    one feature that nascar heat 4 has that i do not remember seeing anywhere else is the ability to adjust the a.i. with sliders besides how good they are compared to you .

    you can adjust the density , how close the a.i. run to each other . and you can also adjust with sliders how stable the a.i. is , how easily you can get them loose by touching them .

    realradman and jeff .f have videos up documenting these adjustments on youtube .

    I've only had the game for about an hour and thus far I'm impressed (The last NASCAR game I played was 2011). Granted I do think the game is lacking some fairly common features that other racing games have (livery editor, solo practice & custom championships), but considering the size of the studio I'm fine with them working on getting the fundamentals right before adding other bells & whistles. I can see myself spending lots of time with this game!

    On a side note, do the AI cars use alternate schemes? Steam doesn't have the gold edition so I just got the standard version and would like to know before I fork over $30.

    I bought Heat 3 and although I had some fun, I was not blown away by it. I will probably wait until this is on sale.

    I got a wheel bug with the game where I have no ffb at the start and it takes a few laps to start working. Otherwise it’s a great game

    I HATE the Xtreme Series. My car is always just a tad slower on the straights, and as soon and we go into the corner I'm just pinball all around and eventually into the wall. I'm just simulating all the races now until I'm done.

    Hi guys, i just tried the demo of nascar heat 3 and i love the racing in traffic and a.i. at full speed. It seems heat 4 is quite better. Anyone know if there will be a demo soon? Maybe @Novalee you have info on it? Not much chat on this here, is there a thread for nascar heat?

    Edit: i noticed a dip in smoothness when switching on the mirror in hood and 3rd person view and when in cockpit view in the demo of heat 3. It's enough to make me turn it off often even if so usefull of course. I'm wondering if they improved this in heat 4?

    Edit 2: tried heat 3 demo with my wheel and i love it too. Most fun as i can remember i had in a racing game. Not so easy to maneuver in trafficc and near the wall lol. Losing it a little if maneuver a bit too sharply and then touch another car or wall. Love it really. I was trying daytona in hood view. Even the sound is not so bad. Tha a.i. really fun to race, they move around but smoothly, race each other and avoid you pretty well. ..Better than me.
