Alright lads, not been on here for long time now
Just been busy with general life stuff and causing myself further injuries which has become a habit this past year
Life without a Pulsar.......Mmmm!
Almost 14 years i have been dealing with these cars now
No wonder im always stressed out
Can honestly say that they are addictive piles of shite that keep you coming back again and again for more hardship, torture & pain yet when they are running well and reliable (as they possibly can be) they are great little cars to hoon around in which always put a grin on your face.
Having said that there is a bad side to them too......
1. Even at around 380-400bhp they are not as quick as a lot of the modern stuff out there today, Mainly due to far too much transmission losses with people generally quote Bhp @ fly as opposed to @the wheels ''power you are actually putting down on tarmac''.
Many modern cars will beat a Gtir round a track with less power simply because of the way they are designed, cars such as a clio 182, Honda civic, integra type R, Megane, Bmw m series etc etc the list goes on!
I wont use one on track any more as they simply are Not reliable enough at higher Bhp which you do need to compete with other cars today. Having said that i still love them for what they are and the fact that there is not many about any more.
Since i stopped using one myself as an everyday car (which i had done for years) ive replaced with these........
Initially for everyday and track use
Brilliant car and probably best car ive ever owned for both track and everyday use.
Downside.....Very expensive to own and maintain even if doing all work yourself. Speeding tickets & more speeding tickets & finally Ban
Got to sell it in order to not get any further bans, just cant control my foot lol
For track use now i bought this
Supercharged type R ep3, which now looks totally different to when pic was taken
Simply Awesome and a real handfull to drive & control
For the road i needed something less powerful to hopefully stop me from getting speeding fines / bans every month. So i bought this pussycat
Running around 760bhp @fly its a Roush charged Mustang,
See with this car i can do 100mph+ without actually really moving (work that out
This makes it a much more practical daily car to use as i can speed on the spot
Lots of other projects ongoing including:
Sunny Gti with pulsar engine
Micra k10 with vvl sr20 (will be supercharged)
Calsonic R32 restoration - which will be 1000bhp+
Rasheen ongoing project
Plus a few pulsars we are prepping for sale, but will always keep one for myself as sometimes i feel the urge to suddenly drive one again
Oh and i forgot this not so little thing i bought to go to tracks etc with
13.5 ton Man Race transporter 34ft long, sleeper pod plus living area, sleeps 4 inside, kitchen, and soon to have all mod cons
Currently undergoing work / update to interior and modernise workshop in rear
