    Jacques Swaters began his racing career in 1973, what half-wit wrote the captions?

    I think it's just a poor English auto translation and the "his" is actually referring to the 1972 car starting its racing career in 1973, and not to Jacques Swaters.

    Awesome, beast of a car!

    What's so special about that ? :confused::rolleyes:
    I usually drive all Daytonas harder than that on every road test and always assumed every owner does too. :p:D

    That's the difference between the owners of their multi million pound car respecting it and a mechanic thrashing and abusing a car that's been entrusted to him to look after it.

    Jesting about ragging your customers cars and trying to make light of it after does not mean you have a sense of humour, but is actually very sad!

    I remember following that car on the way to Moroso as it was driven by one of the Cottingham brothers. I enjoyed every stop and red lights as he would give it the beans.

    Being a great mechanic, entails being a great driver, otherwise you appear as
    the fools on BaT that drive like my grandmother.

    How would you know if the car is not acting well at redline, by hoping? :rolleyes:
    Do you assume racecars, are 'mollycoddled' on the track?
    Great thoughts...

    Besides. you make it sound that it is a Jiffy Lube, et al, mechanic, driving your priceless VW / Prius?
    They, DO NOT rev up. Just like my grandmother...:)

    And, even those have a redline, and at times if there is a miss, don't you think the tech / mech, will rev it
    to make certain you can rev your 87 Hp to redline? Jeez...so much bellyaching...

    I love it, but with other cars around...even though they are going at a good clip themselves, 200kmh ++
    The difference between great autobahn drivers and idiots on all major USA freeways, me included...

    That definitely was a Dyno run, the motor is fully broken in now.

    Thank you for posting

    Regards, Alberto
