  1. I will be sitting out next season. First, I'm on vacation, second, there's no way I will use cockpit or dash cam. I sincerely hope the poll swings back again.
  2. This whole season has been a most humiliating experience for me. I don't know where to push, I miss corners and end up at the wrong side of fences or guard rails, I correct too much or not enough, hit banks regularly and night stages are completely killing me. It will take some time until I'm only remotely competitive.
  3. Wow, is this really hardcore damage? I never thought the Peugeot could survive such a beating. It started with a strange bug in SS1, as the car was missing some body parts right from the start und got more and more "naked". At the end of the stage it looked as if driver and codriver were floating in between four tires, with nearly everything else gone. Of course this was quite irritating and might have contributed to the numerous crashes I had in this stage. From then on, the car was more or less done. I reached service with a severely bent steering and an engine that sounded terrible and was dramatically low on power. Quick fixed everything (more than 2 minutes penalty) and carried on, picking up more crashes and three punctures on the way to a most lowly finish. By the way, the visual bug didn't show up again after SS1. Verrrry strange.
  4. Hello everyone! As clubs are now in and steams summer sale is on, I decided to finally jump aboard and buy. Since I enjoyed this league so much in DR it was a no-brainer to take part. And hey, I'm still one of the managers... Argentina went as expected. Without any experience, i was miles behind in SS1 and missed a bridge in SS2. Terminal damage. It will take some time to get accustomed to the game, so this first season will be just learning the tracks. Good to be back!

    Okay, but I have to complete all the levels of 60s championship to unlock the others? You can change the car class after each championship and you don't need to progress according to the suggested periods. If you can afford it, you can drive any car from any class in the championship, regardless of your level.

    Well, take it like a man. Everybody gets fired now and then. :D

    The ride seems a bit too smooth, no bumps and such. It looks like the car is gliding over the track, even when leaving it.

    Friends, romans, countrymen, the DR homepage is down. Does that mean we get our update today?

    Homepage is down for me. Maintenance? It's much too early for the next update, as far as I know.

    I don't mind being able to save and quit in between, as I usually have my own share of "family emergencies". And my computer is used for other things, too. I just think that you shouldn't be able to gain an advantage on others by quitting the game this way.

    Hmm...that's annoying. Are you enabling any of the stages in your events as checkpoints?  A decently simple solution would be to just allow on single Alt-F4 per checkpoint, more and you get thrown out of the event. So if it's a checkpoint on SS3, and I Alt-F4 on SS5 I go back to SS3. But if I Alt-F4 again on SS4 after that I get an immediate resignation. That way you can do an emergency Alt-F4 without fucking up your complete event while stopping the Alt-F4 abuse. What do you really need Alt-F4 for? You can always pause the game if you must. But if you crash, you crash. Go on regardless or retire, that's my view. So I'm with RinusRally here.

    Agreed. No retry should mean exactly that.
