I havn't mentioned anything like moving the brakes to the rear, front should do the most of the job in breaking.
Nah , that was badly punctuated. Langers suggested it but you did say 'spot on' after
Clearly a 3000GT is the the Poor Mens Ferrari.....
Signed , +1 but I still love it. Need to rebuild mine at some time though.
I also had a GTO the import version of 3000GT. That's one of the best driving expeiences I had to day, even though it nearly gave up at a bend and nearly killed me.
It's an 18 year old car with no traction control , no ESP and no LSD(s). Needs a lot more 'respect' than an Alfa 159/Brera with all its electronic safety features
4x4 is great for traction in snow.... in a straight line - but which car is the fastest in snow... the lightest... a 60bhp '73 mini with m&s tyres is the best fwd in my opinion
Audi URO , it dominated so badly in world rallying from 82-86 that they had to change the rules and put all 4x4 in a separate class to FWD/RWD
its amazing how many 4x4 owners think thier car will be able to stop in snow! 2000kg and zero grip...
Never had an issue in the 3000, only big tyres and ABS. Using to go and play on icy roundabouts and go sliding on empty side streets when it snowed. Just needs respect and a little skill.
Incidentally , weight is not a factor in calculating stopping distance on any surface , only in the design of the braking system (including the tyres) to provide a coffiecient of friction
