Hm, looks like Codemasters need to remoddel their R5 a little bit to have it the same as the real deal. Will be interesting if this livery will come to DR2.0
I don't see why not. There's still over 4 months to go, plenty of time to make it. Heck, I could do it in a few days :D  
I don't think they'll do it, unfortunately. Probably due to licensing. And the fact that that the cover art is already done.
The cover can stay the same, this just could be an aditional skin for the Polo R5

What I was talking about was not the skin, but the model of the car. The front bumper for example is different.

Nice livery For Solbergs Polo R5

Not sure if the camera angle affects this but the steering column seems very short from the dash to the steering wheel compared to Fiesta R5 for example.

Just realized that after all this VR support talk the only thing missing anymore is the helicopter camera view guy who filled this thread about posts how the first WRC game on PS2 had perfect heli-cam prior to DiRT 4 release :D
Oh man, forgot about that guy, or the infamous water splash debate.
#Watergate all over again. ::smiley:
#NoHeliNoBuy I like the memes we create in our own little community.

Good old days...

From the sith axis interview:
Argentina’s a good one, New Zealand, Poland and Australia are what we’ve got for loose surfaces
Noice. So USA and Spain will be mainly Tarmac. 
Or the USA will be Snow stages?
There really has only one tarmac rally in the USA (now gravel only) is Empire State Performance Rally or ESPR in the State of New York.  It is held in the fall of the year or has been for a few.   Interestingly its only about 5-6 hrs away from trois-riviers in Canada, they do not go on at the same time, but if the art team was scouting locations, its not a far trip.   Michigan on tarmac would just not work if you were trying to have any authenticity, its never happened there.  I hope that Codemasters keep US rally locations real and not made up.

EDIT:  there is a single stage in the Oregon Trail Rally but you really can’t base a location from that regarding tarmac.

@RallyDriven what happened? Binned it on day 1?!
Yeah. Stages were incredibly rough. Penmachno absolutely destroyed the car, collapsed front suspension and damaged gearbox or diff. Then we hit a huge rock two corners into slate mountain which put the nail in the coffin by breaking the steering arm. Even if we had made it through I don’t think we could have restarted. Pretty shit day. There was a nasty accident in Brenig and we got stopped by a red flag halfway through.

Heading to dyfnant tomorrow to go watch

That sucks man, I hope you manage to repair everything. Out of interest, how many times have things been repaired on that car and it still runs? Having never competed I don't know how much these cars go through.

Yea I saw Brenig got red flagged. Didn't realise it would be so bumpy! That's a real shame I was looking forward to seeing you tearing up Garth. Next time buddy!

Saw the picture on GB spectator forum. Took some punishment.

Wait... who was it that threatened to put a big rock in the road?
Someones missing a blackened eye. ;)

Cheers! This car has had a rough life, but never had too much damage. Mostly suspension and under car protection. Been through a few sump and fuel tank guards! We normally try and repair as much as we can!

If he put some of these rocks there then fair play, I’m not punching him in the face!

Eh, just your regular Mongo could solve that.

Tried to play DiRT 4 once more. Man, I still can't understand why it end up like this. I'm one of those who thinks Your Stage was a really cool feature, but handling always gives me "That's just plain wrong. Same folks made DiRT Rally, what happened?".
This time I'd really like to try demo of DR 2.0 first (whatever if it's planned or not) since d4 made a lot of damage to franchise (just my opinion) and part of me is regretting buying it.
