    How is DR2 in Steam VR these days?

    Right now DR2.0 runs better than any other racing sim I have on SteamVR.
  2. I don't know what's wrong with me, but I'm done. I crashed on the second turn. That's probably the last race for me this season.
  3. Yeah with another tarmac rally still left, I'm pretty sure there's no hope of a title for me this season. I'd have to pull off a miracle to make up for 2 consecutive retirements. The worst part is that I've lost motivation to drive after these last two.
  4. I was seriously considering not even trying Monte because I hate it with a burning passion. I should have listened to my hate. Retire in SS2. **** Tarmac. I'm probably out of the running at this point. 2 Tarmac rallies in a row killed my spirit completely. I've spent more time practicing on Monte Carlo than any other rally but it's done me no good at all. I still crash and when I don't. I'm horribly slow even though I feel like I'm on the edge all the time.. HUGE waste of effort. I can't feel the road, I'm always going from massive understeer to spinning out with no sign that it's happening.
  5. Had to happen at least once.. Naturally on a ******* tarmac stage. Puncture on SS1, no replacement. Game over. I hate tarmac.
  6. I was not feeling a rhythm in Greece. Never had confidence throughout. Not sure if it's a setup issue or just an off evening, but I felt like the car was just fighting me at every corner and my mind was wandering instead of focusing on the notes.
  7. I honestly didn't expect to do that well in Group A. RWD seems to be where my strength is but maybe some of that throttle discipline is helping my AWD game. I still feel like I'm a mere student of the four wheels. SS1-SS3 went very well. I seem to manage understeer in wet conditions pretty well, despite understeer being my kryptonite. I was just behind Yabby through the first leg. The shock of going from worn tires on mud to fresh tires on dry gravel really jarred me in SS4 though, and I struggled to keep up with Yabby after losing a bit of confidence from biting the inside walls of a few corners, underestimating my grip. Still did decently on SS4-SS6. Then I once again got jarred by the sudden grip in SS7, and rolled the car by mounting the inside of a corner, again underestimating my grip. Managed to recover though SS7 was my weakest time overall by far. I'm really enjoying the Legacy, curious how well it competes with the Delta overall. Time will tell!
  8. My first car was a first generation Legacy sport, and they nailed the feeling of the Legacy. The sound of the engine and turbo, the turbo lag, and the interior of it in VR actually gives me a strange nostalgia. Granted this thing drives like my Legacy if it were brand new and perfectly tuned, but the feeling is real. Gave me chills up my spine.
  9. I'd hate to see Finland get the boot for the next championship as there's nothing like it, but I'll support however @SkyRex chooses to decide. I think we're fairly confident that the Legacy will fall under Group A, so if that holds true, I say we go Group A for next round.
  10. I'd have to agree with @SkyRex about Germany for the same reasons. We don't know what the Scotland stages will play like, so it's not really fair to put Wales on the cutting block just because it's on the same landmass. Wales is such an international icon of rally. In terms of personality, there's nothing even similar to Finland, so I would definitely hate to see it go. Dirt Rally 2.0's simulation is pretty on-point except in the tarmac department, so if any stages have to go, I'd vote for the Tarmac ones.
  11. @SkyRex Since my first car was a first generation Subaru Legacy turbo, I'm gonna wanna drive the Legacy in the next championship. Since we don't know what class the Legacy will be in (though I suspect Group A), I'd prefer to wait until we know what class it's in. Thanks again for hosting these championships! These really invigorate my excitement for rallying.
  12. Apparently my Spain run wasn't as bad as it felt. In hindsight that makes my post look arrogant. I suppose that's a risk when I drive before anyone else. Regardless of whether the next championship starts before or after Flatout comes out, I won't pick R5 or Group B (4WD) since it feels like every other club does both those classes only. I'm considering maybe RallyGT, Group B (RWD), or 2000cc. 🤷‍♂️
  13. Edit: Le Spam is gone! Thanks PJ!
  14. You all shouldn't have any trouble overtaking me in Spain. My run just emphasized how bad I am at tarmac rallying. 😂 Aside from what felt like sluggish and clumsy driving, I had 3 spins and 2 crashes which I was lucky to get away from. Tarmac in DR2.0 just doesn't click with me at all, and it's especially worse with fresh, soft tyres. I have the hardest time estimating my grip because I can't feel when I'm losing it. I do better on tarmac on worn tyres or in the rain because at least then I can feel where the limits are. But the acceleration and braking grip you gain from soft tyres is too good for me to just go with mediums. Even though I drive more smoothly on tyres with less grip, and I'm less likely to crash, I'm still slower than someone that's on softs regardless. (Softs are OP af)
