Well you may be right but what i said was what my Dad told me. The 6R4 is up and running and had a few outings already, we have put a new engine in it which has less horses but accelerates faster (i think that is it?), on the x-power forum there is a lot of posts and pictures from the Driver and my Dad, the drivers name is Kevin King.

My brother tried a 6R4 as an 'investment' and it was his views I was passing on.
As he ran the Audi GBM rally team with it's works Quattros then when he says a gearbox was noisy and clunky he was already comparing it with a competition box !! ( He still owns the RS200 and 205T16
I think what you may be referring to was the later de-tuned engines which were used in British national events under national rules even though they weren't permitted on internationsl.
'course as someone closer to a current running 6R4, I'm willing to listen if I've got it wrong. How's the car shaking down ? When's it's first outing ??
Edit I dont know how many pictures are here that i didnt post but i have finally found the web site the pics got put on by my Dad.
