    Superb - I'm one of the blurred shapes in the background at about 5:32 getting sprayed by Mikkelsen....

    After watching this:

    https://youtu.be/NTRVY5lNwog?t=158 (should start at 2:40)

    I remembered the talks about Toyota setup and tried to find same places for more cars (which somehow wasn't easy). On the places I saw the Toyota's seem to nosedive a bit more under braking than others, not much but you can see the difference, something like 5-10cms.

    Here it's easiest to see:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ziI...ature=youtu.be
    0:20 Latvala with 3 loud touches, specially the first one is all the way to the sumpguard
    6:20 Suninen never touches
    6:50 Mikkelsen 1 touch

    Here the differences are much smaller, but still looks like there is some:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGjx...ature=youtu.be
    0:15 Mikkelsen
    2:07 Suninen
    3:30 Toyota (cant see number)
    4:40 Lappi (I think)

    I also remember seeing photos from where Toyota is scraping with splitter under braking after a straight. Sure different drivers don't brake exactly the same, but it's not like other cars are braking the radiators/front suspension under braking either. (Toyota now had related issues in GB, Portugal (Tanak and Latvala) and Argentina (Latvala))

    Could be rideheight by itself, setup or suspension design or a combination... or nothing, but then again the broken cars are real.

    Softer suspension=more grip in low grip situations.
    Maybe toyota must redisign their front suspension geometry also to prevent so much nosedive.

    Look at 2:45... Why people are so willing to die? I thought we all wanted to avoid that...

    Was a great event, really enjoyed the stages and the route this year. We managed to do Clocaenog 1, Slate Mountain and Brenig 2 on the Friday. Myherin 1, Dyfnant and Dyfi 2 on the Saturday, and both runs through the orme on the Saturday.

    Only disappointment was the lack of top line WRC machinery. R5 cars have nothing on the old s2000s in terms of spectacle imo, so the lack of any decent privateers in this new generation of WRC cars is felt. Hopefully Citroen and Msport can run 3 cars next year.
