    Throttle steer is the same. Different gearing (there are nine different transfer gear sets) and more power makes it more exciting. Mine has the 24-valve head engine that puts out 292hp and I put in a taller gear set that keeps the rpm's down on the road. The extra power is significant! I was riding with Munari when he tested the car at the Baloccol test track and he truly was the master of the car. His shifts with the dog box were almost imperceptible.

    24-valve is a big deal! Got one of the works cars?

    They remade the 24 valve head setup in Italy. 50K euros but they did a good job of it from what I have heard. You can get a lot of power out of the two valve engine with the right modifications. The close ratio box makes a big difference as well.
