I used to be able to take it flat out in my Ka (which had very wide tyres) - proof that chassis balance & anticipation is the delicate artist's brush rather than reliance on the sledgehammer effect of brute power. I used to be (and still am) capable of faster progress on that road (regardless of vehicle), than 90% of anyone else.


Yep I'm the same on quite a few roads I travel on regular, I know the cambers, dips where to tuck in tight where to drift wide can turn a boring journey into a joy even without exceeding the legal limit
