Live For Speed

I had been playing the game for a while. What is Live For Speed (LFS)?
Let Wikipedia explain it:

Live for Speed (also known as LFS) is an online racing simulator developed by a three person team comprising Scawen Roberts, Eric Bailey, and Victor van Vlaardingen.[2] The main focus is to provide a realistic racing experience for the online multiplayer game and to allow dramatic single player race against AI (Artificial Intelligence) cars. Users may set personal best lap records in Hotlap Mode, and take driving skills lessons. Outstanding players may be invited to join private league teams.

And the cool things bout the game are:

The physics engine simulates tyres, different suspensions, aerodynamics, drivetrain, several gearbox types, clutch overheating and damage to suspension, car body and partial engine damage. Some features of the mathematical tyre model (not based on Pacejka formula) created by Scawen Roberts are; every tire is divided to 48 sampling points (arranged as 16 along the circumference by 3 across the width of the tire), dynamic wear, dynamic dirt on tyre surface, flat spots, hot spots and visible real-time deformation of the tyre walls.


Well, some of the screenshot I captured yesterday:
I was being donut-ed by others LFS member.

Why LFS?
The main reason is; I dont have a drift car! In-game, you dont have to pay for damages, tyres, fuel, and track-fee. Hehehe. Its the best deal for me before I can drift in the real world. Come and join us!

Oh, the game license, its £24. Mine? I bought it at RM70 only! From oldtimer of LFS. Hahaha. My luck I guess!
