    Default Vrrrrooooooooooooooom! Beep Beep!

    Following on from this thread I thought I'd post up some pics of my car on the move that Spoons very kindly took this weekend while we were out testing the roads in the fab weather we had on Sunday (and Steve was demonstrating why he needed bigger brakes with me in the passenger seat ... It was going well until we were doing silly mph on the wrong side of the road and he said ..."that's it I can't stop now ... do you see why I need bigger brakes?"... )

    Anyway here they are ... a big thanks to Spoons for taking the pics

    Hey that is one very quick car ... especially when you are on narrow twisty roads ... and the exhaust note is superb ... really enhances that 'Go faster' feeling!

    Yes I would imagine the handling is now very good with the uprated springs. Also, being lighter than the 3.0 V6 it will feel more "nimbler".

    Don't panic Beavis ... what you can't see is that it's a long stretch of road with a good long view ahead ... when I came over the hill I had a very long view of the road ahead and wouldn't have made the decision to 'use the road' if it wasn't safe and clear

    Just to add ... this one I took of Spoons' car shows the road a little better ... this is about a fifth/sixth I would say of the open stretch:

    Here's the road zoomed out a bit more ... it was funny while I was waiting for Spoons to come over the hill taking some test shots of other cars ... every one slowed down when they saw me in the grass with my tripod and camera on top Doing my bit for road safety you see!
