I often play local multiplayer with my friends. However it's sad to see that it's impossible for us to go online during local multiplayer. If possible, could this feature get added in a future update? http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/smile.gif Games like Magicka and Serious Sam 3 have added a lot of replay value for me because of a feature like this.

The reason local & online play are not possible at the same time is that they actually use different rules.

In online, every bike can race no matter how far away from each other they are, you don't get a fault for being behind the people placed in front of you, and a fault results in resetting at the last checkpoint you passed.

In local, all racers must be on the same screen, if you fall too far behind you get spawned at the next checkpoint, and if you fault you get spawned at the next checkpoint that the player in front of you passes.

Easy: 2vs2 team battle, each team has one screen!

Increase points rewarded for the teams, faults count from both players of one team so an expert and a very bad player can still lose to two good players since you can't carry others that much (only as good as the weakest link http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/wink.gif ).
This means you have to make a decision to either spawn your buddy at the next checkpoint, take the fault and win the race or wait up for him (at this point you can berate him for his lame driving skills http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/dance.gif).
