HA! That made me laugh.

With regards to the physics: this new game needs suspension and lateral movement while under g's. Taking a Jetta around a corner at 80mph has a different feel to it than a Lotus would around the same corner at the same speed. I felt RR2 was an amazing game, especially considering what was available at the time with regards to competition in the marketplace, but to take it to the next level, the physics definitely need to be addressed. The only difference between the entry and mid level vehicles and the top of the line sports cars is the speed. Handling, cornering, etc were similar across all cars, only showing differences when the high end cars reached their speed thresholds. Suspension is everything in a racing game touting realistic physics, and it was severely lacking in RR2.

Well at least one other person agrees with me.

Leotard: : a close-fitting one-piece garment worn especially by dancers, acrobats, and aerialists; also : tights often used in plural. Still impolite, but not calling you a "retard".

RR2 is fine for me for the most part, just didn't like the crash physics and how drifting slowed you down like crazy. Everything else is fine.

I agree with you completely. The game still kicked ass though, and Mr. Leotard does make some good points, but yeah.

Drifting does slow you down like crazy in real life.
In Formula 1 as an extreme example, a slight drift in a corner will cost a car pole position or track position in the race.
RR2 attempted to replicate that.

In relation to physics for this, as the physics in NFSMW are very good and substantially more realistic and entertaining (despite the inclusion of high speed drifting, NFS is arcade after all), its very safe to assume that this will be even better.

Exactly.

Something some of you don't seem to understand, is this is a simulation of real life. when you're driving the cars in this game with the tires and builds they supposedly have, at the supposed high speeds you're driving at, it does not handle like a WRX with a pimped out rally build.

I agree with rip. Try braking just a little late in saloon racing and you end up in the gravel. And rip I assume we were just trading friendly barbs.
