    Wow, what a fun little gem! It's a throwback to 90's racing games like Top gear and Outrun, except with better graphics and better car selections.

    Been playing it for a couple of days and it's actually really fun. Plus the soundtrack is really cool. It shows a reason why we need more proper old school arcade racers.

    I've had more fun with this than with GT Sport. I like the A.I. in this game.

    I sat down tonight thinking I'd play for 30 mins or so. 2 hours later... What an addictive, colourful & great sounding game, I love it. If it wasn't for my wife & FOS tomorrow I could happily play this all night. Can't wait till my next go !! Everyone who has PS Plus should download this.

    PS I especially like the night stages.

    I am afraid to ask: Is there wheel support?

    It will not replace the time I spend with GT Sport but it sure is fun in its own way!

    I saw this post and had a friend print one out. I'll be picking it up tomorrow morning. I'll let ya know how it works. I'll test it with that game, GTS and PC2. Hoping it will be a good, cheap (free!) solution until I can get a hub and set up my wheel.
    Game looks really good too. Definitely has that outrun feel to it. Gonna give that a go tonight

    Ok, took some laps with that thing in GTS and this game. It has potential. If there is interest I might do a write up with my ideas to make it much better.
    That said, the novelty factor pairs well with the novelty of HCT. Definitely fun. Definitely worth a print if you or a friend has a 3d printer.

    It is really fun to play and reminds me the old scholl racing games I play on my pc when I was a little boy.

    Just out of curiosity; what about it did you want to see improved? Something about the materials used maybe, or the grip?

    Cant complain about materials since it's a 3d print. The fit and finish is completely within my control.
    I would change placement of the left thumb rest on the wheel. I would also make the wheel just a bit smaller. I would tweak the slide mechanism a bit, and utilize the addition of some bosses so I could drill and tap them for screws. This I would do the slide mechanism, rather than how it is now, where you force the slide over the tab, and for the section of the slide that attaches to the joystick grip.
