The Dirt Daily Thread

Recommended Posts

So I think it's time to revive this old gem of a thread!

This is where you post your daily experiences and frustrations when you try to bring your dented car to the top times of the leaderboard.

 

Go on.

Here's my run from Saturday's Daily, really liked throwing that Escort around New Zealand :classic_happy:

 

There's an Achievement for finishing Top Tier in a Quattro Daily. I wonder if that's a special Daily using only the Audi Quattro or if it can be done in the Group B Dailies. :classic_ninja:

So lets give this tread a go as well:

Yesterday was nice, I could win my first DR2 daily with the lancia fluvia in spain. It was all about maintaining speed going up the hill - felt like a snail though with that car.

Today was awful: lost 20sec in the last sector with the ford escort mk2 in poland, having 7 pretty decent sectors prior to that incident. Furthermore, I crashed in both spain dailies. With the slowest car class, unbelievable 😃

How did you guys do?

Yeah the MK2 Escort is pretty hairy on the Polish roads. It's just too fast for me to be honest and I had a good few resets.

 

Also did the Spain one in the DS21, which probably wasnt the fastest choice but oh my that car feels like a boat(in a good way!). It was actually really fun sailing through the stage. Def not fast though.

Very brave to pick that cruise ship for Spain ^^ It's ok for Poland stages though. Setting steering saturation to 60, as someone recommended in the gossip thread, helped a lot to get it turning better. Also, stiffening ARBs a tiny bit helpes making it more reactive, and some front toe out for slow corners.

Could win the Poland daily with the Mk2. Joona on P4 must have had a crash or breakfast since I usually cannot hold his pace by quite a margin.

Third place with the Peugeot in USA added to a nice daily day - wrecked the Stratas in Austraila though.

Can I just express my love for the Crosscart Xtreme in this game? It was unplayable in D4 but OH MY GOD it is such an awesome car to drive in DR2! It's twitchy but you can get some fantastic powerslides while listening to that glorious engine!

I was heading for a good time in todays daily but I spun and lost 10 seconds in the last lap.

Going back to that Silverstone RX with the Speed art Xtreme. Damn wish I would have seen Joona's run. He won that daily with 10 seconds faster than P2. That's some crazy ****.

For today’s AI Daily be very careful on the brakes. Brake early and not too hard as it’s easy to lock up on the wet surface. Small steering movements to get the car through the turns.

If you keep it clean you’ll easily beat the AI, their fastest time is about a minute slower than World Record.

Hey people, decided to upload two daily event wins. Please have a look, I may add more content.

 

FWD H2 Golf in Poland:

Pretty clean run.

 

2000s Citroen C4 Poland:

Quite a mess in the second half. Especially crashed the last corner and crashed over the finish line. Not very nice 😃

Anyone else think Historic 1 class is being over used in daily’s weekly’s and monthly’s, more diversity needed

Nicely done, I hold a world record on PS4 Pro in those same conditions, S1, Spain, wet, here’s the link 🙂

Figured I should throw my clip from today up here. Group B Daily win with a T1 Engine Tune and stock setup. Was pretty sketchy a few times throughout, and that one hay bale actually saved me :classic_laugh:

Lost connection with Racenet during this and got a DNF as a result 😂  Codeys need to address so many issues 😪

As I'm new to dailies I'm really starting from scratch. So, it seems I need to unlock the engine mapping by completing dailies. One thing I noticed when looking at the leaderboards is that I can't see the top of LB. I press 'go to top' but it doesn't, both multiplatform and Xbox only. Not sure if I'm missing something.

pretty sure this is a bug. you can only see the whole leaderboard back in the game menu.
