That’s true, I wonder if Barrett has got a Tapley gauge from those old road tests, then we can compare the cubic feet per ton mile for more accuracy :)

The original 0-60 seemed to have it hitting the limiter?

I think it was ironic 0-60 testing that caused my Inca to lose third gear. Don't do it kids.

Yeah, we'll just settle on a 5 second 0-60 time and do away with all further testing.

Great write up to all writer uppers concerned.

What’s the score, pop 50p in the ‘Replacement Gearbox’ fund and take it for a 0-60 run, attempting to beat the current top score?

Winner gets free fish and chips. Possibly.

One of the free GPS speedo apps for Android will calculate a 0-62 for you.

I’m afraid I’ve had an iOS phone for a year now and can’t remember which, but it might be worth having a look around. It indicated that my Avensis had lost about 3/4 of a second in 18 years and 220,000 miles.

Your gear changes are waaaay too leisurely and you roads are far too northern and consequently too shite.

We let Dollywobbler have a potter around in this last night. I dont think he was very impressed with it.

I don't think the car thought much of him either, as its popped the FUCKMERIGHT? Mot fail light on this morning.

I dont THINK the car even has an EGR so I'm going to presume its 02 related and ignorable for the moment.

Ive cleared it so lets see if it pops back up.

That EML light used to come on occasionally, I’d loosen and retighten the fuel cap and it would usually go. It always cleared itself anyway, I don’t have a code reader thingy.

It’s probably a sign that you need to drive it a bit harder
