    Rolling roads

    Went to Torque of the Devil in Uxbridge on Sautrday with a load of mates, about 30 in total, just thought i would stick my car on the RR to see what i have standard.

    Seeing as it's done 106,000miles and has a poorly flywheel, i was suprised to see that i had produced 136.8BHP and 236ft/lbs torque! Not bad for a 5 and half year old car!

    I then got thinking about how accurate that actually is, with so many miles and a poorly flywheel, i was hoping for around 120+, certainly not just below standard figures!

    What are people's thoughts?

    That's the plan

    Probably go for a bluefin superchips thingy, i just like the idea of being able to take it off and apply it to a new car if/when i get one

    Twice as hard?

    You mean a higher air pressure in the tyre?
