Some people are beyond help and their names are indelibly linked with the Darwin awards.

I laughed at the other car that appeared from the LHS and disappeared sharpish as well.

I just found that video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LlwKlR6jobg
I don't understand Japanese, but I find it interesting anyway. It's a review featuring a YNM and a BRG ^^

Neville's interpretation of MJK's original XJ13.

Just watch out for the naked legs at 0:36, 1:02, 1:06, 1:14, 8:29, 10:08 and 10:13.

Vote XJ13 for car of the Year.

Nice video, nice roads, and it's nice to see he likes it overall but I am afraid I would tend to disagree with a a couple of things he says though.
I may be biased but let's consider objectives things: he refers to a lot of understeer, and he demonstrates it at 9:10
https://youtu.be/AYxoXe8UEs4?t=550
The speed can be seen and it's about 50-60kph in a roundabout on a a perfectly new tarmac. Doesn't it sound weird that it understeer so much at that speed?! (and he says it doesn't like corners & so on!)

I suspect it’s all relative, the elan is a very neutral handling car right up to the limit. When lesser cars would oversteer, it doesn’t. So maybe it’s a perception of understeer more than anything actual. He needs to spend more time behind the wheel, the elan requires a different technique to most cars. My two penneth.

Reported yesterday...viewtopic.php?f=13&t=28069&p=360025#p360021

I made a DVD from the original VHS version. It doesn't have all the adverts that YouTube forces you into.

I have a zip file with the DVD components. If anyone wants a copy, send me your email address. It is a 500Kb file.
