AUTOart 1:18 Peugeot 206 WRC Rally Car In New Zealand 2002

Hi Everyone.Is good to showcase one of my favourite Peugeot 206 rally car on gravel.Is exactly the same car which shown last week by Panizzi ( Tarmac setup = lower suspension = lower centre of gravity = better grip + stability ).
But for off road or gravel , the suspension have to be set higher due to the uneven surface , rough terrain , rocks & shallow rivers( water splashing ).
This is also an important factor to protect the under carriage of the car from being contact with the ground although it usually covered.
Rims for tarmac is 17" & thinner tyres because is it provides excellent grips & performances.Where by on gravel it has to be 15" & with thicker tyres to provides more space allowances & cushion when the car speeding , jumping & landing comfortably on such harsh condition.

Thanks ,
