    AOC Vs VWOC

    Im afraid its nearly crunch time. My Gsi is running a regal phase 1 and precat only. I managed a 14.54 @ the pod couple months ago (first ever time i done it). That silenced all the critics at work and cemented my place at the top of the hierarchy of fast cars in the car park. Now my mate who has a mk 1 polo, has gone and nitrosed it. Its a 1.3 modified with 80bhp progressive shot making the car about 180bhp. Now he reckons he'll beat me 1/4 time, i think it'l b very close.

    So me: Astra Gsi 250bhp 275ftlb weight 1200kg (removed bits)
    Him : VW polo 180bhp ??unknown torque. 700kg (totally stripped)


    I reckon 14.54 is not the best she'll give me.

    The situation has now escalated from me vs him to me and my owners club, ie us lot, vs him and his vw polo lot.

    Let the drag racing begin!!

    We shall set a date. Who's in?

    Yes but yours can keep on doing the 1/4 at 14 seconds.... He's engine will blow up in a few months if he keeps using it at that bhp lol

    Well TBH power & weight will come to play now. Personally tho he’ll get a good start but I predict you will catch him half way down and win overall.

    When my golfs done ill bring it out to play im not saying what engine is in it but its different

    With the tiny 700kg weight of his polo theres no way on earth that he could put that sort of power down quickly.

    I say that the Astra will win on that basis.

    Also I second/third/whatever on his engine blowing up or gearbox exploding if he does multiple launches. Always love to see that happening to a puddle-jumper lol!

    lol he disagrees, but the times will speak volumes. He;s teasin saying i'll need a phase 2 minimum to beat him, i reckon the mighty beast has one or two tengths of a sec up her sleeve. If i changed gear faster, i only changed up normally on my runs last time.

    180bhp from the 1.3 does sound risky to me.

    As said, I would have thought he would have trouble putting that amount of power down, so although it is light and theoretically quick of the mark I think you'll cain him; even if he does get a decent start.

    Oh, and please take photos if he blows the engine and/or gearbox

    To honest i could be well out but i think he will win. Half the weight will have a big difference. I think he will will by 0.5 seconds if he is a good driver
