Re: my go-cart can beat this!! ok if we're talking size, i'm 201 cm tall and i currently own a 1978 mini clubman gt (1275 cc) and i can happily say that it might not have the best accelleration - although its pretty awesome for a 1275 - through tight twisty bends it can whoop tha arse out of almost anything. for example, my mate owns a 1976 holden ute with a 253 cubic inch v8. in a drag race, to be honest there isn't all that much in i till you hit like 120, and then you come to some of those lovely schicanes in the road and it leaves it for dead. ok so i sound like a petrol head..... aren't all of us here? and that crap about the mini not being an icon and never being one, i think we all know that thats a crock of shit son't we.
