my thoughts exactly, I heard rumors of it being a real 4wd but I didn't think it would happen.Despite the propoganda I feel that 300BHP in a FWD only car is asking a lot even with clever diffs. By thier own admission they are foregoing ESP and I feel that it is going to be a real handful with that much power going through the fronts only.
As for thier comments on handling? Well I remember thier foray into BTCC, it needed the expertise of Powertrain to sort it out for them. I will watch this with interest.
