Id say your LFS issues were mostly setup as thats how I like to drive and can acheive it most of the time. The cars I drive in LFS (mostly the single seaters) can be made to feel like completely different cars by making changes to the suspension, wheel geometry and downforce. With a bit of setup time I can dial the cars in beautifully to fit my style. I often have many different setups for qual and races depending on how savage the setup is on the tyres. I drive in a BF1 (BMW Sauber 2006 F1) league (oneGP: http://www.onegp.net/).

Probably makes people race more like they where in real cars (accidents tend to be expensive and can hurt in real cars), but still can be pretty annoying at times. It also adds to the sense of excitement, so i'm a bit devided about the whole rating system
You can do practice though without any risk of loosing out on the ranks though

As I say, it's not a knock, but think of this (in terms of feel) as a highly polished n2003 mod. If you got on with that you will get on with this.
Of course the subscription is pretty expensive when compared to what we're used to but then I can excuse that for the absolutely top class track modelling (n2003 was good but the track surface typically has much more subtle differenciations now) and, more importantly, the truly professional feel of a 'race weekend'. In probably 40 odd races of my first month I've been involved in minimal scrapes and dings yet the average race pace is pretty ferocious.

I know it's odd to pay for a demo but it is only $20... and it is a good product, though still far from perfect.
