    i really cannot imagine how hard it is for those guys in the wet. I have an old SS with a big cammed race engine and it is loose in the wet and they have around twice the power, more torque and a lot less weight.
    If i could have a full time job shooting pests i'm up for over time.

    Interesting engine note to that Volvo.

    Nice to see a bit of variety again after all those years of only Ford and Holden. Even if they're all basically the same chassis underneath now.

    The Volvo looks quite good! I like that they've called it a 'Polestar' too

    This is how hard it is for them, but to be honest a tight well dialled car is very easy to drive and very predictable.
