Update on changing UDP port
By large request, it is now possible to change port on which telemetry is received. It`s located under settings and applied immediately after clicking Apply button. Settings are still not automatically saved, so after restart you`ll need to update port again. Saving settings is scheduled for future release.

Update regarding OBS Studio and streaming
OBS Studio is not able to capture window of the dashboard, it`s a limitation of the way .NET framework (on which dashboard is built on) is implementing window transparency. However you can still stream with the Dashboard being shown by using Display Capture. That way OBS will capture whole screen including the dashboard. I`m looking into possible solutions of capturing Dashboard window separately.

Suspension usage specific per car

Full bar (white) indicates that suspension is fully compressed (bottomed out), empty bar (gray) means suspension is fully extended (e.g. during the jump).

Orange number shows maximum suspension travel for current run (compression + extension).

Numbers inside "tires" (3, 4, 5, 1) increase every time suspension bottoms out (for each wheel respectively), meaning that you either have to increase ride height, stiffen the springs or increase compression damping.

Dashboard works with all cars, all classes and automatically detects parameters. Only suspension telemetry is car specific and car has to be manually selected.

Classes and cars currently supported for suspension telemetry:

  • Ford Fiesta R5
  • Peugeot 208 R5 T16
  • Mitsubishi Space Star R5
  • ŠKODA Fabia R5
  • Citroën C3 R5
  • Volkswagen Polo GTI R5

  • Ford Fiesta R2
  • Opel Adam R2
  • Peugeot 208 R2

  • Subaru WRX STI NR4
  • Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X

Group B (4WD)
  • Audi Sport quattro S1 E2
  • Peugeot 205 T16 Evo 2
  • Lancia Delta S4
  • Ford RS200
  • MG Metro 6R4

H1 (FWD)
  • Mini Cooper S
  • Lancia Fulvia HF
  • DS Automobiles DS 21

H2 (FWD)
  • Volkswagen Golf GTI 16v
  • Peugeot 205 GTI

F2 Kit Car
  • Peugeot 306 Maxi (DLC)
  • SEAT Ibiza Kitcar (DLC)
  • Volkswagen Golf Kitcar (DLC)

Up to 2000cc
  • Ford Focus RS Rally 2001
  • Subaru Impreza (2001)
  • Citroën C4 Rally

How to run the dashboard?
1. In Dirt Rally 2.0, go to Basic Graphics options and select Display mode to Windowed Borderless.
2. Start the application.
3. Enjoy your new dashboard/telemetry.
Hint: you can move both dashboards around by simple clicking on it and dragging it around.

How to enable telemetry output in DR2?

1. Locate the config file by going to the following path in windows explorer (Note: this may be different for you, depending on your operating system). Replace “{Yourusername}” with your username.

C:\Users\{Yourusername}\Documents\My Games\DiRT Rally 2.0\hardwaresettings

2. Locate a file called “hardware_settings_config

3. Make a backup of this file (just in case).

4. Open the file in a text editor (like notepad).

5. Locate the following line:
<udp enabled=”falseextradata=”0” ip=”″ port=”20777″ delay=”1″ />

6. Update “enabled” to “true”.

7. Update “extradata” to “3

8. You new line of code should look like this:
<udp enabled=”true” extradata=”3″ ip=”″ port=”20777″ delay=”1″ />

9. Save the file and start the game.

Suspension telemetry window
For now, live suspension telemetry only works with R5 cars, which you can select from settings within the program. You can see in the video I`m driving Fiesta R5 and it`s using those settings. Later on I`ll add other categories.

The Dashboard/Telemetry resets itself automatically at beginning of each stage. If you want to see the live data and analyze your run, just record your run (both screens, game and dashboard) and you`ll see exactly how your suspension works at each bump.

Full Data Logging
There is now possibility to log all telemetry data to CSV file. If you`d like to do so, go to settings in app, end enable"Log Data". It will automatically save each run in separate file in the folder where application is located.

Multiple HUD`s
Dashboard has 3 screens + live suspension as separate window. Shift between 3 HUD`s and Telemetry modes with button "Next dashboard".

If you`d like to see something specific being displayed, I`d be happy to throw it in. You can share your comments here or on steam:

Thanks, this is awesome!!!
Thanks so much! This speedometer and everything else in this mod is so much better then games original! So simple to install and use. Everyone should get this. :)
Hi. I'm having trouble installing this. Where do I copy the folder to? Thanks so much for the help.
very comprehensive!
I have to admit that is a good idea for Dirt 2.0, and i feel almost cheap to rate the app 3 stars, but there is too many problems to me:

Font can't be changed (i have a normal font, not like screenshots)
Speed doesn't appear completely (as soon as i drive faster than 100kmh, i just see 10, then 110 kmh i see 11, etc.)
you can make this app bigger or smaller, but you have to adjust height witdh together only, like a ratio (maybe it explains why i can't see 3rd number on speedometer)
Sometimes, the app loss metrics and i have to pause the game, wait 2/3 seconds to see metrics coming back
sometimes telemetry tracking force on wheels doesn't work at all on track with 208 R5.
Changing of font was something I intended for future.
As of now, it`s using LCDMono font, you`re probably missing it so it uses whatever the default it can get - which throws design off. Try downloading LCDMono and run again.
Great mod
it's very good, but OBS Live doesn't detect it as a "capture window" for an overlay, it just shows me a black square on screen
It`s a know limitation of .NET implementation (on which app is based). I`m trying to figure out workaround. In the meanwhile you can use Capture Screen to capture both game and app.
Very useful indeed dude
