Nice, the extra 10% increase in FPS for single GPU should see me get a constant 60 fps, some tracks would dip to 50 in some areas.

Players can purchase the Legends pack for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace or $9.99 on the PlayStation® Network.

Featured in the Legends pack are 14 classic cars:

Get the reduced trackside objects mod if you do, silverstone etc looked retarded before i installed it with tents and lot of crap that's not present in reality. i'm also running a handling mod, still not great but better than shift 1. It's fun though and it looks pretty ok.

Soory it took me so long Slawter.I re-installed 270.51 re-ran the patch and the game is totally different now.The handling is MUCH improved,drift can be played now either with 360 pad or g25,and SLI works with NO flickering.I gonna have a little fun with this on the weekend.(supposed to rain all weekend here)I find the game a lot like shift1 with better handling.

I'm still messing around with the wheel settings. Got the deadzone/sensitivity pretty good now. The game still has a bit of an indirect or slow input response but I guess that's just how it is. Shift felt similar. Due to the not so great FFB and steering, there is still a lot of guesswork going on while trying to hit the apex but I'm having fun with it.

Try this mod when you get the chance, works really well imo:

It’s just a question of personal preference.

Extract the two .bff files from this archive, and place them in Pakfiles folder in your shift install. Backup your two original files before.
