New evolution
decoration
One season under belt with first Accent WRC, MSD had recognised number of shortcoming in their car. Some were related to MSD's previous involvement with track racing like inadequate suspension travel. Rallying called for different solutions and with Accent WRC2 MSD introduced revised aerodynamics, longer suspension travel and also improved suspension top mounts. Accent WRC2 also had active front differential in place of passive system used in first model.

But the most pressing concern was bad reliability record. Accent WRC2 was not such big a step ahead in terms of performance because the attention was mostly directed towards improving reliability.
