    What a waste of time all that fighter pilot stuff was, just give us more Vicki if you need to pad the program out for an hour.
    "Haven't you ever wondered if a fighter pilot would make a good racing driver?"
    No not ever, move on.
    Thought that Harrier was pretty slow 0-60, they need to get it chipped.

    They've gone a bit Topgear for this series, with the timed laps and special features. Nothing much to do about cars, but JC and crew make it more entertaining for me, even though most of it is fixed lol, VBH lapping around in the Porsche is nice though. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Thing is, it'll carry on accelerating at that rate to Mach 1. The top speed is a factor but not on Harriers, the missiles they carry will do Mach 4 and nothing can outrun one of those

    Not even a chipped Saxo?
    I've a heard a few that are certainly as loud as a Harrier.

    with no grip 3 secs is feasable but suprising

    thing i like about this show compared to tg is that the testers actually talk about the cars, and the stig is a bit of a silent partner

    I loved Tuff Noodle's acidic comment about airfield circuits that didn't test a car's handling and the look VBH and Pluto gave each other as if to say "Oh, you bitch...!"

    Yeah, TG are really missing a trick there, we need to know what Stiggy thinks of all the cars he's driven, rather than just a lap time.

    I thought 0-60 was pretty quick considering it weighs around 15 tons!

    plus i think its a sub speed of sound plane so it wont reach Mach 1

    Depends on air pressure of the day, altitude, flight conditions - dive etc. You are right, technically its not but under certain conditions can achieve Mach 1. No ramps on the engine intakes so it can't go much quicker than it does. Conventional Jet Engines don't like air being rammed into them at mach 1, they use ramps to slow things down a bit and "fool" the engine in to working above those speeds.
