The car even looks like it handles better now.  There was virtually no way before that you could have carried as much speed and 4 wheel slide through a corner.  This will be a re-learning curve for sure!

Even though I can't use it, it's so good to finally see an Impreza WRC in a DiRT game. <3

I have the same feeling, seems like you can control your car even more. Here's a picture to celebrate.

When I carried a lot of speed into a corner, the car went up on two wheels... this made me not trust it.

So then, Zero cars. 
Basically, new DiRT Rally themed skins, numbered 00, for the Ford Escort Mk 2, Peugeot 405 T16 Pikes Peak and the VW Polo Rally Cross.

Can that be possible (on gravel)? Physics issue?

If the tires dig in to bigger ruts I guess, but any other way, probably not.

Sure it's possible. Rally cars are more susceptible than most racing cars as well between a higher CoG, softer suspension and less downforce.
Compared to a circuit racer, a rally car is like a Land Rover.
That's the fine line between driving to the limits and exceeding them.

I can clearly see what you mean on tarmac... but its not so clear when we´re talking about gravel/mud. Reaching such level of grip on gravel I think its impossible... even in turns with bad camber.

Dont know... I´m not an expert and never driven a rally car.

Gravel had more ridges and holes to upset a car.  If you can't get on two wheels on gravel, you need to go faster!!
