<strong>I dont think any of us find it that amusing going "Pedal 2 da Metal". But it gives you an idea of what output your engine is capable of.
Nothing beats the sensation of drifting the car through a sweeping curve, balancing the car through the curve on the accelerator

shame there are no real good roads in Malta though.. its quite a bit of a risk to have a little fun with the car! still, we try to make the best of what we have wink
this is weird though, i dont think alfas are even suited for top speed performance.. As Hugo said, they can prove much more fun playing around in 2nd 3rd and 4th rather than top speed, and it does take quite a while to reach high speeds (180+) [i think?]
in other (bigger) cars its very easy reaching high speeds but then they're very boring to drive..
So i guess there's quite a lot of sense in what we're saying here?
