    Wasn't this supposed to be posted 7 days ago?
    At least its one more team in the WRC, watching only Fords and Citroens gets kinda boring, Wish it was Peugeot or Subaru though.

          Just like my above comment… I am a bit slow.

      I agree! Ever since Subaru left, it got kind of boring. Also someone needs to beat that cocky Frog. I am holding out hope that Miko will win out, but I won't hold my breath.

    It will look like this, but with 75% more scoops, vents, and lights

      ohdearlord, let me fix that for you.
      just give me a minute

      Oh, sure. You went all fancy on it. Mine has more scoops, though. Ya gotta have the roof scoop! I have no idea what the scoop ahead of the rear wheels does, but this is WRC — scoops = horsepower.
      Mine: $500
      Yours: $50,000

        oh it is too late now, already in production.
        Did you notice the totally awesome prodrive wheels with added distortion? Those things are like 8" deep, mofo!

          I'm not gonna lie, I like this.

        Rear wheel scoops = Metro 6R4? We can always hope for the return of Group B.

    Mini?!?! I am hoping/waiting for the VW entry. NO, not a Bug, but a Golf or Scirocco.

    1. scroggzilla Avatar

      More than likely, it will be the VW Polo. They already have a Super 2000 spec car, which is the basis of the 2011 WRC car.

      I've got my fingers crossed for a Dacia program. If it happens, I would hope they'd have the presence of mind to open the press release with "Great news!"

      Hella-Spiderface!
      I would rally the crap out of that

      I think that many lights would draw more power than the engine produces. Which seems like a perfectly reasonable thing to do. Although I think that the colour scheme might be little more green orange and white, rather than the Spanish flag that you've gone for,

        eh, i think its perfict considering im rushing brushstrokes between my supervisors watchful stares.

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
