Got home late from visiting MWMBO (MomWhoMustBeObeyed) and find the newest issue with the promised tech tip section for the Abarth. I'm saving it for lunch reading tomorrow at work.

Then I turn on an old Top Gear episode & see Michael Schumacher come out as the Stig & when Clarkson asks what he drives, he says a Fiat 500. Clarkson asks if it's the Abarth, he says yes. So at least in 2009 Michael Schumacher was driving my car.

Just read the piece. I've had good orders through Eurocompulsion each time: Intake, Neu-f rear torsion bar (that he arranged to buy from a customer that had totaled his car before install to help him out), and Rallyarmour mudflaps.

Add to that Eibach Sport Line springs & short shift adapter from 500Madness, and it's a fun little car. Next Spring I'll add a chip-pedal-ECUtuner of some sort as recommended. The GoPedal from 500Madness is popular on the forums.

7hp from a Dodge Dart throttle body you say? That one I did not know.
