Naah! NN's car was unusually slow because of the dala weight and the fancy new big shoes that he had just put on. Also the wide angle GoPro view appears to exaggerate the difference. Ironic that NPP was running heavy 33s and SK light 30s, as a few years ago each one of us would have sworn that this would/could never be the case
The two bright sides of the video (many thanks to NN for shooting and posting it) are however that
(i) On a tarmac drag the UZi can probably hold off a well chipped VIGO, until third gear at least.
(iii) On a good day, UZi and SK can perhaps match gear shift times on GDV's sequential trans Dakar Hilux, at least on up shifts!
Hmmm, thinking about it again, maybe you are right: F'aye Indeed !
