Look if Nigel wants to skip directly from vibrant youth to old age, that's up to him... :lol:

I could take the Camry on the track as it has a "Sports Mode" , although would need to change the Brake Pads to ones with better bite on them :thumright:

Mate, the missus' Nissan Juke has a sports mode too. I still have to negotiate in advance with the corners in it.

I suppose he is in a position where he can gauge how it handles and performs in relation to his GT86 so must be pretty good to be a contender to replace it. After all im pretty sure Nigel has pushed his gt86 to the limits many times!

Something that you are all probably not aware of :roll: , but the ECUtek Race Rom is transferable to other cars and am aware of Fensport Mapping Toyota & Lexus Hybrids to get more power =D> =D> =D> =D>

I would of course need to buy another License at a cost of £160 but could increase the power from 218bhp to 228bhp give or take :twisted:

So get the best of both worlds :lol:

Nigel. Might be possible to get the gr bodykit as a separate item retrofitted if they don't bring the car over and then get fensport to work their magic.

The boot is slightly smaller than the FK2 but overall load space (with seats folded) is greater :p

But then I'm preaching to the converted :lol:

Have lost my Front Splitter and only a little bit of it left on the car :(

I did hit a deep flood this morning plus there are speed bumps everywhere around Croydon :!:

Anyway not replacing it again, as clearly it's not meant to be Image

Will get the little corner bit removed before the Annual Meet plus a few screws that are sticking out :!: :!:
