Myth 1

Ferrari 328's all have the same size boot......

well, actually, No they don't!

Catalytic equipped cars have greater heat insualtion and air circulation around their exhaust, and therfore have a shallower boot than non cat cars.....

here's a cat equipped aussie 328....

the boot is about 355mm deep maximum, and also has no corner pockets due to extra control systems.

Non cat (uk/most euro) cars, just like the 308QV's also, have a boot about 400-420mm deep, depending on how good the rubber is!

Now, of course, certain dipshits wouldn't believe me if I said it, so here's info from a dipshit in the dipshit approval circle...

We'll get to that now then shall we?.....

Myth 2

Single piston floating caliper brakes are no good.

WRONG. It has nothing to do with no. of pistons.

A Ferrari 328 is heavier than a 308 AND much more powerful, yet they use the exact same size tyres if using the 16" option on the 308, and have almost identical suspension etc (early 328),

A 308 has twin piston calipers all round, but a 328 has single piston floaters all round.

The 328 stopping distances are much shorter than the 308. This is because the 328 has larger surface area of friction materials, which allows greater heat dissipation and greater modualtion control. it has NOTHING to do with no. of pistons.

(I'm looking for test data, if you find some, please post it up!)
