Most "difficult" things were for example brake discs bolted directly to wheel hubs, without use of bells (and all 4 wheels rotating when you turn only one, so changing all 4 discs same time was some kind of challenge - one false move and finger broken. Also driveshafts without any bolts, joints with splines etc. Open joints on both sides, with grease all over the place and many, many circlips, seger clips, etc.
    Thanks, interesting!

    Is this the new GP Week, or has the rally Grand Old Man Journalist gone over to this one?

    Sorry to revive such an old and dust-covered thread but I do not want to start new one just for this little but interesting thing...

    Tomasz Czopik in an advertisement on rallycarsforsale.net posted a dyno chart of his Fabia S2000. It is very low resolution but it's possible to see that the engine power is roughly 215 kW, i.e. 292,5 Hp @ 8000 rpm and the torque is roughly 270 Nm @ 6800 rpm. There are two torque peaks, one @ 5000 and one @ 6800 rpm. That correponds with an old graph from 2010 I saw years a go (without numbers). Particularly interesting is also the fact the engine is tuned by Jaroslav Vančík, Czech motoring engineer who prepared engines for example for Fabias S2000 of Kresta Racing (Kresta, Tarabus etc.).



    Link to the advertisement: http://rallycarsforsale.net/ads/skod...l-or-exchange/

    Now somebody may come and say that Proton was claiming in 2011 they had over 300 Hp. On the other hand Škoda kept claiming 270 Hp in their official tables. I call BS both. For me this graph looks somewhat believable considering S2000 performance (actually it's nearly same with a graph I sketched for myself in excel in 2013; my mistake is 2,5 Hp and 2 Nm, lol).
