BUT when i got my valver it was the fastest of my crew of mates cars!
However since then a friend has brought a 5GTT which when healthy(!) kicks my arse! And now another 2 are planning on getting VTEC CRXs!!! Both of which will kick my arse!!
Obviously my 16v is fast - it sees off all the supposed hot hatches; ie novas, corsas etc..
However i want to be able to shock the big boys in their big toys and my car doesnt come close!
Perhaps the fact im on 17s with half a tonne of ice is slowing me down!? Perhaps i was unlucky and got a slow 16v!? Having not been on the rollers or a 1/4 mile run its hard to tell! Or perhaps i am a rubbish driver or am expecting too much from my lil clio!?
Bottom line i got beaten by a VTS!!! ...Oh the shame!!
I feel the BBPT turbo conversion calling!! Oh how i want it!!! Oh how i need it!!
Whens the next RR Day gonna be cos i need to find out what my car is pushing out!! Im concerned its under-powered!
