Hey thanks for playing and sharing your thoughts!
Agreed, you can definitely exploit the game once you know the gimmick. Our idea for an improvement was to add a career mode in which you would compet against virtual opponents. In this mode, we would not allow you to crash the car by giving wrong commands. Giving wrong commands would only impact your time in the race. The only way to crash would be to go the opposite direction - gain the driver's trust by giving enough good commands and then issuing one bad command to send them off the road. This way the crash can only be earned by playing meticulously.
