Not true. It's a street car. Regardless, we all know you didn't
challenge him, but you cant blame us for trying to goad you into a match
race. I mean, c'mon, the Ro-spit vs your 302 monster... Two
beautifully crafted hybrids slugging it out. If we could come up with
something like a Vitesse with a gas turbine we'd have pretty much every
possibility covered. I might even be moved to start work on my
"Spitsubishi" (Mitsubishi 2.6 intercooled turbo 4 cylinder transplant)
project so I coould come to the party... Now *THAT* would be an
entertaining Grassroots Motorsports feature story!

Genuinely sorry... didn't mean for the "money where one's mouth is"
comment to come off as inflammatory.. It's just an expression.
Honestly it was directed more at some of the "125hp 1500" crowd...
Believe me, I have no doubt that your TR6 is a beast to be reckoned

Viva the V8!
