Ok...I thought WRC would step up to this beast for the on coming season. Guess not. Thread jacking, but check this thing out.

pearlwhite10 is an unknown
My uncle in Italy used to have a C4. They're pretty sweet little cars, but they don't seem like they'd be very good for rallying when they're stock. The Focus seems like it would do significantly better.

The focus is not sold AWD. The Focus RS is a FWD turbo car. I think the C4 is not sold turbo even though it's AWD. Neither is particularly close to it's rally cousin.

The X-games cars run on very tight tracks. If you took an 800hp car on a rally track, you'd be doing 200mph on dirt probably which is ludicrously unsafe. 300hp is effectively the cap for rally (by air restriction) where for x-games, there is no need for such restrictions due to extremely tight courses.

True mosc. WRC is different. I wish they still ran the escudio on pikes peak. That thing is a monster.

OT. Yes, it was my rally machine of choice. Plus you could make the gears tall as all heck and crush the top speed challenge.
