  • corsa vs clio 172

    twin exhaust is 182 quick cars very equal to the corsa i would imagine.. clio probs lighter but less torque at a guess

            we came of a slip road and i couldnt shake him it sounded amazing when it went past. i did have my gd hitting me in the arm telling me to slow down like that didnt help the gear changes!........... plus we had just been for a chinese so a bit more extra weight haha

                i managed to keep up with one in my 197 but they are really light which helps big time and when they hit the 5500 rpm theyre off

                  5've played with on before (2 pipes in the middle, whatever one that is), didn't pose a problem really, they're pretty even, except the Clio is so rough around the edges and it looked like his teeth we're going to rattle out when I went past him!

                    Not having a dig or anything mate but rising to that is unacceptable especailly with the GF in the car if you love n cherish her you would never ever put her in danger. I never put my foot down when my GF is in the car even worse when we have the lil one in the back. I only play when its me in the car.

                    Oh and clios no problem with me

                      My mate just bought a 172 so we had a little play the other day.

                      we had a rolling start at about 20mph 2nd gear i pulled away until his power kicked in at higher revs he then started gaining on me but it was pretty much neck and neck, mine was standard he was running 179bhp with race exhaust so standard to standard think i would of just had it.

                      we were mainly just going round the twisties and they sure do handle well.

                        what is the difference between going 70 down a motorway with your gf in the car and racing in a straight line up to similar speeds?

                        fair comment if you are stupid enough to race down lanes etc but you have to be pretty stupid to make something bad out of a straight drag race.

                            i was under the impression the 182s are similar speeds to 197, albeit the 197 has a lil more power but is also heavier.

                            Heading home from a course in Newcastle at 2am I had a play with a 197 down the A1 a while back and he couldnt keep up with me

                            I guess the 182 you encountered could be modified, if it has a turbo conversion it would wipe the floor with you (astra territory) so perhaps just throttle bodies or summot

                              the 182's...are dam quick....and if drivin properly would easily keep up if not beat a corsa on the twisty stuff....maybe not on the straights....it would be close tho
