  1. The only thing in which a rally Kit Car and a normal kit cars are the same is that both use a body kit (even thought, 1996 Kit Cars apart from the Clio, Megane and some few exception just added spoilers), but a rally Kit Car is much more, as those body kits are installed and mounted from the factory (unlike a normal kit car, in which you have to build it yourself). They use lightweight parts, meaning these cars could weight as less as 900-910 kg before the FIA impossed a weight ballast to make them slower than WRC cars in asphalt. And finally but not less important, they sported highly tuned mechanics, so as the cars they were based in where around 150-180 hp in their 16 valves-2.0L engine configurations, this cars where between 265-300 hp in rallying configuration, using "the same" engine. Don't think so. I've never been sure what F2 exactly means, but I think it is something like WRC being F1 (never called like that) as they use the top "formula" (this is, 2.0L engines and AWD), 2.0L Kit Cars and '93 to '96 2.0L FWD rally cars being F2 and 1.6L and '93 to '96 1.6L rally cars being F3 as they used sameller-slowest formulas, thus comparing rallying to open-wheelers in the use of "formulas".

    Thank you for the kind words! Makes it easier to keep on working I'm planning on doing it for the DiRT Rally one, if it helps 😅

    I have been holding the release of this liveries for some weeks, but I think today is a good day to release it. This is a little tribute to Markko Märtin, but specially, to Michael Parks. I'm recreating the 2002 Focus WRC, on the San Remo and Network Q GB rallys, on the R5 Fiesta. They finished 5th on the Italian event, while clinching a podium on the Wales rally, as they finished in 2nd place. I'm gladly surprised how well it fits the Fiesta. Hope you like it, guys! R.I.P.

    DiRTy Car Wishlists!

    While I agree in that having cars like the 306 Cosworth would be a chimera (you wouldn't even get a license to call it a Peugeot 306), I disagree in that some of them are far from "the original rally meaning". Let's not forget that, for many years, rallying was based around crazy ideas (Group B and S cars are prototypes, not in the more strict form of the word, but they are), like sticking a new front end to you Beta Montecarlo, adding a Volumex to the engine, and go rallying around the world. As for license, well, I don't think Citroen is a problem honestly. The relationship between CM and the PSA Group seems to be pretty good, with 3 Citroens, 2 Peugeots (and 2 more comming) and 3 Opels.

    DiRTy Car Wishlists!

    The car in the picture is a Ferrari 308 GTB, not a 288 GTO, which was a Group 4 rally car, so it could fit perfectly in the H3 RWD class. There was also a rally Group B prototype, the 308 GT/M, while the 288 GTO was for the circuit-racing side of the Group B, as well as the Porsche 959 (despite the Porsche being finally used in rally-raids).

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Version 1.8 Bug Reports

    PC, Steam GTX 1050 Ti, i7-7700HQ, 8 GB RAM Deluxe (Seasons 1 & 2, plus Season 3 rally content) PDP Xbox One controller During today's H1 Daily Challenge in Greece, I found that the Controll Stop marshall is on the other side of the road, facing the wrong direction: Not game-breaking or anything, but interesting. Haven't noticed it on other stages (well, I have only tried Fourketa Curve). PS: Despite he looks at the car when it is stopped, he wasn't looking while it was comming.

    We need Kit Cars!! All of them!! (I know, I know, I sound like a kid... the struggle of loving a category that is so much forgotten in current rally games... well, since 2002 more or less)

    Aaaaand after a medium-quality Ibiza, a teaser of what's to come next week (hopefully, I could do a DiRT Rally car version in time)

    (Didn't manage to find DiRT Rally custom liveries thread, if this can't go here, will delete it) Well so, despite the inclusion of Kit Cars for DR2.0, my hopes of reproducing an almost-full season of the British Rally Championship in its Kit Car era, vanish more with each year it passes, as RBR won't fire up, and a uncertain future in wether CM would add more Kit Cars (or even make DLC cars up for livery modding). Anyways, I took to 2016's DiRT Rally to make my first take on CM's Kit Car category with this Ibiza-Golf. I would try to improve some details I noticed (despite I had to take some licenses to fit the sponsors) should I learn how to correctly paint the wheels (I tried lot of things, but didn't manage to make a "solid" colour).

    I did the Audi Sport International Rally for the first DiRT Rally... might update it to DR2.0
  14. Well, the problem with what you said in the first paragraph was because licensing, yes, we all know it (those problems apparently were just with 2017+ cars and stages of current WRC events). But then again, every WRC class car was up for modding in DiRT Rally and DiRT 4, and I don't see the WRC going against those of us who created liveries for those games, nor against rally cars mods made by the community, which is what we are talking about here. Look at it this way, the FOM is very itchy about who and how uses F1 footage, present or not, but they don't go deleting every F1 related mod out there. So IMHO bringing the WRC licensing issues up here doesn't make much sense (even less when some of the DLC cars aren't WRC class cars). As for your last paragraph, well, people here have brought up other solutions to make everyone happy, like releasing a template and letting us use the folder method, like others companies do, which is what I was talking about in the first place. I can fully understand the reasons behind locking the full files of the cars though.
  15. I see your point but, doesn't both Project CARS games had a very "user livery-friendly" policy? It wasn't just them putting a white livery to replace it with yours, they even released the templates in their forums. And the same goes for Assetto Corsa and rFactor 2. I don't see no one suing those companies for that. Not trying to be harsh or anything, I'm just stating that there has to be something else... And it's strange that they only are locking DLC cars and not the base game ones.

    Yep, sorry about that, thought they would be uploaded as thumbnails, and I was having some problems with the forums yesterday night. Solved, only 5 photos now 😅

    Work In Progress for the Polo R5. It will be part of an incoming VW Motorsport UK/SBG Motorsport hommagge skin pack I'm working on

    So here it is, my first DiRT Rally 2.0 livery. It's nothing too complicated, nor a recreation of any given livery, just a mix of sponsors and patterns used on the real cars. (Thanks to RallyGamer's Playground for the WRC stickers) Hope you like it guys! Download: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/volkswagen-polo-r5-wrc-hommage.26182/
