Yes - there's only so much you can do legally.  I think
turbo cars are especially easy to circumvent the rules.
Find some CAM-2 102 octane unleaded, change the wastegate
diaphragm, and viola - illegal horsepower.  The point I was
trying to make earlier was, given lots and lots of money, I
could strip a car down, re-weld the uni-body to be extra
stiff, then put everything back in. Given two otherwise
identical cars, I think the stiffer one would handle better
by providing more stable suspension mounting points.

My legal suggestion for getting the best time out of almost
any car would be to invest in some education and practice at
a good racing school.

Speaking of Quattros, what Solo-II class would a 1983
Quattro Turbo Coupe be in?  A/S?
