    From what I've been reading, Project Cars 2 will have 121 track LAYOUTS, 46 tracks.

    "Slightly Mad Studios soon revealed that the game was going to compose of 182 cars from 38 manufacturers and a variety of car and race car classes, the largest track roster on console (as of 2017) with 46 tracks (containing 121 layouts), the majority being laser scanned circuits."

    Ford family? When I was a very young teenager I got my license at 16. My older brother and I were going to school but working part time so we together could buy a used (great condition) 69 Mach 1, 351 Cleveland engine, 4 speed. It looked exactly like this:

    Attachment 153194

    In addition to its 0-60 numbers, it was quite an incredible feeling when at 70MPH and you floored it, the acceleration would actually throw you back in your seat. Even my girlfriend (s) at the time simply loved that car, and that (s) is likely at least partly due to that Mach 1. . So thanks to your family for all that fun I had 40+ years ago.
    Funny, I have a picture of that same Mustang year and model up on my wall. lol

    Posi traction - could light up the rear tires, shift into second and still didn't move an inch. :)

    Engine compression - take your foot off the gas in second gear and almost come to a stop immediately, no braking. Sweet!

    Ah, I miss those days. But don't miss going to court and losing my license - twice! Both times they had a road block on the other side to stop me as the car with the radar that clocked me was never going to get to me.

    I had a few similar experiences with cars and tickets. What is worse than going to court is going home and telling your Father. Now I would expect, that would depend on what your Father was like. With my Father, I would have preferred they locked me up in jail to protect me from him.

    Yes, the father part of it. Mine was the reason that sweet 1969 Mach 1 got sold.

    Are these (below) the numbers you're getting at 1440P Ultra, dude?

    The very high settings give more reasonable performance:

    No matter how fast you think your car is, you cannot outrun a radio. Running from the Police now can get you in prison.

    There was no running, no chase, no sirens. Just a lot of flashing red lights at the road block.The car that clocked me drove up "leisurely" 15 minutes after I was stopped at the road block, obviously realizing an attempted chase wouldn't have got to me.

    That was in the report the judge read. The judge asked the officer if he put on lights, sirens when I went by. Officer said no time but told the judge I actually waved at him as I went by. I'm pretty sure the judge's reaction rubbing his forehead and looking down at his notes was actually hiding a :)

    Not far off from the review numbers I put up. I'd be going with the 10 FPS improvement in minimum FPS and the very high settings. Asus (ROG) did an in depth analysis of GRW with recommended graphic settings for each of their Pascal GPU's (ie 1060, 1070, 1080). Most of what I read recommends very high settings for a 1070. You can see a bit of a difference in the terrain, but not much.
