    Looks like the Cup physics were only slightly tweaked, the way the car seems to handle. It was god awful in NH:E, so that doesn't bode well. But who knows what exact settings he was using.

    I didn't like how they went from 194 on the straightaways to 179 in the corners at Daytona.

    Yeah... Imma take that article with a grain of salt.

    NO. And it tarnishes his take on this iteration IMO.

    As someone who never bothered playing the game, wasn't the driving model and the AI two of the worst parts of the game?

    YES. Driving model was absolutely horrid. I jacked up the car to the point where I couldn't get it any more loose and it was a chore to spin out, but anything less than an asinine setup would see you either having to over brake corners or run smack into the outside wall.
    The AI was a decent base point, but had a penchant for ignoring your location relative to them, i.e. they would crowd you a LOT or run you into the wall for no apparent reason whatsoever.

    The more I hear about it, the more cautiously optimistic I am getting... still want more intel on the career depth and some LEGIT game play (not some person who has no clue WTF their doing behind the wheel).

    I'm not sold on the gameplay. Same sound, spotter audio, handling.

    Yeah... the way it seems to drive, not heartening at all. Dude even slams another drivers QP and he barely budges. NOT good.
    No "Up top, 3 wide", just "still there still there" like thanks, dick, for nothing. Might as well have the damn radar from NTG.
    Cars sound like an angry bee swarm more than the rumble of race cars. Underwhelming would be putting it nicely.

    Once again though, it may just be the person playing has all the assists on, etc etc, but it really doesn't bode well for the game. I get they have to somewhat cater to novices to expand the marketability, but it's almost like they are catering to 6 year old's.

    IMO the game developers are geniuses. They know exactly what buttons to push to get us suckered in to buying their product. Adding some eye candy and the other two racing series doesn't make a good racing game. I will be waiting till Christmas when the price is $19.95

    The physics and car handling will never be up to par unless 704Games ditches the Unity engine, which means a rebuild year where you'll likely see another bare bones game. I get they are relatively underfunded when compared to most game developers, and I am glad they are trying to put in effort to create a good NASCAR game again, but you won't see somewhat decent handling like NTG:IL unless they do something drastic. If this is just an alpha build, great, but if not... they've got some work to do. I want them to keep making NASCAR games, because without them, we wouldn't even have a NASCAR game to complain about. Hopefully 704 hits their marks soon. Maybe I am speaking too dramatically too soon, though.
