    that Noble is pretty fast !

    One of the things i really love is hitting redline before shifting, I usually do that in aggressive driving but in a race ? No.

    That Noble left that Gallardo in the dust! Awesome.

    That would depend on the power band of the car. If the car makes power all the way up to redline, no reason not to hold it there to keep from falling further down in power on the up-shift.

    Yeah but hitting redline repetitively doesn't give you more power.

    The Noble's weigh nothing and have awesome turbo Ford powerplants. They can be made ridiculously fast.

    I considered getting a Rossion Q1 for a while, actually put my car up for sale:

    LOL, no, it is a more "civilized" version of the Noble for sale in the USA: http://www.rossioncars.com/

    Yeah the Q1 was on my list too but they are so rare that I'm not convinced I would have a good experience owning once. If something goes wrong, what do I do, ship it to Florida? Otherwise it looks like a beast. There is a Noble in my area. It is a cool looking car but it is very small and the interior is a joke. That's why I liked the Q1. Plus it is mod friendly. There are forums for them but I never had the time to check it out and see what people think of them.

    Someone has to be the first. Same with Jody (v12godspeed) doing a V12TT swap into the E55. It took him a year but now he has a 1 of a kind monster.

    Anyway, this Noble is pretty fast but for a modified track car, it's not a world beater. The Gallardo it is racing is very slow. Put a 458 italia or 570 Superleggera next to it and you will still think the Noble is fast but not gut wrenching fast.

    I actually have shops that work on Nobles around me so for me that wouldn't be a problem.

    The only reason I did it is because of Bimmerboost.com. Also, because I can and to show what the best modern BMW platform really is.

    Just a little bit longer... patience.

    My buddy is good friends with the owner of Rossion here in florida. He actually got to test drive one. They make pretty $#@!ing fast cars, not well known but only the true diehard track racers get a rossion, because thats what its for.

    I also got a tour of the Mosler factory here in riviera beach florida. thats a story for another day
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
