http://www.hrej.cz/clanky/dosove-nebe-stunts-4916/ - Long review on a Czech gaming news portal, published this June. Links to ZakStunts. A quote from the closing paragraph:

Quote from:  Tomáš Kraj?a @ Hrej.cz (Google-assisted translation)A game which was "social", "open" and "community-based" long before such buzzwords became mandatory equipment.

I made contact with a youtuber of Stunts. Maybe can be a new pipsqueak. But, I lost the link (facepalm)

I wonder what's up with Neil. I had the worst flamewars of my life with him...

It was! I was even banned from his Stunts forum for a while!

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/GoodBadBugs/DrivingGame - Stunts is mentioned as one among several examples. Includes a surprisingly accurate description of powergear - even anti-powergear is mentioned!

Marco's excellent Youtube channel reviewing Stunts. I love the trouble with the car security system :) Check the replay part, very strange, I did not know about this bug.

btw Marco has mad skills when it comes to driving games. If you ever played F1GP2 at Ace level without driving aids you'll understand after watching this video:

Cool, he has an original 4D Sports Driving disk set. It could be interesting/boring to take a look at the raw data. There have been some incidents where portions of a build machine's RAM have leaked to unused sectors of the master floppies.

I have a boxed Amiga copy with Mindscape v1.2 version. I believe 1.2 was never issued for PC, but it contains several fixed bugs and an overall very different driving experience - any chance you can use it for something if I dump the data somehow?

Amiga software is usually distributed as ADF files, raw disk images. I've looked at the MS1.2 version floating around on the net, but the unused areas between the sector boundaries were blank. I have no idea if these images were made from the original disks, or if the files had been copied to blank disks first. Finding new Stunts artifacts is probably just wishful thinking on my behalf. :)

Edit: The version I have looked at is pre-cracked, so it's probably not from the original disks.

This is not original either, but I have extracted the contents of the ADF images. The file structure seems quite similar to PC versions, but it seems more stuff is integrated. I wonder if we could port the physics engine part to PC. Probably not.
