Is it even possible to drive this thing without dying? If so, please tell me how o.o

Growlman, you have my sympathies. I tried this race at Oulton Park 6 times last night,and gave up in disgust at the AI physics.

It's one thing for the AI cars to drive lap speeds at 100% as if they were in the dry.

It's a complete game killer when the AI flips you.

Real world physics, that would never have happened with two cars.

DEVS - Please please please fix the AI so that ii is more realistic.

When the cars shunt you off the track - they still drive at full speed. You are effectively stopped dead.

If you nudge a car, competing for a space going into a corner, you are spun off.

If the AI nudge you - you are off quicker than you can blink.

A fantastic sim/game otherwise, but please fix this, as it is killing the enjoyment of it.

One thing I noticed is also how quick the Ai recover if they go off you'd expect them to be rejoining in your rear view mirror some distance back but no you soon find they are still right next to you! I had a GT4 race at Imola and an Aston Martin flew off at the first main turn into the gravel trap (which if you get caught in it it is like quicksand) but he simple kept going and rejoined just in front of me.

Now that is a basic driving error: missing the corner apex and then turning into a car that exploited it.

Well yeah, his driving sucks - but flipping the car over would never have happened.

Never tried the Escort. Is it worthy?

the escort is 1 of the worst handling cars i have ever used in any game. understeers straight on at most corners, then snaps to terrible oversteer, no progression to catch drifts with it. In all the escort is appalling!

Yeah I did a few races at Oulton in this too and any contact with the AI resulted in a flip! Proper frustrating!

I like the Escort. It drives very good, requires throttle control and smooth steering to keep the weight in balance. All of this can be felt very clearly through the FFB and also when using a controller. Don't give up on the little bugger, he deserves to be driven! :cool:

The Problem with flipping will be solved soon ;) The Collisionbox had received an Update to prevent it crawling high on other cars...

Good to hear because I love driving this car!
Seen it happen in other too!

You tried the mustang? It's worse!

You have my sympathies. I love the Escort... when I'm the only car on the track!

I have some videos in my post which you might find amusing (see link below). At least you can take heart that you're not the only one suffering with this.

I also got a response that the Escort's collision model will be fixed. I'm so pleased to hear this!

Try doing some testing and set-up work. You can get it handling much better. I agree it can be difficult with some tuning on certain tracks. I found it responds particularly well to tyre pressures adjustment. Try a little lower on the rear than on the front pressures. Next would be to play a little with spring rates. It's very rewarding when you make it handle better.

The first thing I did is went back to the pit and switch drivers, what a peice of a crap car, both in real life and in game :D

I hate the car too. I can drive it but I canīt have a race without spinning. Every time you have to counter steer you are afraid your are going to slightly overdo it and when you inevitably do you end up against a wall.

On the collision physics, this car is terrible I wonder how could you guys even dare launch the game with such horrendous physics. I managed to flip my car by going side by side with the AI. I was on a right turn on the inside, AI was on the outside, we barely touched each other and off I was on two wheels. The two RIGHT wheels of the car were on the floor and the left ones on the air ON A RIGHT TURN. How is that even possible? What is the physics box for this car a ramp?
