    Kudos to Chedburn and the team. To actually see my car going around the track is awesome. Watching my car another car Z battle for 1st 2nd and 3rd place was pretty well suspenseful. I have a new found love for the raceway.

    I haven't seen it but I don't see the point in constantly upgrading it if we can't interact with it =/

    If the same tracks keep repeating just leave it and join another race I'm sure you'd get a different track.

    Three different tracks so far -  joined with the same car in each race. 

    The live "updates" are a little gimmicky -  in both completed races so far I've been shuffled back and forth in the pack before streeting the field later in the race - but I like how the races are on sections of the city map. 

    I like apples doo doo doo...

    This nice changes have brought me back to the track.I enjoy watching it live.Plus I can see how the particular vehicle I chose on the track reacts to it and then I can make slight changes to better balance the vehicle.I am keeping a taley sheet on how it responds to the corners then to acceleration versus braking on the tracks I am watching.Gonna take awhile to see all the tracks with the vehicles I am using,but will be fun.

    It is certainly a great improvement over the previous one. I guess a lot more tactics and strategy will be required to upgrade cars.

    I can see alot of switching around that actually gives you a better idea of what works better with this car on this particular track.

    I've always wondered why races have the ~55 minute timer before the race starts/finishing/whatever. Any reason for this? I'm interested in viewing the race, but I'll have to come back and remember that I am even racing to begin with to see the improvements.

    yeah the hour wait is long, they should have a X amount of time to wait once the race is full, like 10mins or something. love the upgrade though. when i got to rank A i had already spent my points and was coming 6th place every race, ended up opting for travel instead. 

    watching the cars race in real time is amazing, the whole thing has been done very well. hoping that the match making part has improved so i can start getting better results maybe a win here and there.

    I used to own a horse racing game on my dad's first DOS PC, it looked a little like racing does in Torn (the colours were much worse if I remember correctly, everything was cyan and green). You could bet on the horses and then see the little markers go round. If I remember correctly, you could even add your own horses to the race.

    It would be great if we could bet on races before they start. There could be odds or flat rates, I wouldn't care. 

    I'm a fan of this update though, I'm excited for future updates that have been mentioned.

    Watched my first race. First two laps, I was killing it; however on the last three laps I had another player slowly catch up to me and eventually pass me on the last lap. I managed to regain the lead in the last straight away and win. Was exciting to watch! The other player and I beat the 3rd place guy by a minute (and everyone else hadn't finished when I closed window). Good job Ched!

    I find it curious that people are enamored with watching such things and getting all geeked out about it.

    Is it cool, meh, a little.  Does it change the game, nope.

    Don't quite see how it fits into making the game better.  I am still maxed out at class A and nothing left to achieve.

    Stop making things look pretty and get to the REAL updates, enough window dressing.
