So they deleted the tweet, that's fishy... 

Something wrong with the Focus or what?:

Am I the only one who prefer the fantasy livery art from Dirt 3 over every single skin made for Dirt Rally? Seriously, probably the only one I like is the Coleman/Tucker Impreza (which by the way is real, but I don't know if it was real before being included in D3). There's something in the color palette and the design which is quite retro and un-"rallystic".

It sounds like a complaint, not really, but it would be nice to have some limited in game customizable features like need for speed does with their cars, even Grid series did this.  

Maybe the VTsportscar upgraded fenders option would cost $xxxxx credits and allow some suspension performance gains.  

Also so limited skin n customization too, i know this is fluff to some but features do add value.  

I am still jumping up and down S14 is now part of it now.

Ok,I will get a ton of flack for this but nonetheless it has to be said.Reusing DIRT3 assets is getting out of hand.And was it so difficult to change the front bumper of the Focus to make it look like 07 spec?Open class Impreza?Seriously?You have a partnenship with JRM and you dont use it to get the real R4 Impreza and put in an impostor?Why not change the Mini to the 2011 spec car(already the 3d is there)?Make the Fiesta 2012 spec(just a mirror change).Finally,reusing assets but how about adding the 3 F1 tracks that are used by WRX?I am really sorry but the game is quickly looking like something gathered to save Codies from financial collapse.

If a WRC team can re-use existing assets to build their cars, why cant a game maker do the same?  Why waste time and resources to re-make something that exists, just to change a small insignificant part of it?

The feel of the game, the sounds and stages are new and pretty damn impressive.  Relax!!!

Let the guys get the bare bones in place, if they feel the need to give the visuals a makeover once all the hard work is done, thats ok.  But at this point, what you are complaining about is trivial....

Codies, just remove the wing!! Instead it is a wrc, if that is the r4 class, it is a big mistake, because that is an open class not an r4, please remove it!!!!!!!!! Or put it in 2000's class
honestly, I would love to have the short hatchback in both Versions:
1x big wing WRC Petter Solberg
1x small wing R4 Toshio Arai IRC
Yes, obviously, both is better but if just r4 and with that wing, it is a HUGE mistake in a game that is trying to change from arcade to sim.
I hope it is wrc version.

No but seriously... it's no big deal. If they can't get the correct license to make the changes people request, there is absolutely nothing that can be done. They're doing their best to make the game as authentic as possible. Try to enjoy it instead of nitpicking.

No the N4 doesn't have a big wing like that, this is the S14 WRC,

s14 wrc has a different bumbers, bonnet and shape. It's R4.


No its the WRC version,
To be 100% correctly its the Rallyteam USA Subaru:

Its based on the Suabru Impreza N14 WRC, but since they drive in open class in the USA its modified. ( thats why it has an other bumper.

Its deffently not an N14 R4,
This is for example an N14 R4 , totally diffrent!

Think people are forgetting DiRT Rally is an experiment with a limited budget. One that management have never particularly had a lot of faith in.
It was a fight to get DiRT Rally made at all to try and prove a point that people wanted a more simulation orientated rally experience.

So the totally "new class we will have to master" is  an USA based open class ?

This!

Be thankful, we could of had Dirt 4 right now, which would probably have even more re-worked stuff from D3! Not that I would have minded Dirt 4, but Dirt Rally is waaaaaaaaaaaaay better!

Nope. R4.
Nope. Named R4 but based in USA open class, which i cant understand because R4 and Open have if i am correct informed, more than 100hp more than r4's

It's similar to WRC, but still not a true Impreza WRC. Yeah, maybe you're right. Also this is Ken Block's Impreza from Dirt 2. And Codies called it The R4 car..Grazie...

The Vermont prepared hatch STI (as used by SRT USA in the Rally America series) is not a World Rally Car, nor is it WRC spec. The Rally America Open class roughly equates to Group A. (I've never looked into it, but I would think that the Open class regulations and R4 would be broadly similar. )

I await correction from someone at CM (or anyone else who knows what they are talking about), but this...



...is not an S14 WRC. The bodywork is wrong. It looks exactly like one the Vermont Open class STI's to me. 

As said above, ditch that rear wing in favour of a standard one and that would bring it much closer to the look of the R4 WRX STI.

Okey, matching the shapes from DR and reality gives us this info

"At the car’s heart is a 2.0-liter, turbocharged flat-four engine (based on that of the Japanese-spec STI) capable of converting race fuel into 500 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque."



>5
00 hp
>R4

Seems like Codies doesn't care at rally fans

GIVE ME MORE SUBARU BURGLE. *rumbling noises*
Such noise, much wow, BIG WING. Oh crap i hit a low tree branch while drifting the Subaru. D:

Codies are doing their best, the game is brilliant with what we have and will only improve, just remember licensing is finicky and they are doing their damn best with it.
*burgles away.*

The Group N and WRC Impreza's all use equal length headers: so there will be less rumble.

@tbtstt I'll let you confirm, but this is off.  SRTUSA runs about 350hp and 400+ torque in a 2.5.  Never been a 2.0 spec 500hp/tq in this gen car

Sorry, where are you getting those numbers from @franklyshankly ? To my knowledge no Impreza rally car is producing anything like 500 BHP...

Grow up please.

It's one thing to state your reason and point (I agree with you that it would be better without the wing), but there's no need for the passive aggressivism on that level. If that were the case, we wouldn't have this great game.
No, it's not the only one. How about a wrong Impreza 01 interior, Mini Concept (okey WRC licence), wrong Impreza 1995 interior, autumn Finland stages...I agree DR is a true rally sim, but there are few stupid things which really makes disappoint

You don't deserve any awnser but I will tell you this. Think about twice before you write anything here. Do you really think that If Codies doesn't care at rally fans they would release a game with Early Acess adding features that the community asks, correcting the FFB and the physics to approach the reality? Well I think you know the answer! There is NO game in the past 10 years that did what Codies is doing with DR! You don't even know If this "problem" can be corrected or If it's a problem after all...

Well 350hp are more than a R4 and more than the actual WRC champion car, who actually produce more or less 325hp

The Vermont rallycross cars are 2.0L and produce in excess of 500 BHP @gfRally . There has never been figures like that from a Open class rally car, in fact I'd go as far as saying it's impossible with the restrictor size mandated in the Open class. 

I'm not sure what engine the Open class cars run. I actually thought it was 2.0L, not 2.5L? I would think your figures are about right though. 320+ BHP and 400+ Ft. Lbs.

Obvious answer from DR fan, I didn't wanted to hurt you. :)
