  • My favourite trick

    This is what I love to do....

    Going along an 3 laned 50mph A road ... everyone slows down to around 50 to go through the Gatso lines. Just before going through engage sport, take it out of 6th, rev the engine to match the revs and pop it into 3rd (should be at around 3k revs). Whilst going through the last white lines, floor the pedal and keep it going as long as you like. The distance that results between you and the other cars can be quite phenomenol.

                  you might aswell not bother putting it in 6th for just 17mph. I think i have only done about 130mph and that is usually in about 10 secs when goin up the slip road to join the motorway. Up here there are cameras everywere you look and the weather doesn't help

                      You should try it with a remap at 70mph and stay in 6th. You'll be amazed at how quickly you get to silly speeds!! Great fun when diesels wants to have a go though with their "extra torque".You see that sign of a puff of smoke from the exhaust as they floor it and you just put your foot down in 6th and overtake!! Put it in 4th and you can really laugh!!

                        All this from a traffic copper just see what happens when you do it with an unmarked car behind you.

                        You just want to hope its Dave so you say well you told us to do it.

                            you want to try going from a vxr into a xsara and remembering that you dont have a 6th gear !!!

                            trying to ram it into reverse when you run out of 5th gear aint fun :wink:

                              Well you want to try jumping out of a transit van and into the vxr, it feels like your in a jet for the first 5 minutes. I reverse off my drive about 60mph and then slam on just as i've taken the neighbours flower bed out!!!
