Re: [DML] Re: Car show brochure uploaded

I guess the guys at R&T didn't do their homework or they got a really bad 
car to test... or maybe they couldn't drive a stick ;)
Either way, 10.5 seconds make the car pretty slow. 8 seconds... well, it's 
not so bad anymore.
I don't know, maybe I just happen to have an exceptionally fast car ;) And 
as I said it was 100% stock including the air filter, airbox, old OEM Bosch 
ignition coil and so on.

Take care,
