2001 Focus and Subaru

Recommended Posts

I used to watch Burns and Solberg in the flesh every year (lived right by one of the stages in Wales) and used to go to the services every year, and their specific cars they used in those years around 2001 sounded nothing like any other impreza rally car or road car I'd heard before. DR2 is very close to the real sound of their cars.

Just to back up what I said ealier, watch this. Skip forward a little to the '01 footage, you can clearly hear the higher note of the 2001 (ish) cars, DR2.0 sounds very close

@PJTierney they're not showing up in online (for people who haven't bought them). is that by design?

hmmm I'm curious about this because the last few nights I hosted MP lobbies specifically with the 2000cc and I was always the only one in the 01 Focus. Everyone else was in the C4, Fabia, or newer Subi. No 01's aside from me, but these were also randoms so I don't know if they actually looked for the new 01's...

oh right, didn't check that. I'll guess not.

however, I also played MP on Tuesday and the host did have season 3, and I was able to use the 01 Focus but not the Impreza. I didn't have time to take a screenshot so I'd forgotten about this. thanks for reminding me.

That isnt a catalytic converter, and my X version of dr2 does it. Off the top of my head the R5 fiesta does it under lower light conditions

Catalytic converters always presents and glows all the times, don't think that's the same which visual flame effects you can see in any Dirt games 🙂
here you can check at night with different WR cars

Good to see you back after quite a long time. I wish i could even stand before any of those cars. So far i've only standed before an Evo 6 with Marlboro livery, which is probably my favourite car so I cant complain.

2001 Impreza WRC? You have driven an S7 then? Have you got any pictures of it? More rally car pictures are always needed on the forum!

Of course I know what they are, I just never knew the early 2000 scoobies also had them at the end of the exhaust. They're simply there to meet road regs, although I doubt they're effective right at the back, who knows lol

The reason of the cat was put at the back is that the heat can go out quiet quick without travelling in a long tube.
