    The vid was cool. I thought you were going to skid to a stop at the end.

    Hehe, such a cool and different looking car (compared to Oz competition). She seems very understeery on corner exits though. Try less speed in (ie brake earlier and harder lifting the rear, enabling snappier turn in) then power out. It will shift the weight of the car off the front and transfer some of the grip to the rear, but you'll have to find the right balance between front end slip (does velma have tc? if yes, turn it off). You'll be able to carry more corner speed when both axles are handling lateral g's post apex

    Then again Victoria only has a 4 cylinder hanging over the nose so she probably has a slight balance advantage.
    Evil begets evil Mr. President. Shooting will only make it stronger.

    That looks fun. I want to play!

    I love the Aurora, still very cool looking cars in my opinion!

    Yeah, I haven't really done any "performance handling" tricks yet. Never really had the desire to really. She is more of a luxo-cruiser. She is amazingly tail heavly and very understeery. She doesn't have TC, but I will see what I can do in terms of performance.
