DiRTy Gossip

Recommended Posts

They did state that you'll get puddles in the holes/ruts on worn surface in rainy conditions.  They have also stated that track degradation affects grip levels as well as the track shape, so that answers the sealed surface question.
If the water effects carry over from dirt 4 it could make this quite challenging. The puddles on the edges of stages could really catch you out by pulling you to one side.

DiRT 4 was best on those 'drying' stages, with puddles everywhere and fresh sunshine coming through the trees. Never quite understood, why that was only in scripted stages and not an option to choose for custom events.

Yeah, that was really dumb. Hope it's selectable in DR2 or at least have it be as a consequence for picking rain in the previous stage.

Jon Armstrong answered a bunch of questions on his Instagram, and the spiciest bit of news was his intentionally vague answer about WRC cars... 

Its probably not gonna be current generation cars, but it seems like there will be more older cars. I hope the Citroen C4 comes back.

First look at Fiat 131 Abarth, and the Alpine 1600s is without official livery

No need to be angry. I think we all knew who was going to win sadly. In the end it felt very much like the 2007 season or the 2011 season.

This is a bit offtopic but it's so amazingly absurd I thought it'd be nice to share. Lamborghini Urus ST-X Concept. Rumored 650 CV and 850 nm for 1650 kg, ready to race in a specifical championship licenced by FIA on mixed surface circuits

Yea my heart sank in G.B when a marshal told me Tanak had binned it. Pretty sure I knew then who would take the crown. Been a good season though.

Thanks @jonny174 - those sort of comms are much appreciated!

a) nice official Fiat livery - makes me think the numbers on cars may not be editable in the same way as D4, although I can't remember how 'famous' liveries worked in that game
b) no competition livery on the Alpine
c) the USA mystery continues. It's not tarmac (Spain specifically mentioned), but there is a 'mixed surface' event (which may not be connected)
d) "lots of" new rallycross cars, make of that what you will
e) mention of multiple Subarus. Also, the Impreza from '95 does say "1995" in the car name...


Thanks @ShoMavtos

@Rallystu2 come on man, it's a forum about rally games and a rally driver's Instagram!

All the official liveries didn't have the ability to change numbers nor names.

Hey I'm not saying I'm angry at Jon. I'm angry at myself for being naive

Neuville said he would definitely win the season a month back. I guess he got bad luck from that.

WRC spoiler

I know it's a rally related forum but come on man, keep the WRC comments in the dedicated thread.

Credit for this spot goes to @RodgerDavies who posted this screengrab from the latest video:



In the confirmed car thread.

Looks like the Peugeot 208, Subaru WRX STI (gen unknown) and Renault Megane RS RX are all in the rallycross class. 

I am surprised to see the Subaru given that it hasn't appeared in World RX this year. Bryntesson and Chicheret shown in cars they have never driven, but I guess assigning the correct drivers to the correct cars is a detail that is yet to follow?

Also you can notice that the Peugeot 208 WRX has the old livery. Hopefully, they have still several weeks to fix it.

The Mégane RS RX is a nice surprise. It's probably the most interesting car of the 2018 championship.

Agreed. It's my assumption (perhaps wrongly) that if the game is to accurately reflect the 2018 Championship it won't include the Focus RS RX: the Megane would nicely fill that gap...

...that said, if the Subaru is in there then perhaps that is indicative that they are not strictly adhering to the 2018 entry lists and we will see the Focus return.

The fact that we will have the Megane RSRX makes my day. ??
I will sleep good now. Just hoping that all the 2018 cars will be there to complete what should be a really good official RX game. ?
