It feels good, really good. While DR1 often felt like it was hard for the sake of being hard DR2.0 feels really well grounded in the physics. The way the momentum builds and interacts with the mass of the car to put you in the ditch feels amazing. You can really feel how the mass of the car and the weight transfer is…
This is a Peugeot 306 Maxi, a bonkers F2 class rally car powered by a naturally aspirated 2L 4 cylinder that gloriously screams to 11k rpm to make 300hp. Pictured is Francois Delecour driving one to 2nd place overall in the 1997 Tour de Course, only beat by Colin McRae. It’s awesome but that’s not the game we are…
Getting ready for Deluxe Edition access on Friday. EDIT: I forgot about Kinja, its DiRT Rally 2.0 downloading.
So now I’m shopping for BRZs I can’t afford yet. Again. This one seems pretty good to me:
Im OK with this idea.
I have a weird love for the Peugeot 306 Maxi. Something about it just hits all the right buttons for me and it certainly has a place in my dream garage.
The giant Clarkson head finally finds a purpose in tonight's Grand Tour episode.
This morning when he was 2nd AJ Almendinger was all for keeping the cars circulating to keep clearing water off the track. Now that he’s leading hes throwing a tamtrum over the weather and wants the race stopped NOW.
According to Google it's 54F in Daytona right now and they are bundled up in layers with gloves, hats, and hand warmers. At 54F I'm debating if I actually need anything more than a hoodie.
This is the current view over Penis Pond. There are 4 buildings in this photo.
I woke up and had to dig my car out of this mess. Then on my way to work I discovered that the funny noise my transmission has been making has evolved into a horrifying death growl. And now I just accidentally nuked my entire Ubuntu install by trying to uninstall Python like a dumbass.
The vocal talent here is crazy.
Smart enough to figure out that you own a 2004 Mini Cooper, not smart enough to know that the rear wiper is different between 2004 and 2005.
I have officially reached "can't see out the rear window" status.
I guess this is a thing.
Star Wars Republic Commando for the original Xbox. Probably my most played game for the system, now playable on Xbox One. Time to see how far I can get in one night.
Drove 10 miles out of my way to fill the Mini with some ethanol-free VP racing fuel. I was a bit disappointed to see that the 94 they had last winter has been replaced with 91 but we will see how the Mini likes it. Hopefully it will be happier with this than it has been on the winter blend 93 from the Shell station…
