I think for me, what I really enjoy about dirt compared to tiremat is just the fact that there’s so many different ways to get to a corner and there’s so many different attraction level. It just makes it a more dynamic surface to race on because there’s different ways to break and power to the corner and exit to the corner. It just gives you more of a variety of what it is to play a game and that’s what I really enjoy.
Well some of the stages in there to have mixers such as the battersid stayed where you jump in and out of the building itself and once you get of there some tire matt areas and there’s some dirt areas and there’s jumps and you’re really going to notice the ground and the dirt alone because the attraction very supporting the surface.
So there’s areas where the car would have a much better grip and along some of the tire mat areas and then also there’s somewhere there’s where the car will just slide once. I think that’s amazing and that’s one of some stages that we have here in America where you know you are on a mix of tire mat and then the changes over the dirt and we have to be able to identify those areas obviously with your eyes and just regarding style according to style according to the surface or your eye same thing there.
There’s always a fine balance between too much stirring and too much gas and too much brake and really to get the best time on some of the courses, you really have to commit and try as hard as you can and occasionally that will pay you of the road. But that’s part of the fun and part of the challenges really figuring out the sensitivity of the controller, the sensitivity of the car, how much feedback really get from a car, the way that it moves on each surface and the more you can really accelerate to get the most speed down the stage.
So sitting here, actually playing my own car on the screen, I’m really surprised and how well and how dynamic the set up of the car is inside the game and how well it performs really like my real rally car.
