    AWD is nice in the snow. I drive a WRX or a X5. Learned in a Saturn sedan. Perfected my snow driving in a Bronco 2 man that was an experience:lol:

    Well you can improve your Corning till you get a wheel by switching to Left stick for steering and R2/L2 for throttle/brakes or right stick. Gives you as close as you can get till you get a wheel.

    Thanks will have to give it a try....i see the logic in using R2/L2 instead of using just your thumb on the X and square buttons...ie 2 fingers are quicker and more responsive than 1 thumb...Cheers


    Edit...well that's what my girlfriend say's...ha ha

    Just tried your Suspension and Drivetrain settings from your Suburu Impreza Sudan WRX STi '10 500pp Dirt tune on my Focus RS WRC 07 '08 also at 500pp on Toscana free run and got a 1:47.8 after a couple of laps...it will still need a few adjustments...but Hay Ho it works and there is faster times in her to be had....nice one..:tup:

    I might see if they work on the other 3 Rally Cars...:cheers:

    Here you go @shaunm80 your'e a top Rally Tuner...All these cars below have your Subaru WRX Sti '10 suspension and drivetrain settings on and all at 500pp..i just had to play around with the Weight Distribution,so some are slightly different than your settings..They all drive pretty well and not bad times at all on Toscana

    Citroen C4 WRC @08.............1:47.262...Spring rates are slightly on this car..so had to set them to F6.20 R5.25
    Focus RS WRC 07 '08............1:47.800
    Suzuki SX4 WRC '08..............1:47.323
    Subaru Impreza WRC 2008 ....1:47.206

    These are only Base Tunes for these cars and need fine tuning but were fun to do and will win Gold on the International B Toscana 600pp Dirt Trials...Cheers mate...:tup:

    It wasn't that long ago. Time flies..


    Nice work on the rally cars.


    On a side note.

    My fiancé is currently having a blast drifting a X-bow on Toscana. And just a few minutes ago she manhandled my Mazda LM55 VGT on Midfield and ended up on second place. Only thing different from my setup is that she used AT.

    Drifting score of 5k points on a full lap. Not too shabby me thinks.

    She just improved to 6,4k while i took out the trash.

    And another improvment made. 7,6k.

    @shaunm80 congrats on 200 pages.
    Looks like the STI tune is greatly universal for dirt tracking well done sir.

    More luck than skill but I will agree that it is a stroke of good fortune that it transfers well on to actual rally cars. There is hope yet for dirt tunes :)

    Well done to your fiancee. She obviously has skills!

    On a side note, I now have a drift Lambo which is going in COTM thread. Something different for everyone!

    Get her set up with her own account so she can fight with you online. Then we will see who wears the trousers in your household :)

    Hehehe. She's having a blast. I thinks she has picked up a few things from watching me going around on certain tracks.

    Oh yeah.. Hmm.. That one was a bit hairy to drive if my memory serves me correctly.

    Good one. I might actually do that once i get a wheel. I think she would cope better with that tbh.

    Drift Lambo you say...I see your drift Lambo and call! Will post mine later. Low angle high speed drift tune I made for the Lambo drift on R245 a while back.

    I don't know many women that wear dresses anymore :rolleyes::scared: especiallyif they are gamers.

    Oh well.. She just went for another drift session, this time on the white fluffy cold stuff commonly known as snow.

    Still in a X-bow. Full lap. Scored 8.3k on the first go.

    We should leave them in the hands of the drift expert (@LordJCS) and see what he can make of them both. Bear in mind, yes I am making excuses now.. that I just made this tune in about 5 minutes..) anyway. excuse over. well let the black top decide :)

    Also, just because it is COTM, I am going to make a GT3 version Lambo.. :) Fun for all you guys.

    @shaunm80 and @Otaliema

    Please refresh my memory on how the COTM testing works.. Can i pick a certain tuner or am i obligated to test all?

    I must be getting old. :nervous:

    You can test as little or as many as you wish. Its not like FITT testing where ALL need to be tested. Do what you feel like doing..

    Thanks.. Now i know. I might have some time to kill tomorrow. What better way to spend it on than some COTM testing and leaving feedback. My reviews seem to be popular for some reason. Can't figure out why?

    Ditto :lol:
    You're honest, fast and detailed, all are thing we tuners seldom get. Go look at the reviews of the cars in the database, most are good tune, or it was not good too *insert problem*
