Dirt Rally

by Great Joe

Part 9: R4

So Dirt Rally skips over Group N in favour of the R4 class. The only car not represented is the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX, which would be kinda redundant anyway. As a modern introduction to rallying, the R4 cars do a pretty decent job of being slow and not oversteering unless your steering absolutely demands they do. They're only minimally modified from the street versions, have strict restrictions on engine displacement and so on. The Lancer Evo doesn't respond well to the handbrake except in very particular circumstance, so you're better off using copious amounts of left-foot braking.
