    Sign Ups!
    As all drivers in the RD League on RaceNet can drive, and we won't ever have a limit, we are testing how it will work out without signups in the thread. But feel free to discuss the event here :)

    in ;)
  5. Looking forward to trying this out!
    I don't suck as much as I expected, but I still suck pretty bad ;) :p
    Question: Do people do practice runs before entering the event?
  6. I might do this, but I proper hate Monté Carlo, so not 100% :)

    Some do, some don't. I guess it depends on how much time one have to spare, and how you like the stages.
    I never practice in general. I mean. I don't practice before any club events, and I don't really practice before league events either. I have other stuff to do:ninja:

    You and me both!
  8. I suppose I should at least do a "recon" lap or two ...... I've never driven this stage. Nor most of the stages in the game ... seeing as I've only had it one week ;) lol

    Do the recce (as it is called in rallying) in a Mini Cooper, and not go over 80 km/h. Then it is a proper simulation.

    Not that anyone bothers with that :p

    man if only one could control that, and have a proper sim with recce and then a rally with time controls and liaison sections etc...
    ill keep dreaming...

    Would take a lot of time though! :p
  12. well ....... THAT was harrowing!
    threw the car off cliffs I don't know HOW many times in recce. finally went ahead and did stage 1 of the league event.
    I gotta say, this game really gets the night snow driving effect good. hypnotic. :thumbsup:
  13. Since I'm new to Dirt...

    Is it possible to take part in such events without owning the car in your garage? I saw that the RN events needed you to own the car yourself to participate in the events :unsure:

    If that is the case I need another week or 2 before I own a few more cars :roflmao:
  14. Yes, you can .... I was able to without owning it. :)

    Yup, all rallies on RD is made with top-tuned cars.
    We will not have many (if any) rallies with owned cars. As that means people would have to drive lots offline and grind to get the cars tuned. And that is boring.

    The Racedepartment curse strikes again!!!!
    I've had more spins, crashes and punctures in 7 stage than I got in the whole 24 of the monthly events. Come to think of it I don't think I had 1 crash in this months stages, and to top it off I fell of the road on the final stage :mad: still better luck next time. Said that last time :O_o:
  19. Well.... That depends on the car :p

    I've driven 2 championships in the 70's Kadett, so much fun to drive :D

    And then I simply skipped after 2 events of driving the 80's Beemer, no fun at all to drive, just frustration :thumbsdown:

    So it depends on the car(s) :whistling:

    Won't be able to make this event as I'm heading to bed after being called to work tomorrow. Will see if I can/will make the next one, unless it's the 80's cars :coffee:
  20. aww .. I went over a cliff in Stage 3, and then the game wouldn't let me continue :(
    makes sense I suppose, seeing as my car is totaled .... and I'm likely dead
