Re: Your fleet running reports

I’ve driven a few 135i coops recently and they’re very quick ( esp with 400bhp ), very solid .....but you can ‘feel’ the extra lard through a roundabout Definitely my biggest complaint about the 330ci - it's such a lardy fucking thing. Sure, at speed it hides it's weight, but if you're braking towa...

Re: Your fleet running reports

As Fatboy said, you’ve come a long way baby! https://i.imgur.com/nN3aCth.jpg Cheers Mike, I enjoyed the good old days. I think that is why I am now in an exige - lightness of touch and raw feel. The MB was fast but none of those things I know yours isn’t a V6 but last time I weighed mine at the loc...

Hope it goes well for you Dave.

Re: Clay pigeon shooting

Did it as a youngster along with other forms of shooting. Did ABT, Skeet, DTL and Sporting disciplines and got reasonably good - enough to get some Eley badges and win a couple of cups. Had a Winchester 101 Lightweight 12 gauge Liked Sporting the best but most places put on a DTL when I used to do i...

Re: New Car

I must correct my previous criticism on power figures WRT Autocar. They seem 100% bob on with their bhp v PS stats. 8-) They often make typos or don't proofread things like a lot of mags are guilty of. Generally though I've found they're pretty close on most of the info and they can usually smell a...

I think the only solution is an evolution of the mandatory e-start vid : to include a timed 0-60.

4.8 or 5.2 then. 5.2 sounds more like what I had in mind - sorry Mike. Disappointing you again :lol: (I also never knew the 360 was 100kg lighter than the 355). 5.2 was the Porsche claim to 62mph in the ‘First Drive’ story 4.8 was the actual Autocar test time to 60mph Bit slower than the lighter rw...

I always found this quite an intriguing wee beast. If I was having one - this would be the kinda spec I’d want.

It does look like a fun thing - the only similar thing I’ve driven is an Seight which was a bit mad. Probably a lot more finesse to your Caterham
