Aaron, I tried different cars from class C and D without using your profiler suggestions, and I felt significant difference in handling with the new patch. I will try your settings tomorrow.
But, for the rest of us
I also have a rumor, that we may expect a 3rd DLC coming soon, besides Legends DLC and Drag DLC. It will be Summertime-Convertibles DLC:
It will have 5 new cars (actually 4 new): Alfa Romeo 8C Spider, Aston Martin DBS Volante, Audi R8 Spyder, Koenigsegg Agera, Pagani Cinque Roadster. And new events will include gorgeous races on Miami and Riviera tracks.
I honestly can not feel that the cars handling has improved, is everyone faster than before with this new patch? Strange, but I am not...
Poul, the car and the fact of you having or not a custom setup in place is very relevant. On the Apollo I just improved 0.7s, which can almost be confused with no improvement at all in a Lap that takes close to 1m 50s, in the sense I am using Default Setup. But in SLS, which was a car that had no feeling whatsoever, I improved 3.5s... Just take a car you remember being terrible to drive and give it a go again.
The patch may have helped a little, but there's still a yaw stability issue which is also causing cars to oversteer with a minimum of steering input and requiring advance correction in anticipation of the oversteer response, so you end up memorizing control inputs as opposed to relying on feedback from the game.
Yeah, some extra official cars from EA would be very welcomed, even if they will lack so-called "CAD Data"
(Honestly, I think, if CAD data was used by EA/SMS, then only for GT3 and GT1 cars. Because regular cars in Shift2 seem to handle completely different from ones in GT5, where Acura NSX and Honda S2000 were best handling and fastest cars in the whole game)
For folks who will decide to try out new Shift2 cars I mentioned, I made an official tutorial on EA Forum how to install them.

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): Haven't it been quite dead for a while now? It's really a shame, as back when this was awesome place to hang out, and, well. I did stop being that active here, as unfortunatelly I kind of lost my love towards Need For Speed games. It's a shame, really...

CmdrTomalak (PC/PS3/PS4): Yep. Dead. Dead. Dead... Somebody should put it out of its misery. It all started waaaaaay back when Most Wanted came out and we all met on the EA forums and decided to branch out on our own. Sad way to go...

Tonnzzaah (PC/360/PS4): And unfortunately, the way Need For Speed games were for quite long time didn't help this place at all, for starters, I dropped off from NFS games completely. I did get both Shifts, Hot Pursuit (2010) and later Rivals, but they weren't enough...

Chandrian: I don't know how many of you know, but for a while, NFS World has worked very well on a public online server (probably a month or more since it became more stable), containing over 150k registered players.
Sept 7, 2018 14:15:36 GMT
Chandrian: The sync is now allowing races with more than 2 players, and pretty much all original NFSW features are working. The best part is that everything is available for in-game cash on this server.

Chandrian: You have to start with a new driver profile, but the progression isn't that hard. If you wanna play NFSW online again, then I advise downloading the launcher of this online server and also joining this Discord server:
