    No wonder these cars where banned!! Wpv they are great!
    I heard Juha Kankkunen one said in an interview (he was driving the Huyndai Accent WRC, and had just sat the best time!): Wr're missing a little short on torque! Back in the eightees that wasn't a problem. Torwue was the only thing we had too much of! <!-- Signature -->

    YEa, it is a shame it was banned like the rs2000 which was banned because it kill people in a crash,<!-- Signature -->
     
  6. Re: This Car is Awesome

    another example of why 80s cars are better than those of the cars today.
    newer version comes short, however still great... nothing close to this.
    a guess the saying is true...
    nothing can be as good as the original. (well at least in this case)

    they shouldnt ban a car just because it killed someone. this sport isnt very spectator friendly and its a risk to go to one no matter what.<!-- Signature -->

    They had to ban Group B in the end for everyone’s safety. The Lancia that crashed killing its driver and co-driver were flash fried. When the fire fuelled by the red-hot supercharger and turbo was finally out the only thing left was a very charred space frame.

    I still feel that today’s Group A cars are boring in comparison. The FIA should have taken it down the route of unlimited HP without a Turbo such as the MG Metro 6R4. Or continued with Group S that was due in 1988 where cars were limited to 300BHP as they are now in the modern WRC, but only required to make 10 cars.

    If I'm not mistaken, this car has LESS torque than for example the 206 WRC!!

    this car is awesome.....i love all peugeots<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Re: This Car is Awesome

    It's a shame they don't import any or very many peugeots into the US... they might import them, but I don't think i've ever seen one, it would be nice to have another option besides the subaru for a rally-type car.<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. Re: This Car is Awesome

    PederN, I think he said that during a hill climbing part of the Argentine rally, the "Group B car had no problem here" or something
    similar...

  22. Re: This Car is Awesome

    Rally Portugal 1986, Joaquim Santos' RS200 slid off the road and into the crowd killing 3 and injuring another 30, as a result of trying to avoid spectators to close to the road. (Timo Salonen, in his 205 T16 E2 had earlier hit, but not killed, a camerman).

    Two rallies later in Corsica, Toivonen and Cresta have their fatal accident.

    RIP Group B. :(
