  1. This is quite simply pathetic now. The only chance I've had to play this week so I sit down to complete round 2 of the Solberg cup only to find that the servers are totally unusable again. There just is no point carrying on any more with club events. I'm absolutely furious that I cannot use what I've paid for. No point loggin anything with support as they won't acknowledge Codemasters epic fail in all of this. Believe me I've tried. Not much point putting this up here either as they either don't care or the Racenet system is so fundamentally flawed that it's not possible to scale it up t
  2. Hey @PJTierney, does that mean that future DLC is still in the pipeline and this isn’t the end of the road? And broken record, but is there any plans to add any additional co-drivers in the future?
  3. Called it in the other thread! 😁 Shame no Derek Ringer @PJTierney?!
  4. And the McRae rally challenge is back this year at Knockhill just down the road. Yep, something might just be coming this year thats a little more special, and that DR2.0 is onboard with and contributing to.. 🤞🏻 For UK viewers, look out for Chris Harris running L555 BAT in this series of Top Gear too
  5. Has anyone seen the image of Ott laid out at the side of the car? Hope he’s ok and they’re not keeping a lid on anything (for the sponsors) that’ll keep him out for any rallies. Hopefully just badly winded but raised concern in my head.. one h*ll of a crash. The WRC+ service was a must for me... and I don’t regret it but there are a couple of issues that they need to address as a priority. There’s a lot of in-car coverage and I realise the reasons for this.. Night, weather, cost etc. All impacts the use of the choppers and drones... but external shots are all important and can be l
  6. Just saying! 😂 @PJTierney ‘questioning’ UK locations just ramped up my hopes.. Come on CM.. lets have a right good go through the Grizzlies or Dalby in a Legacy with Derek Ringer calling the shots!! All with a flutter in the stomach and a little bit of love for Mr ‘flat over crest’.. Spot on!
  7. Thanks @ApexAzimuthand @Dytut. Good encouragement. I’ll see about how I sort a video of my plodding through a stage and post it. Well, where to start. I think I will have shortcomings in all of those areas and more. My speed on the straights depends on the location and how well I’ve managed to tune out the bounce of the car without turning it in to a sofa. I am however too cautious and often brake too early. Haven’t quite nailed putting it on it’s nose, just at the right braking point and all the while controlled. I think my cautious approach has come from taking the m
  8. Keep it up PJT! Just found this thread and read with great interest and will continue to follow your progress. I too have a Fanatec setup which I struggled with setting up correctly recently so will be interested to see the tweaks a CM insider and more experienced sim racer continues to make to his setup. I'm trying to work out how to catch the guys in the forum club and have no idea how they've gotten so fast so might have a dabble at your control stage and see what time I can get. Good luck!
  9. Jebus indeed. if you're spinning and still that fast I think I may as well sell up now. For the first time with the sierra I felt I'd got a setup that was working ok. I also had some off road time penalties but only a few. If I could look at how I was driving and know what I was doing to be nearly a full 4 minutes down then rolling the sleeves up and getting on would seem more worthwhile. If you guys at the top are driving to the notes and not from memory, and aren't literally taking every cut on the stage then I just wish I knew what on earth I needed to do just to improve a li
  10. I’m still finding my way in the club and didn’t appreciate how many people were taking part. 🙂 I’m hooked far more than I should be on this game so I’ll be hoping to take part in the whole championship and future ones. I’ll be looking out for you now on the next rally. Now, how to get some more traction out of this lump of Cossie...
  11. Ah well, someone has to be last I guess? so I've fulfilled that place. And if you're gonna be last, may as well be badly last. 🙄 I know I have a long way to go yet, but can't help feeling I'm making a mess of the setup. Consistently slow, still some mistakes, absolutely no traction out of the corners and tires completely shredded at end of SS3 and SS6 in Sweden. I know nobody else's setups are ever gonna be a perfect fit for me as it's down to the driving style, but how come Skyrex's and GTR's setup philosophies are typically exactly the opposite? Both fast guys so I expected s
  12. Thank you @ApexAzimuth I'm a keen rally fan, but there has been a significant gap in my gaming history that I finally closed off last year (Colin McRae 2.0 before that). I keep telling myself that it'll come and I keep practicing. I do force myself to do the daily and weekly events, and like any true collector I had to get every rally car and have them all fully upgraded as another way to make me drive all cars. I agree that RWD helps my heavy right foot which then translates positively when I go back to my trusty Polo, which is my most competitive car. In fairness, I was perhaps
  13. I made many mistakes on many stages! Haha. I'm running at the highest difficulty in career and historic and I'm competitive, but I can't keep up with any of you guys! 🤨 I'm starting to feel frustrated that I just can't seem to find the key to unlock the next jump up in my skill level. I'm not short on practice, and I have recently changed my wheel, but I can't use that as an excuse. I know the philosophy of running through the stage slow, but even then there is an accident around the next corner just waiting to nail my radiator. The Montee was my first club rally so fingers cro
