*Note for the set up:
-Packers have a step of 5 mm each of them.
-Remember to adapt Dampers if you change Springs; take into account that their variability goes from Soft Damping for Softier Springs to Stiff Damping for Stiffer ones.
-Higher Damping in Estension is highly suggested in tracks with many jumps.
-Steering Assist should be used if strange vibrations comes from the steering wheel; however, in general, lower values raise the FFB at lower speed and viceversa.
-FIA Regulations allowed the homologation of 2 Sets of gear ratios and no option for final gear or 2 finals and just 1 Set. Polo is homologated with a selfbuilt gearbox (in absence of other info 2 finals were chosen for it).*
The Volkswagen Polo R WRC is a World Rally Car built and operated by Volkswagen Motorsport and based on the Volkswagen Polo for use in the World Rally Championship. The car, which made its debut at the start of the 2013 season, is built to the second generation of World Rally Car regulations that were introduced 2011, which are based upon the existing Super 2000 regulations, but powered by a turbocharged 1.6-litre engine rather than the normally aspirated 2-litre engine found in Super 2000 cars.
The Polo R WRC marks Volkswagen's second entry into the World Rally Championship as a manufacturer. Volkswagen Motorsport had previously entered the Volkswagen Golf GTI and GTI 16V in rallies between 1983 and 1988 with some success. The company also made the Volkswagen Golf Mk3 and Mk4 available as a kit car to privateer entries during the Group A era from 1993 to 1997, though its use was mostly limited to national championships.
The Polo R WRC was officially unveiled in May 2011, and spent the next eighteen months in testing, with two-time World Rally Champion Carlos Sainz, Sbastien Ogierwho was recruited to the team from the Citron World Rally Team at the end of the 2011 seasonand Volkswagen's testing and development driver Dieter Depping carrying out development in Norway, Finland, Germany, Spain and Mexico to simulate the conditions the car would encounter in competition.
