I drive very sedately 99% of the time, as it's sensible, economical and the car is ancient at this point.

But it's nice to put your foot down a bit occasionally, or when pulling out into a busy road you might want to maximise acceleration. I've always felt the car lacking in 1st compared to other, similar power to weight ratio cars I've owned, and now I know why.

if pulling out onto a busy road, you sidestep the clutch at about 2,500 and then short shift to second at 5k.

Sneaking up to 70mph on an nsl road isn't fast driving...

The only time a 1.7 puma should ever feel less than 'nippy' is if you're shifting below 5k tbh. They're cracking wee cars.

I might do it once or twice a year.

Conversely, I drive fast every single day. I enjoy doing it. Fast driving doesn't use first gear... Even the tightest corners are taken in second and above 4krpm.

The 0-60 metric is bullshit; it has no real world application.
If I was you Id take up formula one, and if you drive like that youd probably be the best in the country.

Yeah well I went down there the first day it opened right, and I did a couple of laps, I pulled over, the bloke that runs the thing comes over and said - Oi no professionals. I took my helmet off, I said I'm not a professional. He said - you're not a profesional? I said - No, he said - well you should be, if I was you I'd take up Formula One, and if you drive like that you'd probably be the best in the country! I said - I'm not interested I'm making shit loads out of computers.

I have got a torque removed ecu now and its a complete animal now off the line. It completely changes the car and makes it a proper racer now. I have the racing box as well which is strengthened 1st and 2nd gears so i'm a bit happier I'll have longevity.

It's the Pumaspeed map Ive got. my brother inlaws Puma(silverbullit99) car was so restricted in 1st gear that we thought there was something wrong with it. We tried the Genuine Ford modified TPS loom which help sharpen it up but was still not right. When he got the PS map the car is just awesome now. So sharp and aggressive.
