Re: 25v I-5, no such engine

Thats becase of the short Wheelbase.  The front weight is made worse by
having it be shorter.  Front has more leverage on rear then in effect.
	AND it had a 20v up front which is much heavier than a 10v motor.
But hey, I'll take one bad Weight Dist and all. :-)
	Oh, BTW, I just bought a ur-q I think.  I'm keepign it kind of
Hush Hush untill the deal is done.
	It's been wrecked but I will fix it.  In fact, its in your area.
Its Richard Funnels ride.  Ever seen it???
	SS Brake lines, Pagid Pads, ABT dash.  Stock everything else but
who cares.  That will change.  Strong car, needs new front end.  Good time
to put on FiberGlass or CArbon Fiber Fenders to save weight and put on a
Euro Bumper for good looks.
