This is no joke. A no name car manufacturer called Proton competed with all the big guns in rally (eg. Ford, Citoren etc....) and won by a margin of 3mins....Whats even more surprising is that Proton came in 12th overall ahead in the event of even some of the far more powerful WRC cars.

This is the first time Proton won in a SWRC competition.

Proton Boleh! Satria Neo can be the next popular street racer if they market it right.

Making fast car is easier than making a good, cost effective reliable car. Bring your car to the work shop, they can turn your passenger car to one hell of a monster provided you have deep pockets for such hobby. cool.gif

Hopefully not. I wouldn't want to see Satria neo becoming a street racer. Since Satria Neos are so rare in SG, it makes me feel proud of my car.

Saying is easier than doing. Go ahead and build one. Make SG proud. Don't be a NATO. See if you can win or not.

You think its easy to build a car to win a race? Do you know how much time and $$$ go into developing and making these rally cars? Not just the Proton but other S2000 cars?

Nope. Its a modified 1.8L Renault F4P (same engine used in the 1.8L Waja). Its uprated to 2L and modded to be able to hit 8500RPM and 280HP (as per regulations).

Possible, let it win one or two legs without affecting overall result to make them happy/advertising opportunity and continue to pump in money and participate in WRC (after all, majority of jap carmakers have left WRC)

L

Waja has a few versions. 1.6,1.8 and 2.0. Only the newer 1.6 using Campro engine. Old 1.6 use Mitsubishi 4G18. 1.8 versions uses Renault F4P. Then 2.0 uses Mitsubishi 6A12.

So the S2000 is developed from the 1.8L F4P engine. They didn't disclose what bore and stroke they use to make it to 2L though.

Btw, there is also a "stock" 1.6L Satria Neo used in Rally. Cusco modified the Satria Neo chassis to include roll cage, welding etc, suspension. However, the engine remains stock. Even intake and extractor is stock. Its used in 2WD and junior rallies.

Btw, junior is not exactly easy. We are talking about over 100KM/H on a single lane mud/gravel track. no SMG, manual gears and clutch.

OK thanks bro I will ignore them.

Btw, the Satria S2000 isn't exactly a successful car when it was first made. One of the problem is that the engine has a very narrow power range. Handling isn't that fantastic. It took them quite a lot of time and effort to make the car became what it is today.

One of the major problem is lack of power compared to Turbo cars (APRC has Turbo Evos and WRXs). So the car has to rely on better weight distribution and handling to overcome power deficiency.

Yes, it has undergo a facelift and a slightly more powerful Campro CPS engine (125HP compared to 110HP). There are 2 variants of it today. a 125HP Neo and the 145HP R3. There is also a limited Lotus Edition with Ohlins suspension and AP Racing brakes.

But sadly, its no longer available in SG.
