  6. Suspension 1999

    I had BC coilovers on my bugeye made the ride a tad hard but the car felt more planted and responsive also if you just fit lowering springs you need to get all the suspension geometry set up so i would go for a full set of coilovers i know there a more expensive option to lowering springs but at least coilovers are adjustable for all road situations hope this helps as my knowledge is a tad limited

  20. I totally agree i went immingham docks last week and counted at least 3 ships discharging cheap russian coal onto the docks and i have a bit of a confession i had the RS tiger stripes you mention on my RS turbo the era of the hot hatches were fun times nearly every manafacturer bought a little something to the hot hatch party even rover tried with the mgs and that didnt go too well lol i had a renault 19 turbo williams was a bloody brill car loads of fun lets hope someone can squeeze the performance we all crave out of a 1ltr turbo lump but i guess its highly unlikely
  21. Well its all gonna go wrong soon we need electricity for re-charging all these eco freindly cars and our goverment have closed or mothballed all our powerstations so how long will it be before they have to bring back on line coal fired power stations like DRAX in yorkshire i know for a fact that ratcliffe on soar powerstation burns 10.000 tonnes of coal a day just for generating electric for normal use so imagine in 3-5 yrs when were surrounded by electric cars and the power stations are all burning more coal to keep up with demand i know there are energy from waste plants that are in use but it still takes 100s of lorries a day to feed the incinerators so again when were electric or hybrid more trucks will have to be on the roads to keep up with demand i agree it will be a sad day when turbo charged petrol engines are no more i miss the old days of the cossies escorts and such like but this is so called progress and its SHITE so i think we should keep our scoobs going as long as possible and sod the emissions
