    And if you're Captain Casual like me? 🙂 

    Work on making the softs last, but yeah, still use softs and do your best, will be faster.   If you just wanted to be safe you would have to go with hards , but it would cost you a lot!

    The general consensus seems to be that if there's 25km between Service Areas you go Medium, and anything below that is Softs.

    Oliver stacked the 4 "parent" Stages together, which was nearly 50km of continuous running.

    It's not about a consensus.  All the guys at the top as far as I am aware were using softs because they out perform the mediums and degrade at just very very slightly earlier than the mediums (to worn level). (The top 0.1% decide here, who are a very small minority)    Overall the softs were faster on those 4 stages if you drove at near WR pace.     The tyre tests that people have done on the forum here were not accurate to what was happening when testing the tyres in the wales stages. (most likely inconsistent drivers, not using data analysis to check themselves either)

    That was insane! I wonder how many people just bolted on softs without seeing the lack of service areas in between any of those four stages.

    Probably many, however softs may not have been a bad choice.  🤔

  4. My SS12,  just trying to get to the end to keep my position in the championship

    Which ended up being a surprising P7


    I really lost some pace after SS2 where I had a very unexpected moment pretty much on a line that I always take, which shot me into a log pile and over it, off the track.  My car nor I were not the same after 😄  Also the degradation in SS12 was a bit of a shocker, hence why I also eased off another ~10s there.


    It was a very tough Cup, busy time, unfamiliar events... so glad to at least get a great result from it. 🙂

  5. ^ Not bad for going in relatively cold to the stages without that many hours in DR2!


    Meanwhile I just finished, provisional P5 in wales, P7 likely and P8 in championship should be secure    AW  YISS!

    Really took it steady in SS12 ... had nothing to gain by pushing there 😉

  6. Yea, I ended up 16th after 2 issues but still P8 in championship which could end in P9 to P7 easily in Wales

    My run of SS12 which was very good with P9 stage time: 

     You can see a bad line at the end of the big fast downhill left (after fast section, near 50s) where it tightens, had to use extra road and hit some posts to open it instead.  Should have had a wider entry there to open up the 3/4 left tightens.  Otherwise it was quite good with just a wiggle on a landing 🙂

    Love this competition, but together with also having other responsibilities, the 1 week events really beat me up physically  😄

  7. My run in the final stage  SS12 of New England, safe run as I had 1.8s to spare from my PB to move into 6th spot!  Windshield damage is the standard clubs bug, I had no real damage after SS11


  8. There seems to be something very fishy with the results posted by @oliversolberg01 on twitter for the results in Greece where Oliver is listed in P10 for championship standings.


    The club results are here:



    Where I am listed in P10.  

    And here:


    Where Oliver is 67th

    Oliver only scored 778 points in Greece, meaning he basically retired.  How can he still be in P10, he didn't win a single stage in Greece either?

    Here are the stage wins in Greece this week 


    Last week's standings are here:

    Oliver was listed in 8th pos in the champ after Sweden, which matched the club:



    So where is Oliver getting the extra 57 spots and 2600 points to be ahead of me? (he is now 67th in the Club after Greece)

    The Twitter post is clearly Fake News! (real fake news)

  9. This may not be seen as a bug, but I think it's severe enough to put here:


    The pacenotes in Scotland are quite problematic in practice, especially with faster cars.

    Here are the issues:

    1. Many calls to not cut or for tight corners come completely too late in faster cars.
    2. Many good cuts are not called, many "don't cut"s  are not called either (for example for logs either on exits or inside open corners)
    3. Because the final lines with cuts are not considered for the corners they are often called way too severe.

    What? No, no, no.

    You will not lose your DLC you purchased of course.
    You just have nothing in your garage except the Lancia Fulvia and Opel Corsa RX with free repairs (so you can't get out of money).
    And you will not have free cars and ridiculous amount of credits at start.
    So starting career "the old way". You can buy the DLC cars with in-game credits in the car dealer then, but they are not always available, there is some kind of rotation in.

    Keep in mind, that the DLC cars you got once have "clean" car stats. Cars from the car dealer have most of the time already stats on the cars because they are used and old.
    Most of the old DLC cars you can't get with clean stats if you reset the progress or if you sell them!
    But if you don't care about stats, keep going.

    Everything said only counts for My Team-Mode.
    You have access to everything in the other game modes.

    Do you recall if this also deletes tuning set ups?  And does it by any chance delete World Records or times on leaderboards? (I mean the reset racenet data option)

    I very disagree the wheather physics are fine. They are way off. Driving in cockpit view and heavy rain is much to difficult and with VR you cannot see anything throughvthe side windows which is compkete unrealistic.

    The difference between cockpit view and for instance bonnet cam is with this physics so large that bonnet is the only option to go fast and that is just wrong.

    Easy fix, no more exterior cams  😄  (okay side window visibility AFAIK is useful IRL in most instances except when the drivers cover the side windows with mud, so I generally agree with this)

  12. I do recall Christina mentioned that they would check on the feedback provided and make changes as necessary.  And well I guess the changes to be made were not significant when they saw the other things to fix.  Don't think they were trying to deceive anyone.  🤗


    Please remember also that there was a lot of indecision from the community on WHAT changes should be made, if any.

  13. All this is common sense, the problem seems to be that Codies are mostly done with changes to DR 2.0.  Hopefully they learned a LOT for DR 3.0 and what it needs (pacenote timing adjustments, editing  and even recce are some of those things)


    Don't get me wrong, I still hope they offer some fixes if possible.

    I think you're overthinking it a bit. It doesn't need to be that complicated - if there's a proper damage model in place already, then just making the roadside extra bumpy, or extra gloopy/muddy/snowy, would be enough to discourage cuts, because of the risk of damaging the car or getting it stuck.

    This is mostly true, however for TimeTrial you need a system that discourages un-sensible cuts that is not risk based as that implies a chance you might get through fine.  You do absolutely need something that is 100% guaranteed to cause trouble. like a penalty or slowing you down.   So for the rest of the game I agree with you, but remember that TT people will take all risks until one out of every 50 runs they make it through.

  15. Yeah I agree, but that is what they decided to do. (there would be a lot of upset DLC users back when the cars/stages came out if they didn't get them in MyTeam I guess... <shrug>)

    It seems like it is supposed to reset all progress, but it doesn't work. I've tried a couple time and my progress remains intact. I wish they would fix this.

    So apparently this is intended as you paid real money for the DLC stuff so they grant you the cars and the DLC credits.    IMO it's overall also an issue that you can only have this one MyTeam career.  I'd like to start a few and one from a big fat zero.
