    Felt super tight - steering wheel felt tiny compared to my 197, it has camber shims on so the turn in was nice and direct. Engine felt more raucous and generally less smooth than my 197 but more than enough power for the size and weight of the car. I've now driven stock 172s. 182s. 182 Cups and now the 172 Cup - 172 Cup is my slight favourite so far although there's not a whole lot of difference.

    Cool. I've had an array of 1*2's over the years. Depending on how they have been looked after they are like you say, much of a muchness

    It's more about if the mods that have been done to them suit your tastes, will be interesting in a few years when the more sought after Cup, LY and Inferno owners start to think about making them stock again.

    Car performed brilliantly yet again, do I keep it and keep modifying/ruining it or get something new?
