    I always wondered one thing. He said this is the original car, the real one with which McRae made history but what happens if a journalist like this guy destroys the car while driving it ? This car should be one of a kind if his claims are true. It is not you can buy one back and that is it.

    Oh, and if Group B was "just for men", how does Michelle Mouton fit in?

    Nobody said that modern rally drivers are ___ compared to what Group B drivers were.

    The fact is simple here and this is the reason of the statement of Kankkunen at the time:

    Driving a Group B car was madness. They were extremely difficult to drive and surely not something for everybody. On top of it Group B cars were the most dangerous and the technology gap with the modern rally cars is immense. 

    I am sure what Kankkunen wanted to say it is simply that modern rally cars are A LOT easier to handle because of the tremendous better technology they have.
    Basically It all translates to Group B is for fearless and insanely skillful drivers while modern WRC cars are a lot, a damn lot, easier to drive and it takes less skills (and guts) to drive them.

    and this opinion is frequently held by people who weren't even old enough to see a Group B car in action

    I am class 1975. I was 12/13 when Kankkunen was racing. Even though I am old enough I have never seen a Group B rally with my eyes I admit it but I saw hours and hours of videos. Only playing with a Group B car in Dirt Rally 2.0 it is hard enough to show the gap with modern rally cars.

    I am disappointed to see anyone on this forum repeating this stupid statement. I expect the posters here to know better. 

    You should tell Juha Kankkunen 4 times World Rally Champion that he says stupid things. You play video games, he raced a 500 hp rally car in the 80s and 90s. 
    You know better for sure dude

    I'm just glad I'm not the only one with a celeb crush on Aniston.

    Even Jennifer Aniston (she is still hot af btw !) is getting older like the rest of the humans. That's why I am not anymore "excited" with people like Claudia Schiffer or Cindy Crawford 🙂

    Since you cannot delete a post on this forum and I have made a wrong claim the only way is to write Post deleted or anything similar. If you have a better alternative please share it with me

    Sorry, but an R5 has nothing to do with an WRC spec car. Maybe only the base chassis is the same, but everything else is completly different.

    Again so the reason why DR 2.0 does not have the official top cars of The World Rally Championship is because they do not own a license correct ? 
    Could you please guys be so kind to link me to a document that shows and explains how classes are organized and which cars are in those classes ?
    I thought the R5 was the top of the top in the world rally championship .. I have been very wrong then 😞


  7. So I am definitely confused here lol. 

    Correct me if I am wrong. What I understand from you is: Dirt Rally 2.0 does not have any of the Word Rally Cars because it does not have a license for it. While it has World Rally Championship cars because (R5) those dont require a license. So what exactly are the R5 cars or the R2 cars ?

    Which are the cars that are going to officially compete in the Word Rally Championship of 2020 then and what is the difference between those and the R5 version ?

    Wait what? Why are you talking about WRC license? We were talking about WRX. And dirt rally 2 doesn’t have any current WRC cars.

    I know that is why I have said "I understand the license is for Rallycross and not WRC.". 
    To me what does not make sense at all is why WRC gave the license to an horrible lame game like WRC8 instead of the amazing Dirt Rally 2.0. 

    "
    And dirt rally 2 doesn’t have any current WRC cars."  

    Do you mean the cars of WRC 2019 or WRC 2020 ?

    Dirt Rally 2.0 for WRC 2019 is missing the Hyundai i20 coupe WRC and the Toyota Yaris WRC. While it has the Citroen C3 WRC (R5) and the Ford Fiesta WRC (R5)

    For WRC 2020 DR 2.0 is missing the Hyundai i20 coupe WRC and the Toyota Yaris WRC. 

    I dont get what you mean for "does not have any of the WRC cars" ....

    The game was first released in February 2019, the 2019 cars did not exist at the time of the games release

    The cars for the WRC 2019 are Citroën C3 WRCFord Fiesta WRCHyundai i20 Coupe WRCToyota Yaris WRC

    The game has only the Citroen and the Ford Fiesta. I understand the license is for Rallycross and not WRC. 

    Why the hell did they give the license of the WRC 2019 to WRC8 ? 

    That game sucks badly. Gameplay is awful. Physiscs are ridiculous and the cars seem glued to the track .. totally unrealistic. On top of that those losers do not even have VR and you all know how it works in 2020 .. NO VR NO BUY.

    If you make a game that does not support VR you are not in business you are only something useless and pathetic from the past. 

    You have to agree with me that WRC 8 is just awful. I have tried it and got shocked by how bad it is.

    I dont understand how did they manage to get the license from WRC with a game so bad ? Or maybe it is all about money and WRC does not care how good the game is but only cars about how much money the gaming companies are willing to pay ....

    They would obviously have all the cars if they could, it’s not like codemasters decided they’re not very keen on Hyundai so they didn’t bother putting them in

    So what is the exact issue ? Licensing of the cars with the cars manufacturers ?

  12. @dani211212 I understand you can be a rally fanatic and really like to go there and see it yourself. I understand the adrenaline and the emotions perfectly.
    What I don't understand is how people do not get the simple concept that human life worth more than emotions. You cannot deny how incredibly unsafe the place those spectators are is. 
    Then also think about the drivers. You killed a man because someone is so stupid to put himself in the middle of your racing track. The driver has to live all his life with that nightmare and the idea he killed someone. 

    I dont think I am being absurd or exaggerated here. Human life safety has to be the priority.

    The mother of the idiots is always pregnant. I will never stop stressing what are people doing 20 cms from a cars racing track.
    It is just unacceptable and an insult to human intelligence.

    I've always viewed it as - doing good things selfishly is not a bad thing so long as the good deeds are still done. Sure it's a marketing/publicity stunt, but you know what? Everyone still comes out a winner. The family for getting a new car they could never afford, viewers for getting that feel good story they like around the holidays, and Lambo for PR.

    I know there is an old saying about this but I can't remember what it was. In the end though it says doing good, regardless of the reason, is still doing good.

    Straight to the point @Mike Dee. Exactly what I mean.

    i dont pretend its my opinion. fake stories or promotions sales i hate. the people were used to show lambo in a good light to drive sales. the only difference is people actually believe this kinda stuff. as said doing at christmas as well makes it even worse. its like we could do this in october....no wait ! save it until christmas for ultimate exposure. there was no kind hearted thing about it. its a set up to sell. if you like it fair enough. nothing wrong with that. i dont. its fake. its social media bs people swallow and promote which i hate.

    im sure the kid did enjoy it. fair enough. im glad he doesnt realize why it was done.

    Still the kid's happiness is real and the one of his father too. They are not fake characters/actors. They are real. That's why it is a nice thing. It is in front of you and still you don't see it.

    Who cares if Lamborghini decided they could make money out of it. They are not an ONG. It is a company and they behave exactly like all the other companies in the world. Scope = Make money. I don't know in which world you live but on planet earth that's how it is man.

    yes and look how the video goes out at christmas.....if only the true generosity wasnt a promotion event. id give it a like.

    We all know that we live in that kind of world you know ? But sometimes it is also nice to pretend a bit and being happy for the kid and his very good father. Little buddy had the best present and experience of his life. Look at his face ! He is nothing but pure joy !
