Sorry, maybe I was a little unclear, I wold have let him go if I could have pulled over. I would not have raced him as Im running the new car in. Also I dont think that I should be forced into speeding just to get out of his way!
An astra GTE 16v is a very fast car for what it is! Will do 96mph in 3rd gear and go on to 140mph no problems. Seeing my personal experience with 172s there is no way in hell a 172 would roast a Astra gte 16v on the straight.
Corning on the twisties is a different story, most hot hatches will benefit here.
dont kno about round your way but where i live the astra gte is THE car to have for the local bad boys together with e30 bmws, and there all fuked more rust than metal rattley engines and smokescreens out the back
you occasionally see a nice 1 but otherwise most are knacked ive not seen a good one for ages
Aaronc let it go wont you! Dont make me and Teady drive all the way down south to a meet just to hammer your poor little 16 valver. I had a wee race with a Astra SRi Turbo (new style one) and I had slight edge on him on the straight, do you think you can go toe to toe with a 190-200 HP turbo Astra and beat it?
