    LONG SHOT!! Blue Saxo VTR/VTS with Dump Valve

    On Tuesday, about 1420pm, coming off the Deeside Industrial Estate, you tried to come up the outside lane on me off the roundabout. Sorry, had to give you a proper run for your money , enjoyed the little race (although it weighed in my favour), heard the DV going and did wonder?

    (For mods, thought this guy may look in here, as it was a clear challenge and a turbo'ed Saxo is clearly petrolhead territory!)

    I never caught a numberplate, just seen a Saxo on the outside and pulling past and thought, "That ain't right?" so booted it.

    vtr/vts turbos r getting common. mate jon had vts turbo in a 106, then he has put turbo on to his gti engine now {confusing i no}. cost bout £3500 n gti takes it to about 180bhp, so goes pretty well

    I still out accelerated it quite easily, which makes you wonder if the turbo Saxo has decent torque or only (headline) BHP?

    Not seen it again since, might try and flag him down next time
