  1. A countdown and Subaru content? Good call!

    2020 FIA World Rally Championship

    Yeah, Ogier is a very smart driver and tends to be pretty consistent with his point scoring: his greatest moments have been pulling some epic drives out of the bag when he has been up against it.

    2020 FIA World Rally Championship

    He is just giving the rest of the field a head start before he becomes one with the Yaris! Fantastic drive from Evans and an astonishing performance from Kalle as well. It is obviously very early days, but there looks to be a potential three or four way fight for the title this year.
  4. Spot on. In several respects I find DR2.0 "easier" than DR1: because the behaviour of the cars is more consistent and, in my personal opinion, more realistic. Some of the collision and jump physics in DR1 seemed well off at times.
  5. This idea just cropped us as a result of the Discord group, but this is a thread purely for videos of DR2.0 in action. No chat, speculation, wishes or any other text: just post the video! (and then discuss it in the Gossip Thread) https://youtu.be/DeZsc9rMXgA https://youtu.be/sdBAc29N97c https://youtu.be/A5Z-wk8iPg8 https://youtu.be/y5qC83HFrec https://youtu.be/CNRf8a0q7Mk https://youtu.be/uOOu1RBnJlY https://youtu.be/9dpM3xJJJak https://youtu.be/LDmUZXS1oGY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tpV_5R5GhA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-2YwL6hi8o https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZjuEjqVKHs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhXhTzmKKQg

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Car Inaccuracies

    No worries! Must confess that I prefer the "normal" looking Mk.2, but it is a historically significant rally car, so nice to have it in game!

    Just saw the video, that was a big one! Glad to hear that the crew are OK.

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Car Inaccuracies

    You aren't the first one to comment on the Mk.2 Escort @OhGi8. Codemasters modelled it on the Mk.2 Escort that Roger Clark used so, although it is not the "regular" Mk.2 Escort that you are probably used to, it is correct!
  9. Still hope for the DS3 yet @JorritVD!

    Rally 2.0 worth it?

    It's OK @PJTierney: I have already smelt the bait...

    Rally 2.0 worth it?

    Definitely agree with this: I think there was a level of inconsistency with car behaviour in DR1 that was reduced with D4 and has now been eliminated in DR2.0. Cars could snap without warning in DR1 and some of the physics in the air seemed well off. ...yeah, its still tricky, but definitely less random on the limit now! Ditto. I occasionally load up DR1 for PIkes Peak and D4 for the Focus RS RX and DS3... ...would really be helping me out if you could get the DS3 sorted as a final hurrah for DR2.0 @PJTierney!

    Ha! Great minds @PJTierney...

    I see Jon Armstrong was at the PSRX workshop last night. I'm not intensely jealous. Much.

    Pas dans Dirt Rally 2.0. Espérons que dans le prochain match!
  15. I could be wrong but, at this point in the games lifespan, I can't imagine the whole team are still working on DR2.0. This is an all new location as well, so it is going to require a significant amount of man hours.
  16. YES! Perhaps the most underrated EsCos livery!
  17. The '01 Focus Martini and '07 Focus Castrol/Abu Dhabi liveries would be my pick from those above! Is it March 24th yet? I want to throw that Legacy at some Finnish trees...
  18. Glad to see Barbosa back, I thought his car looked great last year (and, after seeing them everywhere a few years ago, there is a distinct lack of DS3's now!).
  19. I don't think we had a proper 2019 rallycross thread on the old forum, did we? With more news coming about the forthcoming World and GRC Europe Championships, I thought I'd start a thread up for all the 2019 rallycross Championships. Just seen the news that GRX have confirmed three cars for the World Championship in 2019: http://www.fiaworldrallycross.com/article/10226/grx-taneco-launches-three-driver-programme Full season for Gronholm and Timerzyanov with select drives for Nitiss.
  20. Some great points raised so far, a few that I would like to reiterate/expand on: - Career Mode: definitely agree that this feels very artificial (and almost pointless) in DR2.0. The Historic Championships feel more like a "proper" career to me. - Class Balance: I do think this is a tricky one for CM to manage, as I like to see cars match their real-life counterparts but some classes do seem to have clear OP cars. If the next title is to get the same number of cars as DR2.0 at release (and/or if that total number of cars is planned to come via DLC) then I'd like to see further class divisions. - ALS: I am pretty sure that ALS isn't being properly modelled on the cars at the moment. I'd like to at least see ALS correctly modelled and, if possible, ALS settings as something that players can adjust... - Car Damage: ...I'd like to see this have a knock on effect on the damage side of things as well. Set the ALS at maximum and then driven the car sedately? Then the turbo and engine should suffer damage accordingly. As others have said as well, hardcore damage isn't punishing enough in my personal opinion and mechanical damage isn't anywhere near severe enough either. Driving the car with the engine constantly bouncing off the rev-limiter should result in problems! - Car Performance Upgrades: I know there are different schools of thought on this but, to me, this is pointless in a rally game. Have experience reflected in My Team (so as you accumulate more time with the car the repair times come down as your mechanics get more familiar with the car) and even have the upgrades for reliability, but doing mileage to get more performance thing seems completely artificial to me: just glad it wasn't in Freeplay! - Rallycross AI: This has been mentioned multiple times, but is a major gripe of mine: some tracks the level seems spot on and on others the AI is ridiculously quick. Hopefully DR2.0 will provide you with enough data to determine better average lap times for the AI is RX. - Group B Rallycross: Pleeeeeeease model the specifications of these cars more accurately next time!
  21. Fingers crossed: the more real liveries the better!

    Best R5?

    Thought I'd start a discussion to kill some time while we wait for the Flat Out DLC. I am curious to know what peoples preference is in the R5 class. I have clear favourites in pretty much all the classes now, but I still find myself flitting between the Fiesta, Fabia and Polo in R5. I initially thought the Polo was slow, but a few of my fastest times on tarmac have been set with it, so it seems it isn't as off the pace as I first thought. I nearly always play with default setup, but opinions of those who are playing the same as me and those of you who are tweaking settings are both welcome!
  23. The text has been corrected, but I still think it is underpowered!
  24. The best looking Subaru and the best sounding Subaru. Double win.
