    I entered despite not playing any DR2 in many months..
    Was very cautious with hardcore damage and got through stage 1 unscathed only getting stuck on an incline after an off costing me a handful of time having the FWD pull me back on course.
    2nd stage was my worst of 4, front puncture early on after pinging off a gate costing me the 1 minute tyre change, then picked up a rear puncture a bit later which while more tolerable than a front puncture i still felt like i was driving on ice not gravel also got beached and had to call for another recovery.
    3rd stage went smooth except slightly overshooting a hairpin and picking up a forced 10 second penalty.
    Stage 4 also was mostly fine but got a bit off line and had a small head on with a tree which did in the radiator and had to call on the recovery gods to pull me out.
    Happy to finish after stage 2, had fun though as i enjoy the f2 kit cars.

    Well, stage 1 started off well.... and then stage 2 came along. A puncture early on, put it in the ditch and then a second puncture half way through without another spare, so crawled around with no front left tyre to hobble home. Stage 3 and 4 were okay, but the damage was done

    It was brutal eh. I got a puncture stage 1. Car was trashed end of stage 2. Quick fixed as much as possible, to enter stage 3 still pretty battered. But some set up adjustments saw me keep it on the road (with just one roll over :roflmao:) from there on in.

    Up now at Poland. same format as last time, 4 stages across 7 days. enjoy.

    H3's are good fun. Got some clean runs in, but my frame rate struggled through the heavily treed sections. Opted for medium's for stages 3 and 4, cause 32 km and didn't want a puncture

    My frame rate struggles a bit not so much with the trees but when there's additional objects as well, like cars, bails etc (I already have crowd set to off but these remain).

    Glad you enjoyed it! They are great fun eh. My favourite class I think, just so raw.

    My main goal was to play it cautious over blind humps and avoid (hardcore) damage. It's so easy career off at full speed and take hard hit on a bank or trees. Especially with the relatively high surface degradation making things even more unpredictable. It worked! Had a couple of minor scrapes but no big hits.

    Thought I'd jump in on this casual club you've got going on. I was pretty happy with my times considering I haven't been on much this year, although I lost a rear wheel half way through stage 3 and had to retire unfortunately. I've forgotten how much I enjoy this game, see you next week!

    Well :roflmao:
    Completely trashed the car during shakedowns and had to do a bunch of quick fixes, no biggie as i drove relatively clean until the service area and was able to properly repair a lot of things. Made a mistake and decided hard tyres for the 2 long stages wouldn't be so bad but soon realised I had little to no grip and found myself in a tree with a puncture. Picked up mechanical damage and limped to the finish but stage 4 the engine gave up and had to retire.
