In a straight line they dont feel that impressive, but as a complete package they are fantastic. They are smooth, quiet and easy to drive on the road, and fast, responsive and awsome on a track - its the balance of comfort and performance that makes it such an awsome car grin

1.6 Duratec Formula Ford is quicker in a straight line and in corners. Even less of a chance of getting a fat bird in.... so perfect choice of a car me thinks laugh

No turbo is better wink

It means the torque comes in nice and gradually, not in one big lump as it comes on boost.

Its much easier and faster to drive an N/A car quick round a track than a Turbo'd car with the same power wink

i know i know. I was just being childish. I know the pros and cons of NA vs FI.

But youve got to love the will it wont feeling of a big turbo. You need to freighten yourself at least once every time you use your car.
