[COMPETITION] How fast...?

The car looks nice Bibs.

I was going to say 153 but that's been taken? Can we have the same as someone else or is it like spoof? :)

If so I'll say 153, if not 155. :)

Dear Sir,

I find myself at a bit of a disadvantage here. Does the Alpine unit measure in integers only or to decimal places? If decimal places, 0.1 or 0.5 increments? I wouldn't know and since you have not announced anyone getting it correct yet, (which you said you were going to do as soon as someone got it right) I can only presume that no-one has guessed the correct number to the decimal place. Even the cheaterbugs :harhar: who have entered a plethora of numbers which have generally included a previously guessed reading, effectively nullifying that entry.

So in finishing, from this point on, I can only assume that decimal entries will suffice so if the above incremental information could be provided, it would be greatly appreciated.

I have posted a copy of this email to the UK Lotteries and Gaming Commission, after speaking to them, so that there is no confusion as to my sincere intent for this to be a fair competition for all. I do not presume that they will contact you, though the Nurse Ratchet sounding lady on the phone did say that cavity searches had been performed previously on competition organisers to ensure they weren't hiding anything.

Yours in equitable competition,

Ramjet Colonista

(Esprit S4)

... and the winner will be the first to guess correctly.

I told my mum I shouldn't have written the letter and that it wasn't what you meant, but SHE persisted and threatened to ground me unless I stood up for myself. The letter was straight off a template of some little shareware program of Nasty Letters Inc. I mean I don't even drive yet (unless you count the PS3). I'm only 7. I just enter all these things on the internet trying to win stuff.

I didn't want to do it, but SHE made me. SHE said that those words means when someone gets it right it's all over. I said Bibs is a really fair bloke. Now SHE is going to take away all my toys and has told me I'm not getting fed for 2 days 'cos I back answered her.

I'm really sad. :cry:

Oh. I forgot. What's the decimal increment? :getmecoat:

157

Bosh! Winner :D

The car would have definitely gone faster, I'll be back to do it but it was a fairly busy afternoon so we kept coming up against traffic. First time we went over 150mph was on a huge long straight and the car felt fine, the brakes were ridiculously good pulling up from that speed. With a little confidence now in the high speed handling there were a few stretches on the journey where we maintained certainly 140+ for a decent period of time and it was very easy driving. Can't wait to legally drive at those speeds again :thumbsup:
