      In before 'OMG BIGGER ENGINE UNDERSTEER OMG OMG OMG!'

      The S50 motor originally in the car weighs 333lbs (it is an Iron block motor)
      the S85 is only 350lbs...

      so, just to squash that before it pops up.
      also, the overall length is about the same as well.

      So put a 20lb weight in the trunk (a couple of cases of beer) and you can restore the 50/50 weight balance...

      Cage probably took care of that. I bet this thing is an absolute blast to drive.

      awesome build thing must scream
      because he was a 17 year old kid that was already racing an M3....and then went and 'built' this. ASSuming he isnt wealthy is a little ridiculous.

      You're too late, I already asked, but didn't know this about the length/engine weights. Looks like a lot of fun.

      Jesus people who cares about the extraneous circumstances? Are they directly affecting you? Is your life worse off because a kid halfway around the world (from most of you) either is very rich and built an awesome car or very hard working and built an awesome car, or both? Your inferiority complexes are showing...
