It was canned and replaced by the UF GTR. In a nutshell, it was declared to difficult to drive and there were already to many RWD cars added to S2 (as if!!). Personally I would have loved to have the chance to decide that for myself - I wanted that car more than anything in S2, from the moment I saw it's first screenie.
Who could not love trying to tame a topless light-weight vehicle, V8 powered, no downforce, and with fat slicks??
I think UFR is a great car, and would be even more if we'd have rally-cross tyres for it... (I know there's a mod for it...)
But I just can't understand why there couldn't be both, UFR and LX8, giving us 11 cars in S2 except that they wouldn't be correctly lined up in Content-page.
I wasn't a big fan of lx's, until you Bob made those easy race-setups, now I actuelly enjoy driving'em.
I really would like to see LX8 remaked, before it was canceled it just looked same as LX6 (what could have been one reason to cancel it), it only had bigger engine, slicks and exhaust pipes on both sides. Why not put the driver in the midle, bigger roll cage, and do something to the headlights so they would look like more aerodynamic and above all make it look more like a racer... It would have been a mad car thought, I wonder what was the horsepower/1000kg
