    Joe,

    Not sure

    maybe someone with more technical knowlege than me can help

    They take quite a while to download.

    Try right clicking them and then "save as"

    I think you need to have a quick time player

    If that doesn't work I can email them to you directly if you have broadband.

    Paul,
    you are spot on....Carl Verdi booted it up the hill losing traction at the bottom of it.... i spoke to him on Monday and he said he felt the back end going and just kept his foot in for fear of what might happen if he lifted!

    I have been studying, had a few exams last week.
    Plus my old PC died for good which was perfect timing, it gave me the opportunity to study instead of coming here !

    Now im back !

    Great videos Mark !!!

    I unfortunately missed this action as I left early.

    Now I don't want to be controversial but from the videos, the stradale sounds better to me than the F40 ! What do you think ?

    Philip

    P.S. an old texan saying is "the only things in the middle of the road are yellow lines and dead armadillos"... so straight opinions are appreciated :D

    Philip,
    the CS sounded magnificent, but to be far to F40 there wasn't enough road for those turbos to kick in fully and unleash the full sound effects..

    A Stock F40 wont sound as good as a Stradale. In Fact a stock F40 doesnt even sound as good as a 355.However an F40 with Tubis LM and straight pipes is a completly different sound....

    We should get Carl to come to Bruntingthorpe in the F40....now that would be something to capture on video-F40 & 360 CS at full pelt ....
    What do you think?

    Yep it need the Tubi LM and Straight pipes to sound great.
    With Tubis it sounds just good...

    Joe - the car was wearing a *copy* of the Tubi Intermediate. I've ridden that car many times (thanks Carl) and it's still wearing both it's cats and a silencer.
    Trust me mate - the Tubi LM (open) exhaust and test pipes for the F40 is INSANE. Carls F40 currently has a very road legal setup (I ought to have a word with him). The setup above is WONDERFUL....
