This thread is such a stark contrast from the comments I've seen on YouTube and on the rest of the internet as a whole. We really are the 1% here.
Honestly, I prefer the previous version of the ride. No, it didn't belong in Future World. But it was a solid attraction with immersive theming that allowed you to believe you were really in a GM testing facility. All of that is gone now. Yeah, I suppose the aesthetics are more pleasing to the eye, but the transition from the indoor tests to the speed test outside is so jarring, it feels like you're going from Test Track 2.0 right back into the original Test Track. And they're two completely different rides, so that doesn't work well at all imo. They should have enclosed that portion in keeping with the rest of the ride... which actually doesn't feel much like a Test Track at all anymore. Maybe if they changed the name I'd feel better about it.
