Not exactly. You still can't put a NASCAR stock car on Pikes Peak or do silly stuff like that (and I doubt we ever will), but some basic reskins like the one above aren't impossible.

Didn't see this posted, but oh well. If the mountain will not come to Muhammad, Muhammad will go to the mountain.

I haven't played this for a while and decided to try out the rallycross events tonight. My goodness they're hectic! Using a sequential shifter that isn't very close to the wheel meant that for 98% of the time I was driving with my right hand only, while my left hand did the constant shifts that a 6-speed car with very close ratios needs on a tight course.

It's tricky to get used to but I got through an entire event on 'normal' difficulty and came out as the winner, even if I did pass the finish line upside-down once. I recorded most of it through Shadowplay so will get some clips together when I have a chance. :)

It also proved that the input lag on my TV isn't too bad, if I can get through rallycross successfully then I shouldn't worry about it.

So I tried out both of the new rally cars. God I love Alpine A110, it is a rocketship between the 60s class and is much more fun to drive than boring Mini or Fulvia. The Renault 5 seems easier to drive than E30 or Sierra, maybe it is my ticket to winning an 80s championship.

Rallycross is my least favourite part of the game, so I tried out only the Mini, and in RX it is much more interesting to drive than on rally.

The new peugeot can't be driven on gravel Pikes Peak :( I knew it when it said it in the DiRT Show some time ago, but still held out hope. Dumb licensing!

I should play this more, but with a full Logitech G25 setup it's actually rather exhausting :lol:

With VR on the horizon it's going to be hard to resist because of games like this....

I bit the bullet and got this game after watching videos online from others....happy with it indeed. Don't play it as often as I should, but certainly have fun when I do load it up :mrgreen:
