Hi Krom, thankyou for your reply, I have already patched using wr2_update_111_133.exe. What included readme are you referring to? There was not a readme in this patch, I have not seen a cheat-code, except for the extra speed bucks which made no difference to being able to drift. When drifting the point count often appears in red, hence no points, quite often I get an onscreen message saying great slide or something similiar but still only low count of points. When the point count gets high I end up in a 360 degree spin! I have no problems with games like GTR, GT Legends, RD2, RD3 or RBR. I have tried applying RBR techniques but still no joy!! Is there another cheat code that I am not aware of, or maybe a special method for drifting in this game. Apart from drifting this would have to be one of the best written games that I have played. I have only had the game for a short while got it on eBay and I would really like to see whats after the 26% mark.
