    Steering Wheel
  1. Well i missed the first two events of the season but had a good run through Greece. I like the S4 and am pretty used to it's handling. Bit of trouble in stage 2 with a dumb off and reset, but other than that pretty quick and clean. :)
  2. Well, first i missed the Germany event. I wouldn't have done that great there anyhow but at least could have collected a few points. Then tonight i sit down to enjoy the Wales event and after 4 full stages, as the 5th opened my computer froze up. Kind of unusual really but upon restarting of course the Wales event had reset. Oh well. I don't really fell like restarting now and i don't think it's really fair if i do anyhow so i'll take a DNF. I was in the lead after S4 though. Haha. Just barely with only around 7 seconds i think. Won S1-2 and 4. Onto next season, well done guys. :)
  3. Finished Finland with a nice feel throughout, a few close calls but nothing too bad.  The Manta feels like a big heavy muscle car sometimes, soft and slidey. With the anti-roll bars up full it's a fun ride.  :)
  4. Ha! Well done man. Good race between you guys. :)
  5. Well, i was kinda overdriving through S4-7 to try and catch Arete and Snaky. A few oversteers and an actual lucky barrel roll in there but i finished pretty quick. Still no catching the top times though, especially on the hairpinny stages. The 2wd can't get going from a stop as quick as the 4wd's, i'm sure that'll be a big problem in Germany too. Anyhow, fun times. I like the Manta in Greece, looking forward to Finland. :)
  6. First 3 stages of Greece done. Went into it cold after crashing the Polo/sweden daily so it felt weird at first. I stayed clean but pretty cautious and slow on S1 leaving me quite behind the fastest time. I sped up for S2 only to slip off the road at one point. Luckily i was able to drive back onto the road myself to avoid a reset but still lost 10 sec. S3 is my favourite Greece stage and i finally had a good flow going. In 3rd place at the moment. :)  
  7. Haha,  :)  I did have a good event, i love the Sweden stages as i've said before and i love the Manta too.  Was cruising through S1-4 really clean, then lost concentration during 5 for a quick spin. Another in 6 as the sloppiness continued. Still not sure how fast it is compared to the 4wd's. Probably mainly just slower start ups from sharp corners.
  8. Sorry so late but i'm into the idea of group B cars. Since i won the last championship, i'd like to take a slower car or something to give me a slight disadvantage. Like having to clean the roads. Ha. I'd like to use the rwd Manta. Is that at a disadvantage to the 4wd's? :)
  9. Well, i think it'll be a close one. If you top guys beat me here, you could win the championship. I don't feel i did clean enough event to win here, i had a good feel in the last couple stages but another spin out in S5 i think it was. Added to the spin and reset in the first half of the event, i don't know if it'll be good enough. Loving the feeling on the R5 on gravel though, a pleasure to drive on these great stages. Good luck guys. :)
  10. Scyy said: Awesome isn't it? Started Wales before most of you this time so i'm not sure how fast my pace has been. I'm taking a little break after S3 while hoping all the rain clears up. Ha. In S1 i was super careful. Clean yet not real fast. S2 was same but messier and i even had a spin i one corner and then rolled onto my side. I waited a few seconds for it to roll back on it's wheels but no luck. Reset. S3 managed to have a pretty good pace, best feeling so far. :)
  11. Ooof, yeah not so good a ride for me in Germany. I don't feel so bad for getting a 2 min lead in Finland now that i'm 2 min behind here. Ha. I won't totally blame the car though, it was handling ok, i just don't have good a feel for the tarmac. Always misjudging breaking points and clipping stones on the insides of corners. Trying to push a little too hard maybe. Had an ok S1 but was still down 10 sec or so. The rest of the rally was pretty messy. A few crashes, a few spins. Onto Wales, gonna be a close season. Don't crash guys. :)
  12. After my nice and comfortable Sweden event, i went into Greece feeling good but i probably should have done a shakedown first as i slid wide off the road early in S1 and got reset. S2 went good which got me back up the leaderboard a bit but a dumb spin in S3 lost me another 10 seconds. S4 was fast but in S5 i oversteered a hairpin and clipped one of those spectators on the inside. Reset again. A good S6 and a really fast S7 didn't quite catch me up to Panic but has me in 2nd place for now.   :)
  13. Yeay! Nice runs in Sweden. I love the Renault and i really love the physics and handling in Sweden. It feels really good to my senses.  Mostly pretty clean and calm event, I pushed quite hard in S1 - S3 until i got too messy and i began getting slowed up on the snow banks in S4. I had about a one minute lead before the night/snow stage, so i took it easier through there. Cautious and clean through S6 and 7. Sweden and Finland are usually my fastest events, maybe because they're most like the roads where i live in Canada. Greece and Wales are pretty good too though i noticed in the 80
  14. Well, after doing about 6 shaky shakedowns with the Renault, i had what i thought may be a working technique for Monte. With the weight of this car being more mid-rear you really have to throw it around the corners to prevent the understeer. Get the back sliding out more before the corner. While this worked okay, i'm being quite sloppy at it in the first stage and ended up ramping off the road to DNF. Thank goodness. :) Wasn't looking forward to having to run 6 full monte stages. I don't imagine i would have done to well here even if i had finished anyhow, not blaming the car, i'm just not v
  15. Yeay! That was a fun season guys and pretty close too. It's no fun if its not close. I'm up for 80's rwd if everyone else is too. I love Rwd action. Probably use the Renault. :)
