I LOVE THIS UPDATE!! I'm still awaiting the ominous T4... who among us probably has a T3 that's going to go to T4? I suspect the Pagani is one... that thing was epic to use in Drag races in Prostreet. It was also fun to crash the AI Pagani with my R-34 in a Speed race lol!

the two new Team Evades are brutally tough now, cops are properly organised and theres a roadblock with rhino's and spikes roughly every 100 yards, and you get busted a lot easier now, hit some cars and slow below 50-60Mph ya screwed especially at a roadblock, oh and they are limited to two people too

New cars aren't too bad, the Corvette is pretty and handles about the same as the old one, ignore what they said about improving the top end, absolute codswallop tbh, car still runs out of wind around 225mph without nos

the Lexus well, pretty, well sort of, handles like a tank top speed i managed in race with no nos was 205mph so not too bad, but trying to take corners at those speeds is bonkers stupid lol

Not sure if they've done something about all these speedhacks etc etc but i haven't seen one in a single race today, which makes a pleasant change

Oh they resized the friends box, and you can't change it back either :/ urgh!
