Just thought i would pose the question really.

I reckon it would be a very close run battle, what do you guys think.
Not that i race on the public highway of course!!!

on turns the robin would have to slow down with only having one wheel at the front
so you would have the advantage there

Turn the chassis round on the Robin, so that it has two wheels at the front, and one at the back, and then it'll win for definite. :)

Isn't that what reverse gear is for... I'm sure it makes Robin go faster..

There was a Robin Reliant on Ebay a while ago with a VVC engine in it, if I remember rightly, on Ebay a while ago. Fancy your chances with that?

Its a Reliant Robin!!....... ie the name of the company is/was `Reliant` the model was called the `Robin`!!!...

Why people allways say it this way round is strange (Fools and horses?), would you say a `Focus Ford`, or a Astra Vauxhall`??........ or even a `25 Rover`..........
