    Default Audible Zhinging

    I’ve been having big fun with me new Veccy these past couple of days. My whole style of driving has changed, she's very agile, I just can’t keep me hands of her (know what I mean ). So I took her for spin along the A13 between Barking and Thurrock, and somewhere around 90 & 100 I became aware of the most amazing ‘spinning top - zinging’ sound, it wasn’t loud at all, but it was clearly discernable from the other sounds. From what I could guess it must have been the 17’s. Anyone else experience this? (I recon those with 19’s probably notice it even more.)

    No can't say I have, but I get this awful growl from the exhaust and a whooooooooooooosh from the turbo when I put the hammer down

    Well it's an odd but strangely beautiful noise, could be a combination of the road surface and my particular brand of tyres - Eagles (I think)
