    106 GTI's vs Z20 LET mk4 Astra's

    Theres a dual carrageway near where I live and its on a hill after a round about (it's a private road haha) ... If I kick the 888 hard on the roundabout almost understeering into the kurb i can hit about 110mph by the "flag" or bridge as thats the finishing line. My ex has a 106 GTI and thinks she can hit almost 100mph ... she thinks it has 145bhp from a straight thru exhaust and filter ... now ... thats only 10mph difference from a ZLET Astra over a poxy 106 ... is she telling porkies? My mate (Who is an awesome driver and miles better than me) can hit 110mph in his Astra mk3 GSI Redtop ... surely these cars are alot faster than a 106 GTI ... more than 10mph (UP a hill!)...

    I smell piggy

    According to wise buyers

    BHP 120.0
    Torque (lbs feet) 108.5
    RPM to which the Torque refers 5200
    Maximum Speed 128
    Acceleration (0-60) 8.7

    It must be some exhaust if she's got 25brake off it

    A 106 only weighs 950kg in GTi form, compared to 1350kg of the Astra.

    The wee 1.1 106 I had could do some rediculous speeds, despite being only 65hp - but it was just 835kg. Made some warm hatch drivers look terribly silly.

    106 gtis can run very low 15s on the quarter mile with just an exhaust an filter which is bout the same as a turbod astra,,smaller car less weight and handle great as you prob already know,,10 mph maybe aint much but depending on the distance travelled it could be possible

    a 1.1 raced away from the lights ahead of me, i was quite surprised at how fast the little things could go, i didn't catch up as quick as i would have liked, was a bit embarrassed in my 2.0 tbh
