  • I think I've just posted :D



  • Great post Famine :D



  • "was one of the worst handling cars I've ever driven." :shock:

    That's nonsense. It was probably based on a car with 4 mismatched cheap tires that was rammed up it's hole a few times.

    Oh, Famine: 1.6 DOHC - 108bhp. 1.5 DOHC - 120bhp (later ones 115). 8)

    **Yeah, I just ballpark it. I can't be arsed with even 5hp each way - it's almost impossible to detect and can be negated by a very warm or very cold day.

    The only way the MX-3 can be the worst-handling car he's ever driven is if he's never driven anything worse handling than an MX-5. On the other hand, since handling is subjective, he'll just be another of Pistonheads' anti-FWD crew (and there are many).**



  • Used to post on PH but it is like a TVR owners club.

    **There's quite a good reason for that. It was set up by a TVR Owners' Club.

    Generally, though, they're a quite self-important bunch. If it's FWD it's evil - like they all knew the Focus RS would be awful with 300hp and FWD and should have been 4WD and not a man amongst them has yet admitted to being wholly wrong on this front.

    I find they're largely the same bunch who used to populate the Impreza OC, Scoobynet. Their pet car is the best and nothing else can touch it - until they get bored of it and upgrade (generally to a newer Impreza, a Porsche 911 or a TVR) and then that's the new best thing. So long as you know how to deal with trolls - and those of you who know my other sites know that I do :D - you can post on PH.

    Still, give them credit. The MX-3 is rating well above average and at 65% (or 6.5 out of 10) it'd be enough to get a 1st class degree…

    (incidentally, there is one utterly awesome, must-read series of threads on PH by my good friend Reg Local. Read them - I'll dig out a link tomorrow)**
