Problems: ?t's been a very reliable car. But after my last outing on ?stanbul Park Race track I got smoke coming out from the number 3 piston head. It also idles very high. Gonna get to work and fix it.
Info: This car is amazing. I did close to 90 laps at the formula 1 race track here in Turkey. Mind you she is an old car but once we are on the track at ?stanbul park she becomes herself. Hugely stable, very keen turn in, holds the line, can brake very late.. just when you think you binned it.. just when you think no way we won't make it, she turns in to the corner and carries on.. I am just amazed that she can hold her own against top dogs like the modified scooby'ies and EVO 9's. Can keep up with an M3 or a Z4 Mor an M5 . She is bags of fun. The brakes which are horrible on normal roads come to themselves on the circuit. They are pure magic. For the price of the car the performance it delivers and it's sheer looks is amazing. I removed the ABS so this is about as analog as a car can get. ?ts not easy to drive but it's rewarding.
