Here's my review:
I'll break the track down into different aspects which I feel are integral to a great drag track, rating them from 1 (terrible) to 10 (perfect)...
TEXTURES-10...Never before have I seen dirt textures for a drag track so realistic-looking. DeMoN did his textures a new way, actually making a new texture for each grid square on the track, and the result is simply amazing. It adds a great deal of realism to the track, and it's nice to see little touches like the dirt and concrete transfers being blended well and tire tracks from previous monster runs that outline the race course.
MODELS-9.5...The only reason they don't get a 10 is because some weren't painted absolutely perfectly. That being said, the cars are very unique and realistic, as are the crushed vans and the bus. No lag is apparent on my computer. The poles are just the right size, and aren't too hard to knock over. You don't get stuck on anything too. The stadium was redone from an MTM1 stadium and done very nicely, once again giving the track a unique setting and feel. The ramps are new custom .bins, and nice ones at that.
MODEL RAMPS-8.5...This is the only area of this track that I wasn't totally satisfied with. The cars don't give you much air when you hit the ramps in racing, and in freestyle, the same thing happens...not much air. It is very hard to do a good sky-wheelie. Other than that, everything seems to work well and is perfect. It would have been nice to hit the freestyle pyramid sideways, but not many people do this anyway. Everything else is very well set up, especially the realistic mud pit.
LAYOUT-10...The layout is VERY well done and thought out. For racing, it is a simple J-drag. The turns are somewhat tight, making it challenging, but not TOO challenging, so you can slide around them and improve your times. The tuff truck course is laid out nicely, and much in the same manner as the monster truck course, a J-style setup. For freestyle, the mud pit is a very nice touch, and realistic to boot...it'll bounce you around a bit, and even flip you if you're not careful! There is one car-van-bus-van-car pyramid, and of course the tuff truck ramps and cars as well.
OVERALL DRAGGING EXPERIENCE-10...This one's staying on my podded list, that's for sure. DeMoN really took his time on this track, and it showed here. It may not be a replica of a real track, but it is very realistic. The only thing I could think to complain about is something extremely minor, the car ramps for freestyle, and it may have been his intent to do them that way anyway
. Great textures, great setup, unique bins, and a great layout make me wanna keep this track and continue racing it. Very well done.
