    Winter Mod - Discussion

    The first weeks will be chaos as people learn to adapt to the new conditions, once those weeks are up it will be fine. In mid January, everything will be normal, but people won't be driving as fast due to the slippery roads. This is how real winter goes too, at first it's chaos of people on summer tyres getting stuck, but eventually everything goes back to normal as people adapt to the winter.

    The physics does need some work, it should be slippery, but maybe not that slippery.

    It's almost as if that's the joke. (Also one of the cars that spun was an admin.)

    When the Eurobeat kicks in.

    Just one of the winter mod's many pros.

    When you decide to go through "D-C Road"

    The C-D route is huge fun! Especially in the snow. Driving at 80-100km/h while having to avoid some overtaking morons and not spin out is always fun.
  7. The Skoda is being updated, I'm wondering when that's released.

    Just a poll about driving styles.

    I'd shift sequentially even with the DSG, right now though the gearbox is as cumbersome as it gets. You pull the lever and then the gearbox decides "Time to make a cake, go to the shop, talk to some friends, and oh yes, I'll change gear too." The 1.8 TSI is also rather pathetic, the accelerator pedal isn't actually an accelerator, more a noise setting, more throttle, more noise. The 2.0 TDI is better, but I can't stand the noise. It sounds like it was fueled with sandpaper, I drive the 1.8 TSI. Hopefully there'll be DSG farts. https://youtu.be/_LnHb2FKmnM

    The Skoda update should help. The proposed DSG gearboxes and more powerful 2.0TSI (EA888) engines should make overtaking easier, and the better brakes will make them not crash into the back of every traffic jam.

    Only 2 people drive Skodas?

    Just a poll about driving styles.

    I follow the car speed limit so get passed alot by morons, sometimes when I can see an overtake could be dangerous, I move into the left lane and block it to stop the other vehicle from sideswiping me when they see the oncoming traffic. (usually a truck, I've noticed that cars don't often do this). I'd rather I sideswipe them than they sideswipe me, it seems that the rear corners of every car and truck are indestructible.

    I have an agressive driving style but follow speed limits, I drive a Skoda.

    Fill in the poll as the result could be interesting.

    What do you think about the car drivers on C-D?

    I am a Skoda driver, and I usually pick up quite a bit of speed, but stay within the limit, not like the video there, also, change gear more often. You don't need to slow down to 3km/h at every corner if your car has the grip. Drive at the speed limit, not (much) slower, not faster. On the German Autobahn, I drive at 150km/h, this is because it is safe to do so on roads that can accommodate 150km/h. Another important thing to do is to keep your driving smooth, the video shows the Skoda taking such strange lines (i.e exiting the corners on the inside rather than the outside.) Keeping smooth lines increases safety and performance.
