That was the issue with the Group B cars, very vague but very powerful, a cars handling completely changes when you go on the power during a corner, I would imagine that the power in this car is so much so that you cant really be accurate with the placing of the car in a corner like in the picture when your on the power

I would imagine that this car handles a lot better than a Latest Evolution Group B Rally car, but the shear power makes the car difficult to be totally precise with, its would be interesting trying to change the set up to counter this charicoristic

Look at the downforce the car should have plenty ability to be accurate, pikes peak cars can have as much power as they want but teams tend to find the right balance of power and handling and that tends to get the best times.

Loeb even said the car handles like a prototype just signifcantly more acceleration.
