Well, the only thing was that the beta had less gravity, making jumps bigger and easier and the car harder to control in general.

i remember the massive landing bugs on island before they change it. Think snow or even dirt but much worse, you couldnt really do big jumps without flipping on landing at all

Ah yes, I forgot about that, landing in Island was pretty terrible. I think that whenever the bodywork hit the ground rather than the wheels, weird things would happen. And that happens a lot with those flat Island cars. Good thing they changed it :P

Have you ever played the TMS beta? There, on Island, drifting was faster than normal turning. Guess what happened? In the end, us record drivers were drifting always, even on straights (making lots of S-turns) because it was faster than just driving the straight.
They changed it to the Island it is now. I like it a lot more ^^
I know what i was putting down, I drove it :P

Can't remember this, i generally never watch TM video's unless it's something big like the first 1k project or something :P
It was reverse drifting on Coast, and I've seen a few of the videos which rock.

Yes, it's possible, and it's a lot of damn fun sliding the car.

This is just a knock-up idea of a name and I dunno how it would work but TrackMania Neon? Like I said - I'm a bit obsessed with completely pimping out my Stadium Car in Trackmania United, and maybe they could get the whole bodywork mods thing going - and since it's TM you could download stuff other people make. xD.

It's a dumb idea, but I'm obsessed with making neon shadows.

edit

On the subject of drifting, I've found out that if you get the angle of a forced drift right on TM Nations the car will pick up speed, and quite quickly. I noticed this whilst trying to get the speedo to 1,000 circling the outside of the stadium.

They need to make a Trackmania where there can be car-to-car collisions, for an added sense of realism. And then, too, there could be more of a sense of reckless driving; shoving your opponent into a wall or the ocean (TMS).
Cruisin' through life, TM-Style!

I was thinking of Trackmania 1942 8)
You get to drive in a tank and an aircraft. you drive around a track with a tank and you have to avoid incoming missils or then your damage increases and if your damage is too much then you explode and you hve to respawn. And in the aircraft you whip-weave through the air around a fast paced track laid out by markers and you dogfight against each other.
Who says Trackmania is only for cars? Not me, it never said that. (Besides, the "Track" in trackmania stands for any kind of track you make :P )
cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrssssssss Jonathan :)

What about SimTrackmania? You drive a person around a house you can build yourself, you can build custom houses and have a start at the front door and a check upstairs and the finish at the back door! Fun! xD

i'd say trackmania the gathering
a card game based around the trackmania universe. guaranteed to be a hit
as much as the trackmanias may rule, carmageddon 1 & 2 are still the best games ever :D

dont knowabout a new game however what would you make to a drivable multi player game lobby (a hangout) lets say a bit of all environments a few carparks chill out at and show off your ride maybe with the possibility to drive to the server you want to play maybe thats a little to far fetchedand over complicated but non the less an idea

hehe i dont mean custom tracks lobby OH NO more like a pre biult town/city made by Nadeo simply for the fact of gathering when you cant be bother to race
cruse or park up til you fancy racing or see a friend drive past you...call it a free roaming enviroment entirly pre biult by nadeo for the strict use of lobbying not racing

now this is where i get flamed by the n00b's
