My experience with GT5 prologue suggests that it is the more realistic game in terms of driving dynamics.

Granted, I played that game with a steering wheel, but nevertheless.
There you go.

It's based on real world specs, so I don't see how they could just "up" the grip levels to make it more arcadey.

Maybe it's because the Mini is a John Cooper Works model?

F1 cars take hairpins at ~40-50. John Cooper is beyond an engineering genius if he can make a Mini do the same.

i dont really recall there being a "hairpin turn" in the demo so im pretty sure the op was exagerating.

No I haven't, but I know what a hairpin turn is. I'm just saying there's no way any production car could take a hairpin at 50 mph.

Question, can you map the controls?

And why no DRLs?
