Saleen S1 Cup.

Surprised by a US company going small capacity and "modest" power, but this seems to have some legs. 8-)

You mean this?

Re: Your fleet running reports

I've enquired about a Celtic Tuning remap so I'll see how much that is. Anyone had any dealings with any of them? Look like franchises so likely to be different experiences at different garages I suppose Mondeo was a Celtic Tuning map and it was fine - man with a branded van, laptop and card machin...

Re: Your fleet running reports

What you'll likely find with a decent remap is that the torque will come in earlier, and harder, so you'll have that, and it'll give it a bit more pep at the top end, so you'll have a wider powerband overall, which is nice. For images I normally just upload to imgur and then copy the link and paste ...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Tyres are Triangle I think generally they're best to be round. Pics? Edit: Also, any of the 2.2d lumps - regardless of spec - look like they remap nicely (anything from 170-210bhp and 300lb/ft+ depending on the base engine config - guessing they use different turbos, intercoolers, injectors, etc) s...

Re: Your fleet running reports

Decided to give the Galaxy some gummi-pflege as it has been cold. So, I'm doing this in the dark, because big brain! Nothing seems to be coming out, so I squeeze the bottle a bit harder and out pops the brush thingy and half the bottle pours out over the nearside door soaking the handle, window swi...

Ha, I didn't realise the FourFour had stopped being a tarted up Mitsi Colt, or whatever it was before.

I've got a Flintan at home, which is fine for short stretches but christ on a bike the base is firm and after a few hours of being in it, it starts to get uncomfortable.

Re: First car choices

Yeah, to be fair, even the 200 it's based on (I'd not go back that old though, rust etc) corner flat and steer pretty nicely. As a first shed, if insurance is cheap you could do far worse.

Re: First car choices

You'll be lucky to find a decent old civic for first car money. Cheap ones are very much project cars these days. That might not be a bad thing, depending on how spanner-curious he is and how much he 'needs' to drive. My mates first car was a shagged Suzuki Jimny. Absolute piece of piss to work on,...

Re: First car choices

My only advice is check parts availability - even the Puma, which isn't 'that' old, had plenty of parts which you just can't get any more. Body panels in particular, but really, anything that wasn't on the Fiesta already was a PITA to source. £300+ for a wing in primer, for example. As it's for a le...

And on the same thread, good insurers for chipped cars? I suspect I may do it before the year is out, and DL don't touch you for a power increase over 20%.

At least I now have a list of people to round up in the first wave when I get installed as Dictator for Life.

Re: Your fleet running reports

Changing the rears on the 330 last year changed it from a lairy, tail happy oversteer machine to a squirt and go machine.

I'm getting better at loosening up the rear end with a bit more brutal application of throttle and clutch though ;)
