New DD and Motorsport car

Postby miles thomas » Sat Oct 29, 2016 4:34 pm

Ok so I have gone all modern this time with a car just 2 years old. I have had it just over a week and only done the work run but loving it. Not sure why this car hasn't been that well received I know it's not a manual but I must be getting old because I really like sticking it in D and just wafting along. Anyway I have a Spider for the analogue stuff.
I think the first vid (link below) gives a very good idea of the car and Chris Harris gives as always a fair opinion. And it's better than me trying to tell you what it's like.
The second vid is just a nice little look at how they nail them together in the Dieppe factory.

I would like to see how the car goes at Prescott and anyway it's a good excuse to use the launch control :D So watch this space I think it's going to be fun getting to know this car.
Not really had much time for photos but here's a couple and you can see it polishes up nicely ;)
