I like this description of SHIFT. The corner mastering feature sounds awesome. I will definitely be focused on getting those check marks.

So drifting has been mentioned many times, but there's still no screenshots, gameplay footage, or talk about an actual drift mode. I hope they aren't simply stating that drifting is possible while racing... :?

So much about simulation.

I.. dont.. think I am going to buy this game anymore... :|

I guess I will just get Forza 3 for my 360 instead.
