    Returning to Group B Rally Regulations?

    If you could change an FIA rally to your dream regulatory environment, what would you change and why?

    Only a person not knowing what he's talking about can ask that.

    WRC2017 rules are basically Group B revised....

    - Big aero .... check
    - Significantly more power... check
    - Lighter car.....check

    The only thing missing from real Group B is the crappy handling....

    Nice when people talk about rules which they never ever even bothered to read at first (author of the thread is obviously no exception as well).

    Do tell me what is wrong with that simple comparison. In terms of changes between 2016 -> 2017 those changes are "towards" Group B-like. (even though some are minimal like the weight change)
    Off course lots of things are different (the active diff is not something that was there, neither are mid-mounted engines introduced etc etc.).

    Simple argument post draws simple comparison. One-sentence troll post saying nothing draws.....
