    @andytheadequate ah great, good job I decided to post my wheel settings a few pages back as the last update back in Feb reset everything so it's probably going to happen again unfortunately.

    Oh yea don't get me wrong, the track variation (bumps, borders, variable width, full on bits of road missing) is amazing. I just can't believe people can rally around it in real life!

    These days I think New England is the only one I don't like but that's because my TV settings don't seem to handle the light and shade in the trees properly. Might need to switch to first person for it to see corners better

    I think Greece is one of my, if not my favourite location. Relentless, dangerous, never a moment where you can relax.

    Did a pretty sweet 360 in one of the early stages.

    The group A lancia is really powerful! It's one of the cars you can drive right back up any embankment. Which is a criteria I often appreciate

    H1 FWD in Scotland, but with full damage for next week. I fancied a Mini.

    It's full damage and has 9 stages, 2 short then a medium repair before a long stage.

    Finally had stock show up for a seat for my rig, been waiting for the stock alert since last summer, just got to build up the base for it and find a way to clip the whole thing to my steering wheel stand.

    Long time since I drove a rally with full damage. Looking forward to it! H1 car choice is hard - the DS is probably my favourite car of all time, for all kind of reasons. It is absolutely gorgeous in the game but it is also the slowest by quite a margin so there's a dilemma here - do I choose looks or speed?!

    If it would let me make a single car event I'd happily put the DS as it, I'll give it a run and see how heavy the old thing actually is.

    I vote salrip in DS.

    We could always have an agreement to all pick the DS too.

    One of the few things I think are missing from this game is more custom event options. I'd like to have a series where you could pick any car you want, just to work out the balance between power and propensity for crashing.

    Or if not that, let the game keep track of my best time for each course regardless of car

    This one will be a lot of damage management for me, having a nightmare most the time anyway on this clutch set up and learning the handbrake. I'm going the DS as hopefully it takes more damage but don't think it'll get back up the side of road if I go off.

    Went into the ditch at the first corner. Had a bit of trouble getting up on the road again. Did the same thing at the end of the stage, with a bonus roll to boot. Just getting to the end of the rally might be a challenge.

    @salrip haha I did a shakedown to get the feel for the car/track, was feeling pretty pleased then went and did almost exactly the same thing.

    I've never had a run be so long, lovely habit of killing my radiator at the start of the long stages and no engine by the last few stages.

    Forced retirement a at the tight left just as final stage ends, 10/10.

    Really nice and unexpected with a DS championship! Feels great to be slighty out of control on those high speed sections in scotland but still make it through without damaging the car. Except that first stage I had basically a problem free rally, a few hiccups here and there but nothing major. The DS is such a beautiful car I would feel guilty crashing even a digital one.

    How about a full damage event in some faster cars next time? Maybe even in RWD cars?

    I may pop on the vr and go on a pad for this.

    BMW E30 M3 Evo Rally
    Datsun 240Z
    Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500
    Lancia Stratos
    Opel Ascona 400
    Renault 5 Turbo

    Nice! That's a car class I'm not overly familiar with so it will be fun. The Lancia is fun and fast I think, but also very eager to do a pirouette when you least expect it to. The others I really don't know.

    The Renault 5 seems to want to kill me less than the others.

    @mudskipp I, too, got terminal damage on shakedown :) Could repair the radiator and do stage 1 & 2 reasonably well before fixing the car before S3 though. I chose the BMW without testing the others but it feels ok to drive, more manageable than the Stratos I think. Very easy to lose control after getting airborne!
