Lets remember why were here......
I took the beast out for a spin last night - just for the hell of it for the first time in ages.
When you drive sensibly (nearly) all the time, you kinda forget how good these cars are. Theres some nice new roads near me that are pretty empty, plenty of roundabouts and nice grippy straights and corners. Walloping out of a corner in 2nd or 3rd and giving it a bootfull - cream on my leather seats!!
It was nice and cold outside too, and the roar as the revs climb made me feel all warm and tingly!
172? Williams? VTS? Whatever, Im very happy with my valver, itll bother most 2ltrs, scare nearly all other hot hatches on the road, and turns heads in standard trim - not bad for a 10 year old car! Get the tyres warm and itll pull lumps of tarmac off the road before losing grip!
Bounce off the limiter at 7000? Suits me, sir! I just cant decide whether to mod it or keep it standard!!!! Broom broom!!
