I was speaking to an obviously intelligent and well informed gentleman today, who after telling me my HKS Super Drager was a "cherry bomb" and telling me his mates Escort had more horse power, came out with this warning that we should all heed.

"Skyline brakes and discs shatter, they is well known for it"

"Oh" I said "that's probably why lots of owners upgrade to Apexi 's then",

"Nah mate even dem go the same, Its well known for it innit"

Why the fcuk do they pick on me, do i look the type thats tolerant and easily approached ?

You know the really worrying thing about it all..... He was totally sincere and believed it and thought he was doing me a favour by telling me.
I should have stuffed his head up me cherry bomb, revved up and put some carbon monoxide in him

reminds me of....
I was working on an old ABBA 900 turbo, ages ago, when two young whipper snappers age about 8 and 10 approached on their bikes, "the turbos shagged init, they always go its well know init" one suggested helpfully, "nah just a dogy vacum hose" I said offering some automotive education to these chaps who most probably would soon be working down at the local kwikfit. "nah definitaly the turbo their crap by dad said so" said the younger of the two brothers adding "give us a £50 an we'll burn it for ya"

eek

I once had a mate who knew a height impeded french cabbage farmer, who smelt and looked like a cabbage. He had a Citroen 2CV fitted with a Rootes blower that made it go that fast the smell of cabbage turned to garlic, just before the front drums disintegrated. If he had known of some mates timely advice he would not have joined the Gendarn-mary.

Is it the yoof of today or is it just a certain sub species, that I have only recently discovered. They point at the exhaust and laugh Ha Ha look at that. Did HKS make it for a ****ing comedy moment for half wits ? I wonder cos its a bleedin expensive joke.
Must keep away from places where the "Nova " types gather. Sittingbourne looks like one of those to me my friends, so I will pass.
Must nip out and check my brakes now.
