Just had Steve McH on phone from JZ, work all done, nice car, do I want this & that doing as well, blah, blah, blah. When do you want to collect?

Then the oh by the way....did you realise? He tells me & it's how the f**k did I never notice that. Irritating rather than anything else. Sad
And it can be a question in Sundeeps quiz on Sunday. Those going to Bedford are excluded as you'll probably realise it if you have all day looking.

One of the wheels' missing and that's why the handling's a bit off?

Someone replaced the engine with an 1800 from a VW bug, thus explaining your lack of pace?

Just be sure to bed them in properly... there's some great info on bedding brakes in here...

http://www.stoptech.com/tech_info/wp_bedinperformance.shtml

Once bedded in properly, the RS29s will be silent in operation (until they get unbedded Confused ), and their performance is unbeatable once they are up to temp. They do feel a little wooden when cold though so watch out under those conditions.

Well Sundeep now has the question for the quiz, so it would be unfair of me to steal the quizmasters thunder!

Plus it will be the only question I'll get right Embarassed

So true - many 911s have their throttle pedal set to <=95% max opening...
