That said, I've not dare experiment with the full-power mode as there's not been a dry day since I've bought it.

Edit to Add: It came with an aftermarket exhaust, so sounds absolutely epic. My neighbours, however, may not agree.

I now drive a chevrolet Cobalt SS turbo GMS1- 4 door, 5 speed
It is a proper driver even if it is FWD.
315 ft lbs. Of torque at the fronts, quick little demon. Its black of course. I forgot how to post pics. Maybe I will later
Quick question an espresso now or a regular cuppa?

I drive Renault clio 172's standard one as a daily and a turbo'd one as weekend toy which was 246bhp and 264 lb of torque but it's currently having the engine rebuilt so hoping to get 340bhp

Here's a video on the rollers

340bhp in a Clio? Is that a track car or road going? I can only assume you've done quite a lot of work on the drivetrain too - that's a lot to ask of a fwd car to get that power down. Should be grin inducing acceleration though

It'll be road going might decide to track it next year

Uprated clutch just now but looking into a VW gearbox conversion that's been done a few times

340 is high power but there's a few higher a guy in London has one at 500bhp and other is built one for 600 but that's a drag car

At the moment I don't drive anything. Recently I sold my 2003 Chrysler Neon. Full service history, rust free body, low K etc. Just didn't need it anymore since my route to work is really straight forward and I can almost walk directly from bed to bus.

I'd forgotten just how mentally exhausting the first drive of a car like this is! All senses wired up to 120%! I think I've managed to identify all the whines, squeaks and rattles as "characterful" rather than expensive...

I'm going to sleep now.

Any opinions about 2nd gen. Chrysler Sebring? I did a test drive with one that had 2.4 4-cyl engine. But it felt like the 2.4 is underpowered because the chassis is quite heavy and the four-speed automatic absorbs the rest.
I found there was no usable torque outside city limits. Is the 3rd gen. with 2.4 any better? Of course there are V6's available which could resolve this problem...

From the BT23 Brabham Repco to nothing for a number of years sailing around the Pacific, then useful things like utes & the horse truck.

Came back slowly 14 years ago when I built a TR7 from a couple of wrecks, which I still drive then a 4.6L TR8, & an S2000 Honda. There is even an Oz Capri I bought for a daughter who has moved on.

I don't seem to be organised to sell anything, so have a big shed.
