This one runs here in Hungary in the Hungarian Rallye Championship. It has a 3.0L 12V almost stock engine with ITB, brembo 4pot calipers, straight cut gears and custom made ECU. The mods are limited because the strict regulations of FIA.

A friend sent me some " spy" pics of another one of Dawies GTV race cars that he's building at the moment at Glenwood Motors . Still lots of work to go but I love this throttle set up . Its use those barrel throttles which have been used for a long time in SA .

It was Scoobie day at Z . Dawie got Braam to drive . This car does not run coil overs but keeps torsion bars with RS springs in a cup type holder between lower A arm and reinforced bump stop . Clever way of getting around the " not having coil overs in rules " . Got some pics somewhere ...

Hi

Scoobie, I think is a south Africanism (and "englishism"??) for Subaru

We've been waiting a while for Franco to complete this car . It's first competitive outing in the South African exotic super car series is this weekend . Most cars in this series start at 700hp up 1000hp .
Some pics of this longitudinal mount 24v 3.7 twin turbo .

Surely the answer is simple! Front wheel drive, especially bonker powerful front wheel drives, SUCK!!!
Traction deficient, tyre thrashing, undesteering pigs!

Car manufacturers all around the world can do all they can to band aid FWDs, but you'll never see a FWD Ferrari, Lambo, Maserati, Mercedes Benz (well, serious ones), BMW, Jaguar, Aston Martin or any other manufacturer who has been able to survive this long while resisting the vile accountant influence!

It's RWD as you can see engine has been turned around . I think it's using a Jerico box but I will ask him for some pics .
