I'm having a good old time with all the mods and my new Zonda-R. This was my first test drive of the car, very fun

Does shift support track ir? I bulit a 3-point infared led hat clip and have been playing dirt and grid with track IR or rather freetrack and it works awesome.I was wondering if it is a supported game cause it wont work correctly yet.

Not natively but you might be able to "bind" the view keys (arrow keys on the numpad) to trackir and use it that way but obviously its not as good as native support.

I love the game but I think this aggressive portion of it is ridiculous and should be scraped in the next patch, along with the all too aggressive AI.

I think you'd have to be trading paint half the race to even have a chance of getting more aggressive points than precision ones. And all I see online are people's precision profiles anyway.

So, does anyone actually have an aggressive one?
Damn, so what you're telling me is my level 17 precision profile isn't anything special? I think that the game also considers several non-combative things as aggressive, such as drafting and blocking (stopping opponents behind from passing). I would say that from a purely driving perspective, precision is the most natural profile type to get as you just race... perhaps aggressive profiles will show up once people have completed the game and start to go through again.

Here is a good listen in regards to the arcade/sim aspect, development, bugs/glitches and another patch coming soon and some DLC. Patch coming with tweaks and fixes to cars and tracks and lots of DLC$ with cars and tracks. I personally hope they do tweak and fix it and lean more towards the sim side can't be both.

I can't seem to apply the patch.. Seems the only solution is to reinstall the game. Oh why did I delete the installation files? ****ing ea download manager.

I'm not really that impressed with the graphics in the game, am I the only one?

Can't put my finger on what it is, I think it's the world textures. I think they are too low for PC standards. I mean my 3 year old G80 can play it just fine. Which I'm happy with, but it doesn't look real enough.
