Yeah agreed, the AI cars are way too easy to beat. They are fun to compete against in the Last Man Standing/deathmatch modes but not in circuit racing. Online multiplayer is awesome fun if you are in a low ping server but there's rarely any servers in my part of the world so i'm forced to use higher ping servers which aren't much fun at all. The current damage model is way too over the top, it goes crazy when you play in a laggy server and your car deforms into some ridiculous shapes. It's hilarious but not exactly good, it just looks like the game is broken.
