Woah, the torus would ROCK! We have to try that once, eh guys. I dunno if it's possible, is LDA taking notes?

don't know how the torus would be for race/battle but the view ought to be something else. imagine your on the inside the 'hole' you see some one else a fair distance up the 'arch' and you launch a cruise after him...

The terrain works like an offset from a plane. There's no way in the existing engine to have it offset from some other geometric shape.
