who's the Daddy........
Love it. That noise is the BEST of any car and always will be.
Are these shapes still available, I would love to do a replica of that car
Couple of examples hidden in here @Race Altered
Fell across this one........
Nice find Alyn now them were the good old days of rallying
Love how quick they go through the gears,I wonder how much shorter the ratios are in a rally car compared to say a road going RA
Not much, if any. They still did 200 km/h at 6-7000 RPM in sixth. Remember a recording of a Danish driver in an Escort Cosworth (7 speed). I think he does not move the hand from the gear lever until in fifth, first through fourth is a continuous motion!
id love to know the proper ratios for a rally car and I suppose a lot of it comes down to the boost levels and low-mid range torque. they go a lot quicker than they should for having around 300bhp, they must have huge torque figures and run a serious amount of boost, plus lighter too I guess
