If You have any suspicion that someone is cheating, look at the wrecord site, if the guy is there, its surely not a cheater because the wrecord client doesnt allow ANY modification to the game
Just because they use wrecord doesn't mean they can't simply turn it OFF when playing online and happily go about the cheating. And I think that's just what some of these boys do.
Because I have also met some DoeRT players online (didn't remember their particular names), and sometimes their speed advantage simply cannot be explained without cheating being involved.
Mind you, I know how to upgrade and tune a car for maximum speed instead of easy handling/traction, and I'm not a bad driver, so when I'm driving such a powerful car and some DoeRT player is in the same
car model and continuously out-performing my own car while I'm not making any mistakes, there is something fishy about it. I can explain it if he pulls away from me at the beginning, he probably has it tuned for acceleration. But if he also gets a way higher top speeds than me on the straights, and has a seemingly never-ending amount of grip through the corners, there is something wrong with that picture. It's like they sometimes have an infinite supply of nitrous, or simply more power and grip than what is normally possible by modding the car files.
I have never noticed the mysterious smoke though.
