    I have just checked out the results of Rally Grimstad. Grøndal and his new Fiesta finished in the second position, 49 seconds behind Veiby. Veiby won 7 out of 8 stages, Grøndal managed to win 1 stage only.

    Final results:

    Is Grondal comparable to Veiby on tarmac though?

    Mads in Germany tried something new. He went back to a trick he used when he was "youth-rallying in sweden in a Volvo 740.

    Since he do not have brake balance adjustment in the C3 R5, he put on close to worn out brake pads at the front, since the car braked way to much on the fornt axle, to get closer to the balance front/rear he was looking for. Smart thinking!

    Does any of the R5s come with adjustable brake balance. or is it not allowed in R5?

    Br21 can for sure tell us exactly but Pavel Dresler told me that Fabia also has no brake balance regulation. Likely not allowed by the rules. Otherwise I don't know the reason.

    this is not something new or strange.Even at track day cars its something common.
    at my evo 8 i use carbotech xp 10 at front,and carbotech xp8 at rear.
    Xp10 have a higher friction than xp8

    Pieter Tsjoen Racing received their 2 Fabia R5 Evo. He will debut it next weekend in the Omloop van Vlaanderen.

    The one on the right side isn't Evo.
