hi guys, I came across a strange bug ... I was watching the replay of a run in Germany with the 205 t16 e2, when I realized that the left rear tire is thinner than the right one?!?! and the front left one is thicker instead O.O don't tell me that they swapped the front one with the rear XD someone can confirm as soon as it has time? Thanks :3

Nope,and i’m On time trial...so it’s the base tire model for sure.

also I find another bug lol...when you watch the car from behind the big giant black engine filter behind the driver it’s here,but if you watch it from the front it disappears...

It seems apparent to me that the fans want literally every Subaru from the Legacy onwards that's ever competed in top-level rallying in the game...

Group A - Legacy

Group A - Impreza 95 (already in game)

World Rally Car (2000cc 4WD) - Impreza 97

2000cc 4WD - Impreza 01 (season 3)

2000cc 4WD - Impreza 03

2000cc 4WD - Impreza 06

2000cc 4WD - Impreza 08 (season 1)


Not that I'd mind that happening... 😜

I genuinely can't see the issue in this. That car looks too good not to throw money at her...

That being said, there's one big issue with this one. The car is officially named Subaru Impreza WRC97. They can't use WRC. They could use the Prodrive codename and call it S3. They could call it Impreza WRX'97. OR, they could call it.....(dare I say it).... 22b? 😅

They have used the date for the other two WRCars, so hopefully they will just go with "Subaru Impreza 1997"...

...calling it a 22B is the only way they'll lose my purchase! 😄

Getting the Championship winning '03 car would be seriously cool as well.

ya, but the hawkeye is nicer. that said, having 3-4 imprezas in a class of ~9-11 cars is just ridiculous

That is true, only problem is the ones we currently have are not the most popular 😂😩

 

let’s face it, the 97-2000 and 2003/4/5 versions are probs the most popular, yet we have the 2001 and 2008 lol

 

Obvs the 1995 is pretty iconic too so at least we have that

Can't see the problem myself... 😄

 

...I think if we got to that point they would have to split the group.

Seeing as Codies like to sort out anything post-1990 into their respective regulation groups, if we were to split the 2000cc class I'd say a reasonable point to split it would be pre-2006 (Fabia, Focus '01, Impreza '01, 206) and post-2005 (C4, Focus '07, Impreza '08). This is because the World Rally Car regulations were adjusted from 2006 onwards - front and rear differentials became mechanical, active suspension & water injection were banned and certain parts had to last longer.

On another note, AFAIK only the Xsara (Petter drove one in 2009 - nudge nudge, wink wink!) was homologated to both rule set variants: homologated pre-2006 of course but it was also adjusted to the 2006 ruleset so that Kronos could score points in the proper Manufacturers Championship

That sounds like a pretty good idea tbf

I think, splitting the 2000cc 4WD-class is a very good idea.

But VERY unlikely.

I'm pretty sure, that would cause a lot of work with leaderboards (splitting the times into different leaderboards) and probably AI.

But if I could choose, I would split them like above mentioned: 2005/2006-split. The C4 Rally is just too powerful. Only the Focus RS '07 can hold up with it.

 

Whitelisting cars in clubs would do the same and is probably less work overall.

RE: "Codies sent sound team all the way to USA to record Lancia Delta S4"

 

99% sure its this one.

 

John Campion, is a great guy to talk to. Had a conversation with him a while back, he is just like any of us, loves rally, just so happens to be able to afford these cars.  Hope he recovers fully.

The Fabia in DR2.0 is able to compete with the current line-up of cars in its class. It's even better than the Impreza S14. That is to say I'm able to compete with the Fabia for the top spots in highly competitive clubs and online events. The Focus and C4 depending on the surface is about 2 seconds quicker on long stages. The Impreza unfortunately is at least 1 seconds slower than the Fabia. I doubt that the '01 cars will be able to match the times of the newer cars. So that's where it becomes difficult as putting the Fabia in the same class as the '01 cars would be unfair.

Then again, if the Fabia '05 can compete with the newer '07 / '08 cars, it must have been tweaked just so that the car is at least somewhat competitive in its class. Maybe it'll be the same for the '01 cars.

I will have to disagree with you on this one. I've been using the unlock glitch on the 01 Focus for the last couple weeks now and the car is an absolute monster. I easily pick it before the 07 every single time and the car screams around the stages. I am not an AM/Pro driver or anything but I hold my fair share of WR's and feel confident in saying I could easily pace my 07 WRs with the 01. Now is it faster/quicker? I don't know for sure, honestly I'm too lazy to test it with the tools I have. Maybe the 07 with the right tune is a bit faster, but I don't see the 01 acting like the Subi does in the class - being the outcast that no one likes to drive cuz it is so slow. The 01 is an absolute champ and I will be racing it in the majority of my online events/lobbies.

As I mentioned a further down my post, the '01 cars will most likely be tweaked in order to compete with the '07 cars. In reality however, the '07 cars are quite a lot quicker as you would expect.

Well I hope that doesnt happen, because then the 2001 cars would be losing their main characteristics, which is unrealistic and lame.

If that's to happen, then i'd rather have them create a new class where the cars can stay true to their real form. Noone in here cares if these cars stay in the 2000cc group or in a 2001 named class. As a matter of fact, the majority that have spoken do wish that a new specific class gets created so that these 2001 cars and the Evo VI can be in it.

These cars are simply way too good, too iconic and too historic, to be mutated like this.

My question is: is the natural difference in development over 6 years offset by the banning of active suspension, active front & rear diffs, water injection and the requirement for parts to last longer between changes enforced in 2006 - would the car with less development but looser regs be about the same pace as a more developed car with tighter regs?

All I know is, it didn't take too long for Gr.A cars to beat the stage times the way more loosely regulated Gr.B cars had set three to four years before

Didn't you know up front Deluxe edition included Season 1 & 2 and not any after? It's said it on the store page since the beginning, season 3 & 4 weren't even announced yet until a month ago.

No, I didn't imagine it. it's a shame to pay over 100 euros to get 70% content all recycled. very bad politics codemasters respect much more famous games that with 90 euros deluxe you have additional contents for 2 years to follow.luckily there is RBR, for fun without pretensions I prefer to spend on WRC8, but I don't pay for recycled stuff (a lot from Dirt Rally 1) .. better to uninstall.the reality is only one: this simcade is not worth all this money, due to recycled material. it's a sacrosanct criticism, I'm sorry.

BTW: John Campion has his own youtube channel if anyone wants to see more of his rally stuff.  The man is really embedded himself in rally.  

 

 

@F2CMaDMaXX I believe he has had it for a little over a year now, if that gives you any kind of a clue.  If you want to know more, I would contact him on twitter.  He is quite active on there, and very responsive.

Lol, I paid I think 65 euro for my PS4 Deluxe Version as a pre-order. 😂

Ok guys...seriously...the Impreza wrc 2008 need a buff....6/+seconds slower compared to the c4 it’s a bit too much...anyone agree?

It wasnt really competitive with the C4/Ford during it's WRC campaign either though.

It's sad as the top daily challenges will always be filled with the fastest cars. I wish we could have some car specific dailies as we had in DR1. This would force people to drive cars they never normally touch.

Ok it wasn’t very competitive,but in a 6/- min stage it’s not very realistic lost 6/8 sec compared to a same spec car,even the op c4. And i have compared the cars in Oberstein,a tarmac stage...Anyway Atkinson sometimes did really good top 5 spot with it...(I know my English it’s very bad...i’m Sorry)

I'd also enjoy dailies that you don't need to own the car in My Team for - like the dailies in DR1 - and where everyone has maximum upgrades and a fixed setup to level the playing field further.
