Re: Elise - we Salute You

The end of an era for sure! Hard to believe the wee plastic car I lusted after from launch would have gone on for 25 years! When I cam back from Montreal in 2004, everything I'd left behind in Scotland had moved on, including most of my friends! I'd been lusting for a Lotus since the days of Uncle R...

Bit like Mikes Cup's spoiler for beer.

He didnt like that ! Although the Gt3 proved to have a more balanced rear wing for beverage balancing :cheers

Re: Tesla Model 3

Appreciate the Taycan isnt at the same level but drove the Taycan Turbo last week! Holy sh*t its fast! Sounds like the starship enterprise in Sports Plus mode also. Ive no idea what it hit 60mph in , but it cant have been much over 2 seconds - and on to some insane speed in no time at all.

Re: Which V6 Brake Pads?

Hey Steve Yup Cup2s on the 311 was a case of forcibly understeering the car for the first few laps to get it to turn in and brake properly, and then by that stage I'd usually slid about enough for the rears to work! Having said that not sure it would have made much difference at Oulton given the wea...

We are staying at the MacDonald Portal about 10 mins from Sandiway Travel Shed.

Re: Range Rover L322 Experience

I had one for eight years and ended up clocking up 120 thousand miles on it before I sold it. It was superb. It was a 3 L diesel and I had it remapped to make it a wee bit quicker. Absolute weapon for towing but as others are pointed out things can go wrong on them which can be quite expensive. I ha...
