Sweden done. Lots of mistakes. Fun to drive though. I tried all the cars before jumping in. BMW: Light from the back, wheels spinning too much with no traction. Ford: Quite slow with acceleration, not enough RPMs, but easy to take corners. Renault: Most stable from those, Good traction, but lots of understeering. I chose BMW in the end and ohh boy how sweaty i was at the end, lots of work with the wheel. Suspension and Dampners a bit more into Firm, Differential bit more into Loose and break balance 1 click into the rear, because i have no clutch on my pedals to make it turn better.

Summary:

S1: Clean
S2: Stuck in the snowbank for 10 sec
S3: Clean
S4: Roll on straight, lost lots of time because visibility was basically zero, slow driving
S5: Spin at high speed, reverse needed. Lost about 5 sec.

Overall i was flying like crazy on the stages (at least it felt like it was maximum what i could do) except the stage where it was snowing. Lets see what others will do

Ohh damn you Skully, you beat me. How did you manage to drive so fast on the 4th stage? it seems that stage was my doom, i lost 20 sec for you there. yeah the roll took about 5-6 sec but i had basically zero visibility to drive there. Maybe my monitor settings are bad? I basically just saw like 2-3m from the hood/bonnet, so i just had to use the co-drive words for the track

I beat you on Track 2, 4 and 5. It was stage 4 I gained most time, about 14sec. So when starting stage 5 I was only 3sec behind. I had a clean run on all of them pretty much. Track 5 was hard to see, but I know the track anyway. So not soo bad. Possibly using a 40" screen helped me to see better? I felt right on the edge of my abilities the entire time, really had to work hard with the wheel. I could feel the burn in my arms. And still I only just won even though you had a few costly mistakes.

I had fun, but I didn't even try to push. I just concentrated on keeping the car on the road and drove like I had tachophobia.

Xpander... but i had basically zero visibility to drive there. Maybe my monitor settings are bad? I basically just saw like 2-3m from the hood/bonnet, so i just had to use the co-drive words for the track
Try turning off advanced fog. Although you might consider that cheating.

Thanks, i will try that next time. I don't think the fog is that intense in real life with snow. I never seen that intense fog when snowing at least

I think they're trying to simulate the way snowfall limits visibility, but it's not very realistic.
