  1. Steering

    Axis & Digital


    My current driving style with RBR Challenge (no mods except run on RBRSSE)

    Any suggestion(s) would be helpful.

    I am going thru the FAQs and other tutorials btw.

  3. Thanks again Warren

    I've bookmarked those links and will be reading and taking notes.
    I'm slowly learning the some nuances of various tracks. Kinda hard to pick which I like best. France got some really tight tracks where I'm trying to observe my speed and braking distances, specially those approaching turns that require a flick or handbrake. Versus tracks in America, that are straighter and faster. I had to be mindful on how fast I'm really going.

    Just a little entertainment before I bid goodnight and thank you again

  4. I'm really LOOOOVING this game all over again

    Then the next step would be to get a (free) license and start rallying with us? :D
  6. disclaimer: I'm working most of the time, so if we have to get together on a certain time, like a COOP gaming, historically my schedule prevents me from doing so.

    If all I have to do is post screenshot of my time, then this is more possible. I don't mind coming in last in Rally. :D This is the only way it worked for me during my DiRT3 rallying shenannigans.

    the tutorial on how to Rally Online looks complicated. :alien:

    That's the good thing, we can set up a session for you to drive, whenever you want :) Times get saved on the rallyesim site, and Roy (the other Rally Club man) get's the times from all sessions, compile them, and voila, you have got yourself a shiny bright result, that shows how good you just did, or how unlucky you was with the random engine stall that prevented you to get through the hairpin like you wanted! ;D

    The process is pretty easy - you go on the RSCenter Online, public session, highlight the session you want, click enter and just drive :) Easy peasy :D - just remember to choose the correct car ^^,
    The guide actually makes it look more complicated that it is! :)

    The most "complicated" is to get a license - and that, is a thing you can get here

  8. okay, I'll give it the college-try this weekend.
    I working straight 5-days on first job and two part time on Wed & Thurs, and I'll see if I still have energy to share some crazy crashes :roflmao:

    Good thing we drive Monday and Tuesday then? :ninja:

    Just remember, the rally club isn't serious business,it's the perfect place to start! It's just for fun (as long as I win) :)
  10. I'm watching some of your YT videos right now.
    I'm supposed to rally with that skill?:confused:

    I'll have to give that a try after I Google all the links and installation instructions.

    Not yet, but in some time? :) Practice ends up making you a master :)
  12. request:
    can I see some brake settings please?
    I keep locking my tires every time I have a knee-jerk reaction.
    I try to concentrate in using/tapping my handbrakes vs foot brake, but I think my setting is still not refined.

    Locking rear, or all?
    Oh, and I'm not the right person to answer, I drive default settings all the way! :)
  14. happening on my Ford Cosworth. I'm assuming its the rear????:unsure:

    Yep, looks like you are locking the rears.
    I assume that is one of the 4WD Escorts (not the RWD version).
    Possible help:
    Brake earlier to avoid hitting them too hard in panic.
    Did you put some curvature into your Wheel settings (as per the setup advice earlier).
    You can modify the brake bias settings in the car setup screens. Try reducing the front and rear brakes pressure, but take more off the rears. For tarmac, you need the brake bias more to the front.

    BTW, that is a nice, but tricky stage. ;)
  16. will spend time on it, IF, I get a chance. Take screen shots of what-I-think-I'm-doing so we can comment on what-I'm-suppose-to-be-doing.:whistling:

    Mind if I copy some of your tips Warren?

    I'm always happy to help where I can. :) Some of the default setups can make the cars a handful, so I have found it worthwhile experimenting and learning about some of the setup parameters (especially brakes) to make the car more stable. Late braking in RBR is not the way to go, smooth controlled exits out of turns pay off a lot. Small off's in this Sim usually hurt you badly.

    Try playing around with the Pacenote Call Out timing too, give yourself time to get prepared for upcoming turns and hazards.

    I haven't "updated" to RSRBR2014 yet (still in 2013), but your video of that stage might give me motivation. ;)

  18. I'm currently installing the RSRBR 14 version.
    As soon as I'm ready with it, I will join you for some rallye club event. :)

    Some of the old Group A-cars have too high brake pressure on the rear compared to the front of the car. What I usually do is reducing the pressure bit by bit in the rear until I feel comfortable with how it brakes.
    I know for sure that the Escort Cosworth and the Celica ST205 is set up that way as default.

  20. So I gave these settings a try:

    Smooth Gravel and Smooth Snow (Falstone, Greenhills, Mineshaft etc ...)
    - Stiffness Front 60 / Rear 40
    - Helper Length 60 to 70 mm
    - Bump Front 5.0 / Rear 6.0
    - Rebound Front 7.0 / Rear 6.0
    - Fast Bump Front 6.5 / Rear 7.5
    - Camber -0.80 to -1.50
    - Toe Front -0.12 / Rear -0.30 to -0.50
    - Ride height from 190 to 210
    - Reduce Antiroll bar 15 to 25
    - Brakes front 7000 / Rear 3000

    and it helped a lot
