    As much as you need to adress your weaknesses you need to develop your strong properties becuase those are what brought you where you are. Moreover everything is connected in one system. The fact things worked reliably before doesn't mean they would continue to work same way after you change half of the system.

    A stronger rear axle, better rear brake cooling and better engine lubrication are all one connected system ?

    better reliability doesnt mean that was a weak car.
    better reliability maybe means longer service intervals,or longer life of some parts

    Yes, of course. The car is the system.

    You might not believe but one of the biggest contributors to reliability issues is vibrations and resonances. Those could be especially tricky because basically everything in the car (including the crew weight) has an impact on them and whatever you change might surpise you in the long term. Even with the most modern simulations the only way to avoid issues with them is testing, testing and another testing.

    Also as dimviii said, better reliability could mean also longer service intervals. Everyone wants his parts to last longer, that applies especially for the private customers.

    David Salanon bought CitroŽn C3 Rally2 ex Crugnola to contest national and 2nd division rallies in France. Will do some rallies and test with TM Competition with M-Sport Ford Fiesta Rally2 too.

    Running in conditions which varied from dry asphalt through rain, snow and ice, Breen found the car an improvement across the board on its predecessor, the i20 R5.

    “The feeling is very, very good from the car,” said Breen. “It’s predictable and consistent when it comes to the roll centre and the transition of grip and weight in the corner. Being a new car, there’s been the freedom to work on the geometry and that’s made a difference.

    If I was Adamo I would have shipped one of the new Rally2 i20s, along with a trailer of spares and a tech or two to "The Solbergs" for a Hackathon in Sweden. Let them play with it for a month!
    They are good testers and will give very good feedback to the Rally2 team in Germany!
