    This is where the results will be posted. If we manage to get them before they disappear into infinity and are lost, that is ;)

  3. I'm looking forward to some league racing. The other ones I race in haven't been doing much lately.
    My results will be showing up the user name of jon_i634. I use my son's steam account for rallying.

    I've just got this so expect to be firmly in the bottom. At least I can get involved now and then when time permits. Getting the chance to race in online leagues for AC and AMS are really hard for me right now.

  6. if it will be possible to use a tool to create the stage like BTB to RBR . = DR never die ;)
  7. Just did the Rally and general thoughts on the car...

    It handles just like any Porsche in any sim I've ever driven... In other words I was not having fun.
    It felt like it was constantly understeering and then I would snap into oversteer out of nowhere. It may have been my setup which was a quick fix with general things for RWD cars which deffinitly didn't solve the Porsche-esq problems...

    I'm sure there will be people who enjoy the car and will be able to tame it and set blistering times but for me, I'll stick with my Trusty Mini and Fulvia...
  8. Just finnished mine now. I enjoyed this rally, was fun.... On SS1 my handbrake set me up, and stop brake at the start so I did a false start :mad::mad::mad:
    Then I had to change the handbrake button and got back to the rythm! Se you guys next rally!
  9. At this moment 8th quickest so far, considering few spins on the monte carlo's ice it's pretty good
  10. Did the first 2, poorly (the Alpine does not like ice...),saved, then went on to do the next 3, having some fun and a bit more success. On my last stage, Dirt Rally informed me it could not upload my results. I had to kill it with Task Manager and lost my last 3 stages. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr....Hopefully have time again this evening. Really like the selection of stages
  11. A comeback today on dirt rally after a while away from the game. This was a good rally to test out this newAlpine car.
    First stage I had to adjust T500 to make car drivable. Fun to ride Dirt again but this car was a bit strange to drive. Car loved to drive in a strait line.. corner was not its best strength.

    many spins and struggled to get a good rhytm. This car must be fun in Greece stages. Did come almost last in ranking :notworthy:
