    i know these threads are like marmite, and to be fair i dont really care for those that disapprove :)

    Just come back from Lancaster this afternoon and had a play top end with a Vectra VXR which i happily pulled on at the top end, i thought id lose really bad as they have mahoosive engines and decent stats :)

    Then came to some lights with three lanes leading onto a duel carriageway, scooby, New Mini Cooper S clubman and me..... well the Mini was left for dead...... the scoob had the usual sized exhaust, STI badges, bigger STI scoop - to be fair there wasnt a lot in it, when i was in front i seemed to be able to pull away slightly, i then let the chap pass me for which he slowed down and gave me the thumbs up side by side..... then proceeded to boot it (you could seriously hear the exhaust, extremely loud), for which i happily stayed with him without too much fuss, all the way to...... ahem, thats where we will leave it ;)

    would love to have a play with one of the other scoobs just to see how i fair - conclusion, this is the second bug eyed i have been against, the last i lost slightly but this one today i had a better result, it also seemed to have some sort of custom front mount that was on show too so i assume not standard

    Was one of the divers there called Matt, i know someone whos into diving there. Him and his Mrs do it. Matt and Becky. He's a lorry driver. Unlikely, but worth an ask.

    LMAO!!! (its a GT30 btw)

    Inters... bring it.... lol

    Sorta on topic.... I left an 05 plate EVO for dead saturday evening from lights.... he got the jump on me from the lights as I wasn't gonna go for it if he didn't, started rolling and he lurched forward so I stuck my foot in... I was a good couple of car lengths from him while in third and still pulling away grabbing fourth but I was approaching a ford focus driving at a leisurely pace in front of me so it kinda put paid to a total annihilation sadly.... no idea what power the EVO had so guessing it was a bog std one... might not be that impressive I guess but was pleased as my car isn't running at its best atm and the look on the blokes face when I steamed past in second was priceless...
