perhaps Steam could be brought in to come up with a way so that the user has to 'allow' the download. Pushing updates ensures everyone are all on the same version, but it does create havoc. I'm guessing there are some kind of logs that show how many people log on with rF2 and at what times. That could reveal a hole when 'most' users are not running. @Iagg, you may not race on weekends, but you can bet there are plenty of weekend leagues and casual pick-up racers using the free time on the weekend to race. What works for one, rarely works for all.
