    Maybe compaired to the Subarus I really dont know but it does seem you need to upgrade a lot of areas to make them at least reliable and track worthy as a race car. Even cars doing track days have issues with PTU, engine oil, and engine overheating and the brakes only last around 2 track days or sometimes even less before the seals are toast. They do make better aftermarket seals which can tollerate track days but its just an indication that the car isnt like a modern superbike for example that you can roll off the showroom floor run it in and it will take a thrashing at the track and have zero issue mechanically. Wasnt the RS at Bathurst this year way behind due to losing boost or something?
    Just postulating on the cost benifit of an RS as a race car, any others out there with comparitive knowledge about this or have I got the reasoning completely wrong?

    If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space.

    After 2018 Bathurst 6hrs and the BMW monsters that roared down conrod straight, I think the writing was on the wall and the 2018 rule changes made the event a tad more lopsided.

    I missed this year's event and wouldn't you believe it another BMW win.
    Gone are the days of the Focus RS, BMW 135i, AMG A45 scraps along with the EVo's and Sti's
    Compare the fastest lap in the link below in the 2019 event to the 2017 Event (Mostert 2m25.802s Focus RS)

    How times change...
