I know the differences in this model have already been mentioned, but I wonder if any of the returning R5's (specifically thinking of the Fiesta) will be tweaked for DR2.0? 
I hope fiesta will get dash display fixed (it used difficult to read road mode instead of stage mode), I am looking forward to use Kajetan Kajetanowicz's WRC2 livery and Kubica's WRC livery on R5!

It probably is, but it's not confirmed the Fiesta is returning yet? 

I do hope R2's return. Hopefully with the addition of Peugeot. It's a brilliant class ?

I’d rather have the R3 class to be honest. Most of them FWD, but quicker, and opens the door for a BRZ R3 as well. We have the historic FWD class to fill up the entry level FWD’s.

So I work for an engineering company and I had a guy call from Belgium who I speak to every once in a while. We got chatting about the weather and he mentioned it would have been great to go to the RAC Wales Rally last weekend and I asked if he was a fan. He then said he actually races them in Belgium as part of a small team called De Max Racing.

He then made me insanely jealous by saying he will be testing a Fiestra R5 in November thanks to his sponsor. My jaw dropped and I was incredibly envious. This guy whom I've never known to be into this stuff actually drives this stuff and is testing one of my dream cars.  :#

I disagree, I really think there should be a modern entry class like the R2's.

R2 class is a lot more popular than R3. Also no such thing as BRZ R3 exists because the Toyota GT86 CS-R3 is the only car classified to R3 class from the FR-S/BRZ/GT86 lineup and we all know how the relationship between Toyota and Codemasters is.

We’re getting a Camaro GT4, used for racing on normal circuits, in DR2.0, so there really is no excuse anymore not putting in a fake BRZ R3. :D

Well the Camaro GT4 isn't actually fictional after all if it will be put in the same R-GT class as the Porsche 911 GT3 because the Camaro is eligible to race in that class in real life ;) Here are the technical regulations for R-GT: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Group_R-GT

Yeah, I am assuming that the Fiesta is back. Codemasters never seem to have a problem getting Fords in game, so I am hoping that it's a given: hope so as it's my favourite R5 to drive in D4!

It's not just Codemasters, Toyota doesn't want to see their cars in racing games anymore. They just make an exception for Gran Turismo because Polyphony Digital is Japanese.

After learning more about the R-GT class, I am really excided to try them!

I imagine the Fiestra will be back as well, there's a Ford for pretty much every era so far in the previous games.

Milestone must have an agreement with them, as the Celica GT4 and GT86 appeared in both Seb Loeb Rally Evo and Gravel.

The entry list for Rally Spain agrees: http://rallyracc.com/2018/descargas/inscritos.pdf
A whopping one R3.

And 31 R2's if I read it right. 

But in all seriousness, it would be a crime not to include R2 cars in DR 2.0 If anything we need more. Like the early 2000s s1600 cars

True, but Forza 7 and the latest Horizon has been without Toyotas. The Community manager made a statement that they are extremely hard from a licensing point of view these days.


Apparently a Toyota exec have openly blamed videogames for reducing sale numbers of IRL cars a few years back.

And Polyphony Digital with GT Sport.

It is literally only Codemasters they won't work with based on a falling out a long time ago which doesn't seem to have been resolved and looks like it never will be.

I think it would be really really cool to get a real dash as the HUD. A trip is a nice Rallystic touch, not a crappy odometer to see how many km your car has
I cant figure it out which car it is, is that an Escort WRC?

HUD is one thing (I personally never use 2d HUD, I alwayrely on 3d cockpit dash) but UDP output would be also useful for Android HUD development (F1 uses one already, so maybe that could make in th a
There's already UDP output in all Codemasters games, it's used for motion platforms - it's a requirement if you want them to work (pitch vector, sunspension position, etc.) List of available informations on particular offsets (some of the ? are actually working like overall distance at 220). https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1eA518KHFowYw7tSMa-NxIFYpiWe5JXgVVQ_IMs7BVW0/edit?usp=sharing

I'd love to know what Codemasters said to annoy Toyota so much: did someone crack a turbo restrictor joke or something?

Maybe Toyota are playing silly and saying that their car has to be best in category (as Ferrari apparently did back in the day)? Or asking for a lot of financial remuneration for using the brand? I don't know/think they are exclusively licensed to any particular games company, so it has to be something else.
