Let's talk about Rallycross (comparing DiRT4 to reality)
So, everyone is pretty pleased with RX, some even say it's perfect.
I think it is good, but surely not perfect, especially not in the wet.
I just compared some real times for Holjes (dry) with D4 times.
Best time this year by Petter for a 4 lap heat session : 2:51.535
Best time by me (Polo RX) for a 4 lap heat session: 2:41.xxx
I could have been faster if I nailed every corner within in my abilities. But my driving compared to Petter looked really sloppy. And the fast guys out there are surely even better.
So there is quite some difference between reality and D4. Does anyone care?
And I think D4 is even more off when it comes to wet conditions. There is still so much grip in D4 with a soaking wet track... Watch some real wet action, e.g.this:
You barely see them drift at all, they have to drive super clean and cautious. Watch what happens once the car starts to go sideways at 26:55
We have way too much grip in the wet. And I think there is too much grip in dry conditions as well (see the times...). It just doesn't result in smilar complains like rally, because these cars have enough power to cover the lack of real grip (or too much of it). But the times reveal the difference.
Sure, RX in D4 is fun and good enough to make it look and feel realistic.
But I just don't think they nailed it as much and as perfectly as many are saying.
