Has anyone else found that the Mk1 Escort is totally undriveable.....I've driven it a few times but everytime another car so much as touches the Escort it flips onto its side.....one time it jumped completely in the air, smashing it to pieces and loosing me a ton of time....such a shame as I love the Escort.:(

Let your tyres warm up. Also, tune it. Every single car is driveable. Tis not a bug, cheers!

The collision issue has been noted as a problem and has had some changes made which will hopefully appear in an update soon.

My mark 1 Escort was never that twitchy unless it had been raining, then I would have preferred the one we have.

Without wanting to sound like an idiot, you need some patience and persistence with some of the cars in this game, they take a bit of getting used to.

@PinkLepes

In real life I used to race a Mini (Front Wheel Drive) then I changed to an Escort MK1 (Rear Wheel Drive) Totally different handling.

The back end on rear wheel drive cars always tend to step out.
Example: On a wet or icy road when you feel the backend start to go you to steer into the slide (Opposite Lock)
while gently feeding in some power to pull the backend back around and not touching the brakes.
If you hit the brakes you'll go further into the slide as the brakes will lock the wheels in the position that your turning.

Even in Project Cars it takes some practice and patience to handle them.

Rear wheel drive cars when at speed going into a bend will always want to try and step out.
Therefore you have to try and keep the car balanced.
Getting your braking point right and try to get through the bend in the straightest line possible.

Remember. Slower into a bend you will come out faster. Fast into a bend you will come out slower.

Check out my video racing the Escort Mk1 in Project Cars. - I am also only using an Xbox Controller.

Yes, exactly the same !!

I stopped my session after qualifying as I was too tired to continue. My next session started my career race where I left off on the starting grid. I have tried so many times now but every time I get hit by AI my car rolls. It is frustrating and I now wish I could just get through this, I drive as cleanly as possible. Must say other than that I have the biggest smile on my face, no other game has provided that experience.

Hi. Pinklepies. Were interested in using the following clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFgGbAkp5rU&feature=player_detailpage#t=74 in an upcoming BBC motoring show. Can you drop me an email on bbccarclips@gmail.com to discuss licensing ?
