Editors' review

This program includes several modules to help you fine-tune your racecar or motorbike, but it suffers from an unfriendly design and lack of user guidance. Traffic C.A.R.S.'s no-frills interface offers five applications under its file-header menu, allowing you to check Cubic Capacity & Compression, Exhaust Systems, Forced Induction, Transmission, and Tyres. You'll also find BHP and Elapsed Time calculators.

Even at its smallest size, the screen is mostly blank space, and the applications and calculators open in smaller windows within the program that can't be resized. Each application displays the same tools to add and modify information, but tool tips are the only help you'll get in understanding the program. Though you can enter data and view graphs for each section,

Traffic C.A.R.S. doesn't offer any reporting or printing options, so the hefty 25MB download size is a bit surprising. We are also disappointed that the demo version automatically shuts down after only two minutes. There's little to recommend about this underperforming software, especially with its high price tag, and racing aficionados should look elsewhere for a way to fine-tune their machines.

    "incorrect editor review"

    May 07, 2007   |   By dola236

    Version: C.A.R.S. 2.0.5

    Pros

    the download size is 13.1MB, not 25. Help is included in the retail version. It helps to know something about engines and transmission systems in order to follow; it's not a word processor. 1,715 registered users can't be wrong.

    Cons

    the interface is nothing to write home about but then, this application is meant to be used in a workshop where different windows for the same vehicle may need to be displayed side-by-side.
