    1.6 16v vs 1.4 16v

    i raced a 1.4 16v in my 1.6 16v today and there was a noticable difference in pulling away but when we got into about 4th the 1.4 just pretty much stayed with me i was expecting a much bigger difference

    shud the extra 200cc realy make that much difference

    to be fair i dont think theres that much difference, top end there top speeds are pretty much the same but the 1.6 with have the 1.4 on the start line (unless the 1.4 gets a better start!)
