What are some no rubberband AI racing games on Steam?

I know Blur has no rubberbanding but the company closed down and the game was taken off the Steam store. What are some others?

Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed doesn't seem to have rubberbanding.

I can get ahead occasionally and have no one catch up.

Sonic All Stars has rubber band AI, however it can break (not a bug, designed that way). If you get far enough ahead, the AI will stop doing the rubber band thing allowing you to keep the lead.

every racing game has a rubber band ai if developers are good they can hide the flaws of rubber banding

I have yet to experience blatant rubberbanding in Grid 2.

What exactly is rubberbanding? Giving the drivers in the rear an advantage so they can catch up?

Ugh... I completed the entire game's races on 3 stars then it unlocked 4 stars.
That game has never been played since.

TC if you pick this game up if you want to complete it all do an easy mode run first.

Basically, if you get too far ahead, the computer blatantly cheats in an effort to "stay challenging" or "keep the player entertained".

Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost.

Yeah. Have you ever played a racing game where you got really far ahead, and then you hit a tiny bump, recovered in a second, then suddenly four cars zoom past you? Rubberbanding AI is annoying because they basically just drive faster the further behind they are beyond the standard limits of their vehicle.

BTW, this topic is reminding me of two things.

1- I really despise Canary Mary in CCL.

2- I'm playing a racing game at work (Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift), and I'm trying to get 1st place on each track, since I already got best time on each track. Damn is it tougher than it sounds. You get a free race if you get first place, and GOD FORBID the game lose any money by letting you play a free race! All my cars are maxed out, so it should be reasonably easy, right? HELL NO. I get into first place somehow, and somehow manage to stay there with one Nitro boost left. I pop it with the finish line in site, and suddenly another car pulls ahead of me, and its NOT turbo-ing. And if you do manage to be in first place at the end, the nose of the second place car will be roughly an eighth of an inch behind your cars nose the vast majority of the time. And then, sometimes, it will declare that even though you were ahead, you STILL came in second!

It makes my blood boil just thinking about it. . .
