    I never realised they were so fucking fast :eek3: How is that possible?

    Even the stock 1.8's done it in 2.8 seconds

    With

    "Max power 450 bhp (PS-DIN) (331 kW ISO) at 8,000 rpm.
    Max torque
    361 lbf·ft (489 N·m) at 5,500 rpm."

    Low weight and all wheel drive.

    It's more impressive than in gravel it's only slightly slower.

    I rode in an RS200 about 10 years ago at Summit Point Raceway. It was disturbing how it gathered speed.
    It revved like a dremel tool, weighed nothing and was built for one purpose.
