    Ive played the demo, and it feels a bit weird, especially compared to RBR - better than DiRT though.

    Looks good and the damage is good (you can injure the driver :p) so its maybe worth getting.

    I've had it a few months but have yet to play it. Need to find time. I love 4x4 Hummer for time wasting and I believe it's the same people which is why I got this one, but I have more games than time to play!! HAHA.

    Bought this, it is really fun and it is perfect for playing with keyboard, you don't need to use a wheel or a pad. I like it and it's only $5 on Steam

    Although (RS)RBR is THE game for me at the moment, I bought Xpand Rally a few weeks ago from Steam for a bit of change and because it was very cheap. Although it looks nice, I find it almost impossible to play. In some sharper turns my car goes only straight ahead even if I slow down before it to almost a standstill. Turning the steering wheel seems to do almost nothing.
    Although I am still a beginner I cannot imagine that this is the cause. In RBR I don't have any problems. I am not fast there but in most cases I can take all the turns relatively easy and not very slow.
    Has anyone an idea what could be wrong or what I might do wrong ?
