Dirt4 v dirt rally

I play NO AIDS on thrustmaster rs 500 only on clutch and 7 speed h shifter and ive done bit of rallying on network q stage.  Ive loved  both games games but a fusion would be ideal.  I found that dirt4 had a slightly more technical approach and bit more effort was needed but was worth it with weight transfer and sharper edge of car control to unleash full potential( great ).  However where are the spectacular jumps gone from rally?
Personally i prefer the more technical driving in dirt4 and also the graphics are not as bland as rally but still I miss that fun from launching to the air which real rally cars do.
Keep up the great work codemasters STICK WITH RALLYING LADS

    The two games need mixing, use the dirt 4 format but with the dirt rally stages.
    But give us more country’s and more stages

    Irish road events would be perfect

    Dirt4 already is a mix of dirt3 arcade and dirt rally sim.
    And it is just a big mistake they tried it.

    I'd say fixing the "flying so far in the air" is one of the main improvements in D4, was the only gripe I had with DR, but each to their own.

    Dirt Rally's V2 physics were used as a basis.

    While I prefer the overall gravel feeling of DR, Dirt 4's greatest improvement is when the speed increases. That is why I think Michigan in D4 feels more like Finland than Finland does in DR. You feel the weight of the car coming over blind crests and you have confidence in the car.

    I still think gravel is too grippy in D4 in low and mid speed corners, and the RWD's make me cry compared to DR.

    In flat areas like Dirt Fish the cars feel predictable and convincing but when you hit the stages it changes a bit so I'm just speculating it might be the road surfaces and odd charachteristics of the roads that can make D4 feel strange at times.

    I kinda wish we could import a stage from DR to D4 and compare.

    i think inertia and mass is still way off in both titles.The cars need more weight and tire choices to be implemented ,and then  ,maybe then the weight and feel would come back.
    Right now in both titles ,cars come to halt and slide too little and you can not sustain a "weighty" slide at all. Tarmac is far behind too.You can just "snap" correct any car and they wont push with weight.
    That said ,i enjoy both titles and own 4 copies ,but physics need quite a bit still.Cant get RFPE physics working ,so i cant comment on that yet.

    Im not feeling this about cars are not weighted right and its too grippy. If the car isnt power sliding for u then Idont think your pushing enough. Also the weight im feeling from the rs 500 wheel is very realistic 1080 lock also is great also dab on the brakes before locking into corners creates great oversteer with clutch kicking.
    Turn the aids off
    1 thing idont miss from dirt rally is the stalling whilst braking over small bumps may be a reason why dirt4 keeps to the ground more?????

    I'm quite positive that the vast majority here is running without driving aids. :P

    @davecc Do you think Porkhammer is a dev? The way you type is extremely hard to read.

    I don't think powersliding and dirt 4 should be in the same sentence. It's impossible with at least half of the cars to powerslide and that's with tuning with extreme oversteer in mind. Still didn't help. Rallycross is great though..

    1080 lock is way to much 4 a rally car and not realistic, but i agree i feel the weight of the cars ,if you stall when braking give it gas or make you braking lock higher. im confused whhy DR has better colors lighting and textures than D4 only the spectators and marshalls look better and the car froim home screen. its like x1x gives hdr to DR but not D4 at least on my tv, interiors look alittle better but in car view is waaay to high  in D4 doesnt feel liking im sittng in a car on the 1st  in car view but im liking d4 esp the immersion of running a team, branding, the working odometer is great detail this dirt pulls u in, and create a stage ups the bar 4 rally game  cant wwait to try rallycross and see if my 1600 opel set from DR translates.
