Really?!? Ooops. My mistake- thanks for the correction, Javad. Do you
any weights so we can see the differences?

Advantage is the RS2 engine has more power potential, unless you just
a S8 engine in there- that would be plenty of power for an UrQ.

Just to address the weight issue:

Believe it or not, the all aluminum V8 is lighter than an RS2, about the
same weight as a 10v, plus puts it weight a little farther back over the
front axle.
