Mclaren and Mercedes will eventually split.
Not yet and definately not before 2011. However, I think Mercedes pushing to power Red Bull next year and then have McLaren veto them didnt help Mclarens long term chances of Mercedes Power.
In the end Mercedes will wait till 2011 when the economy is better before they sell and get good value on their investment rather than a certain loss if sold now.

Nissan's are renaults in a new overcoat. Their cars are dogs, fall apart when you look at them. The 350z has a turning circle bigger than a bleedin' bus for heavens sake. Mazda's are far superior in everyway and putting both cars in one sentence together just goes to show how much you do not know about cars Fred1.

My Honda Accord kept going back with a knackered turbo ( it was only 2 years old with 40k on clock ) It used to blow black clouds out of the back everytime it was started.

Yes, they supplied good engines in the 80's and early 90's for F1, but times have changed.

Could this be an all Merc engine series ! ! :rolleyes:

Fred have a look what a 2.0 4 cylinder S2000 does to a 3.5 litre V6 350z on a race track.

Honda per litre can claim to make the best on the planet!

An NSX is a 3.2 litre V6 and is in a totally different league to the nissan 350Z.
Yes Honda interiors arent amazing but there "halo" products are fantasic and unsurpasses in their class. Even when compared to turbo opposition honda still perform well

Yes mazda'a are primped up fords, but better designed, better handling. Mazda have taken a good ford model and shaken it up and tightened everything. the 2 is far superior in everyway to the fiesta, the six outdoes the mondeo from start to finish (I have a ford focus vetec estate, best car I have ever owned)but if I had a choice, I would probably have a 6 diesel for sheer brilliance

MX-5 understeered?????? :?

Every track day i go to i see MX-5's oversteering!
They are sweetly balanced chassis that could do with more power but still able to get its bum out if you coaxed it hard enough.
You didnt try hard enough my friend.... :)
