    Sounds good. I managed to time a 'terminal damage' right when co driver says '... Well done.' on one of my last runs. I'll take full damage as a challenge rather than parameter setting..

    Start, 6 left, into 3 right, tightens. Is that a puncture on the front?

    I guaran-fucking-tee it.

    @Mr_Sleep thanks for the tip, will take a look at my settings.

    hmm full damage - two spare tires it is!

    Edit: godammit, I have 92 gb free on my ps4 but I still need to delete a further 40gb to be able to download the 10gb update. absurd...

    Anyone know if you get a penalty for hitting he marshall at the end?

    @mudskipp No there isn't. I always plough into him at full speed.

    Had some new pedals today, Thrustmaster T-LCM ones so set this up to try them out, I am normally in vr on a pad when we run the championships so the full damage ones I set up are me on the wheel in triple screen, maybe to slow the fast guys down a little also but that has seemed to have failed.

    Also the marshal getting mowed in vr isn't something I like to think about after the many times I have done so without a penalty.

    I still managed to pick up a hefty pen from driving on the grass too much, which annoyed me only until the next stage where I did some fantastic rolling down a hill and across the road only to flip back onto it once gradients changed. Not even a single puncture too!

    The Marshall expects to get mowed down now guys, itís totally acceptable.

    @mudskipp I did crash into a tree on the last stage, thankfully the car was OK. That's usually game over on hardcore damage.

    If nothing is happening I'll set another full damage one up, just a short 48hr again. Hopefully a proper chahmpionship will happen soon and I'm just doing this because I miss the other group we had and I fancy driving Finland right now in something fwd.

    Yea sounds good! Ive never actually smashed into that house on the side of the mega jump, perhaps fwd will facilitate.

    Generally I'm quite happy whoever is setting up the EG races, for
    whatever reason I don't find myself as interested in the multistage public online events

    Another short one is up, I've not messed with assists this time, sorry about that but I am now tempted to do a no assists and cockpit only some day.

    Do you guys use any assists normally? I think mine are all set to off but I am probably the target audience for them. Anything that stops rwd spinning so severely once you lose that first bit of control would be welcome.

    @mudskipp Rwd I used to put traction control on, always tempted to go faster but just being careful and using maybe 20% throttle at times instead of 100% helps, easier said than done as I'm often off the track with damage or roll and while amazed I lost next to no time I crash immediately after.

    Who won the last one by the way?

    Assissts-wise, I turn them all off as in the long run it makes the car more controllable. Regarding RWD spinning, try to always have the accelerator engaged but at different levels of throttle, try doing the whole course at a maximum of 80% throttle as I find that helps to get a feel for RWD.

    Saying all that, I am still rubbish at RWD.

    It's been going really well and I have also had a bit of luck lately, some very close calls!

    Starting to warm to FWD now. They can be quite fun actually, takes some time getting used to them and not drive them as an AWD/RWD car though. I use the handbrake extensively normally but that's a big no-no with those cars.

    I wonder how many spectators and marshalls that I have killed in this game. Must be in the hundreds.

    Haha I thought I'd try to increase top speed of the golf during tuning and shakedowns using gear differential.. Obviously I've just hit terminal damage at 104mph during a shakedown..

    E: oh its let me repair and attempt first two stages regardless. Think my drivers face is gonna get cooked with all this radiator steam..

    I set up a championship for our usual settings, 4 events/4 stages, 2days per event and options set to normal, starts from midday Friday.

    Cheers for setting that up. That mitsubshi is one of my favourite cars in the game, had a nice leisurely drive round nz!

    Hah yes. I lost my lights on the last segment so finished it looking like a doom level with the gamma maxed. Cyberdaemonscotsmen hiding behind every precarious stack of logs.

    Are the qualifiers not available in the gamepass version of this? I have no World Champ tab showing.
