This is the first patch that im actually impressed by. Im really liking the Speedboost Store changes, Gifts changes and the pre-race/post-race screen changes.

This patch is definitely a step in the right direction for EA imo.

Yeah, you're probably 99.99% correct, but it was a joke concerning how long it took for drag to come out and all the rumors till it finally came Razz Canyons would be epic though in Need for Speed world. It would test the control of your car and how you can handle it through corners. I mean sprints and all, but canyons you could fall off Exclamation
