Started the event earlier, ended up losing a wheel and close to a minute on the second stage. I just finished the rest. A smaller crash here and there, two big ones (somehow didn't cost me that much apparently) on the last stage, overall better than usual.

I did end up using a weird car setup with soft dampers, otherwise I can't make the tyres last past two minutes on these roads. I managed to keep the car surprisingly maneuverable by hardening the suspension and playing with the differentials instead. The jumps were interesting though. The Lancia wasn't built to fly.

Ohh boy, got my 144hz monitor back from RMA. What a joy to play again, everything is more responsive.
Had a pretty good run, didn't find a perfect setup though, had too many instabilities from the bumps which killed the car quite a bit also, but the last 4 stages were a bit better in terms of not killing the car that much.
Enjoyed the stages, really fast and had to hold the wheel quite a bit, hands totally tired after 2 long stages already.

summary

S1: lucky spin at high speed, engine stall, around 6 sec lost there
S2: Clean
S3: Clean
S4: Clean
S5: Trip to the fields, maybe 3 sec lost
S6: Clean


edit: and yeah @muell i couldn't get 2 minute cap. I didn't know that 2 of the short stages were the 3.40 zone, i thought all the short ones are around 3:10 or less. so thats where the 1 minute went :)

A minute is still really impressive. I guess Greece and Wales are going to be the really interesting events. Not sure what's going to happen in Monaco and Germany.

hehe, in Germany i will suck anyway, Monaco depends, every small mistake costs much because there caps aren't big :)

Greece and UK have been usually quite tight indeed.

See your few stupid mistakes pales into insignificance compared to mine! Braked to hard going into a hairpin on S1 and flew off the mountain, DNF and thats its for me no more Monaco!

FFS, 3 seconds… This is becoming annoying.

tuubi 28 Apr, 2018

Despite one crash, I did a really decent first stage. Then I proceeded to drive off the track right in the beginning of the second. The game doesn't show a DNF because I had a shameful Dirt Rally rage quit moment there.

So yeah, I won't be finishing Monaco either.
