Bear in mind that the C170 chassis was developed for Rally...when it released Ford claimed it was stiffer in stock form than a Rally-prepped CT20 (Escort) chassis. So while it may be aging, its no slouch. Although I'd much rather have the C1 chassis, its supposed to be more of an improvement over the C170 than it was over the CT20.
