The Fountain Of Knowledge has been updated with a response to a question on car physics. Here's a clip:

" Ok, so we've seen it countless times; flashy racing games with cars that have full suspension. Check out "Re-Volt" for the Dreamcast for example. If you put one wheel off a ledge, the car tilts over until the underside grounds on the floor. If you go too far then the whole car rolls over. At all times during this, the suspension of the car appears to react perfectly with the underlying geometry. "Grand Prix Legends" and "Driver" are other examples of excellent suspension dynamics.

So the BIG question is: Is it just faked? Or are they really doing accurately modelled physics? "

Slide over to the Fountain for Paul Nettle's response.
