"Chirping" rally cars and DiRT 4/Rally
I was watching Rally Mexico and some "season reviews" of some WRC rounds of the 2000s-era recently and got a dose of this beautiful (imo) chirping-kind-of-noise some rally cars produce while braking/decelarating/lifting the throttle (don't know how the noise is produced it, just trying to think about situations where it's happening) in the process. The videos/coverage then ignited my desire to fling cars off cliffs in Dirt Rally again while vigorously trying to rally like the guys in the WRC. That's when I noticed a disturbingly high lack of chirping in this (already) great sounding game.
For example, choosing the 2001 Impreza, I was full of joy as the car actually chirped beatifully as it slowed for the start line. However, as I was actually driving on stage, it didn't really chirp again in the same ear flattering manner.
So I was just wondering about this absence of the noise in DiRT Rally during the stage, while it does seem present on some cars (like the 2001 Impreza) while they slow down for the start line.
Is the sound actually quite rare/tied to a driving style I am unable to do, or is it actually not produceable on stage in DiRT Rally?
And -in the latter case- what are the odds of (or opinions on?) more (audible) chirping on stage in DiRT 4 by appropriate -aka producing the noise irl- cars?
