I was first on the road this morning, my aim is to actually finish the event so my pace is reasonably steady.

I`m currently stopped for lunch silent

Now time to tackle the last 4 stages . . .

I have an incredibly difficult time keeping the car straight at high speed in the snow. Anyone have any special suspension settings they use in Sweden to help? Softer/harder?

I am using a controller. I use an elite and the only difference from default is I use the longest thumb sticks and I have shift up/down mapped to the two right hand paddles. E-brake is mapped to A button.

I do believe I turned sensitivity down a bit. I can let you know what I have it set at when I get home this afternoon if you want. I don't think I messed with dead zones at all. I know I reduced camera shake a lot since I play in 3rd person.

Fair play to the top boys, Sweden is horrendous at the best of times without being in group b cars accompanied with horrendous weather

I've got 4 stages done so far. Bringing up a strong last place. I've done more snow bank induced K turns than I'd like to share. Props to all you fast guys who are on a whole different level. I'd love to see some of the fast power stage runs shared for this week, it's a great stage!

wow, well I had a decent lead going and completely threw it out the window on stage 6 by getting stuck in a snowbank and having to recover the car. My driving got worse as the rally went on and I really felt I couldn't trust the car as much by the end after understeering into way too many snowbanks, so I never made back all the time lost in stage 6 Sad . Disappointed not to have held on to the win here as I likely won't get a better shot in the MG this season.
On the other hand, another very good consistent drive from Iceman @Laitsu sees him in the provisional lead of Rally Sweden. Just under 3 Days to go now!

I hit the snowbank almost every stage and turn over. Power stage was clean run.

I think that Peugeot is so much faster than Metro on straight line. That give me big advantage. Yeah that power stage time was so close!!!!
