The original FIA cars were running about 370hp. Just goes to prove that big HP isn't needed in these cars. They are very light & ERA can set up the rear gearing to work around your engine/trans. On my next motor I will likely shoot for around 350-400 tops. I'm probably around 300hp now & losing traction isn't dificult, nor does the car feel a bit sluggish.
