  4. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    I love the Impreza with all my heart, but I've been watching the rallies and they're not doing so well. I think Peugeot is going to take top honors in the constructor's championship, and maybe drivers too, but Ford looks really good. The lancer's haven't really made a dent at all. The Skoda Octavias and Citroen Xsaras look better.<!-- Signature -->
     
  5. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    I really hate to see the lancer losing. I think ford or peugeot will take the championship.<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    After the new lancer came out, it hasn't do sh*t and is even worst the the Impreza, but i think the Focus will have a chance this year and beside the Focus big brother Escort was a world rally chimpion b4 so Ford have some skills of making rally cars.
     
  7. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    I dont think for has a chance at the manufatcures title, they need to develope their tarmac car first. As far as Mcrea goes, I think he will be in the mix but I doubt he will win the pilot title. My call is that Gronholm will take the big prize home with 2:Burns and 3:Mcrea on his heels. we shall see.g<!-- Signature -->

  10. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    I really want Makinen to winin the subaru. But...I hate to say this...I think the Focus of Mcrae will win. Nothing against Mcrae its just i can't stand the focus.

  12. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    Even though i am a Subaru fan, i think that Peugeot will take the constructors championship, and i hope that T.Makkinnen will take the driver's championship<!-- Signature -->

    if the impreza was a bit shorter. . . . it would win consistantly . . . i think they need a little hatch-back coupe version of the wrx. . . <!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    with the from peugeot has been showing over the past few rallies they seem to be sure winners either marcus gronholm or richard burns is sure to walk away with the wrc title. i wish makkinen wins though.<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    I think that this Focus will take Colin to victory. Its only 2700 lbs and its got the best transmission, best suspension, and the best engine for this kind of racing.<!-- Signature -->
     
  17. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    I think the Lancer doesn't even stand a chance this year...even Tommi said the VII was "undriveable." The Impreza is doing OK; we'll see how they do once more of the points can be won on gravel. Peugeot has the best drivers and the best machine, with the exception of Ford. They both have excellent drivers and their cars are light and powerful, but they don't have the refinement of their competitors. I'd say Peugeot will win this year, but Colin might be able to pull it off.

    Does Cosworth still make the Ford WRC engines?<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    i think you are all overlooking the best team in the WRC, Hyundai. there is no way that you can leave them out of a comparison like this. the other teams shouldn't even compete, because there is no way to beat the Hyundai.

    yea, right, like that's true. for real though, i gotta say the peugeot's gonna runaway with it this year, they've been too dominate thusfar and i don't think anyone can match them.<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    the pugeot and gronholm are for sure going to win this year. The focus and McCrae are doing a great job, but pugeot has refined their program and have the most experience. I give it to McCrae and the focus next year. I read some reply that said that they hyundai is the best car. HAH!. hyundai and skoda havent put up any real numbers yet this year. Look at the rally of cyprus that happened the weekend of 4/20. Collin flipped his focus making it basically a euro mini, and still had the 5th fastest time on the stage. This is a testiment to the power of the ford motor company. Ive driven cars from all 3 major manufacturers and many of their subsidaries, and id have to say that ford makes the toughest cars around. I flipped a 94 bronco 4 3/4 times going 90+ mph and the thing held up just fine.
     
  20. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    i think you mean 90km/h because these cars if you flip it at 90miles won't even hold up to good.
    but trully so far i have seen these cars are much tougher built than any other competition car(good reasons).
    have to go with peugeot and gronholm for the driver and peugeot for cars unless the luck ford has been having comes down on them to.
     
  21. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    what really annoys me is when ppl say that the ford focus WRC is an american car...its NOT

    its designed and built in england, with no help whatsoever from detroit, driven by europeans, on european stages (except the odd few far away)

    american cars have V8s, remember? (good ones do anyway)

    Ford is not a bad car on gravel and snow. but to say that Mcrea is doin a good job is just not right. He lost Cyprus for ford. he had a huge lead, and rolled two seperate times. He drives like a madman, which is great for stage times, but real bad for consistancy.

    If peugeot does not win both the Manufactures and Drivers(Gronholm, or Burns) it will be a major upset. They have the best drivers in the best car.<!-- Signature -->
     
  23. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot

    Well, the Lancers aren't doin much at all. Imprezas are nice but just aren't making the big numbers..I'd have to go with the Focus as the best rally car but they're facing big competition from the Peugeots. I think next year will be Mcrae and Fords year. I would kill to have one of these!!!
     
  24. Re: Focus VS Lancer VS Impreza VS Peugeot
