    some driving fun today.

    tried out the new power on an un suspecting driver today in a seat leon cupra R, his face was a picture when everytime he booted it i was right behind him i managed to out brake him at the end of the road (after i passed him that is)

    so we sat at the end of the road, he had a smile on him so i did the decent thing, poked my tongue out and blew a rasberry at him

    hooked up with Danny in belvedere and had a blast in the bus, i mean mine is good fun but feck me this thing is a 'serious' weapon!! going around a slight bend in 3rd had the front tyres lit up. the gearbox is perfect for this kind of power, as the pull in each is just relentless. i only got to try out 4 of the 6 but its just given me a shove into serious for getting my VXR conversion done the f23 just feels like its from the stoneage in comparison to the shifting from gear to gear on the M32.

    i had to give it back to Danny as there was just too much temptation to go further and further and find out where its limits are... personaly i dont think anyone will know.... because it dont have any. ta for the drive today Dan.

    Sounds like you had a laff Gav... wonder if I could talk G-Man into sticking one in mine next year

    I had a little go with a TT myself earlier... he couldn't get away around the roundabouts, but he left me for dead on the straights

    i think its more a power to weight issue Andy, but i'm not unhappy with how the bus performed and i know if it came down to handling my bus would struggle. it was a bit of fun but i'd love to know what model it was as i'm unsure it dont look like the cupra R i've seen pics of.
