Oh, I remember the good ol' day when the X2 could be bought for a hundred quid. If I paid that much it would make me very angry.

I finally got round to making a vid of the X2 problem. Checkout the spin out just before the first ramp and the 360 ground level flat spin in the final curve at the exit from the tunnel just before the finish line.
I did nothing but turn the car. No brakes. I did not initiate the drifting. The steering inputs are gentle and nothing sudden or radical. The game just takes over the car and I have no control until it drops speed near zero.

Style Oldie, you really need to add the Benny Hill music to that. :)

The flat 360 looks a lot like something from A9.

Yep, its like winter driving with summer tires. 😮

Thx for the vid compliment. iPhone makes it pretty simple. Sorry for no sound. I turn it off to play because it is distracting and I didn't feel like turning it back on for the vid.

lol, maybe somebody got carried away with cut-and-paste when they were trying to use common code.

Actually, I wonder if there is much common code between A8 and A9.

Too much oversteer is killing X2 handling. GL needs to adjust wings properly. 😅

I still love X2 but I agree it's a wild horse now. I still manage to get good laps on daily TLE but I feel like I'm always fighting with the car. It's kinda ugly to watch. 🙈

But I like it... 😁

BTW nice driving Oldman.

Thats too bad. The flat spin wasn't registered as a flat spin. Oh well. So much for my idea of doing a flat spin on azure coast.
