Anyone have any pictures of the WRC Corolla that was at Rallye International de Charlevoix?
I?m looking for technical type pics, suspension, roll cage, interior setup, etc.
Action shots would be cool too!
I was there also and judging from some of your photos, we must have been standing beside each other at various times. Too bad we did not know the other was there. We could have had some good conversations between lulls in the action.
How is this for an idea on future rallies? When specialstage.com members are out spectating at a corner, we should have our own battle cry along the lines of "anyone else here from specialstage.com?". That way we all might get to meet more members personally as opposed to electronically.
Sorry Bob I sould have been a little more, clear about the floor mounted shifter thing.
I have to dissagree with you on the sequential shifter thing though. If you read the 2002 SCCA performance rally rules, Article 10, Appendix O, Page 145.
1.The use of sequential gearchange mechanisms is not permitted.
On the other hand if you interpet the rules one way it says that sequential gearchange is allowed for Group 2 and 5.
Personally I would like to see sequential gearboxes allowed.
Ididn't realize you were only talking of open class cars. I beleive that chris Havas has sequential shifting in his golf anf I know of a yellow golf that was in Maine (and a couple of other rallies)with sequential shift. Are you sure that it's not legal in a open class club car?
I'm not sure about open class club car.
The yellow golf that you saw in Maine with sequential shift, do you know if it was a sequential gearbox or sequential shift mechanism on a regular shift box?
The reason I ask is that I've had a design for a sequential shift mechanism on a regular box in the back of my head for a while but kind of forgot about it cause I didn't think it was allowed.
The timing belt jumped on the Talon just this past monday only hours before I was going to fax in my entry. The car will most likely be fixed by next weekend but I don't have the funds for the rally after I buy the new cylinder head
I'm going to be volunteering at the service area, probably see you there.
