Navy, unfortunately not (assume the SAS don't use 'em)(unless they also drive STi's of course...) ?

... although... :idea: ! Tthere is a shipping yard in this town making icebrakers... what 'd you think ?

Anyone any idea how big the anchor needs to be to stop a 1500kg car driving 70 to 80mph ?

On the pads, still would like to hear your thoughts as:
1. the problem always occurs when it's 0 or positive degrees (otherwise you wouldn't have water on the road obviously), and that happens often in UK.
2. I DO plan on moving back to the UK later this year !
3. I am a bit of a carnut who likes to know anything about them 8)

Thanks !

PS: Why don't you start by getting out of your drive at 70mph in dry wheather first, just as a first practice ? :wink:
