    It's those kind of details that make me love this sport. How rally cars manage to run so low on tarmac and take all those cuts/crests/jumps without breaking down to pieces never ceases to amaze me.

    Begs the question of what would be faster on a stage. My money is firmly on the rally car (be it WRC+ or WRC)

    R-GT cars do run only on tarmac in the FIA-promoted R-GT Cup, so that makes sense as a choice. They do include Ypres in the calendar though😉

    In the standard FIA points the winner gets 25 points, seven more than second. Codies' points scoring system, having less gap between the different positions, is way less demanding in terms of results. For example, in the FIA system you get half the points of the winner when you come fourth (12 points). With Codies' scores, that happens when you arrive seventh (14 points)

    I did by compulsively buying three used cars in the same day because SALES and then proceeding to trash one of those into a tree. The repairs costed me all the remaining money apart from 300cr. which I couldn't use because no repairs were that cheap. Luckily I finished the event with a broken car and got the money

    I'd say this is more of an exposure issue. In the same frame are the interior, which is very clearly visible even though it's in the shadows of the cockpit, and the road, which has a very light colour and is brighly lit by the sun. It doesn't look ideal at all but I don't think it's giving out more light than possible

    Not necessarily related but I wanted to share this story. I was doing career in New Zealand with the Subaru R4, going foot to the floor at 180kph into a 6 Left over jump. I go over the crest, still full throttle, landing on the inside of the jump. All just to find a marshall weaving at me because there was a car stopped ahead. The marshall was literally on the edge of the road, on the inside where I had landed. All I'll say is, I was still over 160 when I got the reset to track

    The very easy solution to this is being slow in the game. Like me. I don't have to worry about DoR and shifts because they aren't going to get me to the top, so I can use whatever I like to. I mean, my issue with trees, rocks and cliffs is hardly due to the steering rotation I usually go for soft lock to have the true DoR of that car, and I don't have an H-Shifter 'cause money so paddles will do

    That's one of the sweetest problems a rally game developer can have, isn't it? 3 characters, considering the 26 letters and the 10 digits, give out 42'840* possible different arrangements. Money for licensing would end WAYYY earlier than that I guess *and yes, one of those actually is 22b

    A different Codemasters studio has the licence for the entire F1 championship, tracks included. Their accord with the promoter means that they don't have to deal with individual track owners. Even Poliphony, without such a deal, couldn't manage to get Spa in GT Sport...

    To defend my fellow countryman, he's italian while the WRC8 developer, Kylotonn, is French. So that's definitely not patriotism. I haven't tried any WRC game so I can't comment further

    It would have been more ironic if the penalty for taking two jokers was to take ANOTHER joker...

    Having a water splash in the Joker route sounds like a GREAT idea. I can still see that going horribly wrong, but if you manage to get the drivers to slow down enough, so that they won't rip the floor off with water, it'd be awesome...

    All I know is, it didn't take too long for Gr.A cars to beat the stage times the way more loosely regulated Gr.B cars had set three to four years before
