comment Do AI cars “cheat”?
Although I have to say, at least in Grid I've yet to observe the AI drivers slow down noticeably to let me catch up... Maybe the rubber band only stretches in one direction?

I'd encountered dynamic difficulty adjustment before in other games, but not in racing games (of which I've mainly played the Colin McRae series). Thanks for the explanation!

comment Do AI cars “cheat”?
@MichaelMadsen I hadn't heard the term "rubberband AI" before, but looking it up, it seems to explain what I've experienced in the game. If you want to expand the comment into an answer, with maybe some relevant links, I'd be happy to mark it as accepted.

comment Why are expected delivery times given as a range?
I tried a couple of deliveries where I finished within the expected time range (pretty close to the start of the range), but didn't notice any bonuses. What does it show up as on the mission completion screen?

I guess I speed a lot, then, because most of the time I'm several hours early :)

comment Why are expected delivery times given as a range?
Interesting. I certainly haven't noticed this. In fact, I just finished a delivery ~5 hours early and my total payout (sans damage penalty) was exactly as originally advertised. Do you have any specific examples where you've been paid less for arriving too early?

So what happens in real life when a driver delivers the cargo early? My experience with truck driving is limited to ETS2 and GTA: San Andreas...
