I'm in Andy, probably try the Alfa, but may look for something American to go with the Track.

EDIT: Gotta go with the yankee theme, so I'll try the Mustang, never driven it before but looks rather nice.

hmm..i tried a night race. Its not so dark i can easily drive without headlights, but the fps - mainly at start - drastically dropped.

Try decreasing the settings for the headlight effects (in the video settings). These have a very big impact on performance. It's all the headlights and the effects and shadows they produce that take a big hit on your performance if you don't have a mid-high end machine.

Ben, I tried a few laps using both cars and the Falcon seemed quite a bit faster. I'm going with the Mustang purely because it looks so cool, I don't care if it's slower. Winning isn't everything. :wink:

Nah Ben, can't be too good a time, even I managed a 2.02.6 with my brief test session with the Falcon (all of 3 laps). :D :evil:

Stop practicing, I can't do those times in the Mustang.

Oh blimey, I need more practice. Fastest I've managed to fling the Cortina round in has been 2.05.3xx. That worked up a sweat I can tell you:fear:

providing my l'il handbrake doesn't dig her heels in too much about me racing.

if so i'll take a 'stang,i find they are equal to the falcon with a good set-up.
