Anyone planning to go to this tonight?
and people wonder why the Ace Cafe meeting has a bad reputation and why the police are not too keenThrust said:Some mad drifting round and round the roundabout, in between the Post Office articulateds, buses, trucks etc for the industrial estate. Crazy. One guy was drifting backwards across the roundabout and smashed into the street light, knocking it diagonally and smashing up his rear lights and bumper. He took off pretty quickly. A biker turned up on a brand new bike and stopped at the roundabout and a lady ran into the back of him, and while he was struggling to restart the engine, she took off into the distance, watched by several hundred people with camcorders!
Hi, Bean Yes, after a year of drama the car is finally roadworthy and I am heading to a friend's wedding in Scotland this weekend. Well, if the car escapes Croydon in one piece tonight...:smokin:Bean said:Hey Piers - are you finally back behind the wheel of the Soarer ?

New uprated single-turbo internals (28-37R), new Abbey-made GTR downpipe with removable cat, newly-ground manifold-to-turbo pipe, have all increased gas flow smoothness amazingly. Remapped with the Gold F-Con V Pro for UK fuel and 354 BHP at the hubs, 410 BHP at the engine, and the acceleration is as smooth and wonderful as you like. They have fitted the latest evolution of Exedy's non-slip-when-cold twin-plate carbon clutch, sent out specially from Japan in August. They have realigned the front wheels, given me new tyre valves because the aluminium dustcaps had fused chemically (and embarrassingly) to the old ones. And the Cherry on the Cake is the handmade carbon base-plates for the top of the boot/trunk which they've created to hold the carbon wing in place and stop it hairline cracking the boot/trunklid any further. These base plates are outlined with a ring of heavy black round headed studs and they. look. GREAT!
Just don't ask what the bill was... uke: :lamer:
