crossing through a house looks of course odd. I just wonder why the developers did not try to analyze the patterns of roads, and restricted the car's movement along the roads.

Drives like a tank doesn't come close to describing the handling. Every car I've driven snaps back to straight (barring misalignment). But the small car drives like a Mack truck.

I saw this posted in the new geo blog by Google and it was kinda cool to play around with. I keep wondering what other cool things can be done with that flash api for maps.

This would make an excellent GTA version in Google Earth if many city buildings were rendered 3D. Then all you would need is to set boundaries around the rendered 3D "block" building.
