Yeah I deleted the thread......it was getting out of hand and basically becoming a slanging match between people, not good for the forum. In hindsight (such a wonderful thing) I should have locked the thread.
I dont find clios a handfull.. just got to know what you are doing.... Its easy with Clios to switch from understeer to oversteer etc.... I love the handling of them.... And there is no way your beat a 172 out a roundabout if i was behind the wheel
I didnt see the thread in question, however I do beleive all this bull was started by Big Bash saying that the 172 was pants going round roundabouts comapared to his 106!
I went out the other night just to confirm that he was infact talking b0locks! It was wet, greasy and the 172 was flying around roundabouts at ridiculous speeds! If a 106 or saxo had decided to join in the fun, they wouldnt have stood a chance!
Consider the FACT I own both a 106 GTI and a MK2 172 and drive them both. Ive tested them both out in the same conditions on the same roads day in day out. This is FACT not what most of you guys base your assumptions on, your friends cars, or ones other people have been driving.
I 100% stand by my statement that the 106 GTI is a superior handling car than the 172, maybe not for comfort, but pure cornering ability.
Yes your right Steve its getting boring now, it just shows the level of intelligence and age of a number of this forums members. I came here to find out more about my 172, only to find that a large number of you lot arent even prepared to accept other peoples knowledge and opinions.
Ill leave all you clio lot to mull over a trackday video taken by one of your 172 fellow owners, notice how he cant even catch, let alone overtake the 106 (and its not even a gti) added to the fact he was being held up by a 306.....Perhaps its time you (not everyone, but enough of you) started to respect other hot hatches around as it wont be long before youll be embarrassed by one. http://www.paul.veryfast.co.uk/172_fastest_lap.mpg
172 Cup = One of the best track cars at the mo - me friends went over to palmersport trackday and most of the driveres were saying that the cup racer was setting faster lap times than evos etc and most where queuing up for another go so to speak! On the other hand 106GTi well.............best not go there again.........there aint really any comparison? LOTUS is the word.........
Sorry, I forgot to leave you the guys web address. This guy actually tracks his 172 on a regular basis, something most of you have not even done yourself, so I think Ill side with his view than yours steve.....Have a good look through his site and look out for the comment on the Integra.
On the IP front, its not me but a colleague from another office up north as we all use the same firewall and proxy masking our real address, I just told him to take come and see what he thought of this forum.
