    Regals 340 Bhp 350 ft/lb

    I see Regal have taken the VXR upto 340 bhp with 350 ft/lb torque all ready.

    Sounds like it would give most cars a scare on the roads lol.

    Think what power will be got from these cars in years to come when this kind of power is being produced already.

    Dave, I don't think the same progress will be made from these as the original ZLET was, it's only a gentle development of this to start with really - once you've got the forged pistons and oil spray bar in, there can't be that much different surely.

    But you're right, I wouldn't be surprised if they start knocking on the door of (a totally uncontrollable) 400bhp in a while!

    Big power in a FWD car is hader to get off the line but once your moving there wouldnt be a problem.

    surely they are going to have to turn to 4wd if they increase the power much more, 340bhp in a fwd is pushing it already...

    Some would say that 240 is pushing it.

    Once it going though that must be awsome - in gear punch must some something else with that much torque.

    You will need a big wallett too to keep the thing juiced up.
