    Unhappy Got beat by a clio...help!

    Right heres my prob. The other night i had a race with one of my mates who has a clio sport 2.0.....and i got destroyed!!!! What can i do to my standard turbo to beat him. Upgrades etc. not wanting to spend thousands and i live as far away from courtenay and regal as possible so if theres anywhere in scotland it would be helpful. Was gonna start moddin the looks but this has changed my mind.

    cheers

    Has he done anything to his at all? I'm sure I saw a similar thread a while ago, and whilst it was agreed it would be close, I thought the general opinion was that the astra should win....

    Don't be too annoyed, the Clio Sport is a lighter car that's got a fantastic engine and rediculous amounts of grip.

    I was thinking of picking up a 182 Trophy in a few years, they're totally mad. 182hp in a 1 tonne car that's on rails.

    Easy steps...

    Do you have anything in your boot?

    Clean the boot out. Also if your on the chunkier side loose some weight.

    What size wheels are you on? The smaller wheels coud give him an advantage. My mates 1.2 punto was keeping up with me upto about 95mph... On an airstrip that is.

    If you take all the crap out it can be like loosing another person if you boot really is jamed full.

    Smaller wheels would give you a better acceleration Stick some steal 14s on there and you may have a better chance
