    You're right about the points you're making but the digidash should be neither the one in game or the one in your image; they are both road mode digidashes. In stage mode the digidash is basically just a simple gear display as seen here:

    I guess you're comparing DR2 to stock RBR? If so, then I definitely agree. Based on my experience driving real cars and having had a ride in a rally car twice my opinion is that DR2 captures the feeling of driving/being in a rally car the best. When talking about physics accuracy though RBR with NGP 6 physics mod takes the crown in my opinion.

    Let's not forget the Audi 200 Quattro Group A 😎

    https://www.ewrc-results.com/entryinfo/43104-croall-bryson-jim-clark-memorial-stages-rally-1988/1533775/ I've never heard of a 205 RWD before though so no idea where eWRC has got that info.

    Exactly, we still have quite a few Subarus missing in the game

    That Skoda Fabia R5 isn't a DLC car though.

    That's interesting! Could you tell me what DR2.0 cars have you driven in real life? I'd really like to know 🙂

    Not sure if I like these new forums or not. It looks fresh and more stylish but I really miss the compact and straightforward layout of the old forum. Maybe it just takes some time to get used to.

    Interesting remarks on the graphics.  To elaborate on this he says that the graphic design of the game resembles the older Dirt games rather than what we saw in Dirt Rally and I have to say I agree. This does give a bit of 'cartoony look' with more added effects and flare rather than the more clean bare bones look Dirt Rally had.  You say “clean bare bones”, I say “dull and washed-out”. GoPro footage is not representative of real life ? True, but you don't walk around looking at the world with yellow glasses either  ;) Latvala filter applied: What a twist! You play as Jari-Matti in DR2. Thats funny... I've been playing him in most rally games That's Mikko Hirvonen in WRC Rally Finland 2010 though :wink:

    Seems like I guessed right :smile: Big thumbs up for Meeke's pace with the Toyota too, can't wait for the rest of the season!

    @ChristinaMc Reading about the transition to a new forum at the beginning of February made me think that would it be possible to create a Discord group for us DiRTy Gossipers? As far as I understood the forum is going to be read-only during the transition so we can't create new threads or post messages but I really need my daily dose of gossip in order to not get withdrawal symptoms :sunglasses:

    The dash in the Fiesta is still the roadmode It's the R2 Fiesta in that video, not the R5 The Fiesta R2 display should look the same as in the Fiesta R5 in stage mode: https://youtu.be/Q7ATZmch5rE

    I've seen so much footage of wet roads this week that I'm starting to think that DR2.0 simulates the weather of Wales in every country

    Link?That would seriously open up the possibility, that we might get Full-Length stages of the DR1 DLCs. 20km full Col de Turini, 20km Sweden, or 20km Panzerplatte plus extra Vineyard-stage maybe...? Jon said it on his Instagram story.  Jon's Instagram story just got posted two posts above yours :lol:

    I really feel like Ogier is going to repeat what he did in 2017 with the Fiesta.

    Duuuuude, I can't totally wait for next week either! Hopefully we'll see at least some new cars and info regarding stage lengths etc.

    I'm 99% sure that they are recording DS3 R5 for exactly that reason :smile:

    So he is doing high 42's a lap while Kristoffersson is lapping at mid 48's at Trois-Rivieres IRL. I know curcuits aren't 100% accurate but it really bugs me that lap times are so far apart from real life. 6 seconds per lap is indeed a ridiculous difference on such short tracks. Think about the time difference in final heats; the time in game would be over half a minute quicker. Half. A. Minute. I'm sure some of that time is down to circuit variations, but not THAT much.  So is it down to excessive acceleration or ridiculous corner speed abilities?  In comparison PC2 is a lot closer lap time wise.    In my opinion it's because of too short braking distances, car being too responsive to steering inputs which makes the car change direction unrealistically quickly, and way too much lateral grip. You can just throw the car sideways into the corners, slam the throttle and get away with it quicker than if you drove cleanly trying to avoid sliding. Based on what I've seen in real onboards they "roll" the car into the corner with left-foot braking and try to grip through the corner with gentle throttle input because the wheelspin they get from going full throttle decreases lateral grip so much that they go further from apex and lose acceleration on corner exit. In my opinion iRacing did a good job with rallycross physics. Here's one of my videos from bit over a year ago. The lap was driven in very optimal road conditions (almost 2 hours into the practice session with hundreds of laps by the drivers). A "green" track (a clean track without any laps in) is ~3-4 seconds a lap slower. https://youtu.be/Y60i1e8z6tI EDIT: Just a clarification: these thoughts are based on my experiences with RX in DiRT Rally and DiRT 4. I don't expect rallycross to be radically different in DR2.0 so that's why I decided to write down my thoughts on the lap time issue :mrgreen:

    Looks nice except for the rear spoiler. It's like they went to the local tuning parts shop and purposely tried to find the ugliest spoiler they could find and slammed it to the car. :joy:
