X Motor Racing is an auto simulator with next generation physics model. The high speed on highway, offroad obstacles, side slip need for car handling skills. There are highway ring roads, bridges, narrow sections, banked road surfaces, steep descents and ascents, springboards, wet asphalt, puddles, stone heaps, dirt and sand. The driving strategy includes such aspects as acceleration and braking, oversteer and understeer, weight transfer, tyre friction and slip angle, road surface.
