At the end of the race, waaaay too much random sh*t flashing around. Gets annoying. I know they wanted to convey a sense of accomplishment, but this is a bit much.
There's a mod for that

THAT F*CKING VIPER VS FORD GT RACE IN TIER 2 IS F*CKING IMPOSSIBLE!!!! How the hell do you do that sh*t. The opponent passes me on the corners without braking >< I tried that race at least 20 times, all fail.

I've tried to beat it a couple times without unfair moves but its clear that the opponent is much faster in the 2nd race (if you win the first). Eventually was fed up with it so I pulled a dirty move (dive bombed him off the track) and it worked on the first try.

Is there any mod to save (and play) replays? Not that I'm a great driver or anything but sometimes I'm too tired to drive properly and just want to watch cars race around.

I have never been ahead after that uphill left hand turn that comes after the sweeping right turn. He always passes me there, because I have to brake, and he doesn't. So damn annoying. And I am not good at spinning the asshole out.

For me, the Real Mod crashes to the desktop with the new patch. I'm using Win7 x64 and Shift v1.02

I am guessing the murcielago is the best tier 3 car?

Not sure bob, is that the same class as the Zondas? They are another tier up no? I haven't played in a while ::

I think the Zondas are one more up.
Man, the first Veyron race is like a very expensive bumper-cars. The lambo has a SICK engine note.
