Excellent"other car", in a great colour,
does it have a split personality like other TVRs ?

Thanks everyone :thumbup:

Yep, as much as I love it, a bit of me is scared of it too. The way it can push you back into the seat under acceleration makes me grin like a loon, although I'm VERY gentle when driving in the rain.
The only "upgrade" recently was changing to racing suspension (Nitron custom built ones - had to wait 2 weeks for them to make them let alone fit them) which has improved the suspension which is a tad "wallowy" for the car as standard imo, and transformed it's handling to another level. It's almost telepathic now, the way even small flicks can correct any tail-happy moments :). Has made me massively more confident in the car and would recommend it over any other single upgrade.

These cars are starting to creep up in value now as well...the modern classic term has hit them now!
