I never got around to doing a review for DVR 1.5 or DVR TE, however, I consider them two of my favorites by Fila with respect to pure racing. Yes, they're not much to look at, but neither are Arroyo, Calisto Canyon, Muskoka Road, P.B.A, Paper Run, SpunWun, Spunwunagan, Mariposa, and a slew of other great tracks. What they do offer is exceptional racing (in my opinion) because of the layout, the right mixture of complexity/simplicity, and a number of other subtleties. In my mind DVR 1.5 and DVR TE were fine as is, even with the invisible wall by the train tracks (gag).
Barren? Yes. Technically flawed in a number or areas? Absolutely, but boy...the racing, especially among skilled racers, was (and is) always fast, fierce, and tons of fun.
Having said that, the work you've done on Redux is quite impressive to say the least. It's a heck of a face-lift, and I also noticed a number of technical fixes. I haven't tried the new patch yet, but I'll get around to it this weekend. I'm looking forward to seeing this track and others with the new and improved draw distance.
Well done Fila, and on a completely different note, thanks a ton
for keeping this site going. It's the centerpiece of MTM as far as I'm concerned, so it's great to see it up and running still.
