Rwd more prone to rear breakaway

Recommended Posts

I know it sounds obvious but the RWD cars are more prone to spinning at speed than 4WD or FWD especially on tarmac. Less so than DR1 but its there. Is it me or the game? No problem with the other drive types.

It's probably you. Throttle control matters A LOT more in 2.0 than it ever did in DR1. In the first, you could just throttle stomp your way out of any corner and keep it planted until the next corner - that is not the case anymore in 2.0. You need to be constantly playing with the throttle, even when in 6th gear trying to go flatout. Keep blipping/massaging it, especially over bumps & jumps because it will want to break loose fast if you don't land perfectly.

Yeah, guess I need to practice more with them instead of using 4wd to save the day.

personally i find this handling way more intuitive and true

@cafe5150 I think the handling is excellent personally. Suggestion (because it's how I learned in DR1) - try upping the traction control settings a few clicks, give that a go and gradually ease the number down - it really helped me get to grips with the Fiat 131 in DR1.

The Fiat is one of the easier RWD's so that's a good starter car.

I agree that the RWDs are more tricky with this game. Some of my old favourites from DR1, the Opels especially, I’ve struggled with. But, the Datsun 240Z is a real hoot to get sliding around. Especially in NZ, you can get that thing snaking through there and it’s a blast. It takes some throttle finesse, especially on a controller, but it’s really rewarding when you get it right. Keep playing with it, play with the toe and camber settings, and you’ll really start to enjoy them more.

I know what you mean, the 131 is easier than the Escort. The Ascona is too. The Stratos is twitchy but is a shorter wheelbase. Overall a great game even with the bugs.

I think RWD is definitely more tricky in DR2.0; as said above you need to be SO much more delicate with the throttle. That said, I can pull off much better slides in DR2.0 than I could in either DR1 or DiRT 4...

...if the 037 comes, it is surely going to be an even bigger handful than before!
