Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Was I In Heaven


Recommended Posts

well guys just came back from a rolling road day at jamsport in northampton, with plenty of ST and RS but what i did notice is all of the cars had various items fitted, for example my m8s st has the silver door handles (interior) however i only saw 1 other st with them fitted the rest were plain black or grey, also the bonnet struts which i thought were standard on any RS however you could see where people had fitted them to the RS or ST and still had the original bonnet stay.

seems like ford doesn't like consistency haha

all in all a great day, star of the day was an RS running at 608bhp at 577ft/lb torque :D got some cracking photos aswell.

Its useful to have - Even if you are not chasing big figures, it helps to tell if you have an engine problem, or if you modify your car in the future, even in a small way like a panel filter, to a remap or a custom exhaust, if it really did make an improvement or it was just a "placibo effect" / BS

It can also tell you not just the peak power/ torque, but what effect modifications have on the power/ torque curves (eg if you have a wider power-band than before) and the optimal revs to change gear (eg- should you "redline" the engine or change up earlier/ at what revs etc - for performance - this would ensure you are not revving your engine too high and wasting time/ fuel and increasing the stress on your engine un-nessisarily )

So it might be worth your while getting your car on next time
