So far I give the handling in this game a grade of Ballsweat out of 5
Worse than S/S...I am sure I will get used to it but it is so crappy. It deviates from what I expect it to do. Do I expect it to be like RR, S/S or FO? I dunno. Right now it just seems like slide into the wall on the end of the corner and straighten out. Otherwise you might spin around entirely and be stuck at 0 MPH.
Right now I would hate to do any drifting events, but not for the reason Yoshi gave. It is simply because the cars suck at turning.
