my cinq on rolling road!

my pal mike had a vw rolling road day organised but some people pulled out so he asked if i wanted a go? 25 a run,so i agreed but decided to use my cinq for laughs and free advertising! left the mr2 at home! i got a lot of laughs from the big bhp vw guys but they were impressed when i was measured at 69 bhp with 70lb torque!!! not bad considering it's only got a k+n and a sportex backbox and it's done 90k!! the mechanic was surprised! what a laugh it was!!!
