    Well, I installed this game using apt-get in Ubuntu 9.10 and i found it very appealing visually. What i didn’t like was the way the car handled. It was like nothing i had ever tried!
    I’ve tried other Car Sim games but this was too hard for me… Driving it takes a lot of paitience and still you can’t get over a corner very fast. At least in GRID, a windows game that i played, i could handle the car.
    But here, every single movement blows the car off the road.
    Is there a tweak by which i could tame the car? It just keeps spinning…

    Thanks.
    Ps. I play using keyboard.
