........... she can move
Tonight on the way to work i was under abit of pressure ot make it on time. Traveling 40 miles of back road [ r class in ireland, b class in uk ] in < 35 minutes, which is zoned at 50mph
Good twisty stuff, dry tarmac, fairly quite for the most part, barring the odd village here & there.
2nd, 3rd & 4th gears were used, for the most part, doing from 4000 to 7000 revs as required
Left foot braking for those long, or off cambered corners, top speed was 90mph
.... but what amazed me was not the top speed, but given the right *pushing* & left foor brake i actually felt very confident in the car when pushing on,,,,, something i have not felt before.
Admitidly i did did have a slow punture on the left rear for 3 or 4 weeks that i faile dot get fixed but did get sorted last week. Also my fornt discs have worn nice & smooth again, after my DIY re-surfacing a few months back.... so it all *clicked* tonight.
Damn but she is a little rocket to move .......... even a guy in a starlet turbo was hard set to keep to me on the corners
Let the good time continue.
