End of the day it was the driver that gave the Clio the edge not the car... The CTR driver did not look very good where as the clio driver wanted to prove something so tried harder.... Thing is once past the Clio did not pull away proving that they are not faster....
I was out in a CTR last night and I think they are much better than 172s..... The engine is amazing and it handles like its on rails.... 150mph up the PRIVATE motorway too
Dont feel bad that youre getting a worse car Steve...
...... yeah he was struggling becasue he never changed to 2nd gear .....hehe and i do hope you mean a GTi anyway someone else with a 106 gti who sort of disagrees with you http://www.civictyper.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3688http://www.civictyper.co.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=3688Quote: Originally posted by jonm on 21 March 2003
Had a CTR struggling against my 106 the other day up to about 80mph. They do look as though they handle well though.

Obviously the clio was faster because it was Silver!! Sunny day, black car absorbing the sunlight, come on if it was a overcast day then it would have been a different result.
Who says CTR drivers are over defensive, Rob!
lol.. i hadnt thought of that..good point
Steve ive already said a 172 is just as quick around a track because ive timed them, accept it
I didnt go mad... people are entitled to pick a car other than clios..Quote: Originally posted by Steve on 21 March 2003
BenR I was just saying....... People on here just like their Clios and thats it... soon as someone says that they like a different car better people go mad....
I like clios and especially 172s and if it was not for them being so small and French doggy build I would have upgraded my Clio to one....
End of the day I want something a little bigger with same kinda performance as a 172..... I want something with jap reliability and good after care service. I want an engine that can take my abuse... I want to buy a car that I dont need to mod..... I like the Type R and im going to get one next!
