I dunno man, I'm struggling to play right now. As I said to Xirahii: "(it) runs like a pile of liquid 5#!7 on an ice rink of bouncy balls". Compare it to my previous reports, and it boils down to either something being wrong with my PC (which seems unlikely given other games run without a hitch at 60FPS rock solid) or something in the hotfix has decided to screw me over and make me kill someone. Equally, why does is play like an icy bouncehouse boogaloo? If I wanted to get thrown around this bad I'd fly to Russia and insult a group of old ladies in front of Putin...
Suffice to say, it's not been a good week...
Win 8.1 Pro N x64

Corsair CX750M Semi-Modular PSU
GRIP is running from an SSD. Gameplay captured to local storage via OBS (which has never caused performance issues previously)
Graphics settings in game were adjusted a few times to see if any change could be found. I ended up running with everything either LOW or OFF, VSYNC OFF and resolution down to 1280x720. It looks like garbage but was almost playable...
Highest FPS was 64
Average was 40
When I ran the game at my usual settings (high / epic with FXAA / AO / VSYNC) I could barely get 32 FPS. Previously I had managed to hit 50+ no problems.

There may be an issue due to me running an out-of-date GPU driver (by one freaking version) but my internet is FUBAR'd for downloads right now, with me getting a whopping 6Mbps download, on a 150Mbps line. I'm not happy Bob. NOT, HAPPY...
Note that the smaller file is a single race showing my last run of the night, at the settings used to obtain the results for this post. The larger one is me testing different things to see if it worked.
