Thats some nice Power but im unsure the drive line would hold up for long. For $7K its a good price but i do see transmission troubles.

If they're power freaks then I'm sure that a few will be flocking over

Driven 'sensibly' and there is no reason why the XR8 driveline won't hold up long term. Driven like a drag car and well, what do you expect?

With some better rubber, stiffer springs and full exhaust your in the high 12's big time.
