S/V60 Drivetrain Differences between V60 T6 Stadard / R Design / Polestar
I have previously been into JDM wagons and for a long time had a Legnum VR4 which I took from 145KW ATW (stock) to about 310KW ATW before reaching the point where it was at the limit of the stock transfer case / diff / transmission in general.
I love wagons, and do enjoy modifying them, but with certain cars like the Legnum there simply wasn't a path forward without spending enormous money on basically a custom built drive train (at least without sacrificing reliability).
My question is, what if any, is the difference between the standard V60 T6, R design and Polestar in terms of running gear? I know the obvious differences in interior, brakes, engine etc. I was just wanting to find out more about potential weak points in buying a cheaper model to modify.
My plan would be to buy a V60 T6 base model or perhaps an R if the price is right and taking it on as my new project build. The Polestars are nice, but seem to be largely a waste of money if I am going to be upgrading exhaust, injectors, turbos, manifolds, fuel pumps (e85) etc. The only reason I could see myself stepping up to a Polestar is if the drivetrain is built significantly stronger than base models.
Thanks for your knowledge in advance.
