@WoodyLizard wrote:Finland was almost as bad as Monte Carlo for me. At least I finished, that’s all I’m saying right now as bit annoyed with my ability to control this car. In all honesty not enjoying as much as the less powerful and more forgiving cars we drove in season 3.

Need to find some motivation to continue in this season unfortunately. Not normally a quitter but this game is a love hate relationship with me.

Hey man. I’m really sorry you are feeling this way. I quite enjoyed Monte but I’m a bit of a fanboy for it. Finland? In the Subaru Canonball sti? Yeah it’s a car breaker for sure. The R4s are heavy cars that slam on landing and don’t slow down too well over the bumps. I’m expecting a dnf tonight if I’m honest because I’m too much of a throttle mashing beast to slow down accordingly every time the co driver quietly mentions ‘bump’ just before a 5 right on an incline! It’s a tough event but I guess that’s part of the challenge. Finland is easy to be fast at, but it’s very hard to be very fast at.... it’s the praying mantis of Rally events.

I hope you can keep the proverbial chin up and keep motoring!

This time I finished the rally. The pace was good but a few crashes costs me a lot of time. Fingers crossed for the next round!

Struggling to get this done this week. I managed to squeeze in the first two stages during a work break the other morning but have been pretty tied up the rest of the week. I will try my best to get the rest done tonight when I finish work although based on those first two stages I may not survive long anyway Embarassed

First stage was reasonable although still left me at the back of the pack but no alarms or mistakes so I approached the Second stage feeling confident and I was actually going ok although my pace was nothing to write home about I was managing the stage pretty well and the car was healthy as I passed the three-quarter mark but then I overdid it around one corner and ended up in a barrell roll that left the car in a bit of a mess. The last quarter of the stage was very tough from then on and several more hits meant I crossed the line looking like I had just emerged from a battle zone lol.

What a disaster rally! I'm starting to like the Impreza though even if sometime it feels like driving a barge.

I'm looking ahead to the remaining rounds now I have a wheel & pedals :-)

yeah the impreza is definitely better in some locations over others with the default tune, it was not great in Finland with all the jumps making the car bottom out but should be good for the rest of the more smooth rallies. Great to hear you got a wheel! Enjoy!

I think I hot the same penalty after a clean stage. Wrecked the car in first two stages but held on. Engine was smoking starting every round. Deffo getting quicker. Enjoyed it and looking forward to getting the next stages done in Event 3. Good stuff. Cool

Before you start the Power Stage, press XBox Button. This will bring up Screen Shot(Y) and Recording Options(2 little boxes). Press "Recording Options", Choose "Record Now, Up to 10 min.". Start your stage. When done, press the XBox Button, and (X), to stop recording. Once GameClip has uploaded to XBox Live, you can share it to the XBox Club.

I’m with Ronnie here. I’ve been looking all around the posts and still can’t figure out which stage is the power stage.

Stage 5 each round is the power stage.

Right then! Round 2 done... well done to everyone who managed to grind that monster out.... In collating the power stage clips there were so many of us who clipped a rock on the inside and got fired in to the trees on the outside... Nasty nasty Finland!
Anyways the provisional standings are up.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO POST YOUR POWER STAGE CLIPS TO THE XBOX CLUBS WITHIN 24 HOURS OF RALLY END!

On to Germany... Where we take everything we have learned about the flying breezeblock and, well, forget it all!

Best of luck on the sticky stuff chaps!
