    I would say up to 2000s, but they're DLC only, aren't they? I'm happy with R5s.

    They are but so are 3 of the courses that are going to be in there. And you can pick up one of the cars for a quid or something if you haven't got the season pass. It's probably my favourite all round car class so we'll definitely be driving them at some point.

    Have you already set it up? I'd vote for 3x3 events because Wales is coming in 10 days

    Ok next one is ready to go. Wouldn't let me start it until 2115 tomorrow night though. Same setup as the last one, R5 cars.

    Yeah I thought that, but it took them weeks to update the website to allow Germany and Sweden. Plus the PR guy on the forum is saying most of the web developers are working on F1 now so who knows when it will be updated.

    Wales will be ideal for the Group B survival event at the end of the championship.

    Annoyingly I could not call it Exploding Geckos 2.0 due to their name restrictions, which are stupid.
    Just applied to join as Iím still not used to the quick cars yet, this is my level.

    Shoot, I really need to get a new pad soon. Not only doesn't R2 work properly anymore (could somehow fix that by raising sensitivity), L2 is collapsing too, not fully releasing anymore. A few days ago I had to set L2 deadzone to 50, today I had to set it to 80.

    They'll all be great to be honest, if Wales is ready to go though it'll be that.

    Poland would be fucking terrifying. Everytime I was really opening the car up I started panicking.

    Anyone got any ideas how the Championship Standings table works? The overall one that is. I canít make out whatís going on with how the points have been allocated at all, or what order people are supposed to be in.

    Iím thinking itís bugged.

    I've applied for the sunday drivers rally club, looking forward to admiring the scenery at a more sedate pace.

    You say that about the scenic drive but I still managed to get terminal damage. Hah.

    Just shows that it doesnít matter what car you drive, thereís still plenty of chances to explode :D

    Just done Germany, so donít the rest of you Sunday drivers forget to go too. Flat caps and driving gloves are optional.

    Germany done, complete nightmare on wet tyres. A spin and a front clang into a stone!

    Needed a new radiator and clawed back some time but not enough. Very close.

    @SteveBUK Yeah I reckon less than a second counts as very close!

    I had a look at your times part way through and I thought you were going catch me. Itís a tight one so far.

    Yeah that oneís a right bugger. I slowed into third this time which was totally overdoing it but at least I didnít crash there for once.

    I'm still trying to pick what car I want. The sound of the 208 engine is just shading it.

    I did some comparative testing some time ago, I think this is a very balanced class. The only exception I found was the Citroen which goes a little wide in comparison and isn't quite up there with the others in my opinion. Personally I'd recommend any of the others, they all behave a little differently but I found them pretty even in terms of performance.

    I made some notes back then, and a ranking from most agile to most stable, at least how I experienced them:

    1. 208
    2. Space Star
    3. Fiesta
    4. C3
    5. Polo
    6. Fabia

    Apart from a couple of minor mishaps, I'm pretty pleased with my overall time. Also, I forgot to fiddle with my gear ratios, so the car maxed out at 125 mph on that long straight with the jump. Pretty sure you can get these cars up to 140 along there.
    Still, I think I could only manage to go about 3 seconds faster overall.

    Yeah some fast times on there.

    Also the tuning is fucked on clubs apparently, it reverts to the standard setup after the first stage.

    @Decks Ah, it wouldn't have made a difference then.

    There's less than a second between the top 2 times, great stuff fellas!
