    After this most recent update, the civetta bolide seems to handle far, far better. I have noticed that the car doesn't spin out on takeoff without spinning the tires, which was my big beef. I have even taken the car around the sky curve, the grid one, not the concrete one. The bolide is very responsive and controllable. The best part, though, is when the car reaches the highest speeds; the car doesn't tilt to one side and gradually turn. The best part of the bolide is though, I now know how to drift it. all this was observed on a freaking keyboard.

    Has the Bolide then become too easy? Italian cars of the period were not easy. It was more "you make mistake, I kill you!"

    Still very much the case, but now it can do shallow drifts and corner under power. But it is still the most volatile car, especially in 390 trim. Very realistic.

    Kind of. He did occasionally say something funny.

    Clarkson said "handles good up to a point then it tries to kill you" when speaking about Lamborghini's made before whatever new model he was reviewing. I can't remember what Lambo he was reviewing and that was within the last 5 years.

    Despite the car's softening it does still very much want to swap ends at basically every opportunity. Drive it with a great deal of respect.

    A bug report, the 320 version spins out of control going in a straight line, when passing around 180 km/h.

    Also why did the Bolide get heavier after each update?
    (now the base version is over 1400 kgs)

    Why if I may ask? I was going completely straight on Grid map without having to turn or whatever. ;)

    Don't have to be so rude, go ahead and try it yourself if you think that I'm such a "sh..t" driver.

    Well, the bolide does turn causing it to spin out eventually when accelerating at high speeds. I couldn't really think of a reason to do so in real life.

    Thats because cars (especially 80's supercars) will not go perfectly straight at almost 200 km/h... letting go of the steering on any vehicle will mean it eventually turns and sometimes spin out, that chance is multiplied by 20 when driving an unstable supercar from about 30 years ago.

    To some degree yes, shaking and instability may occur at high speed, but what do we consider high enough speed?
    Because 180 km/h cannot be considered high for this kind of vehicle, for suv body style or say a boxy american car from that era may get unstable at that speed region, but certainly not a car of this caliber.

    Forgot to mention this veering problem only effect the "steel wheeled" 320 Bolide.

    A tire sidewall problem?

    How about no, because of physics? First of all, you're very close to the top speed when this happens; even if we assume the steering is not 100% straight, it doesn't make sense that a vehicle would spin out. Secondly, you don't let go off the steering, you're holding it as straight as it gets. Actually, letting go off the steering does stabilise the car in real life, if the acceleration is moderate. And we roughly accelerate 0.4m/s[SUP]2 [/SUP](pulled the number out of my rectum, but you get the point. It's slow, even for city driving), which isn't an exorbitantly high number.

    So no, unless you're living in a parallel-universe, this should not be physically possible. Not to mention:
    It doesn't happen with any other wheels. Go figure what part the actual problem is. Hint: It starts with "w" and ands with "heels".

    You've never really driven a car in real life, have you? When you let go of the wheel, the car will leave the lane you are in obviously. But it will never spin out when you let go of the wheel! A spin out is occured by applying and holding too much throttle in a powerful RWD car, not by letting go of the wheel.
