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

You do now 😉

So then, Zero cars. 
Basically, new DiRT Rally themed skins, numbered 00, for the Ford Escort Mk 2, Peugeot 405 T16 Pikes Peak and the VW Polo Rally Cross.


But why......?
Told you ages ago not to get your hopes about about mega new cars or entirely new game modes. =p
Personally, I think it's a huge anti-climax for all the teasing Lee did. Could say it was a big old farewell troll.

Of course, could also just think of the 2000 class cars as Zero Cars as well. Double meaning and all that.

This looks so good. Love that SWRT livery!

My only gripe (and I feel like a bit of a dick posting critique on new content) is the engine sound: doesn't sound like an Impreza WRC?

The car even looks like it handles better now.  There was virtually no way before that you could have carried as much speed and 4 wheel slide through a corner.  This will be a re-learning curve for sure!
When I carried a lot of speed into a corner, the car went up on two wheels... this made me not trust it.
Can that be possible (on gravel)? Physics issue?
Sure it's possible. Rally cars are more susceptible than most racing cars as well between a higher CoG, softer suspension and less downforce.
Compared to a circuit racer, a rally car is like a Land Rover.
That's the fine line between driving to the limits and exceeding them.
I can clearly see what you mean on tarmac... but its not so clear when we´re talking about gravel/mud. Reaching such level of grip on gravel I think its impossible... even in turns with bad camber.

Dont know... I´m not an expert and never driven a rally car.
It's not just about grip. In fact, lack of grip can potentially make it worse as it allows you to get more sideways with more speed. 
Suspension on one side fully compressed, and fully uncompressed on the other side.
Throw in a higher CoG and you have all the components of a roll. If you're going fast enough, it's not going to take too much in the way of a bump or undulation to push it over the edge.

They don't have the S7 sound yet, hopefully one has been located for source.

Modern masters will bring a whole new class. What do we think it is? As it's stated it will be "fan favourites" I guess the newer R classes are ruled out.

I still would give my right kidney to have an Impreza S5, but I don't think it will be a 97-99 class.

Oh you'd be surprised!

The S12b is the best sounding WRC imo

I struggle to decide on the best sounding Impreza WRC! The S12b sounds sublime on full chat, but the S7 - S11 all made loads of turbo noise and had very aggressive sounding anti-lag...

...(still jealous that you got to spend a day watching someone play with an Impreza WRC @Rallycameraman )

Ah, that explains why it's the sound of an Impreza with unequal length headers then. Another Impreza for you to master the audio for @soundfx !
