This is an early test of a kart racing game I'm working on. I have no idea if I'll ever finish this, but this is what I have right now! I followed @Mot's tutorial, but it didn't have any details on how to make a car controller at all, so I improvised. The code is really messy...

1st thing I noticed, @Hunterboy344, is the turning is too quick. Not the steering wheel, the road.

When a road turns it is gradual. Yes it may meet a hairpin but only after a period of time, and then the road starts to gradually straighten itself out again.

Here now, look at this classic arcade game, "Outrun" to see how they are doing it.

@dw817 That’s fair. The track right now is really just a test of different corner intensities and how they work with the drift mechanic. The finished game (if there is one) will be a lot more reasonable when it comes to turns.
