[quote name='zozzer' post='9703' date='Jan 12 2009, 12:31 AM']there has been much discussion all over the net about an RS-MAX, and the potential of the existing package to be upgraded.
A few people have pushed the 300bhp barrier with the 2.5T, and should be applauded for the determination, if you have read the Ford press you will see that there was/is a very very quick SMAX belonging to Hairy - it is not my tale to tell, so I will leave it up to him as to what he wants to say on the matter.
From my own individual investigations into the SMAX chassis I am 90% sure that there is space on the 'plan' for a 4x4 option, which with a big engine up front would be essential in my opinion to put the power down in a stable and drivable way.
I do how ever bow to those with 1st hand experience in all these matters = I am still very much on a learning curve.
When I have more time I am happy to post my thoughts on what for me is a now a long term project of buying a second hand 2.5T and 'playing with it' when time and resources allow - this may take me a while given the current work/life 'balance'. I use the term with the heaviest sense of irony I can muster.
We will see how things progress...[/quote]
