    If you mean, rather good, then that would be yes. though to tell the truth, i cant remember anything about the handling that i didnt like in the closed beta.
    Can you be more specific please?

    As for todays news, I bought the NEW hill climb and the Capri. Havent tried the course yet but the Zakspeed is nuts. I love it!

    Dude in the video has some skills! Glad to get these two new cars but I'm even more excited about all the other cars that have been greyed out these last few weeks. Any word on the Zonda, Ford GT1 etc? Those are what I really want. And they've been greyed out in game even before the M3 was announced!

    I really like the new hill-climb course - b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. I only tried the E30 but, drives great. I can't wait to try the Capri.

    Update: Okay - the Capri is a beast! The way you have to finesse the throttle as the turbo and the rpm's reach that certain point and then the power hits hard and the rear breaks loose - brilliant fun! It's nice and squirly under hard braking too - great job SimBin. Yes, I'll take more please!:)

    I sailed across the ocean with Columbus to discover the Americas. I landed on the moon with Armstrong. I've raced an E30 on Le Mans going backwards while the race was going forwards. If anyone knows what E30 sounds like, it's me. If it were anymore real the game would require you to sign a waiver so that you couldn't sue incase of your immenent injury.

    I will dare to say opinion about RRRE after driving Capri around Portimao in GetReal mode. Within driving it, I don´t need to shift with clutch, there is no need for heel/toe technic, I can brake with downshifting without fear to spin the car or destroy the engine, it is almost impossible to spin that turbo monster on curve exit ... and so one. I have driven this car in DRM mod and must say, that is completely different expirience and compared to AC (both games are in some sort of beta stage), it is pure arcade. I am maybe wrong and for sure very opened for different stands, but that`s my impression after 20+ hours of driving various RRRE cars.
    Cheers :).

    Here is a vid of the ''arcade'' Capri. After 1 lap of driving without the clutch the gearbox gets damaged and some gears refuse to work and goes into neutral with down shifting. Also the gear box begins to make noises. Finally its complete kaput.

    Great example of what I didn`t feel when I drove Capri on Portimao in (try before buy) GetReal mode. I will buy Bathurst and M3 to see, what was wrong with me (or with the game) yesterday. Tnx for the video and I hope, I didn`t hurt anybody`s feelings with my previous post :thumbsup:.

    You don't hurd anybody here.
    I can drive without the clutch and no damage. But when I do fast downshifting and use to high revs it gets damage. I also spin in the first 3 gears when I'm not carefull.
