    I can't recall passing it but I also can't recall it passing me. No direct comparison. Just a pity the HSV boys were too scared to come out and play. Twisted Evil

    Well that blue Torana hatch was following me a bit while it was wet. I would pull away from it on the straights and then it would catch up a bit going into the corners, but it was wet and he may have been taking it a bit more careful than me, but there was absolutely no chance he was ever going to get close enough to attempt to pass. Was a nice looking car though.

    Those clips are cool CJ, the deffinately show how wet it was. It felt a lot faster when I was in the car though.... Have you got any from when the sun came out?

    I have a couple but the one I picked didn't upload to You tube. I'll have another go. I can tell it was quicker because Jenny had a lot more trouble holding the camera steady. Laughing Laughing

    Two things guys. When we put nasty things on here could we remember that the people we are being nasty about also go onto this forum?
    And the MK1 Escort is a PDQRESMK1 so CJ had an excuse. If he just had the equivalent suspension alone in his PDQ Jenny might have had a smoother ride
