Remarks – Newly signed WRC driver Toni Gruber is using the GTX 1.3 from the Italian manufacturer this week in Mulhouse. Having not had any track time at the French track prior to the event he had to change a lot to his base setup since arriving for the ENS season opener. Switching to softer front springs, more caster, harder shock oil in the rear and softer sway bars all around, the German said that this gave the car the steering he was lacking. Also playing around with different Blitz bodies, while he also tried the TS035, he felt the TS040 gave the car more steering. Finally the car features a new chassis plate that has the brace around the steering post removed for more flex in the front of the car.
