No idea how to tackle this setup-wise. I'm fast and competitive but my setup knowledge is basic to non-existent so this is very very helpful. Next month we will detail how to make those adjustments. This also involves race strategies such as the best tyres to match the time of day and conditions. Dry, Slick Conditions As the track dries out further and the surface becomes dry and slick, drastic measures must be taken. These are definitely necessary, as the game now also features a new weather modelling system where changes in the weather affect the relative level of grip and require players to take a more nuanced approach to driving. Suspension Damping Bump Increasing the absorption of the dampers will make the vehicle feel more rigid whilst decreasing this value will make the vehicle feel softer.
Vehicle classes recommendation is not complete but this is officially version 1. Ride Height- The default setting is almost always too high. The clutch works wonderfully in the game and shifting is extremely satisfying. I always thought a bumpy and rough terrain like this requires an overall soft suspension. Also, before you start your proper ride, test the manipulation's effects on the shakedown. Closing Comments: Dirt Rally 2.
It is the full version of the game. Recall the aero discussion about keeping the nose close to the ground to keep the downforce in effect. Definitely good to mention something about weight distribution for the brake bias section. And if you screw up your ratios and shift points the car won't even work properly. . Turning around corners feels smooth, but based on how much speed and momentum you have, it could easily create oversteer especially in more powerful cars. There is so little information out there for this stuff and it's great to find someone like yourself who's willing to take the time to make these for us to use.
Other than that I think your channel could be of great service to the community, once you have setups for all of the cars in there. However, if you are on low speed tarmac with a lot of turns, you need to set the driving lock lower because both wheels will be connected to the ground and they need to spin more independently. At the rear, a touch of toe-in can help tame an oversteering car. Replays are truly a marvel despite some visual issues hurting the immersion. Mentioning that my setup are capable of a top 10 time is purely to stand out against the rest as otherwise its just another setup for people to skim over. In loose medium-heavy gravel you want some not a lot of braking lock. Codies in-game setup description of adjustment is fairly bang on.
Doing so makes the front end too soft and the car's steering and reaction will be unpredictable. I usually leave this where it is. Limited Slip Diffs Adjustments to the limited slip differentials will dramatically affect the vehicle's handling characteristics. Think of it like this: Damper 1 is always working and damper 2 overrides it when it comes into play, based on the fps rule. If you find you are braking too late and constantly running into the wall you might consider bumping up the stopping power by one notch. The torque bias is very important. This is a highly complex subject and best left to experts such as Professor C.
Once you feel you have the car under control try experimenting with some stronger settings to see if it improves your times. I am often in the top 5-20% of daily times even using a controller. If you are looking for a good starting point, the middle position is probably best. For example, for Argentina in Skoda R5 you make both fast bump and springs firm, while having slow bump set to soft.

I played a majority of this review with a Logitech G29 steering wheel setup along with the manual stick shift that Logitech offers.
You are not permitted to copy any image, text or info from this page. If you are dealing with smooth or hard terrain like tarmac or cement and even smooth gravel , you would need to weigh other factors like the stage layout and what speed you will be taking turns. You can download it from Ryder25's website. Really this setting and suspension stiffness go hand-in-hand. First, I am writing on a level that anyone can use and understand.
If you lock the front completely the car will grossly understeer and be completely unmanageable. Brakes Brake Bias Setting the brake balance toward the front of the vehicle will give the vehicle a tendency to understeer, however, it will help the vehicle slow down faster on tarmac surfaces when braking in a straight line. This is where it is critical to understand what the vehicle will encounter during the stage or location. By increasing the strength of the differential under acceleration, the traction will be increased when exiting corners. The ones we spoke with were in agreement that times have definitely changed. I am glad that you found a setup that works for you. The weather also affects visibility in stages.
This makes them much more consistent and far less subjective, as a result they are a much better fit for the broad spectrum of rally cars that you will be able to drive on our stages. If you want to jump in and be faster in 30 seconds, I will show you how to do that. My first attempt was not very good. This sounds bad, but is actually good for rally racing! Adjusting them on their own producing an effect similar to that of adjusting suspension stiffness, but where they're really effective is in tweaking the car's behaviour in transitions: turning into the corner and coming out. The plan is to tune every car in the game for every location and have them all capable of a top 10 time.
Also this class is being really boring and having something interesting to read is just perfect. And the setup isn't as important as you might think. They have already experimented with different spindles and other adjustments to find the best configuration. The idea is to help the tire produce the maximum allowable grip by making appropriate changes to the tread pattern by cutting siping or grooving. In many of our articles on various aspects of chassis setup, we try to include both sides of the coin-dirt and asphalt.
