B^gger me that's shifting

The engines looked like they were about to fall off - must have been on some sort of shock absorbing mount I guess?

They would have very much stiffer versions of the rubber mounts already in the engine. I imagine there may be additional strengthening as well.

I would think that any mounts would probably only survive one race either way !

Hmmm I wonder how I can make mine sound like that

I think these guys will be running factory supplied EMM maps that will do away with all the clean burning frugle qualities of the standard map and just make the engines run like a raped ape.

Now that is one piece of software I would like to download from e-donkey
