jon - willy, mailto:14.8@york">14.8@york 1/4 mile, 149 bhp@ the wheels, replacement panel, de-cat,devil exhaust, and i reckon sum1 may have chipped it cos of thespeeds in does in the gears, maybe not tho!
craggy - boggo 52 plate vts showing 1000 miles
paddy - 152bhp @ wheels (as it should be(well almost) 172
adi - zorst de-cat ind, was 117 @ wheels when standard. now its got more.
i know i feel a bit sad but those saxos are damn quick i know people are thinkin the mighty valver cant get beat by a saxo all the boy racer brigade own saxos
but vtss arnt exactly common ive raced hundereds of vtrs but only ever once well twice now come up against a vts and i even thought of one wen looking for my valver but the higher price and insurance cost put me off and i didnt like the interior
plus the 1.6 16v engine is very good and a lot put out more than 120bhp, like i said before off the line a vts with a decent driver i wouldnt be surprised if any valver slightly modded i.e ind kit zorst chip and even cams wont pull away from 1
mine isnt slow i raced clean16v down the lancs and pulled a slight gap his has same mods as mine plus a chip and was roaded at about 145 at the fly
yes adi, and the last vid shows what you can do, i still win, but i dont know how good a start i got cos the vid seems to start in second, i pull away a bit, but its good. shame the start is missed tho!
in fact, that vid is from first and that was your best run, so your ego can get a hike!, even the way paddy and jon fall back will make some people say your closing, but if you watch closely im pulling ever so slightly. but not enough to claim a toast, sure your wheels would even it a bit
Excellent clips there. Well done Craggy, I think your driving style and matrix stylee gear changes give you a little advantage. Would be good if there was another VTS there with a different driver or maybe even to swap cars for a couple of runs. Im certainly starting to doubt if Id have a chance against you! Maybe when I get the head work and cams but I suppose it wouldnt really be fair then!
Adi, someone nicked your reno badge mate. Cars lookin nice too, them clusters look good on the silver!?
think he meant matrix style u go that fast it goes into slow motion heh heh, i got some good starts in as well need to sort out me clutch cable for some better changes, i reckon i could at least make it absolutely neck an neck
i have "raced" with adi and through gears there is nothing between us, on the lancs he was gaining and on A34 i pulled away slightly so it is neck and neck. had mine RR at 144bhp@fly. would love to give u a go from standing start though adi so my chip can hopefully show money well spent......well done to all but sad to see VTS faster
