All of my life it seems I see and witness the same things people crave power in a car to go faster than the next guy out drag him out accelerate overtake.
BUT!!!!!!! where do we all stand on ability, I find it far more gratifying if I can out think and out "drive" some impatient ******* by using the power whatever car I am driving happens to have, first an example to set the scene,
M11 from Jct 7 then M25 almost to the A1010 cut.
I was driving a Kia Piccanto 1.1, my impatient padwan was in a TT 2.0 TFSi I was sitting in the flow of traffic if he got past my little silver biscuit tin he would have run into the backend of a Honda, so he wasn't going nowhere, so he then decides to try and undertake me so I use all the power the little Kia didn't have and started to drop back opening up about a 60 yard gap and holding him pinned in place, this works only as long as I have traffic flow moving at the same pace in all lanes, so as soon as I see the change coming I catch my opponent napping and close up the gap so he can pull to the middle and undertake me but cannot get past. And on and on,,,,,,,,,,
I managed this little bit of fun (well it was for me he was beetroot BTW) I was moving as fast as the flow would allow at 9am on the M11/M25 so you can get the picture I was not intentionally holding this muppet up. All the more fun when you pretend you aren't playing games and just driving, Ooohhh it makes them so MAD
So to the point of the post. I have owned some "very" rapid cars since passing my test in 1981 500+ HP V8 corvette's Trans Am's with Turbo's on'em etc but never get more satisfaction than when you slay a giant in a humble car.
Power corrupt's, absolute power corrupt's absolutely!
