    We'll try without an entry list here as well, so the results will show up here! :)

  3. Will most likely show up in the Kadett but will wait and see if anyone else also writes what cars they are picking (am a bit of a sucker for the Mini and the Kadett which Ole will know by now :p ).

    Looking forward to my first online run in Dirt :)

    Well, I'm going with the MK2. There is a chance to see @Roy Magnes in a kit car if he does his usual choice :)
     
  5. Mini for me.. don't like 2wd:thumbsdown: anyway Jonatan lets do this in a 1960 "beast wagon".
    Will see if that little critter can get enough speed to jump/lift off/take off :cautious:

    With H-shift and clutch?

    Sounds good Ole cheers and a huge choice!
     
  7. Certainly H-shift, without it it's like trying to eat only rice when you can smell some curry chicken in the house :p

  10. So I drove the event in the Kadett and had a pretty nice time.

    The brakes being set too far forward and a tad bit too low gearratios was the only real complaints I've to offer up :)
    A lot of handbrake turning in many of the stages... been driving far too much Golf 1... :p

    Had an off into the trees in Finland after miss hearing a note, heard keep left over crest when it was straight...

    Equalled the 037 RWD on the 1st two stages so looks like those are fairly close at least :)

    Just completed the event in the Seat Ibiza.
    Found the car fun to drive but had my now usual Racedepartment slip ups, spun on the Route the Turini, then had a jump start on Pant Mawr stage (first ever in game) which led to a roll due to mind being on the roll not notes :(
    First time out proper in the Ibiza, found the default set-up good to drive, will definitely use the car again :thumbsup:
     
  12. I'm in. No idea what I'll drive tho LOL. I've still barely scratched the surface of this game.
    I'm going to try "un-linking" the paddles and shifter on my Thrustmaster RGT, and assign the handbrake to the shift knob while keeping shifting on the paddles. .. right no handbrake is on the "analog" paddle on my wheel (the RGT has both a clicky paddle and a smooth paddle on the wheel)
    the only thing there is the shifter will be either on-or-off, no "feel" as with the smooth paddle on the wheel. Worth trying tho.
    Hopefully I actually make it thru all the stages this week LOL
     
  13. haven't been in the club/league section for a while, title implies i need to check here more often to not miss the league once it starts. i thought with no news on the league side as far as codemasters is concerend, we would not run it. glad we will.

    Shouldn't have happened, there is checkpoints on each stage for this reason. If anything happens, you'll just go back to the last checkpoint O.o
     
  19. I have run the stages already. I so love that Lancia 37. That thing is murder on those icy stages... ( i do believe I am not one of the more fast persons here but i like driving the thing! )

  20. Was going well until my co-driver cocked up. Calls a right 4, so I throw it in like a right 4 and then he says "crest". By then it was too late, smashed into a tree and then in Sweden I got stuck on top of a soft snow bank... Yeah.
