It would just make no sense to put 2l cars in 2010s class. '11 WRC cars had more changes than the engine displacement, for example the lack of electronic driving aids and they also started to use cars from B-segment instead of C.
You do realise that engine displacement doesn't matter? The cars still produce 300BHP anyway and they have the same weight limit. Suspension is newer on '11 ones but like you mentioned restrictions came regarding electronic aids, so it should level out nicely.

Putting an '07 car against an '01 ones is a complete and utter nonsense.
But if that's the case, and they are also adding the C4 , then that would alreay add up to 1300k for just these two cars. which would mean only two R4 cars, no modern WRC cars like the Polo and a total of 4 cars for a pure car update...
seems unlikely

But I agree that the 07 Focus doesn't really fit any class (since we know only R4 will be a new class due to the achievments). BUT IF it is in this update (which seems so considering Pauls tweet) then it will be in the 2000's . For one simple reason : It was built and used before 2010, which means it can't logically be in 2010's class. 
So assuming every class gets an achievemnt, that means either the Focus will be in 2000's or it will not be in this update
Why Focus 2007? Why not Focus 2010, like in DiRT3?
Because Steve Perez car is '07 and it is the car that they used is it, to make a realistic game you need real data, and the data is from a '07 not a '10  :)
But it could be just Ford Focus WRC 06-10 at all, not Steve's one . Picture is a picture.  BTW, I don't thnk that Focus will be included in Modern Masters
Release today? Why not, it"s Wednesday
They used Perez's focus way back last year sometime for recording audio sounds and probably other stuff, which is why it's a good guess it's the 07 focus

Well, next week it is then. Just hope those 1.5 mil are what you need to get started in the Modern Masters and not what you need for the whole thing. Otherwise, some nice cars might be missing and 6, like I said, isn't a high number at all for a pack dedicated to cars.

It will be the total, no way R4s are going to cost nearly 3x the most expensive cars currently in game! Probably 4 or 5 cars. Whether that's 'high' or 'low' is only judged by their past output, not by any other particular figure.

I was comparing to previous DiRT Rally releases. We had 5 new cars on Tarmac Terrors and that wasn't a car-only update, so that's why I say 6 is a nice number.

Was it not mentioned previously that the R4 cars were to attract entry level gamers with something more exciting than a Mini or Lancia?  If they are to be for the Learner Ralliers amongst us, would their price not have to be Entry Level also?  I don't see them being expensive at all.  Which leads me to believe the pack will have much more than just R4 cars (actually, I am hoping I am right).

That's a pretty good point.
Considering that new players have 50k IGC it could mean that R4 would be a little bit more expensive as a second car to go if someone doesn't prefer older models and want to switch quickly (~75-125k). Then we could really have 3-4 R4, 1x 2000, 1x2010 :)

P.S. Wasn't it R2 that should be for newbies?

The twitter conversation is about Dirt show not the update.Yes,up to this moment all updates have a Dirt Show the same day but there may be differences this time(ex a new-new commmunity manager taking over from Monday etc).Plus they havent wiped out the date on the timeline so lets hope for today.

Escort Mk2 2.5 Millington                                 1x 225,000


Now, that's what I call a car pack....   :)

Today's date is still in the timeline after Paul said someone was trolling. On Monday they deleted the date when someone told him the timeline said 26th october... 
I think that he trolls about someone trolling because someone trolled with a wrong branch update into website.
Wasn't that 28th before removal?

I need to save credits as crazy.... I put all my resources and efforts to have all actual cars fully upgraded, and the bleeding from perks + engineers contracts left me a balance of just 400k credits :(

If update comes today, cool

If not, I´ll be able to complete a rally Master champ I got started with the 2010 Fiesta. 

...bah... didnt even started the weeklies LOL
DR is like a succubus, its stealing my lifetime

Ouch.. the weeklies, yes.
I only own the Sierra Cosworth for the 80s weeklies.

I really can't drive the thing anymore since v2. Last monthlies I had to drive it too and I was forced to reset the event three times. Even then I didn't finish it because I had a little *cough* accident in a corner, in Greece, and it trashed my car.

@leewalt17 @dirtgame Well sort of... we can't call them WRC cars though because of licensing.

Do YOU realise that BHP number of the engine isn't the only ability what tells about cars performance. The torque curve is in completely different class and it affects to the power curve also. Peak power doesn't matter at all because you use slightly more different revs than only the exact one which produces the maximum power.

Which is exactly why the Focus fits in the 2010s. It has more torque than the '11 ones, but they have advantage in the suspension. Another thing, the '11 ones have a more sustained power delivery, as in the "peak power" being attained sooner and for longer, at the loss of torque nonetheless.

All in all, the '07 Focus should be a rather really nice competition for the '11 Fiesta. Then again, it may be '09 Focus and not the '07 one. Until it's released, all we are going is that is a Focus Mk2, anything else can be just a trolling from KickUp. One last thing, is that the Focus is on the 2010s in the periodic table. That table have proven to be correct every single time, so I have no reasons to doubt it will be correct this time as well.

Maybe they will divide the 2010 class into two classes like Group B with the RWD class so you'll have a 2010 1.6 and a 2010 2.0 class. Yeah I know we only get one new class, maybe they don't consider splitting a class as a true new class.
Put them all in the same class, they run together in real rally's as is

The car classes aren't exactly balanced as it is.
It's not exactly 'fair' that the Audi Sport Quattro Rallye is up against the Lancia Delta S4 and Peugeot 205 Evo 2, but that's how it is in Group B.
The 07 Focus is a car from the 2000s, so it seems pretty obvious where its going to go, balanced or not.
The game isn't going to have online multiplayer in rally, so balance doesn't even really matter.

That wasn't a split though. Group B RWD was a new class that was introduced with a new achievement (We The Terrors).
There's no new achievement, so the 07 Focus is going into an existing class.
