Anyone know why Christina's Twitter account is gone? Even the cached Google copy throws a 404.

I see Jenny posting but nothing from Christina for a while, then I see the missing Twitter profile, and I go "hmmm"...

Still there afaik?

I did not compare the traction to dr1. If those tires would work as they should then there would be LOT of grip. 

There are sooooo many factors to the grip levels on ice and snow. Dependant on era, road conditions etc etc. 

There is lots of grip, the grip is just different compared to other surfaces. See the clip below, there are lots of grip, but lots of wheel slip as well. 

If I have to complain about something it is that Sweden in these games are just too bumpy. IRL Swedish roads are really flowing. The bumpiness kinda ruin that at times.

Just done the daily AI challenge - Poland. 10mile stage really fast and flowing in the Evo 6. Graphics seemed sharper than before on standard Xbox.  Still came 400th or thereabouts. 😕

400th on the AI challenge? Sounds like you could use a little practice

I feel bad for you if you hear voices in the surface sounds man, I really do. 

Well, why can't it be set to 0? For some reason the smallest value of 50. Some Codemasters stuff again?

Try mk2 Escort in Sweden and you know what I mean, if you have any experience with studded rally tires.

you starting to convince me, yesterday i did the weekly B rwd in sweden and effectively there is not much grip, even if you are gently with the throttle.  a bit more grip would be correct

I think it's about right personally. I like it anyway. Wouldn't mind more ffb though. Something a little closer to a gravel event.

The traction should be closer to a gravel event. :classic_laugh: Sorry if I sound like a broken record, but i'm not trying to tell how I think the grip works with those tires, I know how much grip those type of studded tires have. I haven't driven a car with those types of tires, but I have been in a car with studded rally tires. In a historic rally mk2 Escort ( my friend didn't let me drive it as it's his baby) and in 242 ice track racing volvo, which I had opportunity to drive but I had my right hand in sling and couldn't use shifter, so I had to just sit in passenger seat and enjoy the ride. The amount of grip is mind-boggling.

If there is more wrc/ 2000 cars coming which was hinted at on jons Instagram might have a chance with the fiesta

I'm afraid not, the 2010 car was the start of the new regulations (2011), it also wouldn't fit with the 2000's class.  We will be getting more 2000's WRC cars though, in fact we're getting two more in a couple of weeks.

Those are in the end of the 2000s though. Was expecting to get some early 2000s cars. Everyone "knows" the Focus 2001 and Impreza 2001 are coming sooner or later, but it'd be a load of fresh air to see new ones come with them like the 2001's 206 and the 2001 Xsara, to keep things balanced among these cars, because 2003 onwards the Xsara is a lot stronger and the 2001 version already has the WRC facelift.

Yes well you see. I'm not as hardcore as the rest of you and I'm on an Xbox controller. But I still love the game. Came 80 something on another challenge tho.

I didn't mean to offend or anything. I was being ironic because I think you confused AI challenge with community challenge, as the last place on AI challenge is 30.

(edit: I'm not hardcore either, I play with PS4 controller and I don't hope to ever reach alien times)

No offence taken at all, I know I'll never get close to the best times, but I'll enjoy trying.
