Puma may make a return......

What’s up with these car designers.They build cars taller heavier and dynamically inferior.Then try and give them a sporty image.And people appear to fall for all the shite the tell us.

Puma Genuine Ford rear arch protectors

A car may look mint but is full of filler.Best way to check is with a very small magnet.I always take one when looking at a classic car(except when it’s GRP or alli. :grin: )

Puma tuning - your experiences?

If it’s for track days then 10 BHP ain’t gonna make any difference.If you want to improve your lap times then decent brake fluid,some uprated pads (or calipers)and lots of instruction on track.That way you will shave seconds off times and get the satisfaction of getting round quicker than more power...

Puma tuning - your experiences?

Problem is “squeezing “ another 10 BHP from an engine probably means you only see it at 6 k rpm upwards so not much use in day to day driving.If you could find another 20 ft lbs of torque from 3 k then that would be sweet.

Running 205/50/15 boots

Don’t think such a small gain in tyre diameter would make any noticeable difference.As to engine sounding tortured I find the standard 1.7 engine is smoother running at 4500 rpm than 3500.Just wear earplugs ,I did 2x600 mile runs last week and had no problems .Find these little engines love spinning...

Revs at 70 and 60 mph

Not quite sure where this post is going! We all know a 1.7 Puma is slightly undergeared in 5th.Im happy to live with that.At 80 mph it’s quite bearable and if you do a long run(I will be doing 620 miles in a day next week) just get some earplugs which makes the experience quite surreal.
