    Has anyone found the ffb to be very light on a steering wheel? For me it just didn't seem to give much feeling through the wheel.
    Think I will have to set my shifter up as the handbrake to be able to effectively take tight turns.

    Oh. Thats a shame. I selected allow multiple runs and restart event. I guess there a few teething problems at the moment. Anyway it's more like the real thing. One shot only. Sorry guys.

    I'm pretty sure that ffb with Thrustmaster wheels is pretty weak with this game, there's a post on their Facebook page where they suggest the best settings. https://www.facebook.com/ThrustmasterOfficial

    Looks like I'm still not going to appear in the Standings. I do appear in the leaderboard for the current event but if you scroll through the League Standings my name doesn't appear. Hopefully they can sort out the niggles quickly.

    I've tried again, but didn't let me participate again... Once you crossed the finish line it's done till the next event..

    That's normal.. New game, new things to learn... :lol:

    But really happy with this game.. Just amazing, the more hours i spend on it, the more I'm loving it... :bowdown:

    Please codemasters...make a reboot of the ToCa games with the same quality as showed in Dirt Rally.. :drool: :bowdown:

    If you pause during the run you can restart

    First impressions from last night is that the game is amazing. Have to get better at adjusting my speed as I slide of course quite a few times but really liking it so far. I have also noticed the lack of FFb in my T300RS I will have to try those settings out.

    Although it would be wonderful to see a modern day ToCA game I think the commercial rights would be too expensive to justify a game. You never know though, the BTCC seems to be gaining in popularity every year. Fingers crossed.

    Agree the FFB is complete rubbish on DiRT Rally.
    As you say feels way too light & it's quite hard to tell what the car is doing & what it wants/going to do.
    Seems the PC guys have some tweaks that are working for them. Actually modding though.
    Started playing with some of the limited settings available & it feels a little better than at first...shame there is no practice area.

    Yeah a new ToCA game would be awesome...last one was on PS2 right?
    Released as V8 Supercars in Australia. Had a kinda easter egg Honda ride-on Lawnmower race in it iirc

    Lots of practice.. It's hard to come from not playing sim racing games for a while and come into dirt rally, love the physics and the graphics are incredible. Again though, the game itself is fantastic. A couple add ons I'd like to see in future patches though:
    1) Practice area
    2) Rallycross TT's (Solo runs)
    3) G29 FULL Support??? Maybe it's just me but no REV lights and ffb is very light.

    I think FFB is light across the board. Not much feeling in my T300RS.

    Messing with the steering linearity and steering saturation improved the ffb a lot for me. Try increasing linearity to 5, much more responsive and ffb stronger around centre.

    I hope we don't do any group b anytime soon, this past daily event I was 3 minutes off the leader, and finished without a rear left wheel. The passed two were equally as bad.

    I36.42for the RS500 and was all over the place. Maybe the wheel will help but it's still great fun getting one corner spot on. It's a bit like golf. You can be **** all round but mullering one straight down the middle off the 18th tee gives you a warm feeling inside. I don't play much golf.

    Here are the latest times. I surprised myself. There's a tight "right 2" corner on 85 ish percent of the track which is a killer.

    Where do I turn off abs? It's only set at 1 but I couldn't see how to do it.

    Just had a go at the Monte Carlo event in the Ford Sierra Cosworth, great fun. A couple of little errors towards the end of the stage, that second half is tough, but happy with the time. :)

    Here's a video of my run, love this game!!

    I still can't get a feel for the cars in the rally section of the game but last night I tried Pikes Peak in the wet with the Quattro S1 and what a joy that was :tup::)

    After 3 runs my time was 9:30 something and I'm sure I can better that as I had two slight offs during the best run.

    Feels like the game is starting to click with me now.

    Hi, I hope nobody minds but I've joined your league. I excel at falling off alps in small hatchbacks which will hopefully not be a massive disadvantage.

    Just requested to join! Looking forward to some clean and competitive racing on here. Also, to add on to the FFB issue, I noticed there wasn't much feeling in the wheel at first so I just turned everything up to 150% and turned up the sensitivity a bit. Made a huge difference for me. (I have the T300RS)
