My first leg was really bad. Made some time back on the second leg though.

Just finished the stages, too. 2nd stage I was only 3 seconds faster than Dodge. Had 1 bad crash on stage 1, other than that, pretty smoothly.

At one point on stage 2 I ran into something that stopped me. Just as I was backing up the game reset me and gave me a 15 sec penalty. If it just let me get going again I would not have lost as much time. :( Still had fun though. Then I did Finland in my Fiat Abarth and got 2nd in Career mode.

Yeah, the time penalties are brutal and sometimes make no sense in the first place. But the cleaner you get with your rallying, the less you'll have to deal with those eventually.

Hello hello fellow rally fans can anyone send me a link so I can join the domestic battery League?

Haven't got dirt 4 yet but by the sounds of it it's not really that good but I hear it is a control on a controller how many you guys use a controller as well is there anyone who uses steering wheel?

We'd love you to join us. I will run this event with a controller but I have a wheel. I don't know if it will work on PS4 though.

Make sure you're signed in and have your platform set to PS4 as well. Once you're signed in, go to that link and search for "XDBX Casual" and join. :)

I'm using a controller for everything right now. No extra cash for a proper wheel set yet and I don't see much point in buying the cheapest ones either.

T150 isn't bad for racing on a budget. I have one as I've had my T300 replaced a couple of times and didn't wanna be without in the meantime. Probably 120 pounds. Was quite decent on DiRT Rally.

Some guys use the T80 as it has no distracting forces, just a basic bungee cord. Probably 50 pounds.

It doesn't need to cost a months rent ;)

Post some videos!

The prices are almost double around here. If I can find something online that'll cost me less than local, I'll probably get a T150. Not sure about the T80...

 

There's a handful of rally videos on my YT channel, but I'll try and get more uploaded soon.

Not to worry, the first season is more of a test run anyway. Plenty of things learned already about setting one up properly. Next season will be smoother in terms of how it's run.

Just finished playing dirt rally trying to upgrade some of my cars did the last event. in Wales I was going alright but I know that stage which is the first one there's a square right on the last sector (same corner that @Dodge)  think and I lost about 10 seconds there silly mistake of breaking too late good fun but slamming on handbrake hoping to make the corner

We are. I had to buy the Mini to start the event but since it's brand new to me it doesn't have enough miles for upgrades so its stock anyway.

Well that's career mode cars on, you should be able to pick whatever from the class, provided it's off.

Cars that aren't stock have a massive advantage.

I thought I had the mini at first, but had to buy it too in the end for this. I'll leave personal cars off in the future, but buying the Mini wasn't that bad. After all, it's cheap and can be quite fun to drive.

@Beez@Dodge@Road2fury@LimeGreenLegend@skip_rat

Test season/season 1 has ended now and the final leaderboard looks like this:

  1. Proto - 58 Pts
  2. Fury - 50 Pts
  3. Dodge - 42 Pts
  4. Beez - 36 Pts

 

I'll set up the next season tomorrow and it will have stock car(s), it'll be longer with more stages per event and there will be more time to finish each event. More details on that once I've set the season up.

 

My last event of the test season went down the drain and here's the footage of that and a bit more from our first season:

Event 2, Greece, Stage 2: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/205326781

Event 3, Wales, Stage 1 & 2: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/205327780

 

Can't wait to start our 1st proper season! :)

The new season has been set up now.

This one consists of 4 events: Germany (3 stages), Wales (5 stages), Finland (6 stages), Sweden (4 snow stages).

We'll be using the stock F2 Kit Cars, which means a choice between the Seat Ibiza Kit Car and the Peugeot 306 Maxi Kit Car.

You can usually expect a service area & tuning break after every pair of stages. There will also be progress saving possibilities before the last Germany stage, before most stages in Wales, before stage 3 & 5 in Finland, before every stage in Sweden (if it works as it should).

There will be 1 event each weekend for 4 weeks in a row and you'll have 3 to 3 and a half days to complete the stages for each event. 1st event starts tomorrow.

Event 1 - Rally Germany: 06:00/6am UTC Dec 1 - 06:00/6am UTC Dec 4

Event 2 - Rally Wales: 06:00/6am UTC Dec 8 - 06:00/6am UTC Dec 11

Event 3 - Rally Finland: 14:00/2pm UTC Dec 14 - 06:00/6am UTC Dec 18

Event 4 - Rally Sweden: 20:00/8pm UTC Dec 21 - 06:00/6am UTC Dec 25

 

Seeing that Dodge is playing from 3rd person view, I also felt like it would be fair to mention that unless any of you actually hate 1st person, I recommend using or at least trying FPV out, since it's just better to drive that way in almost every way. It's definitely a lot easier to "feel" the car and control it in 1st person, for me at least.

I’ll only be playing using vr.  You can play third person in vr, which is really weird, but I’ll be doing it all first person.  Not gonna expect everyone to play in first person though, whatever you all prefer is cool with me :)

I'll try it, but I'm an old school gamer and 3rd person is how I learned to drive in games.

      This is a job I've thought of a while ago and seeing as I popped on to the creator recently I thought I'd try create it. 
      This is a very experimental job requiring speed and teamwork. The stage I'm at now is just a proof of concept to make sure it works. If it does work as planned then I'll update the props and make it look pretty,
      The premise of the job is to have one of your team jump in the drivers seat of the wastelander and drive as fast as you can to the capture point at the end of the track. The rest of your team will be stood in the back of the vehicle with a choice of two weapons.
      Upto two players per team will have a homing launcher, their job is to take out the opposite teams wastelander on the other track. The rest of the team are armed with flare guns. It's their job to deflect any homing missiles coming towards their wastelander.
      This job really needs a minimum of 6 in toral to get working and will work better at a maximum of 8 per team. I don't think anymore people will fit on a wastelander but I can try and add more if needed.
      It will be important to try and set off as quickly as possible, don't hang around deciding whose doing what job, just climb on and go for it. 
      As I've said this is highly experimental and I'm planning on making lots of changes once the concept has been tested. Rounds are set to 5 minutes,  1 vehicle needed to win the round, 1st to 3 rounds to win. 
      I'm hoping this works.

      For fast cars, contact, catch up and slipstream. Watch where you are driving and don't hit anything.

      A track created in order to test and maybe use in a upcoming event. Intended contact, slipstream and catchup ON. 1 lap is about 6 min (10 about an hour). Being a transform race its limited to 16 players.
       

      The regular version does not allow customs to be turned on, we all race in stock Swinger, Flash GT, XXR and Jester Classic.

      Note that the Customs version might require you to have a custom version of the Stinger GT, Stirling GT, Autarch and Elegy RH8 to keep up.

      Three peaks mountain bike races are quite common, so I'm told. They have never appealed to me, they seem somewhat oppressive. So my version has a few appropriate modifications.
