I'm banking on the answer being one of the following:
1. The VTR is quicker
2. you were driving wrong lol.
top end as in 50-80 instead of your 0-60.
On the way home, i was behind a Saxo. We got on a straight & being held up by some guy doing about 45 in a 60. No other car so we both went to overtake.
I've just bought in some clocks & at times i'm not convinced the mph reading is accurate, but i'm not 100% sure, so we'll assume it's true.
As we're overtaking, we're at about 50mph-55mph ish & the gap between us is pretty even & then blatt!!!!!! He's gone. Mine's getting to 80 (speeding, i know, but not wreckless as there was sod all else about at this point & we weren't weaving all over the shop!). He was a good bit off by this point.
Now, i wasn't majorly trying, although i was having a bit of a go. All this time i was in 5th. I can't speak for what he was in. I'm only guessing at 4th, or perhaps dropped to 4th when he suddenly bolted.
Mine's only got the Vec C/panel filter mods with cybox exhaust.
The only thing i noticed on his was that his exhaust wasn't standard. I wondered if it'd been lowered, but wasn't 100% sure.
What should've been the outcome between these 2 at 50-80 then? As i thought the 1.8 was supposed to be quicker than the VTR, but not the VTS??
