I'd love to do a strip-down of one of this era of touring cars, just to revel in the engineering porn of it all.

Did you see the article about how they converted the Volvo 850 cylinder head to racing spec? Brilliant TWR bodging.

I know of two racers, who are successful engineers in their own right who have bought and sold Super Tourers. Both of them said the same thing, they are too complex for them. They need a team of full time engineers to fully understand them.
