Left the GPS at home.
Was a little bit of lift so couldn't go WOT plus I had some engine troubles.

When I first opened it up I nearly fell off the back of the seat, nearlt went over the side a few times and got it in the air twice.
Gave it a good run and saw Mr Manning on my travels.

Am really pleased with it, I think everyone should own an SR4 at some point in their life!
