  1. I personally feel the cars have great weight on tarmac, especially at speed. There is a better feeling now in WRC 9 of the downforce the WRC cars can generate at speed. Brakes can be used to tuck the nose in at speed on bends as well. Gravel feels better to me than DR2 now, specifically how you balance the car through bends. I still feel that braking on gravel is a tad to good, something DR2 does really well. I prefer the FFB as well. It's much improved over 8. Not to take away from DR2 though. I still play it and enjoy the hell out of it, and I feel that WRC 9 has actually made m
  2. Lots of choices...hahah. I am watching the rally myself. So glad there is rally to watch again, and so far Estonia has been pretty good. 👍
  3. I would not recommend using WRC 8 to judge whether or not to buy 9. Just go straight to 9. To many improvements in the physics and dynamics of the cars to be able to judge this way.
  4. I mean, that is your opinion. Didn't sound like that from him in the vid. Yeah, he is beating the AI pretty easy on the hardest difficulty. I have noticed some disparity in the AI over different rallies, Sweden especially. This was noticable in 8 as well. And honestly he wasn't fully settled into the physics and it was obvious. When I use all the things I learned driving in RBR and apply them to WRC 9, I get the cars to handle just the same. Yes, WRC 9 is much more forgiving than RBR, but the techniques learned in RBR directly apply to 9. This was not the case in 8. In no way is it p
  5. So got access this morning to WRC 9. All I will say is.....the driving is really, really good! If you are a rally fan, you should not pass this one up.
  6. No prob. I will say, don't get frustrated with the mod. You have to make the car oversteer with braking and throttle. It takes some getting use to, but it is worth it once your set up right.
  7. https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/wrc-8-mods.173099/ If you have WRC 8 on PC, it is worth a try.
  8. A lot of the more well known sim racing streamers got a press release version of the game over the last week or two. For me they are better to draw an opinion on more than the KT released videos. A few things I noticed immediately..... First, it looks like they have fixed puddle physics, which were absolutely trash in WRC 8. The cars look to actually have better angular momentum and carry inertia properly through tight bends and hairpins, another big issue in WRC8. The cars do not seem to be rocket ships anymore. Accel looks to be more in line with the real cars, or at leas
  9. That's interesting cause I had it on my external SSD at first and it was bad. It's pretty smooth on the internal. That said, with my new setup, I am finding wrc 8 not much fun and am absolutely loving DR and DR 2. I have actually gone back to controller for WRC 8.
  10. My first post here, but I figured I would chime in since I have put a lot of time in on WRC 8. I play on an Xbox One X and had been using a Thrustmaster TX. It took some time to dial in but the FFB was really good once I got the wheel right. If felt better than DR and DR2.0 The default setups and quick adjustments for the car setups suck. To get the cars to actually handle properly, especially at slow speed, you have to setup the suspension and diff for each location. The physics shine once this is done. There still are some strange physics things going on though. There are inv
