The problem was so evident that they had to depict the '89 bat-mobile using some sort of grappling hook just to make a sharp turn. I loved the way the tumbler moved especially in that big police chase.
It was the 1st time i saw a batmobile depicted on screen that i believed could actually move like that in the real world.
