    3rd stage with rain was first time I remember hearing a 1 left deceptive type call, that was a fun few stages and hard as nails.

    Had a few mistakes and only a single 8 sec penalty but still 16secs off salrip.

    I was... less careful than Salrip. I did a lot of crash testing of the Legacy. I'm pleased to say, it's very safe.

    Just had a go of the championship after not playing this for ages. Quite pleased with 3rd (atm) considering. I didnít realise I was supposed to be using the legacy though!

    While playing the game yesterday, I was thinking along the lines of "how the fuck can anybody do this in real life", and seeing DrStrangeloves speed of impact I was reminded of the story of a jet lagged Stig Blomqvist coming to rally Argentina and doing the first stage with an avarage speed of 190km/h. Absolutely insane.

    I see that WRC 8 is only £13.50 on PSN (ends today). Anyone else got it? Worth owning both it and Dirt Rally 2.0?

    Supposed to be pretty good and the career is supposed to be a lot better than Dirts. The 30fps and awful sound put me off buying it though.

    I bought it a while ago for twice that price, but I'm a sucker for an official WRC game. It's pretty good. Not sure where the awful sound thing comes from; I can't remember a rally game I've played in the past 20 years which actually got that part right (not played dirt rally 2 yet, though). Also, it feels better than 30fps. Not sure why, it just did to me.

    I bought wrc 8 a few days ago. I really like it. Have the odd frame drops here and there and performance wise DR2 plays better but the career is quite well done.

    As I say, not tried it yet!

    Also, I went on last night to download it... I'm out by a week FFS. WFH really fucking with my time awareness already...

    Had a 8sec penalty on 3 of the 4 stages, last few corners as well each time, the other stage I fell down a slope but saved it without reseting the car.

    You'd swear there was something happening in the world to worry about and breaking my concentration.

    How is this with a pad, or do I need to break the wheel out?

    I can only play it with a pad, a wheel on 900 setting seems impossible to me.

    Can't you change the wheel? On mine there are shortcut key combos to force different locks. I never play on 900 for the same reasons.

    I could but I tend to do worse in iracing afterwards, rally drivers are exceptional beasts.

    Cool, cheers.
    Dunno if it's just me but rally games often feel wrong with a wheel anyway.

    Got wrc8 in the sale, and been playing that lately. Took a bit of adjusting when doing the current championship, but I must say I did quite well (again!). One reset and a number of excursions outside the road but nothing major.
