At the end of each race weekend in RaceDepartment’s V8 Stock Car Championship, I upload the actual setup I used during the race at the bottom of my race recap posts to give the slower guys some sort of guidance – car setups can be hard if you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing, and sometimes the default setups are intentionally designed to be slow and steady – not what you want if you’re trying to better yourself as a driver and get quicker.
I guess we’ll extend this to DiRT Rally.
The leaderboard above is for the Pant Mawr stage in DiRT Rally, for the Group B 4WD class, otherwise known as the fastest, deadliest rally cars ever created. And we here at PretendRaceCars.net currently have the world record.
This setup was developed primarily by an ASA/ARCA/Wescar Late Model driver, and made even quicker by throwing the same camber and toe values I use in my Walk Racing Chevy Sonic. Somehow, this worked, and it’s blazing fast. Gears are intentionally lengthened to reduce time spent shifting (treat 2nd and 3rd gear as “low” and “high” as if you’re playing Pole Position). You’ll also need to upgrade your Group B Delta S4 through career mode to access these setup options – hopefully something that will be eradicated in an upcoming update. While the setup is developed for the insane back roads of Wales and Greece, taking it to Monte Carlo is as simple as dropping the ride height as low as it can go both up front and in the rear.
