    Default You can tell a car has serious amount of power...

    ....when it goes to overtake by pulling onto the other side of the road before applying the power so as to not rear end the car it's passing. Saw a highly modded Blue Senator in front of me do this today, and I can now see why. The take off was instant!! The back end dropped and he was gone.... If he'd accelerated like that whilst coming up behind the other car and pulling out like normal he'd never have made it out and round in time without clipping it. It was SERIOUSLY quick!!

    Looked a cool move though.

    thats the correct proceedure for an overtake via roadcraft/IAM you pull out to ensure the roadway is clear and that the vehicle your approaching is aware of the manouver indicate and then apply the acclerator ... thus preventing the unecessary near misses and cutting up the car your overtaking or where people overtake on blind bends or hump backed hills on junctions etc etc
    but always nice to see applied

    I didn't know that, but it makes perfect sense.

    Ah the Senator, One of the last proper cars Vauxhall made!(that and the carlton) I had a 3.0 24v CDX (Fully loaded) and loved every minute of ownership. It was rapid, and super smooth. Sold it due to wife wanting a smaller engined car so she could drive it........ended up with a Vectra 3.2 V6 elite lol.


    Sorry they didnt do a CDX, It was a CD

    It'll have been a 3.0 24v then.

    Take that, increase the stroke and add two turbos.......


    I did wonder if it was the "Lotus" Senator, basically a Senny Automatic with the running gear of a written off Lotus Carlton bolted in.
