Hi Mike

In which way, do you mean these are "close" to the French effort?

The little I have heard about these "rally fighters" comes from a very breif segment I saw on US TOP GEAR, where Tanner Faps took one out for a shake down on some bayou roads and give it a floggin'.

As I understood, these are a tube chassis with body panels on. They have a Corvette fuel injected V8, auto transmission and torque converter, driving a solid rear axle w/four link (rear 2WD) and the engine up front/pushed back to the firewall...?

The Phroggies are a monocoque/composite body with integrated tube frame, a 3.0 liter bi-turbo V6, 6 speed sequential manual transmission, four wheel independant coil over/double a-arm suspension (also rear 2WD) and the diesel donk in the middle/back.

Other than the two wheel dive factor... tjhey're pretty different cattle from what I can determine...

I think the rally fighter price tage is likely far more palatable for the average punter though?
