Did a very brave thing today

Sunny day and car going well, so thought it would be a good idea to spread the love and let my wife have a go!!!

I really wanted her to experience the heavy clutch and different driving position plus what it is like to floor it.

I have to say I was THE most nervous passenger and worst back seat driver you could imagine. Clutch is bedded in now though!!

SWMBO wasn't insured on mine
Eldest son adored it and shed a tear when I sold it

Good point about back seat 😁

My family is the same, my wife's opinion in particular is 'how soon after IVA will you sell it?'.

My brother in law and my mum are probably the only people (apart from me) who wants to see it being used on the road.

You didn't tell us what she thought of it.

The couple of times SWMBO ventured out as a passenger in mine (being driven carefully), she really didn't like it.

Noisy, windy, bumpy and way too close the ground!

Such a shame. My wife fully supports the kit car as a hobby and fun thing. We went out for loads of day trips pre-kids. She would never drive it though, not confident and thats not her thing.

She is a passenger princess, never drives unless she has to.





Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

Too many people staring is what mine all say. I love that everyone you drive past is absolutely buzzing to see it. They hate the attention!

I think she was quite scared of it really, mainly as it is so different from anything else she has driven before. Commented a lot about the throttle pedal position and very cautious with the quick rack. I think it's safe....

Mine is exactly the same, supports it (and the expense - although I'm still lagging behind her shoe/bag/clothes habit!) and is happy to be driven - fast!
