    orange/gold coupe v Silver hatch 2.2

    Anyone on here got a orange/gold coupe?

    Living in cardiff?

    Well I spent the afternoon there yesterday and on the way out of some welsh shopping centre and on to the dual carrage way an orange/gold coupe pulled up next to me, sounded like a bag of bolts, bad heat soak from the KnN and got utterly destroyed by me off the lights and up to, say 70mph for legal reasons......

    As the old satnav was flashing speed camera!!! speed camera!!! speed camera!!! I had to back off, but was well impressed with the old girl... Coupe's are no match for the hatch....

    You diagnosed it had heat soak from it pulling up alongside u?

    You noticed it had a K&N from it pulling up alongside u?

    Are you sure you don't mean, a 1.8 is no match for a 2.2? because we're all pretty aware of that.

    Why not play with the big boys and go find a 2.0 Turbo coupe to "race against"?

    You can here the Cone filter working overtime, so I take itís a KnN or some type of cone, and when it came past it stunk of fuel like it was not getting enough air in to it, I maybe wrong but mine was running rich before I put the box and panel back in, and running a cone we know you get heat soak, so I thought it pretty simple to work out.... I cant knock it, it looked the mutts nuts, and was exspecting a little more, but seemed scared that it would not stick around the corner...

    1/4 mile? were go for corners mate, make a route up on a route finder and do timed routs to see who can do it the fastest, thatís what us 200sx guys used to do.... not so much of it round here..... Not breaking the speed limits of course!

    Maybe he didnt see the point?

    Maybe his p£nis is a decent size and doesn't have anything to prove in his car.

    I am planning a trip to scotland around christmas, maybe worth a look for some good roads...

    We dont race, we used to set off 5 mins apart so there was no really daft stuff going on.... more to see who had the better handling and better traction on the road, it was quite hard to push it on some of the roads we were on, track days are ok, and most of the time fun but you seem to get held up half the time by some one in there saxo, I get my knuckles rapped for that...
