@KickUp Doing yesterday's daylies, I was reminded of something - how about the handbrake being disabled on cars that effectively didn't have one, like the Group B cars? Any chance of that happening? Would be fun for the authenticity AND challenge sake :)
Probably not, mainly because we're not racing in those time periods, merely with cars *from* then, which have since all been retro fitted with hydraulic systems.
Yeah but having working handbrake in an 4WD/AWD car requires active center diff, doesn't it?

More or less that. You have to have a Center Diff. but could be mechanical. If the center diff is not present, you end up blocking all for wheels (That's what happened to the Gr.B cars) In the Gr.A era cars had mechanical center diffs, so you had to stump the clutch in order to free the rear diff, or else you ended up with a broken rear diff. I know for a fact that in the Gr.N Evo's the first with a Active Center Diff was the Evo 7.... regarding other cars, I don't have a clue

Finished watching DiRT Show, good one. I don't think I have any questions left, probably :p
Rally location list screen at 12:55 is interesting, though. Also, slider bellow got me thinking that there're even more than 6 locations.

But, as this is a gossip thread, any wild guesses yet? I'm pretty sure 6th location is starting with M or N (and I'm talking about a country as well), take your pick:
  • Macau.
  • Macedonia.
  • Madagascar.
  • Malawi.
  • Malaysia.
  • Maldives.
  • Mali.
  • Malta.
  • Monaco
  • Morocco
  • Namibia
  • Nauru
  • Netherlands
  • Nepal
  • Nicaragua
  • Niger
  • Nigeria
  • North Korea (yeah, must be this one :D)
  • Norway
  • New Zealand

Hah, you forgot "mystery" :D  

But yeah, i think that's a 'surprise me' option, not another location.

Nah, they woudn't be so cruel, and they surely left something for gossipers there. List updated with N, by the way.
Okay, I'm terrible at guessing but i'd pick New Zealand, Norway, Malaysia or Malta.

Somerset Stages! That takes me back. I did that in my Twin Cam in'72 or '73.

A blast from the past, did it 78 /79 in my Mexico, DNF both events !!

Cjl9 did you see my post a few pages back ?  I posted links to the Vatanen Rothmans Escort livery amongst others for you.

Yes, yes I did. Thank you.

I'm actually reminded... does @KickUp stain his face? How is his beard that thick and black while being so short? I've seen a fair amount of beards in my time, but his looks insane.
Hehehe. I don't stain my face or use a permanent marker. 
Groucho Marx used shoe polish.

It is definitely not a trick to get people to come in and wash our cars.
I don't know, you guys have some interesting cars right? I could even wear a bikini.
Be right back:


waits for @tbtstt to return with his one remaining good eye...








Holy crap, I thought this was just a gross photoshop until I remembered what this actually was.
What a weird music video. And crappy song.

Michigan returns from D3, so maybe Kenya will return as well as 6th location?
A lot of people were asking for the Safari rally for DR if I remember correctly.

That's pages 634 and 745 of the DiRTy Gossip thread that I'll never be visiting again...

Well if they'd manage to get some Volvos D4 will "sälja som smör" in Sweden, that's for sure.
