    I'm not 100% sure I'll get there in time. Another birthday damn it. So not sure if I'm really worthy of a point of view but I'd love to run the new vintage cars on one of the historic layouts. Had a cracker last night at historic jacurapagua. Ill run anything anywhere though so up to the others really.

    I think different track would be a good choice.

    I know it was my first time out with 1.0, and I really don't like this track :).

    I think there is something buggy going on with the walls. (not just me smacking into them uncontrollably :) ). If you get too close to the walls, it will literally suck the car into them. It happened to me a couple of times in my short stint A couple of times looking at the replay I really couldn't tell if I steered that way or what, but the last one convinced me there is something going on.

    Out of the final turn going into the straight, I got within a couple of inches of the wall to the left, and the car lurched towards the wall. Clipped into the wall a bit and then the car hit a "corner" of a wall while clipped and wrecked me. I think it is something worthy of a bug report to Reiza. Probably should get a video to show you what I mean.

    The wall sucking happened in a couple of places around the track so it isn't just in one spot.

    Happy to race anything anywhere.... In saying that, the vintage car and track combo we played with very briefly last night was interesting....

    Fred, re "Wall Sucking", I have experienced that as well. Figured something on the car had snagged the wall.

    Sam, Had a go at Jac historic with the '67. Fun track for sliding. Have a look at Jo'burg historic, I think it suits the classic as well.

    It's the curbs next to the wall. Their tiny, but the car rides them and that shifts the weight to the other side, so the car feels like it's turning in.
