This is a good point. Everyone on here is advising the use of powerful cars, when maybe this is part of the problem. too much power can be a bad thing in certain cases. I myself always use something with around 300bhp, but even then, this can be too much. I guess like anything to do with GT, you just have to learn to drive the tracks and handle the cars. I've not had the chance to play CMR 2005 yet, but I've played every other version before. I've always enjoyed playing them, and never had a problem with the handling of the cars. I'll try CMR 2005 sometime soon.
