Almost nothing :)
What does not
Everything with current cvs (0.9.3) Installer fails because it says DirectX 9.0c has to be installed. Game its self (copied from a windows partition) crashes in wined3d (setuplight)
What was not tested
After installing the demo, you have to start with native dinput8.dll:
WINEDLLOVERRIDES="dinput8=n" wine speedDemo.exe
(copy dinput8.dll from a windowspartition into ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32)
If you can't see the menu's 3d part, just go to the advanced video options and set visual threatment to low.
If it crashes at start, or hangs, try changing audio settings in winecfg, that helped for me .
Do NOT select the first car, but the 2nd (Ford Mustang with the flames) otherwise the game will crash.
The game has still lots of shader errors, so actually playing is a bit of an adventure, but for testing it's fun :)
(for example, often the screen goes black ,looks like you drive at night, pushing the brakes helps for that....)
