Boost power is also affected by the cars you choose prior to the races. One thing I've noticed, though, is that regardless of my vehicle or how long I hold a drift, the end boost is usually pretty insignificant – it's not like you get this sudden speed burst that really propels you forward; rather, your car more or less farts and by the time you even notice you've gained some speed, it's over. It's just not very pronounced and as a result it's not as satisfying. Yet, there's definitely some strategy to using the slides, as has always been the case. If you time them well, you can drift around corners without losing speed and when you're good enough, you'll be able to drift around a right curve and readjust for a left one without losing much momentum. That stuff is still really fun." - Matt Casamassina If this is true I will be overjoyed when this game comes out. If it has been confirmed there is no snaking then i'm sorry been living under a rock and if this has been posted b4 I'm also sorry. Of course it might be just a mistake but w/e delete this post if any of the above are true, mods.
