You do now 😉

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.

Do you find this plausible? at the top of that litle crest? Its hard to believe it can happen that way.

@OzoreXS Pretty sure that they're working on this as I have pointed it out before.
It doesn't look like something that couldn't happen though.  
Yea and you gotta keep in mind, we're probably doing crazier stuff with those cars than those rally drivers would do in real life. Because we've got a restart button anyways, and it's not like we'll die if we crash into a tree as fast as we can.

Hey , for everybody still at work, I'll leave this here too:

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? 
How many different sounds do these scooby's make!? ;)
Oh you'd be surprised!

The S12b is the best sounding WRC imo

https://youtu.be/s0Ehhu5NzD8
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 )
The Group A car but it's been tweaked a little. 
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 !

I guess you missed this video where I spent the day with an S11 and S12b

You got to spend a day with my two fave generations of Impreza WRC and I wasn't invited...

Are there any infos or hint's what the Modern Masters Pack will contain?
What are your thoughts?  :)
I need to watch that section of the stream back again, but I seem to remember a couple of very vague clues. Personally, I'm hoping we don't have too many new classes added and current ones are padded out a little. Group A, 2000s and 2010s are all 'modern' classes that could do with an extra car or two.

Sent thoughts of mine:
- We were told 'over 15' cars were in production and 8 have been released since. Assuming all have licensing approval, that means there are potentially 8 or so still in planning. I'd guess that means 5 or so are likely to be in this pack.

- The latest two cars being "2000s" and not "2001" would suggest there won't also be a late 2000s group for the other Focus and C4 (and if no C4 will there be any rallying Citroens at all?).

- We know there'll be a new class though, so what could this be? According to the stream they won't be the most iconic, but 'fan favourites'. S


S2000 stands out for me; the cars were superb leaders of the IRC days, they have sound recordings for 2 already, they have several Peugeots and Fiats already as well as the two models. Add a Skoda or Fiesta there and you've got a great class with modern cars with a little less power than the WRC cars. I'm sure we'll get a few more clues, so that guess will most likely evolve over the month. Hope there is a new 2000 or 2010 car in there somewhere too.
