Would you REALLY want to drive any faster with an 11m long 2.9m wide boat and trailer weighing 3.2 tonnes???

Besides which I have tweaked the pump slightly on mine - I would estimate I am getting about 12 secs 0-60. Not brilliant but not bad either!!!

Obviously if my company cars or my mates Ferrari was performing like that I would consider it VERY sluggish but it is NOT that kind of vehicle.

Nope he can't afford an Enzo - boring old 360 Spyder - he was going to get a F430 but when he found out how much money he had lost on the 360 he isn't going to bother trading up.

Actually it was the "radio controlled, 1:18 scale" that was relevant!

i would be very surprised /or not if your landy accelerated to 60 in 12 or even 17 seconds with the boat on the back

but i may be wrong as you have "tweaked" it

shame landrover did not sus that simple little trick of yours for all the landrovers they have produced then perhaps they would get less of a slating for being sluggish

It is not just Land Rover - most makers have to comply with very restrictive emissions regs - of course my Disco will also comply - on the day of the MOT!!!

As to the tweak it is quite common knowledge!!!
