Well had a quick opportunity with a fellow Viva owner to go and do a rolling road session, needless to say one of us is over the moon the other is not so much so. Martin with his V8 powered HC topped out at 181 bhp and around 200 pound of torque. I howebver only managed 53 bhp which is 12 down from last time. I am sure I can say its all about this and that, but the fact is I have just not looked out and worked on Marvin at all in the last few months and it shows. It also categorically proves the Nikki is a bag of crap. However it did sound good.
Here is Lily (Martins car on its first power run).
Here is Marvin on his first run of the night, not his best but hey he is 46 years old, and using that useless Nikki carb!
