Ha, I watched that the other day. Spinning all four wheels is some incredible torque.

I've seen a few of Ken Block's stuff. :D

You into cars then?

Not as much as I used to be, but I still like things that go FAST......I also used to have some nice toys before the Ex-Mrs took them all off me  :cry:

I've seen that before and it is a good parody of him.....shame he can't drive a rally car with the same finesse as he seems to be able to mess about as it were. Just too much money I think!!!

I'm also jealous of my lad as he's doing a Motorsport course and when I went to enrol him I had a good tour of the workshops and then I saw the Mk1 & 2 Escorts

Always been a Ford man...when I met her I had a mint S1 RS Turbo spitting flames with a mere 365bhp on the 1.6 CVH block running 32psi of boost (SOLD as she saw a house she wanted)

My last car I had with her was a Mk1 Focus RS that had more spent on mods than what the car originally cost me (SOLD as I had to pay her off as well as her keeping everything else I owned)

A few bikes and that in between!

Wow, I bet you're well shot of her.

Anyway, I used to be into Ford as it was my first car, but I never got that serious with Ford. I went to a few meets, etc, but nothing mental.

I had a Mazda RX8 for a year which was a rollercoaster ride, absolute blissful handling in an amazing car, but cost an unbelievable amount for me to run (over £850 a month...)

I, a few months ago switched to my current 3L V6 Petrol Merc C280, which I'm very pleased with as it ticks all of the boxes.

I used to dream about having a Focus ST, or even an RS but I need something a bit more mature looking.  :undecided:

I've never been into bikes. Trying to avoid temptation to be honest.

How about an Audi RS4 or RS6. Mature looking cars and unbelievably quick.....I keep looking at them but think that it's way too much when it comes to servicing. IIRC a friend had an RS4 and it came in at roughly £2.5k for front discs and pads.

Looking for a new car at the moment but can't make my mind up as need an estate now due to having a BIG white furry fluff ball of a husky and nothing too fast as the new Mrs (This ones spot on BTW and the best thing that happened to me) drives it!

Nah, I'm a Mercedes man now.

My next car will be a C63 AMG. :D Mainly for that brutal god-like noise they make, which is just unbeatable...

Newer estates from the big 3 ze germans look very good IMO, shaken off that "old man estate, volvo" image...

I keep looking at Volvos for some reason lately  :undecided:

But the latest RS is actually a Volvo....the floor pan, body parts, interior engine, exhaust are all stamped VOLVO.

I'm in no rush at the moment!

Wow, they're both impressive stunts.  Always amazes me how much control and precision some people have.  I'm not brave enough to even try half that stuff in my car...don't fancy the repair bill  :undecided:

Yeah I love watching driving talent. Did you know the drift in F&F Tokyo Drift where Drift King drifts up the spiral staircase in his 350/370Z wasn't CGI? The stunt driver actually did it, first take.

My days of trying to be Colin McRae are over now. Although I did go to a quiet car park the other day to do a brake stand in the Merc.  :grin: How immature.  :rolleyes:

Not played it, so not seen it.  Sounds good though  :glad:

I might be selling the RX-8 soon to buy a cheap to run small car for the missus to go back and forth to work in.  Maybe a golf or something like that.
