#1 out on the open road

Post by dal2.0litrefrogeye » Sun Nov 04, 2018 10:47 pm


pleased with how its going , not thrashing it to within an inch of its life yet , just running it on the torque , also very pleased with the handling, it feels very neutral and i can feel where the front wheels are , and incase anyone is wondering all speed limits were adhered to

Brilliant Darren. Fantastic sound too - I love that combination of the deep exhaust and the gentle whine of the box. Real music! After watching it I started to get that itch again - wanted to get mine out and go for a run but sadly I have to go to work :thumbdown:
