    DR 2.0 Weekly thread

    That was a struggle. Lost by 20s to Joona, dont know the details as he ran after me. Had good battling with some console guy until he crashed out. Did some wrong tyre choices that lost me a lot of time and spun two times i think, that 20s gap would be much closer if I had made no mistakes edit: the results are kinda short tbh, only see overall time? Would be great to have results per stage and overall aswell.
  2. I think that happens only if you repair your car after shakedown. You can change the setup all you want, but if you repair the car you cant continue shakedown.

    I came to same realization. Historic championship and also custom championship i believe you can enable it, perhaps in the my team career mode its extra after you have finished masters difficulty (just guessing)

    Edit: should add this is PC and i tried to use Ultra settings, but my 4670k and gtx1070 was not quite up to snuff for recording 60 fps. Turned off advanced blending, AA stuff since those are not so useful over video (as the jaggies will get blurred anyways )

    2019 FIA World Rally Championship

    Meh. That would go all in favor of team orders, hierarchies and penalising young drivers who don't have much experience for no reason. And what would happen woth Citroën who usually run just two cars? Plus rallies can be so unpredictable. In this case, Citroen would have used Breen to sweep for Meeke, but Breen was much quicker than him.  Fair point. I'm torn between road position ideas. On one hand, the current system is decently fair, since it makes it more of a challenge for the championship leader(s), but at the same time it would be good to have some form of sweeper before the championship leader to level the playing field just a little bit. In Sweden it really was horrible for Ogier, but for Tänak it started to get a bit better already as second car.  But Sweden this year was an extreme case aswell, on other rallies Ogier usually has been able to keep in in contact with the lead after day one so if it's just edge cases like Sweden then I don't think it's time to overreact. Not only is/was sweden an extreme case of road sweeping (ploughing hehe) but it was an extreme winter for sweden nowadays. There is currently a large cold area over northern hemisphere/europe, causing very cold temperatures and obviously lot of snow to stick around. I remember hearing some of the commentators like becsy who have been going to sweden every year in the 2000s and never has there ever been such amount of snow and high banks. On the flipside, even in sweden it could have been deemed the best position on the road to be first, when the event was in danger of cancelling stages due to insufficient snow conditions. The whole debacle to change the rules is really a knee-jerk reaction to a extreme case, whereas normally in sweden its much more in line with other locations' road sweeping conditions both in good and bad.

    That might make it easier for new guys and keep everyone happy (except the fastest guys, example ogier). I am quite indifferent about it, but from a competition stand point it seems best for the quickest drivers. If you are fastest, best driver (which we have multitude of currently) on every rally you can select your starting position in order of your speed in the rally (location). This would optimally result in tightest competition between best drivers, which i believe is what rallying is all about? If the best drivers are always choosing the best starting positions, for sure you cant complain that one driver had better position than another (being first vs last). In the end I see it putting weight on different things. Current system rewards consistency regardless if you obviously lose time based on your starting position (ogier truly has mastered this rule while others are scrambling to just win every rally, playing into his hand with each mistake they make). I dont mind it really, it just sets the nature of the game. But if I could choose I'd put more weight on competition between best drivers on every rally on the calendar.

    Went to see Neuville do local rally here in finland (Autoglym rally) last summer, it was great first taste of the new 2017 wrc's before going to neste rally few weeks later. Hope they can get some valuable testing out of the rally next summer.

    realistic cars and stages go hand in hand. When u are driving on a road wide enough only for your car, its suddenly not so arcade anymore.
