    Had a ride in VXR Astra today

    My next neighbour's but one best mate is the manager of VX Racing. He lent him the VXR Astra for the day. Wow what can i say, the car is awsome. Very quick indeed the acceralation and the pick up in any gear is brillant, the weather was wet and dark so he could take it to it's full potential. I took some photos but havn't come out too well as it was dark.

    Porsche do it - red for standard brakes, yellow for ceramics. It is simply a branding thing which makes the top models stand out more.
