Doubt it was chipped - driver was blatently a rep in a company car. He wasnt losing me at all, but I couldnt gain on him either. Admittedly it was a fairly short lived race that I wasnt expecting (i.e. Id have been in a better gear had I expected him to floor it), but I still think that a 172 SHOULD do better against it. Cant really talk of S3s when cant even beat the bog standard 1.8T!
You were the guy with the Punto Turbo that didnt think the 172 was that fast, all I can say is that I have no problems taking on and staying with a car that has the exact same engine as the 1.8T Audi. Its the Ibiza Cupra,oh did I mention it has over 200BHP and a lot lighter. So I just dont understand!
Well remembered - thats me. I just dont understand either. I wouldnt purposely make my car lose/struggle against cars it should beat. Im starting to think that I may have a seriously underpowered Friday car - it might explain a lot - its definitely run in now and obviously still not performing in the same league that other peoples do.
