hi, just joined just a few questions on the 205 rallye is the box they come with any good as mine seems really long geared which is not what i expected as being a ex 106 rallye owner the box on them is far from long.

is the engine easy to tune i have a vtr engine in the shed if it would be better off putting that in i wouldnt mind a euro spec engine but i cant find any and funds are low at the moment but could be a future purchase any help would be appreciated cheers Stefan.

UK 205 rallyes are pretty crap as standard to be honest.

Really long ratio box and a 75bhp iron block engine, XS engine and box drop straight in and give 85bhp as standard, 20kg less and a really nice short ratio box.

The problem with getting a Euro engine is finding one!

Yeah get an xs/gt box the 106 rallye one is good but its not worth paying 100+ for a 2nd box which you know has been ragged..
