Think I missed that one, we weren't short of sideways action on our route through the Forest of Dean, or in fact all the route :blush:

Haha!

I guess there is always one hey? :facepalm:

I fell victim to a bit of heavy braking ending up sideways on the SE run, caravan pulled out in the middle of the road just after a humped bridge! :facepalm:

But yeah, always one, bless him, he tried!
Lol, even my Auto can spin its wheels :laughing

Turbo, does it in 4th :th:

I saw that in the mirror, good thing we weren't going that quickly on the approach to that.

I think the only other potential moment was your car trying to exit the car park on it's own at the pub! :laughing

Good job we were there with the Adult Supervision! What's he like:).

I found it safer to hang back a bit. The wallowy handling (needs investigating) didn't help my confidence to push the car. I also kept hitting the overboost limit on my ECB. Must have different air compared to Essex! Had to dial it down a bit when I got the chance.

Kiz a Turbo will always bit a bit quicker is a straight line over a V6. you were only inching away on the straights and duel carriageways.

I could go round some of those bends quicker in my BMW X3 than you did in your tubby.

a dab of throttle - not a chance have played with Alan / Vinny / TLF and Chris many times and you were full chat on the straights.

I wasn't going to rise to this but enough is enough.

Pete, if I ever thought a V6 wouldn't be quick enough (which I didn't) yours and Mr Wedge's proved otherwise on Sunday, bloody quick even next to a modified turbo....and that noise, heavenly!

Although I think we did it in the opposite direction (I think) with snow and ice and a bit more gusto!
Yep. It's fairly obvious if you look at the Google Maps links I posted.
The bend sign is at 2:29 in the vid.

That's one of Alastair Cummins' vids.

Here's a couple of others in Chris Harris country. :)

And this one of one of Wales' most technically challenging B roads.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sABaqGvcmGA
A constant succession of blind crests followed by abrupt direction changes.
It really sorts out the men from the boys.

The vid begins just after the junction with the B4519.
That's another great road which crosses the military firing range at Epynt.

The minor roads west of the B4519 are true rally territory.

Very easy to get it all wrong!

Honestly Pete it was a dab of throttle! I think it's the way my EBC is setup, it's a bit savage! Next time we meet up I'll let you have a go :th:

And yes, I'm a wuss when it comes to corners when I haven't driven them before :blush:

Funnily my ebc was running less boost in the run out, 1 bar max.

Spinning up in 4th? you running plastic tyres?

something needs looking at if your having problems in 4th gear in a straight line on a near standard car!
I've never heard such 'proud' claims. :blink:

You are welcome to come and try it Jim :th:

I'm not making it up! And I'm running Toyo Proxes T1R's with good tread. And it's not quite standard!

Sure your not experiencing a slipping clutch thinking its wheel spin?

I didn't even have problems in 2nd on my old (400hp) car in a straight line (with good r1r tyres granted).
So your maybe pulling 260-280lb and spinning up 4th in a mid engined car.
Something sounds off to me.
