    Got some specs together, take a look at the torque. The R5 Skoda is pretty high compared to the S2000 spec Fiesta (which get's it speed from revs, rather then torque). Still lower then the old WRC cars, but given the fact that pretty much everything else has evolved as well (not just responsiveness from the engine, but suspension, brakes, tires etc.) it's not that crazy that the current R5's are up there with the old WRC's.                                        2001 Ford Focus WRC2003 Skoda Fabia WRC2009 Ford Fiesta S20002015 Skoda Fabia R5Displacement 1,991 cc1,999 cc1,998 cc 1,620 cc Power 300 bhp @ 6,500 rpm 300 bhp 280 bhp @ 8,000 rpm 275 bhp @ 4,750 rpm Power/Liter 151 bhp / liter 150 bhp / liter 140 bhp / liter 170 bhp / liter Torque 550 Nm 260 Nm 420 Nm Weight 1,230 kg 1,230 kg 1,200 kg 1,230 kg

    True. You can interpret the thing in two ways as the car itself was still a Citroën when it was build, even if the logo ingame is something else. But we'll see. I won't say no to a Xsara or C4 if that's what Paul might be hinting at! :p

    Does normal rally has a spectate mode as well?

    Probably that answer due to the fact that Citroën is actually in, just not as a rally car.

    Which means there are more codrivers besides Nicky & Jen then. :o

    There are some pre configured stages in the career that will be the same for everyone and then there are as many unique stages outside of the career with the Your Stage feature, so pretty much infinite.

    Yeah I am too, you can see them everywhere. R5 really is the GT3 of the rally world.

    Is there a way for us to "James Veitch" them? I'm a member at a Dutch Xbox forum and there was a spam thread about football shirts. When some members reacted for fun the bot reacted back! But that wasn't everything yet. Somehow another spam bot responded in the thread with a 2 page long conversation between two spam bots as a result!  :D Never seen something like that before haha.

    Spam still going, I think this is the perfect time to make this thread a sticky then.  :#

    If I understand correctly, the problem is not the connection from the wheels to the gearbox/engine (if so, clutch would have solved it indeed) but rather the fact that the front and rear wheels are connected. So as soon as you would pull the handbrake all four wheels would stop, as the fronts would be connected to the rears. I think. I would imagine the handbrake in the DiRT tech has a strength variable, or at least some way to disable it. Would be cool if the B cars have no handbrake at least in the simulator mode. You can unbind the handbrake if you want to roleplay being Michèle Mouton :p Already preparing for it! :smiley:

    Nicky Grist never signed any contract, they just locked him up on the test floor, strapped onto the D-Box.

    Well if Paul did his job as a designer right then all that stuff is set in stone and it's up to the content department to build. :p

    Technical question on that. Do those skid maps have some sort of overall multiplier? If so then it would be relatively easy to implement overall grip changes based on the running order right? For example less grip for first couple of cars on gravel due to road cleaning. Wouldn't be represented visually of course, but would be a nice first step.

    Yes, you can save them and you can also share them with others. :smile:

    Well it must be obvious to them too that the fatality had nothing to do with the pace/speed of these cars. Hopefully the maximum avarage speed is set a bit lower because of it being a snow rally, otherwise we'll see a lot more cancellations this seasons, or a downgrade on turbo restrictor in 2018.

    I believe only one R4 was build, but more cars in the form in Dakar trim have seen some light. I never really understood if that project had anything to do with the original development of the R4 (I think Colin's brother Alister was behind the Dakar project), but there were some McRae R4 looking 4x4 Dakar buggy's driving around a few years back: http://www.mcrae-enduro.com/4x4.html
