Hey, thx for your opinion on the ideas.
I only want realistic explosions cuz it makes the races more fun. Cuz right now, (especially when u have unlimited armor) you can just plough through caltrops and shrug it off like they weren't even there. Whereas with realistic explosions, when u drive over them, u will at least slow down, or even flip over, which will make it easier for the opponents to get past you. Also, the realistic explosions and there more orange-ish color is just quite nostalgic for me and that's why I really want it. I hope u understand :)
Also, ur probably right cuz it's unlikely that Xform will update the game again cuz they're working on Burnin Rubber 6 probably.
