Well how would you explain how the VTS feels slow compared to a 16v. Its something to do with suspension and the power feed from the pedal.
For instance; set you revs to 4grand in first or 5grand in second in a 16v then floor it. Now that feels FAST! A VTS simply doesnt feel that fast.
I dont believe that a VTS has a more un-even power deliverly than a 16v! Im only goin of what a mate says of his Dads VTS plus racing them. When the 16v gets on the boil after 5grand it can move and goes bilistic through 6 to 7grand! Whereas when racin a couple of VTSs they wouldnt push forward when they got into the zone but have a steady and even acceration pace through the rev range; gradually getting quicker with the revs. Catch me dift. Ive never drove one by the way, but i get a good idea from all the new cars ive driven, plus my mate can be trusted. Wrong?
well mine must be different to theres then cos mine leaps forward at 5k, ask clio 16v boys mate with a modded 16v, soon as i hit the power i reeled him in. all the saxo boys go on about the power band. its about time i beat another valver anyway, hopes seem to be getting high again
Must just be the feel in the car with it being very quiet over bumps or imperfections on the road & the engine not grunting as much. Better balanced suspension so the front end doesnt sit up when flooring it, etc.
A louder noise through suspension fools you into thinking one car is quicker than another cause youd expect it to be goin faster cause the bumps are causing louder noises.
Do you agree with that Craggy? Im sure im not the only geezer who thinks a 16v FEELS quicker than a VTS, or am i? Oh well.
possibly mate but all these things you say apply to the vts, but it doesnt pin you back like my williams, ie, front end lifts, surge of power, but it whistles and screams, doesnt sound deep. but i dont think valvers feel fast to be honest like vtss, possibly feel a bit faster, but hey, feel can be decieving, just watch that little 1.6 make the speedo move fast
