    Gaz's mental TB Corsa. In the high 11's now. Will be back this year with an even stronger engine (ran a standard bottom end), more nitrous, F28 box etc. Think he's hoping for low 11's... BEast of a car.

    We love our astra, its a suberb daily drive, but there is nothing like the rawness of a XE/LET corsa/Nova. It truly is an experience to drive, hence why its such a popular conversion.

    No-where near the Astra in terms of handling, needs some good work done to them to get them to go well round corners, but can be done...

    Yeah, Bought the Nova when I was 19, I'm nearly 29 now. From there via a Vectra GSi, Astra 2.2 and now the VXR but still got the Nova.

    I'd love to track mine but that might have to wait until 2008. Going to have a nice big garage to work on it soon - going to fetch out all of the uncessary wiring and re-loom the DTA etc.
    Over 200bhp per ton must be fun - especially as I know very well the attitude of the drivers you then go on to embarress!
    That makes me feel SOOOOO much better about still having my XE Corsa (and the GF LET one) Hence the change of direction and turning D4 into a track car (ish)...

    Think that's where the VXR Monaro comes in!

    The first CLET Nova.

    I've heard its still about and was at one point running over 300bhp but not seen any pics of it for a while.

    That was one rapid motor.
    300bhp in a NOVA!
    Sit back and hold on.
