You're entitled to your opinion although I believe you are wrong. Unfortunately, now I must embark on a proper friday night activity and drink ale and look at girls instead of swearing at my laptop.
Got to be honest I sort of lost the plot wih Porsche numbering systems when they stopped just calling it a 911 - when are they going to do a 999 - or was it anything to do with Al Queda???

before I say anything more it's important that you realise I am one of the senior citizens of the Rib Community. Fortunately I am a year younger than David Manning so I am not the oldest of the Old Gits

I seem to remember this from my youth, it must have been before puberty cos I only thought about totty and Clearasil after that.


Now I think you are right about the GM box at the time they were reckoned to be the bestest Auto box's in the wurld. and I seem to remember there was an Auto engineer called Dodd who was the werlds bestest GM transmission man and had a lot of Rolls Royce clients in Germany and Switzerland, but he lived up north somewhere past Watford.

The Autobahns had no speed limit and to cut down his travelling time he built a car using a 10 ton Leyland lorry chassis, a GM box and a Rolls Royce Merlin engine ( that's one crazy mf ) The guy called it the Beast I think it had dual axles on the back and he had a body made up and a Enlarged Rolls Royce radiator and it looked like an oversized Roller. Rolls Royce werent up for it and took him to court and made him remove the Radiator. The car(vehicle ) was said to achieve 200 MPH and eventuall crashed and burnt. I believe it had 900 hp going through the gear box.

That was all done from memory which it appears is flawed that would be the Age thing

I hate to break up the party here guys, but while you're all resting on your laurels and attacking coddipoos he's actually RIGHT about changing gear without the clutch. I can do it in any (non-f*cked) manual vehicle.
Whether or not he's a 12 year old boy or Jimmy Swaggart's gimp has no bearing on it.

Funny, you put enough people into management and eventually they argue themselves to death with no product produced...

I'm with Nos here... when my old Peugeot 104 (Yeah, yeah.. Iknow.. but it was a ZS ) clutch pedal mount broke.. Ooops.... I managed to drive it... the starting off in gear was the most difficult bit... but we got home... Some of the old Dennis trucks with the loooong gear lever that went into the crew compartment could have gear changes done without a clutch... and mostly by boots from the boys in tha back.....

You didn't seriously expect mne to read all 18 pages 1st just to make sure you weren't serious when talking about codders did you?

I HAVE come to expect you guys not to take anything he says seriously at all...
