  • Picked her up last night....

    ...and she is a beauty :-)

    Car drives amazing, more civallised at cruising than my CTR, but can feel the potential of the turbo already. Not given it full beans due to the boring run-in period, but it has seen 4,000 revs a lot.

    Keep getting admiring looks. Gave it a full tank of V-power last night, and when the guy gave me the trading cards, he asked if I would give him my car if I won the Ferrari

    My Mrs loves it too.....just got to find the ultimate seating position and all will be well.

    Should have done the run-in by weekend

      Lol...hoping that it will be a distant memory...as it was my second CTR.

      I replaced the first with a Beemer 330, but I just missed the raw pleasures of VTEC.

      I reckon the VXR will be a different story!

            Well.....managed to increase my revs a bit more this afternoon...as i hit the 100 mile mark.

            The power is almost instant, and I feel my inards getting squished together. So the power is definately there and feels more powerful than the CTR already.

            BUT

            I have a feeling I will be trying to rev to 8000 revs for the first few miles, having driven too many high revving cars for too long :-)
