From our measurements, CPU-based skinning was the bottleneck by far (that was maybe 1 year ago), so give a try while disabling animations.
Best solution would be to move skinning to GPU :)

Hi Lionel,

Do I benefit from the new Bullet, if I have a slow CPU? If I have more
than 8 karts on the screen then the framerate is slower. Is it a problem
of the old Bullet because it use the CPU?

Rgds,

Christian
