    Is the new suspension a common part with Rally2? Every little helps with inventory and supply.

Maybe they feared that the space frame regulations would have allowed for even more travel ? Altough the current cars behave awesome dynamically I think they looked a bit funny (like buggys) on certain pictures when the full travel could be seen.
    All I know is that in 2017 the Rally Finland organizers were against increased suspension travel for the new cars because it increases cornering speed. In their opinion, the cars can be more powerful but they shouldn't be fast in corners. And essentially this is how the Rally1 cars are now.

    We don't know if the reduced travel is the only thing limited in suspension, maybe there's also other limitations which reduce expenses.

    Greensmith says the speed of the new Puma Rally1 really shocked him... and this after driving the '17 car for a few years.

    Unless that's what they want you to think...

    We'll see what turns up in Monte Carlo.

    You'll probably see the new car before MC roles around

    Well I get that the looks and some parts can be different. But at least engine and hybrid unit can't be different (hybrid is same for everyone and engine was homologated in the summer). So Adamo is exaturating as always.

    It’s another ”adamoism”. He explains though how they re-designed the transmission. And maybe the mule was based on an i20 bodyshell, and the new car will be an actual tubular frame? Or made from Kona?

    Incredible spin by Adamo on the new car.

    They really have been still testing with a true mule right up until now, something M-Sport finished doing 6 months ago. Now Adamo says they have designed a brand new car (finally !) as if its a great achievement.

    But that will need testing on real roads which others have also been doing for months. They're really going to be up against it to have a fully-tested, reliable fast car by Monte Carlo.
