OK, got a time in; a pretty good run up to the last 2 stages when something unknown alt-tabbed me causing a flat out 6th gear wobble when I unpaused; that knocked the rear right tyre which then...

Arrrgh! I canned my first run after some embarrassing slides off the road in Monte, second run was a beauty until I did the same thing again and completely lost the car off a cliff.
I will return...

Damn, that last set was fun. I love the Impreza anyway and I've been finalising a personalised gravel setup for it recently so that was really perfect. I was hanging onto Spriggsy with about 3...

Well I ran it a few times because of some minor mishaps ... scraped through in the end. The Mini is better on paper but the Ford feels so much better balanced when cornering for me.

Re-ran it and still came last - but I did shave over a minute and a half off my time so I'll take it

Speaking of spirit, did any of you watch Rally Finland? Meeke's drive on 13 is an amazing watch if you have WRC+

Well I've put in a time and it's not a very good one but damn that was fun. The head says "slow down this car has 1980s suspension and handling" and the heart says "fucking floor it" and then this...

That's my Cosworth run done ... not my finest driving; although the car was pretty good I made an embarrassing number of errors with a bunch of spins, and a really nasty moment where I had to respot...

That's my Escort run done - good fun and not too many spins but I did manage to blow out a tyre on stage 4 (opted to eat the 90s penalty and change it since it was one about the third corner). I had...

Have finished my run out and I was quite a bit slower on stages 5 & 6 - I really suck at hairpins in the Mini because its so slow I often struggle to get it to turn in even with the handbrake ...

Trundling through - the Mini is really quite fun to drive once you realise you can take most stuff flat out; it's all about retaining your speed. Just finished stage 4 and I see your time took a real...

Well played Grizzly. I for one could use the distraction - thanks again for setting this up.

Well I made it through the Greek stages in the Renault 5 despite a number of mishaps including spending much of stage 3 with no headlights ... looks like I am the only one to make it past stage 1 so...

I suspect what doomed us all was doing the practice run. I think you can save & quit from that screen if you've done no actual driving (just setup tweaks) but for some reason it considers the...

Save and exit from the pre-race launch screen (with the setup/practice options) in my case
30-05-2016, 09:56 AM
Ah well, not long to the next round at least
30-05-2016, 09:23 AM
Arrrgh. Noticed league had started and I have 1 hour left to do Pike's Peak, ran a practice run, saved it for later and now it won't let me back in! I think I'm cursed Grizzly :(

I know it's a little off-topic but can any of you offer advice on driving the Rallycross-spec Mini? I like the car a lot but I always get beaten off the line by the AI and can never place above 3rd...

I assume this new hillclimbing will be on the new dirt only version so we can all make like Ari ...?
10-04-2016, 03:58 PM
Recommendation to you all; purchase a Renault 5 Turbo. Bought it on a whim and damn that car is fun to drive!
I'll leave you with my 1st choice for next dirt rally expansion pack...

Oh damn ... I retired from the race intending to reset the season but it looks like the warning I skipped past was telling me that locks out the reset option. Bugger. Let this stand as a warning I...

Definitely only 9 finishers. If anyone else had finished it I would've been 10th, my time was that bad!
Afraid I don't recall who got 8th though :(
[Edit] Though your sheet says mrpier and...

Hang on a second sweet, not only am I Cherry not Cheery but I definitely drove event 6. I finished a very poor 9th ;)
12-03-2016, 03:19 PM
A messy run but I made it through. The car was beautiful, my driving was ugly.
[Edit] Nice highlight vid Scruffy :)

Oops, thought I would take a quick pace run through the stages; didn't realise there are no restarts this time round!
My first stage was pretty awful as well - I'll persist though because maybe...
