Going fast top speed is not my thing. I come from a biking background (as well as owning tons of Italian cars over the years), so twisty, 2nd/3rd gear fast is more my thing. Pretty boring roads around here as I'm in Wandsworth, but a quick lunchtime blast down the A3 and around Esher made me realise that my 89,000 mile car is extremely quick. The only mods are Ragazzon rear, Eibach shocks and Q2 diff. I am really surprised at how quiet and smooth the engine is and I am fitting a straight through middle pipe today to go with the silenced rear. Do any SW London AO'ers meet and go for a drive? I remember back in the day we used to meet at Brooklands. What about Ace Cafe Italian Car meets?
