    Clio with Rotrex super charger

    Driving from Thurso to the ring, is around 1200 miles one way in my Meglio, so I've kept the heavy Recaros,( For now.) and the aircon.At my age, I need a bit of comfort. One of the group runs a Caterham R500, but trailers it there.

    I had an FQ400, running 636bhp, lovely car, it loved eating gearboxes, if it went a week without problems, it was probably a miracle. It taught me not to go over the top with these sort of Conversions. These days, I run a meglio320/340, and its quicker than my ability to drive it. Given the...

    Immobiliser Issues - Please Help!

    For a lot of electrical faults, it is worthwhile looking at earthing points, as a bad earth somewhere can cause very weird problems. I also had a key problem, solved by sending spare key for repair.

    Limp mode check injection

    You need to get it diagnosed. Someone telling you to change a Coil pack, won't necessarily fix it. What cylinder is it misfiring on?.

    In you situation, if you want to go quicker, try a track day, and take some tuition, that will probably help you go faster, safely, on the road.

    First track day advice for a 182

    Make sure fluids are all ok. Maybe get Brake Fluid changed. Make sure Brake pads are ok, and car is in generally good condition. Its not a race, take your time. If you are very nervous, hire an instructor for a couple of laps. their advice is invaluable. Most of all, relax, enjoy.

    What do people spend on their cars ?

    At 79 years old, I run a Meglio. I have certainly spent more money than the car is worth. We all know people who spend thousands on their cars, BUT, it is their money, to do as they wish with it.Perhaps we should have a Track Day, with people who have over spent by X amount on their cars, and if...

    My Meglio is beyond my ability to use its full potential on track, and i would not explore its limits on the road.
