    I would probably kill myself in that....by ragging it around obviously. You have to think though, how would it drive when you have a hangover?!

    First day with it today so I've been taking it easy... the clutch takes a little time to get used to, it's pivots at the bottom (very strange).

    How do you mean? The pressure needed on the clutch varies depending on depression level?

    No.. I'm used to pressing the clutch with my toes while keeping my heel on the floor, you can't do that easily with the TVR pedal, it's more a case of putting your entire foot on the pedal.. bit like playing a drum kit bass drum.. (if you get what I mean)

    Ahhh, Got you! Odd that. I'm sure once you get used to it, changing will get quicker.

    by the end of my drive home it felt much more natural... It was a bit of a culture shock putting it in the garage then nipping to the shops in my Focus :)
