Anyone know if there are any different game modes? The previous installment was sort of like a sandbox racer which was very fun. But aside from some GUI improvements and a new setting, I'm not sure what's different?

Edit: Here's some info I found on the difference in mechanics...

"As someone who spent far too much time with Trackmania Forever's Stadium environment and F1 inspired cars, getting use to Canyon's new handling system takes some time. Vehicles in previous iterations always held a hefty weight -- as if all four wheels were planted firmly to the road -- which gave them a sense of durability and solidity that typified Forever's style.

Canyon holds its own identity though, and cars are far more agile than they have been before; they're light, nimble, and they still offer a satisfying sense of traction with the tarmac. They're also top heavy and prone to toppling over in inexperienced hands. It's a welcome trade-off though, as with vehicles now lighter, Trackmania 2 is a much faster game, and vehicles always feel like they're only just under control, and could spin out at any moment."
