It makes sense that you can make donuts with it then though it's little bizarre that the smoke is coming only from the front tires.
I've tried the demo and can't say I'm blown away. Sure the graphics are great but the gameplay is a little let down. It's still very arcady. Especially with the trucks where I couldn't even powerslide by simply turning in and smashing the gas and no rev rise when going sideways either. I just crawl to a halt till I face the direction of travel. Is there a way to turn off the traction control? Maybe if I tried it with a steering wheel it would be better.
Judging by the demo I can see this game for a casual player who just wants for a short blast. I think there would be lot of potential if they would make a good sim with this game engine but I think they won't bother with it.
I might get it for just fun driving and short blast now and then but I am not willing to pay 50-60€ for it but I am willing to wait till gets cheaper though that will probably take at least 5 years.<Stultum est timere quod vitare non potes>

I've had the chance to play it a little longer. My previous post was too negative I think. It isn't that bad if you don't think of this as a sim. I think it's somewhere between arcade-sim but more biased to the arcade side. Shame about it's price though and truck seriously feel underpowered when powersliding.<Stultum est timere quod vitare non potes>
