    Without trying to sound like a sore loser it felt like I picked the wrong car. No matter how good the driving felt I lost at least a couple of seconds every sector. Of course I could be driving faster but it felt very consistent. I did a few big mistakes, rolling down a hill a couple of times, which did not help though :)

    The scenarios in the Mcrae expansion sounds interesting! I have no idea how scotland is as a location but if it's anything like wales I'm sure it'll be fun!

    15 seconds behind on the 1st stage and was doing rather well on the 2nd until a right over narrow bridge caught me out. Didn't make the turn and down I want... Dnf :(

    Terminal crashed on the second course. Going to stick to the Fiesta for the next one.

    Really? I've been removed from the rally group? Just because I won an argument in the Brexit thread against stupid EG royalty?

    Sorry but I had to set things straight. No one disses Opel, I won't have any of that.

    Ha! I have to go back to blame myself and my mistakes now... :)

    I had a quick go on the championship since it's on dlc that I have. Pathetic! I'm guessing the only reason I'm not last on stage two is because somebody wrapped their car round a tree.

    Congrats to Salrip on the Championship win, I couldn't get anywhere near his time in Greece, despite putting in what I though was a good run.

    New Championship is up!

    I have started playing this.

    thought that I would start out with the underpowered mini, because the engine would not get me into trouble.

    Actually finding it a very hard car to master. Massive understeer in the wet and crap brakes are making it really hard to put in a decent time.

    Plus once you bleed off the speed the indadequate engine makes it really hard to get back up again. You lose momentum at a cost.

    Moved onto the Citroen R5 I think and found it a much easier car to post a decent time in.

    @Dirt3 I struggled with the understeer on the mini until I found the car setups on the GTR Technical YouTube channel.

    Someone posted the link earlier in the thread, very helpful! They have setups for most cars on most tracks, they add more weekly.

    Thanks guys.

    it's find of weird that they don't have an underpowered well set up car for beginners. if you are starting out trying to learn then I think most people would agree that jumping straight into a Group b monster is probably not going to be a sensible option, but you would think they would have a clear goto car for this purpose.

    I have enjoyed my time in the mini and got some good times in the end (although not in the wet), but it is nice to know that there are setups that can make it easier.

    Just realised I didn't change the car class to H3 RWD for the final round of the championship oops! Sorry...

    Edit: Fucked up my run with punctures on stages 3&4. Never mind ..

    This game is quite terrifying.

    On DR1 I was playing on a small monitor. Now on a big telly. The sensation of speed is epic. I actually feel frightened to push the accelerator more and more. Such a difference to F1, where you are constantly maxed out on the accelerator trying to gain more speed. The cars twist and turn like a twisty turny thing under braking as well.

    I think this will last me a few months.

    Congrats to DrStrangelove for the win.

    New Championship is up, car class is R4/NR4. I had a terrible time on the first event, should be very easy to beat.

    In other news, I picked up this Stratos on eBay for under a tenner.

    Nice! Thanks for putting up another meisterschaft also, I might be propping up the table but I welcome the challenge.

    Except a 9second penalty for killing spectators and a turn I mistakenly thought was 3 right when it was 3 left I thought I drove quite well with no obvious big mistakes but I just couldn't keep up with TheGreenYamo's times. Almost every sector I lost a second or two. Can't blame the car this time either :)

    9 seconds for killing spectators seems harsh. I think a 1 second penalty per person to a max limit of 5 seconds would be fairer.

    @Dirt3 It might have been more than one but yes, I agree - especially when they are standing on the outside of a fast corner. Some spectator placement in this game drives me mad although that might be because I come from the land of Volvo where safety comes first :)
