I was just wondering what cars not to play with really. I've changed from a 1.0 Corsa to a 1.8 Coupe, its a good feeling knowing that you have a bit of power under the bonnet but I don't really want to embarrass myself
have a se2 1.8 aswell, you can keep up with the flwo of traffic, 110bhp clios you can edge.
fiesta st wil beat you.
keep up with like well beat eg edge 1.6 fiesta z-s mk5, obv 1.6 k4, 1.8 focuses ect cars of similar poers and weights.
Dotn try and take one mk2 red tops ect you will get annialated

I dont condone it either really but its always useful to know. In my Corsa I use to get everyone driving on my bumper expecting me to put my foot down, but with it being a 1.0 its not like I could have anyway. In the Astra however no one has tried it on, which in a way is pretty good.
mkII GTE 8v will beat ya as well, i own a 143bhp SRi G and my mk2 leaves it for dust
iirc the hatchback 2.0 figures are the same as the 1.8 coupe.
The astra coupe 1.8 is a really slow car in my opinion, its more of a motorway cruiser than anything else and can sit at 90 all day long.
Anything small car with 100bhp will give you a hard time but average cars with similar sorts of power will be similar

I dont codone racing at ALL on a public road but its good to know you have power. I have not driven the 1.8 Coupe but have the Hatch G and it was a decent car with good power..
When I got the Coupe Turbo for about 3 weeks I noticed that the amount of people getting up my behind dropped dramatically ( compared to when I had the 2.2 ).. Now tho its all back to normal and I get it all the time.. Its like they think the TURBO badge was purchased from halfords..
Its good to be able to press the accelerator and see em dissapear ( then slow back down to the appropriate speed )..
But as with all cars, there are ones that will wipe the road with ya so you no matter what you drive **cough** That basta*d Mornaro **cough**..

the 1.8 isn't a fast car granted, but if you think it's a "very slow car" you have been very spoiled.
try driving a micra or a 1.4 golf or any number of other cars and then say that the 1.8 is a "very slow car"
