Not really. They'll probably improve slightly, but not very much. I don't mind the load times that much. It makes for a nice break in between races.

I discovered a month or so ago the wonders of utilizing my spare time while waiting for a game to load. Spend those 30 second chunks putting away clothes, cleaning the desk, or doing some push ups and you can have a very clean room and get noticeably fitter with literally almost zero effort

Thats a good idea except for the push-ups and the cleaning......
