Haha, poor @soundfx :D People are never happy!
By being picky about engine sounds we just guaranteed him another day where he gets to play round with another rally car: he should be thanking us really.  ;)

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!
When I carried a lot of speed into a corner, the car went up on two wheels... this made me not trust it.
Can that be possible (on gravel)? Physics issue?
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.
It's not just about grip. In fact, lack of grip can potentially make it worse as it allows you to get more sideways with more speed. 
Suspension on one side fully compressed, and fully uncompressed on the other side.
Throw in a higher CoG and you have all the components of a roll. If you're going fast enough, it's not going to take too much in the way of a bump or undulation to push it over the edge.

Do you find this plausible? at the top of that litle crest? Its hard to believe it can happen that way.

@OzoreXS Pretty sure that they're working on this as I have pointed it out before.
It doesn't look like something that couldn't happen though.

Yea and you gotta keep in mind, we're probably doing crazier stuff with those cars than those rally drivers would do in real life. Because we've got a restart button anyways, and it's not like we'll die if we crash into a tree as fast as we can.

...and all without an elite team of expert engineers strongly advising us that we really shouldn't be leaving the service park, never mind doing 100mph over a crest with our suspension setup the way it is! :)

Hey , for everybody still at work, I'll leave this here too:

This looks so good. Love that SWRT livery!

My only gripe (and I feel like a bit of a dick posting critique on new content) is the engine sound: doesn't sound like an Impreza WRC? 
How many different sounds do these scooby's make!? ;)
Oh you'd be surprised!

The S12b is the best sounding WRC imo

https://youtu.be/s0Ehhu5NzD8
I struggle to decide on the best sounding Impreza WRC! The S12b sounds sublime on full chat, but the S7 - S11 all made loads of turbo noise and had very aggressive sounding anti-lag...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTDt432CsAk

...(still jealous that you got to spend a day watching someone play with an Impreza WRC @Rallycameraman )
The Group A car but it's been tweaked a little. 
Ah, that explains why it's the sound of an Impreza with unequal length headers then. Another Impreza for you to master the audio for @soundfx !

I guess you missed this video where I spent the day with an S11 and S12b

You got to spend a day with my two fave generations of Impreza WRC and I wasn't invited...

Actually I'm gonna say that could happen, the car is super light at that point and the right side touches down enough, it's roll center is in the right place to tip over with some side forces.

The two wheel thing looks perfectly normal to me.
My only issue with rolling is that, on lower speeds, one can't quite steer towards the roll to slap the car back down and the roof collision mesh is more like a pyramid that auto-rolls you back on all fours.

I need to watch that section of the stream back again, but I seem to remember a couple of very vague clues. Personally, I'm hoping we don't have too many new classes added and current ones are padded out a little. Group A, 2000s and 2010s are all 'modern' classes that could do with an extra car or two.

Sent thoughts of mine:
- We were told 'over 15' cars were in production and 8 have been released since. Assuming all have licensing approval, that means there are potentially 8 or so still in planning. I'd guess that means 5 or so are likely to be in this pack.

- The latest two cars being "2000s" and not "2001" would suggest there won't also be a late 2000s group for the other Focus and C4 (and if no C4 will there be any rallying Citroens at all?).

- We know there'll be a new class though, so what could this be? According to the stream they won't be the most iconic, but 'fan favourites'. S


S2000 stands out for me; the cars were superb leaders of the IRC days, they have sound recordings for 2 already, they have several Peugeots and Fiats already as well as the two models. Add a Skoda or Fiesta there and you've got a great class with modern cars with a little less power than the WRC cars. I'm sure we'll get a few more clues, so that guess will most likely evolve over the month. Hope there is a new 2000 or 2010 car in there somewhere too.

We know about Alpine and 5 Turbo but they will come probably with Winter Wonderland i guess 
They still are making full cars list  https://twitter.com/Kick_Up/status/650377249808642048?s=09

I think they'll be filling out the 2000's class.

Citroen?  Isn't the WRX DS3 a Citroen?
Sort of, yes. I'm hoping for the rallying version but that might be harder for them to get hold of.

I found this one more interesting; some R5, R4 or S2000 cars are planned. Look forward to whatever they might be.

Would love to see the 2006 Focus and Impreza S12 or the Peugeot 307. But this are just unrealistic dreams  ;)
Anyway, nice that the gossip goes in the next round  :D

No it doesn't, once DiRT Rally is officially released we'll just start gossiping about DiRT Rally 2 ;)

Lancer 6.5? Seat Cordoba? Skoda Octavia? Nah, those are my personal favorites.

I do however struggle to get the "modern masters" though, as we already have two 2010's, unless they've managed to get the DS3 and Polo in.
