FRONT RUN­NERS

Motor (Australia) - - THE VENT -

G’day, love the mag­a­zine. Es­pe­cially for its di­ver­sity and con­tent on dif­fer­ent per­for­mance cars.

I’m writ­ing in re­sponse to Peter Judd’s email in the Oc­to­ber is­sue. I my­self drive a mod­i­fied Fo­cus ST that has in ex­cess of 400Nm. It’s front-wheel drive and I en­joy the ex­tra in­put re­quired to drive such cars. Ac­cel­er­at­ing in first or sec­ond gear is a tyre-shred­ding ex­er­cise. What makes it fun is the ac­cel­er­a­tion and re­sponse in gears three, four, and five. How­ever, it does take a par­tic­u­lar skill to ac­cel­er­ate with­out wheel­spin. But I call this fun!
