    This is a Volvo 240 =)

    But he is a impressing driver, this is a onboard with a crazy pace with VOC 940 ( Volvo std-class)

    Ta mig i häckan de va bättre än 99% av all i Nord Amerika att åka bil.

    Och i en VOC bil!

    Damn forum software only let me "like" one time.

    PS showed that clip to a young soon to be rally guy and he was jumping up and down---re recognize the intrumentbredan as 940 but refused to belive it was VOC bil...
    he was "No way! Its too fast! too sideways!"

    Is it time for a modern Volvo rally car, if they make rally cars that sound like this?

    For your knowledge Swedish Touring car championship is driven with siloutte cars and common V6 engines. Only outer bodyshell is a casting of ordinary S60 model or other brands...

    Why when even the 240 does so well? Do you know the name Jaska Nuorala? Finnish F-Cup Champion 2 years running...
    It is a safe bet that F-cup is the best 2wd class in the world, better than Swedish Grupp H...2 years in a row he beats everybody..
    Compare SS times and it is shocking what his overall times are..
    Plug his name into a Youtube search sit back and relax
    The car may be old----but it is good and a good car that is easy to drive---and costing a fraction of what modern cars cost is a good thing.

    Any plans to make R2 or R3 from the new Fabia, or either factory or CZ tuners?

    So, we have had the R-Classes around for a few years.
    Status seems to be the following.

    R1: Not a big success, need overhaul
    R2: Success. Has been healthy series in many national, regional and at world champ levels. Have had engine mod from 1600 NA to 1200 Turbo.
    R3: Is a dying class. Need overhaul.
    R4: First real R4 car kit coming in 2018.
    R5: Huge success, 600 cars sold.

    So basically we have R2 and R5 that have made it. R3 was a success, but has died out in most series.

    I would like R1 to get a revamp, as a class for 15 year old youngsters, and others driving for fun, and want a modern car.

    Come on. All top WRC class will be expensive. If R5 at top, R5 would cost more twice than now

    Not a chance, unless the R5 is driven on the limit and you find a good spot it's not that great.
