The John player special stuff is probably more for the older ones among us, but here's what they're aiming for.  I dislike the D+ part though, that just looks cheesy.

next Tuesday is season one at the end and still no announcement what is coming in season two

As much as I like the rallies from Dirt Rally it would be much nicer new Rally Locations for Season Two!

And I hope for both the Peugot 206 and Citroen Xasra both Rally WM winner

Well the latest cars were those I was looking forward to most in season one and I haven't been disappointed. 

Spent a lot of time in the Focus last night and have already bested several of my 2000cc stage records. On multiple runs I think the C4 is quicker, but I find the Focus much less twitchy than the C4 and far easier to be consistent in*.  

(* that said, I managed to run into a bank three corners into the daily yesterday and give myself a puncture!)

I did hit on the hay bale on the left hand turn and messed my front wheel there. Because of that I did hit a tree later (excuses). :classic_laugh:

Why does not the Nissan Datsun have a team livery except the first one?
Unfortunately, all cars in the 2000 class have only 4 liveries

Licensing restrictions.

It's exceptionally 80's, which is never something to strive for.

I was doing time trials and noticed that someone have done ridiculously fast time. I pushed my mk2 Escort as hard as I possibly can when I tried to see how that is even possible, and I didn't come even close. :classic_laugh:

Is that now the so called alien? I'm still baffled how someone can make time like that.

Depends, but at a quick glance I see that as a "real" time. Poland is notorious for some of the cuts, but P1 time isn't far enough ahead for me to think they took anything to egregious. Since looking at just the top 10 has a 30 second split between P2 and P10, it looks like those TT boards haven't been hammered too hard yet. It's also a Long so there is A LOT of road in there to mess up small stuff and lose time. 

 

But yes, welcome to the fun part of Dirt Rally where we defend the Earth's pride against these damn aliens!

Anyone got to masters in Career yet?

Am quite struggling with Elite Level, now finishing first season probably at least in the Top 10, but nowhere near the Top 3. Not won a single Rally and only a handful of stages (which were in the Top 200 World Times to do so.) So I am curious how fast Masters is? Elite is already far beyond DR1's Masters. Although I like it, Times are all realistic and very close together,  fells like driving in WRC. Although I expected this Level at Masters and not at Elite already, getting scared for Masters now XD

Also, anyone figured out the optimal Engine Upgrade to go with for long Events? The highest seems to degrade quite quickly and you don't really have an option to repair it during a Rally. So maybe Something like Level 4 instead of 6 would be a better Sweet Spot for 10 or 12 Stage Rallies ?

I'm currently on my way to winning masters in R5 class. It's my fourth try though so it was very challenging and it's possible only because I basically memorised all the stages at this point. Without it winning masters would be near impossible as pace notes in this game are very inconsistent and you often crash, if you don't know the stages and drive anywhere near the limit, because of corner angles very often being plain wrong.

As to engine upgrades, I never thought about it that way. Definetely worth investigating.
