the "collision box" question.

I personally liked the first release of the MX 5.  It seems to have become much slower and more boring with the "fixes".

The Caterham was a lot of fun, just have to be careful about the collision box.  No doubt this will be fixed up though.  I have posted in their thread on the AC forums about the issue.

Agree that the MX-5 doesn't have a lively feel. I suspect that is how the real car drives however. I drove one briefly years ago and it had the same slightly lifeless feel. However, I was driving a BMW at the time which had wonderful steering feel. The Caterham felt great and fun compared to the Mazda. I would be OK with the collision box issue so long as Guybrush stays well clear of me :D :D

Anyhow, I am away...

sorry Denis, I will check the problem tonight, we are now using Gratulin's server as mine is no longer free/cheap.
it should be Caterham and Aosta Sport.
