hey also.. dont know if you guys noticed on the 2nd episode of top gear, when hammond was moving the aston martins to the 'uncool' section of the cool, you can see that they placed the Mazda 3 in the uncool section!! this happens at the 50th minute in the show.. check it out on bbc iplayer..

You have read Clarkson's 3 review haven't you?

As for the Evo and WRX, they were about 4 secs quicker than the 6 MPS, would the 3 have stood a chance?

I was not talking about a shoot out with those two cars specifically, just my general frustration that all hot hatches seem to feature on the show accept the MPS, Literally all of them!

There is of course one plus side thanks to Mr Clarkson not putting the MPS on the show..

The MPS keeps it stealth factor to the masses, so we can still blast past the unsuspecting GTi driver who is still oblivious to what was in his rear view mirror....
Or even more fun, the WRX or EVO who was unsuspecting as they tootled along until this blur passes them...  ;D ;D

   .............  that's the idea  ...........    ;) ;)

saw a mk2 escourt estate today next to a juicy superbike. As bike accelerated so did car and gained on him, bike hammered it so did car and kept up !!!  Pulled into garage and both in there, biker goes to car and I thought punch up due, but they laughed and hoiked up bonnet. Whatever it was was'nt 70's standard ( chromed/ 6 pack / the lot ) and explained why the equal competition. The estate was pure 70's with no indication except for some aftermarket alloys, even paintwork looked a little worn but cared for. did make me laugh as well.

Either they had an absolute beast under the bonnet, or the biker had a broken wrist, seeing as most superbikes will do 0-60 in well under the 4 second mark.  I've not met a car thats beaten me away from the lights when I'm on the NSR.  But then again I've never met an MKII Escort with a Rolls Royce Merlin under the bonnet.........

wasn't the merlin. I think it was a high tune small block V8; but it certainly shifted. Could have been shock on part of biker that mean't he didn't give it all.

John Dodds car was a hand built job around the Merlin with a dual auto clutch of some type. Last i heard years ago it was burnt out on a motorway somewhere, but according to this article is still on the go. Dodd's had a Flying Lady on the bonnert until RR took out a court injunction and stopped him using it. One story I heard was that he was chased up the M1 but all the 3.5 Rover of the day could do was watch it disappear into distance   ;D ;D
