From what I know, #THATcar is basically what Codies use to describe any Group B Quattro. And @BrySkye most likely asked @KickUp about it at this point anyway. Generally speaking #THIScar is supposed to be more difficult than the Quattro. If not a quattro and harder than one, theres not much left, the most likely i can think of is Monster's Suzuki Escudo or a similar crazy hill climb car perhaps? I may still leave a bit of money on the E2 being this car tho, it just makes sense to me

So for any of us that didn't make a backup of our 0.9 saves, and I know of at least one such poor soul, their save is corrupt. And all of us have to buy the Polo and Hyundai again, so no headstart on upgrades, etc.Well, sh!t. Now you know two poor souls.Glad i did save backup before.... :d  Can you guys shed some light on what was so funky about the pre release sweden? im intrigued...

    I did a few of the monte stages in each of the 70s RWD cars the other night and it was so much fun balancing those light cars around the icy hairpins. Really can't wait to try the Sweden stages, everything about it from the more slippery stages to the whole location and scenery definitely has major appeal! Im afraid you may be disapointed then as if they model it to be realistic, the snow should have more grip than gravel, due to the studs

    I have no idea if he did, just hoped he may have bought one for the Mcrae collection

    Weather will keep me inside for the rest of the year anyway (apart from Rally GB and the RAC Rally); luckily I have DR for company! The photo above makes me wonder, can we expect visually narrow tyres for Sweden? Yup @KickUp Does Alister still have one of his Accents, and is there a chance he'd be willing to lend it to you given your relationship with the McRae name? Would be awesome to have all three British drivers' cars from that era.

    Both ways to interpret are correct, but I think mine might make more sense in the context of the question asked Done, it's the i20 WRC                        If the theory of 5+ modern cars is correct, what are the chances this may appear along side the i20 for some fun in the snow?

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    In the dirt show at the 22:05 mark, he said that there will be more modern cars in winter wonderland then modern masters pack... Or did i dream that? (Cant watch it again were i am atm) I think that's more recent rather than more in quantity, I would believe. For example, the Citroen was 2010 so something newer than that. As he already confirmed to someone on Twitter that at least one of the DS3, Polo or i20 would be added, I don't think it means any more than that. I think you're looking way to much into what Paul said during the last DiRT Show, trying to find underlying meanings and whatnot. Remember, Paul says, shortly afterward, that he gave a "pretty good clue" after saying "more modern cars than what you've seen on modern masters", suggesting that you should take the phrase (clue) at face value and that we are, indeed, getting at least 5 cars in this last update. On another curious note, Paul also says, regarding the cars, that he's been pretty flooded with update messages from the car team, suggesting also that they have quite a lot of work on their hands, i. e. building quite some cars. I disagree, in my mind he was clearly meaning that the pack will include a car or cars that is/are more modern, as in more recent cars, not that there will be more than 4 of them, although that could still be true

    There would probably be huge licensing problems. Istanbul Park is owned by FOM I think, for starters, so their deal probably involves all kinds of arbitrary limitations—it can only have current F1 cars driving on it, these advertisers must be included, these weather conditions are forbidden, it can only be photographed from its good side, all copies expire and must self-destruct by 2018 etc etc etc. I don't know much about licensing content for video games, but from what I've gathered it's all about conjuring up the most byzantine, capricious, restrictive, developer- and player-hostile tangle of requirements, granting the developer the privilege for their game to be free profit-generating advertising for the license holder. Or something like that. As far as im aware, F1 doesnt have any rights to any of the circuits (except perhaps Monaco circuit which is actually public roads so do they have rights really?) as the circuits are owned and managed by separate organisations and deals are made between them and the F1 management for hosting a race. Istanbul Park itself hasnt even been on the F1 calander for 4/5 years so why would F1 have any say in the matter?  My guess would be that the licensing costs would be too high for these big circuits, as they are normally produced in their entirety a full track may be worth it, but compare these two things: -Getting a license for a small RallyX track with low annual income (therefore low expectation on price.) -Getting a license for a Multi Million dollar Motorsport complex only to use a small part of it in game. For the same amount of track, it is likely much cheaper and easier to get an agreement with locations such as Lydden Hill and Holjes, than it would be with Istanbull park or Hockenheimring.

    I actually work for a company who does those exact things, buys clothes gets logos and words etc, printed or ebroidered onto them, we do actually use some Gildan goods as well, so its likely that they received their T-shirts in that box and have just used the box for something else, or they could be taking some swag with them i suppose...

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    It's a requirement of their license agreement that we put that on the legal screen. Would love to have that Astra in there though ;) Could you enlighten us as to the reason why it's not on the game? yes and perhaps if you have any additional cars already planned/being build for the kit car class?

    Now if this allowed for a modern R-GT class to fill the rwd modern void, that would be perfect. I think generally people dont realise just how many porsches have been and are used in rallying.

    Here's hoping, although the 'new class' part makes me fear not, as surely they'd be in the same category as the Fiesta and Mini (1.6T era). Yeah I think it is more likely to be early/mid 2000s era, imprezas, xsaras, evos, focusi ...

    Any chance you could be talking about the Renault Megane?

    Its not confirmed but extremely likely that they will add some more at some point, probably the more modern cars.

The packs have mysterious names for now as with the licencing you don't have it 100% until the papers are signed :) Also, Peugeot 306 Maxi was confirmed to be part of the Tarmac Terrors pack, which is expected to come out in about a month :D Yeah the Seat Ibiza was also confirmed a while ago along side the Peugeot 306 :)  so we know 3 of the cars for the next update
