    It is not about revs, it is about torque! Keep the momentum going while burning that oil!

    General RBR Club Rally Rules:
    1. You must use your real name when signing up for the event.

    2. As always, Club Events are for casual fun racing. It's always great fun to be fastest, and win. But this is not the main thing to achieve in Club Events. The club events are for developing your skills and test new cars and stages.

    3. The usual RaceDepartment rule do apply. You need to keep two wheels on the road. Even though this is a rally game. We will not check this on replays, but for yourself, and all the other drivers please follow this rule.

    4. RaceDepartments Terms of Service do apply. If you haven't read it, or don't remember the 19 points of the ToS. Please read it again.

    5. If you feel the need to contact anyone about something that's happened on the forum or on the stages for some reason, you can always report the post. Or you can send a Private Message to either Ole Marius Myrvold or Roy Magnes (by clicking on the link in the names).

    6. The RBR Club Staff reserve the right to ban any person from driving in the Rally Club. The time of the ban will differ from each situation.

    7. As this is not a circuit, there is no possible way for one driver to affect another during the events. By such, there should not be any reason for drivers to be angry with one eachother after a rally. A good rule is to read through your post before posting it. If it comes across as angry, or full of sarcasm. It might be good idea to wait some more minutes to post. Remember the general RD rule: " Mutual respect between the people using the RaceDepartment.com website(s) and forums. This means you may not personally attack other forum users. malicious behaviour and bullying will not be tolerated. If there is a problem report it to the staff."

    8. As in RDRC, restarting stages is not allowed. You are however allowed to start a new session,-and get results from that, if you have not passed the first sector on the first stage. If you have passed the first sector on the first stage. That session will count towards the result.

    DRIVER BRIEFING NOTES:

    1. The car is FWD with a fairly powerful engine. The car is still relatively easy to handle, allthough you will have to push it to be driving really fast with it. Have fun!

    2. RBR Pacenotes are designed for default cars, Normal conditions and Good weather. Please remember to adjust your speeds to suit these cars.

    3. Tyre selections are the drivers responsibility. If you use the automatic tyre selection option in RSRBR2015, please beware that sometimes it may give you the wrong tyre for the conditions. Always double check your tyres, it is critical, especially for Snow Stages.

    4.Please ensure to install the all the packs needed. Everything needed is linked to in blue in the opening post!

    5. Password is the usual RD password - if you for some reason do not know that. PM @Ole Marius Myrvold

    6.Please report any problems caused by the stages, or the inability to make sessions, posts and times right from the Rally Club Staff!

    If requests are made for any additional timezones, or changes to Start times to better suit your local needs, we will try to include them ( but within the Monday/Tuesday periods).

    And with this post! The sign up is open! We wish everyone the best of luck! And hope that no one gets in any trouble!

    Stage wins:
    Magnar Hårstadsveen - 7 stage wins
    Torbjørn Withbro - 1 stage win

    Congratulations to Magnar and Torbjørn ahead of me on the podium this week, and thanks to everyone who participated! With the summer approaching, and new games released, I expect a lower crowd than usual, but I am always pleased to wee the ones that take their time to drive our fun rallys :)

    Not the best of rallies for me. 2 CFH's and lots of spins and offs. It did not help that last week went to driving DiRT instead :p

    Ahhh it is so good to be back home in a game you can feel what the car is doing....after a few days with the dirt game.

    The rally was ok for me, I had a spin on one stage but just lost some time.

    Thanks for a nice evening

  13. OK run exept some close huggings with some iron poles and following ditch time in Osli-Stryckovy. 30-40 sec lost there.. Lovely car on solid surface. Agreed with Magnar that RB is still the physics king. Well off to Dirt game again :) Damn career.. unlockin hel from codemasters..

    Thanks for organizing Roy..
     
  14. I tried downloading/installing update04 from RSRBR but it didn't seem to finish correctly and now I cannot get RSRBR to load/run a track - anyone has similar problems?

    Works like usual for me. What is the size of the file? I downloaded the file from the link above, but have not tested the torrent link found at the Rallyesim forum.

  18. Just tried the above link and it finnished correctly but is still failing. Old file was same as yours - tried a MD5 on the file and it says the checksums don't match, presuming that i ran MD5 correctly - might try a system restore or install update 03 again.
     
  19. Try the update 03 and then, before trying update 04 again, delete all Update 04 files you have laying around.

    I've had the issue, though that was with GSC Extreme, that if I had two of the same files, no matter the number of the install file (for example Update 04 AND Update 04 (1)) it still read the first file I had laying around of the same number which was faulty, took me 2 weeks to fathom that issue out.

    If that doesn't work, try a completely new install of RBR before you consider a System restore.
