does anyone realise how ugly it is though? how come they havent got body coloured bumpers or anything ??
nah im not saying i hate them lol, i know there are hundreds of cars better then the 106 - millions better then mine. i just wondered why they didnt have body coloured bumpers seems aparently they have massive engine under the bonnet. (now i know some did lol)
i would still choose any standard 106 over any corsa in my opinion
Then you get the proper sleepers, always remember one from USC last year, Corsa C, completely standard except the huuuuuuge intercooler in the bumper. That shifted.
My corsa had gloss black cav GSI rims, was decked on coilovers. Looked amazing.
my mates corsa red top
youd presume chavvy bullshit, till it pulls past your scooby!! lol
it so needs vectra wing mirrors
ok point tacken - not all are ugly lol
C20let on PH. Looks sweet as. Shame the bloke selling it didn't insure it correctly which is why i can understand people get put of these sort of cars.
Ive beaten a cammed XE'd Corsa GSi and plenty of other XE'd Corsa's. There's loads about in Leicester.
One thing I love about them is when you approach high revs.. The noise it makes is awesooomeee!
I would only ever buy a really mint Corsa GSi, and stick a TB'd XE in it
that red corsa looks sweet
like i said i didnt want to start a big arguement
i HAVE HAD 2 RED TOPS
FIRST BEING A CORSA GSI
SECOND A TIGRA RED TOP
MY GTI WILL KILL THEM
ALL OF MY MATES HAVE RED TOPS AND I MEAN THERES LIKE 5 OR 6 ROUND HERE NONE OF THEM CAN TOUCH ME AND ONE OF THEM IS CAMMED
I EVEN BEAT A EK9 IT HAD A 4-2-1 AND PIPE ON IT, HE WAS AS SHOCKED AS I WAS.
THE ONLY CAR I LOSE TO ROUND HERE IS MY MATES TYPE R
BEAT HIM TO 90- 100 THEN WHEN HE HITS 4TH GEAR HE WAVES AT ME.
RED TOPS ARE WELL OVER RATED AND THEY WILL NOT TOUCH A GTI STANDERD AS MY MATES FOUND OUT HA HA...I WILL HAVE TO GET A VIDEO OF ME DOIN THEM
my old one
right guys enough of the "my gti will rinse anything out on the open road" shite or i'll lock the thread cant be doing with all the bullshit and its not big bragging about racing out on the roads
i still say a well set up XE nova/corsa can still handle really well as the majority of them round here do even my mates nova LEt track car but its only running 220 if that but weighs feck all
drive-thru that corsa is absolutly amazing!!
I love all the ' I can kill this, i can kill that in my 106 gti' It's great.
What i don't understand is, Jamie pug gti apparently a c20xe corsa can not touch your GTi, but a civic type R can? There are plenty of people on here who say 106 GTi are quicker than type R's?
As much as i love 106's, I'm sad to say that one of the fastest cars I've ever been in was a corsa , it made my s1 rallye look it it was going backwards! Granted it was a competition spec 2.1 xe, bodies, plate diff, 4pots etc. In a straight line it left everything, the only thing that challenged it was a db9. as for the twisties, it was amazing! had a few passenger rides up a hill climb fun day and although it didnt handle as well as a 106, the sheer grip and power made up for it and some. Had something like 250 brake, proven 0-60 in 4.9, top speed was wayyyy ofF the clock, i think it ran a 13sec 1/4. It was a quick car and the best thing about it was it looked standard with the only visible mode being white speedlines, it even had plastic bumpers
and no your one of the few that arent in that bracket
EP3 according to the owners club http://www.civictype-r.co.uk/spec.htmIn the May 1998 issue of UK's Performance Car, a true JDM Honda Civic Type-R was tested in a special hot-hatches feature.......
0-60mph : 5.7 seconds
Acceleration (0-60mph) 6.4 secs
So from them figures, even if they aren't accurate, the EK9 is still a hell of a lot quicker than the EP3. So how did you manage to be quicker than an EK9, but not an EP3?
Would have to take quite a bit of difference really, but possible I suppose.
You cant judge a cars performance unless the same driver drives it around the same track, all the "i beat a
F1 car in my 1.1" bollocks is just pub talk..
Ive beaten a few Scooby’s in my 1.3 rallye with just breathing mods, but i know for a fact that my car isn’t "faster" than a Scoob! just that the people driving the ones i beat couldn’t drive. same goes for every car on the track, unless you know the driver and the car well, your never going to be able to make a fair comparison.
Titch, EK9's aren't all they are cracked up to be.
Heres a VTS wiping the floor with one at crail - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLxw54mQCao
Easty can i ask why you still own a GTi? all i ever see you do is slate them.
BTW, EP3 is my favourite car, and I can accept that its slow, and that an EK9 runs similar performance from a less powerful engine.
