    R&D Progress - what do these bars mean?

    Each bar represents the magnitude of each team's total number of logographic icons that precides in their team name. e.g. Haas vs Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Honda
  2. A good temporary fix is to have the "Connecting with Online Services" not block the entire screen. It usually happens after I finish my first ranked race. I have to restart the game to get rid of it. PS4 here as well.

    David Greco's Handling, Driving and Setup Q&A

    Hey, that's the technique I used since V8 Supercars 2 (TOCA Race Driver 2) 😄

    Manual ERS (FP only not Races)

    As long as ERS modes can be changed at will during a race, the fastest way to drive is to constantly switch fuel mix and ers between straights and corners, which is annoying if you want to just focus on the driving while being competitive. IRL F1 drivers usually don't tinker with the ERS but have that overtake override.

    From the blog: "With a backdrop of infectious atmosphere and an unforgettable soundtrack" It's been almost a decade since Codemasters game had a great soundtrack. I'm so glad Dirt 5's getting something

    I remember the fantasy liveries in Dirt 3 and 2 weren't trash. Loved the Shoei subaru

    The difference is Dirtfish is in a free update. While I do agree that remastering DR1's rally locations as dlc is disappointing, it makes more sense to reuse dirtfish as 1. It is a well known real world training complex, and it works well. 2. A free driving space is not the main focus of this game, why put so much effort to create a new one? I'd rather they put the money and time into new rally stages.

    Finally bought DR 2.0 when it went on sale on the PS store. Playing it with a G29, I actually enjoy the FFB (probably because all the shaking in DR1 was tiresome). I'm almost done with my first My Team event in an R2, tried the special daily in the H3 RWD and boy does the Lancia Stratos like to spin in my hands. Anyone have tips on how to train that beast, or should I just pick the BMW E30?

    So you don't want them to add more rallies because there's not enough rally content?

    So I tried messing around with the H3 RWD cars (sim, no assists, controller lol). Cars generally tend to understeer a lot, especially turns over crests when it feels like the front tyres have no purchase on the gravel. However this can be remedied with some quick differential/suspension tuning, the E30 could rotate into corners more naturally just by changing one differential setting.AI on Tough, I tend to stay well ahead in the modern cars, but in this class they seem to be inhumanely quick with the ticker on the left pulling ahead unrelentlessly even when I take a corner at dangerous speeds, so I had to set it one step down, and now I'm even.Especially with the stratos, getting your tyres slightly onto the grass violently spins the car into it (tried to experiment a bit, and maybe going off the throttle prevents this), and one rear tyre touching an outside rocky bank spins you inside (by the time I've countersteered and off the throttle i'm at right angles). I'm not exactly complaining, just an observation, certainly makes stages much more tricky to go full attack.I noticed on a replay with the stratos on Wales, the concave shape of the road makes the front inside tyre not touch the ground at all when going around the hairpins. Interesting.

    Nice roll :D I look forward to people finding the real easter eggs :) https://youtu.be/nHBeBbzuS9g Here's the roll.  The PS4's record function is a great feature. Looks like your car looked at its rolling tyres and wanted to join in the fun

    Here it is boys, ACG's review on Dirt 4. Pretty much exactly what I was expecting, but his comment on the music was a surprise ;) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJHkjYDTR-U Spoilers: "Absolutely a buy"

    @Rygar86 I actually haven't played the game yet (wow, come to think of it my username is very similar to aki1337), just conveying what I observed from the guys in this forum to counter the overreacting comments. In that case I don't think I'm qualified to compare D4 to DR grip, but the difference is much more noticeable when compared to IRL footage. Really, while it is healthy for gamers to point out criticisms in games so the devs can improve their product, I'm apprehensive of the possibility of Dirt 4 flopping in sales and reducing the chance of a sequel, since the brand is small compared to the likes of GT, Forza, NFS etc. which are backed by massive companies ensuring their survival. I just remember Colin Mcrae 05, and Dirt 1-3 being part of my childhood. But compared to last gen, racing games this gen have been unexciting, consisting of either Forza or buggy disappointments. Funny enough, Dirt Rally was the only exception to that cycle, and before that I'd boot up Dirt 3 on the 360 and have more fun than in current gen racers.

    More excellent rallycross action, this time from Aarava. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2ROGEfb0CQ
