The car feels more controllable in quali, race mode feels seems to see-saw between sluggish and too responsive. But maybe I just need more practise...


I don't think there's anything in the code that varys the car handling between qualifying and race. I suspect that the frame rate is a little lower during the race session (due to the higher number of cars being moved around the track) and that this has an effect on how the car feels to drive. If this is the case, you'd notice the car handling becoming more volatile in the later laps of the race session when up to 8 (I think) CPU cars are being moved around.

I just tried the new version quickly and it's great! And I haven't yet even tried it with sound (as my speakers are currently otherwise occupied). :-)
