Hairyarse

What did you do to your VR6 today?

Recommended Posts

Good news 'Hairy', it seems it was a false alarm. fumes were colourless, and pull was ok for 24 degrees air temp. ( paranoia is a terrible thing ) though it might just be down to the fresh 10W-40 shell helix I topped her up with... :) thanks for the good wishes..

i managed to nearly hit a lorry up the arse when he locked up behind a car.... smoke comin off all his wheels n everythin.... glad i have brembos... ;)

Then i got locked in a car park, had to bump it up the curb, through two bollards and off the other side (quite a challenge with mine as low as it is)

Then i neary hit a fox that ran out infront of me and had a race with my mate in his new vr, to then have blue flashin lights on half a mile later.... did i s**t myself or what.... but luckily not after us... PHEW!!!

It was all goin on yesterday i can tell ya!!! :) :) :)

Erm, just about to take her for a spin now... BTW is there a glossary for this site, just to help newbies & mechanically challenged blokes like me get a headstart with some of the slang / abbreviations ? cheers... ( some of it's more obvious than others ) :)
