2000s - anomaly with C4?

Recommended Posts

I've only tried in Finland so far, but times I set with the '01 Focus I can't match with the Fiesta, the newer Focus, or the C4. With the '07 Focus I've only changed the gears and the C4 I don't think I changed anything. With the Fiesta though, I thought I had a decent setup, that's actually been the slowest car for me out of the bunch.

I believe the C4 was an active diff car, so should have an advantage on twisty or slippy stages.  Finland is pretty straight & flowing, so diffs shouldn't be as important as you should rarely be out of 5th/6th gear

Despite its 315bhp I find it a bit clumsy. I can change direction and make better moves with both Focus.

I find the 2007 Focus the fastest, with difference, now. specially if you short enough the gearbox (around 210km/h max speed) you will find a very very fast car on track.

15 more horse powers while a little bit more mass.
IMHO it required (at least for me) 30-45 minutes of setup (default one's really screwed up) - now it's my favorite 2000's.
It's the only car besides Subaru 1995 that I've managed to get into top 10 (it could be subjective as I may progress with skills and stages memorization).

The 2001 cars were aloud Active Differentials (allover), ABS, Traction Control and  Active Anti Roll/Suspension. The 2007 cars only had a Center Active Differential, LSD Front/Rear and no electronic driver aids. They only improvements made from 2001 to 2007 would have been to the engines, gearboxes, aero, etc. So realistically the 2001 cars should handle better but the 2007 cars should have the power and torque advantage.

well had a few runs with focus on sweet lamb and C4 i personally can set better times with the 2001 subaru.the c4 has terrible body roll and on some fast runs on the last sweeping bend i rolled it a few times before doing a couple of nice runs.

so i would still say rs focus and subaru are better.rampage has quickest time at moment with a rs focus.
