    An 86? IMO it's a very pretty car! I'd really like to give one a test drive.

    I think mine is the Cusco one. Fensport do a clone which is half the price (no Cusco tax) now. I didn't fit mine, but it looks pretty easy (you can get to it without even jacking up the car I think!

    Ouch indeed. Off the road for a few weeks getting that lot fixed. New bonnet, wings, radiator, headlights, aircon, a few other sundries.

    Luckily, it didn't actually hole the radiator (just broke the mountings), so I was able to drive home. Though it was a moderately wet day with a lot of filthy spray, and the washer bottle is behind the passenger side fog light, so was pierced, hence no washers. Not fun.

    Re: 20 years car development - huge leaps and small backward steps

    dude....you're doing it for real...not doing it on a PS4. You're out there, showing your car the track, and in this case some armco, but hey...

    in 10 years time you will NOT regret that. You will never regret it. I gaurantee that. It costs now, and it hurts the wallet,....but it's real life, and when you pile on the power of your electric sports car in a decade, in silence, with no drama.... you'll think "learned this the hard way "

    Not much track time recently. Trying to buy a house. On the upside, I'll have space for a driveway and garage rather than doing things in the flat car park...

    Or am I just missing a link to a table or something?
    I presume it's in the actual magazine which you have to buy. The website is just a scraping (by them) of bits and pieces with very little QA to check whether it makes sense. Sometimes they include the table, sometimes they don't.
