GRIP: Combat Racing, the Steam early access racer which takes more than a few cues from the PlayStation 1’s Rollcage, has benefited from a large update which improves physics, adds a new 6-wheeled “Terra Rhino” car and 4-player split screen support, and more.

According to developer Caged Element, the update comes as a result of lots of private testing and is long overdue.
