    Whoa there brother.Having watched Motorsports for 45 years,F1 now is a 2 team,maybe 3 team field. Oval racing is not as easy as people think. Short track Ovals are some of the most fun too watch and race. In the end,its a UK developer,not European. Kinda like saying Canadians are American,don't think so! They said there would be Ovals,so when they get here,they get here. As for ranting and raving,well Parcells,chill dude.

    SMS is an international company, 2 (or 3? not sure, actually) of the physic leads and several other employees are located in the US of A and Canuhduh. One of the physics guys is an avid oval racers and IIRC he worked on Nascar games already in the past.

    I'm American an I find oval racing boring, but fun and challenging to actually race, but my only experience is iRacing so yeah... Back then I enjoyed oval as much as road racing, although I admit to being more biased towards road racing.

    I was looking foreward to having Ovals on here ,but considering the way bumpers/fenders seem to lock onto each other ,i`m thinking it will make the skill of pushing another car very acardish

    But hey ho they may address that

    I don't care for oval racing, but if people want it, why not.
    But please let it be in DLC packs, so that I don't have to buy it (as cheap as PCars DLC are), and PLEASE, give us the possibility to leave it out of career mode.
    I had enough of this in GT series...:crazy:

    I was referring to NASCAR,as in "real" NASCAR. Too much Aero damage can happen now to front end.

    Well seeing SMS is trying to replicate "real physics" I'm sure it is relevant!:banghead:

    Yes i do watch Nascar,I get it on PremierTV in the UK,I can also watch Fox Sports for Nascar ,and i have never seen Nascars lock Bumpers/Fenders ,The only game ive seen worse for bumpers like this was Nascar the Game ,wont make any difference for the short or intermediate Oval tracks ,but the plate races will just be who comes to the room with the most friends

    Kind of kills it for realism dont you think

    No it doesn't. When was the last race you watched,when they pushed each other in a NASCAR race. They don't have bumpers in NASCAR,its a piece of sheet metal,kevlar thats a vinyl sticker that looks like a bumper, as well as the lights/taillights. NASCAR will lock fenders,I don't know what your watching! Should I YouTube it for you. You do realize the car is covered in a vinyl sheet that looks like a car?

    Yes i know this ,but i refered to the bumpers/fenders locking as its looks like a bumper ,why are you trying to create and win an argument that has no relevance to what i stated in the first place?

    I'm not arguing,it looks and is,is a complete different statement. It's not a bumper! It's body panels locking,which is why they don't push each other in NASCAR anymore! It would kill aero,air flow,coolers etc.They lock up because of tubular framing hooking together.

    But its a video game and for me the ease of pushing one another will be particularly easy in my opinion that they may address

    Which i dont find realistic ,which is why i am not looking foreward to it ,its a feeling not a statement or true fact just my feeling

    Now can i ask what the above statement has to do with real Nascar

    Ok its a video game,I get it.People want realism,which SMS does quite a good job at replicating.
    This is why bump drafing is not allowed because of aero packages.


    Or perhaps this will help.

    And thats my point!! When players know how easy it is to bump draft on this game realism will go out the window
    which is why i wrote in my opening statement I AM NOT LOOKING FOREWARD TO IT

    Are you watching the race now?
    In this game if you bump,the cars go squirlly.
    In NASCAR if you bump, the cars go squirlly! Sounds like SMS has it bang on.
    So drafting,not "bump drafting" will dictate who gets to the front.

    Are you sure you have tried pushing or bump drafting on this game?

    The ovals are done. Screen shots of them near completed have been on WMD's site forever.
    SMS are just trying to maximize profits by releasing it in a lull, no doubt right around thanksgiving or Christmas.
    It's been in their back pocket waiting for a while.
    Or perhaps as mentioned above.
    When Daytona comes around in January?
    It's definitely meant to hook some new U.S. Players and maximize coin.
