    For each place where it say "checkpoint" in the itinerary you can press "save and quit" in the menu where you can repair car, setup the car etc. :)

    Fine here, just done my stages, well, 6 of them! Have you tried restarting the game and/or laptop/pc? might just need to try again.

    I hate you all
    Before I ramble (brag) one quick question, do I have the replay files in the game or I need to record just after the stage?
    Now for the bragging part:
    - I love this game, even tho my talent is limited(just lot's of practice) but with my schedule kinda hard to practice or know if I should race today or another day, the point is that I am awake since Monday at 22H so atm I have 26h since I am awake and in 30min I live for another 18h trip, YEY....arrived today and had to do it today
    - one spin(****ing Sweden), one crash(off course Finland) and one recovery(wales, hate myself for that as it was just stupid at very low speed) so I think in perfect conditions I would have had a 20sec faster time, but more than happy that for now, I beat @robt100 .

    Dear teammate @Baddog you have some big shoes to fill, good luck

    Al the bragging is that atm I am 8th overall in a 70's car:))

    @Ole Marius Myrvold probably it's written somewhere but I forgot, at the end is there a possibility to see for a stage times based on classes, 4wd+,4wd-,2wd+,2wd-. thank you

    No saving of replays as per usual Codemasters games. Which is why we went the route with the Magazine for this season ;) You must record after each single stage if you want to.

    Not from Codemasters side, but from @Michael Nelson after the rally :)

    6 stages in on PS4 in my massively overpowered 80's Lancia 037, and currently leading the more modern 2010 WRC machines! Granted, we only have a handful of PS4 competitors... but curious to see how the 037 stacks up overall!

    I believe the drivers in the seventies class may have to go and "seed" the roads with nails and drywall screws before Mr.C and Baddog do their runs. :devilish:

    Which short cut did you take?:p
    I know i lost a lot of time on the gravel stages at finland and GB (puncture for a whole stage!) but still don't think that would count for 2 minutes of time! Well done, I think you've found your calling Mr C. :thumbsup:

    Monte Carlo and Germany felt right in my element, Greece and Wales was all about the setup (found one on workshop, setup gave me confidence to joggle the car was quite fun) Sweden I did about 6runs of each stage, Finland had no setup and drove like snail :(
    Atm my ffb is utter **** also, dirt rally doesn't support Thrustmaster TS-PC it seems and for the life in me I couldn't find a setting, anyway Ty I am sure that for the proper rally you'll be on it

    Made a good start in Monte Carlo, then lost it all in Greece and Sweden. Made so many mistakes. Clawed back a bit of time in Finland and Germany... Now on to Wales.

    Good thing this is only a shakedown. I deffs need to practice more in the gravel and snow. #TarmacIsLyfe

    Hats off for you! :thumbsup: I love this car, and loved to take it to RDRC (was my first option):( but its really hard to not make a mistake or spin with it. If you have been able to "master the beast" is really a good performance!
