    SO MUCH FUN!!!

    Finished the rally, not without a few hiccups but just love throwing the thing in with handbrake sideways and have it straighten itself out under power.

    Had a few rollovers and a puncture luckily very late in a long stage (and luckily rear tyre) so got the free change between stages

    Also @KoAStR shouldn't this be championship 10?

    Thread title says 8 and OP says 9... but we have threads up to 9 already

    Yep, that was fun, had an almost 2 minute lead as well until the last stage when the game crashed. DNF I guess. :(

    That's a shame :(

    When we started doing this you and I were pretty close, but now you have me beat easily on pace. Well done!

    Yeah, I'll put it down as a "mechanical failure" but game crashes and server issues are just too common with this game unfortunately. I wish Codemasters would sort out those bugs.

    @UrsineSaturn9 are you tuning the car at all or just running stock with soft tyres?

    Generally just stock with softs, but because this car is so gutless I did shorten the final gear ratio a bit, that's all

    was tracking @UrsineSaturn9 pretty closely until the middle of stage 3 where I fully stacked it, which rattled my cage a bit and slowed me down for the rest of the rally. I went off on every stage once after that apart form the last one where I just had a spin lol.
    I enjoy the twistys, just can't handle the high speed sections over bumps etc. I haven't got the reflexes for it.

    Bring on wales!

    looking at the leaderboard I'm presuming the 208 is the weapon of choice this season? I just went with the fiesta as it's the only one i've really driven before

    Started well, but then realised it was 3 stages between services and had softs on.
    Stage 4 was going well then hit a gate in the hi speed bumpy section popped front right tyre and punctured the right rear allthough I didn’t know this yet: Made it to the end.
    Stage 5 thought good I’ve got 4 tyres again, but noticed rear tyre looked flat, sure enough pops 10 seconds into the stage.
    Finished on 3 tyres
    Stage 6 still on 3 tyres crashed in the hi speed section at the start, and popped the other rear tyre:roflmao:
    Spent the rest of the stage driving on mcds trays doin loop de loops, snd eventually blew the engine before the finish line :whistling::whistling:

    I've never liked driving FWD much (said the GTI owner), but I had a semi-successful rally; the car was only upside-down twice!
    I chose to run softs all the way based on some fairly subjective comments I read on the internet.
    I thought I'd share my FFB settings for anyone that might be interested. Thrustmaster T300RS on PS5:

    Great turn out and some stiff competition to kick off this season. Cheers all for getting involved, let's keep it going! :thumbsup:

    Was a bit last minute for me with alot of life getting in the way this week, but fun none-the-less.
    FWD probably nobody's forte but felt good to do something different. :)
    @sparklehead83 and @paps though maybe exceptions to this with stand out personal results this round.
    @paps congrats best result yet I'd wager. :cool: Unfortunately not showing up in the codies championship standings o_O so I've manually slotted you in and bumped points down a position for the rest of the ladder.
    @UrsineSaturn9 bad luck mate, still not last this round so that's some consolation.

    Looking forward to next week. :geek: beep boop beep

    So first to tackle Wales didn't do great but had a ball. Rolled about 10 times down a hill and lost a minute on reset. Hit a lot of gates but didn't get any flats for once. Good luck all.
