    A new preview video of the KZ2 CRG shifter kart coming soon to KartKraft is here!

    Set to arrive in this impressive kart racing simulation sometime within the next week, Australian development team Black Delta have released a nice preview video of the KZ2 CRG shifter kart in action around the recently released Atlanta Motorsports Park venue within the game. Check the video out HERE.

    Showcasing the new machine using the rather awesome helmet cam perspective, the new preview is certainly impressive - if not a little concerning for the driver, who seems to be performing feats of near superhuman strength driving one handed throughout the lap...

    Although we don't know exactly when the KZ2 CRG is set to arrive within the game, Black Delta suggest we could be getting our hands on these new karts as early as next week.. so stay tuned!


    KartKraft is available on Steam now.

    The sounds are a little bit weird when accelerating, otherwise, NICE

    Is it normal to constantly hold the shifter with a shifter kart?
    I have no idea and its something that I have never seen before so wondering

    No, it's not normal (I raced a lot shifter karts). They should fix that soon I guess. Looking forward to try it.

    No, its fast pumping or pulling, hands on the wheel.
    Strange. But the vid looks damn fine!

    Blimey! I actually thought the video started with some real live footage of the kart being driven then saw the fixed helmet on the lower right and realised it's ingame footage! Very impressed with how it looks, UE4? Might have to pick this up though i have never really bothered with karts before.

    So I guess no one else noticed the missing rad hoses in the OP pic, not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, just surprised it wasn't pointed out by some of the eagle eyed here at RD.

    Did a rake of overtime over the weekend so ive just bought it, £15.99 seems reasonable, Be interesting to see how this compares graphically and optimisation wise to ACC as it's UE4 :geek:

    Yes, I think i know that! I said graphics and optimisation ( How the game LOOKS and PERFORMS) Not vehicle physics! Cheers.

    I have both Kartkraft and ACC (from early access in both cases). KK looks fabulous plus low fps, compared to ACC. ACC however has since come on in leaps and bounds. But have no fears about the graphics of KK. Its great graphically. Also physics are good , even though i am a complete ass at driving karts, its a load of fun. Hope this help.

    I had a quick bash on it last night, Impressive, As dreamer al says it does look good and drives well, Had a request to allow access off Windows firewall, That's unusual, It just interrupted the game, I had to finally Ctrl/Alt/Tab out after 20 mins as my radeon drivers crashed and went to default settings, I get the same with ACC unless i load my ACC graphics profile which i forgot to do running Kartkraft, It appears UE4 doesn't like my usual on the limit O/C settings on my Vega56 so i had created a new one for ACC with a slightly reduced O/C and it fixed this problem, I'll try it when i next fire Kartkraft up and hopefully it will be Ok.
