forgot to add............went on a little jolly yesterday, about 6 miles(on trade plates)

it drove remarkebly well, only problem is the ETCS.have to push the accelerator to the floor to get it to rev, but it got to a sprightly 100mph, before realising that

a. non street legal race car, painted matt black and dayglo orange

b. public highway and amazed other road users

wasnt a good idea

as the car is much lighter now(about 400kg), AND MUCH LOWER AND STIFFER!!! the steering is so crisp and responsive, the handling is........well pretty dam amazing, however, i am a little concerned with the brakes......there too dam good now.

as the car is lighter, it doesnt take much to get them to (lock) activate the ABS

and it sounds pretty good......
