I agree, get a 145 Cloverleaf for a grand, you don't get a better performing Alfa than that unless its got a V6 in it.

Defo not sure where you're coming from with this! Done my 'test' (all completely scientific of course) - flat out in 2nd approaching red line, change up to 3rd revs drop to 5000 and she still pulls.........but you say you've to wait for another 1000rpm before she moves i.e you've to wait til 6000rpm for some pull. Hmmmmm
