    Crikey I can understand it being a handful being a 400hp turbo setup.
    Must have been a fun build and fun to test!

    It was an old post, I think you'll find Monaro-Express no longer exists but the results are here - Look under May 2105 I think is the one?

    I've met the owner (in other cars) at traffic lights a few times. It's in Canberra now, yet to see it in the flesh. I'll get some pics when I head to the local hillclimb...

    If you hop onto youtube and do a search for '205 Mi16 Turbo' you should come across a short video of the little beast idling in my garage. Brendan also found it hard to rev hard past 4K rpm because the torque punch is plain scary. Lets just say that JR is an evil man and I am not much better.

    try pasting this:

    It was and remains, very well loved. Barely noticed on the road by most but that was a good thing, even the cops couldn't care.
