I enjoyed these ones, especially the Trailblazer.
I was trying to perfect it though, that is when rage ensued and I decided to stop haha!

After each session of dirt my wrists are begging for mercy, not sure if anyone with wheel has the same problem(?) :D



My rig is quite a beast to drive. The Fanatec wheel can put out a hell of a lot of force and I have 8 transducer (bass shakers) on my rig running through Simvibe. If you ever watch any of my videos then you will see how much my rig moves when I corner etc. The whole thing is mounted of rubber vibration isolators so you get a hell of a lot of movement. My GS-4 seat has finally arrived in the country so I will hopefully get that tomorrow.

If you haven't seen what the GS-4 seat is, it is a motion seat that simulates G-force while cornering, accelerating and braking etc http://simxperience.com/en-us/products/motionsimulatorkits/simxperiencegs-4g-seat.aspx

Also check out Simvibe. Even with 1 transducer it is awesome. It uses the telemetry from the game to reproduce the vibrations you would feel in a real car, I have 8 of them so say if I run over a ripple strip if my front left wheel then I will feel it from the front left of my rig. I have 4 transducers where the wheels would be, one on the pedals, a bigger one under the seat and one under each shifter. http://simxperience.com/Products/SimVibe/SimVibeSoftware.aspx

So yeah, it can be quite a workout and you do feel pretty knackered after a long race.

Had heaps of fun on this stage. Brought back heaps of memories of Carlos Sainz racing the Celica back in the day. I used to go to the Rally of New Zealand with my dad and I remember watching Carlos win the Rally NZ three times in a row in the earlier Celicas. I really liked the model before the one in Dirt 3, I used to have an old 1991 Celica Z-R. I used the hoon along some of the same roads they used in the Rally NZ, it was heaps of fun even though it was a FWD Auto.

@Avenga, You have really cool simrig, pleasure to watch your replays when looking how you are having fun with it ;) @Dave, Good job mate, no worries, next rounds I will slow down drastically, can't afford spending 4h per stage no more ;)

Thanks. I'm not the quickest racer but I do have a hell of a lot of fun racing on my rig. I was the same when I used to rally in the real world. I was happy with middle of the field as long as I was having fun. As Jeremy Clarkson once said 'he who shall be last shall be sideways and smiling.'

I couldn't do 4h per stage. I would totally melt, I use really big studio lights for my videos, combined with the heat from the 4 amps running my transducers. It gets pretty hot in my room so I can only do about 30mins at a time. Luckily it is winter here so I don't need a heater :)

I usually do a bit of practice on Saturday then record on Sunday. It then takes be quite a while to edit all the multiple camera's together and sync up all the microphones. Good fun though.

Yeah, honestly it's not that fun to try going the quickest way and nonoversterry and nonundersteery at the same time. I mean, it's quite satisfying seeing time being reduced and getting closer to the top but if only I wasn't fighting for podium I would go sideways as well :p I guess Monte Carlo, the bonus stage, I will drifft all way long. Ok, I'm not doing Off topic anymore :D
