  1. While this would be a really nice feature, let's be realistic for a moment. It took Codemasters a YEAR from DR2.0 release to even get the correct gearbox for each car. In DR1 several cars have wrong amount of gears. Primary school level stuff like having the correct gearbox with the correct amount of gears is too difficult for Codies, so maybe we should no request anything too complicated. Maybe something like, first thing first kind of approach? Try getting the rudiments right first, then maybe they could consider the slightly more advanced stuff.
  2. Yeah, having club events restricted to a single car would be a great feature, would bring a whole new addition to clubs and would bring a whole new life to fun-but-uncompetitive cars like 240Z, RS200, Escort Cosworth, Camaro, 911 SC RS, Impreza S4 etc. A lot of clubs are doing that sort of thing nominally but since it's not actually enforced it's a suggestion rather than a real restriction. Not a whole lot of options unfortunately unless you are going to kick everyone who doesn't use the one car, which doesn't work so well for several reasons. We could do an agreement with those who are on the forum to restrict a championship to a single car, or exclude the obvious fastest cars in a class for a championship. Not everyone in the club is going to do that obviously but could consider trying it anyway?

    Championship Reset

    Nope. This has been reported by countless players since about 10 minutes after the game was first released but nothing has ever been done about it. Racenet seems to be working relatively well in the last few weeks though, that's something at least. Still the possibility exists that your career championship can be reset any time, with no possibility to recover it since it's all server-side. Local savegames could have a backup save, DR1 had it, but Codies server-side saving has no backup. I still don't have a clue what the deal is about the ENTIRE championship being reset. Like if you complete 71 stages without problems, progress from 71 stages is saved, then there's a problem on the 72nd stage, why does it reset the entire effing championship instead of only losing progress from the one stage? Makes no sense. Also just what in the hell is this "local save data" considering My Team is entirely server-side and has no local savegames????

    Version 1.16 Update Discussion

    Can you find Waldo from this screenshot? (hint: you should be able to see the shift lights. They are behind the steering wheel which is precisely where they should not be. I managed to "fix" it by making the driver position as if the driver was a giraffe, not ideal but driveable once you get used to it) Also the welding on the rollcage on the left side looks a little bit awful. Car drives and sounds pretty nice though.

    Version 1.16 Update Discussion

    So Fiesta didn't unlock for anyone in My Team it seems. Same here. Was thinking of doing the two R5 weeklies with Fiesta but nope. Also UI info is still wrong on lots of cars despite that the patch overwrote ALL cars. Would have been a pretty good opportunity to fix that since they were all re-downloaded but nope. Still UI says that M1 is front engined, 911 is mid-engined, Impreza supercar is manual etc. Might seem inconsequential but you'd think professional developers who work on cars would be embarrassed not to get such things right. "Hi my name is Dave, my job is to make cars for a rally sim, and I believe BMW M1 is front-engined!" Just, no.

    Dirt rally 2.0 sound mod

    The descriptions by this headrushmayor dude are barely legible and there is no preview videos or screenshots of any of his mods. I have asked him to give more information about his mods but nope. So what kind of difference does this mod do to sounds?

    Livery mods were perfectly safe before and could be used in online and career. But now I wonder if we will all get VAC banned for using skins

    Why is Ford Escort Cosworth so slow?

    Of course I have adjusted the gears. So the car acts as 6-speed to me, the same as if it only had 6 gears. Also not 100% certain of this but my gut impression is that with clutch+H-shifter, removing the 7th gear from constant use actually improves acceleration since you will be spending more time accelerating and not shifting all the time, which is considerably slow in clutch+H-pattern mode as opposed to sequential without clutching. I'm pretty sure the gearbox isn't where the problem lies with Cossie being way off the pace.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 World Series - 2020 Season

    Whole New England run I though Codies forgot the shift lights again. Instead, they placed them behind the steering wheel so you can't see them, except in VR when there's a jump. Classic Notice how in the real car they are well _above_ the steering wheel. Not behind it. Because the shift lights aren't much use if the driver can't see them, in the real world where you can't turn the steering wheel off or have HUD floating in the air Hate to be so negative about what otherwise looks like a really nice car, but it's just baffling how time and time again content additions contain such blatant flaws. And in what is planned to be the final update for the game, so the usual "let the players beta test them and fix whenever, maybe" approach doesn't really work here

    Why is Ford Escort Cosworth so slow?

    I have made a similar suggestion too in the past, Evo VI doesn't really fit with the much older GrA cars. Though for the late 90s class I'd suggest Escort WRC instead of Focus. Ford converted the GrA Cossie to world rally car spec as a stopgap car while they were developing the Focus (which was designed to world rally car spec from scratch) and the WRC Cossie was actually a pretty decent car, Sainz and Kankkunen got some good results with that. And since it was based on the GrA version Codies could use that as base. Then also split the 2000cc clas in two, like early 2000s (Focus Mk1, Impreza 2001, 206 etc) and late 2000s (C4, Focus mk2 etc). Shoving too many cars into a class where they don't fit and aren't competitive isn't the best use of the cars. Don't even get me started on H3, why the 240Z and Ascona are there I truly have no idea. Maybe the Group A could use some rethink, but so does the individual performances of the Group A cars. Just makes no sense to me that the Lancia is so enormously faster than Cossie.

    Why is Ford Escort Cosworth so slow?

    To me it's 6-speed since my H-shifter only has 6 gears so I couldn't use the 7th gear even if I wanted to. Which I don't. Cossie just feels clumsy and overweight to me, nowhere near as nimble around corners as the Lancia in particular
  14. I kinda like the Cossie, especially after it got new great sounds, but the sad truth is it's pitifully slow compared to others in the class, Lancia in particular. Why is this? I'm not expert on the real-life car but looking at WRC results it sure wasn't a completely useless car. It got 5 wins and several more podiums in its first season, when the aging Lancia was still in use by Jolly Club, and in 1996 Carlos Sainz with Ford battled it out against Colin McRae for the "best of the rest", finishing only 3 points behind Colin and 11 ahead of the other Subaru driver. So you'd think Cossie should be about equal to the Lancia and Impreza 1995? The balancing in Group A doesn't make much sense to me anyway. Making it imbalanced for the sake of realism would make some sense, so would making it unrealistic for the sake of balance, but it seems to very much both imbalanced AND unrealistic. Lancia is the dominant car in the class, Subarus and Mitsu (which realistically should be way faster than the far older GrA cars, this is the car that won WRC drivers' title when Subaru and Ford had ditched their GrA cars and were already using purpose-built World Rally Cars) are there just to make up the numbers and poor Cossie is left to bite the dust. Lancia was of course a hugely successful car IRL but much of that was in the late 80s when it had no serious competition, in the early 90s it was already matched by Celica, and by mid-90s it would have been outdated. Doesn't seem to have much basis on reality that it's so dominant in DR2.0 and runs rings around the poor Cossie especially. So what's the deal? Maybe I'm just missing something here.
