  1. I've done a couple of RX2 races since the update and the back end is now snappier than before. I've changed the setup to help with the oversteer, but the rear still steps out and the front understeers too much on certain corners. It's quite annoying that I can't push it as much as I did before the update. How can I stop the rear wanting to come round, without having the understeer?

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Server Connectivity Issues

    It would be better if when it can't connect, progress is saved locally and then uploaded when there is a connection.

    How do Monthly AI Challenges work?

    I have had messages like that, but not during the Monthly Challenge. Hopefully my 29th place from Poland isn't counted and my position is determined solely by the last location, Australia, which I'm okay on! I won the first event in New Zealand, so lost out on maximum points... I won't bother with another Monthly or Weekly Challenge now. No point spending time on it just for my results to disappear.

    How do Monthly AI Challenges work?

    The results of the first event have disappeared and all drivers have 0 points. After finishing the second event with a terminal crash, I went back to the menu and saw that there were no times or positions for the first event! I assume this means that these challenges need to be completed in one go and that the second event's results will not exist either.
  5. I'm doing my first Monthly AI Challenge and was wondering how they work. Are the final standings based on points accrued in each event or by total time? I've had the glitch where times are all 120 minutes after exiting an event, but I won the last stage so won the event. If the standings are based on total time, I have no hope of doing well! If they're based on points, how are prize credits sorted? Are every player's points put into a table and then the most credits given out to the top points scorers?

    Imagine paying £7.99 for DLC and not being able to use the content on My Team or multiplayer 😂

    DiRT Rally 2.0 - Server Connectivity Issues

    Connection issues AGAIN. Sort yourselves out Codemasters. "Communicating with server" at every step. I try to start a stage on My Team and it won't connect. It's pointless playing My Team now. Why does it have to rely on the internet and which bright spark thought it was a good idea?

    Final DR2.0 thoughts

    Rain is probably my number one gripe with the game. My heart sinks a little when I see that a stage will be wet, either if it's raining or when the road is wet. It's especially bad in Spain, when the lack of grip is really frustrating. The wet tyres are terrible and none of the dry ones work well. I have to go slower just to get around the stage, but I end up so far down the leaderboard that good times on the dry stages are wasted.

    Can't connect to server. Restarted console and internet, so it's definitely at Codemasters end. Please sort it.

    Tips for driving 4WD cars quicker

    Thanks for this Mike. What setup changes can I make to reduce understeer?
  11. I recently bought the Lancia Group A car in career after five seasons driving the Opel Kadett. My best finish in the Clubman championship was 6th. I've done the first three rallies of my first championship with the Lancia and I'm in 18th place. I've made mistakes which have contributed to me being down the order, but more often than not when I do a clean stage I'm also in the bottom 15. How can I be faster and maintain good control of the car? All driving and setup tips are welcome. Thanks very much.

    Colin McRae: FLAT OUT Pack – Available Now

    For me then it's just a big waste of time and space on the console!

    Colin McRae: FLAT OUT Pack – Available Now

    What does the 18.7GB update do? I've not downloaded the pack, but when I went to play just now, I was told there was an update to download!

    How do I avoid sliding under braking?

    Thanks very much. I usually have the brake bias on 50%, or as close as possible depending on what the setting for specific cars allow. How much further forward should it be?
  15. When braking on the approach to a left hairpin, I slid to the right and the back of the car ended up facing towards the turn. I probably braked a bit too late, but I've got anti-lock braking on 5 as I kept sliding under braking when I had it on a lower setting. It has also happened when I've braked in plenty of time and not mashed the trigger, but not very often. Fortunately there was a decent sized gap for the car to slide into, but when I tried to get back on the stage by doing a J-turn, but got a 14 second penalty for it. The penalty (which seems very harsh) cost me a stage win and championship points. It was near the end of a long stage so I couldn't be bothered to restart. FYI I'm using a controller. Is there something I'm doing wrong or need to do differently to stop this happening?
