Since ive got the car back I cant seem to get it to over 2000rpm while on the breaks.. doesnt matter whether the break is on full or just a little.. is that normal?

Ive got new as tyres and dont want to ruin them up but was just trying to get them spinning a little and can't get any action... Ive tried in the wet too.. I remember on my old tyres it was easy as.. what is going on??

:)

Nice Fairmont mate. I drove one on factory gas while looking for mine, and I swear it was gutless.

I really don't mind paying the extra for fuel, I never knew any different.

The car is nice, pity about the stack.
