    Looking forward for DR3 ๐Ÿ˜„ ... it's about time, PJ and CM staff start giving hints and small hidden between the lines info about it, so we can all make "dirty gossips" thread great again ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜‰

    Your opinion is as right as others, there isn't a right or wrong opinion in this matter... it's all a question of personal taste, and both ways have pros/cons and can be implemented... It's great we can all discuss these questions with the final objective of helping to improve what is already a great franchise... but... pleaseeeeeee, no BoP ๐Ÿ˜„ ๐Ÿ˜„ ๐Ÿ˜„

    " The Stratos won the championship 3 years in a row, the Delta scored 6 consecutive wins from '87 to '92. These cars in particular are truly rally legends and the game clearly reflects that and it's fine, that's how it should be. As it was said before, most people prefer historic accuracy over artificially balanced classes. The problem is, when these cars are created it's not immediately clear how dominant they would be compared to the other cars in the class. Once it starts showing on the leaderboards, they can't just roll out a patch and nerf them as they'd have to clear the leaderboards as well. It must be quite difficult to code the right amount of 'legend genes' into these cars without making too OP. I like the challenge to take the 'underdog' and see where I can place it, also because I wouldn't take WRs with the rockets anyway " exactly... Adding to that, of course the WR chasers will use the fastest car dragging all the others behind. The higher prevalence of a car in the top pages of the timetables doesn't directly correlate to the difference in times between that car and the others....

    I take exactly the same approach, i know i'm far from the fastest guys out there, although i can consistently place myself in the top 10% in daylies, so i try to have fun with those underdog cars and, by doing so, i rise my own ego by saying to myself i was faster using a slow car than most of the others guys (although eons of time away from the top guys, offcourse) ๐Ÿ˜„...

    The quattro/037 battle would be great to see and it's doable with multiclass clubs... But there are cars wich are slower in real life in every conditions, and, again in my opinion, they should stay the same in the game... i wouldn't want to see the citroen DS be as fast as the mini just for the sake of balance.

    I understand your point and partially agree with it, but i think realistic characteristics and balanced time differences are mutually exclusive options, ie, you can't have both at the same time... that brings us to the 2 approches PJ talked, realistic cars OR balanced cars.

    Please, no BOP in DR... I understand why some guys would like to see more balance between the cars in some classes, but, at least for me, historic accuracy is way more important than equal cars... What is the point of having 10 cars in one class if they all drive the same? Hey, even with the stratos, if it really was that dominant in its years, why not portrait it the same way in the game? More complex options for clubs in order to restrict or enforce the use of certain cars, and a revised class system would help in diminuishing the differences, but, in my opinion off course, the different "personalities" of the cars are one of the core aspect of the game and should still be a strong point in future releases. If someone wants to try to be the fastest in daylies/clubs, then, by all means, choose the fastest car... For those who, like me, are slow, choosing a slower but funnier car and trying to be the fastest with that car is always a good/fun option...
  8. Happened to me too... Let's just wait and see what is comming...

    The physics are clearly wrong... Everyone can see the car is still pivoting around the center axle... Hope Codemasters fix this before DR 12.0 ๐Ÿ˜„ ๐Ÿ˜„ ๐Ÿ˜„

    I would say because those events are special events, designed to promote these cars... If you want to drive others, than please skip these events and stick to the regular ones... I like the way this is done, because a) it keeps the field levelled (in the sense that everyone drives the same car) and b) it's the way to encourage most of us to drive some fun but slow or sluggish cars that we wouldn't pick, if there were other options.

    Steering Wheels, Shifting and Rallycross

    "As far as paddle shifters, I don't think they're allowed in most rally cars. Pretty sure WRC banned them in 2011, minus an exception for Kubica at one point. For rally cars with sequential shifters, which is most modern ones (depends on class, of course, the super production class for example would use a H pattern with a clutch, and anyone else without the money to put a dogbox in) with a push/pull stick around the area where a gear shift would be." Modern WRC cars use a single static paddle shifter with a dual movement (pull and push), to shift up and down...

    "...the final rally car...". Guess those guys praying for the RX hyundai are in luck ๐Ÿ˜„ ... (gossip mode on)

    In my country (Portugal) we are also seeing a increment in clubs, we even have at least one that is "sponsored" by a famous portuguese rally driver wich gives prizes too (a codrive for the first place)...

    Official DiRT Clubs - Vote on 2020 Season

    100% agree with you, we all want that... unfortunatly, i don't think it will happen in this DR iteration... But we can mix and spice things a little, introducing more than one car class in each club, with different events, just what i'm trying to say...

    Official DiRT Clubs - Vote on 2020 Season

    We can do mixed class clubs... what we can't is mixed class events inside the clubs, unfortunatly... I meant, for example, drive with R5 in monte carlo, R2 in spain, Nr4 in USA...
