    Toyota's biggest mechanical failures seem to come from trees and bridges...

    Meeke in Monte on day 2 was supposedly ignition-related. Fixed by changing ECU I think, cost him 4-5 mins.

    Also forgot about all the powersteering issues for Hyundai. In Mexico they first had problems with overheating engine (like everyone except Citroen), then on the superspecial all cars stopped because of fuel-injection related issues.

    The thread starter should just edit his first post adding the stuff up.

    Does anyone know the mechanical construction of the centre diff? By the comments from Ogier the Ford is rear wheel drive without hydraulic pressure.

    https://www.ewrc-results.com/driver_...-de-Corse-2017

    SS8 Novella 2: "At the end of SS7 we lost hydraulic pressure. The target was to finish the day and be back at the service. We don't have any diff, no gear shifting and we're a proper rear-wheel-drive car. It behaved quite strangely!"
    On SS9 Antisanti – Poggio di Nazza he had electrical problem and the centre diff was locked which mean he had hydraulic pressure. Looks like the electric control system was an on/off system on SS8 and SS9.

    There was talking about spare cars in another topic (Mikkelsen).

    How many cars, bodyshells, engines etz are teams allowed to use during one season in WRC? Without being punished that is.
