    Nah, that battery is usually good for a few months without any form of trickle charge etc.

    It's one of those red top batteries, I must have got a **** one lol.

    Of course they're not slow. They're just as good as a good driver making slick shifts in a manual.

    Of course, they're faster than a crappy driver doing bad changes in a manual, which probably explains why you think they're so fast.

    Cheers mate! If I had power to the garage then I would have had one of those 15 years ago. :D

    No power there unfortunately, so I normally use a 5W solar trickle charger that works a treat! I think I got 5 years out of the last battery which is great.

    The solar charger buggered up, it lasted around 7 or 8 years which is good for $50. I purchased a new one around 12 months ago but haven't got up on top of the garage to fit it yet.

    This rain is clearing next week, so I will charge the battery next days off and get up there and fit that charger and we will be right then for another 5+ years hopefully lol.

    That's a significant back-pedal from your previous position, so thanks for admitting that you were wrong.

    I've no idea if that's true - Moretti hasn't taken me for a drive in his car yet... :p

    The gear changes sound just as quick in Michael's 355CH in-car video..............maybe even quicker when it's a straight down gear shift. :p

    What? It's what I've said since forever. It's as good as a good driver. Nothing more. Sometimes slower. Also, no mechanical empathy.... The changes are awful

    That's why it's got Cavallino's where it shouldn't have as well.
