Well as you've asked @JZStudios, I'll tell you...

My dislike for Neil Cole started over a decade ago when Dave (that's a TV channel we have here in the UK) started showing coverage of the WRC. The coverage of the WRC was hosted by two presenters, one of whom was Neil Cole. At that time I found his presenting style stilted and he didn't seem to have any real understanding - or passion - for what he was commenting on. I found it rather frustrating that, when they were many better rally presenters available in the UK, they were using him..

...fast forward a decade and he continues to get presenting jobs - many of which involve motorsport and most recently the World Rallycross - yet his delivery is still as unenthusiastic - and he is seemingly as uninformed - as he was all those years ago.  Compare him to Ed Leigh (who did the WRC coverage back in the day) or Andrew Coley (who does the World Rallycross) and you'll see what I mean: two presenters who clearly have enthusiasm and passion for what they are doing. 


NB: Fun Neil Cole story for you: I was fortunate enough to be at the DiRT 3 launch event at Battersea power station a few years ago and, after watching the launch, I settled down to get my hands on the game for the first time and who decided to sit down next at the console next to me?...

...Neil ******* Cole, that's who. I then had to endure 10 minutes of him re-doing a 30 second piece to the camera and spouting utter nonsense. I contemplated hitting him with the controller I had in my hands on more than one occasion, but I was aware that a camera was rolling and that it was a waste of a good controller. 

Dave is a TV channel? You people are weird.

Either way, I guess I don't follow sports enough to know or care who the presenters are, or be excited about them. People ***** about the usual guy, and then you hate this guy. Don't like the hype man, don't like the straight man.

I honestly have no opinion on him other than he's less annoying than Forrest. I really just spent my time watching Mr. The Block be the absolute worst at rally and genuinely garbage human being.

Below the video from my attempt in Argentina.
Here are few more locations from Masters tier in Focus01 (New Zealand is uploading) There are more locations with rainy weather but not as much rainy as in video below.
Does it look like on your end?

TBH I don't know 🙂 I've bought the cooler almost at the same time. As far as I remember I bought it to limit a noise level generated by factory cooler. Also for potential OC. I can give you temperatures while driving DR2 if you want.

Is that "heavy rain" conditions ? cause in heavy rain I see much more rain than this and I mean a lot more man

0:28 the Scandinavian flick 🙂 Lovely !

Too bad my friend lost a video of me and my friend beating our cars at ice track. I used to daily drive my 80's Oldsmobile and sliding around the corners with it was fun af. As it is an automatic and I don't like to use the e-brake on those cars the only way to get it to a massive slide was a scandi flick. It looks so majestic when +5m long american land yacht performs scandinavian flick. :classic_laugh:

These was the cars we drove on the ice track.

The black one is mine.

I might have driven my cars like I stole them even before that. :classic_rolleyes:

54 ??? Wow mine arrives at 90 degrees while playing DR2. It is within the operable temperature of a GTX 1080ti I read.

my MSI Armour 1070Ti gets to around 73C when playing and recording in VR on El Rodeo, I have overclocked it somewhat however to try to keep up with the demands of VR.

Just picked a random leaderboard, the highest places Ascona and 240Z are 31 seconds slower than the fastest time.

yeah, but that's because you only see the fastest time each top player can do, so it'll be with the fastest car in the class. they can generally do times that are within a couple of seconds of their best time with slower vehicles in the class.

for example, GTR Technical's best time in El Rodeo in NR4 is 2:16.820, which is 3rd overall, with the Evo X (obviously). his best time on the same route with the STi? 2:18.740, which would be 9th. you can go through his setup videos of slower cars in each class in every location, and he shows you the difference between his best time in that car and his best time in the class, and then shows you his spot on the leaderboard (almost always top 3). his best time with a slower car is always very, very close behind - both in time and in leaderboard positions.

In other news, the current Dailies allow non-DLC owners to try Finland in a H2 RWD vehicle. Needless to say, the achievement "Finnesse: roll your car over and continue in Finland" was achieved within the first shakedown run

yep, same, except I was in online multiplayer the day it came out. ultra fun. I did quite well in that Promo Daily. nearly got Tier 1 with a keyboard! 😮

I guess it was. I recorded for you TT a few mins ago (see below)
At the end you can see temp of GPU (54*)

 

 

I see a damn lot of rain more. As soon as I get back home from the office I am going to record a video for you. Same weather conditions, same track. I have double the rain on the windshield seriously.

Right, there is that. So the Ascona and 240Z are not quite as slow as the leaderboards would suggest.

While some will set their PB in a less-favoured car, competition at the top of any game’s leaderboard is about optimisation.

Why sweat it out to gain 2 seconds when picking different car gives you that already, and that effort you out in can be used to go 2 more seconds ahead?

The more I use the Focus ‘01 and more i’m convinced that this engine sound it’s perfect for the Fabia ‘05...

Surely it deserves its own sound instead of a copy-paste from a different sounding car in the same class. This is the sound of Fabia WRC:

No?! You say?! He deserves it? That in the video is the real sound?! 😮 never thought about that....i’m Talking about a better and more close momentarily replacement you smartass(they already said that they can’t find the real one at the moment if i’m Not wrong)either the focus 01 seems to be not the real legit one,but it’s similar to the real fabia sound. I am asking for that sound since the car release...don’t tell me that he deserve the legit sound,i’m The first that is ******

Take a chill pill dude. I want real sounds for the car as much as you so not much point raging at me. Didn't know you are talking about a "momentarily replacement" since you didn't say that, what you literally just said is that the Focus '01 sound is perfect for the car.

Me neither...i have tried but I simply can’t drive Colins Fabia with the Focus engine sound...it’s a real shame,the car model it’s actually pretty darn good.

Codies use instead the focus ‘01 sound if for whatever reasons you can’t rec. the real one...it’s way more suitable.

We already have talk about that recently,and my post it’s literally next to yours.you can’t say you didn’t see that or another one about this argument.

edit: i’m Absolutely chill,like almost always
