    Default Does your Turbo love this weather?

    OK so last night I took the siggy out for a warm up and a run. It's only been doing short Journeys.

    I let it warm up (a lot!) and then unleashed the beast, bl00dy hell the turbo loves this crips cold weather.


    Anyone else noticed a difference?

    I have air leaking from somewhere, but it still loves it. Waiting for some warmer weather to get bumper off and get it fixed.

    I was lucky with traction last night, had a Mazda RX7 twin a few years ago, In this weather it would have been like trying to stear a giant saucepan on the roads.
