When U.S. was talking about the problems, saying it couldn't be done without a balance shaft, Lancia (as I recall) built one that worked.

Sean Smith is going, Julie and I are going, and another friend of Sean's. We should hook up with you somewhere around G'boro on our way south on Friday.

I'm not a member of NASA. I have one school in Sept and one in Oct, haven't signed up for August yet. I've heard CMP is really hard on brakes and tires, I really like VIR, but Road Atlanta will be a rush to drive after seeing 3 Petit LeMans there<br><img src="http://members.roadfly.com/jorg/M3GTRSig.jpg">

The main reason that FWD econoboxes (even those tarted up to be performance sedan's) use V6 engines is because they can't fit Inline 6 engines transversely, as dictated by the FWD drivetrain..

Mercedes dropped the Inline 6 a few years ago due to cost cutting, they use the same V8 engine block, minus 2 cylinders.

BMW, thankfully, is still run by engineer's. Lexus is a worthy competitor as they try to emulate this philosophy more so than the others, eg Acura/Honda.
