I hear they can also pull 1.37g's on a skidpad at Road Atlanta.

We need to bring back the Skidpad Challenge. Fun stuff.

I test drove one years ago: very heavy steering (recommended tire pressures were extremely low!), bad scuttle shake (the car's a flexi-flyer) and the clutch was a light switch (engaged or not - no smooth slipping for smooth take offs). I was also warned by a previous owner of rapid clutch and brake pad wear. Sorry, no.

They made some mistakes on suspension on the cars (if you've ever been behind one that is attempting hard acceleration, it looks like a female dog having a pee) but the thing that puts me off is that the carbed version is a faint replica of the real thing - the petrol injected home market cars had 150 bhp while the ones we got had 104 bhp.

While I can't think of a British sports car in the period that didn't have flaws, I'd rather have an MGC (which had handling faults itself but they were easily remedied and at least they had 145 bhp even with the horrid intake set up the stock ones came with (of curse the one I owned had 175 bhp and handled far better than when it left the factory, so I might be prejudiced).

I owned both live axle and IRS versions of the TR4 and preferred the live axle ones.

If your going to mention "iconic red stripe tires", maybe the featured car should be wearing them?
