Handles great by Dirt 2 standards, way faster than the default truck, and definitely worth the money in my eyes

The water is nice, Is it a lot better in dx11?

The splashes look purposely dulled and flat in dx9...

No, It choose 1600x1200 for me as default and stuck to it.

It wont load from the steam games list shortcut though, I have to run the .exe ???
