Re: [DML] Re: Turbo PRV

Okaaaaay - not sure which bit you're supporting David on because I have 
said that the turbo'd GTA's have a taller 4th and 5th.... They are 10mph 
faster than the GTA Atmo which is identical to the DeLorean/A310 (no 
real suprise there!). The GTA Atmo's top speed is 145 and the turbo is 
155. They're also *slightly* more aerodynamic than our cars :-)
