Ive just had quite a shock!
My mates just bought an S plate saxo VTR, thought he was gonna whoop me, what with it being a 1.6.
However, different story!
He was 2 up, whereas it was just myself in the clio. His is standard bar a Magnex. Mines chipped, induction kit, and straight through exhaust. Had a few races with him & i can honestly say he could NOT catch me once, not even get slightly closer! I got up to 70 & above on the by-pass but he still couldnt get closer!
He was definitely trying because he had a 1.2 clio before that & hes the sort of driver to always cane it up your jacksy and stay there!
Only possible reason for this happening i can think of is that hes only just got the car so clutch action is not 100% yet, whereas i had mine on the boil throughout.
I know many of you are already thinking either "he wasnt trying", or "thats a load of bo**ocks", but im not the sort of person to come and make bullsh*t claims about beating cars.
He told me himself after he was shocked! As am i coz i honestly thought he wouldve whooped me!
