    A drive in a mini cooper s on the isle of man:

    "The engine whines as the supercharger charger kicks. The corner ahead starts comeing at me faster and faster,the speedos climbing but do i brake? No the car sticks to the road like glue and flies round the corner. Another straight and i accelerate up the hill. In to 6th gear the engine whining louder and louder. The speedo approaches 120, 130 the revs climbing and climbing the road dissapears under the tires, still going faster and faster the sports suspension rattling the sports seats sucking me in the cd changer blaring....."

    A trip to the local shops in a mini s. hopes this answers any questions.

    The Minis are actually Supercharged not Turbocharged, so they are a lot smoother than a turbo :cool:

    The law still applies to the big open country roads.

    As does the safety of others, Large stock commodores are not very stable at high speeds.

    If you want to race, I would suggest you go to a track day and race till your heart is content before you land yourself in jail and 5 year+ loss of license for reckless driving :hammer:
