    Interesting reading.
    Front ARB won't help much if at all. I'm not 100% sure about MR cars, but if suspension geometry is similar to N5 then front ARB won't work there, especially on not very smooth gravel. N5 is quite similar to R5 Fiesta where also front ARB is not working.
    I don't know the MR gear ratios, but that might be the case. Also it's not only about the ratios, lack of grip on lower gears is much related to diffs, also active diff if MR use that (as N5 does).
    And difference between base Skoda and evo version is not that big for average driver, so it's clever decision to buy cheaper car and do more mileage instead.

    One of my friends was talking with Javier Castro (the one who built the R4 cars here), and he said that the difference between the R4, R5 and MR is that the MR have a longer suspension travel that complicate the setup, and that the ARB could help to give the dampers/springs to have more freedom to be setup.

    About diffs, I still have to get more information to know what kind of LSD the MR uses, and if there is some freedom to improve them.

    maybe easier then to limit MR suspension travel? I have quite much experience with all of those (not with MR but N5) and at least in N5 case it's more complex issue, as whole suspension design is more simple and less efficient.
    Diffs for sure are much worse than in R4/R5 (those are same ones actually), in N5 case active center diff helps in some situations, but in some is not an advantage.
