More boxes needed. Dunno why I didn't think of posting it the first time.

That's just a Group N blobeye. It's like a diet rally car. I want a full fat WRCar.

I wouldn't mind some of those Kit Car/S1600 cars in the game. The sound was epic and some of them looked really cool and could have some lovely liveries created by us modders.

If I remember correctly did that game have the Toyota Celica ST185 in Castrol colours and the escort cosworth in the Michelin pilot colours??

Where've you been? Have you been trying to source us one of the above? 😄

I could easily source one of each Impreza WRC.

Also the audio used for the S14 appears to be from the 98/99 car that was recorded. Just sounds wrong.

The engine note sounds OK to me, it's the turbo noise that is all wrong: there shouldn't be any.

Yes the turbo whistle is definitely off of the 98/99 car

Hey don't start destroying weeks of gossip. Let that 22b come in silently.

The early newage Impreza WRCars all did it (compressor surge) @tonzboher, it was the S10 (2004) onwards when the cars ran a different type of ALS that the turbo noise stopped.

EDIT: Post tweaked for clarity following correction!

I would also like a few 1600 cars and very much like the MG

 

The game also had some cars that I have never seen before in a rally game

All Cars from Colin Mcrae Rally 2005

Incidentally, the engine sound is not out of the game

Yes apologies your are correct, the s11 onwards was a lot milder sounding with the turbo sound, love the sound off the earlier versions though

I’d say it stopped from the S10 😉

Yep, you're dead right: I just checked and Prodrive started fitting the "Rocket" from the S10 onwards. Good spot!

I think one of the main reasons this was probably included is that remember, this was the last WRC car Subaru built and raced. That in itself makes it special.

Sure I love the saloon WRXs more than the hatch. But as a WRC car, I love the look of the hatch and so far I’m absolutely loving driving it in DR 2.0!

The BGMSPORT Facebook post from 2nd May stated they recorded "last week". Did they actually manage to process that recording and add it to the Impreza release? Doesn't add up if the new cars were added already in the Sweden patch?

There is no way the sound is from that car, not in that time frame. 

I think it's the S14 engine note with incorrect turbo sound.

Let’s hope it’s that then, would be gutted if that proved the 22b gossip to be wrong 😢

 

and to add insult to injury it would mean they went to the effort of getting a new recording for the s14 and used the wrong car  noise?! 😂

Pretty sure they have already officially confirmed that they recorded an actual S14 WRC to get the audio. 

The timeframe between recording a car and having the sound prepared for inclusion in the game has been discussed before, it's definitely more than a week or two!

Ah okay that’s good then. After posting i also realised that some players were able to access the game files for the s14 and have already been playing with it since before the recording was gained on the 2nd May. 

 

Although it begs the questions, how could the sound the s14 be off if they got the recording of the actual car? Some ppl are saying it has the wrong turbo noise

The compressor surge (turbo noise) seems to occur every time you come off the throttle. That would be correct for the early Impreza WRCars (like the bugeye S7 WRC that was in DR1 and DiRT 4), but not for the S14.

Turn that turbo noise off and I think that will fix the S14 sound.
