What would you do ?

Ok, imagine you were told you could have your pick of any Scooby, then you could do a trolly dash to grab any goodies you want !

What car would you have and what would you grab ? No limits here, it's a big trolly.

Do you go for the classic or a new age, engine, brakes, body kit ?????

Expect there'll be some variety here, but put my money on the classic coming out on top.

Re: What would you do ?

Not a classic.

Type RA-R in yellow with the white alloys and optional carbon GT wing. Externally would leave it absolutely standard as I reckon it looks the business as it is.

Already has Brembo 6 pots so brakes are probably good as is. Would do the usual suspension mods as handling is more important to me than power and tbh would probably go for a front mount.

Would go for a usable 400 Bhp and stop i reckon. Any more than that would be a waste in the twisties which is where I do most of my driving. Not interested in setting low 1/4 mile times or a high top end speed.

RB320 with Wilwood 6-Piston front brakes, Project-Mu SCR-Pro discs, Tein super racing coilovers + swaybars and endlinks.

Re: What would you do ?

Well I'd have to go with the P1. externally I'd leave it standard. But I'd add 6 pots, coilovers, and ram it up to a reliable 450bhp. Sway bars, drop links and lift kit.
Might go for some NOS, just for a giggle !
As a finishing touch I'd have a computer built in the dash monitoing everything with digi readouts.

Re: What would you do ?

i'll be alternative and say an S202......., Otherwise a yellow Type RA-R totally stripped down bare with roll cage, harnesses, fixed carbon bucket front seats(no rears of course), stickiest rubber money can buy but with loads of dials n readouts as if on the starship enterprise. engine and chasis changes would be progressive but too much to list at this moment in time.

One of my favourite scoobs despite being a bug. The styling is about perfect and they look great in yellow. A very special car imo, just beaten out by the RA-R.
