I'd love to put vids up of mine but they're on my web site with a rude name so I can't post them up.

So go to www.cruisew*nk .com and have a look.

Here's another vid, damn that wind noise really need to sort it out next time.

This one's watching the world go sideways in SW19.


It only looks fast because I'm going downhill! [:p]

Turn the sound up!

This one was coming back from curry in Southall last night [:p]

Was a bit of an impulse thing - roads were clear, CD in the stereo... Cheers to my mate Matt for the camera work [Y]

Yeah I know my windscreen is shockingly smeary [:$]

Night videos are really hard to shoot, it looks much darker than it was so you can't really see much [:(]

I could try shooting a little earlier next time but then the roads won't as clear.

Parcel tape! It was a rolling start anyway, not really a proper 0-60, didn't want to keep dumping the clutch. I did 8 runs and could smell burning when I parked up. Will post one of the longer vids later.

I don't drive like that all the time. The smell is normal, it's not a bad kind of burning smell, more like brake pads or summat.

Shiuming, I live fairly near Effingham (Esher), but there is a much nicer road than that one nearby. If you carry on down the a3 and turn off the next junction, then in the middle of Ripley there is a road going back towards effingham on the left, try driving down there when its empty/ at night, its sooooo much fun!!! [:D]

You can't hear it that well in the video but at 5K it's already sounding vaguely M3-like (just not accelerating M3-like...), and it's running out of pull. 5.5K is the highest I've evered dared take it, for fear of becoming part of the scenery.
