Woo, almost had a good Sweden event there!

Had to back up once or twice in the second stage, and in the last stage I had to do the last section and change with a wheel missing. Otherwise kept it to mostly spins that left me facing the right way.

Been meaning to ask why we can repair after every stage? Feels like we are skipping a interesting element of the game.
Good Luck everyone.

Good Luck everyone.

its because some people couldnt handle this
also we have to use career engineers then to make the repairs somewhat usable..but then the problem is that some might not have good engineers hired etc.

so its after every stage for those reasons. we wouldnt have so many finishers otherwise

@Xpander Ah cool that all makes sense.

Just finished Sweden in group A.
My first time using a steering wheel in our league. Finally felt I play at least as good, if not better with the wheel now.
I had 1 spin on stage 5, otherwise completely clean.

yeah, getting used to wheel is taking time, i was driving better with keyboard at first but once you are used, this is amazing experience. the feedback the wheel gives you after jumps or snowbanks is just amazing imo

I can't for the life of me figure out how to drive on a straight road in Sweden with my xbox controller. There was only one track on which I didn't spin the car. Drifting around all the corners is rather easy and real fun though.

Also, first time group a. Feels pretty much like the other modern cars.

I've never learned this either. The only way I can manage a clean run is if I drive extremely slowly and carefully, almost never flooring the accelerator (trigger). But I guess even a slow and careful run ends up faster than one where you keep spinning and reversing.

This time I only managed one or two clean stages. My poor Lancia spun and rolled several times, but luckily always ended up back on its wheels.

I'm driving with a gamepad as well, but my left foot just keeps looking for the clutch pedal every time my car loses grip... It's so frustrating. Don't know if I'd be any faster if I actually had pedals and a gear stick though.

Sweden done by me also. What a terrible event for me, lots of spins and crashes into snowbanks. Couldn't get the car setup right, constant fight with understeer. The stage where it was snowing was the worst, couldn't see anything, lots of mistakes and lost my rythm completely in that one, as well as all other stages after this.
Still managed to be second somehow with just 10 sec behind of Skully.

Will upload the video also

Finland Next!

@Xpander, Great video.
After watching. It appears I likely have my force feedback set to high still. As there is no way I could lift 1 hand to use hand brake in a lot of cases. I noticed you have a lot more mishaps than me, but you are driving a lot faster than I am. Which I guess levels it all out some in the end.
