    Default Overtaking Problems

    I sort of knew it wasn't going to work, but I didn't have the figures to hand at the time.

    Anyway, future reference for other VXR owners, a TVR Tuscan S falls firmly into the "Don't bother: you will fail miserably" category. Flat out in 3rd gear it was like I had stood on the brakes.

    The stats explain why:
    380hp at 7000rpm
    1100kg kerbweight
    0-60 in 3.8s
    0-100 in 8.1s

    Nice try. But I would have just admired that Russian motor. Knowing I would be on to taking second place.

    Oh dear - not sure whether to 'admire' you for the nerve of trying, or and ask you "What the hell were you thinking?!!!"

    They are fiendishly quick those Tuscans!

    Not really an overtaking problem then, more like an overtaking handicap.

    It's going to take more than a remap to get 345hp per 1000kg !
