    Our next Rally is open for sign-up.

    We have an event for the high speed gravel jockeys this time. We step up to the WRC cars for some fast flowing, adrenalin charged action across the USA Stages. These stages are very fast and flowing, and ideally suited to allow the WRC cars to show their exceptional power and handling. However, at these speeds, these Stages can be treacherous if you make a mistake, so will bravery win the day???
    Our Stages will be all gravel this time, using all of the stages of USA. The weather conditions are mostly mild, but be prepared for a little rain and darkness.

    Credits to Damien for the great Event Banner. :thumb:

    Good luck all, and hope we see a good roll up. :rally:

    A little video to help you see the car choices.




    EDIT: I have used a few custom skins in this video, all are available at the Rallyesim website and are easily installed using the RSRBR Skin Manager.

    Dismal performance last time, but in my defence I had never driven those cars and never driven on snow XD

    Sign me up for this one please :)

    Fixing the Citroen Xsara 2007 engine sound

    If you are like me and find the Citroen Xsara 2007 engine sound to be poor (quiet and very distorted), here is a fix.
    Open your main Richard Burns Rally folder, then go to /RSRBR2010, /Sounds /Engines. Scroll down to the file A8W-07.ini.
    Make a backup of this file in case of problems. (ie. rename it to A8W-07.BAK )
    Open the file (A8W-07.ini) with Notepad, and find the line Car1=WRC_citroen_2

    Change it to Car1=WRC_citroen_3.
    Save the file as A8W-07.ini.

    You will now have a much better sound for your Xsara.
     
  8. I'm affraid he will steel beat me :D . LEt's talk with his team maybe we can bribe somenone to let him in 3 wheels, maybe them I'll have a chance.

    RobbKull(r27kul) EU timezone, I know it's not a car choice, but Subaru for me
     
  9. Sorry, double post. How can I delete it ?
     
  10. I'm in. Mark Birney (Harpo245)
     
  11. Senad Subasic (mfodor) - Europe

    EDIT: wanted the Lancer, but it's too oversteery for me, and I don't have the time to try to setup the car. Impreza it is :love:. Or maybe Škoda, hm...

    Will also try to get team speak running.
     
  12. Imagine my surprise when I get home and found a peugeot key ring and hat on my desk. I think we will run this one :) Even though a night at frazier wells is looming :)

    John Low - elmomarty - OC

    Cheers
     
  13. Put me as a maybe. I will confirmed during this week end.

    Sebastien Levret (Mayland) EU
     
  14. Sign me up, Warren - Łukasz Demolin - Maggot666PL - EU Time.

    I find US stages to be more and more suitable to my driving style, so I'm looking forward to this one. I'm not even thinking about battling for P1, but it will still be lots of fun. I just have to decide whether I'm going to run the Focus or the Soobie :)
     
  15. Sign me up, I want to see my teammate performance !
    Ludovic Cogotti - Solcius - EU Time
     
  16. How true.

    Keeping one's enthusiasm in check is going to be the hard part of this. My test with the peugeot on one of the au stages ( in keeping with my new edict not to practice or recce any of the rally stages but to at least get a feel for the car ) resulted in a very quick reminder from the peugeot people about what happened before. I hope I can take the lead out of my right foot and be a bit lighter with it :)

    See ya's all at the rally

    I found this previously with the Peugeot 307. It is surprisingly fast but more difficult to control. I used to hate it and avoided it like the plague. Then, after being forced to drive it in an earlier Rally (and regularly smashing it to pieces in practice), I backed off a bit and just concentrated on keeping it on the road, and my times were surprisingly better than many other cars. I think the Pug is deceptively quick, but you need to drive it with some caution. :cool:

    The Subaru and Skoda, by comparison, seem to handle more predictably and allow you to push harder, but then you need to push harder in those cars.

    I'm leaning towards the Xsara, always been a favourite of mine.
     
  18. Yes please :) I hope to not crash this time. That was my problem before. Toby Davis (Toby Davis) EU.

    PLEASE NOTE:

    We have made a slight change to the weather conditions for SS06, Frazier Wells II, it will now be good weather. (the Server wouldn't allow damp for this Stage).
     
  20. i will have my annual leave this week, so i cant join you this time. i am so sad about it. i think this time the rally will be very hard. Good luck to everyone, especialy the subaru drivers :) (since i am a fan of IMPREZA)
