My whishlist of somewhat realistic cars would be Opel Ascona for 80s, Mazda RX-7 for Group B (not sure if it was RWD or not), Opel Astra for F2 Kit Cars,  some more Mitsubishis, the previously mentioned Impreza 2015, VW Polo R. A Supra for Group B RWD would be awesome, but probably not gonna happen with the whole licencing thing

Threw in my own little twist on the joke.
Enough for an illusive heart, but no comment. ;)

lol... over 6 damn months he's teased me with whatever #ThisCar will be and it's still apparently no closer to be revealed.

@KickUp I may, possibly, perhaps be starting to see why @Hatward said you were actually a worse troll than him.

Isn't #thiscar related to USA's Rally Championship new Subaru? I've seen a video with it tagged like that.

The conversation when it came up was related to the Quattro, aka #ThatCar
Which was famed in the studio for being dreaded, difficult to drive, etc. 
Since the line was "Just wait till we introduce #ThisCar" the implication is something even more tricky.
Doesn't sound like any Subaru to me.

So, we've already found out there there are cars coming after 1.0? - so maybe #thatcar should be asked if it's still coming at all?

#ThatCar is the Quattro. ;)

I asked more about #ThisCar a couple of weeks ago (though I mis-remembered the hashtag)

#ThatCar is a long running joke. Might notice whenever the Quattro appears in a DiRT Daily, it's called #ThatCar

Saying as Paul said a couple of weeks ago that #ThisCar is still to come and that he's more recently said it's not going to be in Winter Wonderland, the only conclusion is be it's coming after 1.0

I'm curious what's the overall sales result at this moment. Let's conclude few things:
  • at daily event we have around 3800 players (let's asume it's a 85% of active-everyday players)
  • the game was sold from 25euro if I'm right in the first period (most likely to the biggest count of players and then after rx update for 35 e)
  • let's assume there's 10% of players that don't play at all - this gives us additional 600 ppl who bought the game
  • summing we have around 5000 people who bought the game.
  • 3000 x 25 = 75k, 2000 x 35 = 70k
I don't have a clue what's the average selling for  a rally game but I think it's not bad for an Early Access. Let's hope we'll have a huge amount of players buy the game after main release so Codies will be more willing to release a DLC.

About DLC...I was thinking yesterday that I would be even happy for new stages in Wales...it's the best location imho.

According to Steam Spy, 173,118 owners, plus or minus 11,477
Since Steam is the only way to get the game, that's something we can take as pretty accurate and should also take into account refunds, etc (if someone refunded the game, they no longer count as an owner).

"X competitors in the community events" says nothing about how many players are plays this game (but doesn't plays events) and how many players are just own the game (but doesn't plays at the moment).

have a look here http://steamspy.com/app/310560

says total sales of 173,118. maybe the buys and refunds has maybe made them look at making it a little easier.

i like v.2 but it has made the game overall a little easier.
