Wow, the default setup for Grp B in Australia was rough. I caused some damage during the shakedown, so I couldn't dial in my settings, but I was bouncing all over the place! I tried jacking the car up to max ride height, and stiffening the Fast Compression damping, as well as softening Rebound, and it made a huuuuuge difference. I went from bouncing all over the place causing some near misses, to being able to go much faster through the bumps without bottoming out.

Yeah, I didn't tune at all so the first 3 stages were a pogo fest.  I copied a setup online for the last stage, which oddly suggested lowering the car, and it was much better.  I still might go back and play with it, because that seems weird.

I just started a new rallybro championship - 3 stages, every 3 days 80% RWD categories.

You guys have gotten faster and I've gotten slower, crashed out last week and this week.  I think I peaked a month or two ago.

I've crashed out the last 2 weeks.   REally I've been working on my MR2 more than anything else so I apologize I haven't been super active.   I've got 3 events in 4 weeks which is awesome but since I've broken the car twice already its been hectic.

Dang, some of the guys in the rallybro championship are fast. I'm being gapped like it's nothing, haha. They seem to be consistent too, I don't think I've seen one of the leaders wipe out and let me snag the spot yet.

So today I "made" a mount for my shifter to work with my playseat challenge (I put a piece of plywood under the wheel to extend the shelf over).

I hopped in Dirt Rally 2 to do some testing.  Holy balls this game is much harder if you actually use the shifter/clutch to drive the manual trans cars.  The super tight ratios mean you are shifting constantly, especially if you drive something like the 320hp A class STi.  

One issue I have is missed shifts though.  There is zero feedback from the game if you are going to miss a shift, and if you do, you have to move the shifter back to neutral to reattempt, which is a bit counterintuitive.  Any suggestions for how to improve this?  I've heard some people move the clutch so that 50% travel = 100% engagement, which is more like a real car.

I've been using the G27's H pattern shifter, but I never thought it was too bad with the shifting. Sometimes I miss, but usually it's because I've let off the clutch too soon. I just try again if that happens.

I tried to use the links on page 1, and also tried searching the dirtrally2 page for the GRM club and kept coming up empty.  Are there updated names for the clubs that run currently?  I'd like to join a non-DLC club.

Also, what's the difference between the rallybro and regular series?

Participation was waning recently, I wonder if they are just inactive :(

My participation dropped during this WFH business, I wonder if others have had the same issue.  Hope you are able to find something, its crazy fun.

I just picked the controller back up, rallybro championship is live for the month of september now.  

 

Rallybro is mostly RWD cars and a lot of DLC content. I have been slacking on updating it recently as I haven't been playing but I've been winding down on some other projects and housework that will now allow me to play guilt free. There are several stage rally people in the rallybro series and a few others I still loose to and its a top 100 global time I put down lol. Once you get the hang of RWD its so much fun.
