    I agree, the way the driver moves his hands in WRC8 is laughable, and it looks very similar in WRC9 I'm afraid. You can't be serious about a modern rally game with this type of animation.

    I messaged them several times about this on their Facebook page and never got a reply. This is one of the reasons why Codemasters is way ahead, is giving fans a forum to voice their opinions and it works. All the newer wrc games are rubbish compared to dirt rally 1 & 2, all they had that’s good is the wrc licence and they can’t even use that properly. I will be very slow to buy wrc 9.

    Maybe that's where the problem is? That it requires more work to change the animations in Skoda and Peugeot?

    It really makes me wonder. Previous updates had very subtle improvements done to some cars, which showed that Codies really care about small detail. So why can't such a big issue as incorrect gear change animation be addressed? Surely it can't be that much of a deal.

    the correct gear change animations should have been done before the cars were added to the game, they know by now that hardcore rally fans will pick up on those little things.

    Wonderful news about the new sound for the Escort.

    By the way, since they're improving gear change animations in some cars, do you think it's possible they will change animations for 2000c Skoda Fabia WRC and Peugeot 206 to what it should look like?

    @PJTierney any chance for that to happen you think?

    i had asked this months back when the 206 was released and nothing has been done about it, thats a bigger animation issue than what has been addressed in this update to the Subaru imo

    '95-'00 is the peak for me. The cars and drivers in the late Group A/early WRCar era, at both the WRC and National level, was an absolutely golden era of rallying in my personal opinion. 

    I would agree with you 100%. Even on national events, especially here in Ireland, the amount of WRC cars was ridiculous. The new cars are amazing but you will never seen them in privateers hands really. Plus the tv coverage was much better back in the day too, don’t like the new format.

    One of my all time favourite onboard clips. The commitment from McRae in Wales that year was absolutely staggering...

    ...though, given how aggressively he was driving, it is no surprise it ended the way it did. 


    Very true, that in car footage gives me chills when I watch it, people can say what they like and how things ended up 2 stages later but Colin was well fired up for it, pity it just didn’t end up differently. 😢

    The S4S5 is actually faster than I was expecting. I am not challenging my fastest 2000cc times in it, but I am not as far off as I was expecting. I find it very predictable to drive. 

    Yeah, I am really hoping a plain WR blue livery will come for the Impreza...


    ...any chance in the next patch @PJTierney? (Which I assume is due next month?)

    I was hoping for a plain blue for every Subaru in the game and plan red for the lancer evo vi

    So there can only be one paint job and only Colin?


    You are certainly right that many details are incorrect, but you must also see that Codemasters has already responded to the criticism in the forum and improved many details in the cars
    Second, you have to see the whole game and Codemasters did a great job there

    I mean the livery with the green on it is awful🤮🤮🤮


    of course they have done a great job, I can not deny that but I just wish the S4 handled abit better and wasn’t in a class with the newer wrc cars

    Yep, quite some understeer. You need to dial in some oversteer and you'll be fine. 

    How would I do that? I have been always using gtr technicals set ups, the S4 drives fine on tarmac but it handles like a pig on gravel, won’t turn in at all. It’s such a same because I thought Codemasters would have done a much better job with it, it sounds and looks for the most part very well. There is a few things that do annoy me with the looks of the car, incorrect gravel wheels on the car, the most of the 98 season the car had the same gravel wheels as the 2001 Impreza, and why does the driver and co-driver have white race suits and helmets when all the other Subaru’s with blue liveries have blue suits and helmets, it looks stupid imo. The selection of liveries are a joke also as with a lot of other cars in the game , no thought put into them but we are all sick of talking about liveries on this forum. The steering wheel annoys me too, should be the same as the 2001 Impreza. It’s a pattern throughout the whole game, Codemasters do fantastic work and then on some small things its like they just couldn’t be bothered, e.g incorrect car sounds, incorrect gear changes, 206 and fabia, cars in wrong categories, lancer and S4 and some shocking liveries on most cars. Don’t even get me started on the difficulty of the A.i in career mode and some of the times that guys are putting in online, ridiculous!! there is no pleasure in driving competitively in the game. On a good note tho, Scotland and the legacy are perfect👍🏻👍🏻 There that’s my rant over😂😂

    Download finally finished and I have just spent 20 minutes driving the new Subaru around Dirtfish and admiring it. It is too pretty to take out on stage, I don't want to bend it! 

    It sounds absolutely awesome too😁😍

  10. Finally got to play it for awhile earlier, both cars are nice, selection of liveries are poor in my opinion for both cars, @PJTierney also why does the driver and co-driver most have blue race suit and helmets when driving the 555 livery?? All other Subaru have them when driving with the blue liveries.

    scotland is lovely also, from what I’ve played so far.

    Hi dumb question,


    Can we race the two new venues as normal rally locations in Career mode without needing to do these scenario based things in the specific cars?



    There is only one new location, and yes you will
