DiRTy Gossip

Recommended Posts

I do hope come the evening of Friday it's just a matter of opinion the gravel handling isn't where it should be because see if it isn't and if we have a Tory government I think I'll have a mental breakdown. In the grand scheme of things I'd rather have handling that needs tweaking than have "THEM" in office again.

From my point of view, it depens on the car and the type of car you are using. Yesterday I tried the Alpine on rain in wales and the car was very grippy but I think the weight of the car played a major. I also tried fiesta r5 and again it was grippy but like a WRC car in Dirt Rally. The Rallycross feels amazing, way better than in Dirt Rally. I think that overall, it may be a little more grippy than Dirt Rally but not by much. Then again, they worked with Kris Meeke to developp the handling so I think that what we have in Dirt 4 is maybe near reality. Sorry for my english im french canadian
The Fiesta R5 is a joy, the car squatting at the front under braking and spinning the back round just feels so right with getting the car in the right direction!
Exactly, in Dirt Rally I was always using the handbrake to rotate the car but in dirt 4 you don't need it, you just have to brake at the right time and the car will rotate into the corner
Thanks @badaboum528 I really appreciate your reply :) Both your quotes above are encouraging, especialy what you said about car rotation and not needing the handbrake so much as Dirt Rally, that sounds like an excellent improvment, because I also felt the handbrake was needed a bit too much at times in DR.

I wasn't 100% sure if we had said a time or not, I did not want to be the one making an unintended announcement!

Christina's time is correct.
it still says that it will be out on the 10th on steam when looking fom new zealand, 00:00 bst on the 9th is 11am nz time on the 9th so whats up with that?
Yep, Steam page in Australia still says "Available 10th June" :frowning: But the funny thing is just a bit above on the same page it says: release 9th June? :neutral:

@tbtstt I've spoke to Tesco, they said that it should be delivered on Friday, but they said they're looking into why it hasn't been dispatched yet and will get back to me soon, so I'll let you know the outcome

The Evo VI is a little beast. Feels instantly fast out of the box, and sounds great too. Even the R4 Evo felt more alert and agile than in DR.

Conversely, I felt the 95 Impreza handled like a bag of ****. Needs some set-up work for sure. Felt like there were two bodies in the trunk.

Why do you think the most famous of Colin McRae quotes is "If in doubt, flat out?" xD :D

@Teuchter the gravel feels fine. Feels right IMO. Australia, Wales and Michigan, at least with a controller (Sim, no assist) are a pleasure.
Spain on tarmac definitely feels different to DR. I need to give it time to 'click' I guess, but there is definitely a difference between Spain and say Monte or Germany.

Heard some people that are playing say that there is too much lateral grip but what Id like to know is

1) Do you agree with this?
2) If so, is this worse than in Dirt Rally or is it improved?
3) What do you think about grip levels in general on gravel?

Cheers :smiley:

And upgrades on the car change the handling, a lot. My 2001 Subaru had the 'too much grip' problem, bogging down 2/3rds of the way round hairpins while running C grade parts. Upgraded it to B grade parts and the problem went away.

Nope. Upgrades are all about part durability not performance.

That question was answered like 3 times in the chaos, Skiddy. :P Yer be skidding mate.

 If only i had spare 60 euros for the game, want to test how this handling likes KB, even though it is mostly refined DR.

Awesome. I spotted a flock of bright green parrots fly across me in Australia at sunset today.
Love these details.
Ahem! That would be budgies.
I'm so glad we call them by the proper name of "Bird" in America. I'd also assume they are parrots and not birds like parakeets...

I find the Evo extremely prone to understeer, no matter how I set it up. Once you get a nice slide going the back end regains grip and straightens the car.

Porkhammer slides all over the stage after being annoyed with "too much grip" questions and comments (myself included, sorry.) Haha.

Tarmac isn't the surface people have remarks on though. The RWD's powerslides great on tarmac ;)
