    Not for me! I for one have more fun shifting like lightning and push through entry of a Autobahn
    with 4 wheels driven perfectly through automatic system, than fiddling with this antiquated H-shifter-clutch-crap on a car that behaves like a stagecoach!
    And in your description I would call myself a "driving enthusiast".
    Never understood why many (most of the time older) people think modern cars have nothing to do with driving,
    or texts like "Thats true driving for real man...bla" ----------> BS! Thats dumb-driving for retarded.
    In a proper car there should be no need for shifting, a proper car should not base on techniques that are more than 100 years old!
    Cars - especially race-cars, are supposed to be a technical, innovating and scientific thing.
    Just my few Petro-Dollars :D

    As I said, it takes all the fun out of it. It's fun for a few days and then your bored and want your h box back. It isn't about the raw numbers. It's also about fun. I almost wonder if you have any real experience with an H box. I'm not talking about point a to b in traffic but really driving. I've driven an e46 SMG and a Nissan GTR and sure it's fun but it isn't the same. Call me old (only 38) and ignorant I guess.

    Cars are about technology, innovating and being FUN. You say you like all 4 wheels to have perfect traction through a turn. I would rather be the one controlling the traction with my foot and if I don't want traction I can do that too. Preferably RWD. I guess too many people grow up learning to drive with a game pad on a play station now. Too many parents force autos onto their kids because they think a manual is too much for kids to learn all at once. To many parents don't even know how to drive a manual themselves.

    Anyways. Rant over. BTT. Sorry.

    So you mean you want the car to do most of the driving?

    imo AC has more appeal as a car enthusiast game, speaking as someone who is more a car enthusiast than a driving one by (some) of these standards (havent learned technical stuff, none of it sticks, and i do enjoy flashy cars :D), although pCARS is probably second on PC. thats not a knock on either love both but i think AC specifically has gotten a lot of its popularity by going after that crowd.

    Wont call you old, as you are younger than me :)

    Mh, can´t observe this in Germany at least, although DSG´s are very popular here...
    Sorry all!! Now really BTT!

    This Platov is a very fun car, still I haven´t tested all versions.
    I remember years ago there where people who complained about lack of grip in rF2 and spread the misinformation that rF2´s physic-engine must obviously have a flaw..LOL!

    This has chaged dramatically in time, maybe about 1.5/2 years ago, when i drove at Sepang with a Formula-ISI, i had wheelspin up to 3rd gear in a straight line!
    When i had to catch a slide, countersteer->no reaction, more countersteer->no reaktion, more, still no reaction and instantly to much, and the rear swings around in the opposite direction (couldn't find here english transl. for german word "Konterschwung"). :)

    The Palatov D4 now (BTT) ;), when i do a slide here and open the steering, the car reacts a lot earlier and smoother on steering corrections than... - don't know - several bulids before!
    Also when it come's to a "Konterschwung" situation, it's a lot more controllable, better catchable and IMO more realistic. Could recognize this already with the Cobra.
    The overall griplevel already became better, about a year ago i think.
    Don't know how much of it is a result of new CPM, or maybe a somewhat smoother grip dropoff. :)
