PH Fish and Chips run


Kimbers

Recommended Posts

Myself and James are going to do the first Hoon of the season, with Pistonheads. To make you all aware of it, it's April 5th and everyone is invited. These runs are normally well organised with loads of great cars to drool over.

He'res a link, would love to see you all there as I'm the only Lotus right now (unless James ditches the Scooby).

Myself and James are going to do the first Hoon of the season...

Apart from the chip shop hoon SLEG did two months ago!

:)

Might be up for another 250 - 300 mile run to the chippy.

Will keep an eye out for this one nearer the day, so don't put my name down.

Nearly two thirds of my Elise miles have been wet so far, to the point i'm going

to be a 'garage queen ponce' for a bit and try to save some of my mile allocation

for the dry...

You would be more than welcome Paul. When I said first hoon I meant for PH East Anglia.

Cheers mate, will see.

:)

Met up with my local PH crew for a hoon once, very very fast folk.

Was not prepared to join in some of their overtaking mind, as it was

borderline suicide at some points, with oncoming cars diving for the

gutter - a bit like trying to follow Bibs actually...

Rumour has that Simonf might be bringing his new beast of an Audi out to play....

along with its attendant petrol tanker! :) :)

Simonf is coming out to play!!! and he will be bringing the new beast as you put it!

If you are bring your forrester, could i fill your boot up with jerry cans please?

Be a nice little race between the forrester and the S5 i should imagine - turbo Vs [email protected] off great V8!

Andy thats a fair point well made! But have you ever worked out what MPG you are getting from the Esprit? I know yours is Fuel Injected but mine (even without the holes in the pistons) was struggling to get 18MPG! even on a run (no mentions about half the fuel being on my garage floor please!) - the only saving grace is that the fuel tanks are huge!

PS i still think it would be a fair race as i can't imagine the forrester on full chat is economical!

Working? But it's a weekend. Then again, I used to work most (9 out of 10 I guess) Saturdays for a period of 12 years.

Simon, I worked out the MPG on a run to and from Ely area once (looking at a car for Botus) and it was achieving 25+, which I think was quite good, roof out, lots of air buffeting, not so gentle throttle use etc. The Excel isn't as good as far as I know, but hat's probably me caning it a bit more due to it's power being approx half that of the TE.

25+MPG! That pretty good - especially when you take in to consideration your not inconsiderable frame! I can get 25MPG out of the S5 but only if i am really, really, really careful and pull off in second into 4th and then into 6th and take the revs to no more than 1200rpm! The good thing is that it still makes a glorious noise even at 1200rpm! The bad thing is that it makes an even more glorious noise at 6700rpm (guess which end of the rev range i spend more time at!!)

Hmmm.. teh Exige S can do 30mpg if driven carefully...... :) Who reckons I can get through some semi slicks in a day? My last attempt at using all the tread on my tyres, in my Esprit, is still all the way out of Thickthorne!

Anyway lets keep the thread about the PH hoon.

I just need to put the near side rear damper and spring on, set the tracking, secure the steering column, put the tank cover trims in, and tighten the bolts on the bushes and I should be ready.

Yep, I'll pop over to yours Sunday morning then.
