trouble is no matter where i look i cannot find a nice looking car to build!
6r4 is still top of my list and i know you cannot get kit of it but building a scratch one would be cool as a mate of mine is about to finish his with a evo engine + running gear 4wd lol

so i have some things i want my perfect kit to be
small (no bigger then a fester)
big engine
wide
not to look like crap or a 7/locost (my dad build a locost)
hear are a few cars i like look of not all kits but to give you an idead

You're not kidding!!

LOL!!
Bet it's not slow though!

It never occured to me that the engine was in the front, shame.
I think the engine position is more critical to a 6R4 rep than the AWD. I take it your mate has a set of moulds. It's a shame the V64V layout with it's 'through-the-sump' driveshaft is so bespoke, it doesn't lend itself easily to replication! I still think two bike engines in the back, one feeding power forwards to a front diff would be good!
