Did you know that the long-time members of this thread have had a DiRTy Gossip Discord server for a while?

You do now 😉

well i think some are back to work tomorrow so maybe some sold gossip then.

only thing at moment im not liking is the amount of cheats. hopefully the times are wiped for those and those players removed. many tracks are pointless even attempting top 5s now as the cheats have many of those . which is sad.

That Citroen BX is surely missing in thr game. I drove it in WRC 3, it oversteered a lot mainly because of its RWD designed specifically to the game (lol) but sadly it sounded like popcorn. What a botch and a waste of car to such studio.

Never underestimate the creativity of Belgians. :lol: If there is a way, we will find it.
Can hardly forget a certain Fin though.



“I almost burned my legs and hands while doing it. I throttled the engine by hand. Smoke was coming from my gloves so I had to change hands frequently. But I didn´t give up, no matter how much it hurt.”
Who says bonnet cam is unrealistic?
In one of @KickUp s absolute fav cars too. Get yourself an Action Man and a little wireless camera for POV and he can live this with his RC Delta.

(Haven't been drunk over New Year or anything fun. After getting the hell out of here for a while, decided that after a good lunch, the 1st was a good day to format my PC and swap out the 4TB HDD for a 4TB SSHD and replace the useless 16GB Cache SSD with a 1TB SSD then give it all a complete reformat. Only just about getting back up to speed now thanks to some complications, but my is a freshly formatted PC and Windows install nice once you've gotten everything updated and things reinstalled).
Sidenote: EVGA, why on earth would you put those little clear sticker things on the fans of your GPU? No benefit and so easy to miss. They've been in my PC for nearly two years before the compressed air blew them off.

Happy New year gossipers!

New Years Resolution: let's talk more Gossip, stop trying to correct each other, it's really not that important beyond having a little fun with each other.  

I think this thread has lost it purpose a little. 

Missing Lee feeding us hints and keeping us guessing.  
I'll try, but I can't promise that if someone mentions a 22B I won't crack @gfRally...

We already have most of the Group B cars. And I don't think anybody is waiting too eagerly for the Citroen BX 4x4.
The BX is like the Peugeot 307 WRC of the Group B era: it would certainly add to the numbers, but it's hard to get excited about it!

Well said.

On the other hand, there are a few forgotten - meaning not so successful - cars I would really like to get my hands on. For example the Nissan Sunny, Mitsubishi Galant or Mazda 323 in Group A, Hyundai Accent in WRC and so on.

Oh and of course, we can't forget about this one:

I spent nearly 20 hours straight in a bar. Granted I was refinishing the bar top given we only had the one night to do it. I then got in trouble the next day at work because I decided that 15 minutes of sleep I got wasn't enough so I slept through a meeting.

I actually love this car, it's always fun to see.  

Standing in the woods and hearing it from a far, kind of catches you off guard since its soo! Loud!  it's a good laugh once it put-puts by slowly :) not sure if I would put it in, maybe for training or very first car to afford.

It wasn't so slow in fact. Won the Sweden rally regularly in the 60s and 70s, and a few times in Finland and Great Britain. In the Sweden Rally 1975, Blomqvist would have beaten Waldegaard in the Stratos, if not for some electrical problems.
I guess I didn't know that.  Maybe for the time it was fast or the one here in the US is slow.  Maybe after watching all the others it's seems slow.  I'm sure it's fun to drive in RL

Competition wise it wasn't slow, but the sound do promise more than it delivers ;)

It has a lot of common with politicians then xD

I am willing to make a video with the last two songs. The video itself seemed a bit to be unsynced with the songs as it dates back to 2006 regardless of the image quality and the editor's skills. It really pesters me that the Impreza S10 hadn't made any important wins. Quite disappointing because it was a very great car. I liked the video better from 4:30.

Cassie R, or Castrol R 2-stroke oil, it has a somewhat unique smell and for some reason, there are some of us who have a strange addiction to it...
When my brother was but a wee lad he would go out in the garage with a comforter and drape it over his head and a bucket of gasoline. That's petrol for all you non Americans. Now every time he does something stupid he blames it on that.

Aha, yeah, that's exactly what I talk about. Castor oil is often used in 2-stroke oils. The Saab, as you are probably aware boasts a two stroke V4 and therefore it sounds and smells amazing. And looks good to. :) 

I googled Cassie R and got strange blogs and such, not one of them smelling of two stroke engines.

Far as I know the 96 was offered in the 2-stroke for the first year or two of production (1967-68?), then in either the 2-stroke or with the Taunus 4-stroke V4, from about 1968 to 1982.  I might be off a bit.  My Saab was the 1969 V4 4-stroke, bought as a dealer demo with a couple hundred miles on it in the winter of 1970.  Great car.  No castor oil.  The original clutch didn't make it past 30,000 miles; the second one wore much better.

P.S.  The price new in 1970 was about $1,500.

So a little DiRTY gossip glitch I just realized I've been dealing with for months, since the RX update.  I'm sure that some of you may have seen me posting about glowing rotors at all times, but even after game integrity checks through Steam it remained.  I just updated my Fanatec drivers tonight and it's gone.  There must have been some conflict, even though I had 5% deadzone  and in game and my Fanatec software didn't show any dragging brakes at rest.  I'VE BEEN DRIVING WITH DRAGGING BRAKES FOR MONTHS.

A whole league season, and wondering why I can't beat the AI sometimes.  Damn..

Oh man, that reminds me of the time I was trying to get into rFactor and was getting destroyed in the straights. After many hours I accidentally discovered my pedal was goofing up and I was only hitting 92% throttle max.

Merry New Year! May the gossip flow freely in the year to come :smiley: 
@urgaffel   So your saying there is stuff to gossip about?  Any hints?  Could you point us in the right direction to gossip?  :wink: 
Oh yeah, there are always things to gossip about. I'll leave the hints to other people though, I don't want to say too much and give away things that aren't mine to give away ;)

So, a video on the OutsideXbox youtube channel (formerly inside xbox when it used to be on the old xbox 360 dashboard) showed Dirt as one of the 7 games that xbox will finally get in 2016. For some reason they suggested that it could be re-branded as dirt 4 for the consoles? I have no idea where they would have got that from, and it seams highly unlikely, especially as dirt rally already has official xbox one box art.
