According to the theory of plate tectonics, the Earth's surface crust consists of a number of huge continental plates and a number of equally large oceanic plates, most of which are in continuous motion.
Portions of this plate are composed of some of the most ancient rocks found on Earth, dating from the Precambrian (about 4.65 billion to 570 million years ago), which are found today in the Angara Shield of eastern Siberia, in much of the Arabian Peninsula, and in India south of the Indo-Gangetic plain.
In south-eastern Asia, the situation is complicated by the relative movements of the Pacific and Indian Ocean plates, and that movement helps explain the northern-southern trending highlands of mainland south-eastern Asia and the volcanic activity that characterizes most of the Indonesian archipelago.

Car sounds are your typical "Vroom vroom," which is to be expected, and they do falter here and there (a car can go from red limit to nothing without a winding out sound, but most racing games have this same problem).
