  • My MX5 was hideously underpowered and painfully slow! But it was like driving a go kart. The trouble was, it was so go to drive, you always wanted more power. The chassis screamed at you. 'Come on! I can do MORE!' but the engine was always. "F*&£ off, that's all you're getting!"

    • I ended up with a 15 reg Focus ST3! Wrote a few articles about it actually! ;)

  • Thanks Ryan. You're right! BHP is terrible benchmark for your car, I suppose that's really what this video was about... I just find it psychologically difficult to want to go down in BHP. I know it's silly! To be fair the Abarth 595 Competizione 180 BHP is the current front runner and I'd be giving up 50 BHP for that, but I DO think it will be more fun to drive.

  • Good video mate, brave to get on camera, and away from the written stuff.
