    Well, they weren't cheating. Gronholm is reportedly furious, I don't think he wanted the 'help' he was being given.

    And the flywheel was an honest mistake and is being recorded as such. The authorities are convinced this wasn't a deliberate attempt at cheating.

    Actually, I'm glad this has happened. It shows the system works, and it will surely be a deterrent to anyone who thinks about cheating. You will get caught (just ask Toyota).

    Things are looking up for Ford and Sainz, even McRae's points tally is starting to look good. Solberg is now just one point behind Makinen. Hopefully things will start to get interesting now. <IMG SRC="">

    From what I hear, it was only 20g underweight, something like less than 1% of the total weight of the flywheel. I'd hardly call that an advantage (assuming it was an attempt at cheating). The fact that Burns was well off Marcus and Tommi is proof enough that it wasn't an advantage.

    The flywheel in question was meant for testing purposes only and somehow wound up on Burns' car. I don't think it was cheating anymore than when Mitsui accidently put a non-homologated turbo part on his car in Rally Australia in 2000.

    But enough about Argentina already. The Acropolis is shaping up to be one hell of a race! :D

    I know this is totally unrelated to the matters here. But I thought I could take some of the people's advices here. I have a friend who has a Pug 405 with the carb 1600 engine (petrol), manual 5 speed box. The car has 200 000+ kms on the dial and he recently replaced the rings. But since then when the engine is idling, it sounds exactly like a diesel. We cannot find what the problem is. Could anyone help us out?????
