True. Wonder what the MPG figures will be

Addition of ILIRS and DBJ front suspension, should make for a much better performing car than S197.

That's one thing that needs to be remembered, this is much more than S197 with 15hp/10tq increase. Thinking of it as such is a poor way to measure S550.
Absolutely, I was just curious. Not judging it, as I know it's gonna be a MUCH better car all around. 80 pounds is quite respectable. I was thinking more like 200. I'm actually really impressed by what they've done with it. I'm just not sold on the exterior yet.
