>>20232492>How do tuscans / sagaris deal with -10 celsius.
Not sure, I had mine in a heated garage. I didn't baby them, but I did look after them and that meant very little winter driving. >What kind of cornering I should expect? Plan on tracking them so that is kind of important.
Entirely depends on which one you get. They're all lairy. Even the Sagaris, which is easily the best handling, is still a handful. If you're after a track weapon look elsewhere - it's far better to think of them as an English Viper than a Caterham competitor. You certainly can race them, but it's an expensive hobby and for a road sport car it's a bit of a waste.
That said, if you are into that there are numerous companies out there that will help you with race prep and give free advice. Which brings me onto the next point.>Are they reliable?
For what you're getting, yes. You're looking at a car that weighs less than a MK4 Fiesta with over 400bhp at the crank. They're not as well built as more mainstream efforts, but mechanically they're usually sound and if something does go wrong it's generally quite cheap. Cerbs are the most expensive to keep running, but considerably less than an M3 of the same money. The community is *excellent*, to the point where people will offer to come and help for free. It's a very good club to be in. Try doing that with the Porsche lot. I have, and it didn't work.
Chimaeras are reliable. So are Griffiths. Both can be easily repaired because of the sort of parts they use and neither will cost you much to run. Look into late models of either and avoid the 5.0 on the Chim, it's too cammy. 4.5 is the sweet spot. For Cerberas get a V8 (I had a Red Rose, which I sold two years ago) because whilst the Six is fast they're the same money, really. >Above everything are they fun?
Oh, yes. Licence losing fun. 185 and climbing between Bournemouth and Southampton fun. Vague steering in the wet near Hawes fun.
