Hell yeah! The public lobbies for Rally are great and I have a blast in single player as well, mainly rally, but also rally x and some of the other racing modes. I'd be shocked if you didn't love it, it's a great balance with Forza 4.

FWIW, I'm playing F1 and Dirt 3 on Xbox 360, not PS3 or PC. Sucks you guys have problems with your games; none here. The FFB is absurdly high in Dirt 3 by default, though, and that needed to be turned down to 30% or so.

My only legit gripe is the courses aren't longer and that there's no clutch for the 360 version. Driving a stick with a clutch in a rally car probably isn't the best idea, though, in the first place.

Yes you do. Then you can race with us.

When I can drag myself away from Forza 4 or work long enough to get to the shop, I will.

Also, the mod funding/money earning aspect is a lot easier so you don't have to race an insane amount of races to build up a good stock of cars. Once you reach affinity level 4 with that manufacturer, mods are free. You also get fat bonuses with each new driver level and affinity level you achieve.

True. The one thing I don't understand is why they removed endurance races, that really sucks. You can do 6 laps at a time in the world championships, but that's still not much more than a 10 minute race. If you want to set something specific up, you have to do it in multiplayer. I thought about setting up a 50 lap LeMans one weekend, but then I sobered up.

The luck of enduros also sucks in that I can't have a hired driver earn me money in them while I am off doing something else.

Here's a great example of how CM screwed up F1. Invisible walls during races. Check out the videos on the 2nd page.
