    I now have 60 BHP jets, so 220 BHP
    Gas use is a tad silly though, 4 minutes for a bottle of gas !!

    Thanks, yes I can surprise much faster cars on trackdays with the amazing handling and brakes. I was called a Liar at one track day as the Celica GT4 owner couldn't believe it was just normally aspirated 1.7. If with a wiff of NOS that has seen him off..

    Love these cars they look like a proper performance car but at the same time the untrained eye doesn't know how good they are!
