  • Corsa vs WRX

    Had a bit of a play tonight with one couldn't get over how well the corsa was and i'am standard for now......it was a proper WRX because you could see all the gauges and the rear diff....on accelaration it was really quick but when i get past him he just couldn't overtake me.....i always thought scoobys where just untouchable up to now,

    but i have also lost against 1 or 2 aswell most of them are tuned i would have thought though

              2003 the WRX was......i would love to see what a stage 1 corsa would be like just out of interest how quick is a 2.0L turbo Nova or corsa i heard these will beat nearly anything on the road.

                      well ive raced 2litre corsas and smoked them, that was standard,
                      now im running fill zaust and linear ipf map, and was out playing with my mate in his impreza P1, he was behind me at the lights, and by the time we got to the end of the road, bout 1/4 mile or so he was just along side me i couldnt stop laughing and neither could he. his words were,, (WOW does your thing sound nice) i just laughed and said, WOW, your things slow aint it, we just laughed and that was that, so guess the little shoe box is quite quick when yer pushing it

                            yeh it is funny, i mean a straight line race side by side he would have bet me, but not by as much as i thought he would of, i had visions of him flying by me, but then 4 wheel drive is good for power delivery but you loose alot of ponnies through all the diffs and props, its about 40-60% you loose, my evo was running 323 at the fly and only 200 odd at the wheels, it was a serios loss, i couldnt believe it,

                              Most imprezas (standard anyway) just don't impress anymore, hot hatches have caught up and in some cases gone past.

                              The scoob WRX's are mostly built for the 0-100 dash, if you catch them on a rolling start the Corsa will be along side, and the Astras would be in front.
                              Again a P1 isn't the fastest thing out there (especially the older ones which over time have lost a bit of that power) I have met a few on the P-road and each time have left it or gone past it, so I would imagine Corsas can't be that much slower if they even are from a rolling start.

                              Th only standard one you don't want to go up against (apart from the homolagation ones) is the STi's, I've came up against 2 and can stay with them and the only chance I have of getting past is at extremely silly speeds.

                              One car I've learned to leave be is The RS4,(would love one) I've tried twice and failed miserebly, leaves me standing and is so much quicker than the E46 M3 in mid-range.
