    Will a Saxo beat my 1.9 cdti if i have Stage 1?

    Hey. The other night me and my mate had a lil "race" off the lights (conditions where good, no-one else about). He's got a Saxo VTR with a BMC air filter fitted. I waz in my 1.9CDTi 150 SRi Sporthatch, but he beat me! By loads!!!! It waz only when we got passed 60 that i started to catch up, but i didn't wanna too much faster than that anyways! I thought i would be quicker...

    What i want to know is:

    * Would i beat him if i had a Remap? And whats the 0-60?
    * Should i have beat him?

    Thanks

    not trying to put you down at all, but you have to remember the drivers ability does make a fair bit of difference,
    not sure on figures but i wouldnt have thought there should be such a big difference as you say?

And to be honest when i said "the other night" i ment the first nite i had it! lol I didn't wanna really shift it throught he gears too quick ect. But i still thought i would win! Havin said that my mate is a pretty ace driver (on the track)

    well figures for the VTR are 9.1 seconds to 60, the 1.9CDTi is 8.3 seconds, so 0.8 seconds if he was really going for it and you weren't the could easily make him win,

    Hmm, interesting... Maybe i'll be quicker now i've driven the car for a few weeks, rather than 40 minutes! lol I know i shouldn't care, but i do! HA!

    Anyone know what it'll be like with a remap?

    when we had the rs6 we would get them trying to race
    i would let them get in front pull along side then fly away an wave at them
    Yes you would beat one with a remap

    just to add i would never go over 30mph in 1st
