When I played this at the EAG, I thought it played like a sack of spuds - it was nothing like the original handling wise - to me it felt like it was a single servo for the feedback.

However I got the manual and it is using the same feedback system as the original Daytona (particle/clutch motor) - so maybe the UK version has a single servo motor, and the Japan is more like the original. The feedback board is also an emulation of the original daytona feedback board.

Either way the game is not a patch on the original..

Chinese developers are cheaper than Europeans for sure, but the games from China and Taiwan are not good.

Crazy Speed - People actually laughed at this - I like how they bootlegged the Sega gullbox seat from M3 racers.

Golden Gun - well I didn't hear any good report on this - it is the HOTD4 code pretty much recycled, even re-use some of the original textures and one of the enemies is the same. 2Spicy guns painted gold is cheap also..

I alot of the newer lindbergh games where out-sourced projects - Rambo was done by Polygon Magic (same company behind Maximum Tune for Namco), Hummer (I believe this was done in part by some Korean team), but down as SegaNS developed. Obviously it is hard to tell who does what as there is no AM teams.
