had a bit of a treat today - a day messing about on a state-of-the art hub dyno at WGT auto developments in middlewich :D

me, hunter, jb smith, james junior, mikeyrules, andy waine, mehdi were all there testing our cars out - with some interesting results. there were a few gatecrashers as well who turned up in some old bangers - a maserati 4.2 gransport, a ferrari 550 and a 355...




the pulcomobile





jb smith's massively modifica'd brera 2.4





mikey's spider 2.4





medhi's on the left, mine on the right





maser belonging to some pleb who owns a little backstreet garage in cheshire mangosomethingorother :lol:









mango's 1750 tbi, andy waine's brera s v6, fraser's maser



more to follow...

the guys get ready to test mine - no rollers, off come the wheels and the hubs get bolted to the dyno :cool:










shall you drive, or shall i?






then the exotica arrived...










complete with a stunning 355 berlinetta with straight-through stainless steel exhaust - to say it was loud is understatement of the century :lol:









this is why i'm an atheist - if there really WAS a god, there'd be one of these on my drive at home :cry:

Hahah knew you couldn't resist!!

Some great shots there Al, and a few dodgy characters caught in the act of car pornography :thumbs:

Obviously Mehdi was my camera man today, so we''ll have to wait and see how many of the 100's he took make it onto the forum!

I just want to say a massive Thank you to Mangoletsi for sponsoring today, as that was a very kind gesture and much appreciated! It was a privilage to be driving one of John's power-house diesels that produced some larger than life figures, (much to the disgust of JBSmith :lol:) for what is only the starting point of things to come.

John and Matt thank you for being excellent hosts, and it was great test driving some of the new creations, you guys really are building a fleet of powerful cars! ...and to WGT for the awesome dyno, (even though the 355 broke it :p) friendliness and hospitality that you guys provided! :thumbs:
