    Fantastic pack, but the Aston is not a GT3 car. Can we not have a separate GT2/E class for it and the M3 GT2?

    To those with a problem with the lack of pits on Mojave you can simply hit restart session in a free practice and you can change settings this way, no harder than simply hitting return to pit box on a normal track

    Overall a good fun pack, the cars are great and the test track has loads of potential but I do have a couple of dissapointments with it:

    Why can't you do a free-roam around the test track online, this would be so good for drifting/gymkhana/tag/chase/hide-and-seek sort of games that would add another level to the game for many?
    Why can't we run the drag strip online? (I know you can do it backwards on one of the layouts, and its lots of fun but its a faffy workaround that should not be needed)
    Why can't we run the full oval online, people have been calling for Ovals since launch and now we have something similar but we can only play it in single player?

    Is there any technical reason why any (or all) of the above can't be achieved? it feels like a really good location and it could be a big hit for the game but it could have been so much better given the above!

    Edit: For clarity I am not proposing that SMS spend time implementing tag/chase/drift modes or anything of the sort, this is exactly the sort of thing that the community can (and already do) create given an environment that would allow it, in reality all I would want to see implemented is the ability to setup a lobby with free roam enabled and driving backwards checks disabled (as these would be nonsensical in a free roam environment). A drag mode would be cool as well but wouldn't be vital in my eyes as that is a lot more work and there are easy ways to get around this if you have a bunch of people you want to play with

    It's probably worth pointing out that the new track cannot be used online.

    There are lots of layouts that can be used online, just not the one which I think most would be interested in (free roam)

    How can a car be free if it is only available in an expansion pack that is NOT free of charge?
