So which engine do they use? And how much power the engine put out (dyno/wheels). It will be interesting if Realtime Racing brings good points or even a win on the championship. Of all things, the car is a FWD which some claims doesn't do well in competition compared to rear wheel driven machines and if it's a J series engine, it's a SOHC, again some claims doesn't do well compared to multiple overhead cams.

Solid result.

(NB: Can't help noticing that painting over the bucktooth does wonders for the appearance of the car.)

I noticed that too, the stripes up the hood make it look more integrated. But I would not want stripes on my car.

So does anyone know approximately how much power the V6 TSX is making in the race? How does it compare with the K24 that was used before?

RTR has been very successful with the TSX powertrain and chassis in the past and we have no reason to believe they won't continue to be, and don't forget some of the most successful cars in touring car series' are FWD. They are running a J35 as it has to be what comes stock in the car. Who cares about SOHC? The J has always been an amazing engine in many respects and it's mainly spec. sheet racers that get hung up on this making a real difference, they're successfully battling Boss 302's with it for crying out loud.
