Didn't mtm do this before the twin engined TT (as seen evo this month, what do you mean you haven't bought it ? Get the to a newsagent )



I do have that copy of EVO. I buy it every month. The best car mag on sale. The reason I mentioned the Leon is because it's a Seat (I know that they're both just VW Golf GTi's underneath!) and I recall seeing it about before I saw the MTM BiMoto TT.

Surely not. CCC and Race Car Engineering are light years ahead in terms of technical content.

For mental 'why-on-earth' motors, CCC recently had an old mk1 Fiesta with a CVH engine fitted. With a supercharger. And a turbocharger. And nitrous.

No doubt you need to be one sick engineer to put yourself through the aggro installing that little lot in a Fiesta would cause!!

On the other hand, the MTM bimoto TT in Evo is pretty hatstand, whereas the german Elise with the proper engine makes a LOT more sense....

Right then! I purchaed CCC today on the strength of what you said. haven't read much yet but I was impressed by the Pikes Peak RS200 on the cover and the Scooby-doo Focus.

I was suprised by the professionalism of the cars inside. Dunno why but I had always thought that it would be about old men trying to shoe-horn larger and larger engines into their Lotus7 replicas.

Still prefer EVO tho I'm afraid. As far as sheer Drool-inducing cars are concerned it has to be the king!?!?!?!

I subscribe to both - two completely different points of view.

EVO is immaculately presented, fantastic photography, lovely high-quality paper, and some pretty florid writing (esp. Mr Vivian). However it is very much either for the dream-car brigade or the seriously loaded. Their track day franchise is very cool but also very expensive. The long-term test cars are split between Harry's expensive toys, 'normal' cars for the staff and 'guest' (presumably investor?) rich guys like Mr Yu and his bottomless pockets... But I'm not complaining - it's a fantastic magazine.

I only started subscribing to CCC after I bought the mag based on the Pug tuning guide (I've had a Pug 205 GTi track day special built). It's not as poncy as Evo and has better real-world technical info, esp. for making affordable cars go faster on road and track (i.e. there's as much detail on brakes and suspension as there is on engines). It's a million miles away from Max Power, whatever the article about the turbo'd, supercharged and nitroused Fiesta may imply
