Well I know a 4wd turbo that is quicker than the figures given for a 911 turbo
and it does it regularly without burning out clutches. Must be Jap

Have you actually tried doing a max acceleration run in it? Of course it will be quick anyway but I am talking about the way you have to drive to get the record breaking run!!!

And if you want to see a REALLY quick car look at the Ultima - it holds the world 0 - 100 - 0 record. No traction control - RWD - no ABS - no turbo - just raw grunt. And it's beaten the Mclaren F1.....

http://www.ultimasports.co.uk/record.html

Just watch the videos and notice how little drama there is. Barely any wheel spin and it doesn't even look that dramatic - except for the flames coming out at the end!!!

Yes I was at Bruntingthorpe a few weeks ago, and i'm talking about a 4 door saloon car now if he wants to compete on a real dirt track!

Great vid tho.

Yup. Why not?


Actually, I wouldn't want it anyway.

Interesting read this thread.

Lorries dont use the retarder or exhaust brake in wet or icy conditions, not if you dont want the trailer taking the lead As demonstrated by a couple of our drivers. The gaffer cant afford to keep re-cabbing Scania toplines to often.

Advanced driving/riding, easy Information, Position, Speed, Gear, Acceleration or it was when I was teaching it.

Left foot braking, never used it. All my rally cars were rwd and I had enough on keeping em on the bloody road, with out worrying what me left foot was doing Hence the term 'cars'.

Bikes, the faster the better, but since I bought me rib I am not allowed to have one anymore. Something about too many toy's!!!!! And to cap it all me Vectra SRI is going to be replaced by a TD5 disco.

Apart from that an excellent read. After living in a truck all week its threads like this that give me that welcome home feeling

Time for me pipe and slipper's

Martin-Getting old very disgracefully!!!!!!!!!

Spent many years living in a cab, I know that feeling, still miss it a bit though.
