    Rally Vehicles

    Post up your favorite rally vehicals including pictures.

    In wake of Subaru's resent redesign of the WRX and STI I have become interested in other makes of rally designed vehicles. The new WRC ford focus is really good looking as well as having some promising performance. Also I have seen some wicked Peugeot's and Citroen's.

    I am always dwelling on which production cars are best suited to be potential rally vehicals. Like my WRX. I want to know for instance could you take a Ford Focus off the asembly line and turn it into a fire spiting beast like the WRX.

    This car is great looking and it's a two door. I don't know if Ford is making production AWD turbo'ed cars but they should start.

    This is one of my all time favorite rally cars. Although I have never seen anything like it in the states. Nor know if you can even get one.

    You could probably try to find/import an EDM drivetrain out of a Focus RC car and stick it under a reg Focus, but that would be $$$$.

    They do also have kits for the Focus that will convert it to RWD to accomodate a Mustang rear end, and a 4.6.
    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    Henri Toivonen and Markku Alen at the premier of the Lancia Delta S4. The more evolved Detlas used a different nose piece and larger spats and spoiler. If there are any tUneRZ reading (yo!) this car had two BOVs, not just one (mAd TiTe!) since both the Volumex and the regular turbo needed pressure relief. There were also more intercoolers and piping on the car than a diesel big rig truck.

    I still remember the noises those made. Vroom! I saw old film footage from an RAC Rally when Thatcher was young, and Ari Vatanen had blown up the differential (big surprise there...). They (meaning the works Ford team!) didn't have a spare! The flagged down a passing 3.0L Cortina (remember?) and sweet-talked the guy into letting them remove the diff from his car and use it in Vatanen's Escort; they promised the Cortina guy and his wife a new diff from the local Ford dealer. Good times.

    Ultra-rare, 2-event lifespan Citroen BX 4TC. Only 1 turbo used initially, and talk of a twin-turbo version began with questions about redundancy of Citroen's rally projects since Peugeot was already winning titles and they're the same company (just like today...) and ended with questions about where the hell the car went, since nobody saw it compete again...

    It's not exactly a rally car but it was a prototype for what would have been a group B car.
