@Xpander. I noticed you set your car suspension very firm compared to me. Yet it appears your car handles the jumps nicer. Might have to try that in finland. Also your very lucky. When I crash in same places I get flat tyres

firm is better because it doesn't want roll that much when i make some hard turns that go down hill a bit. but it also kills the car a lot more with the jumps like exhaust etc. i actually was super lucky with the tires this-time indeed. For example last time i got flat tire just with the jumps cause i set car too firm.

I tried a slightly softer setup than default to play it safe. I even saved it as I thought the car handled surprisingly well. Here's a shot:

Had a good run in Monaco. Only 1 little incident on track 3 or 4.
Back to using controller instead of wheel. Need to fiddle with settings more I think before I use it again. Still think I have ffb to high. It seems ok in some cars and not in others. Or maybe it's just me lol. But I feel more consistent with controller even if a little slower when comparing perfect runs.

DNF for me on the first stage end

i was flying, was on the best time course about 6.30 or something like that..

well one second gear corner, a bit over the snowbank and that was it ...

Monaco done. I had to do it in several sittings due to Christmas and job related stuff, and once my wife actually turned off the computer while I had it on pause. That happened in the beginning of the fourth stage, which forced me to redo the third stage as well. It doesn't count as cheating as the stage went slightly worse the second time around.

Will be hard to catch Skully with the points now DNF is really bad

Ohh how i suck on tarmac

S1: 2 spins, one with reverse needed
S2: clean
S3: crash into stones, spin
S4: crash into trees
S5: clean
S6: spin

lost most of the time on both long stages. yeah i cannot understand how skully drives so fast on tarmac, impossible for me, i slide a lot, loosing time with that and finding breaking points is where i struggle a lot.

One of my worst Germany runs in a long time, never got friendly with the car. I blame all the food of the last week

Horrible driving in the first stage, two instances of manslaughter in the later stages, ended up a bit behind this round. Bring on Greece and 2018!
