    This game is a BLAST.... it is fun to blow off steam after you get wrecked in iRacing to go to this game and just cause HAVOC...If you have not tried it, go get it you will enjoy it... once they get some more cars it might take quite a bit of my time..hehe..The Physics are AMAZING...

    Cheers

    Oh yea, its a great pick up and play game just to have fun. My only complaint so far is the performance. I know its still an alpha or beta, and its probably related to all of the particles and physics going on but framerates really take a beating early in a race or derby when there's a lot of cars on screen. Even in a very high end PC like mine, my framerates start off well above 60fps and drop to around 30-40fps in the beginning of every event and then gradually go back up to 60+ again within a minutes or two after some of the on screen action has calmed down.

    What sort of spec are you running? I'm thinking of getting this but maybe not if I'm going to struggle?

    i5(3.4)
    8GB DDR3
    Win7
    GTX660OC

    Intel i5 2500k @ 4.4GHz
    16GB of DDR3 at 2133MHz
    Win 7
    Two GTX 780's @ 1202MHz

    SLI isn't working yet in this game so I'm only using one 780. I'm not sure what resolution you're running but I'm running it at 2560x1600 which is pretty high for a single display and much more demanding if you're running a lower resolution than I am.

    The game is short on content but what it has is fun. There's really nothing else like it out there I know of. It reminds me a lot of Destruction Derby for the original Playstation, only this game looks very modern with all the effects. There's particles everywhere, tire stacks that break up into flying tires, concrete barriers that break into pieces when you hit them, car body parts that break off as you hit them, and whatever else you can destroy, there's also dirt and smoke, and the physics feel good with a wheel or 360 controller. I've played it with both. FFB works with a wheel but I'm not getting any rumble using a 360 controller at the moment.

    I only run at 1080p so hopefully it'll run OK. The 660 is running at 1086 (ish)

    You will likely get some slowdown in the early parts of a race or derby just like the rest of us but it starts to pick up after a minute or two and I'm willing to live with the brief moments of slow down for now since this game isn't a final product. It doesn't really detract from the fun of it.

    Thanks @Michael Hornbuckle for the vid.

    That looks really good. Was that with wheel? If so how is it, with ffb, precision, dead zone etc? That's my only concern, everything else I'm sure Bugbear can pull through.

    Using a 360 controller in chase view. Haven't tried it with the G27 in cockpit view yet.

    The racing is fun, but I think the derbies may be even more fun. Try the large arena with the small Euro car. It's a lot of fun trying to survive that madness.

    This could be the best consistent arcade game not only in this year.
    Demanding driving model, amazing damages and some cruelty factor is going to be perfect mix. Wheel (TC and antispin on!) and maxed settings in race shortcut.

    How did you get the track to run that direction?

    It works good with a wheel, the car handling is definitely arcade but, I don't notice dead-zone or other steering issues. The game-play is fun and the crash physics are great entertainment.
