    That's really old naturally aspirated engine. I don't know if it's useful. Hopefully Br21 can tell us which engine they used for R5 if it's again the EP6 or some other.

    FIA reject R5 paddleshift gearbox rule change


    Last week the FIA cancelled the proposed rule change allowing paddle gear shift systems, which teams have been busy preparing for the 2018 season.

    This was decided at the August meeting of the FIA WRC Commission held at Rally Germany.

    One of the teams concerned explained that this was all part of the FIA’s fight to keep R5 costs down, believing that costs cannot be maintained if the FIA allow more technology, while at the same time introducing new safety measures.

    It is believed that a group of the manufacturers involved in this issue had proposed with the FIA an increase in the costs of the 5%, after finding that actual production costs since the rules were originally drafted had risen in the region of 10% on the total car.

    With the recent announcement of the new Citroen C3 R5 and news that Volkswagen Motorsport is on schedule with their R5 rally car to be available in 2018, the issue of costs is becoming increasingly urgent.

    Well that was clever, leaving it so late after teams had spent time and money developing it.

    So what are the other changes to the R5 rules for 2018?

    An R5 is still very expensive to run if you compare it to group N

    That's natural because they are way faster.

    Yeh, I'd compare R5's more to 4WD Group A cars with WRC being the step above that. Although, we need a good cheaper R4 alternative as well.
