Well, frankly it doesn't bother me, but I just figured it bothered most everybody else in the SD community, so I'll start giving them "the look."

Last week I found a cheap game wheel (Thrustmaster Ferrari GT). I finally got to try it out this weekend. Up to this point I had been keyboard driving. I must say even with this cheap one, it makes all the difference in the world! Cars that were undrivable for me before handled pretty nicely. I even won some quick races too. I think I'm now gonna have to rework all my cars – again.

I offer this car as is. My real job has been keeping me very busy lately and I haven't had time to really finish it up the way I'd like.

Uh, for some reason, there's no AI that drives the cars you made.

No, there is not. Someone will have to make one.

Here's another I offer as is. It handles pretty nicely and in reality it shouldn't.

Very nice cars as always.
As for robots driving your cars, it'd certainly be nice if someone could set one up, since you have already a complete set of matching cars. (unfortunately i have no knowledge about how to do this so i can be no help there)

Thanks WEC, yeah I've experimented with trying to adapt a robot for the cars, but I've been unsucessful ... I think it would be great if someday there was a universal robot that could drive all the cars, maybe just some xml tweaks or something like that.
