    very very well. :D

    especially with its new engine (still the original, just very very played with):)
    ive got a video of me chasing a serious racecar, 500+hp.... and keeping up....

    for about 10 seconds!

    thats a album of me racing last year.

    in that race series the car was running very low compression and absolutely bone stock. as even on normal road tyres.

    somewhat of a different beastie now, but i havent raced it this year (£5-10k in upgrades means i haven't been able to afford it!)
