    Thumbs Up It's official - CS3 is fast!!!

    As many of you know, when you increase engine power, you get used to it pretty quickly and soon forget how quick your car really is. Well yesterday, I was given a sharp reminder of just how fast CS3 really is!!

    On the way home yesterday, an M3 (current model) came storming up behind me on the M27. There was little traffic so I pulled over and let him past. I then went after him. He got caught by some slower traffic so I ended up right behind him as the road cleared to an empty (!!!!) 4 lane straight section!! We both booted it and there was nothing in it!! We did this twice, each time, there was nothing in it!!

    I'm very please with this. When I was running CS2 I had a similar incident where I was only just beaten by an M3, so I got my own back now.

    NB. Road was empty, 4 lanes, straight and good lighting - and yes, I know this is irresponsible.

    As long as you were only comparing how the two cars go at 70Mph thats all OK

    Speeding is dangerous no matter what kind of road its on!

    I have the VXR turbo, but the map for the hybrid. They now have a specific map for CS3 with the VXR turbo which is better than what I'm running. I have a dip in power - this is apparently gone now with the new software.

    Standard calipers with Mintex front discs with 16 grooves and EBC Red Stuff pads. Rears are Brembo 8 groove discs and EBC Green Stuff pads. Works really well.
