Hey guys, I've been in contact with Ghost and EA several times regarding this game, in one correspondence I was told in order to get things changed it often requires a lot of community input, which is what happened in Battlefield when they changed those requirements.
Now Battlefield is more popular than this game, so this "solution" is part of an appeal I setup over on PST and XBA forums. EA need a good hounding on this, and chances are it will equate to nothing, but it's worth a shot.
For anyone coming here new to the Speedlists DLC...and wondering what the issue is....let's break it down:
- Insane Gold Medals (people can barely get bronze)
- Only a select few cars can make the times (all in game vehicles should be able)
- Cops & Online are present during all this
- Worst vehicle handling in any NFS game to date
- Inconsistent wall collisions...sometimes you bounce, sometimes you crash out
- AI traffic seems to aim for you at times
- Sometimes you can't even go in a straight line, car has a mind of it's own
So yeah, while it has a small fanbase, and the core title for it's flaws was not so bad, this DLC has brought all the games weaknesses to the surface. This game wants the community following of Forza, and craves the coolness of Driveclub, and fails on all levels.
Many of us got the game based on the broken promise that after years of awful titles, this NFS would be the game NFS fans deserved, if this is what I deserve, I have to ask, what in life did I do wrong to EA? We researched the Achievements, it was a simple list, many of us completed it. Now for 95% of the community, we will never max this game.
What can we do? Not much, but I advise everyone who feels as strongly about EA's slap in the face as I do, to visit these links and voice your opinions.

So far EA has latched onto one guy in their defence..Azazel has managed 30+ golds, and he's not afraid to show us either, EA's response...basically, if he and other NFS elitists can do it, we all can.
