The Manta feels too big & heavy at the minute. It's easy to drive!  I can't wait until we get the V2 monster to wrestle!!
So it should feel big! Not sure how heavy the 400 was though.

It is a little boat-like, but it's very weird driving the V1 cars right now (i know the Grp B RWD cars are like 1.5 or something) but i'm trying to stay away from non V-2 physics at the moment.

The Manta is one thing, have you driven a Quattro lately???  It honestly feels like the clutch is slipping and its towing a horse box full of bricks :)

@Rallycameraman The G27 pedals are a lot better than the T300 i hear, i think you'll probably be fine with them and the 300 wheel.
T300 pedals are basically G27 pedals without the clutch. It's the G29 pedals that are a lot better ;) But on both G27 and T300 pedals you need to perform progressive brake mod to have a proper brake pedal. At least that's the info I gathered so far while checking which wheel should I be saving up for.
Thanks for that bit of info guys. I've already got a nixim brake mod, so looks like I won't need to bother with a pedal set, can just buy a wheel which is a bit cheaper!
In that case, those two things should interest you:

- http://www.thrustmaster.com/en_UK/products/t300-racing-wheel-servo-base

That rim supposedly feels insanely good in touch, though the price... yeah xD
Here's a review in case you're interested:

Always appreciate the work, Paul & Co - I have 246 hours as a #KeyBro it's great. :)
That is a good term. As a long-time SunBro I appreciate how you appropriated the term. Playing Dirt: Rally with a keyboard for any length of time  is definitely worthy of a special name for it.

Well, the hashtag term did come from Lee Williams, the former CM. (The little teasing bastard) :D

Or get an adapter from Derek Speare that lets you use any real life rim with the same bolt pattern as momo, sparco, omp etc. The only problem is the lacking mouse support atm as you lose all buttons on the wheel.

Probably nothing, maybe it's something, and most likely always been there but I hadn't noticed til earlier. I do know not all games have it though.


Why don't images show up anymore when I add an image url?

On the line of icons above where you post is a white block with a turned down corner, click on that and enter the url there. ;)

That's what I'm talking about, I past the url there, hit enter, see it for a split second in the post, then it's gone. Or paste it in there, finish writing the post, then post comment, it doesn't show up. I've tried restarting the browser, clearing cache when it happens, nothing.

Mine does the same, the image blinks for a second when publishing the post, but doesn't appear.  If I enter the URL, it just sits there in the box, it doesn't feature on the post

Hmm, it's not something I've noticed before. The DLC link on Steam isn't something that's just there for all games, even ones which have it planned. MGS5 only got the DLC link a couple of days before it's DLC was launched.
I'd like to think it has meaning, but with it appearing this early it seems more likely to be an error.

It's been there all the time, or at least for a very long time now. I would say from Tarmac Terrors at least, but not 100% sure about that so don't quote me on this one ;)

That does look cool. Without the motion simulator it wouldn't be very easy to do though, as a you will often be relying on the movement of the car when reading notes, as you tend to spend a lot of time looking down!

Well you can't when going slow....

& why'd no one tell me how much fun the Kadette is with interior view & H shifter & clutch!!

So one of my friends thinks DiRT should've used updated RBR physics. Apparently you can't slide the car in DiRT  :|
Do they mean *they* can't slide the car in dirt?
