    The Stuff Thread

    I have to listen Offspring every now and then, as it brings good memories from my childhood. Sitting on the floor front of the tv playing crazy taxi, while this plays in game. I used to skate also when I was kid. I think the happiest moment of my life was when I first time landed a perfect kickflip.

    FFB fixed? No, we need VIBRATIONS!!

    133 Fiats are fastest cars, but we still have lots of front engine rwd cars. I had e21 bmw, mk1 Escort and Fiat 600, which had 1.6L Nissan engine. I sold my race cars to get money for my american cars, but lately I have had weak moments when I really would like to buy a Chevrolet Caprice stw for folkracing.

    rwd rallycross (autocross) cars would be nice.

    BMW power! Those cars sounds so good. Would love to have one in the game.

    I have tyre friction at 150. I have noticed that the tyre itself doesn't do anything, but something like that the physisc try to imitate. This is OT, but I have to show this picture. It's about 10 years old and it has my e21 bmw in it from that time when I used to still compete. It shows neat tyre flex.

    This. I was so excited for Sweden as it's quite similiar to Finnish stages in winter, but in the end it was just a bitter disappointment as the rwd cars doesn't handle as they should on snow/ice. So now I keep driving Polish stages.

    I agree, also there is no weight on the wheel when stationary in start. IMO it would be just stupid to have road noise for example on spain, when you can't see anything on the road that would cause that. And I have to wrestle with the wheel every now and then on asphalt because of tyre flex and weight transfer. I drive mostly with mk2 Escort and i'm not that good on asphalt, so I tend to replace speed with fun, so I throw it sideways quite a lot and when it gains traction again the wheel tends to snap out of hand if I don't have a good grip. Again, when i'm driving with mk2 Escort I can notice how it gains traction while in a long slide and then pulls it straight. I can't speak about rallycross, because I don't drive those that much and I have no real life experience with those type of cars.

    I drive mostly polish stages as they are fast flowing stages and there the gravel physics are 5/5 IMO. Australia on the other hand is something that I hate with passion. I just can't get good flow there and end up in the tree or something in a easy corner. And Australia is a nightmare with rwd cars. But still the New England is strange, as it doesn't have soft gravel, so why does the car just snap oversteer when trying to have neat little slide through the corner. Mostly that happens when the front wheels are in apex/inside line of the corner. Is it same for you? edit: I forgot to mention that yes it does that (snap oversteer) on other locaions too, but I notice it best in New England

    I had to try that car. I had no problem with it, but i'm not a big fan of it neither. I have noticed that all rwd cars tend to do handle strange sometimes when sliding them in New England. It feels like the front tires "sinks" in the road or something and then it snaps it totally sideways without any warning.

    It's not meant to be driven straight. Except in straights.

    New ffb impressions

    90% of vibrations I can feel on my own car when driving on smooth asphalt is from engine and drivetrain, but I drive stupidly loud v8 with semi lopey cam, so yeah, it causes quite lot vibrations. On older rally cars (at least) you should feel small engine vibration on steering wheel, which is totally absent atm. But otherwise I really like the new ffb.

    Camaro and Firebird are actually same car. Pontiac just used their own engines. And yes that basicly is 70's car, but that particular trans-am is 81 so last year for that model. And 77-78 had different nose cone.
