You wanna take it back to Koenegseiggseiggs every week to have the engine rebuilt?
Racing motors have VERY different requirements than street motors do. They dont have to idle for long periods, they dont have to stay cool in stop and go traffic, they dont have to do stop and go traffic, tehy dont have to make power at reasonable RPM's, they dont have to last years and years of regular driving....
Reliability and practicality are the reason road engines dont make ridiculous horsepower. But if you can afford to rebuild a race engine and learn how to drive it on the street, go ahead. But you'll be missing the practicality of street-bred performance engines pretty quickly.
Unless you build yourself a racetrack...
Well, the results are in. Gr?nholm had Turbo problems and the RS200 wasn't running properly. "Monster" still holds the title.

Still no sub 10 minutes huh? Was it the conditions?
It seems to me like they don't really develop the cars though...that Suzuki looks the same as the last couple years...
