Cool Just another wonderful morning in the turrrrbo!

Sorry, but I just had to reflect and share my driving experience into work this morning.

"It's such a perfectly crisp morning", I thought to myself as I slid into the plush black leather seats. Just like a kid with a new toy, I fired her up without hesitation, just to hear this monster bark to life and settle to a steady purposeful rumble.

For the first 10-15 minutes I babied her through the morning traffic, hoping I'd get a clear stretch of road to clear her throat a bit. The intercooler temp gauge was registering a cold 11DegC on the outlet and the throttle response was nice and crisp. She begged and tempted me to give her more throttle, but I had to resist until I got a clear lane ahead of me.

Eventually, the perfect opportunity presented itself. Pole position at a red light with the entrance to the FWY only 300m ahead of me I switched the EBC to the "insane preset" (1.2bar), gently engaged 1st gear and waited impatiently for the light to change. A few seconds before the lights were going to go green, I build up the revs just enough to get the turbo spooling and as soon as the lights changed, I unleashed the hounds of hell

The tacho swings to redline through 1st -> 3rd as the 285's struggle to maintain any form of traction. The telltale boost needle slams to 1.2bar in each gear as I fight the g-forces to reach for the next gear. The acceleration in this car is brutal, yet exhilarating.

It's moments like these that reminds me why I built this car. Uncivilised brutal raw power - There's really no substitute
