  2. No fancy intros, I'm afraid. It's just me, not Warren :tongue:

    One of my favourite RBR cars, with realistic damage. RWD car, tricky to drive if you haven't tried it yet. Great fun if you have.

    Classic gravel stages, most of them should be fairly easy to handle.

    It's worth noting that the handbrake will be of no use in this car.


    Please Note: All drivers must select the Volvo 242 LE

    I'll be there. I did a small test and this car is a blast to drive! great little car. Nice poster BTW :wink:

    Manuel Samaniego - MDSP - US
  7. Escort is also one of my favourites, so we might be doing that one too :good:. Unless Warren manages to get online and yells at me :D

    All credits go to Damien :good:
  8. The only yelling from me is the cursing because I can't join this Rally, I love the ol' VOVO. Great Rally Senad, this one will be heaps of fun. :banana:
  9. Just recycling. Figured one can't go wrong with flowing gravel stages and a nice 2 tonne Volvo :D

    EUX - Monday 17:00 GMT session added :good:
  10. Paul Newton - iam27paul - US

    Great car.
  11. Anthony Pahl - apahl - OC

    Never driven car, all new stages except Joux Plane, never tried realistic damage. Should be fun.
  12. Joe Melin - j03 - US

    Should be fun!
  13. Definitely give it a try before the actual rally. It's more... interesting to drive than the A or FWD cars :D
  14. Tried it tonight, yes a very different beast:) No throwing this thing around, looks like you need to be smooth with both the wheel and pedals. Like it Senad, good choice:D. How I will get through stages with realistic damage without driving like my grandma is another question.
  15. Here's my pro driving. I expect some realistic damage issues as well :D.

    A question, are you guys planning to make a video of this Rally? because i painted my volvo and i could send the replays if there's going to be a video.

    Good luck, this car is either a lot of fun or a lot of frustration sometimes.

  17. I made a couple of Rally club videos a while back, but stopped because of hardware issues. Nobody picked it up yet, so no videos.

    Oh well.

    Thanks Senad
  19. So, has anyone tried this car on the french tarmac mod stages? Its ridiculous, like driving on a sheet of ice. I stopped on the slightest incline and could not get going again because the tires were spinning so much. Had to back down and up on to a bank to get rolling forward again.

    The gravel mod definitely has some issues.
  20. I painted my car too. This is what nearly every one of these cars looks like in the US:
