    Anyone on here? playing with a mk3 GSI LET kast night?

    In Somerset?

    i had a play with one last night, i thought i faired quite well running an estimated 230bhp. it was wet on the private test track and he got past me but didn't pull much on me.

    stopped to have a chat with him and he was amazed how well the little astra did as was i cause i was up against a 15k car with all the little trick bits like traction control. admittedly he did say he wasn't in sport mode, so i asked for a ride in it.

    what can i say, an amazing car loved every second of it so smooth and even power delivery

    but......... i wouldn't change my mk3 for it. it doesn't feel a fast car when your in it, and my mk3 feels like your actually in the moment, fighting the car to get the most from it. the vxr feels like you just sit back, plant your foot and let the car do the talking. great experience!

    I love that, seriously do people think that the sport mode consists of 3 rocket boosters coming out the back or something?

    Yep some people really do!!!

    I had a 'mate' claim all sorts of victories in his automatic Mk5 Astra 1.6 SXI. His stories were all like this

    "... he tried to get passed me, I pressed the sports button, and that was it, I just left him"

    Oh so amusing, tried telling me he could beat my CS2 Mk4 1.8 , with the sports button engaged obviously
