* Even if it's original, you can't play online without a server emulator (I think they don't exist, I don't know any.). So, just remove it!
> You can add Online Options to Options Menu. I wanted to add it, I don't know if it's used or not.

– You can select different Lap and Opponent counts for KO!

* The game loads maximum 6 bots in a race. Usually, the last 3 one gets corrupted cars.

  1. Go to the any* Car Select menu.
  2. Find the car you like.
  3. While it's on screen, press F4.
  4. Start any Quick Race (Select any car, you'll get the frozen one.) or Challenge Series event (With your superfast Pizza delivery car! :D), or go for a Free Roam**.

> An experimental fix is added to prevent crashes for unexistent blacklist rivals (bins).

– You can modify the Game Speed for races.
> Use GameSpeed option from config file to set game speed.
! It doesn't affect menus.
! Too low and high values will corrupt car physics and control responsiveness.
