Hey Tom, all cars running in the INRC are Group N. There are no Grp A cars running at all.

However, the MRF Baleno's do have a gearbox with different ratios, hence the speed difference.

Will have the final results up ASAP.

well, for 2004, the homologation regulations for Grp N allow the manufacturer to homologate variants without a minimum production run. Hence the gearbox.

well, its not all the Vtec's fault. The car is fast, but Jibby's driving style is not all-out. He's the type of driver who drives conservatively and hopes to get on the podium on the account of other's misfortunes. Infact there are times where the 1400cc cars are faster than him!!!

very true. also if you have a budget like MRF's then you can try some things but if you are a privateer then.....

hey tom, no group A cars from last year itself. this is to reduce the cost of rallying and to make it easier for privateers. i think it has helped judging by the number of entries.
