You couldn’t wish to meet a nicer person.
Very sad news indeed. My deepest condolences to Brian and the rest of the family.

LRP 335E Sprint Coupe

We’re beginning to see quite a few cars in the paddocks shod with Nankangs. Please let us know what you think of them.

The car’s looking great !

New EU Design rules

Very true, as too are the factories that build wind turbines, solar panels and EV batteries etc.

Sustainability is a very complex subject, and commerce and governments continue to lie to us about it depending on whatever financial or political gain suits them at the time.

New EU Design rules

The Renault Kangoo electric van that I sometimes drive at work, has a choice of three different electric motor type noises to help warn pedestrians. It can also be switched to silent. On silent or with noise, you’d be surprised how many people step out in front of it without looking properly. It’s p...

That was 2yrs ago, and it’s still sat on the garage floor. I really must pull my finger out :lol:

Corky's Scimitars & S2K

Ironically a GTE with a Honda engine will weigh less than an s2000. Probably with less oversteer :oops: The S2000 isn’t necessarily an over-steery kind of car. It just depends which model year you buy. Apparently the one I chose is the one most inclined to do it, due to an overly stiff rear ARB. La...

Hahaha you could have a point, I was slower :lol: A fairer comparison would probably be with my first visit to Aintree in the DET. In which case, I blitzed it in the S2K. Dammed lies and statistics eh :w What bits have you got then? Feel free to drop me a pm. Lukeyboy is sorting me out with an ARB.

I have no competition, so wheres the impetus to come back out Chaps? *yawn* :drum:
It’d be interesting to see how a high powered small sports fares in CM. Also, think of all those CM class records begging to be broken! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :w

Out of interest my MR2 is 178 bhp/137 ft/lbs. The Turbo is 200/200, so only 12% more power but 46% more torque. Only a 1.2% increase in handicap. If only I could find a good one :roll:
Sounds like a plan !

I think I need to get the Touareg out there, 262bhp, 580Nm and about 2200kg with driver. But 0-60 in 7.3secs :D

It may be a bit wobbly around the bends though. :lol:
